Re: Paddle Sticking

I've been lurking, since most of you are WAYYY more expert than I. However, 
here's my solution to the bread machine paddle issue:

I calculate (there's a chart in the book that came with the machine) how 
long it takes for all the kneading, and as soon as that's all done, I open 
the lid and pull out the paddle, gently reshape the dough and close the lid 
for the rising and baking part. Voila!

I used to use a size K crochet hook to twist the paddle out but setting a 
timer to let me know when the kneading  (and air squeeze) parts are done is 
MUCH better.

   Hope this helps!
