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.

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.

If your even thinking about a bread machine this is the one to get.

Wow, why did I wait so long to buy a new bread machine? I had an older bread machine that made something that kind of looked like bread, and sometimes the bread was even usable. It has been gathering dust for many years and I decided to try it again with a newer model.

Only problem was the recipe.

Bread comes out perfect every time. We use it several times a week. Nice sized horizontal loaves, not like the cheaper machines that make vertical loaves. The machine itself looks very well made, heavy stainless. Had to add a little extra flour to the recipes, because the dough was too wet and top of loaves would collapse. Not a big deal, but adding the extra flour made nice perfectly raised loaves. Easy to clean, almost none required. Just rinse it out and start again. Simple to use. Just dump in the ingredients, choose the crust color, loaf size and type, and press start. In a couple hours you have fresh bread. Smells heavenly.

Does what is expected.

Have used this for 3 months. No defects have appeared. Have some minor issues. Really hard to see the display! It is not backlit, and certain indications are almost too far to the edge of the display to read easily. The loaf size is almost too large, whether making 1lb., 1.5lb., or 2lb. loaves.

Easily delivers delicious results!

My wife had a bread maker many years ago and greatly enjoyed it. Long story, but she’s been without it for quite a few years now and really missed it. We purchased the Cuisinart after reading numerous reviews, both on Amazon and outside sources. To say it’s a great bread maker for the money would be putting it mildly. It’s a GREAT bread maker regardless of the price. The first loaf she made was French and it came out fantastic; nice and soft inside with the crust just right. She’s now made half a dozen different types of bread and they’ve all been outstanding. Most recently, she made a loaf of whole wheat that came out incredible. We made sandwiches this evening using the wheat bread with avocado, jack cheese, and alfalfa sprouts… absolutely incredible. She says virtually anyone could follow the instructions and have great success; it’s just about foolproof. My wife says the only thing she notices in comparison to her old bread maker is that the paddle is a little difficult to remove for cleaning once the bread has baked. With her old one, the paddle came out in the bottom of the loaf which was easily removed, and made cleaning a little simpler. Not an issue per se, just worth mentioning. All in all, this is a nice machine that easily delivers delicious results.

A Good Bread Machine!

After researching, I selected the Cuisinart CBK-100 as my first bread machine. It has enough versatility so that I can grow with the Cuisinart as I learn how to bake bread, and, importantly, it fitted my budget at just $65. I started out with bread mixes and now I am making bread from scratch. I’m actually having better luck with made from scratch breads than with the mixes. Moreover, the mixes are not nearly as healthy because they (mixes) use bleached flour and other questionable ingredients. I am using recipes, mostly, from King Arthur Flour’s website and am using their products, flours, wheat gluten, grain blends, etc. The machine works very well but with some quirks. One being is that after the baking cycle is complete, I cannot add more baking time if the loaf isn’t quite done. I get an error message if I try to select the bake only cycle; says the unit is too hot. This is in contradiction to the instruction booklet. Another quibble has to do with the hard-to-read LCD display. The display is actually quite rudimentary; and it is not backlit. Tiny little “dashes” correspond with printed material next to the display. For example a dash on the display corresponds to light, medium, and dark crust color selection. The dash is hard to see. The machine appears to be well-built and has handled the first 20 or so loaves of bread just fine. I recommend this machine!

A Great Unit.

I purchased this unit after researching multiple devices on several sites and reading loads of feedback. It seemed to have the most features at a very good price so I jumped in the pool and now own this unit.

Remarkable!

I haven’t had a bread machine since the late ’80’s. Wow, they have come a long way! This bread machine works flawlessly and is a great help for this ole gal with arthritic hands. My husband takes a sandwich in his lunch everyday. Many store bought breads just don’t taste good or the texture is awful. The bread that comes out of this unit is just like grandma used to make. Wonderful and the warm bread smell as it’s baking is out of this world!
