Program #2: French
The French bread program makes traditional
crusty French bread recipes.
Program #3: Whole Wheat
The Whole wheat program is used to make bread
with primarily whole wheat and whole grain flour.
Program #4: Sweet
The Sweet program is used when making sweet
breads.
Program #5: Express
The Express bread program is a preset reduced
time program that makes a 2 1/2 pound loaf of
basic white bread in 1 hour and 20 minutes, from
start to finish. Use this program when short on
time. You cannot select and change the size nor
the loaf color when using this program.
Program #6: Gluten Free
The Gluten free program is used to make breads
that are gluten free, for those people who are
intolerant to gluten. The bread pan should always
be thoroughly cleaned to avoid any risk of
contamination with other flours. In the case of a
strictly gluten-free diet, be sure that the yeast is
also gluten-free. Because of the consistency of
dough made with gluten-free flours, the dough
tends to stick to the sides of the pan. Therefore, it
must be scraped down with a flexible plastic
spatula during kneading. Gluten-free bread will
be of a denser consistency and paler than
traditional breads.
Program # 7: Salt Free
The Salt free program is used to make breads
without salt.
Program #8: Rye
The Rye program is used to make rye bread using
primarily rye flour or breads which use a variety of
seeds.
Program #9: Baguette
The baguette program enables you to make
dough for 4 individual baguettes that you will
hand shape and then bake in the bread maker.
This program has 2 steps.
Step #1: Kneading and rising of the dough
Step #2: Baking of the baguettes
(See Making Baguettes section, page 15 for details)
Program #10: Cake
The Cake program can be used to make cakes
that use all-purpose flour and baking powder,
not yeast.
Program #11: Jam
The Jam program automatically cooks jams and
stewed fruits in the bread pan.
Program #12: Pasta
This program only mixes dough for foods like
fresh pasta.
Program #13: Dough
The Dough only program kneads and rises dough
for pizza , rolls, and hand shaped sweet breads
that you will bake in a conventional oven.
Program #14: Warming
The Warming program is used for only reheating
or additional baking. The time ranges from 10 to
70 minutes, adjusted by 10 minute intervals.
This program is used to:
- warm breads or to make them crusty.
- finish baking in the event of a power outage
during the baking cycle.
This program does not allow you to bake
baguettes.
The bread maker should never be left
unattended when using this program.
The program can be stopped or cancelled
manually by pressing the on/off button.

Signal for Adding Additional Ingredients
You can add additional ingredients like cheese, dried fruits and nuts to the bread dough towards the end
of the final kneading cycle for programs 1 - 10 (EXCEPT Express-Program 5). A beep indicates when
to add the ingredients.
See the Cycle Chart on page 23 to see when the ingredients should be added. The “Time Displayed for
Add ins” column indicates the time that will be shown on the display screen when the signal beeps.
The following are the basic ingredients that you will use to make bread and dough, along with some important
tips and suggestions. Be sure to read this information, use fresh ingredients at room temperature and
measure carefully using measuring cups and spoons designed for cooking.
Flour:
• For best results always use “bread flour” or
“flour for bread machines” rather than allpurpose flour when making breads that use
white flour as they are specially adapted for
making bread, unless otherwise specified in the
recipe.
• Always check the yeast packet expiration date
and discard any expired yeast.
• The recipe proportions indicated are for dried
yeast. If you use fresh yeast, multiply the
quantity by 3 (in weight) and dilute the yeast in
a small amount of warm water with a little sugar
for more effective results.
• Whole wheat or whole grain flours and blends
make for heavier dough that rises less and has
a denser texture.
• Depending on the quality of the flour, baking
results may also vary. Always store flour in airtight containers as it reacts to humidity in the
air, absorbing moisture or losing it.
• Never sift flour when making bread and
measure carefully.
• Never scoop flour directly from the canister
since air pockets can form and you will have
less flour than called for in the recipe.
• Always spoon flour into the correct-size
measuring cup a spoonful at a time.
• Mound flour and level it off with a knife.
