Now that's a very good point. That really has me wondering why the twenty minute limit.....
The last couple of loaves I tried to pry it loose after just 4-5 minutes and it came loose just fine. I was trying so soak it as little as possible. Just the inside of the pan.
I don't use the delay cycle (and have no common sense) so that never occurred to me. It almost has me making a phone call to them to ask them why.

Give us this day our daily bacon.

Yeah $40 for my old breadman and wouldn't you know-it died a couple months later and I couldn't find the same model. The current model at the time had a different pan. I wasn't really careful with that old machine about getting water on the outside of the pan. I didn't soak the entire pan (just put water in it) but I didn't worry about drying it thoroughly when it did get wet. I'm a little more careful now.
