Routine Maintenance

Ensure the bread maker is turned OFF by pressing and holding the CANCEL button. The bread maker is OFF when the START | PAUSE button surround is no longer red. Remove the power plug from the power outlet. Allow the bread maker and all accessories to cool completely before disassembling and cleaning.

1.Wipe the exterior of the stainless steel housing and the LCD screen with a soft, damp cloth. A non-abrasive liquid cleanser or mild spray solution may be used to avoid build-up of stains. Apply the cleanser to the sponge, not the outer surface or LCD screen, before cleaning. Do not use a dry paper towel or cloth to clean the LCD screen, or use an abrasive cleanser or metal scouring pad to clean any part of the bread maker as these will scratch the surface.
2.If over-spills such as flour, nuts, raisins etc. occur in the interior baking chamber, carefully remove them using a soft, damp cloth. Use extreme caution when cleaning the heating elements. Ensure the bread maker is completely cool then gently rub
a soft, damp sponge or cloth along the length of the heating element. Do not use any type of cleanser or cleaning agent.
3.For thorough cleaning, the lid can be removed from the stainless steel housing. Lift open the lid completely. Holding the sides of the lid, lift straight upwards. The lid should detach from the hinge. To replace the lid, align the pivot pins on the lid with the pivot points on the hinge.

Wipe the lid, viewing window and Automatic Fruit and Nut Dispenser with a soft, damp sponge. A glass cleaner or mild detergent may be used. Do not use an abrasive cleanser or metal scouring pad as these will scratch the surface.
4.Wash the collapsible paddle and fixed paddle with warm soapy water and a soft cloth.
5.Ensure there is no baked-on residue in any of the paddle crevices, including the ‘D’ shaped hole and hinge area. If there is, soak the paddle in warm soapy water. A non- abrasive liquid cleanser or mild spray solution may be used. Allow to stand for 10-20 minutes. Use a wooden toothpick, thin wooden skewer or plastic cleaning brush to remove any bread residue from the crevices and hinge area. Failure to clean the hinge area may eventually result in the collapsible paddle not working effectively. Rinse thoroughly.
6.Half fill the bread pan with warm soapy water. A non- abrasive liquid cleanser or mild spray solution may be used. Allow to stand for 10-20 minutes.
7.Remove the paddle and wash the inside of the bread pan with a soft cloth. Do not use an abrasive cleanser or metal scouring pad as these will scratch the non-stick coating. Ensure there is no baked-on residue or dough on the drive shaft. Rinse thoroughly.
8.Let all surfaces dry thoroughly prior to inserting the power plug into a power outlet.
Some discoloration may appear on and inside the bread pan over time. This is a natural effect caused by moisture and steam and will not affect the bread in any way.
The inside of the bread pan is coated with a high quality non-stick coating. As with any non-stick coated surface, do not use abrasive cleansers, metal scouring pads or metal utensils to clean these items as they may damage the finish.
