However, if you want a maker "off the shelf" this is excellent. It has the following pluses:
* It's instructions actually allow effective production of decent yogurt without further ado or special "mixes" or extras.
* It's got the "high top" lid which allows fairly easy 96oz (3qts, 3liters) of yogurt to be made at one time.. NOTE: For larger amounts you do need to supply your own containers.. not hard as tupperware bowls or mason jars, etc work fine.
* Although I would not rate it "superior" quality, it is decently made and has a 5yr warranty.. definitely above the norm.
* This makes inexpensive yogurt. (under $0.75 a quart for me) You can also use soy milk, goats' milk, etc to make your yogurts as well as add sweeteners and flavorings for variety. Check the internet for many variations. There are good sources.
* The small jars it comes with are handy if you're making a small amount or if you are doing it for children who all want different flavors.
* It's easy to clean (the small jars are glass.. the hardest items to clean). Rarely do you need to do much cleaning to the unit itself.
It only comes with the small cups and the normal and high-top lids.. you have to supply your own "big" containers.. mason jars work or whatever you have. I especially enjoy the high capacity. I live alone and easily eat one to two quarts of yogurt a week.. it cut me out of my "ice cream addiction* haha It satisfies my "cream crave".Read more ›
First, the machine heats the activated milk to a maximum of 105 degrees -- which is on the low side for good yogurt-making.
Unfortunately, that maximum temperature is reached only very close to the bottom of the machine. The only way you can possibly make 80 ounces of yogurt is by using very tall jars -- and the liquid in the upper halves of the jars simply doesn't get hot enough to firm up.
So I switched to making one-quart batches using lower containers -- and that worked fine as long as 1) I heated the milk to 110 degrees before putting it in the machine, 2) covered the Yolife with a heavy towel, and 3) the room was warm. I have to say it made terrific yogurt in those conditions.
Now, though, it's fall and the temperature in my kitchen is lower. Today, I put a quart of 110 degree activated milk into the machine. Eight hours later it was still completely liquid -- and 20 degrees cooler than when I put it in. Sigh. After another three hours I had to toss the entire batch.
In short, this machine works fine with the little jars and the low cover. But unless the one you get has substantially more heating capacity than mine, the only way to succeed at making bigger batches is to provide either extra heat or heavy-duty extra insulation from the outside (which could be dangerous).
Having to add those extras seems to defeat the purpose of having a yogurt maker at all.
With my first batch of yogurt, I tasted it before refrigerating it, and I noticed a slight plastic flavor. This disappeared after refrigeration. There has been a slight plastic odor as the unit heats up, but it has dissipated with each use. I suspect that this will disappear completely with time.
A yogurt maker really just has to create an environment in which the bacterial cultures will thrive, holding the temperature around 110° F. This machine does this perfectly. I appreciate that the instructions state that yogurt may be made from cold milk and yogurt. It takes longer in the machine and the yogurt isn't quite as firm as with heated milk, but it's so easy to dump cold milk and yogurt into a jar, plug the machine in, and twelve hours later, you have yogurt.
Overall, this yogurt maker is perfect for me. It allows the flexibility of using large glass jars and makes great yogurt.
Isn't that what we all want when we purchase something?
I'd been making yogurt at home, using a combination of a warm oven and in winter, even wrapping the bowl with a small fleece blanket in an attempt to keep the temperature constantly warm enough to let the yogurt set. This method didn't always work and when I think of the sour milk I got half of the time, it makes me cringe.
But The Yolife Yogurt maker takes away all the paraphernalia and planning. Just plug in and the yogurt is ready to consume in 6-8 hours, depending on how "done" or tart one wants their yogurt.
I used a small 6-oz carton plain lowfat yogurt as my first starter. Make sure to look for "contains live and active cultures" and not "made with live cultures".
Also, I have found that 2% milk makes the most smooth, delicious yogurt, as it has just enough fat to make the yogurt creamy and delicious.
Whole milk has too much fat, and nonfat milk has too little and I find the resulting yogurt a little grainy.
I HIGHLY recommend this yogurt maker. I usually use the large lid so I can make large quantities of plain yogurt.

Works great! It does a great job and I love that I can use quart size mason jars in this (3 will fit). I do wish it had a timer, though - it just stays on until you unplug it.Published 3 months ago by Bluebird
As with a number of other reviewers here, the product becomes way too hot. I've been using this to ferment natto, so the 140 F that it reaches is much too high. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Michael
