Donvier yourt maker...any good?

I'm thinking about buying one and wonder if anyone has any experience with this...also, does it eat up electricity making the yogurt expensive to make?

  1. I don't even particularly even LIKE yogurt, but I bought a Donvier yogurt maker yesterday, hoping it would change my mind. And it has! My 3 year old and I made our first batch of yogurt last night, and I have eaten way too much of it today. I like it with crunchy cereal mixed in. I enjoy the tart taste.

    1. I ended up buying a Eurocuisine model because it had glass, rather than plastic, jars. I followed advice from adding a little powdered organic skim milk into the mix to soak up the extra whey....and have been turning out the thickest, creamiest fat free yogurt---using skim milk. I also dumped some into a coffee filter lined strainer and let it sit covered in the fridge for a few hours and made cheese, that I spiced up with sumac, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Yum!
