This proofing box is going to be an absolute game changer in my sourdough journey! I’ve only used it a handful of times so far but it has made all the difference in proofing my dough and there’s no guessing anymore. Also our home has single paned windows and it’s always freezing in the wintertime. I know this is going to be so helpful during those cold winter months to keep my sourdough at perfect temp! I highly recommend if you love to bake like I do!
I have been proofing my bread etc. in many creative ways but now that I have this proofer there is no more guesswork. I have made several loaves of sourdough that turned out perfectly.
Folding Proofer with Accessory Shelf
Tried to cook a roast in a terracotta flower pot for 3 days and it didn’t work. Family got very ill and had massive quantities of diarrhea for days. I don’t think this heats consistently enough to have slow cooking as one of its functions. I wasted a perfectly good terracotta pot for this!
The proofer is a great product. Simplifies temperature control for bread-making, and excellent as a slow cooker. Safe and reliable. There are a couple of design changes I would make - a) the electrial cord comes out the front of the unit which gets in the way and depending on space, one may have to put the unit with the controls facing the wall - and not accessible. b) there is heat leakage around the bottom of the wall unit because of a lack of clips to hold it in place.
Two things I would fix and then it would get a 5-star rating Would I recommend it now? Absolutely.
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.
