Love my yogurt maker
Tom Michels from New Richmond, WI– Verified Buyer
Have been using my yogurt maker now for six to eight months. Loving it! I bought the large jar but have found that I don't use the it or the small jars that came with it. I have found that I can fit three one quart mason jars under the dome. I make a large batch, then let it drain for at least 8 and sometimes up to 24 hours then use a hand held mixer to make fabulous greek yogurt. I would, and have, recommend this yogurt maker to anyone!
Very Happy With The Yolife!
Hannah from TN– Verified Buyer
I was very excited to get my Yolife! To be honest I did not know anything about making yogurt! So I can say that this maker works great for newbies!
I am loving the YoLife yogurt maker
Canuck from Canada– Verified Buyer
I have been using the YoLife Yogurt maker for about a month and I am thoroughly enjoying my homemade yogurt. My family was skeptical about how homemade yogurt would taste and they are all eating it (with a little sugar or maple syrup mixed in). I have also been using the plain yogurt in place of sour cream and mayo in dips. I really enjoy that the YoLife comes with glass jars for making small batches, and the larger lid for making large batches in your own Mason jars. Somewhere, somebody online posted about the Yolife 210 coming with a European plug - mine certainly came with the correct plug for North American outlets. My only critique is that the small jars are a little hard to clean because of the beveled design, but I just leave mine to soak so yogurt doesn't dry on the inside. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase.
Versatile and simple.
BKHunter from Bangor, ME
We use the YoLife at least once a week to make plain yogurt. It works far better than our previous yogurt maker and is more versatile. With the open warming bed we can use any size jar or bowl. It is easy to keep clean with the sealed base, the jars and covers pop right into the dishwasher. The only shortcoming, the tall lid is a little too tall for half-pint mason jars--more heat is lost than saved and it takes longer to "cook" or a small towel is needed over the top, while the short lid doesn't fit over them at all. Otherwise, a wonderful product at a great price.
Renaenae from Ames, IA
I've used this yogurt maker about 4 times and have had excellent results. I had to troubleshoot my yogurt recipe to get a nice consistancy, but once I figured it out, it is great. The yogurt does taste like plain you buy in the store, but if you add fresh fruit to it, you don't notice the sourness. I heat the milk (I've tried 1% and whole milk with 1/4 cup of powdered milk per cup of liquid milk to make it creamier) to 185 F, let it cool to 105 F then whisk in about a tablespoon of starter per jar of yogurt I want to make. Pour into the jars and let it incubate overnight. It is best if you refridgerate it before eating.
Jo-gurt from Jamestown, Ca
I have been using this yogurt maker for more than a 2 years now and never had a batch fail. I make Greek yogurt in Quart Jars and the high dome lid. So very worth the few hours wait and I know what is in my yogurt. Plain,favored or used for cooking it is a of great benefit to ones heath.
very good product.
Marcelle from Florida
The best things about this product is that you can use any jar beside the jars that come with the machine; and to have the yogurt not sour I use the machine for 5 hrs intead of 6 or 8 hours, I will reccomend this product to all that love yogurt.
Most versatile yogurt maker ever!
Shari from Atlanta, GA– Verified Buyer
I researched a multitude of yogurt makers and this one stood out because it comes with two different size covers. I started out making yogurt in small jars using the small cover. My family can't get enough! I am now making yogurt in quart jars using the large cover. I have made half and half yogurt, goat yogurt, soy yogurt, organic yogurt, 2% yogurt, whole milk yogurt. If you follow the directions correctly you will have perfect yogurt every time. This yogurt maker has paid for itself many times over. I'll never go back to store bought yogurt again.
Handy little machine
Shar from Ontario, CAN– Verified Buyer
I used to use my oven with the light on to set my yogurt, but that meant my oven was out of commission for 12 - 15 hours and the results were not consistent.
Good for 3 quarts of yogurt
PJ from Kula, Maui– Verified Buyer
I usually add 1 TB of my previous batch of yogurt per quart of milk for "lebensraum" room to grow. Heat the milk first to 110 degrees, then add the TB diluted with the warmed milk and mix well.I like to use wide mouth Mason jars with the white plastic top. I let the yogurt culture for about 24 hours--you can experiment with the timing. We are not picky about consistency and it's almost drinkable (this is goat milk).
