To use this machine you just have to make sure that the container was kept in the freezer for 24 hours covered for better and faster results. For plain Cuisinart frozen yogurt maker you will have to add yogurt, Greek yogurt (if you need it really thick) and sugar to the freezer container.

The freezer bowl can hold up to 2 quarts which is big enough for a family of 4. It does not take much time to prepare the frozen yogurt (just need maximum of 25 minutes). You can even make sorbet, and ice cream. There is a place to tuck in the cord so that you can keep the machine clean and tidy. The recipe book included helps you make delicious desserts at home. The ingredient spout allows you to add the mix-ins at the end (this should be done in the last 5 minutes).

First of all let me remind you that this is a frozen dessert maker not the conventional great yogurt maker. You have to first make the yogurt and then churn it in Cuisinart Pure Indulgence for the frozen treat. The power cord is short so you will have to move the machine around to get it connected to the socket.

The verdict

In simple words, this is the best product to make frozen desserts. But if you are in a search for just a yogurt maker this is not the product for you. But as I said before if you are a frozen dessert fan, this is a must have gadget in your kitchen.

First mix 1 quart of milk (can be skim milk or whole milk), and half cup yogurt (plain yogurt with live culture), then pour this mix to the container. You can add dry milk powder if you want the yogurt to be thicker. Place the container inside the yogurt makers and connect the device to the power. The fermentation will start and you have to disconnect when the time is done.

You may leave the yogurt maker for 6-12 hours to get a perfectly fermented yogurt. You just have to experiment with the fermentation time and find out what fits your taste buds more (The more you leave it for fermentation more tart the yogurt will become). Salton YM9 Yogurt Maker even has a storage area at the bottom to keep the power cord after use. If you need chilled yogurt you have to keep the yogurt in the freezer after the yogurt is ready for at least 2 hours. You can serve it after that with flavor or without adding flavor. When you clean the container and lid make sure that you are using hot soapy water and dry it with warm cloth.

Pros and cons

The Salton YM9 1-Quart Yogurt Maker is temperature controlled and can make up to 1 quart of yogurt at a time. The container is freezer friendly so you can directly keep it in the freezer. The Yogurt maker does not have on/off switch; you just have to plug it into the power socket.

The lid of the container is like a dome so it is difficult to place in the freezer with the lid. You do not get the thermometer to measure the temperature, if you want to check the temperature of the milk or the mix you need to buy one.

Review about this product

I searched online to know about this product more and what customers say about this. I found that the product is durable and is easy to use. I am asking why we should spend money at store to buy the yogurt when you can make homemade yogurt using Salton YM9 1-Quart Yogurt Maker. Now you may feel it is expensive but you can recover that after several batches of homemade yogurt. You can make the yogurt at home without any yogurt maker, but it is very difficult to control the temperature. So why to worry about all these factors – just buy the Salton YM9 1-Quart Yogurt Maker to prepare your delicious yogurt snack.
