Gone are the days of sweating in the kitchen to prepare homemade bread! Why? Because when it comes to making fresh homemade bread it is endless when you have the correct appliance to help you. That is why I own the Panasonic SD-BMS105-SW bread maker.

It may not be one of the Panasonic latest bread makers, but still does wonders when I use it for a good reason it is equipped with some interesting functions that we will be discussing here!

The Panasonic SD-BMS105 is a Great Choice

If you are in need of a basic bread maker that does not have all the bells and whistles, the Panasonic SD-BMS105-SW has proven its worth repeatedly for more than 10 years already. The first time I received this model I was so excited and once I started to know all the functions after going through the language barrier as it is Japanese my bread is smelling good, tastes delicious and looks great (with practice of course.)

Everything you need is laid out on the control panel and easy once you have translated the user manual, (this is important to remember). The appliance bakes all types of bread and is like a small bakery on its own when standing on your kitchen counter. From baking basic bread, bacon bread, cinnamon-raisin bread and more.

The appliance works quietly, but will not say that it works super quiet, as you will still hear a thud or two when used.

Designed with ease of use

This home bakery is made of high-quality material and packed with 30 pre-programmed settings. As previously mentioned, it makes your basic bread, cook jam, and the Japanese favorites Mochi and Udon, pasta, dough, rice bread and more. Alternatively, it has a quick bake option that you will use often as it makes a fresh loaf of bread in less than 60 minutes.

Fits in with any decor

It looks great when standing on a kitchen countertop as its 9.5” x 12” x 13.5” and weighs in at 14 pounds. The color is silver/white and fits in with most décor when utilized in your kitchen. Moreover, you are not only receiving a bread machine but a bread factory that is so versatile to use as each recipe you use has a dedicated setting for making your life easier.

Automatic Features

Another feature you are going to like is the two separate dispensers for the yeast and fruit & nuts that automatically add the ingredients at the right time. While a delay time feature makes it possible for you to bake your bread whenever you are in need of having a fresh loaf of bread and designed with a steam case instead of baking the bread.

Language concern

The only concern would be the Japanese manual and it takes some time to translate it into English. According to some reviewers, there is a similar machine sold in Taiwan and they have Chinese manual on the website that you will have to translate. It does take a time to label your machine, but worth it in the end.

This model makes a perfect loaf of bread – as the inside of the bread is soft with just the perfect crust. Once you have, your bread maker labeled the LCD display screen is easy to operate and has a large display.
