Compact size => small quantities

Rating:

Pros:
  • small quantities
  • easy clean up
Cons:
  • small quantities
From:
The small size means it doesn't take up much space in the cabinet or refrigerator, but it also doesn't strain much at one time -- not a problem for my purposes. I appreciate that it is easier to set up and clean up than cloth straining methods.

Compact strainer for Greek yogurt

I regularly make 2qts of yogurt with my Yogotherm. As others have said, if you want to strain all of it at once, this is not the product for you. It's perfect for me though because I generally only want to strain a portion of it for thicker yogurt (greek style) or yogurt cheese and it doesn't take up much room in the refrigerator. I do also follow the tips for a thicker yogurt by adding nonfat dry milk powder (recommend King Arthur Flour) and letting it sit at higher temperature in the pan for 20 minutes before cooling down to set.

Just right

I have used one of these for several years and have to disagree about the size issue. Really, its just right. Strained yogurt only takes a few hours to make, so a batch a day is not going to kill anyone, and the product will only keep for a week so making gallons may not be the thing to do. I love the size as I keep a small fridge and the square box can fit there nicely. I just scoop out what we need, put it back and when gone do it again. So, okay the cake dimension was a little off in the description. . . This is a nice little unit.

Way too small

My mother-in-law gave me one of these as a gift. I used it once and never again. I make yogurt in batches of 2 quarts, with a Yogotherm. What good would this silly little thing do? I drain my yogurt into cheese using flour sack towels from Bed Bath and Beyond -- works like a charm.

Well made but too small !

The product is well made and the idea is great but this thing is too small for my applications. The description says it is 6.1" x 5.9" x 5.1" in size, I think it may even be a little smaller than that. And keep in mind that the strainer itself is a lot smaller than that and the size of the strainer will limit the volume of cheese mixture you can fill into it. I am guessing that less than 10 ounces will fit. The picture is misleading, that must be a small piece of cake.

Also, I think it is not intended for the application most of us have in mind, making actual cheese, but instead it is basically a yogurt strainer so that you can get something with cream-cheese like consistency to use as a spread on your bagel. It is large enough for that. Personally, I would love a larger version of this for real cheese making but I guess instead I could just buy four of these (but that would be expensive !). Aside from the size issue I really like it, you can put the cheese mixture into the strainer and place the whole box into the fridge. A few hours later you have the whey separated from the cheese and you can use both if you like. It is not messy at all and very easy to clean in the top rack of the dish washer.

Works great but way to small!! The picture is very misleading I don't appreciate this.

If you are a lonely single cheese maker it's a good choice. If you have to make product for a family find another solution.

If the picture would be in real scale the slice of cake would be about the amount of "cheese" you can make!!

You certainly can not make the quantity of "cheese" it would take to create this cake in one batch.

I feel mislead, not a happy camper.

Works perfectly

Pros:
  • perfect function
  • cleans easily
Cons:
  • none

I've been using this for about a year, and it works great!



Low reviews because of size are silly--its size is right in the description, so if you want something for a larger quantity, get something else. If you can use something that drains 3 cups of yogurt into 1-1.5 cups drained, look no further! It works as designed, the lid keeps out other refrigerator odors, and it cleans up with little more than a rinse. We love it!
