Yogurt is a great, guilt-free snack for both adults and kids. With this yogurt maker, it's easy to add favorite flavors--including exotic and sweet fruits, rich crunchy nuts, and natural sweeteners--to basic yogurt. Just follow the recipes, supplied by the manufacturer, and a nutritious snack, with very little fat and no preservatives (like most commercial brands), is not too far away. Making yogurt takes from 4 to 10 hours to process, depending on desired tartness of the batch. If you're looking for frozen yogurt, you do have to chill it for 2 hours in the freezer before consumption after it's made. The yogurt can be stored up to one week. --Teresa Simanton

- Great Yogurt Maker
Love this yogurt maker. My favorite was a 5-container one from the early 80's, not made anymore. This one is a close second. I liked having the ready-to-add 'touches'individually cups. Now, I let it set, then put into my own containers for ready-to-mix and eat style.
Thought I would add tips for yogurt cheese and Greek-style thickened yogurt.
For any kind of strained yogurt cheese or thickened yogurt--I let it cool/set first.
Been making it for years.
I use knee-high panty hose. Can find them cheap. Make sure to make the knot in it first, then cut, makes two strainers.
Wrap it over the edge of a small bowl, fill with amount you want. For yogurt cheese, I keep it about the size of an large orange at most. Otherwise the consistency isn't the same. For thickened yogurt, load it up.
I have a 3M plastic clip over my sink that is stuck to the cabinet on the right. Hangs over the right back edge of the sink, out of the way, and a little high-up, doesn't splash. . I wrap the hose around the clip.
I like straining it at room temperature for a while, then back into the fridge overnight--in a small bowl elevated on a plastic ball jar lid, then next day/evening hang it out in room temperature for an hour or so. The second time 'out' iI squeeze it a little to gauge how soft it is after I hang it.
More whey seems to drain out at room temperature. The hose stretches with the weight of the yogurt and forms a compact ball--for cheese, ready to mix-in herbs, shallots or garlic powder. Fresh garlic can overpower the cheese. You can rinse and reuse the strainers or toss and make new ones.
Not worth the trouble to me to use cheesecloth and the other strainers I can't hang at room temperature....more info
- Love It!
I make a fresh batch of yogurt every week with this product... It is extremely easy! My baby loves yogurt, and I was spending a fortune buying a brand without all the added ingredients and processing of most commercial brands. I use fage (yogurt brand) as my starter, dry milk, and organic fat free milk - Saving money and creating a much better tasting yogurt. I add some blended fresh fruit to each serving and feed to my daughter. Love this thing!! ...more info
- Yummy Yogurt
I got this for Christmas and love it! You just heat your ingredients, cool them a bit and pour into the yogurt maker. I use 1% milk and let it do it's thing for about 5-6 hours. Then, I take it out and flavor it how I like it. Can't wait to go to the farmer's market this summer to get fresh fruit to put in it. I like this because it uses the BPA free plastic. If I remember correctly the maker with the invididual cups has BPA in it. I also like that this maker is such a great price!...more info
- Broke After Only a Few Uses
This product worked wonderfully for the first 10 uses or so. Now it doesn't heat up at all........more info
