Need a good vacation timer. Any suggestions?

Copy following link to see analog vacation timers that turn lights on at random times.
Set current time slightly different so lights inside house can turn on-off at slightly different schedules.
Rotate dial to set current time, plug timer into outlet, make sure bulb is good, turn light ON, and plug light into timer.
Multi-function digital timers, such as Woods 59377, and lifetime-warranty Intermatic DT620 also have vacation feature, and timers have 2 outlets, but programming is more complicated than using analog timer.

If you need further help, I’m available over the phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/gene_9f0ef4df2f9897e7


Would like to know how to set machine to start at a later time

Since you haven't listed the model or make of the bread machine, there is a simple solution for this problem that will work or any make or model bread machine.
Using an "outlet timer" or sometimes known as "appliance timer" you can set your bread machine to receive power at a particular time in the day and you can even set it to turn off at a specified time too!
eliteandres.jpeg Above is a picture of what one of these devices looks like. These can be found at home improvement stores or online.
Step one: Plug the outlet timer into the wall Step two: Plug the Breach Machine into the outlet timer, and leave it in the "on" position. Step three: Set the timer to turn on at the specified time.
The bread machine will receive power at whatever time you set the timer to turn on and since its in the "on" position it will automatically start making the bread.
