The Conair Cuisinart CBK-IOO 2 LB Loaf Bread Maker is a valuable addition to any family home. Bread makers in general bring the ease of baking wholesome and healthy bread without the time and effort that usually goes into kneading, preparing and baking a normal loaf.
The Conair Cuisinart CBK-IOO 2 LBis produced by a well known appliance manufacturer and one that has many years of experience in making these types of products.
The appliance like a lot of modern day kitchen products comes with an interactive and easy to use digital lcd display panel. From here even the most novice of users can program up to 13 type of bread with the minimum of fuss. The bread machine can make a range of bread sizes to suit any family. These range from the smaller 1.0 1b load right through to a larger family size 25 1b loaf of bread.
The product also comes with a seed and nut dispenser which is a great advantage if you want to be more adventurous in your bread making. Just add the necessary ingredients and the machine will deepens them at the required time in the baking cycle.
Unlike a number of other products on the market this comes with a viewing window. The usual temptation with products without windows is to open the oven to see how things are progressing. This has the unfortunate effect of hampering the baking cycle and can negatively impact the finished loaf. Look through the window and put your mid at rest as you can see the bread rise with each passing minute.
Another feature of this appliance is that is allows you to control the crust. Three options of light, medium and dark are available depending upon your preference.
One fault levelled at a lot of bread machines is that your bread comes out with a large hole at the bottom of the loaf. This is caused by the paddles that mix the bread during the kneading cycle. The Conair Cuisinart CBK-IOO 2 LB gets around this by using a collapsible kneading paddle. Once the kneading cycle is complete the paddle drops down through the dough and the baking takes place with it removed from the bread.
By far the best feature which ships with this product is the 13 hour delay timer. This allows you to set the ingredients the night before and then bake your bread through the night when you are sleeping. You can then wake to the fresh smell of lovely bread first thing in the morning for breakfast. Likewise you can set and forget when you go to work and come back to a baked loaf at dinner time.
The product is also a good size for most kitchens. A lot of modern bread makers are quite large however despite the fact that this can make up to a 251b loaf of bread the 9.6 x 16.4 x 13.3 inch dimensions and 16.8 1b weight do not make this appliance to cumbersome.
There were a handful of negative evaluations of this unit however which isn’t all that surprising as with with any kind of product. A handful of buyers complained that their loaf of bread was not fully cooked while other folks complained that it was basically over cooked. A few other customers that have had unsuccessful attempts at baking bread referred to their loaf of bread as bricks as opposed to loaves.
No item is going to be flawless and satisfy 100% of the people all the time but the sheer number of encouraging opinions of this product far outweigh the small amount of negative reviews by a ratio of 6 to 1.
The bread maker ships with a manual which contains around 46 different recipes. Most are easy to master with a minimum of fuss. Type of bread that can be made by this bread maker include basic bread, gluten free crusty loaf, whole wheat and sweet bread. The bread machine will also make dough for pizza miz and even fruit jams.
