Cuisinart Convection Bread Maker CBK-100 and 200 bake bread in five steps: preheating, kneading, rising, baking, and keeping warm. The machines can be set to skip the kneading steps or stopped after kneading to bake dough in a conventional oven, giving the chef complete control.
Cuisnart Convection Bread Makers have an easy-to-read control panel and come with 12 to 16 preset menu options including basic white, gluten-free and sweet bread. Each machine also offers three different crust color and loaf size options as well as a setting that delays the process up to 13 hours.
Cuisinart Convection Bread Makers are also a great way to make homemade jams and chutneys. The kneading arm keeps the ingredients constantly in motion as the steady source of heat keeps them from burning.
When baking bread, use exact measurements and room temperature ingredients. Deviations from the recipe may negatively affect the bread. First add the liquid ingredients, then the dry ingredients and last, fresh yeast. To add the yeast, create a small divot in the dry ingredients, keeping the yeast away from wet ingredients.
The Cuisinart Convection Bread Makers' instruction manual provides troubleshooting tips should anything go wrong such as a collapsed or underbaked loaf.
