ALERTS, SOUNDS and OTHER GENERAL FUNCTIONS
Alert: The alert sounds:
•
At the pressing of any button that allows function selection. If the button doesn’t
beep, that function choice is not available.
•
During the second kneading cycle of the “BASIC,” WHOLEWHEAT,” and
“SWEET” programs to signal that the cereals, fruit, nuts or other ingredients can
be added.
•
When the end of the program is reached.
•
During the warming phase at the end of the baking procedure the alert sounds
several times.
Power Interruption: If there is a brief power interruption of less than five minutes,
the program position is stored in memory and the machine will resume when the
power is restored.
5
Over-temp Error: If the display shows “H H H” after the program has been started, it
means that the temperature inside of bread pan is too high. You should stop the
program and unplug the power cord immediately. Open the lid and let the machine
cool down completely before using again.
•
A small amount of smoke and/or odor may occur upon heating due to the
release of manufacturing oils – this is normal.
•
Some minor expansion/contraction sounds may occur during heating and
cooling – this is normal.
KNOW YOUR INGREDIENTS AND MEASURE ACCURATELY
Although bread making seems very basic, it is a science and the proportions of
ingredients are critical. The most important step in using your bread maker is to
measure the ingredients precisely and accurately. Read the following information to
better understand the importance each ingredient plays in the bread making process.
Always make sure the ingredients are fresh.
•
Measure the liquid ingredients in see-through measuring cups with
accurate markings. Place the cup on a flat surface and measure at
“Eye Level,” not at an angle. All measurements must be accurate.
Always use liquids between 80-90°F (27-32°C) to assure optimal
yeast activity.
•
Spoon the dry ingredients into the appropriate measuring cups or
spoons, and then level off with table knife. All ingredients measured
in measuring spoons and cups must be level, not rounded or
heaping.
•
Never scoop measuring cups into dry ingredients.
This will
compress the ingredients into the cup and cause the dough to be dry
which will result in a short loaf of bread.
BREAD FLOUR should be used in your bread maker. It contains more glutenforming proteins than all-purpose flour and will provide well-formed loaves with good
structure. Several different brands of bread flour are available. Do not use selfrising or cake flour in your bread maker.
WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR can be used in your bread maker using the
“WHOLEWHEAT” bread setting. Whole wheat flour contains the entire wheat kernel,
including the bran and germ. Therefore, breads made with 100 percent or a high
percentage of whole wheat flour will be lower in height and heavier in texture than
bread made with bread flour. The “WHOLEWHEAT” setting on your bread maker is
programmed to better develop the structure of wheat breads for optimum results.
RYE FLOUR can be used in combination with bread flour in the preparation of rye or
pumpernickel bread. However, it cannot be used alone as it does not contain
enough protein to develop adequate gluten for structure.
SUGAR and OTHER SWEETENERS provide food for the yeast, add height and
flavor to the bread and give the crust a golden color. Types of sweeteners that can
be used include sugar, brown sugar, honey, molasses, maple syrup, corn syrup and
fruits, dried or fresh. Do not use artificial sweeteners as a substitute for sugars and
other natural sweeteners; the yeast will not react properly and poor results will be
attained. When measuring sticky sweeteners, such as honey, coat the measuring
spoon with vegetable oil before measuring the sweetener. This will allow the
sweetener to slide off the spoon without sticking.
MILK enhances flavor and increases the nutritional value of bread. Any type of milk;
dry, whole, 2%, 1%, skim, buttermilk or canned evaporated milk can be used in
6
making bread. Refrigerated milk may be warmed to 80-90°F (27-32°C) however do
not overheat (above 100°F, 38°C) as this could affect the yeast activity. Do not use
regular milk when using the “Time Delay” function. Use dry milk and water as a
substitute.
WATER used in combination with dry milk can be substituted for regular milk and
must be used when using the “Time Delay” function as regular milk can spoil when
left at room temperature for several hours. Use lukewarm water, about 80-90°F (2732°C). Do not use water above 100°F (38°C) as this could affect the yeast.
BUTTER, MARGARINE, SHORTENING and OILS serve several purposes in bread
making as they tenderize the bread, add flavor and richness. Butter and margarine
are interchangeable in recipes. Butter and margarine can be used right from the
refrigerator. Cut cold butter or margarine into smaller pieces for faster blending
during the knead cycle. Low-fat or fat-free bread can be made by substituting equal
amounts of unsweetened applesauce or plain yogurt for the amount of fat
recommended in the recipe. Using less fat will affect the height, tenderness and
texture of the bread, which is normal.
EGGS add color, richness and leavening to bread. Use only large eggs. No
premixing is needed. Egg substitutes can be used in place of fresh eggs. One egg
equals ¼ cup of egg substitute. To reduce cholesterol, you can substitute two (2)
egg whites for a large egg in the recipes without affecting the end result. Watch the
dough during the knead cycle as some minor adjustment may be needed to get the
dough to the right consistency.
