What to do with a bread maker before first use?

Hi everyone,

Please help!!! I bought a breadman bread maker (have never used a bread maker before) and the instructions are so vague I'm afraid I could get them wrong. They say: Before first use, operate the bread maker on the Fast Bake program to burn off the manufacturing oils. Does it mean I don't put any dough in it? Is it safe to operate an empty bread maker?! I want so much to test my bread maker but I truly don't want to burn it to ashes with my first try!!!

Yes you need to operate this empty. The bread pan is covered in a protective oil most likely and the cycle they tell you to use will burn this off so your first loaf doesn't taste weird. Enjoy!

And it will smell weird while that oil is cooking off--put it in the garage, or outside.

Alix and sparrowgrass,

Thanks a million, you're so sweet! I started to think that no one knew the answer to this question. I was really afraid to operate it empty before I was 100% sure I could do it. Thanks again!!!
