Best Frozen Yogurt Makers for the Home

cuisinart iceFrozen yogurt is a healthy alternative to ice cream or other sweet treats, it is tasty, and much better for you! Many high street stores sell frozen yogurt, but you can also make it at home, and there are appliances out there to help you. A decent frozen yogurt can be made in any decent ice cream maker. That is why you will always see ice cream makers being advertised as also capable of making frozen yogurt. Below are some of the best frozen makers you can buy.

Cuisinart ICE-30BC

Clad in a brushed stainless steel housing, the Cuisinart ICE-30BC is actually an attractive sight, especially for a kitchen appliance. Coupled with its ability to make great frozen yogurt and outstanding features, plus the usual top class customer support from Cuisinart, there is no way anyone cannot like this maker.

Features

  • Heavy duty motor
  • Double insulated freezer bowl
  • On/off dial
  • Instruction and recipe booklets

The Cuisinart ICE-30BC makes great frozen yogurt. And it does this in less than 25 minutes living up to Cuisinart’s claim that it gets the job done in 25 minutes or less. The freezer bowl is just adequate with a capacity of 2 quarts. Cleaning it is a breeze and so are the other parts (4 parts in total).

The instructions booklet it comes with is clear and you will be making frozen yogurt in minutes, thanks to the included recipes. There is just a single dial for turning it on or off. Overall usability is outstanding and couldn’t be easier. It is versatile, very high quality and can handle making big capacities for a big family! I highly recommend this if you are looking forward to making frozen yogurt for your family.

Hamilton Beach 68330N

Not everyone can afford the high-end frozen yogurt makers. And the good thing is that the market is well diversified and you will likely find something cheaper like the Hamilton Beach 68330N, it is a budget alternative to some of the big price tag products out there but that doesn’t mean you have to suffer with quality.

Features

  • 4 quarts capacity
  • Easy lock lid
  • User manual with 20 recipes

At first glance, you might be concerned with the construction since it is plastic and can be found at the lower end of the market in terms of cost, but surprisingly, the Hamilton Beach 68330N has a decent solid construction, even your child will be able to use!

What I like most is that it can make up to 4 quarts of frozen yogurt. This is double compared to what the Cuisinart above can make, and is huge compared to most products of its type. You will find this useful if you have a big family. The manufacturer says it will take about 20 to 40 minutes to finish making yogurt. But from what I have experienced, it usually does the job in 30 minutes.

As for cleaning, I do not think it can get any easier on a machine this cheap! It’s a simple process which doesn’t leave you deconstructing and reconstructing your machine, and will be done in a few minutes.

The Hamilton Beach 68330N is easy to use. Even if you have never made yogurt before, you will be up on your feet with the easy to follow manual. And as a bonus, it comes with 20 recipes, what more could you ask for from a machine this cheap?

Conclusion

Either option above would be excellent for a hobbyist looking to make frozen yogurt at home, and provide delicious desserts and treats! Of course, the capacity is one of the main differences, along with the looks, if you want something bigger, the Hamilton Beach is the one for you, but for a better looking model in your kitchen, stick to the ICE.

Best Large Capacity Yogurt Makers

ym260

If you are looking to make big quantities of yogurt to feed a big family or for events, or you’re just looking to avoid the yogurt makers that have lots of smaller jars or containers, we’ve compiled the best for you! We are going to take a look at some of the best large capacity yogurt makers in this article, as well as being big, we’ve made sure that these are high quality too and will do a great job for you.

Euro Cuisine YM260 Yogurt Maker

Elegance is one word you can use to describe this machine, but also, usability and efficiency. It makes homemade yogurt easily and the results are amazing, plus it doesn’t look nasty in your kitchen!

Features

  • 2-quart capacity
  • BPA free yogurt container
  • Serving bowl
  • Stainless Steel thermometer
  • Cheesecloth bag for making your own cheese at home.

The Euro Cuisine YM260 has a single 2-quart container enabling you to make enough yogurt for the whole week, or for a lot of people. It is extremely useful if you have a large family. Additionally, this is easy and quick to clean than the single jars. To simplify your work even further, it comes with a thermometer. Included is also a cheesecloth bag so you can even experiment with making cheese. It also has a time reminder. This is nothing more than a series of number which you use to remember to turn off the machine. The Euro Cuisine YM260 is a great yogurt maker that many will appreciate.

