West Bend L4805 Bread Maker User Manual

CAUTION: To avoid burn injury, do not touch cover, vent or sidewalls of bread maker
during the bake cycle, as these surfaces are hot. Do not put hands inside oven chamber or
touch the heating unit after completion of the bake cycle, as these surfaces are also hot.
SLICING BREAD: Always allow bread to cool at least 15 to 30 minutes before slicing.
If you attempt to slice the bread immediately after baking, it will be very difficult to slice
and will be sticky.
STORING BREAD: Since homemade bread contains no preservatives, it does not stay
as fresh for as long as commercially made bread. Store your bread in a plastic bag to keep
it from drying out. Keep the bread at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to one
week. For longer storage, put the bread in the freezer. Slice before freezing so you can
remove only the number of slices you need at a time.
SPECIAL NOTE: The bread pan is not immersible and should never be
washed in an automatic dishwasher. Immersing the pan in water can cause
damage to the bearing in the bottom of the pan that turns the knead bar. Dishwasher
cleaning can reduce the release qualities of the non-stick finish, causing the bread to stick
in the pan.
1.Unplug cord from electrical outlet.
2.The bread pan and knead bar must be cleaned after each use. After the bread is removed
from pan, fill with warm water to cover the knead bar. Set pan in a dry sink or on a
potholder and allow pan and knead bar to soak for 5 to 10 minutes or until knead bar can
be lifted off center shaft. The knead bar must be allowed to soak in water before it
can be removed.
Add a small amount of dishwashing detergent to the pan and wash the inside and knead
bar with a soft cloth or sponge. Empty pan and rinse inside as well as knead bar with
warm water and dry with a soft cloth. Always make sure the shaft in the bottom of the
pan is kept clean. Do not use any type of utensil or tool to clean the gasket around the
shaft in bottom of pan, as damage will occur and result in leakage. Do not use any
abrasive scouring pads or cleansers on bread pan or knead bar as damage to the non-
stick coating can occur. The coating on the inside of the bread pan may change color
over time, which is normal and does not affect the bread or dough prepared.
CAUTION: To prevent the risk of electrical shock, do not immerse bread maker base, its
cord or plug in water or other liquid.
3. Wipe inside chamber and outside surfaces of bread maker with a damp cloth and dry with
a soft cloth if necessary. Cover can be removed for cleaning. Open cover 45 degrees, then
slide forward. Wipe cover with a damp soapy cloth and dry. Do not immerse cover in
water or place in automatic dishwasher for cleaning as water will get in between the
parts and can cause damage.
After cleaning, replace cover by aligning attachment bar into hinge on back of bread
maker. Cover should move freely up and down after being replaced.