- "OMG, CREAMMY YOGURT SO EASY"
I BOUGHT A DIGITAL COOKING THERMOMETER FOR ABOUT $7.00 AND OH MY GOD THIS YOGURT IS SO EASY TO MAKE AND SO MUCH BETTER THAN STORE BOUGHT, NO EXTRA SUGAR OR STUFF!!!!!!! I USED THE POWDER TYPE CULTURE, TRIED TWO DIFFERENT KINDS, NOT MUCH DIFFERENT, SAME TASTE AND TEXTURE. THE SALTON 1 QT IS SO MUCH BETTER AND EASIER THAN THE OTHER LARGER MODELS WITH ALL THOSE STUPID LITTLE CUPS TO WASH AND STORE. THIS IS HOW I DO IT....... PUT A LARGE BOWL IN THE SINK WITH 20 ICE CUBES AND A LITTLE WATER. PUT ONE PACKET OF POWDER CULTURE IN A ONE CUP MEASUREING CUP AND SET ASIDE. PLUG IN YOUR SALTON YOGURT MAKER. PUT A 2 QT SAUCE PAN ON THE STOVE. PUT 4 CUPS OF LOW FAT MILK IN THE PAN. PUT A DIGITAL THERMOMETER IN THE MILK, (BALANCE ON THE HANDEL OF THE PAN). TURN THE HEAT ON HIGH. STIR, ONCE EVERY 20 TO 30 SECONDS JUST SO THE MILK IN THE PAN IS ALL THE SAME TEMPURTURE AND WONT SCORTCH ON THE BOTTOM. (IT STICKS A LITTLE BIT TO THE BOTTOM OF THE PAN, NO PROUBLEM, JUST DON'T LET IT BURN," AND DON'T WALK AWAY", THIS HEATING PROCESS ONLY TAKES A FEW MINUTES!) WATCH THE THERMOMETER AND WHEN IT REACHES 200 DEGREES, TAKE IT OFF THE STOVE AND PUT THE PAN IN THE ICE BOWL IN THE SINK. (CAREFUL, AND DON'T DROP THE THERMOMETER ON THE WAY TO THE SINK, I TAKE IT OUT OF THE HOT MILK WHILE IT'S STILL ON THE STOVE, AND THEN PUT IT BACK IN THE MILK ONCE THE PAN IS IN THE ICE BOWL) STIR THE MILK TO COOL AND EVEN THE TEMPUTURE. WHEN THE MILK COOLS TO 115 DEGREES, TAKE THE PAN OUT OF THE ICE. POUR ABOUT 1/2 CUP OF THE COOLED MILK INTO THE MEASUREING CUP OF POWDER CULTURE. STIR THIS AND MIX REALLY GOOD. DON'T WASTE TIME DOING THIS, THE MILK IS STILL COOLING. (IT NEEDS TO BE WARM ENOUGH TO ACTVATE THE CULTURE TO MAKE IT GROW, AND NOT TO HOT TO KILL IT) NOW POUR THE 1 CUP CULTURE MIXTURE INTO THE PAN OF MILK, STIR, AND POUR ALL THE MILK INTO THE YOGURT MAKER. PUT THE LID ON AND LET STAND FOR 10 HOURS. THIS SOUNDS LIKE A LOT TO DO, BUT IT IS REALLY REALLY EASY. I DO THIS ABOUT 9 PM, AND PUT THE FINISHED YOGURT IN THE FRIGE AT 7AM THE NEXT MORNING. IF YOU WANT CREAMMY GREEK STYLE YOGURT THAT WILL SEND YOUR FRIENDS INTO NEXT WEEK, TRY THIS...... AFTER YOUR YOGURT HAS THOURALLY COOLED IN THE REFRIGTOR, TAKE IT OUT AND PUT IT IN A MESH STRAINER AND LET STAND FOR APX. 1 HOUR. ABOUT 1/2 TO 3/4 CUP OF CLEAR WHEY LIQUID WILL DRAIN OUT OF THE YOGURT AND LEAVE THE BEST AND CREAMMYEST TREAT IN THE STRAINER. I USE IN SALAD DRESSING, AS SOUR CREAM, IN DESERTS, AND WITH FRESH FRUIT FOR BREAKFAST. TRY A WEDGE OF AVACADO ON ANY LETTUCE WITH TWO SCOOPS OF HOME MADE GREEK STYLE, A DASH OF CURRY POWDER, SOME MANGO CHUTNEY, AND TOP OFF WITH A LITTLE BALSAMIC...... WHAT DO YOU THINK??????????
*DON'T FORGET TO KEEP 1/2 CUP OF YOUR GREEK GOLD SET ASIDE IN THE FRIGE AS THE STARTER FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL BATCHES OF YOGURT. YOU CAN MAKE ABOUT 4 TO 6 BATCHES FROM ONE PACKET OF POWDER CULTURE THAT YOU USED ON THE FIRST BATCH,( AFTER THAT IT GETS TIRED, AND IT'S TIME TO USE NEW CULTURE) JUST SUBSTITUTE 1/2 CUP OF YOUR YORGUT FOR THE POWDER CULTURE, MIX INTO THE 1/2 CUP MILK, AND POUR INTO ALL THE MILK, AND CONTINUE ." ENJOY"...more info
- Even at $20, it's only so-so
I purchased this last month, before the price went through the roof. I love the fact that it's one large container - no more scraping out two or three little jars to put breakfast on the table. However, it doesn't have many things which other cheaper yogurt makers have.