Yogourmet Electric Yogurt Maker

Another large capacity yogurt maker is the Yogourmet. It is simple in terms of looks. It does not have any scary or difficult features, but the good thing is that it does make great yogurt and in large quantities.

Features

  • 2-quart yogurt container (BPA free)
  • Cheese strainer
  • Instructions booklet
  • Thermometer
  • Dishwasher safe to make washing easy

The Yogourmet is very unique. It uses a water bath system to provide heat to the yogurt. This provides for even heating resulting in same consistency. The yogurt is noticeably thick and it is great than that you can get from a store or even other yogurt makers. It also comes with a thermometer so you are always sure if it is at the right temperature all the time.

The instructions booklet it comes with is another awesome addition. It also has recipes for you to experiment with too.

If I were to be given a chance to change something about this yogurt maker, then I would go for the lid. Since it is not transparent, it is tough to see how things are progressing or you risk disturbing the whole process. Once you get a hang of it, this isn’t a problem.

I love this yogurt maker. The water bath system it uses is absolutely revolutionary. And because of how great it is at making yogurt, I would urge anyone to take a look at this first.

Conclusion

The two options above provide you with everything you need to make big quantities of yogurt. Both are very good quality and come with high ratings on online retailers, with reviews generally being very positive. It is possible to pick up yogurt makers which are cheaper than the two above, but they won’t do the job anywhere near as well.

Euro Cuisine YM100 Automatic Yogurt Maker Review

eurocuisineIf you are one of those looking to move away from store bought yogurt that has unhealthy ingredients added, then you should be in the market to get a yogurt maker. If you are, lets introduce you to the Euro-Cuisine YM100. It one of the most popular makers and you simply cannot help but consider getting one.

Features

The YM100 is a simple machine without too many bells and whistles. But that does not deter it from performing its job. Here are the features:

  • Has seven 6-ounce glass jars with lids
  • Comes with an automatic timer
  • 8-year warranty is included

Impressions

The Euro Cuisine YM100 is an improvement of its little brother the YM80 which costs less. Everything between the two is similar except that the YM100 has an automatic timer which is a very useful feature.

To use the machine, you first prepare you yogurt using whatever recipe you want. And when it is done, you take it and load it up in the glass jars, after which you put them in the maker. You then set the timer and press the Red light. The light will turn on showing that the machine is in operation. It is a really simple process and easy to use machine.

This is where the timer comes handy. You can, for example, set it at 8 hours and go to bed. When the 8 hours is up, the unit will simply turn off. As you can see, this makes it so easy and less tiresome to use.

One other thing you will definitely love is the even consistency of the yogurt. Taste will largely depend on your recipe, but overall, the yogurt from the YM100 is much better than one you can buy from a store. Getting to the jars, they are made of glass which is obviously better than plastic. They come with lids you can use to store your yogurt. They are also very handy if you want to take some on the road, in a lunch box for example.

The jars are dishwasher safe. However, if you want to make your yogurt in a bigger quantity, and don’t need individual flavors and variations, they can be substituted with a bigger container

What Others Are Saying

Checking people’s reviews clearly shows that many are happy with this yogurt maker. For example, on amazon the yogurt maker has a mighty impressive rating of 4.3 out of 5. This is from more than 500 customers who have bought the product. Many praise it for being so easy to use; producing quality yogurt all the time; for its easiness to clean.

Conclusion

Euro Cuisine is a well-known name in as far as yogurt makers are concerned. The YM100 has been built on the same reputation of great quality at an affordable price. If you are looking for an excellent product that will get the job done without any fuss, I do not see how you can go wrong with this one. There is a reason it is one of the top selling models on the market today. This comes with our top recommendation.

The Best Yogurt Maker For Making Soy Yogurt

eurocuisineEverybody has their preference when comes to what type of yogurt to make. For many people, soy yogurt is the best option, whether it is due to dietary restrictions or just preference. But store bought soy yogurt, as you might already know, is expensive, and often not as nice as home made. Making it at home is not only much cheaper, it can be tastier and let you experiment too.

So the question is, which yogurt maker is the best for soy yogurt? With so many models on the market, we’ve tried to help you make a decision. The Cuisinart CYM-100 is the BEST model for making Soy yogurt. Check it out here. Our reasons why are listed below…

Making Soy Yogurt

Producing your own soy yogurt is easy. You first need to have soy milk. This can be bought at a store or made from a soy milk maker. You will also need a starter which can also be bought in many stores.

