Sunbeam Breadmaker

10 posts in this topic

Hi there,

as I figured, my mother-in-law gave me a breadmachine christmas. I already read the manual and I also read the advices about breadmachines in the glouten gourmet book I got. And I have the strange feeling, I can't make good gluten-free breads with this machine. This sunbeam breadmachine kneads the dough two times and I heard this isn't that good with our dough. It also has expressbake settings, but it doesn't say, if this leaves one kneading process out or not. I read in previous postings, that the expressbake setting could leave one kneading process out. But is this so with every bread machine?

The next thing, that I read in the glutenfree cookbook was, that the paddle(s) should be large and NOT dough-hook-shaped. And it shouldn't be a short thick paddle and if so, the dough should be mixed outside the pan or use a rubber spatula to stir the dough as it is mixing. How large is large? And what is dough-hoo-shaped??? I think mine has a short thick paddle, but it's not possible to mix it outside or stir the dough, while it is mixing. This machine mixes on it's own and while it's mixing you can't open the lid, otherwise you have to start all over again.

I also can't cut out the "stir down" or the second rising. I need help!!!

I read a lot b4 buying one recently and every expressbake-type option i saw was accomplished by skipping 2nd knead/rise.

So far i've made little mistakes 2 of the 3x i made bread, but it all turned out great.

My paddle is small and w/ a 30-40 degree angle in it, and watching it work (lil window) i can't see what could be done better w/ a different paddle.

Also both my mom and sister make good gluten-free bread w/ machines that are years old, and neither has single knead/rise settings. Maybe something w/ Bob's Red Mill gluten-free mix makes perfect optimization unnecessary ? Same mix for all of us.

Your book should have a chart of the times used for each diff program included. The ones i saw showed that the fastbake cycle always skipped 2nd knead/rise. ANd if it doesn't, u can get good bread w/ Bob's "wonderful gluten-free" mix, even w/ 2nd knead/rise.

I often use the rapid setting on my machine with gives two kneading processes but only a short rest between the two. It works great with my favorite bread recipe. I also have used the quick setting with has only one kneading process (but a 5 min longer bake cycle...which is too long for my recipe) so generally I use the rapid setting. I've also unplugged my machine before the baking turns on in order to allow a new recipe to rise longer, then replug it in and set it to just the bake setting (starts baking right away.)

Take a look in the manual. Try a good gluten-free bread (like Bob's which is very forgiving.) If it flops, give a call to you MIL and ask if she would mind if you take it back to the store and replace it with another breadmachine type. I did this with two different brands before I found one I liked (but, like Tom said, you may find it works just fine for you. Mine isn't an uber expensive one with all the bells and whistles, just the Oster brand. Every time I try something new with it, I learn a little more about how to use it more efficiently for myself.) The stores (and the young clerks managing the counter) generally don't care why anyone returns things (especially big store like Target.)

My husband totally surprised me with a new bread machine for Christmas (He is very understanding of me and this disease.) I have a gluten-free loaf baking as we speak so we'll see how it turns out. It is a Toastmaster TBR15. Everywhere he went looking for one, he was told by many salespersons they will not be carrying bread machines anymore because no one buys them. Hmmmm. Will let you know how it turns out. :ph34r:

Bread turned out tasting great!!! My new machine made a smaller loaf than my old Toastmaster, but the bread is good and holds together. Sorry, though, the recipe I used has both eggs and yeast. :unsure:

Hello everyone, I'm not sure if any of you have the answer, but if you could help me out with what I may have done wrong that would be great! I purchased a Breadman breadmaker, since it was a great sale price at Target, because I had read that many people make wonderful gluten free breads in the breadmakers, and mine in the oven have been flops. Anyhow, I used the super rapid rise cycle like I've read since it only kneads once. I did not however use the rapid rise yeast (maybe this was my problem?) My problem was, when it was the machine stopped baking because it was "done" the bread still looked like it needed another 30 minutes baking. I could not figure out how to set a time to continue baking, and looked in the manual and there is nothing saying how to continue baking if your bread isn't done. I'm getting so frustrated I'm about to give up on all of this and take the machine back! I set it for the correct size of loaf, but I don't know how just by not using rapid rise yeast, would cause the bread to not be even half done when its supppose to be...

Hi Rachel. I have a Breadman TR2200C model ("ultimate" is somewhere on the box in BIG letters) but i've only used it w/ a mix. Mine makes a big deal about having all ingred at room temp b4 starting, which i suppose could be more of an issue on a rapid cycle.

But i too don't know about the yeast or how it could be responsible.

Lastly, it'd be a shame to take the machine back w/out at least getting one tasty gluten-free loaf out. Bob's Red Mill makes a mix named "Wonderful gluten-free Bread" and they ain't lyin'.

Hi Tom, I don't think mines the Ultimate one...but it did make a big deal about the ingredients being room temp. and they were, would that contribute to a way underdone loaf? I'll give there consumer services phone line a call tomarrow and ask if they have any suggestions...

