TIME CONSUMING if you boil milk:
#1. Boil 5 cups of milk on stove.
#2. Cool milk (place pot in a sink full of ice water).
#3. Pour into cups & sit in machine for 8-9hrs.
A LOT OF CLEANING: 8 cups, the yogurt maker, the pot you boiled the milk in, utensils & Thermometer. Avoid extra cleaning by leaving space at the top of each cup as I found yogurt at the bottom of each section of this machine, which was a pain to clean. Also be careful to not burn the milk or you'll be scrapping your pot to get it clean.
STARTERS: You don't need to buy special "starter" you can use any probiotic with "live cultures" as it is the bacteria that eats the lactose in the milk and grows and makes it thick (I use about 1 tsp for each 5oz cup, more the older your starter is as the bacteria starts dying off on the shelf). If it doesn't thicken then they were not LIVE (I would return them, especially if they were expensive). Look for probiotics that say "Good Through expiration date" on the label. You can also use yogurt or kefir as a starter (make sure the label says it contains "probiotics" or "Live Cultures". I tried Stoney creek organic yogurt and Nancy's kefir in separate cups. Nancy's kefir created a thicker yogurt due to a higher content of probiotics.
MILK: I used Organic skim milk which I boiled & it made for bitter tasting yogurt I had to add Stevia to. Then tried organic 2% and didn't boil it and the yogurt tasted fine.
SMALL CUPS: 5oz cups which you cannot fill to the top, so less than 5oz each. Replacement cups are $12 at aroma-housewares website.
The interface couldn't be easier. Power it up, the digital display comes on. Add hours and minutes desired, and press the Start button. The countdown begins, the unit keeping it at the right temperature, then shuts itself off when it's done. (This last is what is lacking in many other units under $50.) Next time, I'll set it for 10 hours instead of 9:15, to firm it up a bit more, and probably add vanilla extract to some of the cups.
That there are 8 cups is a pleasure. The tops screw on quite readily. I will probably want to get another set of cups so I can make a new batch before the old one is gone, but that's the case with any yogurt maker.
It's been a couple of months that I've been looking at the various models, wanting automatic shut-off and preferring some sort of active interface over the standard "oh, just push the power button and then come back to it when the time is out." This model has given me everything I wanted, and at $30 including shipping, I couldn't be more pleased. What's more, I'll now be enjoying natural, healthy yogurt, instead of the gelatin and extra "stuff" in commercial yogurt. The first batch was quite creamy and tasty. Seems pretty certain it'll just get better as I get better at it. Thanks, Amazon and Aroma!
1) Cook for LESS time, not more, to set the yogurt up and have a smooth, less tart taste. So, using EuroCuisine's extra firm starter (and bringing the milk up to 180 this time, why not follow the directions) I got very thick, creamy yogurt in just 7 hours.
2) I phoned Aroma, got a woman who told me that the extra set of cups is backordered, and will be available in a month. That's just about now. They are $10 a set, from Aroma's office in the States.
3) The Full line can be exceeded successfully. Otherwise, use half a cup less milk so as not to waste it.
Still luvin' it!
EDIT: Aroma did eventually contact me and I ordered two extra sets of cups. (One would have been enough, but with consolidated shipping, I didn't mind.) The cups are BAPA-free, which makes me happy, and I woudn't want to risk not being able to get them again. It still works great, gives me thick, creamy yogurt with nothing in there that I didn't add myself. I've enjoyed experimenting, adding a bit of vanilla or coconut or almond extract as the last thing, after all else is done, before ladling it into the cups. I see the price has gone up a bit, but it's still worth every penny! 3-28-2011
When I received the unit, I was quite impressed with the design, the ease of the controls, and it's small footprint, even though it makes 8 servings at one time.
I immediately made my first batch of yogurt and I am hooked on this yogurt maker! Easy to read and follow instructions, easy to use and has an auto-shutoff, which was my main concern as I tend to forget pots on the stove! My very first batch came out perfectly and I am VERY pleased with this unit. Even though it is at the low end for the price, it has all the features I wanted to ensure an easy way to make homemade yogurt. I don't see how anyone could go wrong!
I highly recommend this unit to anyone wanting to save money and make homemade yogurt.
