Cleaning Your Bread Maker
Love the smell of freshly baked bread? With a bread maker, you can wake up every morning to this fragrance - and you won’t have to go to the bakery anymore. When you make your own bread, you know it's healthy and fresh—but you’ll need to remember to thoroughly clean your bread maker from time to time.
Warm and fragrant freshly baked bread: it's just waiting to be sliced by you. But don’t forget, this is the perfect opportunity to quickly clean your bread making machine. Only a few minutes are enough, and you’ll save yourself a more elaborate cleaning later. Remember to clean both the baking tin and dough blade. For the actual bread maker, a wipe with a microfiber cloth is enough.
The good news: your bread maker does not actually need a lot of care. Just keep a few simple things in mind:
• Disconnect your bread maker from electricity before cleaning.
• The baking tin and dough blade do not belong in the dishwasher. Clean these by hand.
• Do not allow food residue to dry for a long time, or it will be harder to clean.
• Avoid use of hard or pointed objects, which can scratch the tin or blade.
• Finding it difficult to remove the residue from the pan? Fill with hot water and a detergent disc and leave to soak for a half hour.
• Make sure to dry the bread maker thoroughly after cleaning before plugging the into the socket.
• If you find your bread is sticking to the baking pan, next time try coating the surface with a little oil.
