Looks great and makes great bread”
by Mr Wightman
After reading lots of reviews on bread makers which covered the main brands like Panasonic, I decided to buy the Cuisinart bread maker. There weren't many reviews for this machine as it isn't sold in many places. We have several Cuisinart machines and they are all superbly made. I have to say that this bread maker looks great and is really well made. The bread is lovely and very easy to make. We especially like the French bread and it is great to wake up to the smell of fresh bread on a Sunday morning. The only downside is that our children want fresh bread every day now for the school lunch.

I am on my second machine and the same problem is happening as with the first one, which was replaced by Lakeland. The pan has a habit of leaking liquid down into the mechanism and the blade of getting stuck on. This may be why the loaves come out really odd especially when using the delay function. I thought I would be safe with a Cuisinart because of the name and reputation- and of course the price. I got a free mini chopper with my first machine but that has also gone kaput and won't chop any more. Maybe I'm just unlucky with appliances. I always seem to get faulty ones.

Excellant Wheat Free Bread”
After trying another make of bread maker and being very disappointed, I gave the Cuisinart bread maker a go, I'm so pleased I did. It looks like bread and tastes great to. The recipe book is very good as it gives you step by step instructions unlike the previous make I tried. I would also like to thank the staff at Lakeland for being very helpful.

first class bread maker!”
I have used other bread makers in the past given to me secondhand by my grandparents and have previously bought a kenwood. I wouldn't say I am a really keen baker so never bought it was worth spending a lot of money on a bread maker but that's clearly where I went wrong! This machine is a doddle to use and makes everyday baking a pleasure to do, if you weren't a keen baker before you got this you certainly will be once you have!! It makes far more than just ordinary bread and gives great results including a delicious freshly baked waft to the whole house!!

Bought this machine maninly due to its looks!! I have to say though I am so impressed with it. So easy to use, just pop ingredients in and come back 3 hours later to a perfect loaf! Its lovely using the delay timer and waking up to the smell of fresh baked bread :O)

Panasonic V Cuisinart”
by Collette Hughes
With any bread maker after years of use the pan will lose its non-stick. Unable to get another replacement pan for now defunct Prima I had to choose a new model. Torn between Panasonic and Cuisinart, I checked out prices of a replacement pan for both: Panasonic £67 Cuisinart £15. That and Cuisinart 5 year warranty swung it. The bread maker looks the part and oozes quality. The machine is quiet in use. The bread is cooked to a lovely even colour all over. The paddle is held in the machine and comes out cleanly from the loaf. I highly recommend this bread maker.

Fantastic Machine - Thoroughly recommend it”
by Miss Sheldrake
My mum bought this for me and I really expected the first loaf would be less than perfect. Wow... I was totally wrong, this is an amazing machine. The first loaf was brilliant, soft on the inside and a great crispy crust. Since that first day, I've tried multi grain, French, gluten free and all came out perfectly. Also tried the chocolate cake and gingerbread cake. They were quick and easy without the hassle of baking tins and Pre-heating the oven etc. My favourite so far has been the homemade pizza and focaccia with the best deep crust ever. Partners my Cuisinart soup maker perfectly - 5 star

Nice looking machine, disappointing bread!”
My trusty old Belling breadmaker needed a new pan, which was impossible to get, and as I use it every day I thought I'd treat myself to new machine. Did some research, and the Panasonic came out tops, but the Cuisinart had some good reviews, (I chose to ignore the bad reviews, as it looks so fab in the stainless steel) Basically, I have returned the machine to Lakeland TWICE - 1st time I assumed it was faulty, not ONE decent loaf, and I tried many recipes/ different batches of good quality flour/ fresh yeast. Lakeland customer service is Excellent, exchanged again today for the Panasonic!

Well worth the money”
by Jeni Mason
I bought this as a replacement for my bread machine used for the past 8 years. My first couple of loaves were OK but not fantastic -but now it is regularly turning out really good loaves overnight every 2 days. The reason for my first couple of failures - I didn't follow the recipes in the book but tried to adapt one of my old favourites and didn't take account that a fan oven cooks slightly differently. I've now got that sorted. The programs and recipe book supplied are very comprehensive but if you want to do your own thing completely, then you can set your own program and timings.

Trumps for Gluten Free bread”
by Mrs Gallant
I have purchased several Cuisinart appliances, all of which are brilliant and this is no exception. I have had a breadmaker before which was no where near the standard of this one. It makes very good Gluten Free bread and with no effort needed. Just measure ingredients, programme and wait.

I bought this machine as it's top of the range. I usually make my bread by hand, but thought I would like a machine. I find breadmixes work great, but for some reason not from recipes. No fear, I will crack it yet. The machine is great apart from this, but it's me not the machine at fault. I would recommend one to anyone, well worth the price.
