Deni Yogurt Maker
No Extra Jars!
The yogurt maker is OK-basic and simple to use, but if you were planning to order extra jars from Deni, as I was, you will be disappointed. They answered me abruptly with a resounding no. I am debating whether to send it back, since I really wanted to keep a batch going all the time. I did not appreciate the lack of customer accommodation from Deni. QVC has spoiled me with customer service.
Almost Paid For
I love this machine. Three batches of yogurt and the machine is almost paid for. So easy to use, and the yogurt tastes great. I prefer to use 12 hours to get the nice thick yogurt. I wish the jars were a little bigger because it takes 1 & 1/2 jars to make 1 cup which is what my diet calls for.
just like my mom's home made yogurt
I received this little big wonder yesterday and I tried last night. This morning I had six little wonderful home made yogurts. I remembered my own childhood days as my mom was making these tresures for us. I tried couple different yogurt makers in years but this one is simply the best. It is so easy to use. My only concern is like some others says we need more replacement jars. Maybe colorful ones :)
LOVE MY DENI YOGURT MAKER!!
How do I love thee, my Deni Yougurt Maker, let me count the ways!
1. Super easy to make super delicious yogurt!
2. Quality of each batch is consistent, time after time.
3. Huge, huge savings over store bought yogurt! How about $.31 a jar compared to over $1.00 for the little 6 oz. cartons at the store!
4. Make yogurt while you're sleeping! I make it in the evening, and turn it on when I go to bed. 8 hrs. gives you regular yogurt, and 12 hrs gives you very thick, Greek style yogurt. Yummy!
5. This little machine takes up very little space!
6. Other yogurt makers are larger and more expensive, some a LOT more expensive.
If you eat yogurt, you can't miss with this little baby! Buy one and be happy!
A very simple little machine and with only a few steps and 2 ingredients it makes consistently good yogurt! Try it and you'll see what I mean. Th timer knob is very loose and I thought it might be faulty, but it worked like a charm. I can't praise this little machine enough. The yogurt is smooth and not at all bitter or biting as store bought yogurt can be. I also love the glass containers. I am very impressed. It's the story of the little yogurt maker that could! Yogurt lovers will be delighted with this purchase.
This yogurt maker is great!
I own two of these I bought last year and have made many jars of yogurt. Also I have made raw milk yogurt and it works great for that too! I leave it go for the full time which is overnight and its always perfect whether I use starter or yogurt base.If it looks a bit thin I just refrigerate and it firms up just right.
Didn't warm to proper temp
Based on the multitude of positive reviews I must conclude that my Deni Yogurt Maker was defective. I'm sending it back because I made two batches, one using starter another using plain yogurt, and neither resulted in yogurt. I checked the temperature the second time to see if the machine was warm enough and it only registered 80 degrees. I'm sending it back. I'm giving the machine two stars simply because it was inexpensive, compact and apparently works for most people -- just not for me. If the jar lids screwed tight -- and the process of boiling milk, cooling it then using maker for up to 10 hours didn't take so long -- I'd ask for a replacement. But, instead, I'm going to ask for a refund. I'll shop around for another highly rated machine that makes more yogurt in less time. Too bad I have to pay for shipping to return a defective machine.
Easy as 1234
Yes it is as easy as all the others have said Boil milk let cool put in starter and pour in jars ....wait for timer to sound! I purchased another one for my daughter and she loves it too!! We both got more jars and now always have our own yogurt...Thanks Deni for making it so easy
Easy to use
Like another reviewer, I wasn't sure it was working at first but was pleasantly surprised the next morning with the results. I used 1 % milk and 1/2 cup natural greek yogurt. The result after 10 hr. was still almost as thick as greek yogurt. I added canned peaches with a little of the syrup---wonderful. I feel good knowing that I am eating a fresh yogurt with no unnatural products. This machine will be used weekly as I like to eat yogurt daily with varied fruit/ flavors.
I received this a week ago and tried it right away. Very happy with the turn out. I am experimenting with different flavors and haven't been disappointed yet. Just wish it were easier to find replacement jars so I don't have to wait till it is all gone to make more.
No more store-bought yogurt ever!
I was so impressed by how easy it was to make yogurt. The taste of homemade is so much lighter and freasher than store-bought. Even without any other flavorings it was quite good, but with a few drops of maple syrup it was super good. I can't wait to crank out many more batches and try all sorts of flavorings. Highly recommended!
This is a wonderful machine!
I have always loved yogurt, and last year discovered the Greek yogurt and loved how fresh and clean tasting it was compared to some other brands I have tried. You cant get the best quality yogurt with active cultures cheaply, so I would get some as I could afford them. I saw this machine and even though I was intimitated to try to make my own, all of the reviews were so helpful and positive that I went ahead and bought it....and tried it. I used 2% milk and boiled 4cups of milk and then let it get to room temp....added my 1/2 cup of yogurt from the store with live cultures and poured it into the machine and turned the knob to 10 hours......it was so simple that I couldnt believe it would actually work. Then I tasted it with some honey and OMG.....so delicious and a wonderful texture. Such a great product....and I will be able to use the hormone free and natural, healthy milk I want and save soooo much money this way. Amazing!
