Question about Oster 5838 ExpressBake Bread Maker

1 Answer

Bread comes out sunken in center

The dough appears to mix, knead and rise on cue but as soon as it hits the bake cycle (last hour), the center sinks in the center and then the final product is hard outside with a sunken in center, but the inside is fine.

Have tried Light and Medium crust settings
Have tried less/more bread flour
Have tried less/more yeast
Have tried less/more water

Tested the yeast, it is good
Tried variations of the recipes (following the directions to the "T")

Bread recipe is followed to the detail and have tried 4 loaves and had a seasoned bread maker come over and try as well

Also received an error message tonight that required for me to unplug the machine before it would stop beeping: E:01

Brand new machine, 1 week old

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

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.

Use wooworths elevation breadmaker


A bread machine that works correctly goes through these basic cycles. If your machine did not do this then it is broken and you need to replace it. The cycles are, Mix.....Rise....Mix......Rise....very short Mix of a few seconds....final rise of over 1/2 hour......bake of approximately one hour......I sell good used machines that will come with a full money back 30 dayguarantee (shipping, everything) You can reach me at daryl441@msn.com or my website breadmachineshelp.com

In west bend do you have to use the dough cycle first


Dough cycle is for just mixing and kneading the dough. Like if you want to make pizza or buns. It will only mix the ingredients, cycle for a while to knead, then it's finished. It won't bake form there. Any other cycle will make the bread.

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.

Bread machine model TR520, mixes the dough, stops for a long time, then starts mixing the dough again continuously without starting the bake cycle. This was on the french program. The machine is new...


By continuously do you mean forever, non-stop kneading? I'm guessing not. French bread is really nothing more than white bread dough kneaded for an extra long time. The extra kneading creates the chewyness common to French breads.

Hope this helps!

WE only have a Silvercrest Breadmaker a few months now and the bread sticks to the Kneading Blades and as a result the bread becomes broken when taking it out of the tin, can you please help.


This is very easily fixed. In fact in the instruction manual it suggests you stop it before baking and remove the blades. After almost a year using it, we have further refined this. As soon as 2nd kneading is done, we pause it, remove the blades, oil up hands with olive oil, and shape it into an approximately cuboid shape, before putting it back in the tin and resuming the programme.

From the 2nd time we used it we did the removing the paddles, but with trial and error have found that shaping the bread means you get a much more even loaf, and later that oiling the hands to do this makes it rise much better, as it prevents the dough sticking to the sides, inhibiting the rise.

By the way, the programmes we use most are no. 8 (mostly), in which case you remove the paddles after 70 mins, and no. 2 (occasionally), where you do it after just after an hour.

Hope this helps, it's certainly made it work much better for us!

I have the 5890 Sunbeam breadmaker, I love it except for the kneading blade bakes right in the bread, how can you give a loaf away with that in it?


Hi,
You can take the paddle out of the bread pan after the last kneading cycle and before final rise. Do this rather quickly if you don't have a pause feature so you don't lose any rising time.

Take the bread pan out of the machine, put dough in a bowl, remove paddle, put dough back in pan, put pan back in machine.

Some people suggested to spray a small squirt of olive oil on the shaft to prevent sticking.

Watch/listen to the machine your machine. After the last knead cycle, remove the paddle from the bake pan before the dough rises, continue to bake as normal.
