heat mats

I have used heat mats for some years with great success the ones used for seed germination.

The mixing bowl and final proving in cloche stand on the mat with a constant temp.

So my question is " Does anyone else use this method" ?

I know that Dabrownman uses a heating pad when things move too slowly for him.

I placed it inside of a cooler.  Placed a dish towel on the bottom and the top.  Placed bowl (it is panettone) inside and shut lid. I think this is more efficient than using my oven.  That's a great thing.
