Yes, I'm "another one".  I have been making bread for about 6 years 
now, and I've always either done it by hand or used my KitchenAid.  
That's an aid or tool, but I don't consider it to be a bread machine 
like the ones that mix, knead, time bake, all together.  I'm very big 
on the touchy-feely part of bread-making, so I don't think a bread 
machine will ever be part of my kitchen tools.  Cooking/baking is 
something that I enjoy immensely, and in my kitchen any new tools 
have to be quite versatile and serve many purposes.  A couple of 
tools that I wouldn't be without are my KitchenAid Proline and my Cuisinart 
14-cup.  I also have a Vita-Mix, and these three are the most-used 
countertop tools I have.
