Product Description

Amazon.com

The Yogourmet Electric Yogurt Maker makes it easy for you to quit spending extra money on store-bought yogurts, yogurt cheeses, and cultured milks. Best of all, it helps you enjoy the rich, creamy texture and great taste associated with natural yogurt, along with a wide variety of health benefits. And you get the satisfaction of knowing exactly where your food is coming from.



A unique water-bath system provides consistent, ideal temperatures for yogurt making.


You simply need to select milk, cultures, and flavorings to get started. View larger.


Flavorful, natural ingredients help make homemade yogurts, yogurt cheese spreads, and cultured milks a healthy addition to your diet.


Versatile and Easy to Make
Whether you enjoy yogurt with granola in the morning, as a substitute for sour cream on your baked potatoes, as a snack on the go, or as an ingredient in baked goods, you understand the rich appeal of this versatile food. The Yogourmet Electric Yogurt Maker is designed to help you craft specialty yogurts using your choice of milk--for half the cost of store-bought yogurts.

This electric yogurt maker uses a unique water-bath system to maintain an ideal temperature for preparing yogurt that is healthy, safe, and the perfect texture. Featuring a precision thermometer marked with both and Fahrenheit and Celsius readings and a detailed set of instructions, this yogurt maker takes the guess work out of deciding when to add your yogurt starter to your preheated milk. It's fast, too--two quarts of yogurt take just four and a half hours to make.

You can choose to make one or two liters of yogurt at a time, and the inner container's special seal-tight lid will let you store your yogurt in the refrigerator for more than three weeks. When it's time to make a new batch, this container is dishwasher-safe for easy cleaning, and it is made of food-grade plastic that is PVC and BPA free. Additional inner containers can be purchased separately, making it easy to keep different types of yogurt on hand or start a new batch before the last one is gone. These reusable containers contribute to a green lifestyle by eliminating the disposable containers you would collect using store-bought yogurt.

Calcium-Rich, All-Natural, and Good for Digestion
Using your favorite fruits, jams, or flavorings, and your own milk, whether it's local organic milk or soy milk, ensures that your homemade yogurt is free of artificial colors and the strange tastes left behind by preservatives. This system can also be used to make soft yogurt cheeses, special cultured milks, and macrobiotic yogurts with casei bifidus acidophilus.

Having a great selection of homemade yogurts on hand is ideal for anyone keeping close track of what they eat, especially those on the "Specific Carbohydrate Diet." Plus yogurt is an easy-to-eat source of calcium and essential B vitamins. The fermentation process involved in making yogurt means that it contains lower levels of lactose compared with other dairy products, so even those who are sensitive to lactose can typically enjoy it.

For cheese making, this kit includes a specially designed cotton bag with an easy-to-fill opening and a cord, which makes it simple to close the bag and hang it.

The Yogourmet Electric Yogurt Maker is backed by a one-year warranty.

What's in the Box
Outer container with lid, inner container with lid, thermometer, cotton bag, and 12-page instruction manual.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good and bad features; overpriced for what it is November 18, 2008
By msyoga
Size Name:2 Quarts
What's good:
1. Large capacity, can make two batch sizes.
2. Water bath for even heating.
3. Digital thermometer.
4. Cheesecloth bag included for making yogurt-cheese.
5. Avoids the hassle of little single-serving containers.

