 Dual sensors make the difference

 Artisan-style kneading technique

Tailored to your taste

With the YR2540 Bread­mak­er from Pana­son­ic, you have a kitchen helper that is based on over 34 years of expe­ri­ence and excel­lence. Dual tem­per­a­ture sen­sors along with a full range of per­fect­ly tuned fea­tures ensure you get the bread you crave ‒ always in the best quality.

Dual sensors make the difference

The best bread qual­i­ty is thanks to hav­ing just the right tem­per­a­ture. Which is why the YR2540 uses two built-in sen­sors to deter­mine both inter­nal and exter­nal tem­per­a­tures to opti­mise each pro­gramme along at every step. What­ev­er the cli­mate con­di­tions you enjoy the same deli­cious results every time.

Artisan-style kneading technique

The YR2540 brings the bak­ery to your home kitchen. The secret lies in inno­v­a­tive Pana­son­ic tech­nol­o­gy, which repli­cates the knead­ing tech­niques of an arti­san bak­er. The unique knead­ing blade works with the spe­cial­ly placed ribs in the bread pan to deliv­er the best-tast­ing bread with the ide­al texture.

 Creativity with manual settings

 Easy baking with bread mixes

 Four gluten-free options

Creativity with manual settings

Made for sweet or savoury breads and cakes, the man­u­al set­tings help you be cre­ative with­out the has­sle of knead­ing or mix­ing by hand. Cre­ate dif­fer­ent Arti­san-like bread shapes or set the knead­ing and ris­ing times need­ed for your own recipe cre­ations. Then enjoy the deli­cious results.

Easy baking with bread mixes

Sim­ply use the bread mix of your choice, add water and et voila! With the YR2540 Bread­mak­er’s ded­i­cat­ed pro­grammes, fresh bread is easy and has­sle-free. The tasty results will wow you and your family.

Four gluten-free options

The YR2540 Bread­mak­er is ide­al for peo­ple who suf­fer from gluten intol­er­ance or sim­ply want to eat less gluten. Pro­grammes for gluten-free bread, cake, piz­za dough and pas­ta allow you to leave out aller­gens with­out com­pro­mis­ing taste.

    Sent a faulty machine (con­firmed by Pana­son­ic)The media could not be loaded.

     MACHINEIn­ter­est­ing that none of the recent reviews (all Vine ones giv­en the machine free) are good where­as mine (bought at con­sid­er­able cost) shows issues. Per­haps I was just unlucky in get­ting a rouge machine……We’ve been a long term reg­u­lar user of Pana­son­ic bread­mak­ers and hav­ing worn out our last one (our third in about 20 years) recent­ly bought this one. Oth­er than acci­den­tal­ly dam­ag­ing one beyond repair by drop­ping it off the work sur­face we’ve nev­er had a prob­lem with them — they’ve been well built, robust, and reli­able. This one how­ev­er isn’t quite as robust (in par­tic­u­lar the plas­tic lid seems a lit­tle flim­sy). This par­tic­u­lar one also appears to have a seri­ous man­u­fac­tur­ing fault…..On open­ing the top of the bread mak­er it was imme­di­ate­ly appar­ent that remov­ing the bread pan was extreme­ly dif­fi­cult — con­sid­er­able force and much twist­ing back and forth was required. See video that illus­trates the issue. The was tak­en so that I could show the issue to Pana­son­ic cus­tomer ser­vices who have now con­firmed it was faulty.Also attached are two pho­tos illus­trat­ing the pos­si­ble cause. I have no tech­ni­cal exper­tise how­ev­er I believe the ‘arms’ in the bot­tom of the bread bin (yel­low arrows in pho­to) should fit eas­i­ly into the ‘slots’ in the bot­tom of the machine (red arrows in pho­to). How­ev­er, to my untrained eye, it looks like the ‘slots’ have an over­hang of met­al that pre­vents eas­i­ly removal of the ‘arms’. Per­haps either the mould for the met­al was faulty or the met­al has not been filed/finished cor­rect­ly. I have left a detailed review as I though it might help oth­ers if sim­i­lar ill­ness are encountered.Panasonic after con­firm­ing it as faulty sug­gest­ed return­ing it to Ama­zon and obtain­ing a replace­ment (although I hope this won’t be from from the same faulty batch).BREADI nor­mal­ly make Whole­meal and White. Give the dif­fi­cul­ty in extract­ing the bread pan I’ve only done two loaves and as I don’t want to risk fur­ther dam­age to the machine I will wait now until I get a replacement.I have attached a video of the effort required to remove a loaf.Immediate obser­va­tions are that the recipes have altered — eg pro­gram 7 (4 on old machine) has an increase in but­ter from 15g to 20g, and much more sug­ar and salt. The result is a dark­er loaf with crispi­er skin and per­haps a slight­ly lighter tex­ture inside. I may alter the ingre­di­ents in time — I’m not sure I want more salt or sug­ar and was always hap­py with the results from the old machine.I will update this review in time. If I get a machine with­out fault I will prob­a­bly increase to 4/5 star.

