Rated 5 out of 5 by acadia49 from Everyone should have Brod & Taylor Proofer! This is an excellent product. You will not go wrong with this purchase. I have been making bread non-stop since I have received the Brod & Taylor Proofer. It saves so much time in proofing your bread. No need to worry about your dough drying out when it is in the proofer. Between my Kitchenaid mixer and the Brod and Taylor Proofer, I had 2 large loaves of bread in the oven in under 2 hrs.Date published: 2019-02-24Rated 5 out of 5 by jccwc from Game changer Someone gave me this as a gift and I couldn’t be more thrilled with it. If it’s too cold in the house, no problem. During Christmas I made 88 Parker House rolls for our Christmas family get together dinner and this appliance helped me to proof each batch without having to heat up the kitchen. I also went to the company’s website to get more info on proofing temps. It sets up easily, is roomy, and folds up easily for storage. This proofer has an easy to use digital interface. Hope this lasts me a lifetime.Date published: 2018-06-20Rated 5 out of 5 by Space Coast Baker from Game Changer! Definitely Buy One! I treated myself after reading all the reviews online. I am a novice bread baker. I struggle with homemade bread/rolls. And here in Florida although it is warm, it is difficult to get a consistent temp for rise especially when the a/c is on often. I had almost given up. This proofer is worth every penny! I was amazed at the immediate, consistent rise. It was so easy to put together and use! I am looking forward to trying more bread/roll recipes and then onto yogurt and slow cooking! It disassembles into a flat item making it perfect to store. Purchasing the additional shelf is a must!Date published: 2018-02-02Rated 5 out of 5 by 5AMcoffee from Definitely Worth It This was a tough decision to spend this much on a "gadget" which I wasn't sure would really help address the problem of proofing my bread doughs. I have an open concept home which makes it hard to find a draft free place for the doughs to get comfortable enough to do their thing. Well, I no longer think of this as a gadget, it's more like divine intervention. This has completely simplified my bread making. This proofer couldn't be easier to set up, use, break down and store away. I'm petite and not very strong, but it's very lightweight so no problem handling it. It quickly gets to the right temp and stays there. I'm able to fit anything from a small boule banneton up to my large 6 liter dough bucket (without lid) inside. I'm really impressed with how well it's built; the parts are all of good quality and fit nicely together. I appreciate this every day, as I set it up to bake bread. This is a good investment if it holds up to daily use, which I hope it will.Date published: 2017-02-06Rated 5 out of 5 by JackBrooklyn from Yes, you really need one of these. If you're a serious lover of yogurt, and making your own on a regular basis, you really need one of these. I always ferment my yogurt for 24 hours at 105 degrees, to remove all lactose, and this gizmo makes it a breeze. Those yogurt makers with those small jars, just don't cut it, if you and your family eat yogurt on a regular basis. People try making yogurt with a various number of methods, but this is the easiest, and most consistent. It also works great for proofing bread dough. I use it for "No Knead Bread", and the dough turns out perfect. It's an investment, but a good one.Date published: 2017-01-25Rated 5 out of 5 by Heyokah from There's A New Baker In Town... ...And she's me! After all these years of rigging heat lamps, buttered plastic wrap, heating pads, boiling water, oven light, etc., finally, a simple, easy to use, perfect proofing environment with controlled temperatures and (or not) humidity that will restore anyone's enthusiasm for baking bread. And with the Shelf Rack Accessory (FS-165, not included) capacity easily doubles to include 2 sheet pans, or four loaf pans. It did well proofing and holding chocolate, and functioned adequately as a slow cooker, and a sous vide. My tiny house is only 750 square feet, so I don't give up space readily, but this multi function appliance easily made the cut. I store it and the accessories in an old attaché case. Perfect!Date published: 2017-01-19Rated 5 out of 5 by Luvs2bake1961 from Bread Making Made Easier! I have used this several times already. My kitchen is typically not warm enough to quickly rise dough. This proffer speeds up the process considerably. I love it!Date published: 2017-01-18
Hi, would you know if I can use the Brod & Taylor Folding Proofer & Slow Cooker to make my own sourdough wild yeast starter? I live along the coastline and the cold weather doesn't allow me to grow my own wild yeast starter. If so, at what temp? Thx u.Hi Loann, According to their website, "The Proofer’s accuracy will help prevent damage to wild yeast, which are far more sensitive to heat than commercial yeast." We recommend calling the vendor at (800) 768-7064 M-F 8am to 5pm EST to inquire what temperature is advised for growing your own wild yeast starter.Date published: 2019-05-19
