It's easy to make yogurt at home with this product. The instructions were a little awkward to follow at first. We're still experimenting with getting the texture exactly as we like it, but the booklet offers a good troubleshooting guide. The glass jars are easily cleaned in the dishwasher, and the unit itself is easy to clean.
My first try did not give very thick yogurt but after a few tries and knowing that I have to bring milk to a slow boil for 1 minute and then letting the milk cool to exactly 112 degrees before adding my cultures it works just great!
When I was growing up in the 70's, we had a yogurt maker sort of like this one, but with glass jars and not plastic. My parents weren't hippies. No, that's not the reason we had one...it was because my Dad was a manufacturer's representative for house ware products and he sold this item. I remember the yogurt would come out rich and creamy and very tart. The Eware Home Yogurt Maker delivers the same results. I really like the product. Rich, creamy yogurt for only about 19 cents a container. I think the containers are about 5 ounces. I add powdered milk and use whole milk because my family likes their yogurt thick. The directions are simple and give tips so that you can customize the product to your taste (no pun intended). I'm very happy with this product. Great value and super delivery by Overstock. I don't think they are selling the cups separately or I'd buy more of them.
