bread machine to oven conversion

September 5, 2014 - 9:28am -- Becky in MN

This past Christmas my sister got me a Cuisinart CBK-100 bread maker and I discovered the yummy fun of making my own bread (and I haven't bought a single loaf in the store since).

During the Summer, the bread machine was perfect for baking - I didn't have to heat up an already warm house with my oven. But now it's Fall and I'd love nothing more than to sit by a toasty oven with the smell of baking bread filling the house.

Curious about why bread machines...

August 17, 2014 - 9:03am -- clearlyanidiot

I was given a used bread machine last year, just the machine, paddle and pan, no manual. It's been hot and I need to rebuild my masonry oven, so I finally got around to looking up the manual for it and trying a recipe or two. While the results aren't as good as what I can do with proper equipment, there was still 80% of the effect, of certain types of bread, for 20% of the work.

Zojirushi PAC 20

August 5, 2014 - 11:19pm -- sharhamm

Arrived yesterday.  First loaf a disaster.  Bad operator and bad yeast and old flour. So today I try again. 

When exchanging part of the white flour with 1 cup of whole wheat flour do I use the basic white cycle or the whole wheat cycle?  Pumpernickel bread..what cycle? 

The recipes do not call for tepid water.  Am I supposed to be using water out of the tap and the rest cycle will preheat everything?

How to convert bread machine recipe?

August 3, 2014 - 5:39am -- BakerNewbie

I'm tempted to try this recipe: However, it calls for a bread machine. I don't have one. Can I convert this into regular recipe? If so, how?

And as an aside: do bread machines produce superior bread? Am I better off buying a bread machine rather than trying to convert this recipe?

Breadman TR555 (TR555LC)

July 23, 2014 - 7:34am -- saacmk1


I am in need of either a parts list or a schematic of an old Breadman TR555 bread machine.  I had small washer/seal/grommet part disintegrate and need to find a replacement.  The part goes around the drive shaft and appeared to sit underneath a hard rubber part on the inside base of the bread pan.  The problem is that it is gone and I have nothing to compare it to.

A call to the manufacturer wasn’t particularly helpful.  It also occurs to me that the same part is in a lot of bread machines from this manufacturer, like a TR555LC, which is still in production.

Is Zojirushi or Breville worth it for dough only?

July 15, 2014 - 8:54am -- aprilchem

Hi All,

This is only my second post on this board, but I'm hoping somebody with bread machine experience can give me some advice.  I have an old Breadman that I've been using for as long as I've been making bread - I don't know exactly how old it is; I bought it at Goodwill about 7 years ago and have used it twice a week since then.  However, it's recently developed some problems after "walking" off my counter twice, and in addition I'm now seeing some rust on the pan.  So, I think it's time to replace it.
