Question for Cuisi pro yogurt strainer owners

Does anyone know if this product is bpa free? I've looked online and can't get to the bottom of this! Thanks, Nikki

  1. Wow, I find hard to believe this exists.
    I am pretty sure that neither a metal strainer or Cheese cloth contain BPA and the work great.

      Ah well, I've had mine for a few years and I'm very glad it exists. No rigging up cheesecloth/strainer/etc.; no drips or spills. Fits almost 32 oz yogurt and slips nicely, closed, into fridge, to decant when desired. Can drain yogurt to a pretty firm spreadable cheese with time. Handwashes easily.

      For Nikki: my bet is not BPA-free. But send off an inquiry to the company, won't cost you more than a few seconds of your time:

    2. I have no idea if it has BPA, I've had mine for 5 years though and it's still in new condition.

      I've done the cheesecloth and strainer method, I've also done the coffee filter method. I like this one because it is compact, fully contained and is sealed with a lid. Putting a strainer over a bowl takes up a heck of a lot more room in the fridge and it isn't as easily sealed to keep out smells nor do I have to worry about it staying flat so it doesn't spill or the handle of the strainer getting bumped.

      1. On the Cuisipro website, some of the products are listed as specifically bpa free, but not this strainer.

        1. Nikki,

          I work for the Cuisipro brand and the strainers are BPA free. We will add this to our web site for the next person who has the same question. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Enjoy your yogurt cheese.

            Fantastic!! I actually emailed the company and have just heard back. You should definitely add it to the website because a lot if people won't buy products that aren't bpa free. Thank you so much! Nikki
