Question about Toastmaster TBR15 Bread Maker

1 Answer

Smoking when baking bread today

This bread maker has hardly been used. I baked a loaf of bread today and came into my kitchen with it smoking. The baking cycle had hardly started. The bread maker was clean and had no debris inside or stuff on element. I don't want to come home to a house fire from the bread machine. Is there a "fix" or should I consider disposing of the machine? The machine has hardly been used.

    Mine too...I've only had mine for about 2 years and I rarely use it. But when I started using it, it smokes when baking. I'd love to know how to fix it.

Are there more recipes for my Crofton bread maker. I'm afraid that I haven't had a lot of good success with it recently. I have used Wrights complete bread mixes, they always dip in the middle

Hello, Julz -

Instead of looking for more recipes for your Crofton bread maker, or any other bread maker, I looked for information as to why the bread made with a bread maker would collapse on top.

The answers I found on this online baking formum:
may prove instructive.

To summarize, some of the causes and remedies for bread maker bread collapsing on top:
- You may reside at a high altitude and have not adjusted the recipe so that it does not over-proof [over-rise]. Cut down on the yeast, sugar, and salt.
- Even if you are not at a high altitude, try a recipe with reduced amounts of yeast, sugar, and salt (try reducing the amounts by 1/4 to 1/3)
- Use the dough mix cycle; Then turn the machine off and let the dough rise a little less than the recipe calls for; When you see the dough has risen turn the machine on to bake.
- If your bread maker allows,.reduce the amount of time between rise and bake

If you want additional bread maker recipes, you will find more here:

I did find a PDF document (Adobe Reader software - free) for a model of a Crofton Breadmaker, model MD 8505. In case you do not have a manual for your machine. The manual I found has information on how to make adjustments for altitude (page 22) and other adjustments to make (pages 23 - 24), including what may cause the loaf to fall while baking. This is the link to the manual:

Best wishes.

Kneading paddle bakes into the bread

Kneading paddle on EVERY breadmaker usually bakes into bread. Let the loaf cool and then gently remove it. Or use the dough setting and cook bread in the oven. (i do this) delicious!

How can I keep a baked loaf of bread from sticking to the pan ina west bend bread maker?

Let pan and loaf cool for about 10-15 mins then try to slide it out then. Also you can very gently ease a plastic knife around the top of the bread, to see if this helps.

Bread machine code H:E

That is a feature on your bread machine that prevents you from starting a loaf of bread when the oven is too hot fro the last loaf. You need to open the lid, leave it open for 30 minutes then bake your next loaf.

Every time I bake a wholemeal loaf, it bakes well enough, but it tapers off to one end. This problem does not seem to occur with white bread, which rises evenly throughout the length of the loaf.

Fast Action Easy Bake yeast is supposed to help with improving the volume of a loaf, but you can add 1/4 tsp of Vitamin C powder (ascorbic acid) to whole wheat loafs to improve the rise. Sometimes mixing the flours helps as a small amount of white (30%) can make the loaf less dense. Make sure you use the best quality flour you can afford - the cheap ones don't always make such a good loaf.

Baked Loaf

Yes it does. This is just a minor problem. All bread machines have this happen. The only way around is to use the machine on the dough cycle and bake it in the oven.
