The kneading shovel can be removed before the dough is baked. This method leaves only a small hole at the bottom of the bread made by the drive shaft.

Wait until the blade can be heard at the beginning of the third lifting phase. Press and hold the Start/Pause button. That suspends the cycle of Ascension 3.

Can it make gluten-free bread?

Yes, it has a gluten-free setting of for making gluten-free bread. This device has a shorter kneading and rising phase, but is cooked at higher temperatures. Gluten-free dough from rice, potatoes or tapioca is wetter and less smooth than wheat flour. The production of strong bread requires less kneading and more heat.

Does it contain yeast-free sludges?

Yes, it has an setting of Yeast-free for bread recipes that use yeast or baking soda instead of yeast. With settling without yeast, there are no lifting cycles. The baking powder or baking powder is activated during the baking phase by the liquid and the heat, so no rising phase is required. The yeast-free holes mix and knead the ingredients and then go directly to baking the bread. The Corn Colour and Bread Size options are disabled for the Yeast Free setting.

Does it have a yeast donor?

No, it’s not. It has a fruit and nut dispenser, but cannot be used for yeast. If you want a bread baking machine with yeast dispenser, you should look for the Panasonic SD-YD250 bread baking machine. This Panasonic bakery is the only one we know with a yeast vending machine.

What size bread can I bake?

It can produce sticks of the following sizes: 1, 1.5, 2 and 2.5 pounds. The actual weight of the finished bread may be slightly lower or slightly higher than these figures because of the type of flour used or the quantity of added fruit and nuts.

Does it have a pause function?

Yes, it has a pause function that is controlled by the pause button on the control panel. The pause function can be used to interrupt any phase of the bread making process, with the exception of the heat retention phase. This allows you to shape the dough manually before the baking cycle or after the warning signal for adding fruit and nuts.

How to remove

The bread pan is the part that needs cleaning the most. Take the bread pan out of the machine and wipe it with a soft sponge and soapy water. Do not use abrasive materials because the bread has a non-stick coating. Do not immerse the bread pan in water, but only add soapy water. You can also clean the knife with rinsing soap and water. The rest of the bakery can be wiped with a damp cloth.
