I've been told that if you open the oven during baking, it can make your
> bread collapse. Is this true?
I have never had my bread collapse when I've opened the lid on my bread
machine. The heat doesn't escape that quickly. You shouldn't leave the lid
up for a long time. You have to open the machine to add ingredients
mid-cycle - like fruits and nuts and such for heartier breads, some machines
will even beep to tell you when.
