turn off baking cycle / programming custom cycles
I have a Zojirushi and it kneads and rises well but the baking results are not as good as in my oven. So, I want to use it for kneading and rising. Is the easiest way to do that to use it on the custom setting and specify each step (e.g. Bake: OFF)? I would do that, but I have no idea what the appropriate lengths are for each stage. I have searched this and other forums before posting. Can I just use the dough setting instead?
Does anyone know what length time I should set for Knead and Rise cycles for a basic loaf, or how it changes for whole wheat loaves?
The only example the manual gives is for French bread, which is clearly different than the normal cycle:
Knead: 18 minutes Rise 1: 45 Rise 2: 1:25 Rise 3: OFF
Thanks for your help.