With those two in hand, the next thing to do is making a choice about which yogurt maker is the top option for soy yogurt. As long as it can make other types of yogurts without problems, most yogurt makers will make simple work of Soy, and not have any problems, but there are some that do the job better than others.

My Recommendations

The Euro Cuisine YM100

Not all yogurt makers cut it when it comes to making yogurt. However, there are others with a track record of producing great soy yogurt like the Euro-Cuisine YM100.

It represents good value for you money. It is affordable and makes soy yogurt without any problems. I would have gone with the cheaper YM80, but the lack of a timer might put you off, with a timer you can set it up and forget about it until it is done.

The YM100 comes with 7 glass jars that are dishwasher safe. Cleaning them is nothing to really worry about and if you want, you can get a bigger container which fits in the maker nicely. Having seven jars is also great for making individual servings and playing around with flavours.

The automatic shut-off timer is really handy if you forget to turn the unit off when fermentation is done. The only downside is that this does not always work if you forget to take your yogurt out and refrigerate it after 12 hours. Heat trapped by the lid has been known to keep on cooking the yogurt. This is fine if you’re able to remember to take it out, but there is an even more convenient option.

Cuisinart CYM-100

To avoid that problem, you can get the Cuisinart CYM-100. The yogurt can stay in it for as long as it can without being over-fermented. This is because of its cooling system that kicks in once fermentation is done. The CYM-100 comes with one large container instead of jars as in the Euro-Cuisine YM100.

If you’re looking for a cheaper model, you could go with the Euro-Cuisine YM80, even if it does lack a timer. You might also want to consider the Dash Yogurt Maker. It is among the few low-end makers that produce great soy yogurt. This one too has a single large container which will make good quantities of product with ease. It doesn’t boast all the features of some of the others but that isn’t a problem for many of us.

And as a bonus, I find the Dash Yogurt Maker nice to look at. You will surely have no trouble putting it on your table for everyone to see.

So there, you have it. For your convenience, here is the list of makers I recommend for soy yogurt:

Euro-Cuisine YM100
Cuisinart CYM-100
Euro-Cuisine YM80
Dash Yogurt Maker

I hope you found this article helpful. Making soy yogurt at home is a nice way to look after your health and if you’re on a diet that requires you to have soy milk there is no reason you should be restricted. Hopefully you have just discovered some of the top yogurt makers that will help you achieve yogurt perfection!

Yogurberry No Electricity Fermentation Homemade Yogurt Maker Review

yogurberry

Who said you always need electricity to make yogurt? If for some reason you cannot use electricity or want to stay eco-friendly, or simply prefer this method, but still fancy a cup of homemade yogurt, then let me introduce you to the Yogurberry yogurt Maker. It is probably one of the most fun yogurt makers on the market and provides excellent results.

Features

Here they are in detail:

  • 1 cup
  • Heating frame (which also looks like a cup)
  • The body with a lid
  • A transparent inner lid

Impressions

I find the design quite playful although they call it fancy. It looks more like a food package, contrary to container shaped yogurt makers that have flooded the market. I know there are some who might not like this, but I think it is cute.

Coming to the color, it continues being fancy. It comes in pink or white. Whatever will suit your taste, go with it. But in my opinion, I think the colors are inclined to the feminine side.

Using It

Like the name suggests, the Yogurberry does not need electricity to function. Now this in itself a great feature. There are other families who do not live on the grid or have unreliable electricity. Likewise, anyone who for some reason does not want to use electricity will find the Yogurberry useful.

Making yogurt is quite easy and fun thanks to its design. Basically, here are the steps.

  • Have your drinking yogurt and milk ready
  • Mix the yogurt and milk in the cup and close the lid.
  • Place the heat frame in the body and pour in hot water
  • Place your cup into the heat frame
  • Take the inner lid and close the heat frame
  • Take the outer lid and close the body
  • Leave it for 8 to 10 hours

That is how the process works. As you can see, it is very simple.

As for the yogurt this maker produces, it is surprisingly great. You can even use your own flavors and it will still turn out great.

However, there are some limitations. Firstly, there is only one cup included and it cannot hold a huge amount of yogurt. If you have a big family, you are out of luck. Unfortunately, you cannot get a bigger size cup that will fit in the body.

