Very good product. But it didn't last too long.,
This review is from: Joyoung CTS1048 Automatic Hot Soy Milk Maker
I bought this product about 18 months ago. It did an excellent job just as described by the manufacture. I was very satisfied and used it each morning (I mean every morning). I told all my friends that this is the best product ever made in China.
Well, 6 months later, the soymilk button (the right button) stopped working. So I used the middle button instead. This woked fine and I was still very satisfied.
Last week, the middle button quitted on me. So did the 3rd button.
If the product can last, say, over 3 years, I'd be satisfied.
If the product can last, say, over 5 years, I'd be satisfied, very.
However, if the product lasted only 1.5 yrs, I'm not satisfied. That's why I gave 3*s.
In conclusion, This product has a very good initial quality.
But it lacks reliability. It cannot maintain the good quality over time.
I hope that the manufacture put more effort in improving product reliability.

Even though it quit on you after a year and a half, it sounds like you saved a lot of money. I know I spend about $5 a week on soy milk, so that comes out to about $260 over the course of a year, $380 over a year and a half, so this machine would save me a lot of money not including the cost of soy beans.

Thanks for your comments. Most of the other reviews have been positive but you said that you used it everyday. That suggests that it's NOT a workhorse and that the quality seems iffy at best. I was going to purchase it and although I wouldn't use it as often as you did, I'm reconsidering. It might last me twice as long since I'd used it half as much. Maybe 3 times as long if I used it...well, you get the point. There are other brands that cost more but maybe they are made better. Again, I appreciate your input.

You make a valid point about the savings. But I should mention that with the purchase of a new soy milk maker the savings diminish quite a bit for the time used. Still, I see your point.
However, since the quality of the buttons are suspect, they might fail even sooner even under less stressful conditions? That worries me.

@RC I have to agree with you. In addition, why contribute to planned obsolescence? Isn't there enough junk in landfills? There ARE other brands that work better; I have one and it has been going strong for a good four years.

That model is discontinued, as was its upgrade; I also I have a newer one but it, too, has been upgraded. This is the most recent model: Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker and Soup Maker - Largest capacity, with All Stainless Steel Inside and I suspect you can find the older models on the Sanlinx Web site. The manufacturer is EXTREMELY responsive and monitors their Amazon product pages to offer assistance. You're very safe buying one of their machines.
