Blades stuck inside bread

I have a hard time, after shaking the bread out of pan, to remove the paddles that are always stuck inside the bread. I have been using plastic utensils trying to get inside the bread. How does one get the paddles to remain in the pan rather than inside the bread.

Re: Blades stuck inside bread

Unfortunately trying to stick the paddles in the pan just tends to leave half the loaf in the bottom with them. The best method i have found is to cut the crust around the outside of the paddles, carefully avoiding the bit where the actual paddle blade is, then you insert a rod into the centre of the paddle and tilt it towards the blade. They normally come free pretty easily. Another method you can use if you are around the machine when it is making bread, is to remove the paddles at the end of the mixing/kneading cycle, just before the baking cycle starts. Most machines have a small pause allowing you to do this - sometimes with a "beep" or screen message to tell you that you can do this. Sorry i couldn't find the exact info for your model, it will vary for different baking programs also. If you check the cycle to determine at which stage it starts actually baking, then you can do this quite safely so long as you are careful of the machine heating up while you are removing the paddles - usually you would have around 20 minutes at least to remove the paddles before baking. Hope this helps :)

Re: Blades stuck inside bread

Applica Consumer Inquiry When the paddles get stuck in the baked loaf, use a wooden skewer to pull the paddle out. Thread the wooden skewer through the hole of the paddle and you should be able to remove it easily. This is my only criticism of the machine. A wooden skewer does not damage the finish on the paddle. If the skewer had a hook on the end it would work even better when trying to fish the paddle out..

Re: Blades stuck inside bread

I have a much older breadmaker that the paddles are permaglued to pan.(like that when given to me) So I just let the bread sit for about 10 to 15 minutes and the paddles come right out when removed from baker and given a shake to come out of pan.

How do I get the kneeding blade out of the bread machine?

soak the paddle in soapy water overnight with enough water to keep the paddle submerged. The next day wiggle it back and forth while holding the litte ears underneathe the pan. Move it up and down too. If it still doesn't break free go to you tube and type "how to remove a stuck bread machine paddle" have your husband do that move, but don' use more than one jug of water because the TBR15 pan is thin and can bend. Be sure your husband uses hot pads to hold the pan edges so he doesn't hurt his fingers. If that method doesn't work you will have to live with a stuck paddle or order a new pan assembly and paddle and then always remember to remove to soak your paddle after baking and remove it from
the stem, clean, and store. Daryl,,, from

I can't remove the paddle from the pan to clean . Is there a tool to pull the paddle/blade out ? I can't get a good enough hold of it.

If a paddle is left on a machine after baking, and is stored that way then the paddle can be almost impossible to remove if not impossible. If it is not stuck too badly then the method showed on youtube might work. Go to you tube and type in "How to remove a stuck bread machine paddle" But again if it is badly stuck even that method may not work. Let me know if it works or not.

Hi, Take the paddle out of the machine at the end of the last kneading cycle and before final rise.. Use pause or take pan out of machine to remove paddle. OR... spray the shaft with a small amount of olive oil. This should allow paddle to come out when bread is done. You will have to fish the paddle out of the bread in this step. Hank

Removing paddles before bake cycle

Rather than pulling out the paddles , pull out the dough and bake it in regular bread pans in your oven.

Paddles stick to posts & tear big chunks out of bread

Try some hard crisco on the post before putting in the paddle or any ingredients. Your paddle SHOULD COME OUT with your loaf. Then when it has cooled off some, you turn it on it's side and surgically remove the ****** from the bottom center. Try to remember the shape(of the paddle) you need to excise for your loaf. Have you ever noticed that most kitchen machines are designed by men?? As with floors that are horrible to try to clean. The big belief is that all companies have test kitchens.. not so. And we my dear must deal with items that do not function as one would logically think they should. I hope you give the company an earfull of customer feedback. Mine is an OSTER. Five 1/2 years and doing fine even with whole wheat, and desert pastry.

Removing finished bread from pan

Before the baking cycle begins,remove the bread pan ,shake out the batter onto a piece of waxed paper,remove the paddle from the bread pan,place batter back into the pan,close lid.This way you only have a small hole in the finished loaf. I prefer the 1.5 pound rye bread,and set a kitchen timer for 2 hours 5 minutes-when the "shape" cycle finishes,we remove the paddle.
This is listed in my manual on page 76,item # 7;heading is METHOD.
Front of the manual lists the times for the cycles,just add them up.
(When you dump the batter back into the pan,try to pat down the rough edges,it looks better).