What's bad:
1. No way to view the yogurt's progress without significantly disturbing it. When you're dealing with incubation periods anywhere from 4 hours to 24 hours, a window would be nice to give you an idea.
2. Exploding lid. I've actually had both lids blow off while incubating from the gases created by the culture, as others have mentioned, and found them halfway across the counter. At best, you have to be careful when removing the lid even when you're ready. When you lift the jar out of the machine, you have to catch the edge of the lid to lift it out -- and that can cause problems and mess if it pops too easily.
3. No time indicator, nor any other kind of indicator. I also have the Donvier maker with small serving cups, and it has a digital timer with automatic shutoff. Not necessary, but would be a nice feature for this price. You need to actually be there to shut it off (and make sure the lid doesn't blow off midway through).
4. The batch jar it comes with is plastic instead of glass. It does have a tight seal, however, and keeps the yogurt fresh for weeks.
5. It does get very hot. I don't incubate more than 8 hours, but have tested the water and found it at 123 degrees at around 3 hours.
6. For this price, you basically get a plastic vat that heats up and has a light to indicate it's on. That's it. This machine does not remove any of the guesswork. I've been making yogurt for years, and I've still screwed up many batches with this one. When you're growing bacteria, there's little room for error.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice thick yogurt, used starter February 25, 2008
Size Name:2 Quarts|Verified Purchase
I have made three batches of yogurt with a 24hr-ferment time and have been very pleased. I did use Yogourmet starter and have had thick, creamy yogurt each time. I like that the yogurt maker comes with a thermometer for when the milk is heated prior to making the yogurt.
My yogurt maker does not get very warm to the touch, even after 24 hours, but I will have to check that with a thermometer the next time I make yogurt (tonight) because there have been concerns voiced here that the yogurt gets too hot for the probiotics to survive.
I have been completely happy with this product so far!
Ok--news flash update--I have been checking the yogurt with a thermometer and it has been fermenting at the same temp for 19hrs which is about 110F. The Yogourmet therm. has a green line on it and that is right where the temp. staying--well under 120F. I doubt it will suddenly heat up in the next sev. hours. I AM happy with this yogurt maker!

5.0 out of 5 stars Glass Jar for Yogourmet Yogurt Maker December 29, 2011
By R. Day
Size Name:2 Quarts|Verified Purchase
Desiring a GLASS JAR, after looking at several stores, I found a nice heavy glass jar that works very well in place of the original plastic container. It is the Anchor Hocking 1/2 gallon Heritage Jar (this jar style used to be called apocathary jar). The base of the jar fits perfectly (using lower water fill mark) and the jar has a nice lip making it very easy to lift out without slipping. The sides are nearly straight and make it easy to get the contents out, too. The glass lid will not fit inside with the incubation cover on so I use the original plastic lid to incubate then the glass lid for storage, or I make 1.5 cups less and use the glass lid upside down. See uploaded picture of glass jar. In WA state, I purchased the jar at Fred Myers store.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yogurt Recipe & info for the SCD Diet! August 16, 2011
By D.D.
Size Name:2 Quarts
I purchased the Yogourmet bundle for $57.60 in July 2011 and I still love it! Update- As of December 2013 I haven't had a single batch fail. With the other items that came with it, it was very reasonably priced. Having no timer and a large 2 quart batch container is perfect for making small or large amounts of a long fermenting yogurt like I do. (I make 24 hour SCD Yogurt. SCD is the "Specific Carbohydrate Diet" for people with colon issues, autism, etc. Books and info can be found online)

This yogurt maker is built simple- there isn't much to go wrong with it. Plug it in and it simply heats a small amount of water that surrounds the batch container. I love the large 2 quart batch container but you can make small batches too. I prefer to wash one large container over several tiny ones.

There is no timer, no automatic shut off & no thermostat so you need to be around when time is up. For long fermenting yogurts you'll watch your temp closely the first few batches until you get a feel for it, but later you'll only check a few times per batch.

One reported problem is that the YOGOURMET gets too HOT for 24 hour yogurt.... NO PROBLEM! Purchase a Lamp Cord with a Dimmer switch- here's an example of one- Lutron TT 300NLH WH Credenza Dimmer White

After the center has reached the desired temp (after about 4-6 hours), use the Dimmer Lamp Cord to reduce the power slightly to maintain the perfect temp. I made a pen mark on the slider where I found it to be just right. (When checking your yogurt temp make sure your thermometer is accurate, I had one that was 15 deg off & had to buy a new one).
