Product Description

Amazon.com

Consisting of a plastic container and a stainless-steel, fine-mesh strainer, this simple unit converts 3 cups of yogurt into 1 cup of thick, creamy yogurt cheese in about 24 hours of refrigeration. (Thickening continues for 24 hours, though a thinner yogurt cheese results in as little as 2 hours.) The yogurt cheese then becomes a healthful, calcium-rich, low-fat alternative to cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, and even whipping cream. It can be used as a spread, in salad dressings, to top baked potatoes, mixed with fruit, and to make cheesecake. The unit works by allowing the whey (liquid) in yogurt to drain away, leaving the curds behind. The container is dishwasher-safe and seals to prevent odor transfer while it's in the refrigerator. Simple instructions and recipes for using yogurt cheese are included. --Fred Brack

Product Description

The Complete Yogurt Cheese Maker

alt

Yogurt cheese is a delicious low fat substitute for cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream or whipping cream. Just add yogurt and the unique patented design produces yogurt cheese in 2 to 24 hours.

Yogurt is actually composed of coagulated particles called curds which are suspended in a watery liquid called whey. As the whey is drained off in the strainer, the remaining curd becomes a thick cheese-like spread. The Sealed container prevents odor transfer and provides storage.

This yogurt cheese makes delicious dips, salad dressings, sandwich spreads, even low fat cheesecakes. Spread it on toast, muffins or bagels, or use it on top of potatoes. Serve yogurt cheese plain, or flavor with fruit, sugar or vanilla for a sweeter taste.

A great product, well make and easy to use and clean.
Forbzilla
Takes up less space in the fridge, cleans up very easily, more sanitary, and the sealed container keeps out refrigerator odors.

All you need to do is pour the yogurt into the mesh and drain out the whey after a few hours - that's it!

So, I stole it from the Yo-cheese folks - I bought their cookbook!
This is the simplest and best device for making yogurt cheese. It makes yogurt "cream" in 2 hours, and yogurt cheese stiff enough to make a cheesecake overnight.
A few details. If you fill the device full of yogurt, you need to dump the whey after about 1/2 hour as it gets full. After you have drained the yogurt, empty it by up-ending it into a bowl with a larger mouth than the device, otherwise you waste some of the cheese scraping it out with a spoon.
I use the yogurt cheese to extend mayonaise and sour cream. I've made a lovely low-fat cheesecake with it, mixing it it 2/1 ratio with neufchatel cheese. I have used it in white sauces, and it makes them creamy and yummy!
We bought this to incorporate yogurt cheese into our diet to got lower fat and reduce saturated fat because of cholesterol concerns. It's a great device and it's never not in use at our house!

After purchasing Donvier's yogurt maker, I thought this cheese maker would help me turn my softer yogurt into something thicker, a facsimile of the yogurt I tasted in Turkey and Greece. I was right -- after making my own preservative and additive free yogurt in my Donvier yogurt maker, I simply poured all eight containers into the compact cheesemaker, closed the lid and let it stay overnight in the refrigerator. Voila, the next morning, I had a perfectly creamy spread to put on my whole grain toast. I used Total Greek yogurt as my starter, so my yogurt very nearly reached the perfection I have been seeking: creamy, tart and no added sugar.

If you are a food perfectionist or simply do not like to buy any product loaded with corn syrup or any of the other usual suspects commonly used by manufacturers to up the taste for the general public, you will find purchasing the Donvier yogurt and cheese maker well worth the price.

I have made yogurt cheese in the past with cheesecloth and thought this item would make it easier, the reviews were good so I got two.

I noticed the mesh is rather large, my reusable coffee filter has very fine metal mesh. As I suspected my homemade yogurt ran through it. I lined it with a coffee filter and that solved the problem!! It's very easy to do, you can either use the round ones and trim them, or as I recently did, get the wraparound ones for perkulators.

When I feel it's thick enough I just tump it out into a storage container and I have a little pyrimid of greek yogurt or yogurt cheese, whatever you want to call it.

I've really aquired a taste for greek yogurt and this device makes it more economical to make. The large mesh actaully is better in my opinion because it's easy to clean and the use of the coffee filter makes it easy to dump the stuff in a bowl.

I only gave it 4 stars because it could be a little cheaper for all it is. Also instructions could be better and include the tip about the coffee filter, people that make their own yogurt frequently have a thinner more fragile product and the instructions do not even address that.

This makes a compact pyramid of tasty yogurt cheese or "laban." This is simply the yogurt curd with the watery portion removed. The unit consists of a sieve with a funny wave shape (dented on top) inside a plastic vessel. Dump in your regular yogurt and drain off the whey. You will end up with a cream cheese-like block of laban or yo-cheese. I wouldn't suggest Greek yogurt, but you can try it. Greek yogurt has already lost a lot of the whey via sieving. If you like Greek yogurt, you can take regular yogurt and stop the draining before it reaches the cream cheese stage. Voila, Greek yogurt.

A lump of this cheese, sweetened with a touch of powdered sugar and served with strawberries is a low-fat dessert if you use non-fat yogurt. The cheese also works as a sour-cream substitute. You can even make "coeur a la creme" with it. This works better than cheesecloth and colander or sieve. If you like yogurt cheese or are on a low-fat diet, this is a handy thing to have.

This little item works really well for making yogurt nice and thick. My primary purpose for this product is to make good Greek yogurt, which is much, much thicker than any store bought commercial brand. And, buying "Greek" yogurt from speciality food stores gets really expensive.

This product makes perfect Greek yogurt, in only about 3 or 4 hours. If you leave it overnight, you'll get perfect yogurt cheese. I prefer using Dannon whole milk plain yogurt, and the yogurt strainer holds almost a whole 32 oz container of it. If you wait about half an hour, you can put the rest of the Dannon into the stainer, since enough water (whey) has drained out by then. The results are perfect...delicous thick Greek yogurt each time, without the need for messy cheesecloth, coffee filters, paper towels, etc.

It's very sturdy and cleans up quite easily. I don't put it in the dishwasher, since I'm of the opinion that you shouldn't put anything in the dishwasher that you actually care about. And again, it's so easy to clean with a sponge and some soap, so there's no need to put in the dishwasher.

All in all, terrific product, works better than advertised.

Side note: Do NOT use Stoneybrook "Cream on Top" yogurt. That stuff is ALL water!!! When i poured this yogurt into the strainer, about half of it just ran through the filter almost immediately, since it's just so thin. This did not happen with Dannon, which is probably the thickest commercial yogurt around (but even the Dannon is nowhere near as thick as authentic Greek yogurt). The yogurt strainer works best with thicker yogurts, so stay away from those yogurts that make swishing sounds when you shake the container.
