I live on the Oregon coast where the temperature rarely exceeds 70 degrees.  It seems to take much longer for my bread to rise than the Bread Bible states, and I think a bread proofing box would solve the problem.  However, a search of sources listed in the Bible has not yielded any proofing boxes.  Has anyone had experience finding this product?

the new Brod & Taylor. Julie works for them, I believe. It’s a fairly new product. I’m also thinking of getting one for the cool months here. But you can use it for many more things other than bread proofing.

King Arthur now carries the bread proofer , it was in their latest catalog.  I have one, and it is wonderful!

And if you want to opt for easy and inexpensive a cardboard box works pretty well. Especially with an open container of hot water inside.

Thanks all, for pointing out the B&T Proofer!  Here’s a link to the website:  http://brodandtaylor.com/

This comment may now be irrelevant since it was posted last year, but I thought I might comment as an avid artisan bread baker and fellow Oregonian who has had a similar proofing problem. I’m not sure where I first saw this idea, but it works! If you have a microwave and a pyrex cup, you can make your own bread proofing box.

I put a 1-cup pyrex cup of water in my microwave for approximately 2 minutes. At the point it is very hot and makes a perfect mild heat source. Push the cup back into a corner of the microwave to allow room for your bread bowl, place your bread into the microwave (without turning it on) and you have a perfect insulated bread proofing box.
