I love it but needed Grandma's wisdom to get it right!

Summary: I guess any yogurt maker is pretty much the same. for the best yogurt i: turn the maker on with jars in the holder (lids off). heat the milk until it's just getting hot. (dip finger in to test), whilst it's heating whisk like a looney. turn off heat. add 125ml of natural yogurt. (greek yogurt works best). whisk like a looney. pour into jars, make sure you get all the froth - it's the froth that helps it set. lids on jars. lid on maker, leave over night.
Summary: Wish I'd known about this years ago, it is one of the best "gadgets" I have ever bought. Start with a small full fat pot of live yoghurt, divide between the 7 jars, top up jars with full fat UHT milk (1 litre), no need to stir, place jars in incubator. Leave for about 10 hours (though I did once leave it for much longer and it was fine). Chill in the fridge, it will last at least a week, then use a pot of your home made yoghurt to start your next batch.
Summary: Last one lasted a little over three years being used every two days to make lovely yoghurt…this arrived promptly, well packed and is exactly the same (I hope the element which burnt out on the last one lasts a bit longer though!) Makes delicious yoghurt using Morrisons Greek style as a starter culture with Morrisons cheaper UHT skimmed milk. Top Tip, leave for about 12 hours mins - not the 6 or 8 hours suggested.
Summary: it is very good and easy to use. I had hoped to get a moulinex one replace my old one but nobody would send it by post to Portugal so got his one and it is smaller and not bulky at all and makes good yoghurt.
Summary: I've had one of this make some years ago, so I know how to use it in cold weather. A folded towel thrown over the top will start things off if left for about an hour or so. Then unfold the towel and just have a single layer covering the machine for say another hour. Then for about 4 hours allow the machine to continue without a cover until the yoghurt has completed making.
