Trustworthy So Far

Accurate to within 2°, I am really enjoying this proofer. It seems to be very reliable and allows me to relax knowing that the temperature is stable.

What a change

I have only had my proofer about 48 hours and already making a difference. The consistent even heat did a great number on my sourdough levain. I am a happy SD baker

Jerome R.
Two small improvements

It's great. I've used it for proofing only, no slow cook so far.

Two suggested improvements: 1) Figure out a design where the electric cord can be stored with the unit, instead of separately; and 2) add a fold-in handle so it can be carried like a briefcase. Please send me a complimentary prototype when completed.

Happy Wife

It was s gift to my wife. She loves to bake but was having trouble getting the proofing correct. Me being me decided to give her what she needed without asking.

Folding Design

Big enough to fit a large mixing bowl, several hand-shaped loaves, 2 gallons of yogurt, or your favorite 8 quart pot, yet easily folds flat (with rack and water tray stowed inside) for convenient and compact storage in a kitchen drawer.

One Appliance. Endless Uses.

A true multi-tasker, the proofing box can be used to keep your sourdough starter strong, your bread dough warm and rising, and your kombucha brewing. It can become a homemade yogurt machine or turn your favorite pot into your favorite slow cooker. One appliance. Endless uses.

Thankfully, the Brød and Taylor Folding Proofer & Slow Cooker is here to ensure your dough (or sourdough starter) is always kept at the right temperature. After using mine for years, it's hard to imagine baking without it."

The Bread Bible

“The Brod & Taylor SAHARA Folding Dehydrator and the Folding Proofer and Slow Cooker are essential to what I do. I’ve used these tools nearly every day since I got them. If you’re at all interested in doing bread, fermentation, dehydrating, or just about anything interesting in your cooking, then you need to have these in your kitchen.”