This will be very appealing to people who make yogurt for themselves casually. Again, it will be very appealing to kids because of its fancy design and ease of use. And talking about its ability to operate without electricity, it might be a great tool to take out for camping (but you will have to drink your yogurt instantly as it needs to be kept in a refrigerator).

As for cleaning, this is the easiest. You can do it in less than a minute or two.

Conclusion

If you are looking for a simple yogurt maker that is fun and easy to use, look no further than the Yogurberry. Its ability to operate without electricity is a bonus. But be sure you know what you are getting as making yogurt for the whole family is not the best.

Impressions

By just looking at the advertisements, you would certainly think this is the yogurt maker to raise the bar in the industry (and it does raise the bar a bit). From the looks of it, you would say this maker comes with a timer. But sadly, it doesn’t. I know there are other great yogurt makers without timers on the market. In addition to this, the maker comes with a manual. If you are new to making yogurt, you might want to gain a basic knowledge before you read too much into it. As a solution, simply search on the internet on how to use a yogurt maker.

mykonos2But despite a couple of shortcomings, I must admit, this is one of the best Greek yogurt makers on the market. Using it is quite easy once you get the hang of it. And the yogurt it makes is of top quality all the time. Considering how expensive Greek yogurt is, this is one you should add to your arsenal, as it can even save you money in the long run. If you are into looks, I find the Oster CKSTYM1012 Mykonos quite elegant and even has an LCD display on the front.

And if you have a big family, this is definitely for you. It can make you more yogurt than the trusted YM100. It comes with six 7oz glass jars and one 17oz plastic container. Cleaning these is a breeze. For fans of Greek yogurt, the Oster CKSTYM1012 is absolutely perfect for you. A Greek yogurt strainer is already included. When you are done making your yogurt and want to keep your pieces safe, you can simply fit them nicely inside the maker, which is a great storage solution.

What Others Are Saying

Euro Cuisine GY50 Greek Yogurt Maker Review

euro greekIf you have had a chance to try Greek yogurt, it is likely that you thoroughly enjoyed it. However, the cost of purchasing one in a store is on the steep side. A solution, therefore, is to buy a yogurt maker. But not every maker out there can make Greek yogurt. Investing in a Greek yogurt strainer, like the Euro Cuisine GY50 is a smart decision, and this is a very affordable model, representing value for money, and it can even pay for yourself in the money you save on store-bought greek yogurt.

You may think this will make the yogurt from scratch (I did and so did others). However, it does not. It is simply a strainer kit that gets rid of whey leaving you with a thick and fairly solid yogurt, better known as Greek yogurt or cheese yogurt. This means you can use it with store-bought yogurt or yogurt you have made with a different yogurt maker.

Specifications

Here are its specifications.

  • 2qts strainer with lid
  • Container for collecting whey
  • BPA free components
  • Instructions and recipes included

Using It

Making Greek yogurt is easy provided you already have the yogurt. While you can use a cloth, by far, the GY50 will give you the best results. And there are not many Greek yogurt strainer kits competing with it.

To begin with, this comes with a large strainer that can hold up to 2qts at a time which is enough to take a whole batch. This significantly reduces the time needed to work on making Greek yogurt.

Like I said, the name is kind of misleading. To make you make your Greek yogurt on the GY50, you should have the yogurt in hand, homemade or store-bought. What you do then is pour it into the strainer and keep it in a refrigerator. After 6 to 10 hours, your Greek yogurt will be ready. Now here is where the GY50 proves that it is the best. As you transfer the yogurt into a bowl, it just comes out in one piece. This is a dream on some other pricier models.

The only worrisome feature is the delicate mesh. If you get aggressive with it, it won’t live to make more Greek yogurt tomorrow. But with proper care, it can last many years. Fortunately, Euro Cuisine customer service is outstanding. A couple of customers who had their strainers damaged had them replaced at no extra charge.

Cleaning is one feature not to be overlooked. The GY50 is easy to clean with the mesh as the only problem. Try to avoid using metal objects or anything you feel might damage it. Another feature I find really useful is the instructions and recipe manual. It is clearly written and you will not have a hard time understanding it. All in all, the Greek yogurt this makes is simply great.

What Others are Saying

With a rating of 4.5 out of 5 on Amazon, this product is surely a winner. Many expressed concern on the mesh. As a matter of fact, it is the only issue on the whole strainer kit. And by reading the reviews, it is obvious Euro Cuisine has great customer service.