• Never pack down flour.
Water:
• Water, as do all liquids, rehydrates and
activates the yeast. It also helps the gluten, a
natural protein found in wheat and other grains,
to develop when dough is kneaded. The gluten
is what gives bread its chewy texture.
• Chemically treated water high in chlorine or
fluoride, or very hard or soft water, can
adversely affect the yeast.
• Chemicals and hard water slow down the rising
process while soft water can make the dough
extra-sticky. If you find this to be a problem,
replace the tap water with bottled water.
• Water can also be totally or partially replaced
with milk or other liquids.
• All liquids must be at room temperature.
Warming
After baking, for programs 1 through 10 (EXCEPT Express-Program 5), the bread maker will
automatically go into a keep warm cycle for 1 hour. The indicator light (E) will be displayed. After an
hour, the bread maker will beep three times and automatically shut off.
The control panel will display 0:00 during the warming cycle. The appliance beeps at regular intervals.
To end the cycle, unplug the appliance.
Yeast:
• Yeast is what makes the dough rise. You can
use any of the following yeasts: active dry yeast,
quick-rise yeast or bread machine yeast.
• The quality of yeast can vary, and it does not
always rise the same way. Bread can therefore
come out differently depending on the yeast
used.
• Old or poorly stored yeast will not work as well
as a freshly opened packet of dry yeast.
• All opened, unused packages of yeast should
be closed tightly or stored in an air-proof
container or plastic bag in the refrigerator or
freezer.
Milk:
• Recipes can use either liquid or powdered milk.
• Milk enhances the flavor and gives bread a
softer, ivory-colored texture.
• You can substitute the water called for in any
recipe with an equal amount of liquid milk.
• Many Basic Bread recipes call for powered milk.
It is important that you use powered milk as it
provides a better texture.
• 2% or fat-free milk provide the best results.
• Yeast does not have to be at room temperature.
8
9
UNDERSTANDING HOW YOUR BREAD MAKER WORKS
Eggs:
• Eggs make the dough richer and give it a more
golden color.
Salt:
• Salt flavors the bread and regulates the yeast's
activity by slowing the rising action.
• All recipes provided with your bread maker were
developed using large eggs (1 large egg =
approximately 1/4 cup of liquid); if your eggs are
bigger, reduce the amount of liquid called for in
the recipe accordingly. If they are smaller, use
more liquid.
• Use table or kosher salt when making bread.
• If you want to add eggs to a recipe, you will
have to reduce the quantity of liquid
proportionally. Break the egg/s into the
graduated beaker or a glass liquid measuring
cup, and then add liquid until you reach the
quantity of liquid indicated in the recipe.
Butter or Oil (fat):
• Fat makes the bread softer and tastier.
• Too much fat slows down rising.
• If you use butter, soften to room temperature
and cut it into small pieces so that it is
distributed evenly throughout the dough.
• You can substitute 1 tablespoon of butter for 1
tablespoon of oil.
• Do not use hot, melted butter.
• Keep the fat from coming into contact with the
yeast, as it can inhibit the yeast from activating
properly.
• Do not use coarse salt or salt substitutes.
• Salt should not come into contact with the
yeast.
Additional Ingredients (soft cheeses,
dried fruits, nuts, herbs, etc.):
You can add a personal touch to your recipes by
adding a variety of additional ingredients. When
adding ingredients, be sure to:
• Add them following the beep for additional
ingredients, especially those that are soft such
as dried fruits.
• Add items like whole, shelled nuts and seeds at
the start of the kneading process to ensure
even distribution.
• Thoroughly drain moist ingredients like canned
or fresh fruits and vegetables and olives.
• Do not add too large a quantity of additional
ingredients, especially cheese, fresh fruit and
fresh vegetables, as they can affect the
development of the dough.
• Finely chop nuts as they can cut through the
loaf structure and reduce the cooked height.
• Do not use low fat spreads or butter substitutes.
Sugar:
• Sugar acts as food for the yeast, flavors the
bread and can improve browning of the crust.
