Brod & Taylor Folding Bread Proofer & Slow Cooker FP-205

Product number: 63493

There are plenty of hit-and-miss ways to prove bread dough. Sticking it in the airing cupboard. Putting it by a radiator (or one of our heated airers). Turning your bottom oven on very low and putting it in the top oven. But this Folding Bread Proofer does the job expertly, heating anything you put inside it to a gentle, consistent, easily controlled temperature, so you can bring out the best possible flavour in your loaves.

And it’s not just for the bread bakers. Anyone who makes their own yoghurt, or kefir or kombucha, or handcrafted chocolates should take a closer look too, as it’s also perfect for helping to grow cultures and tempering chocolate. You can even use it for slow cooking, turning out tender, succulent, mouth-watering one-pot meals.

What you get

  • Folding bread proofer – with expanding box section that folds down for storage, easy-to-use control panel to set temperatures from 21˚C to 49°C in the proofing modes and 30°C to 90°C in the slow cooking mode, base heating element, thermostat to keep temperatures within a narrow range, and hinged lid with clear viewing window.
  • Stainless steel wire rack – for resting loaves and fermented foods on.
  • Water tray – fill with water to prove bread dough.
  • Detachable power cord.
  • Instruction manual and recipe booklet – includes recipes for different breads including sourdough loaves, yoghurt, and instructions on how to temper chocolate.

Proves bread dough

Select a low setting for a long, slow rise or pre-fermentation, or turn up the heat to give yeast a boost on a cold day, or to prove sourdough or rye loaves. There’s a water tray to increase the humidity to help out, and you can even keep an eye on your expanding loaf through the viewing window (because we all know how satisfying that is!). There’s room to prove two large (1kg/2lb) loaves at once, so it’s ideal if your family get through a lot of home-made bread.

Helps with fermenting and growing cultures

Yoghurt, kefir, kombucha, sour cream, crème fraîche – if fermented foods are your thing, this will get the job done expertly, helping to grow cultures safely and efficiently. Just remove the water tray and place containers on the rack above the heating plate.

Works as a slow cooker and tempers chocolate too

We love slow-cooked food for its melt-in-the-mouth flavours, and if you don’t have a separate slow cooker, this is a great substitute. Remove the water tray and the rack, pop your meal in a covered pot and place it inside for succulent, tender results. You can use it to make black garlic, for sous vide cooking, and it works like a dream at melting and tempering chocolate for the silkiest, shiniest finish.

Easy to assemble and store

The design is really ingenious. Just open up the lid, pull out and click the central box section into place, then replace the lid on top. It’s ready to use in seconds, and just as easy to fold away when you’re done. And when it’s folded it’s just 8cm deep, so is easy to store – the rack and water tray cleverly fit inside even when it’s folded, so you don’t have to find somewhere else for them.

"A perfect little prover"

star star star star star

This is such a brilliant little device. It folds up neatly for storage and can be quickly assembled in to a perfect little proving space. I am used to my sourdough taking hours to prove and rise but I can now produce a loaf in half the time. It is such a relief to take the temperature changes in my kitchen out of the equation in bread making. The little booklet that comes with it is excellent too.

"Expensive but brilliant"

star star star star star

We have a cold kitchen with not a lot of worktop space and this solves both problems. The recipe in the instruction book for brioche is very simple and makes an excellent loaf. It's expensive but works perfectly every time.

"Best Kitchen Item EVER"

star star star star star

this is one my best purchases. If you have a cold kitchen and no airing cupboard to prove your bread, then buy this, it is worth every penny. I use mine at least twice a week. I have not used my breadmaker since purchasing this. Folds away, so takes up mush less room than a bread machine. Just cannot praise this product enough.
