Product Description

Product Description

A foolproof way to make perfect yogurt every time. Will make up to 2 quarts of homemade yogurt in only 4.5 hours! Also it is the only yogurt maker that will make our exclusive Yogourmet CBA yogurt that contains L. Casei which can boost your immune system, and B. Bifidus which can help promote regularity. It can also be used to make fresh cheese, sour cream and buttermilk. Largest capacity yogurt maker available and the only one that uses a "water bath" system to create an even heating wall around the inner container to maintain the precise temperature necessary to allow the yogurt cultures to incubate fully and evenly. The result is a rich, creamy, healthy yogurt every time. Includes a detailed instruction booklet, thermometer and cheese strainer.


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 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.

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!

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.

I own the original 1970's yogourmet yogurt maker and it is still working like new (the only way to tell it's that old is the 'old style' power cord on it ;)

the thick walls of the unit allows for gentle heating and the water bath maintains a more even temperature all the way up the 'bucket' without overheating at the bottom.

when i run out of the yogourmet starter culture (which makes a tangy yogurt), i use a 6oz container of stoneyfield plain yogurt as a starter (which has 6 different cultures and yields a delicate flavor)

once you have discovered real yogurt (that is, tangy and a little runny), you will never be able to eat that overly sweet, wall paper glue of a concoction american dairy companys parade as yogurt.

The product is great, makes yogurt making really easy. However the water in the basin gets too hot. If it is culturing for more than 10 hours the water gets too hot to sustain the good bacteria. to do a 24 hour culture you need to replace the water several times. And caution if you use the CBA starter, do not put the water in the basin with it plugged in until you are ready to put the yogurt in, the water will heat too fast. This culture needs to gradually reach a little over a 100 degrees and not go into it right away.

Prior to purchasing the Yogourmet Electric Yogurt Maker, I had never made yogurt before. I saw this on sale at Amazon and decided now was the time to get started. My first batch turned out well, and I am anxious to start trying out adding fruit and other extras.

However...I was slightly disappointed because I thought buying a yogurt maker would mean that all I would need to do is dump together the ingredients in the yogurt maker, turn it on, and wait. Instead, there turned out to be several steps: heat the milk on the stovetop to 180F, wait for the milk to cool down to 112F, and add some kind of thickener to the milk if desired (such as powdered milk or unflavored gelatin). None of these steps were hinted at in the product description. The purpose of the yogurt maker, apparently, is to then keep this mixture held at the appropriate temperature for several hours to allow the yogurt to form.

Now, I'm not complaining that I needed to do a little work in the kitchen...I certainly don't mind spending the time. My point is simply this: If you are buying this yogurt maker thinking that it does all the work for you, note that it does not. It IS very useful...I would not want to figure out another way to maintain the desired temperature for 4 or 5 hours. I DO recommend it. Just know that it's not a "put-in-the-ingredients-and-forget-about-it" kind of device.
