I made a rye loaf using the rye blade and I had two problems. Firstly the loaf had a very hard texture and did not taste like a freshly baked loaf at all. Secondly I had difficulties getting the rye blade out of the pan. It was completely stuck and I had to push underneath the pan to get it out. I used Organic Stoneground Rye flour. Should I have used a specific rye flour for break machines instead?

Hi Ms M, we would always suggest purchasing a product in each region, given the differences in power consumption etc. Safety regulations in each country are different.

I have the zb2512 and a packet of Lucke gluten free.
The packet said to follow its instructions and not just press gluten free option on the breadmaker. My question is has anyone made a loaf of gluten free using the laucke packet and just pressed the GF option on the breadmaker?

Hi Dooby, Lucke instructions should be followed as they have tested these methods. As you may have seen the manual also has recipes you can also use for gluten free bread. These can be found on pages 33 and 34 of the user manual.

I never use the Panasonic guidelines. So a large loaf I do on menu 2 and dark brown crust. Takes 2 hours.

Does anyone else have a problem with the noise this machine makes? When it drops the yeast in the mix, it’s like a pistol going off. Even my dogs which are outside, run and hide. I use to set the timer on my trusty old Breville to have fresh bread in the morning. I think I would die of a heart attack if this thing went off in the wee hours of the morning.

Hi BarbB
No, my Panasonic breadmaker did not make a loud noise. However, I do know that it is made in China - not Japan - and quality control / reliability may not be high on their agenda.
Suggest you return it for a refund or ask for a replacement. Hope it is within the 1 year warranty period.

As soon as the lid hinge broke I returned to Myer for a full refund. So I have no experience of buying parts from Panasonic Australia.

I got this few months back. For some reason, my bread loaf always sinking when baking. My previous Panasonic SD2501, I never faced the problem at all. Anyone have any idea to share on why the bread is sinking? Rdgs. Sharon

Shenjen, are you using and following the recipe in the booklet? Do you leave it in the bread maker after it bakes for ages? Is the yeast in date?

I used my own recipe. I used to get a big fluffy bread with the same but not now since coming back fr holidays.

Are you using bread improver and bakers four? that can sometimes be the problem. My bread recipe which I find always works is
2 Cups plain flour
2 Cups Bakers Flour
1 tsp Yeast
1Tbls of Olive Oil
1 tsp Salt
350 mils water (check if too dry and add more if needed)
Good for Pizza dough, Bread Rolls, Loaves etc This is out of a River Cottage Cookbook.
I set it on large loaf and dark crust and just let it rip and get perfect loaf every time.

Hi, do you know what's the difference with Panasonic SD2501 model?

11 settings compared to 17 with the SD-ZB2512. SD-ZB2512 is later model, stainless on the unit outside compared with plastic on the SD2501. Other than more functions, probably not much different. I have an old old Panasonic that still makes great bread despite the coating on the bucket being gone. I have just bought a Panasonic SD-ZB2512 but have not used it yet. If it makes bread as good as the old model then I will be happy. Panasonic seems to make a better loaf of bread than other models which is why I bought another Panasonic.
