Standard Proofers & Retarders

Are you curious about standard proofers & retarders? They are cabinets that offer adjustable temperature and relative humidity. During the last phase of the cycle, they transform from a cold storage room to a heated cabinet to encourage proving. Fermented products can be retarded and stored overnight or through the weekend, automatically proving the product ready for baking at a pre-set time.

Standard Proofers & Retarders and Their Benefits

The retarder controls and optimizes the leavening process with precision, without compromising hygiene and quality, producing improved aroma and fragrance compared to foods subjected to the traditional, natural leavening process. Retarder-proofers have greater temperature control and overcome the problems of moisture control from proofers alone.

This means that you need to change the way you think about baking bread. Traditionally, bread making has been thought of as a make and bake process. Modern technology has allowed the retarder-proofer to be almost foolproof and become one of the best things to come along for the baking industry

The greatest saving a retarder-proofer can provide is time. Within a traditional make and bake setting, you have to start work earlier in the morning to:

  • knead the dough;
  • shape and mould;
  • allow the products to rise;
  • put it in the oven about 2 hours after you started work.

With a retarder-proofer in your bakery, when you start work in the morning:

  • all the dough is fermented ready for the oven;
  • the dough only needs to be put into the ovens — an immediate saving of 2 hours;
  • which gives you time to shape and knead tomorrow’s dough batch and place into the proofer cabinet.

The retarder-proofer is a great money and time saver. It exploits the last hour of baking time, during which you can be preparing new dough and refilling the unit. With labor costs being what they are, the equipment soon starts to pay for itself!
