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.

  • Outside (open): 18” x 14.5” x 10.5” high
  • Outside (closed): 18” x 14.5” x 2.75” high

    • 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.

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.

Great item Review by LadyBug

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.

Like this! Review by jj

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.

Love It! Review by Happy Camper

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.
