How To Use Your Breadmaker
Slicing & Storing Bread
For best results, allow loaves to cool on a wire rack
15 to 30 minutes before slicing. You may use an
electric knife (such as the Black & Decker Slice
Electric Knife Model EK300) for even slices.
Otherwise, use a sharp knife with a serrated blade.
Store bread tightly covered (resealable style bags or
plastic containers work well) at room temperature
up to three days. If weather is hot and humid, store
in the refrigerator. For longer storage (up to one
month), place bread in a tightly covered container in
CAUTION: To avoid electric shock, unplug the unit
and allow the Breadmaker to cool before cleaning.
For best performance and maintenance, it is
recommended to clean the breadmaker after each
use as follows:
Outer Body and Oven Chamber:
Wipe the outer body of the unit with a damp cloth
or slightly dampened sponge. Use a damp sponge
or cloth to wipe out any flour, crumbs, or other
materials from the oven chamber.
This unit has a removable
Lid for easy cleaning.
Open the Lid halfway and
pull it out towards you.
Wipe it with a damp cloth
or slightly dampened
sponge. DO NOT
IMMERSE THE LID in liq-
uid. Clean the viewing
window with a moist soft
cloth (not paper towel),
then be sure to wipe it dry.
CAUTION: DO NOT clean
window with a commercial glass cleaner!
When reinstalling the lid, be sure the posts on the lid
are fully inserted into the slots on the hinge of the
Breadmaker. This will prevent damage when
closing the lid. If you feel resistance when you try to
close the lid, stop immediately and reposition it.
The lid should close easily without any force being
the freezer. If you store the bread in the refrigerator,
leave it out to bring it to room temperature before
serving. Since homemade bread has no preserva-
tives, it tends to dry out and become stale faster
than commercially-made bread.
Leftover slightly hardened bread may be cut into
1/2"(1.27 cm) or 1" (2.54 cm) cubes and used in
favorite recipes to make croutons, bread pudding, or
Care & Cleaning
Baking Pan and Mixing Paddle
Both the Baking Pan and Mixing Paddle have a non-
stick coated surface. Do not use any harsh cleaners
or utensils on these parts as scratching may occur.
Over time, the non-stick surface may change in
color due to moisture and steam. This is normal
and has no effect on its use or quality.
Remove the Baking Pan and Mixing Paddle from the
oven chamber before cleaning. Wipe the outside of
the Baking Pan with a damp cloth. Be careful not to
damage the rubber seal under the shaft. NEVER
TOTALLY IMMERSE THE BAKING PAN in water.
You can hand wash the inside of the Baking Pan
with soapy water. The Mixing Paddle should be
removed from the shaft and the depressed area
under the Paddle cleaned. If the Mixing Paddle is
hard to remove from the Baking Pan after baking, fill
the Pan with hot water and let 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.
CAUTION: None of the breadmaker parts are
dishwasher-safe. DO NOT place the Baking Pan,
Removable Lid, or Mixing Paddle in the dishwasher.
Storing The Unit
Be sure to dry all parts before storing and wipe any
moisture from the Viewing Window. To prevent loss,
you may want to store the Mixing Paddle on the
shaft. Close the Lid and do not store anything on
top of the Lid.
