It is a bit pricy but that likely has to do with import costs. The wood and straining materials are strong and well crafted. Overall I am pleased with this item however the instructions given are not so good first they go only by grams which takes a little trouble/research to convert 500g of Soybeans = roughly 3 Cups. I also advise to halve the recipe they provide and divide that when pureeing the soy beans. Overall just buy a tofu cook book and use the recipe and suggestions from the book which are more substantial and can help you troubleshoot if you have problems. I have and recommend "The Book of Tofu and Miso" which also provides recipes for the byproducts of making the tofu too. (Posted on 1/10/2012)
The packaging is great. The product is well made. The instructions are a problem. Of the four times I tried to make tofu only one turned out. That was after a call to your customer service. She suggested that I double up on the coagulator. That worked only once. Better instructions and a video would nice.
Note from CFH: Please contact customer support for troubleshooting advice before discarding product. Many starters can be saved with minor adjustments. (Posted on 5/5/2014)
