I did some research online and read people's review then decided to buy this soy milk machine. I know all the time that soy is very good to people's health especially for women so I had great expectation that this thing would work out. I ordered online from their own website and got it after 1 week. It was much bigger that I had imagined. Back in China, my mom used to use a handy soymaker. Anyway, I used it 3 times and it was good. Just that the soymilk didn't taste as fully cooked. Also washing the machine is a bit complicated since the head (where the electric parts are)is undetachable from the grinding part. So you need to hold the heavy head when washing the grinding part. You need to be very careful not to splash water onto the head. It's a bit tricky.
At the 4th usage, it only heated up without grinding at all so we pretty much harvest whole boiled beans. I called the company to fix it but they said I have to pay the mailing. Even though I found online that they have a retailer in my city but they insisted that I mail it back. Also if I still decide to return it later after fixing it, the 30 day warranty won't be extended. It still starts from the date of purchase, not from the date after you fix it. So I decided to return it for refund anyway. I paid $20+ for the mailing.
Another thing I found out about the manual is that, there is inconsitency among different language versions. One version says "push the grind button 3 times", the other versions says "push the grind button 4 times". I don't know which one to follow.
It's quite a lesson to learn. Well, I'll have to look for my soy machine again. I didn't the machine from Amazon so I wouldn't know if the experience would be different if I did.Read more ›
Our house use to buy about six or seven gallons of soymilk per week (I'm Asian and actually liked soymilk more than milk before I was became a vegan); and while this soymilk maker is handy, I was disappoint at how much soymilk is actually made given the size of the product.
When I was first washing the soymilk maker, I found the filter cup to be hardest to detach and wash but it's a little easier with practice.
The soymilk itself is more grainy than I'd expected given how smooth I've read it is in other reviews. I think I've read somewhere on the site that if smoother soymilk is desired, a gold filter should be used but I don't know which to buy so I just filter it again with the broken filter cup (so I don't have to worry about clogging) and that helps.
The user manuel is really helpful and it even came with an instructional DVD for lazy readers like my brother.
The head is a bit heavier than I would like and is tricky to wash but it has gotten easier with time.
My mom loves drinking it because she can control the flavor (or lack of). I experiment with blending the soymilk with different fruits [blueberries and soymilk don't mix well and one should drink it instead of leaving it waiting around]; the results are better than expected.
Overall, this product makes it easy to have soymilk and I think it is worth it. I won't write about all the good points because the list is too long and the soyquick website has all that.
The cleaning part is the only thing that annoys me :( If you don't wash it well (almost immediately), the brew basket will get clogged and you'll end up getting soy and water (separate), not soymilk. I use bottle cleaner or toothbrush to clean the mesh basket. If your basket gets clogged up (more than 35% of the holes are clogged) you can immerse it in Bleach (100%, not diluted, this fix was recommended by their customer support) It worked and I didn't really smell the bleach after a good wash afterward :)
So I've had this machine for over two years now and it's still working and kicking! I also use the same old basket over and over too. I only used Bleach to clean it once when I didn't wash the basket immediately.
Just got back from a 7 months long business trip and started to use my beloved Soyquick again. Two batches came out too light to consume (like water) because I used "TOO MUCH" beans in the basket, I packed them down way too tight (hoping for very thick soymilk). Once I adjusted the amount of beans, the milk came out perfect and always...delicious! :) I still use the same pot and the same basket the came in the box!
