Bread maker for gluten-free baking

A bread maker is an electrical small-sized household device, the main functional purpose of which is baking – bakery products at home.

The gluten-free oven allows you to bake gluten-free bread, which is suitable for people with allergies and diabetes.

Principle of operation

Principle of operation

Baking of bakery products in a bread machine takes place automatically and excludes human participation by 99%.

To obtain the finished product, ingredients are poured into the bucket-container, the desired program is selected and launched using the buttons on the control panel.

The program algorithm provides for the following technological operations:

  • dough kneading;
  • dough proofing;
  • second batch;
  • baking.

The design of the bread machine consists of the following elements and assemblies:

  • frame;
  • baking chamber;
  • lid;
  • container form;
  • spatula for kneading dough;
  • spindle;
  • a heating element;
  • control Panel.

A container mold or bowl is a component of a bread machine in which the product is directly baked. At the bottom of the bowl is a spatula for kneading dough. The dough mixer is driven by a relay connected to a motor.

The baking chamber is a working compartment in which the temperature regime necessary for baking is created.

Inside the baking chamber there is a heating element, the role of which is performed by a loop heating element, as well as a rotating mechanism that drives the blade for kneading dough.

To control the temperature, a sensor is used (often represented by a thermistor).

The control panel of a household appliance, depending on the model, is:

  • push-button;
  • sensory.

The advantage of a keypad control is reliability. The touch panel is easy to use, however, there may be malfunctions of the device, primarily associated with power surges.



When choosing a bread machine, pay attention to the basic characteristics of the device:

  • case and baking dish;
  • performance;
  • power;
  • boundary mass of bread at the exit;
  • unit weight.

Body and baking dish

Today on the market of household appliances you can find two types of electric bread makers – with horizontal and vertical design. Each type of device has its own advantages and disadvantages.

Horizontal bread machines bake bread, the shape of which is as close as possible to the store counterpart, such a bakery product is convenient for slicing. Bread rises better in vertical ovens.

Bread makers of a horizontal design are more expensive than vertical ones, their dimensions are larger. For uniform dough kneading, horizontal electric bread machines are usually equipped with two blades.

Manufacturers use plastic, aluminum, stainless steel for the manufacture of the body and baking dishes. The aluminum and stainless steel container is coated with a non-stick coating.

Plastic containers are easier to maintain, they are lighter, cheaper, but at the same time they are not durable and fragile. Machines with a metal body and shape are more reliable, functional, and durable.


The performance of a home electric bread maker directly depends on the power of the unit and the boundary weight of the finished product. Depending on the model, the maximum weight of finished products reaches 450-2000 grams.

Some models of bread machines are equipped with the function of adjusting the size and weight of the bakery product. The user is prompted to set the weight of the finished loaf – 700, 1200, 1500 or 1800 gr.

The power of the electric bread maker lies in the range of 420-1650 watts. The higher the power, the less time it takes to bake bread and the higher the electricity consumption.

Low-power machines are equipped with less functionality. With the performance of the unit 500-1000 gr. rational power is considered to be the range of 550-1000 watts.

Bread machine weight

This characteristic depends on the material of the body, the baking container and the dimensions of the electric bread maker. On average, the weight of the machine ranges from 4 to 8 kg.


Additional functions

Weighty selection criteria are the additional functionality of the machine.

Some models of bread machines are equipped with two or more molds with non-stick coating, which allow you to bake different types of bread – pita bread, ciabatta, baguette, buns.

Models with double containers are presented on the household appliances market, such a constructive solution makes it possible to bake two bakery products at the same time, thereby increasing the productivity of the appliance.

Bread makers provide for the presence of basic programs:

  1. standard – the duration of baking bread from kneading dough to obtaining finished products is 3.5 hours;
  2. express baking – you can get the finished product in two hours;
  3. kneading yeast and yeast-free dough;
  4. function “crust” – sets the degree of roasting of the crust:
  • pale,
  • golden,
  • fried.

The number of operating modes of the bread machine can be from three to seventeen programs.

Popular additional modes:

  • gluten-free baking – baking bakery products from corn, buckwheat, pearl barley or rice flour;
  • Borodino bread from wholemeal flour;
  • sweet pastries;
  • Rye bread;
  • making jam;
  • making yogurt.

The additional functionality of electric bread machines include:

  • timer – the option allows you to delay the start of the program for 6-15 hours;
  • dispenser – is a separate compartment in the lid of the electric bread machine, into which additional ingredients (raisins, sesame, seeds, nuts, etc.) are poured. During the operation of the device, this device automatically adds the necessary components to the dough;
  • convection – provides circulation of hot air inside the unit;
  • child protection – this function blocks the opening of the lid while the machine is running;
  • viewing window – designed to control the baking process without opening the lid of the machine;
  • maintaining the temperature of the finished product – the bakery product remains warm for 10 hours;
  • memory reserve – the function provides for the automatic recovery of a process interrupted as a result of a power failure.

Troubleshooting Ways

Frequent breakdowns of electric bread machines:

  • failure of the mixer mechanism;

Cause: Most often, the reason that the bowl scrolls or does not spin at all is related to the relay or motor.

Troubleshooting: check the contacts, the belt on the pulley, the presence of lubrication. In case of failure of specific parts, replacement will be required.

  • liquid flow to the bottom of the housing;

Reason: a leak in the area of ​​the movable joint of the bowl may be due to the wear of the gland (the rubber gasket cracks under the influence of high temperatures).

Solutions: replace the rubber gasket.

The oil seal is replaced in the following sequence:

  1. dismantling the retaining ring, through which the form is attached to the shaft;
  2. remove the shaft
  3. dismantle the seal;
  4. treat the shaft with graphite grease;
  5. shaft installation;
  6. seal installation;
  • leaking baking dish;

Reason: crack, leak.

Solution to the problem: purchase of a new capacity in the service center.

  • bread is not baked.


– the temperature sensor has failed;

– failure of the heating element;

– failure of the electronic board or programmer.


– if the cause of the breakdown is related to the failure of the temperature sensor or heating element, then the replacement of unusable elements can be done at home;

– in case of failure of the electronic board or the programmer, it is better to contact the service center.

  • the bread machine does not turn on, there is no power from the mains;


– socket malfunction;

– damage to the cord;

– failure of the fuse, which is located near the power supply.

Solution of the problem:

– ring the socket;

– make sure the power cord is intact;

– check the fuse for breakdown using a tester, if necessary, replace it.

Operation procedure:

1) remove the dashboard of the electric bread machine by unscrewing the screws;

2) ring the thermal fuse with a break tester: if the current does not pass, then the fuse is out of order;

3) install a new thermal fuse by twisting the contacts with wires and crimping with pliers.
