Quick & Easy Butter Softening
Ever find yourself in need of softened butter faster than the time it takes to reach room temperature? Your proofer provides a gentle, low temperature warming to speed the process. By setting the proofer to 85F, you won’t risk melting the butter, which can render it unsuitable for many cake and cookie recipes.
Dinner Plate Warmer
Serving hot food on warm plates is an honored culinary tradition that preserves flavor accents as well as appearance. Set your proofer to 120ºF (49ºC) and warm your plates without investing in another single-use appliance to store in your kitchen.
Electric Snack Crisper
Your proofer can work overtime as a cracker, chip and cookie crisper – replacing the need for another dedicated appliance. Just set the temperature to 90ºF (32ºC) and your low wattage proofer will create a warm, dry environment to help your crisp items stay that way longer, even in high humidity.
The temperature control in your Folding Proofer is optimized for use in a 65F (18C) environment. If your kitchen is much colder, you may consider raising the temperature set point slightly for best results.
Humidity and Warm-Up Time
To speed warm-up time you may use hot water to fill the water tray. This will also raise the humidity inside the proofer more quickly.
Always Use the Rack
Always place food in containers or pans on the wire rack. Never put food directly on the heating plate. The heating plate may be hotter than the temperature set point and overheating of the food may occur.
