    "Tiny!"

    I ordered the basic thermometer, but it turned out to be a mini thermometer. Very tiny and dials are hard to read! Response from CFH: The details section note this thermometer has a 1-inch dial display and is 5 inches long.

    "Basic it is"

    There is nothing fancy, just a "Basic Thermometer." If you don't need accuracy or long reach it will do a fine job.

    "Easier than what I was using."

    When I decided to make my own yogurt, I was using a candy thermometer -- something I already had. This is much easier to position and read.

    - BuckIrose

    "Neutral"

    The thermometer works but disagrees with my other thermometers. I have two others that show to add starter at a lower temperature. I don't know which is most accurate. Also, the round top dial is very small and hard to read. Response from CFH: Thermometers can be calibrated. Please contact Customer Support for advice or for replacements for defective products.

Please contact Customer Support with any questions or concerns regarding your products.

    "Reliable and easy to read"

    I use it for making yogurt, and feta cheese. I use it to be sure my hand feeding formula is the right temperature for baby parrots. Easy to read and very reliable.

    "Good quality"

    I ordered this thermometer because I had a coupon. This is my first digital thermometer. I like it because it is waterproof. I use it to make yogurt and kefir. In the past, I have bought Taylor brand standard thermometers and found them to be good quality. I'm expecting this one to hold up well also.

    "Sturdy and well made. "

    Sturdy and well made. I've only had it for a short time, but so far I'm pleased with it. It works nicely for draining our kefir cheese. It can be a little hard to get some of the dry bits out of the inside of the bag, but turning it inside out helps.

    - Me

    "great idea and great price"

    love it! worked great

    - Nanny

    "Good solid product"

    So far this bag has held up well to regular use, it's solidly made and I think it will hold up well for years to come.

    - Larane

    "Excellent for making whey"

    Excellent for making whey from Kefir

    - Dennis

    "A must have need to make cheese"

    Not good by itself. Must use in combination with the Butter Muslin for perfection. Very Strong and good filtration. No sign of weakness yet.

    "Necessary to filter kefir whey from curd..."

    Excellent use, perfect fit for the bag i bought from this web, and good thing I bought it. I didn't know this was necessary.

    "Great"

    Holds a lot of yogurt and works well

    - Julia

    "Tick Tock"

    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!!

    - Sarah

    "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!

    "works well, must use gently"

    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.

    "Awesome product "

    Was using cotton bags before-would not go back! This product makes Greek yoghurt simply with minimal mess. Love it!

    "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.

    "So easy to use"

    I live in California so I dont use the heat much in the winter. Instead of heating the house I put these on some large canning jars with my mix in them and put them in a cabinet. I also got a cheap heating pad and set it next to the jars. This keeps the jars warm enough for the critters and now I know how the temp is. I was afraid the heating pad would be to hot.

    - Sandra

    "stick on thermometer"

    My downstairs kitchen is not heated so these little stick on thermometers have come in handy. I now know that just turning the light on inside my oven raises the temp. to 88 F. so after a short time, it is best to move my heirloom yogurt to top of the stove and just cover with a towel to hold in the warmth.

    "Great!"

    A tad small to read but not bad at all.

    "Very handy! "

    Perfect little helper and easy for my seven year-old to use when he helps make batches of our "soda." Unfortunately, I lost my first one and had to replace it, but fortunately it's very inexpensive. Very handy!

    "great product"

    These work great for my kombucha and water kefir!