    SD-YR2540 The Best Bread Mak­er I’ve Ever BoughtThis is the 4th Bread Mak­er I’ve had in the last 8 years. It is eas­i­ly the best. It is also the most expen­sive. I chose a Pana­son­ic because they are reg­u­lar­ly rat­ed as Best Buys by Which Mag­a­zine, although this mod­el, the SD-YR2540, has not as yet been reviewed by Which. The price quot­ed by Ama­zon was the best i could find, being £40 less than the rec­om­mend­ed retail price. I took the trou­ble to ascer­tain, in advance, with Pana­son­ic UK that spare parts are read­i­ly avail­able for this machine. They are, and I ordered a spare bread pan and knead­ing blade from Pana­son­ic. These are yet to arrive. 11th Jan spare bread pan arrived.The first loaf I baked was the stan­dard white. It was fan­tas­tic, eas­i­ly the best tex­ture and taste of any white loaf i have baked in a machine in the last 8 years. I have sub­se­quent­ly baked anoth­er 2 loaves, to test the var­i­ous func­tions of this machine. I’ve not had chance to taste them as yet, but the loaves looked real­ly good with a uni­form colour all over and a good shape. I’m sure they will taste good.This machine is very qui­et when knead­ing the dough, unlike the 3 machines I had pre­vi­ous­ly. Also it did not creep around the work sur­face when knead­ing, unlike 2 of my past machines.The instruc­tion and recipe book is very detailed, giv­ing the times of each process occur­ring dur­ing the bread mak­ing cycle. It is so much bet­ter than man­u­als I have referred to in the past. This makes using the machine very easy.As yet I haven’t found any down­sides apart from the high pur­chase costs of the machine itself and the spare bread pan and knead­ing blade. How­ev­er this the top of the range Pana­son­ic bread mak­er comes com­plete with all the bells and whis­tles. I sus­pect there will be some func­tions that I rarely / nev­er use, but it willl be use­ful to have those options avail­able to me. The build qual­i­ty looks to be excel­lent and spares are read­i­ly avail­able. This machine should have a lifes­pan of much longer than the aver­age 2 years 8 months of my pre­vi­ous 3 machines. in which case it will jus­ti­fy the extra cost. So far I am extreme­ly pleased.

    Beau­ti­ful­ly sim­ple to use. Good breadThis is my sec­ond bread­mak­er. The first hav­ing been retired sev­er­al years ago.This real­ly is a fire and for­get machine, with very use­ful fea­tures like an auto­mat­ed deliv­ery hop­per for things like seeds etc. and am auto­mat­ed yeast hopper.To add to this, the fact that you can set a timer so that your bread will be ready at exact­ly the time spec­i­fied makes this my per­fect machine.It should be not­ed how­ev­er… It’s huuuuuge

    pricey but worth itsmart look­ing, well put togeth­er, and makes good loaves.buttons are a bit fid­dley at first, but this machine does per­form well. i have the bre­ville ‚also pricey,but that has a bet­ter con­trol panel,and cooks along with the best of them. i bought this mod­el to replace it while i ser­vice it. i have made 2 loafs so far, and both are bet­ter than the bre­ville. the bre­ville takes 3 hour­sand this one takes 4 hours. even on the num­ber 1 set­ting ‚which is basic white set­ting, i threw our nor­mal 70–30 mix of gra­nary and white in there and it cooked a treat. so yes all round. i would have pref­ered a zojirushi,but cant get a uk mod­el. ps. just bought a zojirushi any­way, so will get back lat­er with test results. but this pana­son­ic con­tin­ues to bake well.

    Final­ly a sol­id bread mak­er from Pana­son­ic after Crousti­na dis­as­ter!My pre­vi­ous bread mak­er was Pana­son­ic SD-ZP2000 Crousti­na which I bought in 2019 and had it for 2 years. The most adver­tised fea­ture of that mod­el was a thick, crunchy bread crust like from a bak­er — and it did it very well! The prob­lem is, that every­thing else it failed at…The dough did not grow well, the pan start­ed get­ting sticky after a while and it was impos­si­ble to take the bread out with­out destroy­ing it! This must have been either unpop­u­lar or failed prod­uct from Pana­son­ic, because it went on sale very quick­ly and was sold out with­in 1–2 years from release.Anyway, here comes the newest baby and I can say that the only draw­back of this mod­el is that it does not make the thick, crunchy crust like Crousti­na did. But every­thing else it does so much better!The dough grows beau­ti­ful­ly, it mix­es it incred­i­bly well. I does have a sep­a­rate yeast and “fill­ing” dis­penser, which means that with the pro­gram­ma­ble timer it becomes a very flex­i­ble solu­tion again.This one makes me a won­der­ful bread with any flour.I have recent­ly tried gluten free bread mix­es and oh my gosh, the bread is wonderful!I even mix dough for cakes in it.It has sep­a­rate pro­gramms just for knead­ing, dough rise and bak­ing which means it gives you so much more flex­i­bil­i­ty to pre­pare a bread the way you like.I love it and I think this is the best mod­el Pana­son­ic has released so far!

