Does it really matter why Cecelie would like a bread machine?
She asked the list for help and advice and I at least took the question 
seriously and
answered offlist. In that we don't have the archives available, we just 
can't say go look
in the SCA Cooks Archives and read what we have said in the past. That 
option doesn't exist.

YES I own a bread machine and use one for a variety of reasons.
Mostly it's a matter of time and convenience, but also I keep this house 
between 55 and 60 degrees in the winter
which is cold for bread rising. Also why should I heat the oven up to 
bake a loaf?
Mostly I can bake bread by hand or I can do needlepoint or read. Also 
kneading bread by hand
bothers the hands these days as does the typing. Knead or type is the 
So not making bread by hand also allows me to research, write, and 
attend to various lists and type answers to questions.
Perhaps I should drop the lists and return to making bread by hand; 
would that be
a better use of my time?
