Thanks to everyone who helped convinced me that I not only wanted a D.O., but needed one. I had also asked friends the same question, and as it happens...one of them had a couple of her own, one inherited from her mother and gained another when she got married as he had one. And when they got married? Someone gave them a Kitchen Aid D.O. as a gift. And it was, as it happened, still sitting unwrapped in its dusty box. So I got to barter baking for cooking implement. Yeah me!
