Question about Breadman Tr2500bc Ultimate Plus 2-pound Stainless-steel Convection
Every time i try to make bread in this machine, it doesn't mix the ingredients together well, and bakes to about half the size it should be. i'm debating throwing it out and buying a different one.
Ensure you are using the right ingredients, fresh yeast, a little salt and maybe a crushed vitC tablet. Don't use standard fine flour you need a courser flour. help it mix by putting ingredients in evenly, liquids first. melt any butter you use in a microwave before adding. most breads use artificially improved flours. if you grind your own flour it will end up a much heavier loaf.....i like it that way.
If nothing i have said helps then it might be time to give up on your breadmaker

Hello roger...... It is vitally important to be using fresh ingredients since the yeast will deteriorate as time goes on. Go to the store and buy a fresh bread mix to see if that is the problem. If it works as it should great, if not then you have a more serious issue within the workings of the machine itself, most likely the timer. Joe

Yeast: Use active dry yeast for all your standard-rise bread recipes and rapid-rise dry yeast for all your fast-bake bread recipes. Fast-Bake aka Ultra-Bake aka Rapid-Bake aka Express-Bake is an option available on select models. Always refrigerate your yeast with a close eye on the expiration date. When using grocery-bought bread mixes always substitute the yeast packet provided with fresh active dry yeast. Tip: A packet (or "sachet") of active dry yeast contains 2-1/4 teaspoons.
Baking Surface Prep: Spray, not wipe or smear, the inside of your loaf pan generously with cooking oil before adding the ingredients.
Water: Use only drinking or filtered water, never tap, boiled or distilled.
Ingredient Temperatures: All ingredients should be at room temperature before pressing Start. Specifically 70 to 80 degrees F, 21 to 87 degrees C. Add liquids, oils, salts, sugars and seasonings first, next the flour, and last the yeast.
Delayed Start: Flour floats on the surface of the water until the initial kneading phase begins. That is why many breadmakers have a programmable start-delay timer. You can add the ingredients tonight and wake up in the morning to the aroma of fresh-baked bread.
Shelf Life: Refrigeration and/or freezing finished loaves is not recommended. For best results store them in a breadbox. Tip: Adding 1-2 tsps of lemon juice to any bread or dough recipe will double the shelf life of your bread.
Measuring: Water MUST be measured using a clear liquid measuring cup. Dry ingredients MUST be measured using standard measuring cups. All measurements, either spoons or cups, MUST be leveled.
Slicing The Loaf: Electric carving knives work best, especially when using a slicing guide. Be certain to wait until the loaf is cool to the touch before slicing.
