Open Question

Red star ers 100. I use it only for mixing dough but during the first rise phase the pan is nearly too HOT to touch. Can you tell me why and is there a way to fix it? I think it's killing my yeast.

Mixing OK but not heating/baking


That's not a good sign. This will keep your bread from rising properly and baking, obviously.
If you are still under warranty, contact your manufacturer, otherwise, you can still use the machine to mix but you will need to use your oven to finish your bread.
If your bread is not rising in the machine:
  • Remove mxing chamber from machine
  • If the chamber is not removable, UN-PLUG THE BREAD MACHINE so the blades DO NOT TURN.
  • Be careful of the mixing blade in the chamber
  • Remove dough gently with slightly oiled hands into a lightly oiled bowl with room for about 2x the volume of the dough
  • Cover with plastic wrap to prevent the dough from drying
  • Place the bowl of dough in an unheated oven and leave the oven OFF
  • Place an empty lasagna pan in the cold oven on a shelf below the dough or on the floor of the oven if there are no exposed elements
  • Boil some water and pour it carefully into the lasagna pan
  • Close the oven door - You have just made a proofing box. The steam and heat from the boiled water is sufficient to make a great proofing cabinet out of your oven hot box
  • Allow the dough to rise to about twice the original volume
  • remove the dough from the oven and remove the pan of water
  • continue with the baking instructions below
If your bread is rising in the machine or you have finished the above instructions:
  • Remove dough gently with slightly oiled hands into bread pans. Breadmakers are different sizes so you may need to use one or two pans. Or make an artisan style loaf on a cookie sheet lined with parchment.
  • Be careful not to compress your risen dough as this will make the loaves dense
  • You may also choose to make buns by separating the dough into smaller balls and placing on parchment lined cookie sheets
  • You can allow the dough to rise again for a short time in the proofing box above but I would just leave them on the counter under clean towels to prevent drying for say another 20 minutes. Over-rising bread should also be prevented. The result will be 'deflated' looking bread.
  • Preheat your oven to 375F and bake the bread until it is golden and makes a hollow sound when thumped on the top or the bottom crust
Personally, I love that a machine will mix and knead my dough for me while i go do something else but I don't like the appearance of a machine baked bread. I like the artisan hand-made look. I recommend you keep the breadmaker until you find one you like that is drastically reduced in price and just use the artisan proofing & baking options above.
If you have a Pizza Stone, you can also try that for baking an artisan bread. Use the breadmaker as the workhorse, use your oven as an artist.
Good Luck and may the Yeast be Lively!

When I use the dough cycle on my bread maker, the dough doesn't seem to rise enough and is sticky and wet.


Looks like you have the same bread man machine I have. My metod is too unplug the machine for a half hour then put it through a second round of mixing. At the end of secound mixing I place the dough in a bowl greased and large enough for the dough to rise one last time oil top of dough cover with a towel on top of stove turned on set to the desired temperature. Keep dough away from any drafts. Once dough has doubled in size usually about one hour, take dough from bowl and divide it into buns or loafs of bread. Let dough rise again covered. Place in oven bake for about 15 minutes or longer until desired color, bread is done when you tap the top of it and it has a hollow sound, remove from oven let cool in pan for about 5 minutes, then take bread out of pan and place on a rack that allowes air to flow all around it. The reason for the rack is that baked bread that is allowd to cool on a fly surface will cause the bread to sweat on the bottom. Make sure yeast is good not expired or left out in the open

Bread Maker Red Star ERS 100: warm cycle is like to hot to touch, killing my yeast.


Sounds to me like it's in a "quick bread' mode. While a normal mode takes 3-4 hours, quick bread takes less than 2 because the bake heater is on during the knead cycle. In the quick bread mode, you prepare the ingredients in a bowl BEFORE you put it into the machine. This cycle is designed for bread recipes without yeast. Make certain you are using the basic bread cycle.

If you are, it sounds like the internal circuitry is failing.

DO NOT use a dimmer as the machine is an inductive load (it has a motor and electronic components) and you are just begging for a fire. Not worth it. You can get a new one at Wally World for under $60.

I was given a regal bread maker model k6751 is the kneading blade supposed to turn the whole time?


No, the blade only turns when the machine is in a mix or knead cycle. There are many minutes where the blade does nothing. This is when your machine is allowing the dough to rise or at the end during the bake phase.

