Although we leave in a world with complex electronic devices, the simple gadgets provide the best solutions. Great video!

Thanks, Bernard. I still think the delayed timer for the crockpot is a nifty idea.

I sort of remember seeing somthing like this, but we could not find it in today's market place.  Do you recall what brand it is?

We shopped extensively to find a pot that could be programed to delay the start.  All we found were one that could time the run.  What brand do you have that will do this?  

The other option you offer was discussed but again my customer did not want it.

Ann, Their is nothing that can be done to the device but you may be able to modify the bread maker.  I don't know much about them.

I proposed that but in the end built what my customer wanted.  I may make such a device for myself time permitting.

I hope the timer could be converted to run a bread machine, Rob. GTOlover's comment sounds like that's true.
