CAUTION: To prevent personal injury, always use oven mitts to remove the hot
bread pan from bread maker and when removing the baked loaf of bread from pan.
Invert bread pan and shake until loaf falls out on cooling rack. Knead bar will normally
stay in place when bread is removed, but may on occasion slide out with bread. If bar is inside loaf, remove before slicing.
Cool bread for at least 15 to 30 minutes.

period, it will automatically shut itself off after three (3) hours and the on light will go out.

HOW TO USE DOUGH SETTING: The dough setting will prepare dough for hand shaping/forming and baking
in your own oven. Use this setting when you wish to make dinner rolls, cinnamon rolls, donuts, bread sticks or your own
favorite dough recipes. The time delay can be used with the dough setting. The crust color button does not apply to the
dough setting.
Follow these steps when using the dough setting:
1. Position knead bar onto shaft in bottom of pan. Make sure knead bar is pushed down onto shaft. Twist slightly if needed
to drop bar in place.
2. Add ingredients to pan in order listed in recipe, MAKING SURE to add any liquids first, butter or margarine next,
followed by the dry ingredients and then the yeast on top. After dry ingredients are added, tap pan to settle ingredients, then
level ingredients, pushing some of the dry mixture into corners of pan. This will prevent any liquid from seeping up from
the corners. Make a slight well in center of dry ingredients and add the yeast to the well. This is especially important when
using the time delay to prevent the yeast from getting wet too soon.
