BM260 Manuals/ FAQs/ Support

  • Can any of your bread makers make gluten free bread?

    All new models have gluten free settings and include recipes – models include BM260, BM366 and BM450. However the older models - for example the BM200 - do not have a suitable setting for this purpose.

  • Where can I find more bread maker recipes?

    Lots of recipes specially constructed for the BM450, BM260 and BM366 bread machine can be found within our recipe section of the website.

    These recipes should also work well with older machines but please check quantities carefully, particularly with compact models.

  • I have plugged in my bread maker but nothing has happened. Is it broken?

    Kenwood bread makers come with an on/off switch situated under the right hand handle on the BM150 and on the rear of the BM250, BM450 and BM260/BM366.

    Make sure you plug the appliance in before turning the on/off switch, and always turn it off before unplugging the appliance.

  • My bread maker is quite noisy when it is kneading the dough. Is this normal?

    The dough is very heavy and will rock from side to side, so the bread maker will be noisier during the kneading part of the bread making process.

    The noise will abate once the kneading stage has completed and the settling and baking process begins.

  • Can I make hot cross buns with my bread maker?

    Here is a hot cross bun recipe suitable for bread makers. Alternatively select the dough cycle and bake in the oven.

  • Can I substitute milk for powdered milk in a recipe for my bread machine?

    You can use powdered milk instead of fresh milk but you will need to make the milk first. Check the directions on the milk powder packet for instructions and make the required amount.

  • Can I leave the powdered milk out of the recipe?

    Yes you can – it is there to improve the taste and looks of the finished loaf, but can be left out with substitution in a recipe.

  • Why is there no 500g recipe for brown and wholemeal bread?

    We do not recommend baking a 500g loaf of brown bread in the bread maker because the results were not suitable for inclusion. For best result the minimum recommended loaf size for brown or wholemeal bread is 750g.

  • How long does homemade bread last?

    Bread made from your bread machine is best eaten on the same day, but if kept in an airtight area will last for 2 to 3 days depending on the type. Most bread types can be kept in the freezer.  

    If the bread is slightly stale it can be used for bread pudding, croutons or baked French toast to save wasting it. Or use a processor to whips up some breadcrumbs for use with one of our delicious recipes!
