Where to buy a Brod and Taylor proofer

I am just sick-hearted. One more time I turned my oven on low (150 is the lowest setting) and FORGOT TO TURN IT OFF before I put my beautiful multigrain dough in to ferment. My dough overrose and dried out but didn't  cook-it had been cold retarded so it was raring to go. I am NOT throwing it waway-the dough tastes too good. It will either make pancakes,muffins or flatbread-depending on what capabilities I can eak out of it.

I am done trying to fake it-Brod and Taylor for me! Merry Belated Christmas!

Anyone know the best place to buy one?

While I purchased mine directly from B&T when they first came out, Amazon carries them now as well as King Arthur Flour.

You'll probably get a better deal on shipping from Amazon.

The B&T proofer is pretty darn fanstastic.  You won't regret the purchase.

My husband bought me one direct from Brod and Taylor for Christmas.  I'm very happy with it.  No more worries about the temperature for proofing your dough.  It was a relief for me and the bread results are more consistent.

I can hardly wait for mine to arrive in the next few days ! Before ordering I checked several sites including Brod and Taylor and Amazon regarding price and the all important shipping. I am in Canada and even sites here could not beat King Arthur - last week they offered it for $147 with free shipping.

Best of luck , Merlie.

Seriously love the Brod and Taylor proofer. I now make a gallon of yogurt at a time too and their custard style recipe is WAY better than what you yogurt maker suggested. My 1/2 gallon yogurt maker will be up for sale soon.

I ordered it on Amazon and got it right from Brod and Taylor with free shipping. What a difference in starter,dough and yogurt. I believe in having the right tools for the job and this one is definitely a great tool. No regrets here!

My Mom is always asking me what she can get me for Christmas, and I can't ever think of anything, until this year, and I told her she could get me this, as I had been contemplating it, but kept putting it off.  

She has already gotten several samples of bread made in it, so she says it was a good investment!  She always gets something when she comes over, but she can tell I am experimenting, as she has gotten more than normal.

I was actually contemplating making one of those homemade versions in Wood's Classic Sourdoughs, then I saw this on the market.  And so far, I have not made a batch of sourdough that was bland or over soured - things that would invariably happen when using just room temp., or chilling the doughs.  I have some rye dough rising in it now, just on 70º, but it is a constant temp., not varying all day and night.  And I have made yougurt in it already, and it came out great.  No chocolate tempering yet, but give me time... 

I got it from KAF, and got 15% off, plus a $10 gift card, but these were Christmas specials (Mom was glad I did the shopping! LOL).
