Re: 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).

How do i override the delay start function

According to page four of the manual linked below, you can simply hit START after selecting 1. Menu item, 2. Crust colour, 3. Loaf size, 4. Mix-ins, 5. START or Delay Start Timer.

If the bread machine is running, and you wish to overide the Delay Start Timer, NOTE down the other options selected for Bread Type, Crust Colour, Loaf Size and Mix-ins; then press and HOLD the STOP/PAUSE key for 3+ seconds to re-initiate the breadmaking process. Re-enter the options, and re-start the breadmaker using no Delay Start Timer (Hit START in step 5.) or enter a new Delay Start time and then hit start

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!

Our bread maker doesn't heat at all, it will make the bread then just turns off. We've had it for about a year, we've made 10 loafs, maybe. Those were some expensive loafs of bread :( Any...

Contact for a service center near you.

Otherwise, try to reboot your breadmaker's computer by plugging it in then pressing and holding the Stop/Pause button down for at least 3 seconds.

Hope this helped. ;)

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...

My crust keeps burning

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...
