Bread Proofer by Brod and Taylor

Challah breadThe Brod & 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.

The innovative Brod and Taylor folding bread proofer accurately maintains the temperature you set, in the range of 70–195°F (21–90C), in five degree increments. Its cabinet 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 12.5” x 8.75” high. Outside dimensions are (open): 18” x 14.5” x 10.5” high and (closed): 18” x 14.5” x 2.75” high, so it stores very easily.

Included with the Brod and Taylor Bread 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 caramelized "black" garlic.

Pizza dough... artisan sourdough... yogurt... the Brod and Taylor dough 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 and 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.


In addition to its outstanding core performance as a dough proofer, this versatile Brod and Taylor product is also a slow cooker, yogurt maker, hot plate and more!

When your bread's been finished, your Brod and Taylor proofer is the ideal bread warmer, keeping it at perfect serving temperature. One elegant, easy-storing appliance does it all, conveniently and efficiently.

Wheat sourdough bread slicedBrod & Taylor Slow Cooker Mode

The Brod and Taylor bread 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.

How the Bread 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 Brod and Taylor bread 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 Brod and Taylor bread 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'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! Perfect control equals perfect bread.”

    – Susan G., NY


One of the things we like most about the Brod and Taylor bread proofer is the toughness of its construction. Between the details of the design and the quality of its materials, our experience—after an extended period of offering this product—is that breakage is a non-issue. It assembles very quickly, feels solid, and truly is a rugged, reliable performer. We've used one in the PHG test kitchen for years and endorse it enthusiastically.

About the Brod and Taylor Engineer

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 real problem that needed a remedy. Home bakers needed a tool that offered the confidence and convenience of a professional proofer in an affordable, versatile, 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.
