Product Q&A

Q. Would this work with non dairy yogurts? They are so much thinner than regular yogurt almost like Kefir consistency. I am allergic to the commonly used thickeners so can’t use those to thicken it.

A. The strainer works beautifully with kefir, it should work just as well with a thin yogurt.


Q. I plan on using the device to make kefir, but I am concerned about the material used for the screen. Is it metal? If it is plastic, how well does it stand up to cleaning?

A. The Greek Yogurt Maker is plastic and nylon. It is meant to be hand washed, as it not dishwasher safe. It rinses clean easily with hot water.
