Features and Looks

Cuisinart CYM-100 Electronic Yogurt Maker is a practical kitchen appliance that can make your favourite yogurt in no time. But let’s start with the basic things first.

The maker consists of several parts. It has a base or a housing, control panel, yogurt container, lid for the container, another lid for the housing and you get a little scoop that goes with it. The housing is pretty big and you can make up to 50 ounces of yogurt at one time.

It couldn’t be easier to use and is a simple case of switching on and letting it do its business. In terms of producing the yogurt itself:

First you need to put all the ingredients in the yogurt container and put on the matching lid. Then place the container into the base, or the housing and close the other lid as well. Plug in the maker. The default fermentation time is 8 hours. You are offered the option to increase or decrease that time depending on your preferences. Once you choose your time you can press the start button on the control panel. The maker will start the fermentation process and it will start counting the time.

Cooling mode is perhaps what sets this apart from other yogurt makers and ensures no overcooking occurs due to the heat in some machines remaining after shut off. When the fermentation is finished the maker will automatically switch into cooling mode and it will stay in that mode until you turn off the maker. When you decide to turn off the maker you should hold the stop button for about three seconds. Once you turn off the maker you can remove the yogurt container from the housing. You can then place the yogurt into the refrigerator for further use or use the scope to serve the freshly made yogurt.

After you make the yogurt you can play with different flavours. It is recommended that you wait 6 hours from when the cooling started before you add additional ingredients. If you decide to add fruit to your yogurt you can store it for longer time, as fruit doesn’t harm the yogurt. If you decide to add different syrup then you might want to do that on smaller portions rather than on the entire yogurt.


This is an excellently reviewed yogurt maker and though it costs a little more than some of the other models out there, it is seen as an elite version, offering features such as the cooling system and stainless steel housing. It is a luxury model which won’t restrict anything you want to do with your yogurt, it has a big capacity, and does the job perfectly every time.

You can mix and match and create your own recipes any time you want. Once you buy this maker your opportunities are endless. This little helper will make sure you always have freshly produced yogurt that will satisfy your daily needs of probiotics and calcium. So you can be healthy and become expert in the kitchen at the same time.