• You can use white sugar, brown sugar, honey or
real maple syrup when making bread.
• Do not use unrefined sugar or cubes.
• Artificial sweeteners cannot be substituted for
sugar as the yeast will not react with them.
10
Ready to Use Bread Mixes:
• Ready-to-use bread mixes can be found in
many local grocery stores. Follow the
manufacturer's instructions when using these
mixes.
• Usually, the choice of the program will depend
on the type of mix purchased. For example:
Whole Wheat bread - Program 3.
TIPS FOR GOOD BREAD AND DOUGH
1. Instructions and recipes:
• Read all instructional materials that came with
your bread maker and understand how the
appliance works.
• Bread made in your bread maker is of excellent
quality. However, it will be different than store
bought or bakery bread. The bread will be
chewier and the crust thicker and crisper.
2. Ingredients:
• Use fresh ingredients at room temperature.
• Make sure that the yeast has not expired and
was stored properly.
• A common error is to think that adding more
yeast will make the bread rise more. Too much
yeast makes the structure of the bread more
fragile; the dough will rise too high, too quickly,
and then collapse while baking. Always use the
amount specified in the recipe.
• All ingredients must be at room temperature
(unless otherwise indicated) and must be
measured exactly.
• Place all ingredients into the bread pan in the
exact order given in the recipe.
• Yeast should not come into contact with liquids,
fat, sugar or salt.
• Liquids should be between 70° to 80°F, under
normal baking conditions. In case of high heat,
use liquids that are cooler than usual,
approximately 68°, but no colder than 65°F.
Likewise, if it is cold in your kitchen, it may be
necessary to warm up the water or milk (never
exceeding 90°F).
• When making bread using the Express Bread
program, the liquid should be 90° to 104°F).
3. Measuring:
• Measure ingredients using kitchen measuring
cups and spoons.
• Spoon flour into the measuring cup and level off
with a knife.
• Always measure liquids with the graduated
beaker included with your bread maker or a
glass liquid measuring cup.
• Use the double spoon supplied to measure
teaspoons on one side and tablespoons on the
other.
• All spoon measures are level and not heaping.
• Incorrect measurements will give poor results
therefore do not sift dry ingredients or pack
them down.
4. Weather:
• Weather conditions can affect how the bread
comes out.
• Flour is very absorbent. Recipes may need to
be adjusted and more flour added during periods
of high humidity.
• You may have to use less yeast (1/4 to 1
teaspoon less, depending on the loaf size) and
cooler water (68°F) when it's very hot out.
5. Altitude:
• High altitude affects how the dough develops
and the bread rises.
• If baking bread at 3,000 feet above sea level,
reduce the water or liquid by approximately 1
tablespoon every 1,000 feet above 3,000 feet; do
not decrease by more than 4 tablespoons.
6. Consistency:
• For best results, check the dough once it begins
to come together. It should form a smooth yet
sticky to the touch ball which comes away easily
from the walls of the bread pan.
• If all of the flour has not been blended into the
dough, add a little more water, a tablespoon at a
time, up to 4 tablespoons.
• If the dough is too wet and sticks to the sides,
you may need to add a little flour, a tablespoon
at a time, up to 4 tablespoons.
7. Crust and Baking:
• Always select medium crust color unless making
bread that has a high sugar or fat content, then
you might want to choose light.
• If you plan to bake a second loaf, always open
the lid and wait 1 hour before beginning the
second loaf.
• For the baguette program, you have to bake the
dough within one hour following the beeping
signal after the kneading and dough rising
stages. Beyond that time, the machine resets
itself and the baguette program is lost.
8. Power failure:
• If there is a power failure or the machine is
accidentally unplugged while making bread, the
machine has a 7-minute protection time during
which the settings are saved. The cycle will start
again where it left off. Beyond that time, the
settings are lost.

Starting The Bread Maker
• To start the bread maker , press the
button. (Fig. 8b above) The bread
maker will start mixing and the time corresponding to the program will be
displayed. The successive steps will take place automatically, one after the
other. The countdown clock tells you how much time remains until the bread
or dough will be ready.