Conclusion

If you are into Greek yogurt, getting your hands on the Euro Cuisine GY50 is the right step in the right direction. This maker produces the best Greek yogurt easily. The delicate mesh is not a deal breaker in any way, it simply needs careful handling. And hey, did I said it is extremely cheap, offering great value for money?

Euro Cuisine YMX650 Yogurt Maker Review

eurocuisineymx

The Euro Cuisine YMX650 is one of the most sought after and best selling yogurt makers. Its range of features and price makes buying it a tempting proposition, and looking at the quality of yogurt it can make, many have a hard time choosing between this and other models.

Making your own yogurt at home is beneficial in many ways. Most importantly, you have control of what ingredients to use, are able to create a healthy snack and avoid some additives that you may not want to consume, and you save money than if you were to be buying in store.

Features

The YMX650 is not entirely different in terms of features with other models from Euro Cuisine. As a matter of fact, there are only a few differences. Here are the features in detail.

  • Comes with Seven 6-ounce glass jars
  • Has a high quality LCD display
  • Has a 15 hours timer for your convenience
  • Comes complete with a thorough and helpful instruction booklet.
  • Generous 3-year warranty

How It Performs

Using the YMX650 is really easy. It only has two buttons for controlling everything. You can set the timer depending on your tastes, ideally between 6 to 12 hours. The maximum amount of time you can set is 15 hours.

To sweeten the deal, it has an LCD display. Despite being simple, it adds a nice touch to the whole machine and it makes reading a bit easy since it is backlit. When in operation, it counts down until the set time is over and it makes a beep as notification.

The automatic timer is really handy since you might be preoccupied with other things or may have gone out of the house and you will have nothing to worry about knowing the timer will turn the unit off when it is done.

Another feature I liked is that the lids of the jars have dates. As insignificant as this might seem, it is very useful. It helps you keep track of when the yogurt was made. It is particularly handy if you make yogurt regularly.

Since the YMX650 comes with only 7 jars, bigger families are better off purchasing more jars to keep a steady flow of yogurt. And if you want, you can buy a bigger Pyrex 7-Cup Glass Bowl that easily fits in the maker. It is also important for making Greek yogurt.

Coming to the yogurt itself, the YMX650 does a commendable job. It is better than many of the yogurts you can buy in a store, and of course you have more control over what goes in it! Included in the box is an instruction booklet that also contains recipes.

Cleaning

Cleaning is not difficult at all. The jars are made of glass and are dishwasher safe. But if you are feeling a bit lazy washing all the jars, you can purchasing a bigger container.

What Others Are Saying

Checking on Amazon proves that this is one of the best yogurt makers on the market. It has been rated 4.6 out of 5. This is better than the 4.3 stars earned by the YM100 which is the most popular yogurt maker.

Conclusion

If you are searching for a great yogurt maker, then the YMX650 could as well be your answer. It has great features at an affordable price. But most importantly, it is one of the machines that produces great homemade yogurt.

Best Homemade Yogurt Recipes

epicaIf you’re a fan of yogurt and add it to the grocery list each week, you should consider making your own yogurt. In addition to being cheaper than store-bought yogurt, homemade yogurt is often healthier – it cuts out sugar and artificial ingredients – and tastes better. You likely have everything you need to make a batch of yogurt in your kitchen already, so let’s get started! You may not get the consistency you are looking for the first few times you try it, but don’t despair. Practice makes perfect! In time you will figure out what works and tastes best for you and you might even start to get creative with your own recipes. Here are a few basic recipes to get you started. Enjoy!

Basic Yogurt – Yield: 1 half gallon

Ingredients: Half a gallon of milk, 2-3 tbsp of plain yogurt
Directions:
Create a double boiler using two stock pots and bring the milk to 185°F, stirring constantly to avoid a top layer forming.
Cool the milk to 110°F using a cold water bath, stirring again to avoid a top layer forming.
Pour the plain yogurt into the milk and stir well.
Cover and place on a heating pad and leave undisturbed for 7 hours*.
Remove from the heating pad and stir well.
Refrigerate overnight to completely chill.
*If you prefer a more tart yogurt, incubate the yogurt longer. I suggest you follow this recipe the first time you make yogurt and adjust the incubation time when you know what you like.

