[Sca-cooks] partly on-topic, partly off: bread

You also have the option on the bread machine to not have it bake the bread.  Choose the dough cycle and you can then bake the bread yourself.  Much more control over the baking process.

I've been told that if you open the oven during baking, it can make your

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.