SALT has several functions in making bread. It controls yeast growth while
strengthening the gluten structure to make the dough more elastic and also adds
flavor. Use ordinary table salt in your bread maker. Using too little or eliminating the
salt will cause the dough to over rise. Using too much can prevent the dough from
rising as high as it should. “Light” salt can be used as a substitute for ordinary table
salt, providing it contains both potassium chloride and sodium. Use the same
amount as recommended for table salt. When adding salt to the bread pan, add to
one corner to keep it away from the yeast, especially when using time delay as the
salt can affect the yeast activity.
YEAST is a living organism, which through fermentation, feeds on carbohydrates in
flour and sugar to produce carbon dioxide gas that makes the bread rise. Active dry,
fast rising or bread machine yeast can be used in your bread maker. Use only the
amount stated in the recipes. Using a little more can cause the dough to over rise
and bake into the top of the bread maker. Fast rising yeast and bread machine
yeast are virtually the same and interchangeable with one another. Do not use
compressed yeast as poor results may be obtained. A ¼-ounce envelope of yeast
contains 2¼ teaspoons. Yeast can also be purchased in bulk so you can measure
the exact amount needed. Once opened, keep refrigerated. Always make sure
yeast is fresh and has not passed the “Use By” date.
SPECIAL NOTE ON FLOUR: How to make minor adjustments for dough: All flours
are affected by growing conditions, milling, storage, humidity, etc. While not visibly
different, you may need to make some minor adjustments when using different
brands of flour as well as compensating for the humidity in your area. Always store
bread flour in an airtight container. Store whole grain flours, whole wheat and rye, in
a refrigerator to prevent them from becoming rancid. Measure the amount of flour as
directed in each recipe, but make any adjustments after the first 3 - 4 minutes of
continuous kneading.
7
SPECIAL NOTE ON CINNAMON AND GARLIC: Adding too much cinnamon or
garlic can affect the texture and size of the loaf obtained. Cinnamon can break down
the structure of the dough, affecting height and texture. Too much garlic can inhibit
the yeast activity. Use only the amount of cinnamon and garlic recommended in the
recipe.
CHECKING THE DOUGH: Making changes to the dough is easy. This can be done
during the knead cycle only. Do not turn off the breadmaker to adjust dough.
•
Touch the dough. If it feels a little sticky and there is a slight smear of dough
under the knead blade, no adjustment is necessary.
•
If the dough is very sticky, clinging to the sides of the pan, and is more like a
batter than a dough, add one tablespoon of flour. Allow the flour to be mixed
completely into the dough before making any more adjustments. To prevent
heat from escaping, open the cover of the bread maker only to add flour.
•
The the dough is dry and the bread maker appears to be laboring, add one
teaspoon of lukewarm water. Allow water to be completely mixed into the
dough before making any additional adjustments and keep lid closed to keep
heat in the appliance.
Dough is “just right” when it is smooth in appearance, soft to the touch, leaves a
slight residue on your finger, and the bottom of the bread pan is clean of dough
residue.
CREATING ARTISAN BREAD CRUSTS: Just before the bread baking cycle begins,
open the cover of the bread maker and carefully brush the top surface of the dough
with a lightly beaten egg white that has been mixed with 1 teaspoon of water. If
desired, slash the top of the dough ¼ to ½ inch deep with a sharp knife into desired
design. Leave plain or sprinkle with seeds, herbs, grated parmesan or romano
cheeses, or other desired toppings. Press toppings gently into the dough to ensure it
adheres and will not fall off. Close the cover and allow bread to bake.
For best results, use only the beaten egg white with water to treat the crust before
the bake cycle begins. This mixture will ensure that toppings will stick and not fall off
when bread is removed from the pan.
Do not use vegetable oil cooking sprays to treat crusts, as the cooking sprays can be
flammable when exposed to the bread maker’s heating unit.
Crust can also be treated after bread is done baking. Remove bread from the bread
pan and place on a rack. Lightly brush the top of the loaf with melted butter,
margarine, olive oil, or vegetable oil and sprinkle desired topping on to the bread’s
top.
BASIC STEPS IN MAKING BREAD
Always clean your new appliance thoroughly before using. Refer to “Cleaning
your cook’s essentials™ Breadmaker” section.
1. Select and insert the bread pan; use either the single bread pan or the dual
bread pan. Note: Do not make loaves larger than one pound in the dual bread
pan. Place the non-stick coated bread pan in the middle of the baking chamber.
When the bread pan is pressed lightly in the center the fixing device locks into
place. To remove the bread pan, pull with medium force on the bread pan
carrying handle. CAUTION: The handle is hot after baking. Use oven mitts or
hot pads when removing a hot bread pan.
2. Position the knead blades on to the shafts in the bottom of the bread pan,
matching the hub shape with the shaft shape. You may need to twist the bar
slightly for the knead blade to drop in place. Make sure the knead blades are
pushed down on the shafts all the way.
3. Add ingredients to the bread pan in the order listed in the recipe; liquids first,
8
then the butter or margarine, next the dry ingredients and finally the yeast. For
best results level the dry ingredients before adding the yeast.
