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 yogotherm

  1. Worked Wonderfully

    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.

    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.

    Due to the outside cold and cool inside temperatures, especially at night, the Yogotherm Yogurt Incubator is the perfect place for my milk kefir to complete its culturing overnight.
    During the purchasing process I was able to Live chat in order to ensure that the size of the container would hold my quart jars.

    It works well!! I live in a colder climate so I put it in the oven for approx. 12 hrs. with the light on which creates a little heat. If the consistency isn't firm enough I leave it for another 12 hrs. I have made several batches now. I love that it doesn't use electricity.

    Sooooo glad I bought this! At first I wondered about spending the money. Wasn't sure it would work, or that I'd stick with it. The Yogotherm not only works, it makes yogurt making so easy and foolproof, I wouldn't even consider buying manufactured yogurt again. Even better I'm able to take the excellent yogurt from this, strain it into Greek yogurt and use the resulting whey in our dogs food. A total win-win and a bargain for the price!

    I was skeptical because this is basically a bucket that nestles into a cooler, but it makes AMAZING yogurt with no oversight necessary.

    In my electric yogurt maker, I would have to time my yogurt exactly at about 4-5 hours because of the constant heat (or it would over ferment). With this, I put it in the bucket and check it 6-12 hours later. Then I take it out, let it cool to room temp, and refrigerate it.
    This yogurt is very thick and smooth, and it has less whey than when I use an electric maker.

    I love this and would buy it again and again. It is large though and makes a LOT of yogurt; I wish there were a smaller size that made maybe 2/3 as much because I only cook for myself and my kitchen is very small.

    I love having a device that requires no electricity or batteries to work. Heat up the milk, then cool it a little, mix in a little yogurt, and pour it all in the incubator. In two days it's done and it's delicious. It couldn't be easier. This is just what I was looking for.

  16. Best yogurt maker

    This yogurt incubator works very well and it's easy to use. I had electric yogurt maker before it was a headache. This incubator doesn't require any outside temperature control so you don't need to worry about it being over or under heated. Just pour the mixture of already boiled milk and culture inside. Set it aside for 10 hours and it comes out just right. The trick is try to use the heirloom lives culture instead of the direct yogurt starter. The yogurt starter makes the first batch of yogurt a little runny. Keep some culture as starter for the next few batches it gets thicker and more consistent. It tastes tangy and delicious. I use Bulgarian yogurt culture as starter. Every morning I make half liter of milk of yogurt. At evening when times is up I put the entire jar inside the fridgerator and continue to ferment in low temperature.

    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.

    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.

    I keep my home under 70 degrees in the winter. I was having difficulty with the efficiency of the Yogotherm. I then tried something that worked well. I boil water and pour it into 2 tall shot glasses that fit between my jars of warmed milk, close unit immediately. This maintains the temp for the culture to work and make my Kefir. I am now a happy camper.

    I think this product is a little overpriced for what it is, but it does incubate pretty well IF you fill it with boiling water for a while prior to pouring in the heated/cooled milk. If you don't heat it first, you will definitely lose some heat during the hours you let it sit. Otherwise, though, it is really great to keep yogurt warm without any electricity! My only other complaint is that the handle on the bucket is ALWAYS in the way when opening/closing the bucket, but that's not a very big deal either.

    I accidentally melted my Yogotherm in the oven when I forgot I was storing it in there and preheated the oven for muffins. Wahhh, missed it so much I had to order another one. You can make 2 quarts in this which holds me for about 2 weeks except in the summer when we are making yogurt popsicles and then we need lots of yogurt. My house is on the cool side but once I got the hang of using the Yogotherm, it is so easy. The first batch was a little thin, but by the second batch the starter seemed to mature and I left if overnight and I now always get relatively firm and tart yogurt. On really cold days, I wrap the Yogotherm with a down jacket and sometimes stick a jar of boiling water under the jacket every few hours. I now prefer to making it in the Yogotherm bucket and then dish out into pint jars. Easier to clean then all those little single serve jars from my other yogurt maker. Kinda expensive but without using electricity and the saved time of big batches and less jar cleaning, it is worth it (just don't store it in the oven!).

    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.

    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.

    The Yogotherm works fine. I make batches of yogurt weekly but I'll tell you that it is way over priced for a plastic bucket and styrofoam holder. It should be half the price at most. I also culture in quart jars putting them in a warm water bath in my small cooler and it works just as well.

  • From Ian at 11/17/2015 8:57 PM
    • The description for Yogotherm Incubator says that an heirloom culture can be used if it's been activated in another appliance. Does this mean that if I bought the Yogotherm and the Bulgarian Yogurt Starter for instance I would need to activate the starter in something else before using the Yogotherm? Any suggestions on how to do that? Thanks!
    • Activating the yogurt starter can take up to 12 hours, which is a little long for the Yogotherm to maintain the temperature, especially if the room temperature is a little cool. You can either activate the starter using a different method (see examples here: http://www.culturesforhealth.com/how-to-culture-yogurt-without-yogurt-maker ) or wrap your Yogotherm in a blanket to help maintain the warmth for the full activation period. You might test the yogurt maker using water that has been heated to 110°, let it sit in the Yogotherm for 12 hours and check the temperature, it must be between 110° and 112°.

    • Can the Yogotherm be used to make sour cream as well?
    • This would incubate at the temperature you put the food in at, of course losing a few degrees over time. You can throw a blanket or towel over the YogoTherm if it is on the chilly side of things at your house.

    • Will a 1 quart ball jar fit inside the yogotherm?
    • It depends on the height and type of the quart mason jar. Regular mouth quart jars will not fit. Wide mouth jars may or may not fit…Earlier versions may be too tall, while more current jars fit if you do not put on the inner lid. Compare to the inner dimensions:

      Height 6-3/8 inches
      Top diameter 6-1/2 inches
      Bottom diameter​ 5-3/8 inches

  • From LIzzie at 10/24/2013 10:52 AM
    • How can this be used for making soft cheese? Will it work for making raw goat milk feta?
    • Feta (as well as other soft cheese) is typically made at low temps (our recipe can be found here: http://www.culturesforhealth.com/how-to-make-feta-cheese/ ). The Yogotherm may be helpful in maintaining the temperature if your culturing area temp fluctuates.

  • From Karen at 10/20/2013 3:48 PM
    • I have the Pimma Starter Culture, can this be successfully used with that as well please?
    • The Yogotherm works equally well with mesophilic starters such as the Piima Starter. The Incubator will maintain the temperature of the mixture, so you may need to warm your milk slightly, up to culturing temperature, before adding it to the incubator.
