NOT OVERHEAT MILK, above 110°F/43°C, as this can kill the yeast. Allow to cool if too hot or add a
little cold milk to cool it off.
If cold butter or margarine is used, cut into 4 pieces, placing a piece into each corner of pan for faster
Start with MEDIUM Bread Color setting the first time you make a 1½ pound loaf. Make a comment at
the bottom of each recipe if you wish to use the LIGHT or DARK Bread Color setting the next time you
prepare the recipe. When making the 1 pound loaf, start with the LIGHT Bread Color setting, making a
comment in the recipe if the MEDIUM Bread Color setting should be used the next time.
An audible alert will sound midway through the knead cycle at the BASIC/SPECIALTY Bread Setting
to let you know when to add ingredients such as raisins, nuts, etc. for specialty type breads. This will
prevent these added ingredients from becoming over mixed or crushed. Simply open cover when alert
sounds and add the ingredients. Close cover. Do not turn bread maker off when adding ingredients.
If you are not adding ingredients during the knead cycle, simply ignore the alert when it sounds.
If bread maker labors during the kneading period, the dough is too dry. Add 1 tablespoon warm water at
a time until the dough softens. Do not add too much extra water as this can cause the bread to collapse or
be under baked. The bread dough should be soft and a bit sticky to the touch after kneading. See
‘Special Notes on Flour Section’ for more details on making minor adjustments during kneading period.
Made with milk for a tender crust and fine texture. Just like Grandma used to make, now you can too!
