    Panasonic SD-YR2500 Automatic Gluten-Free Bread Maker Review

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    I've now been gluten-free for over 20 years, yet I've never broken down and purchased a bread machine, nor have I ever used one. It should go without saying that I am also eating very mediocre gluten-free bread.

    Recently I was given the opportunity to review Panasonic's new SD-YR2500 Automatic Gluten-Free Bread Maker. This is the first bread maker made by Panasonic specifically for making gluten-free breads. Needless to say, I was very excited to finally get to test out this machine and discover why they are so popular among those who are on a gluten-free diet.

    Panasonic SD-YR2500 Automatic Gluten-Free Bread MakerThe machine arrived undamaged, which was no surprise given how well it was packaged—it was double boxed, and the inside display box included molded Styrofoam that protected the machine very well. It took only a few minutes to unpack and set it up.

    My next step was selecting a recipe to use—I went with one that has been on Celiac.com for many years, and is highly rated. I decided to substitute the different flours used in the recipe with Bob's Red Mill 1-1 Baking Flour, as I didn't have the many different flours listed in the original recipe. Basically I used a highly modified version of a recipe that I've never tried before, and made it in a bread machine that I've never used before—how well could this possibly turn out, right?

    Scott Adams' Gluten-Free Bread Machine BreadI hope you are surprised to learn that, all things considered, it was easily the best gluten-free bread I've ever made, and was light years beyond the packaged stuff I've been eating for years (the company shall remain nameless, but you're probably eating it too!). I think the scientific control that the bread machine offers, for example, the timed mixing and kneading processes, the long rising time and the perfectly even baking temperature help make even a total amateur baker like myself look like a professional.

    My experience with this gluten-free bread machine left me with confidence and the feeling that I can easily improve on an already improvised recipe, and have fun experimenting with different versions of it (I'm going for a rosemary loaf next time!). Overall Panasonic's SD-YR2500 was very easy to use, and the nice thing about this bread machine is that it will do all of the hard work for you. Just add the ingredients select the ideal setting and turn it on. You'll never get sore kneading bread by hand again.

    My first experience with Panasonic's SD-YR2500 was an excellent one, and it made me wonder: Why have I waited so long for excellent gluten-free bread?

    I have used a regular bread machine to make gluten-free bread since I was diagnosed seven years ago. All my bread turns out great and has much more flavor than frozen and fresh breads from a store. Although I use a few good recipes, I've had good success with boxed mixes and my bread machine. And, as a bonus, the house smells wonderful.

    I have a Cuisinart Convection bread maker and have been making gluten-free bread for years. Making your own bread is far superior to store bought and more economical. I use Pamela's bread mix when I'm in a hurry and need bread. It is the best mix and can be used to make many different variety of breads (see the package for more information.) You can buy it at Whole Foods. If your serious about being gluten-free and want amazing bread do yourself a favor and get a good bread machine. It will change your life. Happy baking!

    I noticed they have a Cybermonday coupon code on Panasonic's website today which brings it down to about $235.

     

    Still a bundle but I'm seriously considering it. My (non-gluten-free) husband says he would make it my Christmas present. Do I pull the trigger?

    The first thing I noticed about Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Ona Cookies was their beautiful packaging.
    Ona cookies are "paleo friendly," which means they are made with high quality, nutritious ingredients such as almond and coconut flours, honey and shredded coconut.
    Coconut was the first thing I tasted when I bit into one, which was followed by an accent of cocoa from the cocoa nibs. Their taste made it obvious that these cookies are packed with fabulous ingredients that also happen to be very healthy, and they are perfect for those following a gluten-free and/or paleo diet.
    If you want a healthy cookie that won't leave you with regrets, be...
