I was a little apprehensive about purchasing the Euro Cuisine GY50 Greek Yogurt Maker because of the comments about the fragility of the mesh. Then I read some reviews that recommended inverting the yogurt strainer onto the lid to release the yogurt when the straining process is complete. Please try this method! It works beautifully. When the yogurt has drained sufficiently, lift the strainer section while holding the lid in place. Turn it upside down and let it drop a couple of inches onto your counter top. The yogurt releases completely. Scoop it from the lid into a bowl with a spatula. The faucet sprayer does a great job of rinsing any remaining yogurt residue from the strainer then swish the strainer in a sink of soapy water and rinse well. Love it!
We looked at many heating yogurt machines but due to volume we make on a weekly basis decided to keep our method going, which is basically to do a gallon batch each time. We use a pressure cooker to heat/cool down milk, We then put culture in and put in quart mason jars, we are moving to two quart jars purchased from Amazon.Com because they fit inside the Pressure Cooker when we are fermenting. Please note the cooker is not on heat. We just add warm water and and close the lid... and then ferment over night in the pressure cooker, then pour into Euro Cuisine CY50 Greek Yogurt Maker....this item is actually NOT a yogurt maker from the perspective that it does not ferment the yogurt, it is a full size (2) quart strainer. It is sort of like a giant coffee strainer. It holds the large size of "Nancy's Honey Cultured Yogurt" perfectly. You get several cups of whey out of it. We turn our whey into lemonade and other drinks for people to consume for the culture and health benefits which include ulcers and gasteric problems. We ferment our own yogurt as well as use Nancy's as a backup because we eat so much weekly. It is really a shame so many Americans suffer from stomach and gut problems including surgeries when they can eat their medicine and enjoy it! We tried other methods to strain yogurt but decided on this product because of the cost and the fact we do not like to strain products into paper towels or coffee filters. It is easy to clean to but we keep adding yogurt to it and putting it back in the fridge! Some of the reviews say this product is fragile. I have not experienced this. It might be because we use plastic utensils and avoid metal because with Kefir fermentation metal can change the flavor. When you first put in the yogurt it can be runny. We spoon it in and then just pour on top when we get to the bottom of our quart and two quart jars. It sets up in a few hours but if you like it extra firm let it set up overnight. Using cream or 1/2 and 1/2 during fermentation is absolutely divine. The Euro Cuisine GY50 Maker Works great either straining yogurt you just made or prepared yogurt into creamy Greek Style yogurt. We are making yogurt cheese as we speak. You just let it drain a litte bit longer. We would definitely purchase this item again. We plan on having fermenting parties to teach others how to do this. Amazon is a great place to get supplies and the prices seem to be the best. We know down the road we will want another one. Even the die hard, "I don't eat yogurt" change their minds after eating homemade Greek Yogurt. We are not kidding...it is really amazing stuff. We are plugging Nancy's Cultured products as a prepared yogurt to use because of the volume but there are many others that simply cost more. Either way it is much cheaper to make Greek Yogurt from scratch or straining your own. We paid for this Amazon purchase in in 4 cultured batches.
I had been using butter muslin to strain yogurt before I got this. If I left the yogurt in the muslin more than a few hours, it became yogurt cheese. The yogurt cheese was delicious but it wasn't Greek yogurt. This strainer solves that problem completely.
I do not use any utensil in the basket at all. The instructions included are very clear how to get your yogurt out. Even after straining for four or five days, simply loosen the lid and grip the basket with your fingertips and pinch the two together as you lift both out of the reservoir bucket. Next, invert as a unit. Then I set the whole assembly down on the counter with a bit of force. The yogurt then releases from the strainer basket and you can then lift it (strainer basket) right off and you have a ring of yogurt sitting in the lid.
At this point you can go to town with your utensil of choice to transfer your yogurt. I choose a silicone spatula so that I don't scratch up the lid and scoop some into my container as starter for the next batch and the rest into my usual container. I simply fill the reservoir basket with hot soapy water, then insert the strainer basket and agitate and it's usually soaking while I'm transferring the yogurt. Then I rinse with hot water, sometimes I do use my sink sprayer if there is some stubborn residue. I always let it air dry.
I admit I have not had this strainer long, I bought the first one the beginning of September, but it has seen almost daily use since purchase and it has exceeded expectations. I'm sorry this review is so long and hope this helps some people in making their decision regarding purchase. If I find that this strainer fails, I will update.
