Resting temperature

I have been working on an erroneous assumption. I’ve always assumed that while resting, the breadmaker maintained a cosy 30℃ temperature. Furthermore, I also assumed that when on a timer, it set the machine to 30℃ before the program itself even started.

Just to check, I checked. And I’m wrong on both counts. This means that when I put the machine on overnight on the timer, the dough sits at room temperature all night, and even during the rest period when the program starts for real. For some reason I had it in my head that the machine ‘settled’ the ingredients by maintaining some ambient temperature. I also assumed that this was 30℃.
