SOURCE: 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.

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.

My bread always comes out looking to dark


Your oven is probably getting hotter than the thermostat you set it for reads. The outside of the bread is probably getting done too quickly and by the time the center is, the crust is dried out. Try a lower setting and see if it works. And you may have to adjust the timing. Sounds like your oven needs a new element maybe.

My panasonic SD 255 breadmaker, after quite a lot of use, is now baking bread with a harder crust than it did in its youth. We can get a softer crust by using the Sandwich loaf setting but then we can...


You never said if you remembered to select the LIGHT Crust setting each time. Did you? Are you? If you ARE using the LIGHT Crust setting and finished loaves are still too dark, I would have to say it's time for a replacement breadmaker. Nothing lasts forever my friend. Besides, it sounds like you got your money's worth anyway, right?

I've owned over 200 breadmaker myself so you can bet that what I'm saying is true. Sorry for the bad news friend.

Hope this helps!

WB 41055 is stuck in med crust color?


Hi, You have 2 choices to solve your problem. You can choose to repair or replace. The switch on the control panel is likely broken so you can attempt to repair it by taking it apart and replacing the crust selector switch or replacing the entire control panel. Control panel for various breadmakers can sometimes be found on ebay but they will be at least $20 once shipping is included. I am sorry to tell you the best choice is to replace your entire machine or just accept bread with a medium crust. Better to be stuck on medium that DARK. You can find new/almost new machines on ebay for abut $30-$40.

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!

Need the operting Manual for PerfectBaker PB571


Here's some info;
http://www.creativehomemaking.com/download/TR888_1183_Recipe_Book.pdf


Here is some operating instructions one baker used for this machine;

But here's how to actually use it:

Put wet ingredients in loaf pan. Heap dry ingredients on top. Make a well in dry ingredients and add yeast, ensuring it doesn't touch liquid if you want to use the timer. Put pan in breadmaker, clicking into place.

Plug in breadmaker but DO NOT touch the on/off button till the very last.

Using the "menu" button, choose what type of bread you're making (the top two rows -- normal, fruity etc).
Using the "crust control" select how dark you want your crust.
Using the "timer" select how long till you get the finished product. The minimum is 3 hours for quick bread/medium crust, which I often use, the maximum 14 hrs 30mins. It goes up in 30 minute increments with each push of the up arrow. Remember, what the timer shows is when the finished bread will be ready.

Once you're satisfied with your settings, press on/off

If you choose "fruity bread" the timer will beep into the kneading process to tell you it's time to add the fruit. It goes in at a later stage.

When the bread is finished, it will keep on a warm cycle for a while until you switch it off.

I use high grade flour and add 1 tsp gluten flour to each cup of flour. The bread rises more.

1st time w/ Cuisinart bread maker


There's a little arrow in the LCD screen that changes from 1, 1.5, and 2 lbs when you press loaf. There is also one for light, medium, and dark crust. Each time you press either button, the arrow will change which setting it's pointing to.

If you're using it in an area with low lighting, try using a flashlight (I have to do that on mine).