I recently purchased a 2lb bread maker. But cannot find the manual or recipe book so I can use it. I brought it from QVC. Can you tell me where I can get this information. I would love to start using...


If you want to use the bread machine immediatly, boxed bread mixes from grocery stores will have generic instructions on the back of the box that can be used universally by most bread making machines. However, if you are wanting the manual and recipies to the particular machine, sometimes the place you purchased it from will allow you to photocopy one from a new one on the shelf. You would need your receipt to prove the purchase. Google Search is also an excellent way to download copies. The contact information on the box will too. In the meanwhile, if you want to make perfect bread follow this recipe BUT>>>do not use the machine for this recipe, use a large bowl to raise the dough.
4 large bread loaf pans, lightly greased with 1 teaspoon vegetable oil each. Set aside

4-6 cups+ flour
1/3 cup evaporated milk
3 2/3 cups water
1/4 cup active dry yeast
1/4 cup salad oil
1/8 cup table salt
1/6 cup sugar

Put the water and evaporated milk in a glass bowl and microwave to 120*~about 2 minutes. It should feel very warm to the touch but not as hot as a cup of hot coffee.
while microwaving, take a second very large bowl (big enough to hold a family size bag of chips)
put the salad oil, sugar, salt and yeast in and stir till mixed.
Add the very warm but NOT extremely hot milk water to the dry mixture. Use a swizzer to mix. Start adding the flour till very thick. Take swizzer out and add more flour gradually until it can't absorb more and is no longer sticking to the sides of the bowl. Shake more flour on a clean counter top and work the dough 3 minutes until smooth and not sticking to the counter. Place dough in another very large bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, place in a warm area such as the vent area of a 225* oven to rise. Punch down after double in size (about 30 minutes). Divide into 4 equal portions. Shape and place in pans. Rise 15 more minutes. Heat oven to 375* bake till golden brown on top and a finger tapping sounds hollow.
Wrap in plastic wrap when cooled slightly to keep moist. Refrigerate loaves to keep longer.

This recipe can be used for cinnamon rolls, clover leaf buns, pizza bread sticks or all 4 if you divide it up! Enjoy....I'm also a competition baker!

I need a recipe for White Bread


Hi greatdane,

Plz find below the recipe for White Bread:

Ingredients:
  • 6 to 7 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 2 packages quick acting or active dry yeast
  • 2 1/4 cups scalded milk cooled to about 120°
Preparation: Mix 3 1/2 cups of flour with sugar, salt, shortening and yeast in a large mixing bowl. Add very warm milk; beat for about 1 minute. Stir in enough of the remaining flour, a cup or so at a time, until dough is easy to handle. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead, adding more flour as necessary to keep it from sticking, until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Place dough in a large buttered mixing bowl. Turn dough over so greased side is up. Cover with a clean dish towel and let rise in a warm place, out of drafts, for about 1 hour, or until doubled. When dough is touched, an indentation will remain. Punch dough down and divide into two equal portions. Flatten each half with hands or rolling pins into a rectangle about 18x10 inches. Starting at 10-inch edge, roll dough tightly; pinch long seam together. With sides of hands, press each end of loaf; fold ends under loaf. Place loaves, seam side down, in loaf pans (approximately 9 x 5 x 3-inch). Brush each loaf lightly with butter. Cover loosely with clean dish towels and let rise until double, about 35 to 50 minutes. Preheat oven to 425°. Bake loaves on a low rack, so tops of pans are at the center of the oven. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Bread will sound hollow when lightly tapped. Makes 2 loaves of white bread.

Hi, It could be that the paddle is sticking or the belt is slipping. This would cause the ingredients not to be mixed properly. Take the empty pan and paddle out of the machine and see if you can spin it freely by hand. It shouldn't stick. If it does stick then the sealed bearing is frozen and a new bread pan is needed. If everytrhing is fine, then check the belts. Belts and motor are located in base of the machine. Unplug machine before working on the belts. Hank

I had the same problem. I find the loaves to be a much better size if I just use program setting 8 - Dough then put the dough in 2 regular bread pans or on cookie sheets (bagetts), let them have a second rising and finish them in the convection oven at 350 F for 21 minutes.

Bread pan does not release loaf after baking.


The Teflon coating on the inside of the pan has worn. You will need a new pan and probably also a paddle. In the meantime you could try spraying the inside of the pan with cooking oil prior to each use.