    This is every­thing I hoped for in a bread­mak­er.I use my bread­mak­er a lot but have noticed with the hot­ter sum­mers that the bread­’s rise has­n’t been as reliable.I chose this because because of the tem­per­a­ture sen­sors and it has­n’t let me down so far, although we haven’t done a sum­mer yet.The bread is amaz­ing. We have only made our dai­ly whole­meal and a cou­ple of fruit loaves, but the tex­ture is the best I have had from a bread­mak­er and it’s so qui­et as it works overnight.It has so far been worth every pen­ny for us.

    Per­fect for (real) sour­dough breadWe love this bread machine. We use it most­ly to make sour­dough bread (real). I could not tell at the time of pur­chase whether it would work for real sour­dough as the recipe that comes with it uses yogurt not lev­ain. We make lev­ain at home and the bread machine does work. Just use the ‘starter’ set­ting to awak­en the lev­ain (which lives in the fridge and is fed week­ly). It is ready after 10–12 hours. Then use your reg­u­lar sour­dough recipe. The ‘sour­dough bread’ set­tings is used for knead­ing and some of the rise. Then ‘rise’ for leav­ing the the bread to rise. Then ‘bake’ to bake it. Super easy. No mess. No work oth­er than chang­ing set­tings through­out the day.

    Great bread­mak­er — sour­dough is a real treatI bought this to replace a 15 year old bread­mak­er that was in reg­u­lar use (and still working..)First loaf we tried was a brioche — fol­lowed the recipe and instruc­tions and it worked per­fect­ly. Nev­er made an enriched dough in a bread­mak­er before but it was real­ly real­ly good.Second up was a recipe I’ve been using for about 6 months for a whole­meal loaf — again perfect.The pan in my pre­vi­ous machine was­n’t quite as non sticky as it had been so to swap to a new machine was great as the loaf comes straight out of the pan — also the knead­ing blade is a lot slim­mer so it leaves less of a hole in the bot­tom of the loaf..then I tried the sour­dough out — you make a starter in the machine which takes 24 hours — I’ve made sour­dough starter before by tra­di­tion­al meth­ods but this was super easy and pro­duced a great bub­bly starter. The first sour­dough loaf was real­ly nice so I made anoth­er — which was a lot sour­er — fine for me but too sour for the Mrs.We then switched onto the white bread recipe from the book and it worked fine — love­ly loaf maybe a lit­tle close tex­tured but ok.I swapped onto the white bread recipe I’ve been using for years with the bread­mak­er on stan­dard crust set­tings — bet­ter tex­ture but over­baked — the crust was extreme­ly crusty.. so we’ll select less well done next time…Very pleased with the machine — the man­u­al is a lit­tle dis­joint­ed as the instruc­tions for mak­ing spe­cif­ic bread is in one place and the quan­ti­ties are a few pages later.

    Not as straight for­ward as you think.I have made two loaves now with this bread mak­er and still not hap­py with the results. Using the recipe in the man­u­al the bread seems a bit dense when using pro­gramme 1. I’ve tried pro­gramme 19 with it just knead­ing the dough and then bak­ing in a con­ven­tion oven and the out­side was crisper but still dis­ap­point­ed with the result.I’m now going to try a Pana­son­ic recipe for bread from the inter­net which gives me dif­fer­ent quan­ti­ties from the man­u­al to see what that is like. I think it is a case of exper­i­ment­ing until you get the right one.It’s dis­ap­point­ing at the moment but will persevere.

    Great bread mak­er!I love this bread mak­er. The dif­fer­ent func­tions on this are amaz­ing and there are so many, ulti­mate­ly it also makes a great load of bread. It lit­er­al­ly comes out per­fect every time. It also adds your yeast and nuts/seeds/fruit auto­mat­i­cal­ly too so no need to wait around keep­ing an eye on it. The delayed timer is per­fect for mak­ing sure your bread is ready when you want it. I’ve been using it every day, takes only a cou­ple of min­utes to put all ingre­di­ents in, set it for when you want it and that’s it! It also looks real­ly nice.
