I read so many reviews, on all the brands of bread machines, before I chose this machine. I wanted a breadmaker that was good for gluten free bread as I have a gluten intolerance problem. Although the West Bend does not have a gluten free cycle, it does an excellent job of preparing and baking both Gluten Free Pantry Sandwich bread and also Pamela's Gluten Free Bread mix. I tried following the instructions in the manual, and the bread came out edible, but not the quality I wanted. So, I used the Super Rapid cycle (#4 on the menu, with light crust) on the machine and it comes out perfect every time. I like the double paddles which mixes gluten free ingredients much better than a single paddle, and I'm glad they included the little tool to pull the paddles out of the bread after baking - it works great. I've had no problems with the machine, the paddles, the pan - they have all been excellent to use. I'm very glad to have decided that this was the machine to purchase.
