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.

I don't have a bread machine or a stand-type mixer. Can I still make this bread in my oven?


Oh my, this is great bread!

This is a traditional New York rye bread: chewy, crusty, and flavorful.

It is a medium light-colored bread and has the distinctive taste of rye with or without the optional caraway seeds. This is an exceptional bread mix.

Joan Hull
Delicious NY rye

Makes a wonderful Reuben sandwich!


Yeast in packet was dead. Used my own. It was not what I expected in its "behaviour". However, it all worked out and made delicious sandwiches! I do not use a bread machine.

Fabulous Rye Bread!

This is the best rye bread I've ever had. The grocery stores and bakeries where I live don't have good rye bread. This is outstanding!

Thank you, again, for another delicious mix.
