Firm bottom - saggy top

February 25, 2017 - 1:19pm -- jko

Apologies for the corny title, but it describes the problem I'm having with my Panasonic SD2501 breadmaker.

I'm new to the world of breadmaking, and received the breadmaker as a Christmas gift. I love it and I am generally very happy with what it produces. However, now that I've had a few loaves through it, I'm getting a bit more picky about the results.

White loaves, of any size seem to turn out just about spot-on using the recipe in the instructions.

Need picture of ws bread machine ctrl panel

hi everyone!  I have a william Sonoma (model ws0797) bread machine but it's missing the sticker for the control panel. If someone has the same model can you send me a picture of your control panel so I know what button does what?  The manuals I found online don't have a picture that I could find.

why does my bread not rise properly?

December 7, 2016 - 1:58pm -- karaman


new to forum and bread-making machine.

I do everything it tells me to make a simple white loaf but after three hours 10 minutes, it comes out about three-quarters the height it ought to be.  It is edible but somewhat heavier and more compact than the light and airy production i am expecting.  Have tried it several times carefully measuring the ingredients ----> with the same result.  i am using the recipe from the previous machine which went t*s up ( it saw me coming) as the new machine's stuff is unintelligible for a numtie.

Low Carb Bread in a B&D B600C

November 12, 2016 - 1:48pm -- anon125

we have used the same basic recipe for years with the old B&D B2300. changes in the Vital Wheat gluten and oat flour meant minor changes like more yeast needed.

the new machine made a fine loaf the first time but the second - on 2 machines made lumpy and 'stringy' looking tiny loaves.

Any ideas?
