As Mother’s Day looms near, Panasonic has sought to appeal to Aussie families and amateur cooks, with the release of its first hard crust bread maker for A$469.
Available in stores now, the SD-ZP2000 bread maker pledges “artisanal-quality crust loafs” from the comfort home, for baking beginners to ‘dinner party aficionados.’
The bread makers builds on Panasonic’s thirty year history in the space, and boasts 18 auto-programs encompassing hard-crust loafs, gluten free bread and fruit compotes – all with the touch of a button.
The product incorporates next-gen baking, kneading and dough rising technology, with innovative temperature sensors to replicate a baker’s oven.
One sensor seeks to measure internal temperature, whilst the other assesses ambient room temperature.
“The SD-ZP2000 and its range of next-generation features will give Australians the best possible opportunity to bake delicious bread creations in a simple manner, especially those who love entertaining family and friends in the home,” asserts Chasnyn Ousmand, Panasonic Australia Product Marketing Manager for Small Appliances.
“Panasonic has a strong heritage in baking and the SD-ZP2000 will ensure this easy, new and innovative solution becomes a popular choice for every Australian kitchen.”
Consumers are invited to unleash their creativity, to create loaves coated in sesame seeds, or packed with olives and nuts.
Panasonic claims the SD-ZP2000 trumps other bread makers which only feature a bottom-only heater. The device’s reflective inner lid and central heater surround a ceramic pan to produce stable baking temperature for “consistently crispy and authentic crust.”