There's no timer or way to turn it off, other than unplugging the unit, so you have to remember on your own. It also means I worry about leaving it on overnight, and hope that I won't oversleep.
There's also no thermometer, which I've become accustomed to from previous machines I've had. Maybe I'm spoiled, but I'd love to see a little more attention to detail here.
Other than that, it makes fine yogurt. All told, I'd probably still pick the convenience of one large container, but buyers should be aware what they're getting....more info
- $138?!? Seriously?
I was about to buy this Salton yogurt maker because I looked at it the other day and thought, "Huh, $25 is pretty reasonable to me even if other people think that's still too expensive." So I come back to this link and it's now $138? What the heck, Amazon? Needless to say, I'll be incubating my yogurt in the oven as usual tonight. Geez!...more info
- Salton 1 Qt. yogurt maker
I have already used this product and I really like it. I didn't want a unit that made a lot and this size is perfect for my needs. I live a ways from a shopping center and now I can have yogurt in my refrigerator whenever I choose. The yogurt maker is small and doesn't take up too much room. The best part is the ease of use....more info
- Good investment and great product
Eating a homemade yogurt is the most loved thing in my home. Salton yogurt maker has given us what we were lacking all these days in our daily meal. All it needs is a good culture. The milk can be heated in micorwave also. I recommend this product to anyone and everyone...more info

This works even with a stainless steel insert! I do not like plastic insert. It is nice and I hope everyone uses it....more info
- Homemade Yogurt is the BEST !!!
The Salton YM9 1-Quart Yogurt Maker was on my Wish List for over a year. My family finally got the hint and ordered it for my birthday, along with the Cuisipro Donvier Yogurt Cheese Maker, and the The Book Of Yogurt by Sonia Uvezian.
I have been making a quart of fresh, homemade yogurt a week since I got these items and I am very pleased with the outcome. The Salton "incubator" is easy to use; my only problem with the design is the slot and channel for the included spoon (which you don't really need) makes cleanup a little more time consuming. The unit includes a brief instruction guide which was simple to follow and was sufficient to get me up and running. Where Salton suggests a candy or deep-frying thermometer, I've been having great success with a Taylor digital readout "chef's" stem-type thermometer. It was under $15.00 and very accurate for yougurt making. Many home cooks already have one in their kitchen anyway.
The Cheese Maker is basically a high-quality stainless steel mesh strainer suspended in a heavy-duty plastic container with a tight-fitting lid. When a batch of yougurt is complete, spoon up to 1 cup of it into this device, and place it in the fridge for several hours or overnight. The result is a thick, creamy "cheese", the consistency of sour cream or even whipped cream cheese. Since I use fat-free milk to make the yogurt, the cheese is a great, guilt-free substitute for cream cheese, and can substitute for it in almost any recipe. In the Donvier booklet is a recipe for a yogurt cheesecake I'm just dying to try! Although the same results can be obtained by using a cheesecloth-lined strainer over a bowl, the Donvier unit takes up less space in the refrigerator and is fairly easy to clean.
The Book Of Yogurt by Sonia Uvezian contains many international recipes from every food category, as well as basic instructions for yogurt making that embellish what comes with the yogurt maker itself. I've tried a few, and they are wonderful.
- Making Yogurt
Excellent product. We no longer have to search the store shelves for yogurt without all the chemicals normally put in them. Yogurt made in this product tastes great. We have some every morning. It is simple to use and reliable....more info
- Great little yogurt maker!
I love everything about this yogurt maker. I like the fact that it is one container because I can then dump it all into a strainer to make thick greek yogurt...more info
- Simple but really does a great job
It really makes great yogurt with very little muss and fuss. you can easily control how tart you make the yogurt....more info
- Yogurt making for all
It's fun making yogurt. I am making yogurt with the Salton yogurt maker and also using a thermos. Both methods work well but the Salton yogurt maker is more consistent because the temperature is stable.
