Fagor Bread Makers

I had one of these given to me, after I got my oven (yeah!!!!) and thought I would at least try one loaf of bread in it, just to see if it works or not.  It came with a very lame instruction manual, including very basic recipes, but it is so incomplete that it just leaves one in the dark.  The control panel has a Reject read-out and nothing in the manual about it.  Anyone have a clue?  Thanks in advance.  I know now that any outside kitchen help will be in the form of a real, HD stand mixer, with a good dough hook.  PE

Well, I went ahead and did a loaf in the Fagor machine.  And after the fact....it dawned on me....the EJECT light was probably letting me know...that if I was smart...I would at this point, take the dough out of the bread maker, and extract the kneading paddles before they get baked into the loaf.  Nothing at all was mentioned in the manual about this.  Next time I will do this.  I will probably give this machine to a good friend of mine that lives in a faculty dorm at  the local university where I work...because none of the dorms have a kitchen area in them.  I have 2 kitchens...an inside Western kitchen and an outside, Thai kitchen (that is where my oven is due to the excessive heat that we really don't need in the rest of the house, being it is a tropical country).  Bake on....pood
