The Brød & Taylor Folding Proofer makes wholesome, made-from-scratch baking easier than ever with an optimum proofing environment plus easy storage. Set it lower for a longer “cool rise” or turn up the heat to give your yeast a boost on a cold winter day. A large window gives you a full view of the spacious interior where your largest bowl or full sized loaves fit easily. There’s no need to cover your dough as the included water tray keeps humidity at an optimum level. The proofer accurately maintains the temperature you set, anywhere in the range of 70–120°F (21–49C). Its body is built of super tough reinforced polypropylene with a clear viewing window. The stainless steel wire rack, power cord and all other parts fit inside the proofer when folded. Inside dimensions are 15” x 12-1/2” x 8-1/2” high. Outside dimensions are (open): 18” x 14-1/2” x 10-1/2” high and (closed): 18” x 14-1/2” x 2-3/4” high, so it stores very easily.

How It Works
- Set Up: Lift the lid then remove the rack, power cord and water tray. Unfold the walls forward along the base into the built-in guides. Place the wire rack on top of the heating plate and over the water tray (if you’re using it). The plug input is on the side.
- Temperature & Pre-Heat: Press ON/OFF once for the POWER light to come on. Using the TEMP buttons, select your temperature and preheat for 10-15 minutes. The HEATING light will flash on and off when your optimal temperature is reached. Place your mixing bowl, loaf pans or baking sheet on the rack and close the lid.
- Humidity Control: The proofer may be operated in a dry or humid condition. To create a more humid environment, pour approximately ¼ cup (50ml) of water into the water tray. For best results, use warm or hot tap water.
- Fold & Store: Turn your proofer to OFF and allow to cool. Lift the lid to remove both wire rack and water tray. Fold the expanded box backwards then hinge it forward onto the base. Put the dry water tray in the front area. Invert the wire rack onto its slots. Place the folded power cord on top. Close the lid and press to lock.
Michael Taylor, an engineer and longtime bread baker, is well acquainted with the homespun solutions bakers have tried in search of a more controlled rise. An inventor by trade, Taylor saw a problem that needed a remedy. Home bakers needed a tool that offered the confidence and convenience of a professional proofer in an affordable, space-saving design. After years of careful research and testing, Taylor created the world’s first folding home proofer. The excellence of his approach shows in this outstanding product
