Brod & Taylor

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

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.

The Proofer creates a consistent temperate environment for rising your favorite homemade bread dough, making yogurt and melting chocolate.


Though spacious enough to hold several loaves of bread or a large mixing bowl, the Proofer has been engineered to fold down flat for storage. It will fit easily in a wide kitchen drawer or with sheet pans and chopping boards. Rack and water tray store inside Proofer when closed.

Years of engineering, planning and fine tuning have gone into the development of the Brod and Taylor folding proofer and as a result is cherished by it’s owners.

How to Set Up the Proofer

Watch the video for a demonstration of how easy the setup of the Brød & Taylor Folding Proofer really is.  Within seconds the proofer is set up and ready to go.


Make Yogurt, Slow-Cook, Temper Chocolate, Proof Dough and much more!

The Brod and Taylor has very precise temperature regulation which makes it ideal for anything that requires a steady temperature.  Even slow cooking at 80+ Degrees Celcius is possible with the proofer, meaning you can slow cook your meat in the same pot that you used to brown it.

The Brod & Taylor makes Tempering is the easiest part of working with chocolate — a little stirring is all that’s required.
Professional bakers have proofers big enough to fit a person, and now you can have a proofer in your home that you can store in a drawer.  This lets you finally get you the perfect rise for sourdough, bread dough, and pizza dough to get just the right amount of fluffiness.
DIY yogurt requires a precise temperature so that it doesn’t curdle.  Unlike with a yogurt maker, the Brod and Taylor lets you make litres at a time if you so wish.
