Other highlights include a 13-hour delay-start timer, a removable lid with a viewing window, power-failure backup, sturdy stay-cool handles, and a removable kneading paddle and bread pan for easy cleanup. Accessories include a measuring cup, a measuring spoon, and foolproof recipes for gluten-free breads, as well as jams and sauces. Mix-ins must be added at the very beginning of the cycle with other basic ingredient. With its modern design and embossed logo, the bread machine measures 18 by 12-1/5 by 15 inches.

Debunking the negative reviews

 on December 30, 2010

We bought this machine based on a recommendation from a friend at work and other reviews we read on Amazon. First of all, let me say that this is a great product. The recipes are easy to follow and the bread is outstanding. We brought the machine with us when we visited relatives over the holidays, and two of them are now going to get machines for their families.

Use it all the time.

I really love this breadmaker. I have made about 200 loaves of bread in the last 16 months. Here are my tips for consistently making great bread:

Great machine. Read if you want to get rid of the annoying beeps (buzzer)

After reading Amazon reviews on various competitor brands, I’ve decided to go with this model. It’s cheap, and has most functions you would want.

Works well with a few small possibilities for improvement

I’ve had this bread machine for almost 5 years now and I’ve used it anywhere from a few times a month to a few times a week. I’m mostly quite happy with it, aside from a few minor issues that I think could be better.

Great machine with some issues!

The first machine, I had to returned because it did not cook properly the bread. After the second unit, I have to say that this bread maker is an excellent machine but you need to understand that the Instructions are horrible. Perhaps the type of ingredients are the issue . If you use the recipes given in the book you will return the machine. If you begin using the different settings you will waste your ingredients and your time. I did realize that after many trials. Just use the simple setting the regular white bread by default select loaf size 2 lb loaf and dark or whatever term you want in your bread and voila! Great bread in 3 hr 25 min. I add the Quinoa, raisins, walnuts when the machine requires to add them, after 30 min or so, let the machine do its cycle and remove the blade at the last 1 hr 25 min perfect 2 lb loaf bread. It only takes me less than 5 min to set it up with all ingredients and up and running. They key for the perfect bread is the water cups which are not properly given in the manual instruction. Perhaps the ingredients are not the same used by the person that wrote the booklet. For me at this point and one up to two breads per week, which means many loafs after a year or so.

A must!

Easy to use. Great recipes in the booklet. First time using one and the bread turned out great! I left the paddle in to see what kind of hole it would leave- pleasantly surprised that it was only quarter sized. Did a basic white loaf and it took 3 hrs and 25 minutes total. I actually put my son down for a nap, I added my ingredients, turned it on, made the quick settings, and then took a nap myself. Its a lot quieter than my Kitchen aid stand mixer. The only thing I hate is that there isn’t an option to turn the beeps off- which I totally understand because if you want to add any mix-ins then you need to be able to hear it beep. Oh and when you are done with it, unplug it- there isn’t an off/on switch. Also, it doesn’t get too ridiculously hot when it’s baking- my Cuisinart brick oven will BURN you on all sides, so I keep that contraption pushed back on my high countertop. This bread machine I feel totally safe using on my coffee bar with my 4 year old around. It’s on my coffee bar because I will be using it frequently. Very happy with this purchase!

Nice machine

Seems to work very well. The paddle is quite large and does a nice job mixing the ingredients, but remove it before the actual baking cycle. Otherwise, it causes a cavernous hole in the completed loaf–much larger than my previous bread machine. The machine provides multiple loud beeps when you are allowed to remove the paddle. I have only a few minor complaints: 1) I need to use a flashlight to see through the dark glass (you don’t want to be opening the lid more than necessary), 2) it claims to be programmable, but I haven’t figured out how a custom program is possible, and 3) when I make gluten-free bread, the glass gets too fogged up to see through at all (possibly this would happen with any bread maker). In all, it was less expensive than the other gluten-free bread makers. There is no real manual provided, and you will need to download it. If you have trouble finding the site, feel free to ask me.

I am enjoying using this

So far I have been using box bread mixes and they have come out very nice. The bread pan is very easy to clean. I haven’t had time to make my own rolls and such, but I’ll get to that. Very simple, classy look. The stainless finish is consistent with many of my small appliances, so I like that. I am 5’5″ so I am tall enough to see the control panel when this is on my counter. I’ve just been using the same setting and the bread comes out the same every time. What a difference than from a bagged bread with all the preservatives! Love the handles on the side, they are more at my elbow height when I lift the bread machine, so I am not doing an awkward lift. Ergonomics matter.

Excellent quality and bread making results! Poor timer/time indication design.

Excellent Cuisinart quality and looks. Arrived triple boxed with easy registration. I’ve now baked a wholewheat with nut bread and a French/Italian Dill weed bread, both 2 pound loafs. The wheat loaf with light crust came out great. I used a timer and the addin signal is at 56 minutes elapsed time and the remove paddle signal is at 3 hrs 4 minuets elapsed time, with total time of 4 hrs 38 minutes. The wheat cycle has a 30 minute warm up which the book doesn’t mention… I thought the unit was not working at first.

and 1 sweet bread-which is more like a cake)

I just received this little darling 4 days ago, and have already made 7 loaves!! (3 regular white breads, 3 rapid bake quick breads, and 1 sweet bread-which is more like a cake). LOVE IT! Dump the stuff in, turn it on, and poof! you’re done! It is so simple! This product does everything it describes. The actual loaf pan is approx 6″ wide, 8″ long, and 6″ deep. This will be the size of your loaf. It makes 1 lb,, 1 1/2 lb., and 2 lb. loaves. The only difference in the size is the height of the bread. I have not made a 1 lb loaf yet, but I’m guessing that would be the only one that might fit into a regular bread bag. The loaf is only 8″ long, but it makes man-size bread slices – wide and tall. I’m actually using it right now…on my 8th loaf…and I can smell it…..mmmm….yummy! Highly recommend for ANYONE! I’m a stay at home grandmother, and I love it for the convenience. Working people can dump the ingredients in and set the delay on it to have fresh baked bread ready for them when they get out of work or wake up in the morning. This product is attractive, and doesn’t look gaudy sitting on the counter. It’s also light enough to move around easily. I don’t usually ramble on so much about anything (Except my grandkids) but this thing is fabulous! Buy it now…..you will not be disappointed! It also has gluten free recipes! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!