Does your breadmaker have a "BAKE" setting? A couple times I had to unplug my machine and let the bread rise longer. Then I just set it to "BAKE" and it immediately starts baking. (I also accidentally hit the button once and it deflated my perfect loaf. I was so upset I ran upstairs ranting like a maniac :huh: so don't do that, it's embarrassing.)

Mines the TR846, and it doesn't have a bake setting...would letting it rise longer have any effect on the bread still being dough when its suppose to be done?? Grrah I thought the bread machine was suppose to make things easier : (, I'm going to call the consumer service line tomarrow,and hopefully they can help me, maybe theres something I can do to set it so it bakes longer, I looked in the manual and there was nothing of that sort...

    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      I've never gone fructose free so can't help much with that.  But any fruit is probably a problem.  If you are serious about avoiding fructose you could do a search and print out a list of foods to avoid. http://www.mayoclinic.org/fructose-intolerance/expert-answers/faq-20058097 Yes, it very possible to have multiple food intolerance issues.  Many people have multiple food intolerances.  It might help to avoid any foods that are sweet for now.  Meat and most veggies are probably the way to go.  You may want to get some jerky to eat for snacks.  Peanuts might be ok but you'll need to verify that.  Boiled eggs are probably ok.  Most soda would be a no-no.

      Hi Courtney, You asked about dairy, and RMJ got it right.  Celiac disease destroys the villi lining of the small intestine.  Those villi make the lactase enzyme we need to digest dairy. Sigmoid colon thickening could be related to diverticulitis.  Which according to Wiki is a fairly common condition but doesn't always cause symptoms.  Diverticulitis can cause a problem if there is an infection though.  The sigmoid colon is part of the large intestine.  Celiac disease affects the small intestine, so celiac isn't likely involved.  I am not sure why the resident suggested celiac, unless there were some other reason to do so.  Possibly the weight loss, which could be explained by celiac disease.  Thickening of the colon may happen with Crohn's disease also.  And I'm not sure about UCD (ulcerative colitis disease) but it might cause that also, not sure https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diverticulosis https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigmoid_colon http://biology-pages.info/G/GITract.html#pancreas http://www.ccfa.org/what-are-crohns-and-colitis/what-is-ulcerative-colitis/
    • So I've been glutened....
      Hi JMG, Since it's easy, and always fun, I'd blame your sister. That's what I do.  But seriously, if it's an ongoing problem, rather than an isolated incident stick with your first guess.  Then test it.   So get rid of the oat bread or the sister (her food) or anything that is a consistent part of your diet and you suspect could be the problem.  Of course processed foods are the most likely issue always. It's easy enough to drop back to a very few foods for a few days and see if things improve.  Eating with celiac isn't about having the most exciting diet, it's about eating a medically safe diet.  So it can be boring sometimes.  That's ok, being in pain is exciting but not so fun.   Boring is fine. You might ask your sister what brands of flour she used, and other ingredients.  Then check on those products for possible gluten issues.  If they turn out to be possible problems, make a note of it so you can avoid them in the future. My own sister has been gluten-free for years but she has made me sick several times with her "creations".  It really is best to trust your own cooking and nobody else's for at least 6 months as you are getting used to the diet and healing.  Then slowly branch out and add things in maybe 1 new item in a week.  Slow and controlled diet changes are the way to go.  Boring but safe.  Happy but slow.    
    • So I've been glutened....
      Jmg I am sorry to hear you are unwell. You have been so kind and helpful to me on the boards here. You deserve the time to rant too.   Everyone's suggestion of probiotic is helpful. I have taken them since the 1990's in spurts as needed but was told by my DC after this March glutening I should take it daily "for life". My local store ran out, (I buy the type that must be refrigerated so the manufacturer does not ship direct to customer.) I was ok first day without it but by day 3 I knew I had to locate some for the probiotic/ enzyme blend was necessary for me. I have still not healed well enough yet to be without. As others said it could be cc from sis or the food  industry. Within the food industry even with parameters in place errors can be made- hopefully not too often.  Often rare though especially if not designated facility.  It is hard to know some days what it was. I do hope you get better soon. Yes I do think it can affect the brain/mood. Happens to me a large amount can be immediately,  but a smaller amount by day 2 after glutening. I want to ban gluten everywhere in my environments, unrealistic I know,  but have only been able to do that at home.  Be kind and patient with yourself at this time as you would tell me. ((((((Hug)))))
    • So I've been glutened....
      Yeah I did all the bone broths and sauerkraut after my challenge. Although I wasn't very good at making sauerkraut... Its summer here now so I've eased up on the bone boiling, plus my local butcher is struggling to obtain them. As you say healing to the point where microscopic cross contamination doesn't get you would be a big win.  I was ok with coffee until last few days. I drank decaff black and would have several cups a day without issue. I'll be gutted if I can't handle it any more. I hadn't realised you could get gluten-free miso soup. Will have to look for that

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
