If you recently invested in a bread machine or you have revived your old one, below are the tips you need to know. And once you’ve made that delicious bread, Lenexa Manufacturing Company can take care of all your needs for bagging and slicing bread machine maintenance.
How to Keep Your Bread Machine in Good Shape
#1: Unplug and Let It Cool
Before fixing or cleaning any machine, it’s highly important that you unplug it from the power source. If the machine heats up, let it cool first before applying anything on the surface. Once it is unplugged and has fully cooled down, proceed to the next step.
#2: Know What Parts Need to be Oiled
If you have an old bread machine, it will probably make some noises. Most of the time, the noises are coming from the bread spindle shaft on the underside of your bread pan. You can fix this by simply oiling it.
However, even if you don’t notice any unusual noise, you still have to oil the bread spindle shaft at least once every six months. This will ensure it functions smoothly and friction among the bread machine parts can be avoided.
To oil the bread spindle shaft, experts suggest that you only use either sewing machine oil or 3-in-1 oil.
#3: Clean Carefully
Everybody wants to eat mouthwatering herb and parmesan bread, sweet granola bread, and fresh bagels. But, no one wants to help clean the dishes and baking trays. Unfortunately, clean-ups are important if you want your bread-making machine and other parts to last as long as possible.
To increase the lifespan of your baking trays, tools, and other parts of the bread-making machine, you’ll have to hand-clean most of them. You have to hand-clean most of the bread pans after use to make sure that there are no food particles left.
Additionally, all bread machines are not dishwasher safe. Hence, the key to carefully and thoroughly cleaning this hefty tool is to use a non-abrasive scrubbing tool, water, and dishwashing soap. Remember to avoid using abrasive scrubbers, harsh chemicals, and bleach to keep the pan’s surface in good condition. Here’s a step-by-step instruction on how to clean your bread machine:
- Keep it simple – Remove the detachable parts, collect the crumbs in a pile, and sweep them out using a brush or dry cloth.
- Use a damp cloth to gently wipe the insides of the machine, including the heating elements. Make sure not to get the insides wet.
- Pat the machine parts dry to avoid rusting.
