How it Works: Proofer Mode

Accurate Low-Temperature Warmth for Bread, Yogurt, DIY Superfoods, and Tempering Chocolate

The Brod & Taylor Folding Proofer creates an environment of consistent low-temperature warmth that is vital for many kitchen processes. Gentle and consistent radiant heat rises from the aluminum base plate. Digital temperature controls provide settings from 21–49C.

A thermostat in the base of the Proofer controls the heat within a narrow range, making the Proofer much more consistent than yogurt makers, dehydrators, or ovens on proof settings. Food is warmed with radiant heat from the base and is generally stable within several degrees.

Proofer Mode – Humid

For rising bread, humidity may be increased by using the included water tray (typical humidity is 60-80%). 

Proofer Mode – Dry

The Brod & Taylor Folding Proofer used in Dry Mode is best for making yogurt, chocolate, butter, tempeh, kifir, kombucha, sour cream, creme fraiche, cheese, and natto. Simply remove the water tray and place containers on the rack above the heating plate.

How it Works: Slow Cooker Mode

The first slow cooker in the world: Folds down to just 8cm thickness!

The Folding Proofer & Slow Cooker used in the Slow Cook Mode is best for traditional slow cooking, making black garlic, and sous vide cooking. Simply place your metal covered metal pot directly on the heating plate.
For slow cooking in the Proofer both the rack and the water tray are removed. Set the temperature on the digital panel according to what is specified in the Brod & Taylor recipe you are preparing. Brod & Taylor Slow Cooking recipes link here.
