Making a lot of dough has never been easier.

The patented airflow and humidity systems of the Baxter Standard Retarder/Proofer ensure careful proofing of delicate products. Our airflow system forces air through the retarder/proofer in two different directions, creating a circular pattern of heat for a balanced, controlled proof that minimizes product drying. Our humidification system creates abundant moisture using a nozzle to spray water onto a heated metal plate. Temperature and moisture levels are also controlled during the retarding cycles to eliminate drying before the proof cycle begins.

Our retarder/proofer has door-mounted, eye-level digital controls to let you precisely set temperature and humidity for the proofing cycle as well as set the retarding temperature to meet the requirements of your product. What’s more, a programmable 24-hour timer allows programming of both retarding and proofing cycle settings up to one week in advance.

For space-saving equipment, it offers surprising depth.

We know that your operation is just as variable as the products you need to proof. That’s why every retarder/proofer width we offer, single or double, is available in five depths to accommodate larger foodservice operations and smaller bakeries. The versatility doesn’t end there. We include four independent rack timers, so you can simultaneously proof products that require varying times at once. A programmable 24-hour timer can be set to a one- or seven-day cycle.

Standard single-wide retarder/proofers come with a field-reversible door that can be hinged on the right or left and switched on site to accommodate workflow. Our double-wide retarder/proofer has all the standard features, plus doors that swing from the outside corners and have a lap strip where they meet in the center—no center jamb to obstruct or limit loading.
