I have wanted one of these for years but have never broke down and bought one. Do you own one? Like it/hate it? What brand do you have?

Thanks. I have a friend who makes goat milk yogurt with hers and I actually liked it when I tasted it. I had never had goats milk or anything made with goats milk up to that point. I just want to use regular milk as I don't happen to have a goat handy to milk lol.

I bought a used one once. I was not impressed. If you have a thermal jug or mug you can get the same experience, or anything else that will maintain a steady heat, such as a pilot light in an oven. This makes me think I could go make some yogurt for here at home. Preservative free.

HHHHMMMM don't have a thermos and have an electric oven (there is no gas service where we live so we have no choice but all electric).

Yes, I have had several different brands over the years and used to use them constantly before it became possible to get such good quality yogurt affordably from the grocery stores. Now we pretty much buy the Cream Top kind from Trader Joe's. Usually we get the plain and add our own flavorings. Most people will say a machine is quite unnecessary for doing home made yogurt, but I like the convenience of a machine and the one I liked best (which isn't made any more) was similar to this other brand on sale at Amazon now: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000JLNBWO/ref=nosim/?tag=prontocom14261-20&creative=380333&creativeASIN=B000JLNBWO&linkCode=asn The little milk-glass cups are handy for all sorts of other things, too, and have snap on lids for storing the finished yogurt in the fridge. I thought it was well worth the $20 I paid for it many years ago, and it is gratifying to see that similar machines are still available at that affordable price. I think the Euro Cuisine from Sears and the Cuisipro Donvier are very nice too: http://www.appliancehut.com/productdetails.asp?id=822 http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_00821481000P?vName=Appliances&cName=SmallKitchenAppliances&sName=Specialty&psid=SHOPPING01&sid=IDx20070921x00003d
