I received the proofer from my husband for my birthday in February. He probably got tired of me climbing around the cupboards with a thermometer always looking for a warm draft-free spot to raise bread. I never imagined what a joy it would be to use this proofer. It is easy to use and I’ve had nothing but success since I started using it!
This extra shelf gives me so much more capacity for my amazing brod&taylor proofing oven
LOVE, LOVE , LOVE, THIS UNIT. MAKES MAKING BREAD, INCLUDING SOUR DOUGH BREADS AND YOGURT A PURE PLEASURE. I HAVE OWNED MINE FOR TWO YEARS NOW AND IT HAS BECOME ONE OF MY FAVORITE KITCHEN APPLIANCES I OWN, AND I HAVE MANY. I HAVE ALSO USED IT TO TEMPER CHOCOLATE BUT HAVE NOT USED IT AS A SLOW COOKER OR for ANY OF ITS OTHER USES. WELL WORTH THE PURCHASE!
Works nicely with the proofer allowing one to proof to breads in their separate baskets at the same time. We keep our house cool so the proofer has greatly improved the consistency of my bread making.
If you are serious about Bread Baking and want to really do it well, you must have this proofer!
Allows me to proof more bread!
Perfect proofing equipment for the home baker in cold New England
Hi! Can I just ask something? It’s been quite warm nowadays here in manila. Been using the proofing box at 26C setting and noticed that the dough seems to puff up quite quickly. Checked the interior and found it to be higher at 29C, akmost same as the ambient temp. How come?
Have been using the proofer to aid my bread making. We keep our house cool and the ability to have a controlled temperature chamber improves the fermentation and proofing steps and makes everything more consistent.
I bought the Brod & Taylor Proofer and Slow Cooker to grow koji spores for cooking and it’s the best I have ever used. The temperature stays very even and it has a broad array of temperature settings. Its perfect for proofing bread and I love the slow cooker. I can use my own pot and just cook a meal all day using the slow cooker setting. The whole thing folds up and doesn’t take much room to store too. I love it!
I have turned out some of my best loaves using this product. Hands down, not having to mess with oven temps and cycling hot water in and out of conventional ovens has been a huge time saver, and the results really show in the quality of my bakes!
Easy packing for all your dehydrator goodies.
Very easy to use and very useful.
If you are looking to bring your bread baking up a notch, this is what you want. By precisely controlling the environment during primary fermentation and then again during proofing one can tinker with recipes to get exactly the results you wish. If, in the winter, you have a cold, drafty house—this is a godsend. It folds up nicely so that it can be stored in a smaller space (I keep mine in the small, otherwise useless space between the top of my refrigerator and the bottom of the cupboard above). When expanded it is large enough for my needs (including taking my largest Dutch oven without a problem). I can't recommend it enough!
Was not able to proof bread properly in the winter until now.
