Care and Cleaning

Disconnect power before cleaning. Do not immerse cord, plug, or housing in any liquid. Allow breadmaker to cool down completely before cleaning.

  1. To clean kneading paddle: If the kneading paddle is difficult to remove from bread pan, add water to bottom of bread pan and allow to soak for up to 1 hour. Wipe paddle carefully with a damp cloth. The kneading paddle is dishwasher-safe.
  2. To clean bread pan: Using handle, lift pan from baking chamber. Wipe inside and outside of bread pan with a damp cloth. Do not use any abrasive agents, in order to protect nonstick coating. Bread pan must be dried completely before installation. NOTE: Bread pan, kneading paddle, measuring cup, spoon, and paddle hook are dishwasher-safe. The outside of bread pan and base may discolor. This is normal.
  3. To clean housing and top lid: After use, unplug and allow unit to cool. Use a damp cloth to wipe lid, housing, baking chamber, and interior of viewing window. Do not use any abrasive cleaners for cleaning, since this will degrade the high polish of the surface. Never immerse the housing into water for cleaning.
  4. Before breadmaker is packed for storage, ensure that it has completely cooled down, is clean and dry, and top lid is closed.
