Wake up to the smell of freshly baked bread with this programmable bread machine. Simply add the ingredients, choose from several options using the touch-pad controls, and it takes care of the rest. It will mix the ingredients, knead the dough, let it rise, and bake it to perfection--soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. Choose from 12 preprogrammed menu options; 1-, 1-1/2-, and 2-pound loaf sizes; and three crust settings--light, medium, or dark. 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.

Mix-Ins: During the last 8 minutes of the second kneading cycle for several on selected programs an audible signal of 5 short beeps will sound to remind you to add any additional ingredients your recipe requires (such as nuts and seeds, raisins and dried fruits, shredded chesses, chocolate morsels).
After Mixing/Kneading is completed there will be an audible signal of 6 short beeps, before the last rise cycle, indicating the point at which the mixing/kneading is complete. At this point in the bread making process you have the option of removing the kneading paddle, to avoid a small hole in the bottom of your baked loaf, and/or re-shaping the dough, though neither is necessary.
There will be a series of 15 beeps to signal the end of the baking cycle: the bread display window will read 00:00 and the unit will be in the Warm Cycle. Your bread will be kept warm for 60 minutes to prevent it from becoming soggy. For optimal results, we recommend removing the loaf as soon as the baking cycle is complete and letting it cool on a baking rack. All breads slice best when allowed to cool for a minimum of 30 minutes before slicing.
Frequently Asked Questions
Gluten free cycle?
Yes, it has a gluten free cycle. This is really important if you are cooking gluten free bread, as it only has one rise cycle, rather than 2 in regular bread.
What is the difference between this Cuisinart CBK-100 and the Cuisinart CBK-200?
The CBK-200 has a max 12-hour delay cycle vs the CBK-100 13-hour. The CBK-200 also has 16 program settings, that's 4 more than the 100. Low carb and artisan dough are some of the newer settings. The CBK-200 acts like a convection oven (meaning that the heat is assisted by fans to force air movement) resulting in a more even bake, this is lacking on the 100. In terms of physical difference, the CBK-200 is 8lbs lighter than the 100 (14 vs 22) and their dimensions are 14.5" x 7.5" x 12.5" and 16 1/2" x 10 1/4" x 12" respectively.
Does this have a "dough only" setting? Once the dough is mixed and ready for baking can you remove it to bake in the oven.
Yes that is one of the settings of this wonderful machine.
