Good for you! I, too found one at a thrift shop and brought it home thinking to experiment with it. At the time that I found it I was working full
time and was only home on weekends. The machine was brand new but the instruction manual was missing so my husband went online and found the manual
which included recipes and printed it up. He was intrigued and a bit bored I suspect---it was his summer vacation---so he decided to try it. He
began with French Bread, using the Dough setting and produced his first two loaves of the most delicious and lovely bread I'd ever seen. The smell
of it baking greeting me on Friday evening when I arrived home. I knew I was in heaven.
That was in 2004 and we haven't bought a loaf of bread since he began. I use it for flatbreads, pizza crust and occasional dark, sweet breads but
always just the Dough setting, then shaped and baked in the oven.
I've also used it to make blackberry jam with amazing success. Peach jam however, turned into peach syrup, still very usable on waffles and ice
