    Preheating process

    Wed Mar 21, 2012 9:51 am Groupie

    Some preset programs of my breadmaker, Kenwood BM450, has preheat step at start. I have been googling a while on its purpose without result. Could any folk help me to understand why preheat is necessary when all ingredients are in the baking pan before kneading start. What is its advantage? TIA

    I know that some bread machines start heating up as soon as the ingredients go in to warm up the ingredients and to provide a slightly warm environment for rising, and then heat up to full strength for baking. I am not sure mine is heating while mixing, but it is warm for rising.

    After rechecking the manual it was discovered that only wholemeal and gluten-free breads have preheat step. IIRC when kneading starts the preheat light is off.
