Questions About The Breadmaker :
What do I do if the mixing paddle stays in the loaf?
Is this normal? How do I remove the paddle?
The mixing paddle may stay in the loaf when the bread is
removed from the bread pan. This happens because the crust
forms around the paddle during the baking process. Allow
the loaf to cool before removing the mixing paddle (the inside
of the loaf is VERY HOT- you may burn yourself if you try to
remove the paddle too soon.)
When the loaf has cooled, use a plastic spoon or rubber
spatula to remove the paddle. Gently insert the
spoon/spatula into the bottom of the loaf and loosen the
crust from the paddle. Pull the paddle out. DO NOT use a
sharp object (knife, metal utensil) as it will scratch the
non-stick coating on the mixing paddle.
What do I do if the mixing paddle is hard to
remove from the baking Pan after baking?
Remove the Baking Pan from the unit and fill with hot water
allowing it to soak for 30 minutes to an hour.Next,pour out the
water,turn the Pan over and wiggle the Paddle loose while
holding the winged coupling on the bottom of the Pan.Using a
toothpick or soft kitchen brush clean out any dough left in the
hole of the Paddle.
Is there any time that I should not use the delayed
Yes, when the recipe calls for perishable ingredients such as
milk, cheese, buttermilk, or eggs. These foods should not stay
at room temperature for an extended period of time. With
some recipes, you may substitute powdered milk.
Can I open the lid while the breadmaker is
This breadmaker is designed with a window in the lid to let
you watch your bread's progress. Quick checks are fine in the
early stages of operation and of course to add ingredients
when the beeper sounds. However, don't open the lid too
frequently during operation as the change in air temperature
may cause the loaf to fall. Avoid opening the lid once the
baking period begins—the last hour of the cycle. Sometimes
condensation forms on the window after initial mixing and
kneading. It usually disappears once the baking cycle starts
so you should be able to get a clear view of your rising loaf.
Where is the OFF button?
Since the breadmaker shuts off its "processing" automatically
once the bread or dough cycle is complete and the "Keeps
Warm" cycle ends, there is no OFF button. However, the
power light will remain on until the unit is unplugged or the
Start/Reset button is pressed and held.
If the power goes out while I'm in the middle of a
breadmaking cycle, will my Breadmaker continue
to process my bread once the power comes back
The breadmaker will only finish making bread if the power
returns within 20 seconds. Unfortunately, if your power
outage is longer, you will have to discard the unfinished bread
and start the process from the beginning.
What is the minimum and maximum time cycle
can be delayed?
You can delay baking for a maximum of 13 hours for any
bread type setting except rapid bake. The rapid bake setting
is designed to bake bread in under 2 hours.
The minimum time you can delay baking is one minute
longer than the completion time for the selected bread type
Questions About Ingredients/Recipes :
When do I add raisins, nuts, etc. to the bread?
This breadmaker has an "Add-Ingredient" function that
signals with an audible tone to let you know when you may
add raisins, nuts, caraway seeds, etc. ( NOTE: The time of the
tone varies from one setting to another. Consult the
"Add-Ingredient" chart on page 10.) The "Add-Ingredient"
feature helps reduce the breaking up of added foods . If you
are using the Timer and it is more convenient, you may add
ingredients at the start.
May I use a sugar substitute in place of sugar?
Sugar is necessary for the yeast to produce a light loaf with a
good height. Results may vary with the type and amount of
sugar substitute used. If you are going to use an artificial
sweetener choose one that is aspartame based rather than
May I omit the salt or sugar from the recipe?
No, both the sugar and salt play an important role in the
bread making process. Salt prevents the yeast from
over-reacting and the bread from over-rising. The
combination of sugar, salt, and yeast is a very important part
of the bread making process. Remember that the total sugar
and salt amounts are divided among all the slices, so the
amount of sugar and salt per serving is small.
