Brod & Taylor Bread Proofer - Folds-up for easy storage!
Bring professional bread baking to your kitchen! What is bread proofing (proving)? It's when the yeast is activated and begins to feed on the flour (fermentation) which releases carbon dioxide bubbles (rise); proofing also produces alcohol and acids, which contribute to the bread's flavor. Professional bakers require the ability to control the temperature during the fermentation and rise process in order to create the best flavors in their loaves of bread. Now home bakers can enjoy the same reliability with a countertop proofer that also folds flat for easy storage. Whether you’re baking sourdough, gluten free, whole grain or traditional bread recipes – your kitchen can now perform to professional standards.
Not just a bread proofer! It also makes exquisite yogurt and keeps chocolate at a temperature that is ideal for melting or use after "tempering". And its ability to maintain very low temperatures makes it useful for warming eggs for a génoise batter.
Folds-up for easy storage! The proofer folds flat to under 3 inches for convenient storage and pops up quickly to accommodate a large dough rising container, a large free-form hearth loaf, or two bread pans as long as 14 inches.
Easy to read temperature settings: The read out is easily switched between Fahrenheit and Centigrade, and has a of 70˚ to 120˚F or 21˚ to 49˚C.

Gordon Rader (Chef, Collegiate Lead Culinary Instructor) "My kitchen was a little on the cool side this morning but didn’t seem to affect the proofer system. Quite nice. Couldn’t find anything amiss and this is exactly what I was looking for when I began my search for this type of product—sleek and elegant as well as utilitarian for the kitchen. GREAT WORK! THANKS!!!"
