Rigid plastic breaks easily
I generally like all of the products that I've purchased through Cheesemaking.com, but unfortunately this is not one of them. This product is comprised of three pieces- a soft plastic lid, the mesh strainer, and a rigid plastic bowl. I used the plastic bowl for the ice bath because it fit in my sink better than the pot I use to heat my milk. Long story short, the heat from the milk followed by the cold from the ice bath caused the bowl to crack in half; I had only made 3 batches of yogurt.
If you purchase this item, I would suggest that you take care not to expose this plastic bowl to any sudden temperature changes, whether hot or cold.
