Panasonic Bread Maker SD-YD250 Product Description
The Panasonic breadmaker mixes and kneads the dough, gives it the proper time and temperature to rise, and then bakes the bread to perfection. Ingredients load easily from the top, and the lid locks closed while the machine is in operation.
The YeastPro automatic yeast dispenser adds the yeast to the dough at the exactly the right time. A beeper signal is also available to signify when to add fruits or nuts at the correct time therefore ensuring that these ingredients aren’t crushed during the kneading process.
The easily read LCD display and the soft touch push button control panel on the Panasonic Bread Maker has settings for basic breads, whole wheat, multi-grain, French bread, rolls, pizza, and cake. You can also program the timer for baking up to 13 hours in advance.
If you are in a hurry, the rapid bake setting reduces baking time for basic and whole-wheat breads. The bake only setting turns off the mixing and kneading functions to bake gingerbread, teacakes, or fruitcake. If power is interrupted for less than 10 minutes, internal power protection allows the baking process to resume. The Panasonic bread maker also has its own safety fuse built in.
The SD-YD250 has a microprocessor program that makes adjustments as needed for climate and room temperature. It also has a temperature control program that adjusts timing and temperature at each stage of the baking process. These two programs combine to produce the best possible results.
Also in the interest of producing the best results, Panasonic designed their bread machine without a viewing window. Eliminating the window allows for more even heat reflection which results in better rising of the dough and a better crust with more even color.
The Panasonic Breadmaker provides 550 watts of power, measures 14 inches wide, 13.5 inches high, and 9 inches deep. The baking pan has a wire handle for easy removal from the machine, but use an oven mitt as it will be hot. The pan’s nonstick coating allows baked goods to slide easily from the pan and also allows for easy cleaning. The kneading blade, located in the base of the baking pan, allows for thorough mixing and kneading.
