I originally contacted Michael Taylor in 2012 when a customer gave me an article on his newly invented "Folding Bread Proofer" cabinet for domestic use. It's a thermostatically heated cabinet for proving breads, yoghurts, etc. When not in use, it can be folded flat to store away.
I asked Michael if he would ever consider making a 240v version of the Cabinet so I could offer them in NZ.
It wasn't too long after he launched the Proofer in the US market (which took off like wildfire) that Michael decided to make a 240v version for the European and Australasian market. So I made a small tentative order of his "Folding Bread Proofer" to see if they would sell here. And they did!
Brod & Taylor's Bread Proofer (and you can Slow Cook in it as well now) became a world wide success and his company grew exponentially and are now innovative inventors/manufacturers of a range of high quality niche domestic products.
Brod & Taylor is still a family business with Michael and son Warren at the helm.
Several years ago, Michael & Warren decided to set up individual Brod & Taylor Websites around the world to service the customer base. Each country website is privately owned and act as the B&T distributor for that country. Michael invited me to own/operate the NZ Brod & Taylor Website, which has been such a good thing for both of us.
