I was intrigued when I first saw the release of the Panasonic SD-2500WXC bread maker as it looked and sounded very much to me like the excellent SD-2501 model.
So, I made it my business to find out what was so different about this new bread maker.
As with the SD-2501WXC it has the new design shape that allows the bread pad to be placed in the machine from front to back.
It too has a variety of different benefits such as 9 bread and dough modes, a jam and compote mode, a speciality mode and being able to bake three different loaf sizes.
The Panasonic SD-2500WXC bread maker also has a 100% gluten free mode.
So, so far no different than the SD-2501 model!
So, what is the difference?
There is in fact one quite distinct difference between the two models. Well two actually!
The first difference is that the Panasonic SD-2500WXC bread maker has no raisin nut dispenser. It simply bleeps to let you know when its time to put these ingredients into the machine.
And the second difference? The price!
The Panasonic SD-2500WXC bread maker is a good 20 pounds cheaper than the SD-2501 model (depending where you but it from).
So if you are looking for the quality and benefits that the SD-2501 bread makers offers, but you do not want or need the raisin nut dispenser, then the Panasonic SD-2500WXC bread maker is the one for you!

Unfortunately you are not able to set the timer on the dough only programs. There is no raisin nut dispenser, only a bleep that lets you know when its time to put these ingredients in. The end of cycle beep may be too quiet for some people and unfortunately there is no facility to adjust the volume.
