OK, Now I'm impressed - Brod & Taylor Folding Proofer
Ok, there are any number of less expensive ways to keep dough cozy when house temperatures are low. I know, I know. It's a toy, ok, I know.
In the course of my so called "normal" life there are extended periods of time when I work a lot of hours under great stress. And sometimes you need a toy.
And I believe it was Captain Kirk, wasn't it, who said "The more complex the mind, the greater the need for the simplicity of play."?
So this weekend I finally got to play with my folding proofer.
Being of somewhat unsound mind, I pondered mightily what I would use for a bulk ferment container - being absolutely sure that mine wouldn't fit. But it did. My largest proofing container (which is what I almost always use these days) actually fit. Just barely, but it fit.
What we really need are some rectangular containers that could fit in a stack because once my big round container is in there is not much real estate for a second batch. And I'm sure some enterprising individual >hint, hint< will come up with some containers like that.
Half sheet pans are out of the question, of course but I didn't think the proofer would hold that container. But it did.
I'm not sure I'm ready to attempt uncovered proofing just yet, but I have high hopes for this gadget. Impressive. And I'm not even a tester. I paid for the thing.
