If bread machines are a new appliance to you, and you've just got yourself the best home bread maker, then it's time to learn how to use it. It might look as if it is a complicated process but once you get the gist, you will realize it is easy.
First, understand your bread machine. Some of the things to consider are the settings, cycle types, loaf sizes, and other basic programs.
Once you know what is where on the machine and its purpose, you can now measure the ingredients. Ensure they are at room temperature and accurate for the proper appearance, texture, and taste. Add them in the correct order according to the available instructions. Typically, liquids come first.
Then, you can program the settings which will determine what action you want to take. You might want to express settings, delay timers, among others. After you have your settings in place, you can press the start button. If possible, remove the kneading blade before the baking begins.
Remove the bread once it is baked and take the bread pan for washing. Just use soap and sponge - nothing abrasive.
