      I love the bread maker! I have worn out two already. It's the greatest. I've used it every day, and ended up with two that I used for my Bed & Breakfast. Every one loved the bread I baked. I have read several reviews on here and the only thing that I can think of why so many people are having trouble is that I know the measurements have to exact. I have made many loaves of bread that ended up too big, by the time they were cooked they were pushing the lid up. But no big deal for me. Also if I cut back just a fraction, I would end up with a smaller loaf, but still very good.If there isn't quit enough water(liquid) it WILL made the dough very stiff and start bumping around on the counter. Once I figured that stuff out, I would be lost with out it.

      I previously stated I had used a 'fix' for keeping the bread pan in place by putting a loaf pan on top of bread pan, closing the lid, and then putting a 3lb ankle weight on top of the lid and this enabled the breadmaker to go through all the stages and make a good loaf of bread. eventually this 'fix' would not keep the bread pan in place, the hinges on the lid broke. Now, I put the loaf pan on top of the bread pan, put the lid without hinges on top of this, then I placed my wooden physiotherapy Wobble Board on top of the lid and just for 'good luck' placed my ankle weight on top of that---probably this last step not needed. Indeed, the bread pan stayed in place during all the kneading. I remove the wobbleboard and loaf pan after the kneading has stopped and just place the hingeless lid on top. The breadmaker pan keeps in place even through the very short kneading process further into the cycle and the bread bakes up superb. Hope this might help some others to keep their machine working if they have one of these 'jumping' bread pans. I have also been told that possibly a bungee cord around the machine might work too. I do not leave the house while this breadmaker is operating in this fashion.

      Poor design

      By 

      from Toronto, ON, Canada

      Comments about Cuisinart Stainless Steel Programmable Bread Maker:

      I loved this machine when I first got it as a Christmas present 2 years ago. I loved using the delay setting and having fresh bread in the morning for my kids but... That only lasted about a year before the pan would no longer stay in the clips. It jumps all over and comes off causing the bread to not knead. I Macguyvered a solution and used a small skewer to hold the pan in place but this meant I could no longer use the delay setting. :(. Now the rubber at the bottom of the pan has completely come apart causing liquid to leak into the machine. Very disappointing. Not worth the money.

      Disappointed

      By 

      from Langley, BC, Canada

      Comments about Cuisinart Stainless Steel Programmable Bread Maker:

      My first bread machine lasted five years consequently, I bought another one. It lasted six months and then I returned it for another. That one lasted three months, so again I returned it for another one. This one has lasted just short of six months. Again I am having a problem with it. It kneads for a couple of minutes and stops for at least a minute, starts up again and hesitates again and I start wondering if it's going to start again. The loaves are about half the size and I am using exactly the same ingredients. I don't think I'll even bother returning it AGAIN! I am going to try another brand.

      Reliable and dependable

      Comments about Cuisinart Stainless Steel Programmable Bread Maker:

      Used between 5 and 7 days a week and still going strong, this has been a staple in our kitchen for over 2 years. Only trouble is the seal around the paddle shaft wears out after 6-9 mths of this heavy use. However, new pans are only twenty bucks or so and very efficient to order online.

      Problem

      By 

      from Collingwood, Ontario

      Comments about Cuisinart Stainless Steel Programmable Bread Maker:

      I am on my 2nd bread maker. I make about three loaves a week and I like the results BUT I have replced the pan and paddle 5 times!! this is a poor design as the seal breaks down, then the ingredients start to leak I to the pan. The new pan and paddle can be oredered and delivered but this adds to the cost of the overall product and is annoying. What can't Cuisinart fix this issue?

      Useless for GF bread

      By 

      from Canada

      Comments about Cuisinart Stainless Steel Programmable Bread Maker:

      I parted with my beloved "contaminated" Panasonic bread maker when I was diagnosed with Celiac disease. I have tried several reputable Gf bread mixes and this machine won't mix or make it into bread. You get a pile of browned flour at the end. A complete waste of money so don't buy it for GF bread. Hugely disappointing and I will never buy another cuisinart product again.

      Durable

      By 

      from Alberta, Canada

      Comments about Cuisinart Stainless Steel Programmable Bread Maker:

      I bought this bread maker at least 7 years ago. I bake 3 loafs every 2 weeks (about 80 loafs a year and 560 loafs since) and it still works properly. One thing other reviewers keep saying is the bread pan keep popping up. Mine has the same problem. My solution is to put 2 silicon pot holders (the small v-shape one) between the pan and the wall of the bread maker and it will stop it. It is a design flaw but it it durable.

      Great bread but recurrant issues with machine

      By 

      from Thunder Bay, ON, Canada

      Comments about Cuisinart Stainless Steel Programmable Bread Maker:

      We absolutely love the bread that comes from this machine, along with the doughs we mix for pizzas and buns, etc. Like others have posted here, I have had the bread pan jump out of position during the initial kneading of the dough. MEGA annoying but I created a fix. I drilled a small hole in the clip and use a broad headed screw whose thread fits through the hole to keep it down. Works great but clearly I should not have to do this. I put the pan in and then place the screw on the pan. Clearly, you have to remove the screw to take the pan out again. A clamp mechanism would be a great thing to add because some of the recipes require mixing of thick doughs that cause the pan to pop out. The other annoying occurrence for us is that the pans only last about 18 months before they start to leak making overnight making of bread impossible. Cuisinart was great about replacing the first pan on warranty but now I am faced with buying one. I see this as a design flaw that should be fixed but I am not sure how they would do that. Because of the quality of the finished product, I would recommend the machine with the added instructions above.

      Argh! Popping up pan when kneading!

      By 

      from Cornwall, Ontario

      Comments about Cuisinart Stainless Steel Programmable Bread Maker:

      Sorry for the others on here, but I am glad I am not alone with this issue! The 'mad scramble' is helping me to look for another brand. The machine I have now is a replacement for one that stopped baking properly, but now is out of warranty - so I am stuck with this 'jumping bean' until I can afford another one(from another company, if possible). The bread is fine, though.
