like I said in the recipe, I'm not positive what this does do -- I've skipped it before, but the bread doesn't seem to turn out as well. I'm not sure why. I think also that having the flour warm will make it rise faster. Not that the bread will turn out bad -- as I recall the main thing is that it just doesn't seem quite as soft. Of course this could be a total coincidence and warming the flour is nothing but superstition!
If you have glass, check the bottom of the bowl. Some of them say they're oven-safe up to 350 degrees or so -- I think most of my Pyrex is.
