Dough Whisk

Dough Whisk
+$44.95 Each


Dough Whisk

Dishwasher safe, ultra-sturdy construction that is built to last. Extra-thick stainless steel powers through the stiffest doughs, batters, and more.

The right mixing tool is essential when making bread or working with any ingredients that need to be combined quickly and effectively. Most dough whisks are made with an unstable handle attachment to the whisk wire, and these just don’t hold up over time.

Our whisk is a one-piece multi-purpose kitchen tool especially good at combining wet/dry ingredients with little effort or mess. Featuring an innovative non-slip molded silicone handle, the total length is 13.5 inches.

Love this bit of kit

Recommended by a friend, the Folding Proofer is the answer to my sourdough issues with uneven seasonal temperatures and conditions. It gives my dough recipes more consistency. The window at the top lets you observe how things are going; its thoughtful design means it folds away neatly. To-date it's proofed excellent bread and made wonderful yogurt. Instruction booklets are thorough. Impressive all round

Jill Murphy

Simple and easy to use. Does exactly as it says. Packs away neatly into the box it came in when not in use and stores in a cupboard. I have waited a while to get this and could not be happier.

It takes the guess work and stress out of getting the proofing temps right for my sourdough and other rolls (I love cinnamon buns) and I can better schedule my bread making days.

Awesome piece of kit for the home baker that I now don’t know how I did without.

Review of Folding Proofer

What a remarkable product!
Works well - just removes another variable from our sourdough journey.
Love the way it folds away for storage.

John Egan
Deliberated a long time about buying this. Very glad I did

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.

Alan Fairbairn
Folding Proofer & Slow Cooker

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.

Thank you.

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.
