Worthwhile Investment for Home Bread Baker

I love my Brod & Taylor Folding Proofer, I purchased the product a month ago, and can honestly say I am using a couple of times a week it is giving me outstanding results proofing my sourdough bread.
Being able to control the proofing temperature during the sourdough proving process is just wonderful for the home bread baker.. the equipment takes out the guess work in terms of proofing the perfect loaf every time.
Highly recommend this product it is truly worth the investment.

Sourdough at long last!

I've been experimenting with sourdough for over a year now and it has been a frustrating experience because my house temperatures are so variable. This proofer has been a game-changer! It works just as stated, is easy to use and packs away easily back into its box. I haven't tried to use it for anything else yet.

I love my proofer

I live in a cold climate in the winter and it’s been impossible to proof my buns, breads, and rolls other than the in the car in the back yard if there’s sun. It takes forever and I’m so over doing that. This proofer is a game changer… It’s been invaluable in getting my sourdough process to perfection and has helped the quality of all my other bread goodies. A fantastic product and a great time saver. My husband bought me the scale as a birthday present and I love it too.

Superb product.

After a month now of using the proofer at last twice a week, I can say that the product is perfect for its function, namely maintaining a consistent and programmable temperature controlled environment.
The product enables consistent results in proofing bread dough. The ability to accurately control the bulk fermentation has lifted my bread making to a much higher degree of consistency and satisfaction of the finished loaves.

Its elegant transformation from a flat pack to a self contained and heated chamber is well designed and manufactured.
Except to the power cord. Others have mentioned their quibbles with this, and I'll add that having the power cord plug in right next to the control panel as opposed to the rear of the chamber is an oversight. Not having the ability to store the power cord under the chamber; similar to an electric kettle perhaps, is annoying and would solve all issues of storage of the power cord and where the cord connects to the unit.
Perhaps it was a Friday afternoon when designers though of the power cord and were wanting to get home for the weekend!

But, to echo others that have stated, I didn't know I needed this product until I got it!

Love my Brod & Taylor Proofer

Absolute fantastic device in the kitchen. Use if for fermenting purposes, but also great to speed things up (e.g. soften butter). Love the actual use as a bread proofer however as it means I don't need to use glad wrap over the bowl each time! Yet to use it as a slow cooker, but can highly recommend as a proofer to remove the temperature as a variable.

Professional results at home.

Innovative 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.
