About Kenwood BM450 Breadmaker

Hi folks,

Kenwood Breadmaker BM450

Re programming

I looked at;



Please help me to understand;

1) What is kneader 1, kneader 2, kneader 3 and kneader? To my understanding this model has only one kneader.

2) If I want to using it for baking whether set the kneader time to 0?

3) What is rising time?

4) What is rising time vs baking time?

Any reason you can't just select any of the pre-programmed options listed on page 6 (Basic, White Rapid, Whole Wheat, etc.), and leave that "Favourite" button alone and ignore page 8 for now?

(Maybe after a few months move to the "artisan dough" [#11] option, and after another few months finally move to the "favourite"?-)
