Question about Cuisinart CBK-200 Bread Maker

9 Answers

Can't remove the bread pan

We bought a Cuisinart 400C breadmaker, and after the first loaf, couldn't remove the bread pan from its seating. We exchanged it for a new machine. You guessed it... after the second loaf, the bread pan is fixed onto its seating in the "oven compartment" and we can't get it out.

What can we do??

many thanks...

    Me too - it came out easily before we began using it, and after the first loaf, it's stuck...

    We also have the problem. We've made 7 loaves, 6 turned out well but the 4th one burned. Now the basket just won't come out.
    After seeing that we are not alone with this problem and no solution has been offered ,we are returning it and trying another make.

The same thing happened to me yesterday. I made my first loaf and then I couldn't get the bread pan out. We kept pulling and yanking on the bread pan until it felt like it was going to break! This morning, my husband called Cuisinart. The man on the phone said he has the same machine at home, and that you just have to pull it really hard. He said don't worry, it won't break, just pull it. My husband pulled it again and it came out. I guess he just got the right angle on it.

It was definitely stuck from the bottom, not from the side clamp things. The man on the phone at Cuisinart said that after you use it more, it becomes easier to remove the bread pan. We put the bread pan in and then pulled it out a few times, and it seems like now it comes out easily, the way it should.

I felt obliged to respond here, because I was very discouraged after reading this thread last night. I was about to return the machine. I hope this solution helps.

By the way, my first loaf yesterday was the Rosemary Bread from the cookbook that comes with the machine. It was AMAZING.

It's easy for me. You need to turn the pan "countercolockwise" first before pulling it out.

I had the same problem. After reading the solution above that said to pull really hard and not be afraid of breaking it, it came out. The only thing I would add is to put the machine on the floor so you get the proper leverage and wear oven mitts so you can reach in and pull from opposite corners.

After much twisting, rocking and pulling on the pan, I was able to free the stuck pan. The socket for the pan in the machine has two slots cut in the sides. The bottom of the pan has two protrusions, which fit into the slots in the machine. I made sure the paddle screw was aligned with the protrusions and then just popped the pan in easily into the machine, and it came out with no effort other than lifting on the handle. I showed my wife how it all was meant to line up, which was a surprise to her. She had just been pushing the pan in without realizing there was anything to be aligned. In fact, I can see marking where the pan had gone in improperly. I read the Cuisinart manual and there is no mention of this where placing the pan into the machine is mentioned. One simple sentence could have explained this and avoided the stuck pan problem that so many people have encountered.

We just finished making our first loaf of bread and we're running into the same problem! We found that if you twist and pull from opposite corners it comes out pretty easily. Hope this helps someone!

Rotate the pan "counterclockwise" and it unlocks it and lifts out.

the instructions say to "turn it left"... NO.. not left, you freaking instruction book writer!!! COUNTERCLOCKWISE!!!!

To un-stick the bread pan, I put mine on the floor and pulled from the corners of the bucket up at an angle, not straight up from the handle. When it popped out, it looked like some rust had been gluing the bucket to the bottom. It does not appear to have damaged it, though. I was pulling so hard on the handle I thought it would bend/break, so I pulled from the corner instead and it came out.

After 2 months of use we had the same problem. Cuisnart Customer service was of no help at all. They wanted us to pay the shipping costs to repair their product which is still under warranty. Any other company we have dealt with has always stood by their warranty. Poor customer service. We eventually managed to get the pan out. First we were able to get the pan free from both clips at the side and then pulled forward on the pan. This wasn't working so we tried pushing it back while pulling on it and it popped out. Maybe this helps.

My Cuisinart CBK-200 Breadmaker won't start?


Why did you unplug it? Try resetting at another recipe and see if this helps.

Recipes for b&d breadmaker model 2300


Knowing your breadmaker's loaf capacity will enable you to find recipes of any variety on the Internet for free.


It will also keep you from adding too much ingredients which could cause dough to over-rise and spill onto the heating element.


Remove your bread pan from your breadmaker. Using a one-cup 8-fluid-ounce liquid measure, fill your bread pan with water. As you do, count the number of cups it takes to fill your bread pan to the very rim.


Generally speaking...


If your bread pan holds 7 & 10 cups to the rim then you have a 1.0 lb or 500 g loaf pan


10 & 11 cups to fill = 1.5 lb (700 g) loaf pan

11 & 13 cups to fill = 2.0 lb (900 g) loaf pan

13 & 15 cups to fill = 2.5 lb (1250 g) loaf pan

15 & 17 cups to fill = 3.0 lb (1350 g) loaf pan


Generally speaking...


A bread recipe for use in a 1.0 lb (500 g) breadmaker should never exceed 2-1/4 total cups of flour.


1.5 lb (700 g) = 3-1/4 c

2.0 lb (900 g) = 4-1/4 c

2.5 lb (1250 g) = 5-1/4 c

3.0 lb (1300 g) = 6-1/4 c


Warning: When testing a new bread recipe it is always best that you not leave your breadmaker unattended. Stay close by to monitor its progress from time to time.

Bought a used toastmaster bread maker model 1196. what size loaf does it make. is the dough paddle removable ? also need a manual siurce


Bread pan Capacities


Here is how you determine the size of loaf you can bake in your machine. You need to determine the capacity of your pan. Fill your pan with water and measure the cups added so you know how many cups of water are in the pan when it is full to the very top. Here are the conversions:


1)If your pan holds less than 10 cups of water you can make: a 1 pound loaf


2)If your pan holds 10 cups of water you can make: a 1 pound loaf and a 1.5 pound loaf


3)If your pan holds 12 cups you can make: a 1 pound, 1.5 pound, and a 2.0 pound loaf

____________________________________________________________________


This is rare, but if you pan holds 14 cups or more you can make all the above plus a 2.5 pound loaf


The dough paddle is removable and should be removed shortly after baking by soaking in 3-4 inches of warm soapy water. If your paddle is stuck let me know. I don

Crust is thick and hard, paddles tear large chunk from bottom of loaf when removed from pan.


unfortunately all bread machines leave the hole in the bottom where the paddle is. some machines leave a bigger hole than others, with the exception of the cuisinart cbk-200 which allows you to remove the dough, then remove the paddle, then reshape and replace the dough....One thing you can try to have a softer, lighter crust is to replace the water in your recipe with the same amount of milk. If the hole in the big hole in the loaf really bothers you I suppose you could remove the dough exactly at the end of the final knead, remove the paddle and replace the dough in the pan...I've never done it but I've certainly considered it! best wishes and happy breadmaking...

We have a bkr-400c.purchased at Costco in Medicine Hat AB about 1 month ago. We made a loaf of bread and took it out. Turned power off and then made another loaf. Tried to turn it back on without success....


There is no fuse, but there is a feature that will reset after a power loss. This feature lasts for 15 min. Wait longer to see if it works. If not, take it back to Costco for a refund.

Top of bread loaf falls


Use Fleischman's Active Dry Yeast, and not any other kind of yeast - make sure you follow the recipe guide to the letter, or your results may not turn out right. Also, never pre-mix the ingredients before putting them in the Cuisinart - let the breadmaker do the mixing for you.
