I don't know if this will talk you out of one or into one.
I got my bread maker about 10 years or so ago.  At first I made quite a lot of bread then not so much.  If you use a loaf of bread a week then it might be worth it but if you don't use a lot of bread and are just baking bread because you have the bread maker you can get into "trouble".  So to cut back I might make some on a weekend or a holiday but not every week.
There is a site you might want to check, http://www.kingarthurflour.com  they have quite a few breads as well as some that are "no knead".  The recipes are very good and there are plenty of hints that they will give you.  If you run into any problems they will do a live chat with you.
While you are on their site check out some of the other recipes.  Never tried one that I didn't like.

You might want to check some resale shops for a used bread maker if you want to try one.  Or if you have any outlet stores near you some stores sell "reconditioned" units.
You might also want to try a friends bread maker just to see if you like it and what features you might use.  I loaned a friend my pressure cooker so she could see if it was something she would want. She ended up getting one, so it can help to "test drive" something like that.

Hi Nikki!

It's just hubby and me, now there are weeks where we go through a loaf of bread in 1 week (small) and then there are weeks that a loaf lasts for 1 1/2 weeks.  I just  like a fresh loaf of bread with soups, pasta meals and make specialty breads for the holidays! 

I never gave it a thought to get a reconditioned one...great idea and we have so many outlets around me, so that is another good idea.  Thanks for all your help...much appreciated! ;')

Thank you for the recipe.  I will have to try it.  I received a kit with the dish to bake it and the ingredient.  You just have to provide your own beer. I'll have to make that and then try your recipe from scratch.  Sounds real good.

My younger son makes chili and puts beer in it.  In fact when he was here for Christmas, he made chili in our crockpot and froze it for several suppers for my husband and I.  It was deliciouos!!!
