Multiple reviews mentioned that Panasonic SD2501WXC has superb user reviews with 100% of buyers recommending this bread maker to others.

14 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic SD2501WXC

14 More Auto Programs

The Panasonic SD2501WXC has 25 auto programs, however the Ariete 132 only has 19 auto programs, the Kenwood BM260 only has 11 auto programs, the Russell Hobbs 23620 only has 12 auto programs and the Tower T11001 only has 13 auto programs. More ...

'Auto Programs' denotes the amount of built in programs that your bread maker will come with. These allow for the easy creation of everything from loaves and rolls to more specialist types of bread, and even non-baking foods like jam or risotto.

The more programs on your bread maker, the more versatile it'll be, and the more foods you can cook with it.

Jam Making Function

The Panasonic SD2501WXC has a jam making function, and so does the Kenwood BM260, however the Ariete 132, the Russell Hobbs 23620 and the Tower T11001 do not. More ...

Strange but true: bread makers are also very good at making jam. They provide heat and a constant source of stirring, which makes them perfect for easy jam making. Some advanced bread makers come with this program built in.

While you may not use it every day, an auto jam making function on your bread maker will make creating homemade jam super easy!

Variable Crust Browning Control

The Panasonic SD2501WXC has a variable crust browning control, and so do the Ariete 132, the Kenwood BM260 and the Russell Hobbs 23620, whereas the Tower T11001 does not. More ...

A variable crust browning control is a system that allows you to choose exactly how cooked you want the crust on your bread. You can usually choose between light, medium and dark.

How cooked the crust is on your loaves is an entirely personal preference - this gives you the ability to bake bread exactly the way you want it.

Delayed Start Timer

The Panasonic SD2501WXC has a delayed start timer (as do the Ariete 132, the Kenwood BM260 and the Russell Hobbs 23620), however the Tower T11001 does not have this feature. More ...

A delayed start timer is a special system that only starts the bread cooking after a certain time has passed. You can load in ingredients, and then after a set delay (1 hour, 3 hours, etc) the device will get to work.

Delayed timers are helpful because it allows you to load up ingredients last thing at night, then set the timer so you wake up in the morning to freshly-baked bread!

Better Kagoo Score

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Ariete 132

Variable Crust Browning Control

The Ariete 132 has a variable crust browning control (as do the Kenwood BM260, the Panasonic SD2501WXC and the Russell Hobbs 23620), however the Tower T11001 does not have this feature. More ...

A variable crust browning control is a system that allows you to choose exactly how cooked you want the crust on your bread. You can usually choose between light, medium and dark.

How cooked the crust is on your loaves is an entirely personal preference - this gives you the ability to bake bread exactly the way you want it.

Delayed Start Timer

The Ariete 132 has a delayed start timer, and so do the Kenwood BM260, the Panasonic SD2501WXC and the Russell Hobbs 23620, but the Tower T11001 does not. More ...

A delayed start timer is a special system that only starts the bread cooking after a certain time has passed. You can load in ingredients, and then after a set delay (1 hour, 3 hours, etc) the device will get to work.

Delayed timers are helpful because it allows you to load up ingredients last thing at night, then set the timer so you wake up in the morning to freshly-baked bread!

Cheaper by $18

The Ariete 132 costs $17.53 less than the Kenwood BM260, costs $142.65 less than the Panasonic SD2501WXC, costs $66.58 less than the Russell Hobbs 23620 and costs $72.41 less than the Tower T11001.

Newer by Two Months

The Ariete 132 was released four years after the Kenwood BM260, released two months after the Panasonic SD2501WXC, released 16 months after the Russell Hobbs 23620 and released two months after the Tower T11001

5 Reasons Against for Choosing the Ariete 132

Only 19 Auto Programs

The number of auto programs on the Ariete 132 is 19, but the Panasonic SD2501WXC only has 25 auto programs. More ...

'Auto Programs' denotes the amount of built in programs that your bread maker will come with. These allow for the easy creation of everything from loaves and rolls to more specialist types of bread, and even non-baking foods like jam or risotto.

The more programs on your bread maker, the more versatile it'll be, and the more foods you can cook with it.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Ariete 132 has only received a Kagoo Score of 69, however the Kenwood BM260 scored 86, the Panasonic SD2501WXC scored 88, the Russell Hobbs 23620 scored 84 and the Tower T11001 scored 80.

Less Retailers

The Ariete 132 is only stocked by 1 seller, whereas the Panasonic SD2501WXC is stocked by 3 retailers and the Tower T11001 is stocked by 2 sellers. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this bread maker remaining in stock.
Higher Running Costs Over Five Years by $9

Over five years the running costs of the Ariete 132 are $81 which is $9 more than the Kenwood BM260. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

Ariete bread makers have an average rating of only 55.2%, whereas Kenwood has an average rating of 64.3%, Panasonic has an average rating of 95%, Russell Hobbs has an average rating of 64.9% and Tower has an average rating of 67.6%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the 132 in the US is $20.42 but in total we found only 1 price for it.