My only complaints are that the top to the plastic container is not secured, you have to be careful when you pick it up, and the container has ridges making it difficult to get all the yogurt out. However, the yogurt maker works equally as well with other containers including ones made of glass.
I would recommend the Salton yogurt maker. It will pay for it self in no time and homemade yogurt is fun to make and delicious....more info
- Great! But don't like the plastic container.
I am really excited about this yogurt maker. The only drawback is that container inside where you put the yogurt is plastic (number 5) and with all the health implications coming out these days concerning plastic and endocrine disruptors leaching into your food, I would prefer that they use a glass container. I am actually experimenting with using a glass jar that I found fits inside. I hope it works!...more info
- Salton yogurt maker-xmas gift
I purchased this for my daughter. She is really enjoying it. So far she has made two kinds of yogurt and the machine works easily. Clean-up is a breeze. I think if you want to make your own yogurt this is a great little machine....more info
- Great yogurt maker
I love the Salton yogurt maker. It makes yogurt making so easy. It is done in one container so you do not have to deal with little storage jars. It is really just a simple device to keep a steady temperature. You just plug it in and let it go. After it is done, if you strain the yogurt while in the refrigerator it becomes perfect creamy Greek style. Search the web for informative sites about the yogurt making process.
Watch the price. It seems to fluctuate....more info
- Great product
Works great for keeping constant temperature during incubation period. I like the fact that I make one large container and not many little containers.
It does not have automatic turnoff, so I set my stove timer for 7 hours to let me know time to transfer container to fridge.
It has two angular indentations in container (the spoon, which I don't use) nestles on the outside of container), so I'm more careful about making sure that area gets cleaned properly. Otherwise, easy to clean.
After making yogurt, I strain about 1 cup of whey in Donvier yougurt cheese maker, which I also rated a 5.
- Delicious yogurt
I just purchased this and made yogurt using Easiyo Custard Style Base and Culture Easiyo Custard Style Vanilla Yogurt Base and Culture, 7-1/2-Ounce. I when I purchased the Easiyo I thought it was just a starter, but it also is a base as well and you just need to add water. I used it in the Salton and left it for about 7 hours and it came out perfect. I'm currently making some yogurt using starter cultures from a previous batch of yogurt. I prefer to scoop some yogurt out and then add fruit to it just before eating it. Some people like the yogurt makers where you make several little jars at a time. I think the yogurt stays creamier when you add the fruit just before eating it. Also, I prefer having to clean one container instead of lots of little jars. Some people complained about a lack of a timer, but I have it in my kitchen and 3 appliances already have timers, so I just set one of them. I highly recommend this product. It's easy and fun to use and the yogurt is delicious....more info
- A great gadget that adds value to the kitchen
OK, you can make yogurt in a crockpot or a cooler filled with warm water, etc. ...anything that keeps the temperature constant for the yogurt culture to incubate. However, it is NICE to have a gadget with a small footprint that takes minimal effort to use and is easy to figure out. We have made consistently excellent yogurt every other day with this handy machine and are grateful for it. It has already paid for itself in the money we've saved on store-bought yogurt. At $3 or more per quart, it pays for itself after 8 quarts ($3 x 8 = $24) and we've already made 9 quarts in three weeks. ...more info
- Why is the price so ridiculous?
I like shopping at Amazon for convenience. But this price is really dumb. I see it on other websites for $16-$25.
I noticed a complaint that BlackSheepDeals has had other pricing issues....more info
- The Best Yogurt I've Ever Eaten
I love this thing! It is so simple to use and makes GREAT yogurt.
As was suggested by one of the other customers, I started using wide mouth quart jars. With the screw on lids, there is less of a chance of a spill and I have the freedom to make a second batch while the first is cooling. It couldn't be easier to use. You simply add dry milk to a quart of milk (I use 1%), heat it (I use a candy thermometer to get it to between 150 and 175 degrees), cool it to about 100 degrees, stir in your yogurt culture, put it in the jars, and put it in the yogurt maker. 4 hours later, take it out and put it into the refrigerator. About two hours after that you have a quart of perfect yogurt.
I bought mine in conjunction with the Yogurt Cheese maker and usually strain the result to make even thicker European Style yogurt.
