Awareness of the side effects of modern living finally came to mind. There is some sort of “back to nature” on the scene, and everybody is trying to live as healthy as possible.
And regular exercise won’t make it all. There’s something in the food you eat, too. And when it comes to the food…
Well, you’ll find a bunch of recommended healthy foodstuffs, but you’ll hardly avoid the yogurt. Yogurt contains a lot of proteins, probiotics, calcium, vitamins like B5, B12, and vitamin D, which all make it recommended food in preventing obesity and losing weight.
That makes yogurt so special.
We are sure you already know you don’t need to walk around the shopping malls and check the product declarations. You can make yogurt on your own. It’s much more affordable, and you can avoid sugar and preservatives.
I’ve always more liked cakes and desserts my mum was making than the store-bought ones. I guess there is some magic in these homemade foods.
So in this article, we will go through the list of some of the most popular yogurt-making machines, and, hopefully, help you to decide which one suits your needs best. In short, we’ll try to find which one of these machines is really the best yogurt maker.
1. Dash Yogurt Maker Machine
If you’re craving a tasty, fresh, smooth, and delicious yogurt then this machine might be the right pick for you.
It comes with seven little 8 oz glass jars with screw-on lids, which allow you to make seven different flavored yogurts at once. But if you want to make a large batch of yogurt, you don’t need to use them. You can just use the glass bowl, instead.
The timer is very useful, although the numbers could be larger. It automatically shuts itself off, so you can, for example, go to sleep and leave it cooking ( 8, 10, or 12 hours ) without keeping an eye on it. In the morning you’re going to be surprised by amazingly delicious yogurt with the perfect texture.
It works great even with the non-dairy yogurt.
It’s easy to use, and, more importantly, easy to clean. The only real cleaning involves the jars.
It comes with a recipe book and database access to thousands of recipes.
Make sure to follow the instructions and you’re good to go. Honestly, if you ask me, this would be my best yogurt maker!
2. Euro Cuisine Yogurt Maker
Just like the previous one, this yogurt maker also comes with seven glass jars. They are just a bit smaller – 6 ounces. So, you’re able to make 42 ounces of yogurt at one batch.
Or, if you rather prefer one large bowl of yogurt, Pyrex Storage 7-Cup Round Dish with Dark Blue Plastic Cover, Clear perfectly fits into this yogurt maker.
The jars are dishwasher safe, so the cleaning is no big deal.
The timer has an hour reminder but it doesn’t automatically shut down itself.
The recipes which come with the machine are a great starting point but you’ll soon start experimenting with your recipes, changing the basic yogurt one. It works great whether you want a Greek-style, Vegan, or any other kind of yogurt. Your imagination is the limit.
The instructions are clear and concise, so make sure you read them before the use.
To cut long story short – this is a great product!
3. Suteck Power Yogurt Maker Machine
This is a beautifully designed, lightweight, and easy to use a yogurt maker. It comes with eight 8oz glass jars with plastic lids, all made of BPA-free materials.
Once you get used to it you’ll realize how really powerful this machine is.
It has adjustable temperature control which makes it able to maintain temperature evenly over long periods and an adjustable timer that goes up to 40 hours.
The automatic shutdown feature makes this yogurt maker one of those “set it and forget it” devices.
It’s very easy to clean and comes with clear instructions and a nice beginner recipe booklet.
We highly recommend it.
4. Proctor Silex Yogurt Maker Machine
This yogurt maker is a bit smaller compared to its competitors, and it comes with only one, but a sturdy container, which is used for both – making and storing the yogurt. So there are no jars, but, the cleaning is easier, too.
The inner container is made of BPA-free materials and stores in the refrigerator nicely.
It comes with a nice digital counter with the alarm which beeps when the yogurt is ready. The temperature is automatically set to 110 degrees.
All in all, it’s a compact and well-designed yogurt maker which looks and works as advertised.
The only consideration would be the size – this yogurt maker makes 32 ounces or 4 cups of yogurt in one batch.
5. Country Trading Co. Stainless Steel Yogurt Maker
If you prefer a more traditional way of making yogurt then this might be the right appliance for you.
This is a non-electric, plastic-free, stainless steel yogurt maker. It is small, well designed, compact, and really easy to use the appliance.
Quantity wise you can expect 1 quart or 32 ounces from one batch of yogurt. Yeah, you’ll get less, but not far less compared to other yogurt makers in the article. But, the process is simpler.
If you ask how… Well, this is a stainless double-walled flask that holds the temperature. So there is no need for electricity. Just stainless steel and the glass jar. Simply put the thermal container with a screw top.
It comes with a booklet containing instructions and recipes. The instructions are clear and everything works as described and advertised. The booklet contains 42 recipes but you can use any other recipes you can found, including the ones intended for making yogurt with electric yogurt makers.
Simply, it works well and does the job.
