Where can I find the 'production cycle' that includes minutes for beating mixture to letting rise, baking, etc

All questions need 'make model (what is is)' as first 3 words. This sounds like a bread maker? I bake bread every 2 weeks, but using traditional methods. Mix ingredients to shaggy dough, leave to Autolyse for 30 minutes. Knead for 10 minutes. Prove 1 hour. Knead 10 minutes. Form and Prove for 1 hour. Bake 35 minutes.

Keep Your Fridge Clean for Maximum Freshness

A clean refrigerator helps keep your food fresher for longer. Here are some tips to keep your fridge in top shape:
  • Clean out leftovers once a week - old food can get moldy and contaminate other items. Designate a day each week to check for leftovers or expired items that need tossing.
  • Wipe up spills immediately - quick clean-up keeps messes from getting out of hand. Keep a rag handy to wipe up any drips or leaks.
  • Wash shelves every 1-2 months - take everything out and wash the interior. This prevents buildup of bacteria that could transfer to food. Use a baking soda solution for extra disinfecting power.
  • Check door seals annually - faulty seals allow cold air to escape, meaning your fridge works harder. Make sure seals are intact with no cracks or gaps.
  • Replace air filters as needed - clean filters maximize efficiency. Most fridges have easily removable mesh screens that can be rinsed or vacuumed when visibly dusty.
Following these fridge cleaning tips helps ensure optimum temperature regulation and food storage. A few minutes of regular maintenance goes a long way towards refrigerator freshness! Implement one new tip each week until you've got an appliance that keeps food colder for even longer.

Black & Decker B2200 2lb Breadmaker. The Shaft falls out - nylon washer?

Question edited for clarity, add maker. Most parts are discontinued and I can't find a parts diagram. This article is the most helpful one. It sounds like you need a new paddle so it fits the shaft better, or you have too many nylon washers and the shaft isn't sitting deep enough in the paddle. All my bread is made by hand, no machines and hand kneaded. The dough proves in the oven with just the light on. Breadmaking is fun.

I have a 1960 Duracrest waffle iron with removable plates. will heating the plates upside down in the oven on low heat or placing them back onto the unit on high to melt the oil build up?

Yes, you can heat the plates in the oven to melt any buildup. Make sure that the temperature remains low throughout the process, and that you keep an eye on the plates in case they become too hot. I suggest setting your oven temperature to around 300°F and leaving them for no more than 10 minutes at a time. In addition, you can brush a thin layer of oil onto the plates every one or two uses.

Everything seems to be working on my Vitaclay but an hour later, rice is not cooked at all. I did press the start button. What's wrong?

It is possible that the Vitaclay is not heating properly and is unable to reach the required temperature to cook the rice. To fix this issue, check if there is any visible damage to the unit such as cracks, warps, or any other damage. If any damage is visible, the heating element may need to be replaced. If there is no visible damage, check the internal electrical connections and replace any bad components in order to restore heating ability. If these steps do not help, contact customer support for further assistance.

My Swan Teasmade's light will not go on, so the kettle won't boil. I've tried moving the water pot around inside the holder, but nothing works.

If the light on your Swan Teasmade is not turning on and the kettle isn't boiling, there could be several reasons for this issue. Here are some troubleshooting steps you can try to identify and potentially fix the problem:
  1. Check the Power Source:
    • Ensure that the Teasmade is properly plugged into a working power outlet. Try using a different outlet to rule out power supply issues.
  2. Inspect the Power Cord:
    • Examine the power cord for any visible damage or fraying. If you find any issues, it's important to replace the cord with a new one.
  3. Check the Fuse:
    • Teasmades usually have a fuse inside. Check if the fuse has blown. If it has, replace it with a fuse of the same rating.
  4. Water Level Sensor:
    • There might be an issue with the water level sensor. If the Teasmade doesn't detect water, it might not turn on. Clean the sensor area and ensure there are no blockages.
  5. Heating Element:
    • The heating element might be faulty. If the Teasmade is under warranty, contact the manufacturer for repairs or replacement. If not, you might need to take it to a professional repair service.
  6. Thermostat Issues:
    • The thermostat that controls the boiling temperature might be malfunctioning. This would require professional repair or replacement.
  7. Manufacturer Support:
    • If your Teasmade is still under warranty, it's best to contact the manufacturer's customer support for guidance and possible repairs. They might have specific troubleshooting steps tailored to your device.

How do I adjust the roller width of my pasta maker as it seems to be 'locked' @ #6

If the roller width of your pasta maker seems to be locked at a specific setting, like #6, and you're unable to adjust it, here are some steps you can try to troubleshoot and potentially fix the issue:
  1. Inspect for Obstructions: Check for any debris, pasta dough residue, or foreign objects that might be blocking the mechanism responsible for adjusting the roller width. Clean the machine thoroughly and remove any obstacles that could be causing the locking.
  2. Lubrication: Sometimes, the adjustment mechanism can become stiff due to lack of lubrication. Apply a small amount of food-grade lubricant or vegetable oil to the moving parts and joints, and work the adjustment knob back and forth to help loosen it up.
  3. Gently Apply Pressure: While the machine is off and unplugged, try gently applying pressure to the adjustment knob while attempting to turn it. This might help release any stuck parts or overcome resistance.
  4. Wiggle and Jiggle: Gently wiggle and jiggle the adjustment knob while attempting to turn it. Sometimes, this slight movement can dislodge any stuck components and allow for proper adjustment.
  5. Use a Tool: If the knob is particularly stubborn, you can use a pair of pliers or a wrench (wrapped in a cloth to prevent scratching) to help turn the knob while applying gentle pressure. Be cautious not to apply too much force to avoid damaging the machine.
  6. Consult the Manual: If you still have the manual that came with the pasta maker, refer to it for troubleshooting tips specific to your model. There might be manufacturer-recommended solutions for this issue.
  7. Contact Customer Support: If none of the above steps work, it might be best to contact the manufacturer's customer support or service center for assistance. They can provide you with more detailed guidance or arrange for repairs if necessary.
Remember, always exercise caution when working with kitchen appliances, and avoid using excessive force that could potentially damage the machine further. If you're not comfortable attempting these steps yourself, it's better to seek professional assistance to avoid causing further damage to your pasta maker.

If a package of rice costs R$5.50 and is increased by 20%, what will be the new price of the package of rice?

This is simple maths. Divide 5.50 by 100. Multiply the answer by 20. Add that answer to 5.50. 5.50 / 100 = 0.055 0.055 x 20 = 1.10 5.50 + 1.10 = 6.60
