Yogurt Cheese Strainer
In as little as 2 hours this fine-mesh strainer will turn 3 cups of yogurt into 1 cup of yogurt cheese, if you desire a thicker cheese, drain for up to 24 hours. The result is a wonderful yogurt cheese which can be enjoyed alone, with herbs or used as a low-fat alternative to cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream and whipped cream.
You can also make a delightful Greek yogurt by draining yogurt until a desired consistency is reached.

Did not need it but will use it often.
I have been making yogurt cheese for over 30 years, and have equipment to make cheese. This is a compact and quick maker which will produce an amount that most people will enjoy and cleaning is easy.
I love it!
Soooooo much easier than a nut bag or cheesecloth. I only wish there was a bigger size - I now have 3 of these to accommodate making yogurt cheese from one gal of yogurt. Thank you!!
Compact size = small quantities
The small size means it doesn't take up much space in the cabinet or refrigerator, but it also doesn't strain much at one time -- not a problem for my purposes. I appreciate that it is easier to set up and clean up than cloth straining methods.
I've been using this for about a year, and it works great! Low reviews because of size are silly--its size is right in the description, so if you want something for a larger quantity, get something else. If you can use something that drains 3 cups of yogurt into 1-1.5 cups drained, look no further! It works as designed, the lid keeps out other refrigerator odors, and it cleans up with little more than a rinse. We love it!
Compact strainer for Greek yogurt
I regularly make 2qts of yogurt with my Yogotherm. As others have said, if you want to strain all of it at once, this is not the product for you. It's perfect for me though because I generally only want to strain a portion of it for thicker yogurt (greek style) or yogurt cheese and it doesn't take up much room in the refrigerator. I do also follow the tips for a thicker yogurt by adding nonfat dry milk powder (recommend King Arthur Flour) and letting it sit at higher temperature in the pan for 20 minutes before cooling down to set.
