Gluten Free Bread

The International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) featured a new gluten-free bread maker from Panasonic that should make the life of people with celiac disease easier. Although it is often cheaper to make your own bread instead of buying the overpriced gluten-free store versions that crumble as soon as the bag opens, many people find it difficult to create delicious loaves at home. The SD-YR2500 model promises to make ugly, tasteless bread a distant memory.

Panasonic showed off its SD-YR2500 bread maker at CES in Las Vegas, but consumers have to wait for September to be able to purchase it. Nevertheless, it may be worth noting the machine’s features and considering it. The new Panasonic bread maker has a special gluten-free baking mode that allows you to experiment with multiple recipes. It also includes a separate yeast dispenser, nut dispenser and external temperature sensor.

Panasonic claims the bread maker can adjust temperatures on its own by collecting external data to make sure the bread turns out perfect. The machine has 16 baking modes and promises to make your pizza dough or French bread turn out better. A product manager at the company states that gluten-free bread can turn out fluffy in this machine. If this is true, then it would be a welcome change from the usual crumbly, dry and flat breads stuck on most celiac disease menus.

There are other bread machines currently available on the market that make similar claims. If you do not want to wait for Panasonic’s version in the fall, you can try the Cuisinart CBK-100 programmable bread maker which has a special gluten-free setting or the Zojirushi BB-CEC20 Home Bakery Supreme 2-Pound-Loaf machine with programmable settings. The Oster Expressbake bread maker also comes with a gluten-free setting.
