Question about Cuisinart CBK-200 Bread Maker

My crust keeps burning

I made my first loaf and it came out beautifully. Since then I put the crust setting on light and I still am having problems with the crust burning. I follow the recipe directions in the book and continue to have this problem. I have tried adjusting the water since I have started adding flaxseed and wheat germ, but nothing has worked. Any advice?

It seems like the strength of the heat/oven varies a lot from a machine to another... Mine works great with most recipes, but my parents' burns the crust everytime. The only adivce I can give you is to check on the baking process and stop your machine when the bread has a golden crust. It doesn't solve the problem, but at least you get your bread...

How to choose a light crust for a loaf


It.s not so much the baking it's the length of time it takes. Your recipie may need modifying. Try a different recipe or use the dough setting and make your own bread that way.

Kneading paddle gets stuck in loaf after baking and is hard to remove


Hi, it is common for this to happen with bread machines. It often helps if you have a modern machine and you can choose the crust color and you choose Light Crust. The other thing you can do is if you are using recipes that use water in the liquid phase use milk instead. If you paddle still sticks then you just need to turn the loaf on its side and use a popsicle stick, tooth pick etc and trace around the loaf where the paddle is and dig it out.

My panasonic SD 255 breadmaker, after quite a lot of use, is now baking bread with a harder crust than it did in its youth. We can get a softer crust by using the Sandwich loaf setting but then we can...


You never said if you remembered to select the LIGHT Crust setting each time. Did you? Are you? If you ARE using the LIGHT Crust setting and finished loaves are still too dark, I would have to say it's time for a replacement breadmaker. Nothing lasts forever my friend. Besides, it sounds like you got your money's worth anyway, right?

I've owned over 200 breadmaker myself so you can bet that what I'm saying is true. Sorry for the bad news friend.

Hope this helps!

I set the menu for whole wheat bread, however, recipe states whole wheat bread rapid. I've tried to unplug (before it has done anything) and reset, but it will not let me. It just goes back to the prior...


push the stop button until your machine beeps, then unplug it and plug it back in. push select and push it again and again and you will get more confident as you see it go through the choices such as basic, whole wheat, french etc...... you will get more confident about how to choose. Once you feel you have the right program leave it there and then choose things such as the crust color you want and the LOAF SIZE once you feel you have the right settings say....whole wheat, light crust, 1.5 pound loaf.......then....push start and the fun will begin....

The bread is too dry


Welcome to FixYa, if you appreciate our solution, please rate our services.

Breadmakers usually don't have as many crust settings as this one does. Darker crust settings usually equate to dryer bread because the bread bakes longer. The longer the bread bakes, the more moisture is removed. Accordingly, if you've tried this many recipes with dry texture, try progressively lighter crust settings until you get the moisture you desire. As for me, I rarely bake my bread in the machine (I don't like the hole in the bottom of the loaf). I do, however, appreciate the dough setting which does all the hard work, and I just bake it in the pan. I think the results are better and I get a better shaped loaf.

If this information has been helpful, don't forget to give me an appropriate rating. Thanks again and good baking!

I had the same problem and what you need to do is hold the start button down for 3 seconds and that will clear the default setting (1 3:30). Then select the settings you need starting with the program setting for your recipe (i.e. #4 for sandwich bread). Bear in mind that you may not be able to select your crust light/dark option for some recipes, but will be able to select the loaf size. I assume this is because the recipe program (i.e. #4 for sandwich loaf) is already prescribed in the setting. When you have all of your selections then press your start button, but don't hold it down for longer than a second because it will clear everything and you will have to start again from step 1. Good luck!

Baking gluten free bread in model 5890


good day,
hope this link below will solve your problem.

Set your bread machine program for 1.5 loaf medium crust. I used the gluten-free cycle on the Breadman; if you don't have a gluten-free cycle, I believe a rapid rise cycle will also work.

Check the dough after a few minutes of kneading- it should be closer to a muffin batter than bread dough, soft but not too wet. Adjust dry to wet ratio with a tablespoon of flour or warm liquid, as needed. Humidity influences the dough. As does temperature (your bread will rise higher on a hot day).

If you like a crusty loaf, remove the bread from the pan and place it in the oven at 350 degrees F for an additional 10 minutes- keep an eye on it and don't let it get too brown. It should be a light golden color.

Cool the loaf before slicing for best results.

Enjoy fresh from the oven- the first day (as with most gluten-free baked goods) has the best texture and taste

1st time w/ Cuisinart bread maker


There's a little arrow in the LCD screen that changes from 1, 1.5, and 2 lbs when you press loaf. There is also one for light, medium, and dark crust. Each time you press either button, the arrow will change which setting it's pointing to.

If you're using it in an area with low lighting, try using a flashlight (I have to do that on mine).