Using The Delayed Start
• By following the below steps you can program the bread maker up to 15 hours in advance to have your
bread ready at the time you want. This function cannot be used on programs 5, 6, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14.
Note: With the delayed start program do not use recipes which contain fresh dairy or fruit as
these ingredients can spoil overnight.
1. First, choose the program, crust color and loaf size. The program time will be displayed on the panel.
You will now need to calculate the time difference between the moment when you start the program
(the current time) and the time when you want your bread to be ready. For example, if it is currently 8
pm and you want your bread to be ready at 7 am, the time difference is 11 hours so you will need to
program 11:00 hours onto the display.
Note: The bread maker automatically calculates the time to begin the bread making process

HOW TO CORRECTLY USE YOUR BREAD MAKER
Here is an example when using the delayed start program:
Let's say it is 8 pm and you want your bread to be ready for 7 am the next
morning, eleven hours later. Program 11:00 using the (+) and (-) buttons.
Press the
button. A beep will be emitted. The indicator light (9) switches on
and the timer colon blinks. (Fig. 11) The countdown begins. If you make a
mistake or want to change the time setting, hold down the
button until it
beeps and the default time is displayed. Start the operation again.

To get to know and understand your bread maker, we suggest making a basic bread recipe and
baguette recipe.
To make the SANDWICH LOAF recipe, use preset Program 1 (loaf size 2.5 pounds, medium crust color)
Fig. 12
• At the end of the cycle, the program stops automatically and the End of
Baking Cycle symbol (F) comes on.
• To stop or end a program underway or cancel the delayed start, press and
hold the
button for 5 seconds. (Fig. 12)
Taking Bread Out Of The Pan
• Unplug the bread maker at the end of the cooking or warming cycle.
• Lift the bread pan out of the bread maker by pulling on the handle. Always
use oven mitts as the bread pan and handle are hot.
• Remove the hot bread from the pan by gently shaking the pan upside down.
Place the baked loaf on a cooling rack for at least 1 hour to cool before slicing.
• If the kneading paddles remain in the baked bread loaf when it is removed
Fig. 13
from the loaf pan, use the hook accessory (16) as follows:
1. While the bread is still hot, lay the bread on its side
(use oven mitts here as well)
2. Insert the hook in the hole of the kneading paddle and pull gently to
release the kneading paddle. (Fig. 13)
Tip: You can remove the paddles before the baking cycle begins (see cycle
chart for time) if you do not want them to be baked into your bread. Please
be sure to handle the dough gently so you do not compromise
its quality. You can also lightly oil the kneading paddles before adding the ingredients.
Understanding The Bread Maker Cycles
The bread maker will go through several cycles after you have selected the type of bread you want to
make. The following explains these different cycles.
KNEADING: Mixes the ingredients and develops the elastic dough structure.
REST: The dough has to rest after kneading so that it can rise better.
SANDWICH LOAF RECIPE
Ingredients:
1-1/3 cups Water
2 Tbs. Oil
2 tsp. Salt
2 Tbs. Sugar
2 1/2 Tbs. Powdered Milk
4 1/4 cups Bread Flour
1 1/2 tsp. Yeast

The timer will count down and the bread making process will begin. The
bread will be ready to remove in 3 hours and 20 mins.
• Remove loaf pan from bread maker. Remove loaf from pan and cool on
baking rack before slicing.
BAGUETTE RECIPE
For this 2-step recipe, you will need the bread pan and the baguette accessories: baguette baking rack
(12), two non-stick baking trays (13), finishing blade (18) and brush (17).
To make the Baguette recipe, choose Program 9, medium crust color.
Ingredients:
2/3 cup + 1 Tbs. Water
1 tsp. Salt
1 3/4 cup Bread Flour
1 tsp. Yeast
RISING: Yeast, after mixing with liquid, produces CO2 which is trapped in the dough creating air
pockets that make the dough rise.
