The Goodman bread maker is an appliance designed to allow users to make bread at home with relative ease. The bread maker stirs the ingredients first and then kneads the dough before cooking the bread inside the baking compartment.

It is recommended that standard measuring cups and spoons are used for precise measurements. Fresh ingredients will yield the best results. Always add liquid ingredients first, followed by the dry ingredients and yeast last. Operating the bread machine is generally easy to do.

Set the ingredients in the bread pan in the order listed in the recipe. Wipe the exterior of the pan to prevent burning.

Set the bread pan inside the bread machine and close the lid. Plug the power cord into a power supply.

Press the power button and then "Menu" and select "Basic" for most bread loaves.

Press "Crust" until the desired crust colour is shown, followed by "Loaf Size" and then "Start" to begin.

Wait for the bread maker to beep, indicating that the bread is finished. Open the top lid and lift out the bread pan, using oven gloves as the pan will be hot. Set the pan on a wire rack to cool.

Use the oven gloves to turn the bread pan over on the rack once slightly cooled to remove the bread. Once cool, the bread pan can be washed with soapy water and a cleaning sponge. Rinse well and dry.
