Am I the only one intimidated by a bread machine? I think they are a wonderful idea (put stuff in and have bread come out). But, we can't seem to find the instruction book, and when I plugged it in and it started beeping, I immediately unplugged it and switched to a new project. It is interesting because I don't think of myself as a techno-phobe. And, in general, I like to just try buttons to make things happen. But, this contraption without a manual is a bit overwhelming.
From a brief search on the internet, I learn two things 1) it is very common to lose manuals, and 2) I am not alone in my feelings. :)
