Brød & Taylor Dough Proofer
The Brød & Taylor Dough 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. This innovative folding proofer accurately maintains the temperature you set, in the range of 70–195°F (21–90C), in five degree increments. 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 14.75” x 12-1/2” x 8.75” 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.
Pizza dough... artisan sourdough... yogurt... the Brød & Taylor bread proofing box provides a warm, humid environment for more consistent results with rising yeast dough recipes. These include organic whole grain recipes, made-from-scratch bread loaves, pastries, gluten-free yeast bread recipes, soft pretzels, doughnuts, focaccia, cinnamon rolls, and croissants, to name a few. The Brød & Taylor bread proofer is also the ultimate yogurt maker, developing perfect yogurt in either one large, or several smaller containers. Nothing's easier than making delicious yogurt at home with this machine.
Versatile performer: In addition to its outstanding core performance as a dough proofer, this versatile Brød & Taylor product is also a slow cooker, yogurt maker, hot plate and more!
“Easy to work with. Keeps temperature steady when proofing dough. Best of all it collapses for storage and doesn't take much space.”
– Blanca P., FL
Brød & Taylor's innovative bread proofing box is a multi-use kitchen tool perfected for home bread bakers—or anyone with an appreciation for scratch recipes, organic cooking and wholesome ingredients. Designed as the ultimate solution for rising yeast dough, the proofer’s consistent low-heat also works as a yogurt maker, chocolate tempering machine, bread crisper, plate warmer and more. One efficient, elegant, collapsible appliance does it all – both safely and conveniently. It’s a great new tool for any kitchen where organic, homemade recipes are valued and prepared, and it has really taken off among our customers at Pleasant Hill Grain.
NEW: The Brød & Taylor proofer now has a slow cooker mode! In slow cooker mode temperatures may be set between 85–195°F (29–90C), in five degree increments. For slow cooking recipes that recommend a low setting in traditional slow cookers, set the temperature to the maximum setting of 195°F. Always use a lid on the pot when slow cooking. The rack and water tray are not used when slow cooking. For best results, use a heavy duty Dutch oven or stock pot with a tight fitting lid. Maximum dimensions for a slow cooker pot are 11.5" diameter and 8.75" high, including handles and lid.
Included with the Brød & Taylor Proofer & Slow Cooker is a 55-page booklet with recipes for yeast breads, sourdough, yogurt, butter, cheese, kefir, kombucha, tempeh, and slow-cooker recipes like chuck roast, pulled pork and black garlic.
How the Dough Proofer 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. Select the PROOFER mode. Using the TEMP buttons, select your temperature and preheat for 10-15 minutes. The HEATING light will be red until your optimal temperature is reached, at which point it will turn green. Place your mixing bowl, proofing baskets, 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. Scroll to the bottom of the product description to see how easy it is to fold the proofer for compact storage.
“I just got my folding proofer and I'm so excited! On my strict medical diet I need to make my own 24-hour yogurt and I’ve been told the Brod & Taylor proofer is THE way to do it! Thanks Pleasant Hill Grain! I'm stoked to get yogurt-ing!”

Michael Taylor, an engineer and longtime bread baker, is well acquainted with the homespun solutions bakers have tried in search of a more controlled dough rise. An inventor at heart, 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 he created the world’s first folding home proofer, and it's truly an outstanding product.
Cook's Illustrated recommends the Brod & Taylor folding proofer. They found it performs well and is easy to use and clean.

I've been baking without this item for twenty-plus years. I tried the proofer yesterday and can report that the precise control made perfect crumb and crust! Plus, the humid rising environment meant no more pesky oiled cling wrap on top! Love it.....3 out of 3 people found this review helpful. Did you?

I lived in western NY for most of my life and had little to no issues with proofing my dough until I moved to central Florida. Air conditioning is normal here almost year round making finding a warmer proofing area essential. Most stoves here are electric as well making it even trickier. I had stopped making breads out of frustration until I found this proofer. I had to talk myself in to buying it seeing it as frivolous, but my family is so happy to have me baking again it was worth the price. My best example of use is that I'm able to make salt-raising again, a bread I had failed at making here for fifteen years. Thank you so much!1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
This is a very solid little proofer. It folds up flat enough to stash away in a small kitchen. We keep our house quite cool in the winter, this will make all kinds of difference for bread and yogurt making!1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
