New Bread Machine..Or Me?

My guys picked me up this goodie. Amazon.com: Cuisinart CBK-200 2-Pound Convection Automatic Breadmaker: Kitchen & Dining

Here I'm trying to downgrade the kitchen. They couldn't pass up a good deal. They said I needed another one. My eye! They want more bread! Fancy bread at that.

I tried my TNT recipe that works well with my other bread maker in this model. Just a simple 1Lb loaf.
Picked the correct settings. It did what it should have.. I think. It didn't come with a manual. I have it on a PDF. Read that. Ok, on track so far.

Everything was fine until it went into bake cycle. When I checked on it the whole loaf had deflated like a flat tire. It was so funny. I was shocked. Laughed it off anyways. Looked like a sink hole. let it finish baking.

My other bread maker isn't a convection. So what happened with that loaf? It cooked to a nice med brown crust. Evenly cooked on all sides. What do you call flatness in techie terms. I'm not a baker. All of the ingredients were fresh.

Are Convection bread makers that different from the standard models?
Did I miss a secret tip along the way?

Here's the TNT I usually use.

1C. warm water
2T. sugar
1 package of yeast.

Let it rest until it foams
Then I add the rest of the ingredients and let it go.

1/4 C Vegetable oil
3C AP flour
1Tsp salt

Last night I added the liquids first. Then the rest. Just like the video showed.

They ate it anyways. Said it tasted the same as the other.

Open for suggestions.

Munky.

Sounds to me like it raised too much. It has happened to me without a bread machine. Maybe less yeast or bake it sooner?

Every night Spike sit at my computer. I am going to make sure this bread maker is the first thing he sees. I like Cuisinart products and this is the first bread maker that I have seen that I like and in my price range. Spike doesn't know it, but he is going to get it for me.

Munky, I'd try changing the yeast. If you are not using bread machine yeast, get some. I have that same model and have never had my bread deflate.

Addie, you can buy that same bread machine refurbished for a much lower price. Try Overstock.com

I'm not sure about the too much rise. This model has the option of letting you remove the paddle before the final bake cycle begins.
It has 3 distinct succession beeping tones. 6 beeps. You can't NOT hear it. That's when you push the pause, remove, wait and let it resume. Oh no 666!!!! seriously?

Once you start the machine the only thing you can do is pause it. It won't allow you to start the baking time sooner. You will get the error message beep. The pause is also for adding additional ingredients when they are needed. It will should you miss the beep have the red indicator light come on. Nice feature.

That is the only thing that I can pinpoint that was done differently.
It did after the paddle was removed try and knead the dough again. With what??? It didn't interrupt the rise.

I'm trying it again now the old way. It's too late to decrease the yeast.
That could be the problem to. Now isn't this a fun who dunnit'?

That's a possibility. I used the rapid quick rise yeast. The recipes said you could use either kind. Interesting.

Have Spike check Good will. My guys pick this one up there for $10.00

I'm liking so far how this bread machine doesn't move at all on the counter.
R2D2 the other one rocks around. It should have seat belt wrapped around it. This one is very sturdy. Easy access. Much easier to use. You can add the ingredients and then place the baking pan into the bread maker. R2 didn't have that option.

My Cusinart blender finally died after 20 years just recently. They do have some nice products. The pitcher went. Not the base.

I need to buy some bread machine books. I don't have any.

Just Finished

Whodunnit? Was me.

Just finished making the 2nd loaf. It turned out perfectly. This machine is a definite keeper.

Where I went wrong was not selecting the correct # for the type of yeast I was using. It should have been #2 for a basic 1Lb white loaf. Figures it would be a simple thing. The light crust setting is actually better with this bread maker. It started baking before I even knew it. The machine is very quiet during that cycle. Felt a little cheated that it started without me. It took the smell to get my attention.These guys didn't even wait for it to cool down before tearing into it. That's why we have no pics today.

Now I can sell my Presto canner. Ball can keep the new counter top jam & jelly maker. This gem can do that to. Can't wait to try making pasta in this. $10.00 well spent. They might even be reimbursed for it.
Love Mom!

@Addie
Here's a link. You might want to D/L the manual before you buy.
CBK-200 - 2-lb Convection Bread Maker - Bread Makers - Products - Cuisinart.com

Oh look, it matches the pie maker. I'm just sayin'
Don't want to start any trouble... Well yet anyways.

Munky.

I always thought bread machines were silly. JMHO.

Its that I have never been impressed with bread machines or the bread that comes out of them.
I am not one for gadgets.

How silly do they sound if you have crippling arthritis and am no longer able to do the kneading?
