Sunbeam 5891 2-pound Programmable Breadmaker

Recommended Posts

I couldn't bring myself to pay $200 for a bread machines so I ordered the Sunbeam 5891 2-Pound Programmable Breadmaker for about $40. The UPS man should deliver it today. I have on hand one of the Pamela's wheat-free bread mixes.

Searching thru this site, I see lots of messsages where people have varying success with machines and/or settings. Does anyone have any tips for this particular machine or at least for Sunbeam?

Thank you,

No replies but I noticed that several people had viewed the thread indicating there might be some interest.

As soon as I unpacked it I used a package of Pamela's Wheat-free mix. I followed the package instructions which said to put the liquids in, then the mix then the yeast (consistent with the bread machine's instructions). The mix said to use a basic bread setting not gluten-free. That was setting 1 on the Sunbeam, I set two pound loaf, medium crust.

Three hours later I had a very good loaf of bread. Seems a little long since I could do the oven method in about two hours but there was no required actions during those three hours.

For others looking at this combination of machine/mix:

1) I opened the cover and scraped out the sides/corners half-way thru the intial mix and it seemed to restart. I might have done something wrong there. I'll try not scraping to see how well the relatively sticky batter pulls the dry mix out of the corners.

2) The directions were real clear about cooling in the machine versus on a rack still in the pan versus out of the pan. I took it out and sliced within a few minutes. I think a longer cooling would at least allow me to slice better because I wouldn't be burning my fingers.
