2-9. OPERATING PROCEDURE - Continued
Proofing Cabinet. Make electrical connections (para. 2-9. a.) and proceed as follows:
Fill the four water pans (1) half full of water and set them back in the cabinet. Close cabinet doors and latch
with knobs (2).
Check indicator light (3) for power. Set the thermostatic (4) switch at 95 (35 ).
Operate the proofing cabinet until the desired temperature and humidity are reached. Cabinet should be
operated about 30 minutes before proofing the loaves.
Load the bread pans into the cabinet, starting with top rack (5) and filling one section at a time so only one
door is open at a time. Keep doors closed as much as possible to prevent loss of heat and humidity.
If two operators are loading the cabinet, one operator will carry the bread pans from the mixing and makeup
outfit trailer and the other operator will open and close the cabinet doors.
When the bread is proofed, unload the cabinet and place the loaves in the oven as soon as possible. Follow
the same procedure in unloading as was followed in loading, being careful not to jar the loaves and keeping
the doors closed as much as possible.
