plexiglass proof box top

Hi All,


This is my first post. I have a culinary team building cooking program in NYC and to relax love to bake bread... I also use the breads for my program...my problem is that several years ago I bought a plexiglass proofing box top that fits nicely over a half sheet pan.  I love it. Now that I am a maniac and will bake all weekend long I need more and can't find any. Does anyone know #1 what I am talking about and #2 where to find more?


Many thanks for your help/


Suzi

I got mine at King Arthur Flour (www.kingarthurflour.com).  The price was absurd but it does the job, and has for years.  These days you could probaby get something useful, see-through, and lot cheaper at Stacks and Stacks or The Container Store.  (I'm smarter now than I used to be...)

You can purchase acrylic sheets through your local hardware or home improvement store and do it this way:

I have some that I got at Sam's Club for proofing my dough, you can get one big enough to cover a sheet pan.  You can also get a sweater box and invert it over, but they usually aren't as clear.
