Tailored to your taste

Dual breadmaker temperature sensors make the difference

The best bread quality is thanks to having just the right temperature. Which is why the YR2540 uses two built-in sensors to determine both internal and external temperatures to optimise each programme along at every step. Whatever the climate conditions you enjoy the same delicious results every time.

Artisan-style kneading technique

The YR2540 brings the bakery to your home kitchen. The secret lies in innovative Panasonic technology, which replicates the kneading techniques of an artisan baker. The unique kneading blade works with the specially placed ribs in the bread pan to deliver the best-tasting bread with the ideal texture.

Creativity with manual settings

Made for sweet or savoury breads and cakes, the manual settings help you be creative without the hassle of kneading or mixing by hand. Create different Artisan-like bread shapes or set the kneading and rising times needed for your own recipe creations. Then enjoy the delicious results.
