I have a Panasonic... but I am not so impressed with it... funny little shaped loaves, don't you reckon?

Yeah... mindblowing stuff. Makes you wonder really, if the vegies are not just 3D projections or painted silicone or something... I have a feeling that lot wouldn't notice. The artisans on ish could have a whole new market.
