What is a yogurt maker?

With a yogurt maker - also called a yogurt maker - you can easily make your own yogurt from milk. It is basically a container with a lid that works either with or without electricity. The job of the yogurt maker is to keep the milk warm. This creates the perfect environment for the yogurt cultures. These heat-loving lactic acid bacteria feel most comfortable at around 40 °C and ferment your milk into delicious, creamy yogurt. The container usually comes with one or more jars. The jars are where the yogurt is made. You put them in your container so that your milk mixture ferments into yogurt in them. The jars are also ideal for storing the finished yogurt.

Making yogurt yourself with a yogurt maker has several advantages:

  • You decide what goes into it
  • No artificial colours or preservatives
  • The finished yogurt is cheaper than in the shops.
  • Vegan yogurt can also be made
  • It tastes especially good - we think!
  • Depending on the culture, mild or sour yogurt can be fermented

Yogurt maker with or without electricity?

Most yogurt makers are connected to the mains and keep your milk warm electrically. This allows the milk to become your yogurt. Some have an automatic switch-off with a timer. The timer determines when the yogurt maker switches off automatically. With other models, the appliance is switched off manually. If you forget to switch off the appliance, the yogurt may take too long to ripen. The consistency and taste will suffer.

Electroless yogurt makers work by heat insulation. Simply place a small container of milk in the yogurt maker. You then fill hot water into the container to keep the milk warm.

We would like to show you a few advantages why yogurt makers without electricity are often the better choice:

  • You can take it with you when you travel.
  • It is flexible if there is little space in the kitchen.
  • If you make yogurt a lot and often, you can save electricity.
