Gloopy Yogurt floating in lots of water”
by Mrs Horsley
Very disappointed. Just bought it, made first batch with full fat organic milk and 2 tsps of live yogurt and the result was awful, not at all appetising. I was looking forward to creamy natural yogurt as advertised in the video. I also want it as natural as possible and do not want to use UHT or powder milk. I tried again with the same results. I feel the promotional video is very misleading as it does not show heating the milk beforehand, using processed UHT or powdered milk - so much so for making something natural. Misleading video, poor instructions - taking it back to the shop!

A note from the team: Thank you for placing your review. We're sorry to hear you've been disappointed with the results of the yoghurt maker. We can appreciate that you'd want to keep the yoghurt as natural as possible. Whilst the taste can appear tart it is a natural process that doesn't contain sweetners such as used in shop bought youghut.To thicken we recommend increasing the live yoghurt. We hope this helps.
best yoghurt ever”
I bought this as a Christmas present for my husband who loves natural yoghurt. Guess what I have ended up eating most of it! it works perfectly every time and produces thick creamy yoghurt. I use UHT whole milk and any live culture yoghurt as a starter and leave for 12 hours. Thought i could get away without a spare bowl but will be buying one ASAP as I don't like to run out!

perfect pasteurised milk for cool machine”
Other reviewers have hated 'faffing about' getting pasteurised milk just right. No faffing! I find 10 minutes in a 1000W microwave, then 10 minutes in a sink of cold water works just fine - use a jam thermometer such as the Lakelands one, Cat Ref: 8776, til it is about 50 degrees C. Pour it into the machine, with 2 tsp 'old' yoghurt and some milk powder - 8 hrs later heigh presto, yoghurt to die for. Well done Lakelands!

I adore this machine as it makes the creamiest yoghurt from UHT goats milk . I also like the fact that the container sits comfortably in my salad box in my tiny fridge keeping nicely until I need it.

wouldn't be without it”
We have had ours for about 3 years and its in constant use. We use the simplest of recipes - some commercial plain yoghurt as a starter, a couple of scoops of dried skimmed milk and a litre or UHT semi-skimmed milk. We have had to experiment with the commercial starter. Most bought yoghurts don't reproduce very well - they are either runny or tasteless. We have also found that you can use a bit of the previous batch as a starter maybe up to 3-4 times but then the yoghurt gets very acidic so we start again with a bought one.

Makes great Soya Yoghurt.”
by Mark Ross
If you are vegan or lactose intolerant the Electric Yoghurt Maker also makes brilliant soya yoghurt. I began with a supermarket'Basics' unsweetened soya milk and 2 to 3 tablespoons of health store soya yoghurt to start with and the results have been spectacular. After 8 to 12 hours you have a litre of thick Greek Style yoghurt with a mild and creamy flavour. I keep back several tablespoons of yoghurt as a starter for my next batch. Other well known brands of soya yoghurt may also work but I have not tried them yet.

Electric Yoghurt Maker”
An excellent product which I have used a lot. If I use soya milk will I need to boil it first?
Published 12 03 2012
A note from the team: Thank you for placing a review. This maker produces great yoghurt with soya milk but you will need to boil it before use and use a setting agent (we recommend caragennan or agar-agar); alternatively you can use live soya yoghurt as a starter.
Good Yoghurt Maker”
I can't recommend this highly enough. My yoghurt maker has been in use every other day since I bought it in January and it produces lovely yoghurt from UHT semi-skimmed milk every time. I did buy the 'spare' container which is handy to store in the fridge until the next batch is ready.

This little machine is in constant use and churning out lovely thick yoghurt every time. I use UHT whole milk but leave it on for ten hours, sometimes longer if I forget it. I can't see the point of the spoon and would prefer a snap on lid for the fridge but wouldn't now be without it.

Good Yoghurt Maker”
I bought this yoghurt maker 2 weeks ago and it's good & easy to use. My tips: Add 2 tbs of powdered milk as the yoghurt is thicker - and I use whole UHT; Warm UHT milk prior to using even though manual says room temperature: warm milk is better. Heat 1 pint of UHT to 45 degrees using an 800 watt microwave for 2 mins. Add the final half pint at room temperature; Don't over-mix the starter and milk - you get runny yoghurt; Buy a spare bowl: it's useful to have two. The user manual is a bit basic & annoyingly the pot is marked but not in multiples which match the recipe. Recommended

Electric Yoghurt maker - persevere it's worth it!”
I couldn't seem to get a good result from my yoghurt maker. I used semi skimmed UHT milk and skimmed milk powder and still the result was watery. I've now sussed it! The instruction leaflet says use UHT at room temperature but this is just not warm enough. I warm up the milk to luke warm and pre-heat the unit and BINGO! I have beautiful thick yoghurt. If you're having difficulties persevere it's worth it. I've now bought a yoghurt maker for my daughter. Lakeland - it is very irritating that the inner container doesn't fit in the fridge please address this one niggle. Thanks

Simple and easy yoghurt maker”
I've tried different milks & yoghurts, with & without powdered milk, & different amounts. For thick & mild yoghurt try: Pour 1L of skimmed milk into saucepan (skimmed milk). Add 3 tbsp of powdered milk to saucepan. Stir until dissolved (powdered skimmed milk 0.01% fat). Boil milk for about 2 mins & let it cool down. Add 4 tsp of yoghurt into bowl. Gently pour in milk & stir (organic natural pro-biotic yoghurt, 2% fat). Put inner lid on bowl. Place in the insulated base. Cover with outer lid. Turn on. Leave 8 hours.

Great little product”
I bought one of these yesterday havign read all the reviews on this site and alos having shopped around and read reviews on other products. So glad I went for this one and that I had read all the really helpful hints as my first batch of yoghurt that I made yesterday was amazing. I like creamy yoghurt so added a couple of spoons of milk powder and it produced a lovely creamy, mild tasting youghurt - no sour taste like the shop bought ones I have been using. Given the amount of yoghurts we eat as a family this will pay for itself within no time.

Fabulous Lakeland Yoghurt maker”
I used to make yoghurt 20 years ago, a very hit and miss affair. I saw the reviews of the Lakeland machine and ordered one. I have made several batches following the instructions and the advice from the reviews, ie warming bowl and ingredients etc. WOW thick creamy yoghurt everytime, and sooo easy. Friends and family are very impressed and one friend is even ordering a machine as they buy yoghurt every day. My smoothies are now wholly homemade. Thank you. My best buy for some time.

Wonderful yoghurt maker”
by Elaine Morton
My husband is lactose intolerant and missed his yoghurt. I purchased some lactose free starter on line and use Lactofree long life milk. Wonderful yoghurt that we can all enjoy. It's a good idea to buy a second container.

What a disappointment”
I eat a great deal of low fat natural yoghurt, and so though this would be a perfect item for me. Unfortunately I have had little success replicating the shop bought yoghurts I like, either the mix is too thin, or when using evaporated milk, it tastes indescribably disgusting. I eventually got the thickness about right, but it tastes like thick skimmed milk. No more! back it goes, and I'll just have to buy from the supermarket again in industrial quantities.

Excellent Yoghurt & Creme Fraiche Maker”
We use our yoghurt maker 24/7, for making lovely thick yoghurt and creme fraiche, so now I'm buying a spare machine. We use starter sachets purchased on-line. Other users please note: The consistency of the yoghurt is not the fault of the machine. Good yoghurt takes a long time to mature - ideally 24 hours.
