I have had a brand new bread machine sitting in the box for I don't know how long! I finally got it down today and made a loaf of bread, but the paddle stuck inside the bottom of the loaf. Is there a way to prevent this from happening? The book that came with the machine says it may stick to the bottom of the loaf (but doesn't say anything about it being inside the loaf).

I'm definitely going to have to check out the yummy recipes posted in this forum. I've made bread from scratch before, but hate all the effort that goes into it. LOL! I think my bread machine is going to be a well-loved new friend.

Did you put your dry ingredients in first? Liquids last? I know if you mix up the order..that can happen...or maybe there was some material stuck under the paddle?

Try it again...the worse that can happen is that you have to cut off the end and dig the paddle out...but you get to eat that big piece...lol

Peace

kahana ~~~ I have a two pound black & decker bread machine for about eight years. Does not pay to buy a machine that is too cheap since the motors are not as strong for whole wheat mixing. Mine always sticks inside the loaf too. No problem if i go around it with a plastic blade do not want to scratch the finish. I usually can get it out easy if it is still warm..otherwise can do it at any time. The only thing you do have a hole in the bottom but love that crispy end piece.

I get my yeast from Sams club too very cheap in the one pound bags. Beats paying the high price of packets. Use King Arthurs bread flour & whole wheat flour. It is a pleasure to have the machine knead & rise the bread even if you want to bake it in the oven later.

I put the liquids in first and the dry ingredients last, in the exact order the recipe specified. No big deal if I have to dig it out every time, I just didn't know if that happened to everyone or just me. ROFL!

I have a White Westinghouse machine. My paddle always gets stuck in my bread, and I just take it out and keep going. As for order of ingredients, I put in liquids first, dry, then did a hole in the middle and put the yeast in there. That way the yeast does not get activated to early.

I have a question for all of you. I have a bread machine that makes 1lb & 1 1/2 lb loaves of bread. Everytime I try to make the larger bread it over rises. How do you go about adjusting your recipes?

Hitachi Bread Machine

I purchased a brand new Hitachi bread machine at a neighborhood flea market for $5.00 a couple of years ago with instructions. Goodwill always has them at that price too but without instructions.
I should say I have three of them right now. The last one was digital so took some time to figure out. Every brand has different features making jams and cakes also.
They say if you use sewing machine oil on the gears at the bottom it will make the machine work longer with less wear and tear.

Keeping the paddles clean helps it from sticking also greasing it a little. Giving the gear at the bottom a little turn helps loosen the paddle. Some people take the paddles out just before the bake mode. Keeping the inside of the machine clean after baking. Never immerse in water might damage the seal at the bottom.
My elderly Mom learned how to use it late in life. Had the welbilt model that made small loaves that She loved. When ever she had friends over for card games She would bake her favorite loaf to share with coffee.

Making pizza and rolls is fast and easy with the bread machine. With powdered milk you can make bread the night before to be ready for breakfast.
