Summary: Aaaaaaah! This model drives our family CRAZY as there is not an option to turn off the beep reminders!!! We bought this machine to wake up to fresh warm bread in the morning but it's waking us up at 4am with the annoying beeps. Other models have the option to disarm the beep reminders but not this one. During the last 8 minutes of the second kneading cycle there are 5 LOUD beeps to remind you to add any additional ingredients your recipe requires.
Summary: My friend bought me this for Christmas from Costco. I have used this quite a bit and am very impressed. I have only tried the gluten free option but so far it has done exactly as I had expected it to. I had an older DAK bread maker which worked great for regular breads but wasn't working well for gluten free breads (you couldn't change the number of rise cycles on the DAK and gluten free breads only do well with one rise cycle) so I needed a new one.
Summary: My daughter-in-law gave me this Cuisinart Breadmaker after I had a bad experience with another brand. When I saw it was a Cuisinart I knew it was going to be good. I bought a Cuisinart Food Processor back in the day and I had it for more than thirty years. it was still working when I bought a new one. I made a perfect Gluten free loaf after having many disasters and I mean to make many more.
Summary: I am returning this after trying multiple loaves of gluten free bread (with expensive gluten free bread flour!). Not one loaf of bread turned out like when I use the exact same recipe and flour by hand.
Pros: does bake sweet bread fine
Cons: does not bake gluten free bread cannot make your own program cannot adjust kneading baking or rising times
Summary: This bread machine will not disappoint if you measure and follow the directions. It is so easy to use, just push a button and you have delicious fresh bread. I bought this bread machine to bake fresh gluten free bread. It is so easy to use with the gluten free setting and all of the recipes I have tried so far have come out perfectly. The gluten free bread I have made comes out much better than anything I have bought in the stores.
Summary: Wonderful machine! I make loaves a few times a week and have really enjoyed this. I have to say the only thing I don't love is that you can't turn off the alarm. But a great machine, easy to use and great for jams too.
