I'd be interested to know the same thing.  But I use a workaround -- I
simply select the normal bread setting, and time it so that the dough is
done when I want it.

For example, if I want dough to be finished kneading and rising when I
get home at 5:00 p.m., I can add the ingredients in the morning, select
regular bread, and set the time of completion for 7:30 or so.  Thus the
machine will knead from 3:30-4:00, and the dough will rise from 4-5:00.
I can then take it out and reset the machine when I get home (before it
starts baking).

I haven't had much luck getting the blade out on my Zoji, either.  Out
of my 388 loaves, I've probably taken the blade out a couple dozen
times.  Sometimes I'll try slipping a string underneath it and pulling
up, but it's still hard.

I'm not convinced there's a downside of not removing the kneading blade
each time, though...can anyone elaborate on why this is crucial?
