Proofing Bread

Proofing bread prepares dough for baking by activating the
yeast. Proofing twice is recommended.
To Proof:
1. Cover dough with lightly oiled wax paper and place
temperature safe bowl(s) directly on bottom of drawer.
2. Set control knob to PROOF setting.
3. Place vent on MOIST setting.
4. Check dough periodically for proofing progress.
5. Verify doneness by pressing 2 fingers
dough. If indentation remains, the dough is ready.
For second proofing of dough, follow steps 1-4.

Aluminum Foil

Do not line warming drawer with aluminum foil.
Keep food covered if it was cooked with a cover on it.
Use narrow strips of foil to shield pie crust edges from further
browning in drawer.

dryness and further browning while in the drawer.
The use of aluminum foil to cover foods may cause moisture to
collect and drip into the drawer.