The directions say you may have to start over with a new culture after a few batches because the culture will get weak. I have yet to have a problem but perhaps it is because I make about 2 batches a week. My daughter and I flavor it with homemade sugar-free jam and it's a great after school or after work snack. I don't think either of us will ever eat store bought yogurt again.
When comparing yogurt makers, I looked at several different models. I considered one that turns off when it's finished cooking, but you still have to take it out and put it into the refrigerator. With this one, I simply set a reminder in my cell phone. I can then set it for another hour or two if the yogurt is not thick enough. This only happened once because I heated the milk for two batches at one and put the second into the refrigerator while the first batch cooked so I put it into the yogurt maker cold. I also looked at several models with multiple small jars. This seemed like too much effort to be worth it. I like the one jar idea much better.
I am working on some healthy recipes as well and have made cheese cake with the strained yogurt. It is not quite as good as the real thing, but considering it is actually good for you, it really can't be beat!...more info
- it does nothing extra.
I don't like to fail so may be that's why I am challenging myself to make yogurt. I thought this will do the magic, you have to do everything manually before you put the mixture in this machine, how on earth I am going to bring the milk to 100f? put your finger and count to 10 didn't work, how would I know the starter still working. all this machine does is keep it warm, it does not tell when it is ready, doesn't have a thermostat, the cover does not close well, the price is cheap but why buy that if you have to do all the guessing work and then just keep it warm which you can do naturally on a hot day or after you use your oven or with thick covering to the mix, I just think it is a stupid machine, does nothing.......more info
- yogurt maker
I've never owned a yogurt maker before so I don't have too much to compare it to, but I really do like it. Making yogurt is really easy and being the novice that I am, it still turns out perfect everytime. I also drain it using cheesecloth to make a thicker "Greek style" yougurt and can substitute this for sour cream. I would recommend this to anyone interested in making their own yogurt....more info
- SALTON YM-9 1 QUART YOGURT MAKER
I am enjoying my yogurt maker so very much. I make soy yogurt using the recipe found in the instruction book by substituting soy milk and Better Than Milk powder in place of the regular milk and powdered milk. I heartily recommend this machine. My daughter-in-law invested in a more expensive maker that only makes one pint and was very impressed with my Salton YM9 1-quart YOGURT MAKER. I am very pleased....more info
- Great Product, Great Price
We highly recommend this yogurt maker. Easy to use. Very convenient. Easy to clean. We like making one big batch rather than several smaller containers. It comes with a little scoop that we never use--totally unnecessary. It would be nice to have an extra container with a sealed top for storing in the frig---the lid on the container is loose rather than air tight. But I feel that for the price we can live without perfection (-: I don't think you'll be disappointed with this product....more info
- Great yohurt maker
This product offers great value at an inexpensive price. I use purchased cultures. Once I didn't warm the unit up prior to adding the cooked milk and cultures, and it still produced great extra firm and tart yogurt. Very pleased with this purchase....more info
- Yummy yogurt
The yogurt maker is so easy to use. So much easier than monitoring and maintaining the oven temperature at 110 degrees. I highly recommend it. ...more info
- I love it!
I absolutely love this product. Though it seemed time consuming at first, it now takes me only about 15 minutes to get my batch of milk ready to process. I use 1 percent milk to make my yogurt as I find that little bit of fat really helps the texture, and I add 2/3 cup powdered milk along with my starter yogurt which makes an extra thick yogurt that is just the right texture when I mix it with thawed frozen fruit. Better yet, this yogurt TASTES so much better than anything I can buy in the store. I generally use an organic or all natural yogurt as a starter that contains at least 4 yogurt cultures since most commercial yogurts only contain 2. And I find I can use my own yogurt for a quite a few batches before I need to buy another commercial yogurt as a starter.
Like many other reviewers, I took the plastic container out, and use a 1 qt wide mouth canning jar because it is less flimsy and it allows me to get another batch of yogurt going before I completely finish the first. ...more info
- I LOVE the Salton YM9
I love having fresh yogurt and so easy to make. I don't use the interior container, instead I use old yogurt containers to 'cook' it in. Also purchased the greek yogurt maker and am saving a lot of money on making my own. I make my own yogurt about every other day. I do purchase a new starter (small container of plain quality yogurt) about every two weeks. ...more info
