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.
I haven't used the cheese cloth, so I can't comment on that, but I have learned a few things in my trials that can help with better results:
-Use either a yogurt starter, a capsulated probiotic, or plain unsweetened yogurt as your starter. If you use flavored yogurt, either store bought or from a previous batch, it will not turn out well.
-Make sure you follow the directions and DO NOT mix in your starter before your milk cools to the right temperature. If its too hot, it will kill your starter, and you won't get yogurt.
-If you need to use a milk substitute like I do, I recommend canned coconut milk. Almond milk doesn't seem to thicken at all, so you end up with a very runny yogurt, and coconut milk that comes in a carton doesn't seem to thicken as well either. I use 6 cans of coconut milk, and since the milk separates in the can when it sits, I only shake 3 of them, and the 3 that I don't shake I only scoop out the cream that sits on the top. I know some people strain theirs in a cheese cloth to thicken it after they make it, but only using the cream from 3 of the cans removes the excess liquid from the beginning.
-Adding flavor such as pure vanilla or almond extract causes it to thin. I would recommend either flavoring right before consumption or using vanilla powder which you can buy online.
The only suggestion I can make to users is to NOT use the clear plastic dome top, if you do purchase this machine and only place a napkin or paper towel on the top of the machine when you use it. Otherwise you run a high chance of your machine also becoming damaged. Even at that point, you may not save the life of this defective machine. It was great when it worked, but for only four months use, I cannot justify the cost.
Bought this unit in March 2014 based on reviews here on Amazon and the fact I really liked the idea of making 2 quarts of yogurt at a time. Made my own yogurt 40 years ago in those little 5 or 6 oz cups. I ended up making 2 or 3 batches a week. That only lasted a couple years until I got tired of all the work. Been buying yogurt in the store since then. Since I eat about 300 grams or about 1/3 quart a day this 2 quart yogurt maker sounded fantastic.
Received the unit and started making yogurt. Based on some complaints here about the unit's temperature sometimes not being up to par, I measured the temperature of the mix coming out of the first few batches and it hovered right around 107 degrees. Not perfect but not bad. I found that cooking the mix about 8 1/2 to 9 hours at that temperature gave me the consistency I wanted. It was great to again make a yogurt with a flavor and texture that I really enjoyed. So kudos to this yogurt cooker and worthy of a 5-star rating. The 2-quarts gives me a full 7 servings/days so I only have to make one batch a week. I also bought an extra insert so I can rotate week to week.
Unfortunately as time went on I noticed that the mix was coming out "less cooked", or not as firm as it had originally. I measured the temperature again and it was down to 102 degrees. I increased the cooking time to regain the texture I like. More time went by and things kept getting progressively worse. By October 2014 my cooking time was up to 18 hours and the temperature of the mix coming out was 97.8 degrees. So boo to this yogurt maker for slowly failing and down to a 1-star rating.
I innocently sent an email to Euro Cuisine asking if there was any way I could adjust or otherwise fix the temperature problem. Their response was no, there is no way to adjust it. They asked when and where I purchased it. After answering them I received an email saying they would send me a new one. I didn't even ask for a replacement and had not at that point even considered trying to ask for one. It took a couple weeks, apparently due to a mistake at Euro Cuisine, but I received a new YM260 at no charge whatsoever. I made my first batch of yogurt last weekend and it came out at 108.7 degrees.
So kudos to Euro Cuisine for fantastic customer service and standing behind their product and again worthy of a 5-star rating. I rated it 4-stars overall just due to the inconvenience. Maybe that isn't fair, because the YM260 yogurt maker works great, when it's working correctly, and is extremely convenient. But I figure my inconvenience is worth one star. (said with a smile)
I fully recommend this yogurt maker.
(2) I made some yogurt anyway, takes about 30 hours, but making 2 liters at a time may not be ideal. Several small containers would keep better in the refrigerator by opening one at a time.
How I fixed it:
I took the screws out of the bottom, extracted the temperature sensor from underneath the heating foil (on the side of the unit) and taped it to the center of the bottom of the outer shell. The heating foil is only around the sides of the inner shell. The bottom of the outer shell is about 1/4 inch below the bottom of the inner shell. My temperature inside came up to 112 deg F.
