Why we purchase this yogurt makers
With this yogurt maker you can make yogurt as well as Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is made by straining the whey from normal yogurt so that it will become thicker but preserves the sour taste. To make this Greek yogurt the company has included a cotton bag also with the pack so that you can strain the yogurt. The cotton bag has a cord and an opening which makes it easy to hang the bag and strain the yogurt.
The yogurt container is made of BPA free plastic and is safe to use. This pack also contains a serving bowl along with the cotton bag. This kit contains a thermometer (made of stainless steel) so that you can control the temperature while cooking the yogurt. You need only two simple ingredients, yogurt culture and milk. You can use any type of milk; whole, slim, low-fat, pasteurized or raw milk. Just mix the culture with the milk and pour it to the BPA free container and place the two lids. There is a marker on the top glass lid to set the time. You can place the marker to the time (the numbers are displayed on the bottom part of the yogurt makers) wish to keep for fermentation.