BAKING: Stops the dough from rising anymore and transforms it into a loaf of bread with a golden,
crispy crust and chewy crumb.
14
WARMING: Keeps the bread warm after baking while still in the bread maker so that the loaf does not
become soggy. However, it is recommended that the bread be removed from the pan
promptly after baking so that the crust is crisper.
15
MAKING A BASIC BREAD & BAGUETTES
Step 1 : MIXING, KNEADING AND RISING OF THE DOUGH
• Add ingredients to the bread pan in the order listed and place pan in the
bread maker.
• Press the
button repeatedly to select program (9).
• Select the crust color Medium. (Fig. 16)
• Press the
Button. (Fig. 17)
• The indicator light comes on and the timer colon flashes the time remaining
to the end of the dough making process. (Fig. 18)
• The dough kneading cycle will being, followed by the rising cycle.The
automatic mixing, kneading and rising of the dough takes a total of 1 hour
and 21 minutes.
• During the kneading stage, it is normal for the dough not to be evenly
blended.
• The bread maker will beep several times indicating that the kneading and
rising of the dough is finished and the operating indicator will blink. (Fig. 18)
• Once the dough is ready, the machine stops and you have up to one hour to
remove and hand shape the dough and then press the start button to begin
the baking process.
Note: If you do not initiate the baking process by pressing the start
button within one hour, the machine resets itself and you will not
be able to bake the baguettes in the bread maker.
Note: The bread maker will also beep several times indicating when
“add-ins” should be added. This time is indicated on the cycle chart
(page 23) and should not be mistaken for the end of the
rising cycle (the time to remove the dough).

7) Once you have shaped the baguettes, lay them on the non-stick trays with Fig. 20
the seam sides down
(Fig. 20)
8) For optimal results, make 1/2 inch diagonal slits on the top of the
baguettes with the finishing blade or a serrated knife or scissors
(Fig. 21 & 22)
9) Using the brush, generously dampen the top of the baguettes with water,
while avoiding any accumulation of water on the non-stick trays.
10) Place the two non-stick trays onto the baguette rack. (Fig. 23)
Fig. 21
11) Set the baguette rack in your bread machine. The bread pan is not needed
in this baking step.
12) Press the
button once again to resume the program and start baking
the baguettes.
13) At the end of the baking cycle, unplug the bread machine.
14) Remove the baguette rack. Always use oven mitts as the rack is very hot.
15) Remove the baguettes from the non-stick trays and let them cool on a rack.

Step 2 : SHAPING AND BAKING THE BAGUETTES
• Remove the bread pan from the machine.
• Sprinkle a little flour on your work surface.
• Remove the dough from the bread pan and put it on your work surface.
• Gently punch the dough to deflate.
• Roll the dough into a ball and, using a knife, divide it into 4 equal portions
(Fig. 19)
• Let the dough rest 5 minutes before shaping them.
1) Flatten the dough into a rectangular shape, approximately 1/2 inch thick.
2) Fold the longest length in half, facing you.
3) Starting at one edge of the rectangle, press the dough together with the palm of your hand
throughout the length of the rectangle. You will get a thinner, more even rectangle.
4) Flip the rectangle over.
5) Fold the longest length in half again, facing you. The thickness and width of the dough must remain
even.
6) Roll the dough with your hands into a baguette shape, without pressing too much. The length of the
baguette must not be longer than the length of the non-stick baking tray (approximately 7
inches).

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
• Unplug the appliance and let it cool down to room temperature.
• Clean the body of the appliance with a damp sponge. Dry thoroughly.
• Wash the bread pan, the paddles, the baguette holder and the non-stick plates in hot water.
• If the kneading paddles remain stuck in the bread pan, let them soak for 5 to 10 min.
• Remove the lid to clean it with hot water.
• Do not wash any part in a dishwasher.
• Do not use household cleaning products, scouring pads or alcohol. Use a soft, damp cloth.
• Never immerse the body of the appliance or the lid in water.
