I found this product easy to use and it worked just like the instructions said it would. I especially liked the automatic turn off feature, since I never remember to turn off anything. I used the yogurt culture to make plain yogurt. The yogurt was more tart than I anticipated, but I guess that means I just haven't been eating plain yogurt for a while. The instructions indicate you can make the yogurt using a previously made batch of plain yogurt, hence the additional jar in the X-tra jar set. I haven't tried that methodology yet, since I still have plenty of yogurt culture left, but I anticipate that will work as well. I rather like the culture method, though, since all you do is stir it into the heated milk and pour it into the jars. The plain yogurt method requires additional stirring and you end up with having to un-lump the yogurt before pouring it into the hot milk. Then you have more volume than the jars for the maker can hold, so you are storing the
I recommend this product.
