The Folding Proofer with degree-by-degree temperature control excels as a yogurt maker. Traditional electric yogurt makers generally have factory pre-set temperatures which can overheat delicate cultures or even burn the milk. Make as much as 2 gallons, or as little as one jar in the Proofer using your own jars. Choose the batch size as well as the type and volume of your containers. Avoid commercial plastic pre-sized disposable containers and also prevent waste by using your own jars.

Our unique “High-Low” temperature method works fast, in just 4 hours and produces food-safe, thick yogurt with creamier texture that has earned wonderful reviews. Use the Proofer temperature control to make Greek-style, goat’s milk, lactose-free, and dairy-free yogurt. The Proofer allows exact control of temperature which is really important for customers trying to make high probiotic content, lactose-free yogurt. Thickness and flavor can be controlled to your preference by length of time and temperature and is repeatable. You can use your own custom recipe with consistent results.

The Folding Proofer remains the only counter-top appliance that folds in seconds for easy storage.
