"For the very best thick Greek yogurt!"

I love this strainer. It holds up to half a gallon of yogurt at a time, comes with its own lid. We make yogurt weekly using fresh milk from our cow share program. We follow the basic recipe, including heating the milk up to 182 degrees, then letting the temp fall to about 110 degrees before adding...

    All I can say is, "Why did I wait so long to buy this yogurt strainer!?" I finally decided to buy it when CFH had a nice discount on it. This is an excellent product and my family loves the thicker yogurt! This is also an excellent way to separate out the whey to be used when culturing vegetables! Don't delay - it's worth it!!

  3. Works well holds up fair

    Worked perfectly for straining yogurt and is very convenient. Although second or third time I washed it the lid became distorted from the hot water and no longer fits. I didn't wash it in a dishwasher as some people are probably suspecting, I washed it in a dishpan with hot soapy water and air dried. Sooooo, works great but doesn't hold up great.

    Note from CFH: In reaching out to the manufacturer, the lids should be washed in lukewarm soapy water. Thank you for working with us behind-the-review-scenes to help you out!

    Tried it out, works great, but I recognize the straining filter mesh is very fine and will take some gentle handling through emptying and cleaning.

  6. answer to kids bringing yogurt to school for lunch

    I've been eyeing this for some time and finally bought it when I was ready to buy several items here. I've been making homemade yogurt for years, but because it doesn't stay as cold in a lunch pack and therefore seems quite thin in their lunch, my kids have poo-pooed yogurt for lunch. Problem solved. They LOVE this. My only challenge is to not waste the whey but I'm using it for soaking grains as much as possible for now.

    Makes great Greek yogurt. Save the whey & use it for baking bread. You can also use it for cheese making, sour cream etc.

    I love this strainer. I was trying to strainer using other methods, which made a mess and did work well. Now I make a haft gallon of yogurt, then place the yogurt in the strainer and let it set in the fridge for 18 hours. It comes out thick and creamy.

    I have been using butter cloth for years to strain my yogurt, I finally sucked it up and paid the money for this, totally worth every penny.

    I almost gave up making thick Greek style Coconut Yogurt. I bought 2 of these in case something happened to the first one or as a gift. It works great and I'm a Happy woman.

Items 1 to 10 of 13 total
  • From David B Borenstein at 6/1/2015 6:36 AM
    • Is it better to strain the yogurt before refrigerating it for 6 hours, or after?
    • It's best to stop the culturing process by putting it in the fridge. If you have a reusable yogurt, you are going to want to save some of it as your mother culture before you strain the yogurt! Set a portion as the mother aside, and strain the rest while in the fridge.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From lynda at 3/11/2015 8:22 PM
    • Do you need to purchase any type of cloth or does the strainer in the kit replace the cloth?
    • This strainer includes everything you need to strain your yogurt. No cloth needed! Simply pour the finished yogurt in the basket, cover and allow to sit in the refrigerator or at room temperature. The whey is collected in the bowl.

  • From UC at 4/9/2014 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.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Lisa at 2/8/2014 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 Juli Quezada at 12/21/2013 7:51 AM

  • From lindap at 2/25/2013 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.