4. Plug the breadmaker cord into a 120 volt, AC electrical outlet ONLY.
5. Use the “MENU” button to select the desired program menu.
6. Use the “LOAF” button to select the desired loaf size.
7. Use the “TEMP” button to select the desired crust darkness.
8. If desired, use the “TIME” button to set the elapsed time for when the program is
to be completed.
9. Press the “START/STOP” button to begin the program. After the breadmaker
has been turned on, the programmed setting cannot be changed without
canceling the program. To change the setting, hold the “START/STOP” button
down until the alert sounds. Then program the control as desired and turn back
on.
10. When the bread is done, an alert will sound. Turn the breadmaker off by holding
the “START/STOP” button down until the alert sounds. Unplug the cord from the
electrical outlet. If the breadmaker is not turned off after the cycle is complete,
the breadmaker will automatically go into a one hour “Keep Warm” mode. If the
machine is not turned off after the end of the “Keep Warm” period, the machine
will turn itself off.
11. Remove the bread pan. CAUTION: The handle is hot after baking. Use oven
mitts or hot pads when removing a hot bread pan.
12. Invert the bread pan and shake gently until the loaf falls out. Place the bread on
a rack to cool 15 to 20 minutes. The knead blades will normally stay in the
bread pan when the bread is removed, but may on occasion slide out in the
bread. If the knead blades are inside the loaf, remove with the included hook
before slicing. CAUTION: The knead blades are very hot, remove with care. If
making another loaf of bread right away, be sure the machine is turned off and
allowed to cool 15 to 20 minutes with the cover open.
Special Instructions for “Home Made”: The “HOME MADE” setting is perfect for
the user who is familiar with the intricacies of making bread at home and wants to
customize their own settings.
1) Press the “PROCESS” button once and “KNEAD1” will appear on the display;
then press the “TIME” button to adjust the minutes. Press “PROCESS” again to
confirm the time for the first kneading cycle. Press “PROCESS” again to advance to
the next step. Note: To advance the time more rapidly, press and hold “TIME.”
2) “RISE1” will now show on the display. Press the “TIME” button to adjust the
minutes. Once the desired time has been set, press “PROCESS” again to advance.
3) Continue until you have customized all settings. Press “START/STOP” to exit
programming, then press again to begin the cycle.
Note: Your breadmaker’s memory can remember your customized homemade
settings unless power is lost for more than 5 minutes. When “HOME MADE” is first
selected, the default setting is the same as BASIC.
High Altitude Adjustment: Reduced air pressure at high altitudes causes yeast
gases to expand more rapidly and the dough to rise more quickly. The dough can
rise so much that when it begins to bake, it will collapse due to overstretching of the
gluten structure. To slow the rising of the dough, reduce the amount of yeast by ¼
teaspoon at a time until you find the right amount. You can also reduce the amount
of liquid by a teaspoon or two. Some experimentation will be needed when using
your breadmaker at high altitudes.

CLEANING YOUR cook’s essentials™ BREADMAKER
1.
Unplug the cord from the electrical outlet and allow the appliance to cool
completely before cleaning.
2.
Immediately after the bread is removed from the bread pan, fill the bread pan
half full with warm water and a small amount of dish soap. Allow the bread pan
to soak for 5 to 20 minutes or until the knead blade can be lifted off of the shaft.
You may need to twist the knead blade slightly to loosen. If the knead blade is
difficult to remove after soaking, secure the cross bar on the underside of the
bread pan while twisting the knead blade to loosen. Wash the inside of the
bread pan and knead blade with a soft cloth, rinse and dry. Use a mild
detergent. Never use chemical cleaning agents, oven cleaners, abrasive
scouring pads, or cleansers on the bread pan or knead blade as damage to the
coating or finish can occur. Replace the knead blade on the shaft.
3.
Never immerse the bread pan in water or wash in an automatic
dishwasher as damage to the bearing that turns the knead blade
can occur. Wipe the inside of the oven chamber and the outside
surfaces of the breadmaker with a damp cloth if necessary.
Never dip the appliance in water or fill the baking compartment
with water! The lid cannot be removed for cleaning.
NOTE: The coating on the inside of bread pan may change color over time; this is
normal and does not affect the bread.

After the dough is cooled, remove from the bowl and place on a lightly floured surface. Roll the
dough into a ½ inch thick rectangle. Divide the dough into 8 equal sections, roll each piece into
a ball and punch a hole through the center with your finger. Stretch the hole until it is about 1-2
inches in diameter. Place formed bagels onto a greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
Brush lightly with cold water, cover and set in a warm, draft free room to rise until they have
doubled in size.
Bring 3 quarts of water to a boil in a 5 qt dutch oven. Add the sugar and stir to dissolve. Reduce
heat to low and carefully add 2-3 bagels to hot water. Let simmer for 3-4 minutes on each side.
Remove with a slotted spoon, drain, then place on the greased baking sheet about an inch
apart. Sprinkle with garnish, if desired, and bake bagels in a preheated 450°F (232°C) oven for
12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool slightly before serving.
