I bought this a few months ago but haven’t had the opportunity to write a review. Cue Corona- lots of time! Anyway, I love this gadget. It holds enough whey for me to strain a full gallon + of milk. You do need to be patient and let it do it’s thing. That cover is helpful in this regard. I see a few negative reviews- a few regarding the delicate mesh. I’ve scrubbed it thoroughly each time and been nervous about the same issue, fortunately so far no rips. It may be tougher than it appears. I’ve also noted concerns regarding runny yogurt- I suggest a tsp or two of unflavored Knox gelatin- it takes nothing away and adds some heft. Or a pint of really good fresh cream- which may add a calorie or two but is totally worth it. It’s also worth trying a different culture or length of culture. I’m not totally in love with the clear plastic tub as it is all scratched after, admittedly, a lot of use in a short time. Anytime I see scratches I know unwanted bacteria may be taking hold in those spots. I don’t have a dishwasher, so I use a more aggressive sterilization fluid/ also sold at this site. Overall it is a huge win for me. I had been draining my yogurt using a steel colander lined with cheesecloth. It was a messy event that caused much cursing and flailing about to the point of my dogs and hubby fleeing. “She’s making yogurt, lets go!” I love not having to deal with washing and deodorizing the cheesecloth, nor coping with the endless dripping mess that was a result of my prior method. I’d like to be able to buy the strainer piece separately, as I do expect it will be the piece that dies first. Overall it’s one of my favorite new kitchen toys and I highly recommend it.
I love this such an awesome idea! I am planning on making some yogurt cheese soon with this. Thank you all for your items.
Love this product and I am going to be ordering another one or two soon.
Previously I'd been using a Chemex coffee filter in a plastic sieve to strain yogurt, which worked fine. I like that this strainer is re-usable, but it doesn't produce the same thickness of yogurt as the previous method. Also, the plastic gauze mesh is so delicate that I really worry about tearing it during washing. The main plus is that it holds a lot of whey, so you don't need to keep checking and emptying very often. Another good point is that the lip on the rim of the whey container helps keep the whey pour out more cleanly without dripping down the side.
