Help! Paddles of my Zojirushi bread maker baked permanently in place

rainey | Nov 7, 201104:09 PM     17

I never never bake in my bread maker but I was making the bread for my turkey stuffing and I had a busy day so I thought "what the hell".

When I came home the house smelled fantastic and the bread was all finished. I took the loaf out to cool so I could cube it up and proceeded to try to clean out the pan. There is baked dough around the spindle on the underside of the paddles and they are *glued* firmly in place. Can't get them out and can't clean away the dough.

It's been soaking in steaming hot water for more than an hour. My next step would be to add denture cleanser tablets but there's far too much dough for them to work their way through in what's left of my lifetime.

The teflon and the low profile make it impossible to get a good enough grip to pull effectively. And we don't want to wreck the damned thing. Still, this thing is designed for dough to be baked in it. I'm sure that's what most consumers do.

What are we doing wrong?
