  • From Kat at 1/15/13 7:46 AM
    • Would this work with non dairy yogurts? They are so much thinner than regular yogurt almost like Kefir consistency. I am allergic to the commonly used thickeners so can't use those to thicken it.
    • The strainer works beautifully with kefir, it should work just as well with a thin yogurt.

    • i make homemade yogurt. Would the yogurt go into the greek maker after the incubation or after i refrigerate my yogurt? The part you eat is the part that has been strained??? is there anything to do with the other part?
    • Typically you would refrigerate your yogurt, remove a portion to start the next batch if it's a reculturable yogurt, and then strain it. Yes, you eat the thickened portion. The liquid whey that's strained off can be used for many purposes. Please see the following article:

    • I plan on using the device to make kefir, but I am concerned about the material used for the screen.

      Is it metal?

      If it is plastic, how well does it stand up to cleaning?

      Thank you,

      Raybert.

  • From lindap at 2/25/13 10:00 AM
    • What is the yield of 2 qts. of Greek yogurt after it has been strained?
    • The yield depends on the length of time you strain the yogurt. The manufacturer recommends from 3-18 hours of straining. Longer straining times will remove more whey and yield less finished yogurt.

    • This can be used to drain whey from any type of yogurt.

  • From Lisa at 2/9/14 9:52 PM
    • Just to confirm the above question. Can I use this to make cheese with one of your cheese culture kits?
    • The Greek Yogurt Maker alone cannot be used for making cheese. It may be handy for straining the cheese curds from the whey, but that is only one step in the cheese-making process.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From UC at 4/9/14 6:03 PM
    • Would this work for non-dairy, homemade yogurt that is thickened with pectin?
    • The Greek Yogurt Maker is basically a large strainer and container system that strains the whey out of the yogurt to give it a much more creamy, rich texture. It works well for dairy and non-dairy yogurt.

I was using cheesecloth to strain my homemade yogurt. Now I don't have to buy more cheesecloth for this. This justifies the cost of the strainer. Very tasty greek yogurt. Thanks for a great, informative website. (Posted on July 26, 2014)

The strainer is so easy to use and to clean. It has saved me so much trouble! And it produce quality Greek yogurt. It is worth twice what I paid for it; I just could't buy it if it cost double. Excellent, useful investment! And it takes a half gallon at the time. (Posted on June 25, 2014)

I really didn't want to spend $25 on a strainer, but I didn't have anything at home that would hold that much yogurt. It's really nice, and now I am glad I have it. (Posted on May 14, 2014)
Better than I anticipated Review by Suca

I was hesitant about buying something I would only use for one thing. We live in a small house with a small kitchen. I used to tough it out with coffee filters and filter holders. I have no regrets buying this! It works great and makes good Greek yogurt. On top of that it was 35% less than buying it locally, even with the postage. I like to support local business, but it didn't make sense in this case. (Posted on April 26, 2014)

Used this the same day I received it in the mail and it is perfect, efficient, keeps bugs out! One comment, will get more whey from the yogurt if left at room temperature. This is 100 percent more efficient than using the odd containers and metal strainer that I was using before. Great invention on someone's part! Question, (this hasn't happened actually) what if the nylon straining material rips! Buy a replacement filter, etc?

Response from CFH: EuroCuisine does make a mesh replacement for the Greek Yogurt Maker. It is available through EuroCuisine directly. The mesh is durable and if cared for properly, should last quite some time. (Posted on March 4, 2014)
does what it's supposed to Review by mlw

My experience with this is similar to the other users. It works very nicely to strain the whey from yogurt, and is much easier and much less messy than cheesecloth or a cloth sac. It cleans easily and quickly under lightly flowing warm water. I think it's perhaps a few dollars more than such a simple device should cost, but I have no regrets purchasing it for the price I did.

Another perfect product Review by AWalters

This is a large container. It will hold around 4 cups of yogurt easily. It is well made and easy to clean; the lid is easy to remove to check on the yogurt quickly. It makes the separation of the whey from the yogurt so much easier than fooling around with cheese cloth and hanging a big ball of yogurt to drain into a bowl. You can refrigerate the whole thing or, I leave mine on the counter. The longer I leave it, the drier the yogurt cheese I have. And when it is done, it's easy to pour the whey into a jar for later use in soaking grains or starting other fermentation recipes. Makes a great gift too! (Posted on January 13, 2014)

Foolproof thick yogurt Review by Susu
Value
Quality
Price
This gadget really works. Before, my yogurt always came out too runny. The only problem I have is once all the whey is drained out, there isn't much yogurt left. I started adding pectin and dry milk while heating it so the yogurt is thicker to begin with and less will drain out. After it's done draining, I put it in a blender with sweetener and fruit. Then I freeze it in little cups. It comes out really creamy and delicious. I don't think it saves me any money since milk is so expensive but it is tastier than store bought yogurt.

I've made goat yogurt for many years. It was always great but had the tendency to be more liquid than I liked. I've had this yogurt maker for almost 2 weeks. I can't begin to tell you the great, smooth, silky, & thick the consistency is now. It is so rich that we are eating it quicker than I can replenish the container. I use my Yogourmet to process the milk with the culture. I then refrigerate for 24 hrs. I pour the cold yogurt into the Greek Yogurt Maker & the next day have the best yogurt I have ever eaten. Thanks so much for this awesome product. (Posted on July 17, 2013)
