Details

The Brod & Taylor Folding Proofer is a convenient fold-out box with electronic temperature control that delivers predictable and accurate low-temperature heat. It offers home cooks something they’ve never had before:

  • Complete control
  • Foolproof temperature management
  • Predictable results

 

The success of the product lies in its careful design. It’s a convenient fold-out box that delivers predictable and accurate low-temperature heat — essential for bread-rising, yogurt-making, and making products like sauerkraut, kefir, fermented pickles, and other probiotics.

  • Radiant heat is generated by the aluminum base plate. 
  • Digital controls provide temperature settings from 70-120ºF (21 – 49C). 
  • Optionally, humidity may be increased by using the included water tray.
  • Calibrated to maintain the temperature of its contents at the set point, not just the air inside; measuring internal air temperature may result in inconsistent readings.

 

Dimensions:

  • Inside (open):14.75” x 12.5” x 8” high
  • Outside (open): 18” x 14.5” x 10.5” high
  • Outside (closed): 18” x 14.5” x 2.75” high
  • Weight: 7.5 lbs


Features:

  • Anodized aluminum heating plate.
  • Stainless steel wire rack.
  • Aluminum water tray (typical humidity 60-80%).
  • Reinforced polypropylene body; clear window.
  • All removable parts are dishwasher safe.
  • All parts store inside Proofer when folded.

    • Does this machine make much noise when it is in use, like a dehydrator (all of which are very loud)? Or is it quiet?

      Thank you.
    • The machine makes no noise at all, it quietly maintains the selected temperature between 70° and 120°.

    • Hi, my questions are about the folding proofer. 1. What Warranty (if any) do you or the manufacturer offer? 2. Could you please explain what the following means: The Folding Proofer is "[c]alibrated to maintain the temperature of its contents at the set point, not just the air inside; measuring internal air temperature may result in inconsistent readings." This seems to suggest that there is a temperature probe or sensor that can be inserted into the yogurt? But I don't see anything in the description of parts that suggests this. Lastly, has the manufacturer published a temperature range (+/-) meaning Temp. +/- 2 degrees F etc. Kudos on Julie's video - yogurt making - it was excellent. Many thanks.
    • We do not warranty the product, but if you find it defective upon arrival we will replace it. You will have to contact the manufacturer for their specific warranty information. However, we have yet to have any issues with the folding proofer.

      As for the maintenance of temperature, the food contents placed in the unit will maintain the temperature as set by the control. There is no probe or thermometer included, but most customers use their own thermometers to check the temperature of the food to ensure it is culturing at the right temperature.

      The manufacturer states the temperature can be set from 70º - 120ºF. We have no further information on this.

      If you need more clarification, you may want to contact their company.

    • What if the temperature in the room is too high, will this machine maintain a cooler temperature (like 75)?
    • The Folding Proofer has a heating element that maintains a temperature between 70° and 120°. The Folding Proofer does not cool and will not be able to hold a temperature lower than room temperature.

  • From Michiko Sato at 10/6/2014 1:07 AM
    • I have a comment. It's too bad that this machine's temperature goes up to only 120F (49C), since I have been looking for a machine to incubate amazake from rice koji. That requires 120-140F (50-60C) to do the work.
    • Thank you for your feedback. The unit was designed for sourdough but it works beautifully for anything that requires a consistent temperature between 70° and 120°. A dehydrator would work well for maintaining higher temperatures.

  • From Jeanne at 5/15/2014 11:11 AM
    • Will 2 wide mouth quart canning jars fit inside?
    • Yes, you can place up to 9 standard or wide mouth 1 quart canning jars in the Folding Proofer.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Laure at 5/14/2014 6:43 PM
    • Could you tell me please if your Folding Proofer has an international power supply ?..

      Thank you.
    • The folding proofer has a standard US power supply and the electrical ratings are 120V, 60hHZ, and 200 watts.

Great Tempeh Incubator Review by Rick
Value
Quality
Price

The Brod and Taylor bread proofer is a great product, a little pricey, but it works perfectly for the task I got it for. I don’t use it for any of the suggested uses. Sauerkraut, pickles, and kefir I ferment at room temperature. For yogurt we use the non electric Yogotherm. I have used the Brod & Taylor for bread, but usually don’t bother. The reason I got it, and use it most for, is to make tempeh. I set the thermostat at 90 or 92 degrees for the first hour I then lower the temperature setting to 88 degrees and leave it alone. Towards the end of the process I gradually lower the heat (and eventually turn it off), as the tempeh starts to generate its own heat. Before I got the bread proofer I had been using my dehydrator to make tempeh, which worked, but required a lot more attention and monitoring to keep the temperature steady. At the moment I am using it make fermented tofu but, for me, it is really a tempeh incubator.

Very Handy Review by Jaz

I love that this proofer folds up and stows away easily--very important in my tiny kitchen. Very easy to set up --I've only proofed bread so far and will move my kefir to it to see who that works. I would definitely recommend to my friends and family.

This little oven is perfect for making vegan dishes. Kefer loves begin made in it. I like then fact that i can cook at such low temperatures. That means I am getting as much nutritional benifit as posible.

I bought this about 2 yrs ago for culturing my yogurt. I can put any size cup, bowl or other container in it ti do the yogurt. It keeps the temp constant and my yogurt has always turned out well after using this proofer.
I have also used it for thawing meats when I have forgotten to plan ahead. Two or 3 hours will thaw a pound of gr beef so dinner won't be late.

When i am not using it I can fold it up and store it in a small slot. Very convient feature that I also like.

I would buy it again and if I get to the point of being able to make bread again my proofer will be ready.

This is a little pricey, but I'm very pleased with how well it works. I also like how it can be folded to take up very little space.

Love this folding proofer Review by Linda

I bought a Thermocult yogurt incubator in 1970. I used it almost every week until May 2013, when it literally fritzed out! I mourned its loss, like a beloved family pet. I spent several months looking for a suitable replacement. I could culture one gallon of yogurt in my Thermocult, which most yogurt incubators were incapable of. I finally purchased Brod & Taylor's folding proofer. I fell in love with it the first time I used it. Not only does it work splendidly for my yogurt, but I can proof all kinds of breads in it. The temperature stays consistent, no hot spots. When I'm done, it folds up and stores easily on a shelf. I'm a very happy user and recommend it to yogurt makers and bread bakers.
