To buy or not to buy... a bread machine.

sequins | Sep 23, 200610:14 PM     78

I'd like to start making bread. A neighbor of mine is all excited about her bread machine, although what I've sampled of its output hasn't been impressive. Still, maybe good recipes well followed will turn out better in a bread machine than by hand? There are like-new used breadmakers out there that are pretty cheap, so price isn't a prohibitive factor for me. But, since I wouldn't want to make more than two loaves a month, time isn't enough of a persuasive factor, either. So, apart from the convenience, are there compelling reasons for me to get one of these things? Thanks!
