Prepare yourself for the best bread you've ever baked...

I had been eyeing this product but hadn't committed. My DIY solution was to warm up the oven slightly and add a pan of boiling water to create some humidity for my sourdough starter (and subsequent dough). It actually worked pretty well until I forgot to inform my wife one day. Well, she preheated the oven and fully cooked my starter. I bought this proofing box literally minutes later. WOW. I've made the best loaves of my life since purchasing this incredible product. As others have stated, the results are consistent and fantastic. The folding/storing feature is super helpful, and I could not possibly be happier with this proofing box! Get it. Simple as that. Bravo, Brød & Taylor!!!

Best tool for home bread baker

Does as advertised and works without issue. Better than proofing in the oven or on the kitchen counter. While it would be nicer to have a model that would fit a standard half-sheet, this unit is way better than nothing. Have not used the 'slow cooker' function but the humidity controlled bread proofing has worked yielding consistent and repeatable results. I also agree with other reviewers about the storage of the power cord.

perfect addition

We didn't know we needed this until now. We now use it a lot, and love it.

Bread bakers’ best friend

The proofer makes it so easy to proof dough at consistent temperature, leading to predictable proofing times and better results. I love my Brod and Taylor and wish I had bought it sooner in my bread baking journey. If the designers are listening, I have two suggestions for improvements. Make the lid so it can be hinged open, rather than having to remove the lid to access the chamber. Also, make it easier to store the power cord in the folded up proofer.

Professional results at home.

Innovative folding design. Big enough to fit a large mixing bowl, several hand-shaped loaves, 2 gallons of yogurt, or your favorite 8 quart pot, yet easily folds flat (with rack and water tray stowed inside) for convenient and compact storage in a kitchen drawer.

One appliance. Endless uses. A true multi-tasker, the proofing box can be used to keep your sourdough starter strong, your bread dough warm and rising, and your kombucha brewing. It can become a homemade yogurt machine or turn your favorite pot into your favorite slow cooker.

If you’re at all interested in doing bread, fermentation, dehydrating, or just about anything interesting in your cooking, then you need to have these in your kitchen.”
