What are the mixing instructions according to the use and care manual for Hitachi HB-B102?
I just bought a used Hitachi HB B102 bread machine. It came with French and English manuals, but only the French recipe book. Would anyone like to trade me an English version for French? Or would anyone just like to have the French one? Could anyone tell me where to find the PDF English recipe book?

Scroll half way down the page and click on "Hitachi Manual.doc"
You'll have your manual!
I apologize! I told you the URL for the manual. Here's the URL for the Recipe Book:
I hope this is what you wanted - the recipes look good!

I have an Hitachi HB-C3 bread machine but no recipe book. As this is a model only sold in Japan I can only find a recipe book in Japanese. Does anyone have a recipe book in English for this machine or know if the same machine is sold in the USA or Europe with a different model number?
This specific HB-C3 Hitachi bread machine was manufactured specifically to fit smaller Japanese kitchens and, according to the company website, is not available for international purchase. So, the possibility of finding an English recipe book for your machine is probably very low.
If you want to use it, you can break down recipes for larger machines and calculate the new measurements based upon the size of your smaller machine.
Here's two ideas -- find someone who reads Japanese to translate the recipes for you. (Might be a tough thing to do!!) Or, measure the size of the loaf of bread that it makes or the capacity of the loaf tin, and compare that to some other machine, for which you have recipes. Try to find a machine that makes small loaves, since that seems to be the difference with this machine. Or -- here's what I'd likely do -- eyeball the size, and then just cut a regular bread machine recipe in half or reduce to 2/3, and see if that works.

I bought a used HB-b101 bread machine. The measuring cup is missing. What are the equivalents?
By Martha from Mobile, AL
What am I doing wrong? Why is the crust so hard?
There could be many problems leading to a hard crust. We need more information to be able to offer a possible reason, such as: specific recipe and any changes you may have made in the recipe, brand, age and specifications of the breadmaker, etc.
I have just gotten the HB B101 bread machine. But I don't have any directions or recipes. Help!

Almost all machine manuals and instructions can be found online. Here is the instruction manual for your bread machine:
All I did was enter the machine's model number into Google. Good luck with your machine!

I have this breadmaker and I lost the recipe book that comes with it. I have the instruction manual. How can I get a copy of the recipe or cookbook that comes with it?
By Ann J.
Don't fret the Hitachi recipes. Use any bread recipe you like. That's been working for me since I bought my first bread machine over 20 years ago. Also, consider using your machine for initial kneading only. Your manual will list the time for each machine step. Then stop the machine and do final kneading/shaping manually. Whether you wish to bake a round loaf or regular loaf pans or whatever.

I have the Hitachi HB-B101 bread maker and do not have the recipe book. I never received one. Is there a way I could get one? Thank you for your time.

I don't know how you can get a manual, but to use the machine, any recipe using 2 or 3 cups of flour will work. Add ingredients in this order: liquids, dry ingredients, yeast last. If you can't figure out the bake cycle, use the dough cycle and bake the bread separately in a loaf pan in your oven. (02/18/2009)
I was given a bread machine without a book, too. I went to the Hillbilly Housewife website and found instructions on how to use bread machines. I tried it and was very pleased. It helps you figure out how big the machine is so you get the right proportions with the ingredients. Happy baking. (02/18/2009)

I have the manual which I can send via hotmail, just email me using the subject heading of bread maker recipe book. The other thing is, you might check out your local bookstore or online for this marvelous book, THE BREAD MACHINE COOKBOOK by Donna Rathmell German. This book has info about using different machines and oh the recipes she's put into this book. I hope you love it as much as I do. (02/21/2009)
If anyone needs the Hitachi Recipe Book or Manual just contact me, and I will gladly send it along. I do need your email address though, since this website does not allow attachments. Thanks-Kiki (05/06/2009)

At the top right of your Thriftyfun page you should see "Search for Answers" in a box.
Type in bread machine white bread. Your search results should say Bread Machine Recipes
for White bread. You will find one result that has 14 responses. If you will read
through those responses you will find one from Trudy Powell who gives a recipe from her
Hitachi breadmaker book. (10/17/2006)

Sorry that this is so late, but I have the same machine (with the recipe book). Here
White Bread (large size)
Hope this helps!
I have the same problem, but the recipe is on the side of the machine (and it is
surprising to see it isn't the same as Mike's!):
Your oven-fresh bread will be ready in 4 hours and 10 minutes. It is more convenient
if you use the built-in delay timer.

After I baked a loaf and it only filled up about 2/3 of the pan, I figured out why my
recipe is different than the one Mike posted. His is for a large loaf, while mine was
for "medium size." (01/19/2008)
Here's a downloadable scan of the Hitachi manual
Here is a good wheat bread recipe for a HB-B101, and it is vegan:
1 pound wheat bread:
For those of you that are confused about the measuring components of the HB-B101 bread
making machine, they are as follows: For the measuring spoon that is included with the
bread maker, a "large" refers to 1 Tablespoon; a "medium" refers to 1 teaspoon; and a
"small" refers to a 1/2 teaspoon. When the recipe uses the measuring cup that is
included with the bread maker, it is the same as the measuring cups that you would use
for liquid measurements. For example, if the recipe in the manual calls for a "3/4
measuring cup of water" use a standard measuring cup used for liquids and fill it with
water up to the 3/4 marking. The same instructions apply for the dry ingredients, e.g.
"2 measuring cups of bread flour" correspond to 2 standard cups of flour. (06/09/2008)

I found the manual here: http://tv.manualsonline.com/ex/thread/view/idThread/53813.
Scroll down and you will see "HB-B101Manual.pdf" in green lettering. Click it. To get
it, you'll have to join (free). It will ask you to enter your first name, email, and zip
code. Then try to download it again. It will. I saved it to my desktop. (10/27/2008)
For anyone that is interested in a copy of the Hitachi HB-B101 recipe book, I would be
happy to send you my PDF file. Just click on the contact button and send me your
request along with your email address somewhere in the message, and I will send it
along. Thanks. (11/10/2008)

I have an old Hitachi Bread Machine (HB-A101). It is about 16 yrs old and still kickin'!
I love the bread it makes and have come across a new recipe. My sister gave me a
'starter' for Friendship Bread and I use the starter, because it makes lots of 'babies'
and couldn't find enough people to give it away to. The bread come out delicious!
The flavor was delicately sour and quite good for a fast rising loaf, with a moist,
open, light crumb, this bread satisfies even a sourdough snob like me. Don't be afraid
Place the ingredients in the bread machine using the standard white bread setting. If
the bread tends to collapse, cut the 1/2 cup of warm water by 1-2 Tablespoons. Makes 1
half pound loaf.
I have just moved and have lost my recipe book for my Hitachi HB D102 bread machine. Does anyone know where I can get a copy? Thank you.
I need to find the owner manual for Hitachi Bread Maker (1988) HB B102. I am looking for the bread recipes. Can anyone help? Thanks.
