All I want for Christmas is a Brand New Breadmaker
Thinking of giving a breadmaker as a gift this Christmas? We think we have the perfect machine for you, whatever your budget!
But which one is best?
It depends what you need. There are bread makers for every budget, but to a degree you get what you pay for, with the more expensive machines tending to produce the most consistent, better tasting bread.
So let’s get started…
The Panasonic SD2501-WXC is superb.
Having lived with it now for the best part of a year, I’ve used it almost every day and the bread has been perfect every time. The loaves are well risen, consistently good and the machine is easy to use.
There’s not much other than positive reviews for the Sd2501-WXC from Panasonic, it is quite simply a quality piece of kit with a host of features to keep even the most demanding baker going.
It’s towards the top end of the market in terms of price, but I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Morphy Richards 48830
You can’t really go wrong with the Morphy Richards 48830. Also called the ‘daily loaf’, it makes slightly smaller loaves of bread, but it is very simple and easy to use and provided you measure everything correctly it’s easy to get good results.
The Morphy Richards 48830 can be had right now for less than £50 from Amazon

Best of the Rest
If you like the look of the Panasonic SD2501-WXC, but feel the price is a little steep, why not take a look at the next model down in the Panasonic range.
The Panasonic SD2500-WXC is identical to the SD2501-WXC except that it doesn’t have an automatic raisin and nut dispenser. You can still make bread with nuts and raisins, you just have to add them manually, either at the beginning or middle of the program. But, if you don’t really need it, you can save yourself about £20.

Kenwood also make a nice range of Breadmakers and tend to fall somewhere between the Panasonics and Morphy Richards in terms of price.
Our pick from the range would be the Kenwood BM450.
It gives the Panasonic SD2501-WXC a good run for the money, and you may prefer it’s looks over the Panasonic Sd2501-WXC.
