Question about Sunbeam 5891 Bread Maker

Hard crust I used the light crust button and the crust is still thick and hard. I haven't used it again until yesterday...same result. It does not make a meal nicer. My old machine never made a bad loaf, but it died.

Do you take it out right away?  If you let it rest in the machine for about an hour the crust stays soft as the bread sucks back in the moisture it gave off during baking.  Doing this does not make the bread soggy.  It's just physics.  If you take the bread out immediately the heat (+moisture) will be drawn out and diffused into the cooler environment.  Hope this helps.

Crust is dark and tought


Do you have a crust color selector button? If yes, be sure to choose "Light" crust. If no, then you can try using milk in place of water. That will result in a softer less dense crust.

Bread sticks to the pan and the dough blade what am I doing wrong


It is not uncommon for the paddle to get stuck in the bread loaf especially with thick crust breads (i.e. french) Be sure to choose light crust and sometime using milk instead of water help too.

I set the menu for whole wheat bread, however, recipe states whole wheat bread rapid. I've tried to unplug (before it has done anything) and reset, but it will not let me. It just goes back to the prior...


push the stop button until your machine beeps, then unplug it and plug it back in. push select and push it again and again and you will get more confident as you see it go through the choices such as basic, whole wheat, french etc...... you will get more confident about how to choose. Once you feel you have the right program leave it there and then choose things such as the crust color you want and the LOAF SIZE once you feel you have the right settings say....whole wheat, light crust, 1.5 pound loaf.......then....push start and the fun will begin....

Breadmaker Model #100.12934 Crust to hard even on Light Crust setting after following the directions exactly. 3 trys and I am now ready to take it back.


If you are using water as your liquid phase in the recipe use milk instead (same amount)and you will have a lighter more delicate crust.

Please try it and then rate this answer , testimonial etc. thanks!

Can only use programmes which allow changing the crust setting to 'dark' other programmes half bake the bread.


This is a tough one. One thing you might try until you can replace your machine is to look in your manual and look at the page that shows the cycles of the program you chose. I wonder if you could shut the machine down after the last rise cycle next time,,,,,the,,,,. Push the Stop button until it beeps.... then unplug your machine and reprogram your breadmaker on the "Bake" program and set the time by pushing the timer advance button in 10 minute increments to the equivalent of the last bake cycle of your original program for light crust bread? That just might work!

The crust of the bread is thick and hard. What is


Are you using water? Water will make a crust crunchier, while substituting milk will give you a squishier crust. Also depends on what kind of bread you're making.

Hard crust


Hello roszejon,

Dark crusts are usually a result of heat being too high, too long, and sometimes also a function of the chemistry of the bread. Since you're setting it on "light", either your breadmaker needs repair/recalibration, or there's something about the recipe. Odds are that the breadmaker needs repair.

If I can be of further assistance, or if you have questions about any of my response(s), please let me know before rating me.

If this solves the issue, please rate it accordingly. My goal is to earn a "FixYa" rating from everyone I help.

Thanks for using Fixya.com,

The bread is too dry


Welcome to FixYa, if you appreciate our solution, please rate our services.

Breadmakers usually don't have as many crust settings as this one does. Darker crust settings usually equate to dryer bread because the bread bakes longer. The longer the bread bakes, the more moisture is removed. Accordingly, if you've tried this many recipes with dry texture, try progressively lighter crust settings until you get the moisture you desire. As for me, I rarely bake my bread in the machine (I don't like the hole in the bottom of the loaf). I do, however, appreciate the dough setting which does all the hard work, and I just bake it in the pan. I think the results are better and I get a better shaped loaf.

If this information has been helpful, don't forget to give me an appropriate rating. Thanks again and good baking!

Hard crusts


I have an OSTER Breadmaker but if I wish a very light crust I simply turn the machine off 10-15 minutes early and leave the lid closed, which keeps the steam in and allows the crust to be softer. Then I have a new cold stick of margarine or butter, unwrapped part way, and slowly pass it over the top and sides of the new bread loaf. Sometimes due to weather changes or altitude we need to adjust our recipies, from those in our manuals. If your kitchen is 10-15 degrees warmer in the summer this can affect your machine. As with the amount of moisture in the air. My Gramma never made bread if it was rainy or a snow storm was brewing. The drop in air pressure made it uncertain if her bread would rise. Don't be afraid to fiddle with your recipe and adjust the amount of flour or kind of flour you use. Also have all ingredients at room temperature, for any recipe. Try various amounts of oil, water, an egg added, even if the recipe doesn't ask for one..! It is your bread and you get to eat it, it should be as you like it. The first adjustment is less time. Pull the plug early. Second would be the margarine. Third is play with the contents and adjust. Feed the birds the NOPES. Last reduce the amount of flour, but only by 3 tbsp at a time. This is the trick-y-est. Keep track on a paper and then re-write YOUR RECIPE on the inside front cover of your bread book.
