Yet another lockdown sourdough fetishist/hobby baker. In the summer, getting a great rise is easy as: the rest of the year I've been using my oven as an overly expensive proving drawer. It only took me a year to realise that was dumb. So I swallowed my pride and ordered this device.
It's great. I can put it away when I don't need to use it. I can set it up anywhere I have electricity. It really only does one thing for me, but it doest that one thing really well. If you bake bread 2 or more times a week, it's good value. And definitely order the extra rack, which effectively doubles your capacity to proof.
Found this when we were looking for something to proof our baking and are delighted with it (our initial search found a custom made walk in proofer, nice, but a bit large and pricey). The Brod and Taylor proofer is well designed, is easy to use and folds down compactly for storage. Initially we found it on a US website, and were pleased to find it was also available in NZ.
It has made a huge difference to baking yeast products – so far we have made Samoan pani popo, cinnamon buns and plan to make brioche, bread and stollen. We also made yoghurt which was tasty, quick and easy.
We’re thinking of making some butter and maybe even some cheese in the future.
The plate arrived fast and well packaged. It is the perfect size for my oven. It's heavy as it should be, absorbs and transfers the heat really well and makes a rather noticeable difference to the end result. I regret not getting is sooner! 100% recommended!
Have spent the lockdown sharpening every knife I have. The edge looks so much better and they cut everything like a hot knife through butter (pun intended). Highly recommend
