Took apart a bread maker to see if it would work for a project I have in mind. In short, no; it can't safely hit the temperatures I need. It's still a pretty nice bit of hardware: a nice big heating element, super beefy motor, nice relays, thermocouple, etc. I may use it if I need to cast wax at some point. A fun teardown if nothing else!
