How to Use the Welbilt Bread Machine


Use one Welbilt bread maker, and you can use them all. All bread-making machines do the same thing -- mix, knead and bake flour, water and yeast. Welbilts differ in body style -- some models have a clear lid, others opaque -- and capacity, as some can handle up to a 2-pound loaf, whereas others max out at a 1 1/2 pound-loaf. But they all have an easy-to-understand user interface, so as long as you add the ingredients in the right order, you'll have bread in about 1 hour.

Things You'll Need

  • Flour
  • Yeast
  • Water
  • Salt
  • Portion the flour, yeast and warm water, and a pinch or two of salt. For a 1-pound loaf of bread, measure 1 cup each of flour and water, and 2 1/4 teaspoons of active-dry instant yeast. To make a 1 1/2-pound loaf of bread, measure 1 1/2 cups each of flour and water, and 1 tablespoon of active-dry yeast. For a 2-pound loaf of bread, measure 2 cups each of flour and water, and 4 1/2 teaspoons of active-dry instant yeast.

  • Remove the loaf pan from the bread maker and attach the kneading blade. Add the ingredients in the following order: water, flour and yeast. Return the loaf pan to the bread maker and close the cover.

  • Press the Menu button until the display shows the type of bread you are making; options include Basic, Whole Wheat and French, depending on the model of bread maker. When you have reached your selection, press OK.

  • Select the level of doneness when prompted: options include Light, Medium and Dark.

  • Choose the size of loaf when prompted: 1 pound, 1 1/2 pounds or 2 pounds.

  • Press Start. The bread maker beeps five consecutive times when ready; it takes about 1 hour to finish a 1-pound loaf. The bread maker keeps bread warm for up to 1 hour.
