Any advice from long term owner of the B&T proofer?

I finally stepped up and bought the Brod & Taylor proofer and I am over the moon with it. In my early experience with it I thought of two hacks that I'd love to do:

  1. Some sort of light to make checking the state of the rise easier
  2. Insulation of the sides

Anyone have thoughts? Also any advice or hints from the mavens would be welcome.

Thanks,

Terry

I've had mine for a couple years, and never really thought about modifications.  It works flawlessly the way it is.  A light seems like an interesting idea, though.  Maybe rig some sort of LED with a switch mounted on the side.  But then that could interfere with the ability to fold and store it.  If anything, simply looking through the window always works for me. 

I am with you, though.  I have been really enjoying mine!
