According to the directions for fruit and nut breads you add all the ingredients at once at the beginning, and so apparently it doesn't have a delay.

On some of the cycles the machine will not stop but you will hear a beeping sound telling you when to add fruit, nuts, or whatever you want to add to the pan as its mixing.

Add fruits and nuts before, or during the last kneading cycle. Just flip open the lid and toss them in. There have been more expensive machines that dumped in these "extras" from a separate compartment- but they did not work very well for me. Adding them manually seemed to be most effective and satisfying for me.

Yes you can, however I've found it's cheaper to purchase a 25 lb. bag of flour & Instant yeast from Sam's Club. I bake for my boys who live nearby & a bag lasts me a couple of months & believe me, I don't purchase any bread or buns, I'm older & don't like eating breads with all the preservatives. I use this machine at least 4 times a wk. making not only breads, jams, bagels, French Bread, buns, & doughnuts & a bag lasts me approx. 6 wks. Just make sure to keep the yeast in the freezer, it will last quite awhile. For a mere $13.00 to keep me in flour, it's well worth the price.

yes, I haven't used them myself, but have seen them in the stores. The recipes are so simple you should really try. It is dump it in, set it, and you will be so surprised! My dad made bread like crazy and was so proud of it, gave it away to the grandkids. He even got to the dough stage, and made mini loaves :) You will be surprised how easy it really is...like rice krispies treats :)

There is one Nut Bread recipe under the Quick Bread cycle with Banana, Cherry Pecan, Cranberry Nut and Date variations.

It is metal with a black baked on surface inside and out. The bread slides out very easily, and the mixing paddle stays in the machine when the bread is removed rather than coming out with the bread.

This bread maker has just about everything. From Basic, French, Whole Wheat, Quick, Sweet, Super Rapid, Dough, Jam, Cake, & Sandwich. The recipes included are good. I've only had this machine for 1 month now & absolutely loved it from the first time I used it. You can make 1 1/2 or 2 lb. loaf. There are settings for Loaf Size & Crust Color. The Strawberry Jam is FANTASTIC. My husband loves it. I've made quite afew recipes from the booklet however my booklet didn't carry the instructions in English, but you can download & print them. The French bread is to die for. Also the Raisin Nut Bread. I did make the Sandwich Bread & baked it in the machine. The only thing I don't care for, is the kneading paddle stuck in the bottom of the loaf & it was necessary to use the tool they include to remove it. I prefer baking my bread in the oven, & really no one knows it actually was made in a bread maker. I have a large toaster oven which I use several times a wk. & the bread comes out wonderful. A GREAT Bread maker. You won't be disappointed.
