13. Unplug the Bread Maker
a) While the bread is cooling, unplug the power cord from the
power outlet.
If you wish to make another loaf of bread, allow
approximately one hour cooling time before using again.
Open the lid to help cool the interior baking chamber. If
the bread maker is too hot an error code will appear on
the LCD screen. The bread maker will not operate until
it cools down to the correct operating temperature for
kneading. Refer to ‘Troubleshooting’, page 59.
b) With protective hot pads or insulted oven mitts, remove
the paddle from the drive shaft inside the bread pan. Do
not attempt to remove the paddle with your bare hand as it
is very hot. If the paddle is difficult to remove, pour some
warm water and a little detergent into the bread pan and
allow to stand for 10-20 minutes to loosen baked-on crust or
crumb residue.
Never immerse the outside of the bread pan in water as
this may interfere with the free movement of the wing-
nut and drive shaft. Submerge and wash only the interior
of the bread pan.
c) Refer to ‘Care and Cleaning’, page 49
14. Slice the Bread
a) When the bread has cooled sufficiently, place the bread onto
a firmly seated breadboard.
Bread slices best when allowed to cool for a minimum of
20 minutes (preferably longer). This allows the steam to
escape. The exception is yeast free breads. Refer to Step
12b, page 27. If you wish to serve bread warm, wrap it in
foil and re-heat in the oven.
b) Ensure the paddle is not in the bottom of the baked bread
loaf and slice using a serrated bread knife or electric knife. A
standard flat-bladed kitchen knife is likely to tear the bread. For
rectangular slices, place the loaf on its side and slice across.
15. Store the Bread
Store unused bread tightly covered at room temperature for
up to 3 days. Sealable plastic bags, plastic containers or a
sealable bread box work well. Since homemade bread has no
preservatives, it tends to dry out and become stale faster than
commercially-made bread. For longer storage, place bread in a
sealable plastic bag, removing any air before sealing, then place
in the freezer. Bread may be frozen for up to 1 month.
Leftover or slightly hardened bread can be used to make
croutons, bread crumbs, bread cups, croustades, melba
toast, crostini, bread pudding or stuffings.
