Yogotherm Yogurt Maker- 2-QT (E69)
Holy cow - I'd give this 10 stars!
Just got my yogotherm a couple of days ago. This was my first attempt at making yoghurt, and it's absolutely the best we've ever had! Incredibly fast & easy. Used Stonyfield yoghurt as the starter, local organic skim milk, and about 10 minutes of work. I didn't need to use the suggested milk powder or gelatin to get it really thick, just followed the instructions for draining off the whey (also delicious - I'll use it in my cooking). Why-oh-why did I not do this years ago? I think I'm saving $4-6/week. Thanks so much for the best new product I've tried in years! (Also fast delivery and helpful customer service.)
The size wasn't a problem. I let the yoghurt sit out overnight in the yogotherm (at the suggestion of customer service), drained it for an hour or two, then put the yoghurt into a regular 1-quart yoghurt container for refrigeration.
Love my Yogotherm
I've been using the Yogotherm for 2 years now and LOVE IT! The yogurt is easy to make and so yummy! Not only can I control the quality of my yogurt vs. store-bought but we are no longer throwing away/recycling a plastic tub every week. I feel better about what we are eating because we can make it nonfat and organic and its a bonus that we are not adding to the landfill. All it takes is about 10-15 minutes then leaving the milk and culture overnight. I do use a gelatin at times to make it thicker but realistically, higher fat milk thickens more than nonfat so you can really do without that additive. My nieces love adding their own flavors to the yogurt with different jams and jellies while we like plain. Overall, a great product!
Wow! Bigger Than I Expected
Well, I just ordered this. I was a little surprised on how big it is and hope I can find a place in my small Kitchen for it. I am new to making yogurt, etc. and have not tried it yet. We will see how it goes. I think this item is a little spendy in my opinion, none the less it should make the process a little easier I would think. At any rate, I'm very excited to give it a try! P.S. It would be great if this item would have come in different colors (just a suggestion to pass on to the manufacturer :-)).
