Upsides: Breadman TR2500BC includes recipes which are great. You have the option of rest cycles and extended rise as you need it which is great. It has the programmable cycles as well which is also a good feature of this machine.
So far there has been no worry of the bread pan jumping out and your bread comes out perfect every time. You are also able to add fiber which is not very common in gluten free mixes and breads.
Downsides: The Breadman TR2500BC Stainless Steel Convection Breadmaker is a bit loud when in the kneading phase, however, it is not a very long phase at all. The timer setting works fine, but you do end up with the paddle inside the loaf when done. The good thing though is it is extremely nonstick so it is easily removed.
This is not a big deal, but it would be nice to pause the bake cycle so you can remove the paddle before it is cooked in. Other than this, the machine works great.
