"Woke fine for me"
Surprised to see a few folks that didn't have success with the second tier. I do usually throw a towel over the "incubator" just cuz it's winter and that's what we do to keep ourselves warm. I suspect that this is probably pretty key to keeping the temp a little better equilibrated for the upper deck. Otherwise for $8 it's a no brainer
"top jars did not 'jel' when lower level had hours earlier"
This was my first batch, but the bottom layer was done setting many hours before the top layer...they even 'scorched ' a little. Will do another set to see if it happens again. Response from CFH: Feel free to reach out to our Customer Support Team and we'd be happy to troubleshoot!
"Didn't work as expected"
the yogurt I placed on the top tier didn't stay warm enough to set. I removed the top jars and placed them inside the yogurt maker and they set up after an additional 4 hours. I was disappointed because the idea of the top shelf is great! Response from CFH: Be certain to test the temperature in your yogurt maker. It may be helpful to cover the unit with a towel or something similar depending on the temperature in your yogurt maker. We ask that you contact Customer Support with any questions or concerns regarding your products.
The top tier is worthless. The temperature is only 85 degrees so it doesn't make yogurt. Note from CFH~ Please contact customer support for troubleshooting advice usually a simple adjustment can be made for better results.
"This product works perfectly with my EuroCuisine Y100."
Exactly as advertised! 5 stars
Great to have more avalable yogurt!
"dissapointed with the plain lids no date wheel"
Overall ok, jars are the same, but the lids are plain with no date wheel. I was disappointed with this aspect. I would gladly pay more for the option of date wheel lids.
"Good value "
Great little jars. Don't seal tight very well. No day indicator on top of lid.
I have not used these jars yet. I like the way they look and feel. Looking forward to making my first batch of coconut yogurt.
"Makes it easier to keep up with the need for fresh yogurt"
Very happy to have an entire extra set of jars so I can make the next batch of yogurt before the last of the previous batch has been consumed. My work schedule doesn't make it easy to make the yogurt on a tight schedule. My only issue is that the lids do not have the date option on them.
"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.
"great idea and great price"
love it! worked great
"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.
"Excellent for making whey"
Excellent for making whey from Kefir
"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.
"~~ What you need when the milk spills! ~~"
I have been making yogurt in my Yogotherm for years now and absolutely love it. No matter where we are I can still make a successful batch due to no electric power needed. HOWEVER once in a while someone jogs the freshly cultured milk and milk spills out of the pail and penetrates this styrofoam insulator. Although I immediately wash it, I have yet to find a way to get it perfectly clean so after a while mold beings to grow! Yuk! Time to purchase a replacement. I am SO thankful that Yogotherm sales replacements. Now I am back to a "like new" Yogotherm and hoping no spills will happen. Due to it not normally coming into contact with the yogurt/milk this insert does not require cleaning after each use. I think this is the second or third insert I have purchased from Cultures for Health. Their service, shipping and prices have always been good. Happy yogurt making!
"~~ If your pail splits or molds grab a new one! ~~"
Although I absolutely love my Yogotherm, I do not like the design of the pail lid. Maybe it's just me but I find that after a while black mold starts to grow in the crevice of the lid. I wash it carefully after each use but I think this is the third pail I am on now. I do make yogurt every week so this is in almost constant use. To clean the mold out you have to use a thin sharp knife which of course then creates a fine cut making a further growing ground. After so many cleans I discard the pail and purchase a new one. Does it put me off using a Yogotherm? No! This yogurt maker is SO versatile. No matter where we are I can still make a successful batch due to no electric power needed. I am just thankful that there is somewhere to purchase a replacement when needed. Thanks Cultures for Health! Happy yogurt making!
Having an extra bucket on hand has come in very handy!
Holds a lot of yogurt and works well
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!!
"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.
Starting at: $4.00
"Good for yogurt!"
I used this to strain yogurt for making labneh and frozen yogurt. It works well. It will shrink if you accidentally put it in the dryer. :) Even so, I got the 12x15, which shrank to about 10x12, and is still more than big enough for my needs (I strain about a pint at a time)
"very useful product"
Good Quality organic cotton bag, well sewn. I got the 12 x 15" bag and use it for straining Greek yogurt primarily but find other uses as well. It stands up to the boiling for sanitation and is cheaper than a Greek yogurt maker.
"Great for straining yogurt"
I got this bag to strain my yogurt. It works great. I can hang it by the drawstring and in an hour or so I have have delicious greek yogurt.
"Great tasting yogurt"
I love the taste of the Mild Flavor Yogurt Starter. When I made it came out very smooth and creamy. I shared it with a co-worker and she loves it. I will buy it again.
I use raw milk from pasture-raised cows (I do heat the milk to 180 degrees). I've been making yogurt with this starter for about 9 months and have it every morning for breakfast with fresh blueberries and sliced almonds and it's fantastic!!!!
"the perfect balance"
I really enjoy the mild flavor culture taste. It rises above to taste light and rich at the same time. I love using it in recipes and to make pasta salad creamy with yogurt.
By far the most delicious yogurt I've ever tasted. Will continue to buy for a long time!
"The Most Consistent Vegan Yogurt Starter I've Tried. Great results Every time!"
I'm grateful I found Cultures for Health Vegan Yogurt starter. I've tried others that produced runny, lumpy, and watery vegan yogurts. My winning combo that've I'm sticking with (because it produces creamy, delicious thick unsweetened yogurt everytime) is: 2 cartons Westbrae Organic Unsweetened Vanilla Soy Milk, 1 1/2 cups raw cashews (soaked for at least 3 hours) and one packet yogurt starter. I blend the cashews with 1/2 the soy milk, heat that up with the remaining soymilk to 110 degrees (F) then add the yogurt starter, mix and pour into my yogurt maker and set for 10 hours. Perfect every time and much more affordable & delicious than any store bought Vegan yogurt and with none of the added sugar. (I mix with fresh fruit for natural sweetness.) Enjoy! Thank you for a great product!
"Great Vegan Culture"
I am very excited to find a vegan yogurt culture. This culture has worked great every time I use it. I have found that I can use 1/2 cup of the previous batch of yogurt to start another batch at least once so am able to get at least 2 quarts (my yogurt maker holds a quart at a time) from each packet of culture. I use soy milk for my base and after several tries have settled on culturing the soy milk and then adding in the sweetener, thickener, and flavoring. I have tried several different thickeners and my favorite is instant clear gel which I mix with a dry sweetener and blend with the cultured milk, the flavoring, and any additional sweetener I want. The yogurt I come out with is most similar to Silk brand soy yogurt.
