Maz B

Maz Basked

My old Breville has finally died and I am looking at the SD-2501. The manual just tells you that it bakes Medium, Large and Extra large loaves. What is that in loaf size? Beville let you make 500, 750, 1 kg loaves

How do I adapt other recipes?

Thanks
Marie

Why are some of the bread recipes only for a one size? Also. When baking caked, it’s so tedious to line the bucket! Any good ideas of how to do that?

Hi Kathy, there isn't a specific setting on this unit for this option and we don't have a recipe for this specifically, so would be more trial and error unless someone in the community is able to share their experience with you.

I have tried making rye bread several times and it is a dismal failure. The other breads have been great. What is the problem? I have weighed carefully, used the right blade and followed all instructions....help.

Hi Nuritt, sorry it is very difficult to answer your question as to why it is just the rye bread that you are having trouble with.

I have a Panasonic sd-2511 with great results for 3 years. Paddle started to get v lethargical and now it doesn't turn at all. I opened up inside and undid screwdrivers but can't really access to ascertain what's going on. Removed screws in 4 feet but this doesn't give me access. How can I mend my beloved machine?

Hi Elaine, this model doesn't have a sour dough function on it. It would be trial and error if you are able to get it to work as per the instructions on your starter mix.

Look up the manual, page 6. Raisin nut dispenser can be used only with menu 03, 06, 14, 17, 19 and 25. Also, look up page 14 for more details.

Elvieasked

We have had three loaves that haven't risen, flour and yeast stuck to the bottom and only a third the size, in summary inedible. The yeast is in date and the flour is from an organic farm called doves farm and has previously worked beautifully. Any suggestions as to why?

Elvie

First you put the warm water in the tin, then flour and yeast, salt and oil if required by your recipe. I also add a bit of sugar and improver for rye and multigrain bread. That is the basic how you use the Panasonic SD-2501. Make sure use the correct kneading blade and ensure the blade is correctly seated on the shaft, otherwise there is no mixing, no kneading.

Yes, just remember to remove the blade from bread before you slice it.

Thank you, I have found adding a little oil on the kneading blade helps

I lost the regular paddle while moving house. Can I still make white bread using the rye bread paddle or will it not work?

Hi Ryan, it will work but may not have the same consistency. You can purchase new spare parts for your bread maker via our spare parts distributor network.