Greek Yogurt

Ingredients: 1 gallon milk (any kind), ¼ c plain yogurt, honey (optional), fresh fruit (optional)
Directions:
Reserve ¼ c of milk and pour the rest into a large pot. Boil.
Once milk begins to boil, shut off heat and let sit.
While milk is cooling, mix together yogurt and reserved ¼ c of milk.
When milk reaches 100°F, mix in yogurt and reserved milk mixture.
Mix gently and thoroughly, then cover and wrap in a towel.
Leave pot in the oven (not turned on) overnight or 16 hours.*
Using a cheese cloth, drain yogurt inside a colander.
Every few hours, squeeze the cheese cloth or use a spoon to stir and help it drain faster. Yogurt is complete in 6 hours.
Add honey and/or fresh fruit, if desired.
*If you stop at this step, you will have regular homemade yogurt. Continue with step 7 to make Greek yogurt.

Strawberry Yogurt

Ingredients: 1 c water, 1 lb frozen strawberries, 1 c sugar
Directions:
Dissolve the sugar into the water in a heavy saucepan on medium heat
Add the strawberries and keep a low boil for ten minutes
Strain the strawberries and save the syrup
Add ¼ c syrup (more or less depending on how much flavor you want in your yogurt) into a pint of warm yogurt and mix well
Strain out the whey
If you are adding the strawberry flavor to homemade yogurt, it is best to add the strawberry syrup to the yogurt while the yogurt is still warm and before it sets so it can maintain a thicker consistency.

Epica Electric Yogurt Maker Review

epicaBuying and eating store-bought yogurt can be a pain: in addition to being fairly expensive, these yogurts are always chock full of sugars and artificial ingredients, negating a good deal of the health benefits that are the very reason we buy yogurt in the first place. So what’s a girl to do? I recently came across some articles discussing the health (and cost) benefits of making your own yogurt. I was intrigued, but after seeing that the process can take up to twenty hours depending on the recipe, I was dismayed. I did try to make my own batch three times without an electric maker but got very discouraged: I never got the consistency I wanted and it was a real pain to heat the milk and maintain multiple different temperatures for a very specific set of time. When my yogurt came out and tasted a little below average, I disappointed to have wasted so much time. I was still interested in the health benefits of homemade yogurt, however, so I decided to give the Epica Electric Yogurt Maker a try.

Epica Yogurt Maker

This yogurt maker comes with seven 6-ounce jars so you can make multiple flavors at once and your serving sizes are already placed conveniently in their own jars. The timer on the lid of the maker can be set anywhere between six and twelve hours so you can set the “cook” time to match your desired yogurt consistency. Using the electric yogurt maker ensures that your yogurt will always be at the right temperature and required settings for perfect and healthy yogurt. There’s no need to constantly check on your yogurt’s progress – let the electric maker take care of it all!

Summary of Features:

  • 4.5/5 star average review on Amazon
  • Works in 6-12 hours
  • Seven jars to make different flavors and variations
  • Three year warranty from the manufacturer
  • Designed to stay at the perfect temperature for making yogurt
  • Works with milk that requires no pre-boiling (making this one of the easiest to use yogurt makers going)

My first batch came out perfect, better than store-bought yogurt, and it could not have been easier to make! Preparing the batch for the maker took less than ten minutes, such a difference from the hour I spent trying to make mine by hand. All I had to do was boil the milk, stir in the starter culture after the milk cooled, and filled the jars. The instruction manual was a dream for a first-timer and was much clearer and easier to follow than some of the make-by-hand recipes I had been finding on the Internet. I made it after dinner and by the time I woke up the next morning I had fresh yogurt ready to go! I was shocked when I tasted it – that was real yogurt. It made me really appreciate how full the store-bought yogurts are of artificial flavors. When I became more comfortable with the electric maker I began experimenting with different flavors and I could not be happier. One gallon of milk will make three batches (or twenty-one jars) of the yogurt so you can experiment with countless variations of flavor.

The maker itself weighs less than four pounds and is less than nine-and-a-half inches in diameter, which makes it the perfect size to either sit on your counter and not take up much space or store in a cabinet to easily pull out whenever it is needed. In addition to the instruction manual, the yogurt maker also comes with a variety of ingredients to guide you and let me tell you, they are delicious! The yogurt jars are all dishwasher-safe, making cleanup even easier (if that’s possible) and if you break a jar you can easily replace it with a baby food jar or something of similar size. I would absolutely recommend this product to anybody looking to find a healthier, cheaper solution to store-bought yogurt but does not want to devote hours to making their own.
