Although the bread maker is capable of making 1.0lb
(0.5kg), 1.5lb (0.75kg), 2.0lb (1.0kg) or 2.5lb (1.25kg)
loaves, we recommend the larger sizes. The ingredient
quantities for the 1.0lb (0.5kg) loaf may not fill the
bread pan to the ideal volume for a uniform loaf. This is
especially true for breads that contain whole grains or
other special ingredients. This is why some settings have
limited or no loaf size options.
The loaf sizes - 1.0lb (0.5kg), 1.5lb (0.75kg), 2.0lb (1.0kg)
and 2.5lb (1.25kg) - are a guide to the size of the loaf
only. Different ingredients will affect the actual weight
and size of the baked loaf.
For example:
A 1.0lb loaf baked with fruit and nuts will be heavier
than a plain 1.0lb loaf.
A 1.0lb 100% whole wheat loaf will be smaller and
shorter than a 1.0lb regular white loaf as whole wheat
flour does not rise as well as bread flour.

10. Start the Bread Maker
The bread maker is now ready to activate, automatically calculating
the recommended temperatures and times for the ‘preheat’, ‘knead’,
‘rise’, ‘punch-down’, ‘bake’ and ‘keep warm’ phases based on your
selected setting, crust color and loaf size. The LCD screen will
indicate the recommended total cycle time.
a) To modify the recommended temperatures and times for the
‘preheat’, ‘knead’, ‘rise’, ‘punch-down’, ‘bake’ and ‘keep warm’
phases, refer to ‘Using the MODIFY button’, page 34.
b) To activate the cycle using the recommended temperatures
and times for the ‘preheat’, ‘knead’, ‘rise’, ‘punch-down’, ‘bake’
and ‘keep warm’ phases, press the START | PAUSE button.
The button surround will illuminate red. As the cycle begins,
the LCD screen will indicate the time remaining until the
loaf is ready and the progress indicator will flash to indicate
the current phase of the cycle.
When using the bread maker for the first time you may
notice the machine emit vapors. These are the protective
substances on the heating elements. These are safe, not
detrimental to the performance of the bread maker and
will dissipate with use.
c) To pause the cycle, press and hold the START | PAUSE
button. Refer to ‘Using the PAUSE feature’, page 31.
d) To cancel the cycle, press and hold the CANCEL button.
The LCD screen will return to the main menu.
