Removing Cooked Bread from the Bread Maker

When the baking is complete, the unit will automatically switch to the Keep Warm setting for up to 1 hour. Press and hold START/STOP button for 2 seconds to end this cycle before removing the bread pan.

When the timer says the bread is done, the bread and baking chamber will be hot and oven mitts should be used. Remove the bread pan by lifting the handle and turning it counterclockwise to unlock it from the chamber base.

Carefully shake the bread upside down until the loaf falls out of the bread pan. Allow loaf to cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before slicing.

Fresh baked bread is best when consumed as soon as possible. To store, wrap the cooled unused portion in foil or a plastic bag to preserve freshness. Bread can be frozen for up to six months.

Questions People Are Asking About This Product

Below is a sample of some of the questions people asked about this bread machine.

Question: Is it noisy?
Answer: You definitely know when it’s mixing and kneading. It thumps and bumps and whirs. These sounds are not overly loud or offensive. There are several periods of beeping to alert you to add raisins, seeds at the proper time and at the end of the cycle to remind you to remove the loaf.

Question: What material is the paddle made out of?
Answer: Teflon coated aluminum and is quite sturdy.

Question: How much “waste” in the loaf from the paddle? Like how big/deep is the cavity from the paddle?
Answer: Not really anything is wasted just a small hole like the size of a quarter or less then it’s really not a hole either.

Question: Does your bread comes out very dark and hard from bottom even in light crust setting? 
Answer: Sounds like you might be adding too much flour. Be sure to scoop the flour with a spoon into the measuring cup and then level off with the straight edge of a butter knife. Do not scoop the flour with a measuring cup or pat it down. It’s very important not to pat it down because this will cause the bread to have too much and it will be heavier and with a weird texture. Also, be sure to refrigerate the bread yeast if you have a jar and you’ve opened it. Be sure any packets of bread yeast haven’t reached their expiration date. Be sure not to forget to add the salt, oil, sugar. Do not leave anything out. Follow the recipe exactly, be sure to add the flour to the cup correctly and your bread should turn out delectable.
