New Panasonic breadmakers

Which? breadmakers expert Lisa Galliers says: 'Both Panasonic and Morphy Richards launched new ranges earlier this year, and we know these are popular brands with our members, so couldn't wait to get the new models tested as soon as possible.

'All the breadmakers we test are put through their paces by baking several loaves of white and brown bread using different settings. 

'We test standard baking settings as well as the delay setting and rapid bake options, although we tend to find results using this latter setting aren't great.'
