Can I use this mix in my 1 pound capacity or 1.5 pound capacity bread machine?

We have designed our mixes specifically for 2 lb. capacity machines. However, you may still find success with 1.5 lb. capacity machines. You may expect to see the top of the loaf touch the lid of the machine towards the end of the baking cycle. This may lead to imperfect baking in that one spot on the loaf. The rest of the loaf should be fine. For 1 lb. bread machines, we recommend only running the bread on the dough cycle and then transfer the dough to a pan for baking in a conventional oven. See packaging for more info.

Why do the directions ask me to use a thermometer?

Yeast is very sensitive to heat and other environmental factors. We have tested and designed our mixes to find the sweet spot for yeast activity to get the best rise. Even just a few degrees off on water temperature can make a big impact on the quality of your bread. Measuring the temperature of your water accurately is the best way to ensure consistently successful bread baking.

I followed the directions exactly and I see had a problem with my bread? What can I do?

Sometimes bread issues happen. We are happy to help. Send us a picture of your bread and a picture of the back packaging of your bread mix to our customer support email at Include as much detail as possible about your baking process and bread machine model so we can troubleshoot the cause of the issue.

Should I adjust my mix for high altitudes?

We don't recommend making any changes to the mix for high altitudes. We have tested our mixes in a variety of locations and have fine tuned each mix to be the best product possible.

"Better than the Deli! Baked this yesterday, and it was delicious. Made Rueben’s with it today & they were better than the deli!!"  Jimmy Ferreira 


It's a crusty, chewy rye bread with lots of rye flavor, a sourdough-like sharpness, and just enough dill. It makes great deli sandwiches. It even makes a chewy, crunchy toast.

"Oh, the smell of this bread. Rye bread already smells great when baking (or when you open the bread box), but this one takes that to new heights with the addition of dill. Great for sandwiches. If you want to think outside of deli meats, I have found this is delicious with a salmon spread (cream cheese based) or salmon salad (think tuna salad swapped with salmon). The dill is a great companion to salmon."  Suzanne Jackson

Now your kitchen just became your family's favorite deli.

I love all three of the mixes I ordered!

I love all three of the mixes I ordered, one being the New York Dill Rye Gourmet Bread Mix. I started ordering from The Prepared Pantry during the COVID lockdown, and I've never been disappointed.

I enjoy baking bread and giving it away as gifts. I give them to family and neighbors, that tell me how much they enjoyed the bread.
