Why I Love This Product

I use my yogortherm at least once every week to culture yogurt! I love it because it is so simple to use. There are no electric outlets needed, no batteries, nothing. Just pour in at least 1 quart (2 is better) of warm milk and cultures and throw the lid on and you are making yogurt! I have done 24 hour batches in this and it has worked wonders. This is the perfect product for someone making large batches of yogurt who does not want to have to worry about it changing temperatures. Check out my blog post on using the yogothermErin, Customer Support Representative

    • Yogotherm Yogurt Incubator, is this only for dairy based yogurt as a non-dairy starter is not listed. I would like to make coconut milk yogurt. Thanks!
    • Thanks for catching our omission. The Yogotherm can be used with the non-dairy starter or any yogurt starter that cultures at 110ºF.

    • With this incubator, do you need to leave the yogurt for 6 hrs, or you need to follow the directions on the starter you buy?
    • For best results, follow the instructions that come with your starter.

  • From Mariah Lutich at 4/2/12 8:27 PM
    • What is the batch container made of, please?
    • The inner container is made of food grade plastic that is BPA free. A glass container will work if you are able to find one that fits well.

  • From Sally visher at 4/25/12 9:11 AM
    • I tried to make Greek yogurt and put the active culture with the milk at 110 degrees in a mason jar in the container and closed the lid. When I checked 5 hours later it was at 65 degrees. how can I keep it warmer? I thought the yogotherm was supposed to keep it at a constant temperature. Thanks for you're insight.
    • It sounds like you are not using the container that came with the Yogurt Incubator. It could be that there is too much space between the jar and the incubator. You might be able to wrap a towel around the jar to get a tighter fit. It also sounds like your ambient temperature might be a little low. The incubator works great at normal room temps but might struggle a bit if you're using it in Arctic conditions :) Try the towel and let us know how it works.

  • From Chris at 5/9/12 3:15 PM
    • Is there a warranty with this product?
    • There is no specific warranty for this product, as it has no moving or electronic parts.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Ann at 7/24/12 2:22 PM
    • Do you store the yogurt in the liner or do you then scoop it out into another container?
    • You could do either. If you want to make another batch of yogurt though, I would scoop it out into another container so you have the liner free!
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Noel at 8/31/12 4:30 PM
    • I noticed that some people also make soft cheese with their yogurt makers.

      Can cheese be made in this model?
    • The Yogotherm works great for soft cheeses but would not be suitable for a hard cheese.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Sandra at 1/22/13 10:09 PM
    • Can I fill the container only half if I don't want to make that much yogurt at a time? Or will it affect the temperature ?
    • It will cool more quickly. For smaller batches, it's better to put the yogurt in a smaller jar, then pack it into the yogotherm with a towel around it for extra insulation.​
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No

Doesn't work for me Review by Dali
Price
Value
Quality
I tried using this incubator for several weeks given all the great reviews here. However, I find that this doesn't incubate the yogurt well at all. I tried warming the plastic basket and styrofoam with hot water, then dumping the hot water out and then placing my yogurt in to incubate. But even still, the temperature did not remain consistent (at least within a 10 degree range) throughout a 5-7 hour period. I do not recommend this product to anyone. Now I'm all the prowl for a another yogurt maker.

Note from CFH: Ambient temperature can have an effect on the culturing process. In cold weather, wrap with a warmed towel for added insulation. (Posted on April 4, 2014)
Yogurt making made easy Review by Tracy

I was skeptical, mostly of my own abilities, but this incubator made it easy. To be honest, I was a little bummed that it's just Styrofoam on the inside. I though I was doing better for the Earth by choosing a non-electric option. I do like that the plastic used is made in Canada, and also BPA free or else this would have been returned. It works great, easy, no fuss. (Posted on April 3, 2014)

easy and economical Review by gwinnyb

this is a good way to make the quantities of yogurt that we use in our home with minimal fuss and expense. I have used 2 quarts each time I make yogurt and find that it produces a thick creamy product. The hardest part is heating the milk without scorching. I have a thermometer that I use, heating on low I set the kitchen time for 10 minute intervals to stir and check the temp. No worries after poured into the incubator and closed up.

Good, easy way to culture yogurt Review by Brooke
Quality
Price
Value
This incubator has worked fairly well for me. I just wish I had realized at first that when the container is not full, the culture won't necessary be kept at the appropriate temperature for long enough. I had to take the plastic insert out of the styrofoam and wrap a heating pad around it to keep it going. I plan on making full 2-quart batches in the future to avoid this problem.
I do feel that $40 is a bit steep for a plastic bucket and styrofoam sleeve. It's very well made and sturdy, so I know it will last me a long time. $40 just seems like a stretch for me. (Posted on March 7, 2014)

The Yogurt incubator is a wonderful product that keeps the temp steady as needed. The yogurt and kefir comes out perfect with this product. The finished product is so smooth with a delicious taste. No need to add any sugar or sweetener.

Making fantastic yogurt for 15 years Review by Chauq

Purchased my yogotherm in 1998. This is the easiest way to make quality yoghurt that we have tried. Have had electronic - yield too small and too much to clean. This unit is durable, easy to use and clean. There are no parts to damage nor to wear out. It is an excellent investment. Have made 1000' s of quarts. We are completely satisfied and are ready to replace the styrofoam insert due to minor discoloration. Unbelievable value and performance. (Posted on April 19, 2013)
Worked Wonderfully Review by Zen Momma

I used my Yogotherm Yogurt Incubator to make 2 quarts of yogurt from raw goats milk. It worked beautifully! I did heat a quart of water to boiling, put that into a covered mason jar and set mason jar inside of the Yogotherm to help bring the insulation temperature up while I heated my milk to 110 degrees. I did this because it's still winter and we keep our house relatively cool (about 65 degrees). I put the 2 quarts of heated milk into the pail, whisked in my starter, covered it and left it to culture for 8 hours on my kitchen counter. The yogurt is set and seems to be nice and thick for a raw milk yogurt. I'm very pleased with my purchase. I will admit that I was skeptical at first, but now that I've used it, I feel it is a good value with reliable results that I would happily recommend to anyone. (Posted on March 21, 2013)
