The Folding Proofer offers home cooks the benefits of a commercial kitchen tool - accurate temperature and predictable results - in an elegant appliance that folds for storage.
The temperature and humidity control is perfect for rising and fermenting yeast bread dough or sourdough. In slow cooker mode, enjoy delicious one-pot meals using your own favorite Dutch oven or pot. Great for making yogurt, sous vide, tempering chocolate, and a wide variety of probiotic superfoods including soft cheeses, cultured butter, kombucha, tempeh, and kefir.
We have used as a prover and a warming drawer and for both uses, it has worked as described! We have been impressed with this purchase so far, especially considering the price of other proving drawers.
Absolutely the most used and appreciated item in my kitchen!! I have only used it to proof dough but wonder how I lived without it. Easy to set up, use, and clean. Takes up minimal storage space and does a great job. Buy this!
I was hesitant, I really didn't want one more gadget to clutter my apartment. But the proofer has been a godsend. No more shifting the various stages of my sourdough rye from room to room depending on the season. The spot-on temperature control give me accurate, consistent results from start to finish. And the small footprint when stored is brilliant.
A great yogurt maker as well.
We keep our house in the low 60’s in the winter so this has been a life saver to keep us going on producing our favorite sourdough bread throughout the season.
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.
