Bread Proofer by Brød & Taylor


When I started making bread again I thought since the house temperature in the winter is fairly cool I needed a bread proofer. I must admit turning on my oven at 175 degrees for 2 minutes, turning it off then setting my bread in there did the trick just fine.

proofer3What I found then decided to buy was a Folding Proofer by Brød & Taylor. This is a pretty nifty little gadget. It is a handy fold-out box with electronic temperature control that delivers predictable and accurate low-temperature heat.

I have to admit if it had not been so versatile I would have passed but it is handy for raising bread, making yogurt (kefir in my case), melting chocolate, or crystallized honey, not to mention the making of healthy pro-biotic foods that need accurate and reliable low temperature control.

proofer4This kind of machinery has been available to professionals for years but until recently the home cook has been left to other means like an oven at 175 degrees for 2 minutes and a best guess.


Thanks to Brød & Taylor now complete control, foolproof temperature management, and predictable results can be achieved at home for those who want to invest $148.

Why else was I so taken with this little gadget?
It folds up!
It is a little bigger than my laptop and I can stash it in a cupboard until I need it next. It is actually one of these handy tools that is not more trouble than it is worth.
