1) It performs its primary function well.
2) Large capacity.
3) Incubation vessel functions well as storage.
4) Included extras (thermometer and cheesecloth bag) provide pretty much everything you need to make great yogurt just the way you like it
1) Cheap plastic incubator/storage. Would have preferred glass, even if it added $10 to the price.
2) "Timer" isn't a timer, it's just a reminder: If you point it to 8, that means you're supposed to unplug the machine at 8 O'Clock, not that the incubation stops after 8 hours. Only marginally useful, and was added to make it seem like there was another feature without having to pay to produce it.
3) Cheesecloth bag is difficult to work with. Would have preferred regular cheesecloth that would open flat to facilitate removing the strained yogurt.
All in all, there's probably ten bucks in materials, labor and design in this thing, if that. That said, all of the value in this thing is tied up in two features: its reliability and it's capacity. I hadn't found a reliable way to incubate prior to this and I'd probably have spent half this price on milk trying to find something that would work without fuss year round. It's nice to know that I'm using something specifically designed to maintain yogurt incubating temps. The thermometer is better suited to this use than the cheap candy thermometer I was using as well.Read more ›
Size- I can make enough yogurt for the week in this, and since my son is 7 and in school, making it in small glass containers that the other style of yogurt makers have would create more work for me, as I would have to transfer it to a plastic container anyways.
Thermometer- As I stated above, it has lines marked to the highest temperature you need to heat your milk to, and the temperature you need to let it cool to before you place it in the yogurt maker.
Bowl included- I was excited that there was a bowl included thinking I could use it to separate the 2 cups of milk and add probiotics/yogurt starter after it was heated and cooled, but its too small to fit the amount needed and mix. I'm sure it would make a nice bowl for eating the yogurt, though.
"Timer" listed in description- Its really the numbers 1 through 12 on the base with an arrow on the lid so you can turn it to point to the number of the hour when your yogurt will be done. While it serves its purpose and I have no problem with it, it wasn't what I expected when I read the word "timer" in the description.Read more ›
Thinking it was me (after all, it did work at one time), I tried different yogurt starters. I went from Fage to Dannon to Stoneyfield. I tried the cheesecloth bag that came with the unit. Then I ordered the EuroCuisine dry culture. I bought Donvier strainers...and as they're small, TWO of them at that. All no go. I then went to "Cultures for Life" and bought a starter specifically for making Greek yogurt. The instructions stressed that temperature was critical. Well, we all know about temperatures being important, but TODAY, after 5 hours and still no thickening at all, I decided to use my handy-dandy thermometer...you know...the one that came with the unit??? Come to find out, 5 hours in, and my yogurt is incubating at 91 degrees! Yes, I said NINETY ONE DEGREES, folks.
This unit was purchased on October 10, 2011. Today is December 4, 2011. I tried to do a return thru amazon.com only to find out that my return window expired on November 21st! I listened to the OTHER reviews indicating they were told the static was 'normal', thus thinking it was "me" when it was in fact a faulty product! NINETY ONE DEGREES DOES NOT MAKE YOGURT.
So. Buzzing noise??? Yogurt doesn't thicken??? Not good. Send it back. Don't wait only to lose your money. Oh, and when I wiped down the outside of the unit with mild dish detergent as some milk had dripped on the outside of the unit, my numbers started smearing and rubbed off. I truly paid OVER $50 for ONE BATCH OF YOGURT.
