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.

What makes a potato bread - this bread - so good?

Potato flour adds a mild, tangy flavor to bread, almost like sourdough. This bread is not intensely flavored like San Francisco sourdough--more like the gentle sour taste of European country breads.

Potato flour doesn't form gluten like wheat flour does. So it has a finer texture, a polished more sophisticated crumb without the large holes of most homemade breads.

Potato flour keeps the bread moist and soft. It's called hygroscopic--it draws moisture from the air rather than drying out as pure wheat bread does. It's still predominately wheat flour, and it will dry out, but it stays moist and soft longer.

Rating for 2 try’s.

Such a disappointment. I tried a white loaf in my Bosch, and it was like a stone. I just put a wheat loaf in my bread machine-added more water than called for, and it mixed up like a rock in the middle of the pan. I really wanted this to work!! Sad!!!
