I think as well one must be careful even with the setting on low ... too high of a heat can kill the yeast. Also don't leave unattended (electrical appliance).
A word of caution using a heating pad. The pad even on low may be too warm for the yeast and kill it prematurely. Using a heavy towel or a cookie rack under the pan will give the bread pan a buffer against the high heat.
This is a great idea. I usually set my bowl of dough on top of the clothes dryer to rise but I'm not always doing laundry when I want to bake bread! I'll certainly try this next time.
