PROS
  • With its 16 pre-set menu options, users can have the exact loaf that they want. Specifically those who are into healthy lifestyle, settings for Low-Carb and Gluten-free is a good point.
  • The warranty that CUISINART offers is longer than most brands.
  • It is also very affordable. One of the most affordable bread makers in the market today.
CONS
  • Though it is made from stainless steel, most of its materials are not the best and the most superior. The inside is made of aluminum and the pan and interior are not non-stick. Hence, they tend to heat up faster and it is not easy to remove the loaf from the pan. The convection fan helps in heat contro but not that much.
  • The unit is also ouder and keeps on beeping especially during kneading cycle. With noise like this, the time delay feature is not that relevant after all – unless if you go out of your house.
  • CUISINART CBK-200 does not have a preheat cycle. Meaning, some ingredients have the warmed up to room temperature before adding to the pan for mixing with the rest of the ingredients.
