3. Proofer

Proofing is a pre-baking process, bread dough is kept in a proofing chamber for fermentation, due to the same process breads get their characteristic honeycomb-like structure.

The proofing chamber provides the right environment for dough fermentation. So that the dough rises just as we want it to.

The proofer is also available in multiple tray capacities.

5. Dough Divider

A dough divider is used to divide the dough into multiple equal parts. 

Now, if you ask, “Why would I ever want to buy a full machine just to divide the dough?”

For example: If you are baking buns, and each of your buns weighs exactly 16 grams and you bake 500 buns a day. Imagine how much time it will take for your workers to divide the buns into equal pieces. Doing it manually will increase the chances of errors as well, which will later impact your unit economics as well.
