Cuisipro Donvier Yogurt Cheese Maker
This is the greatest gadget - it turns plain yogurt into a thick, wonderful treat. I love greek yogurt but don't like paying the high price of imports - this gadget turns thin american yogurt into a thicker style yogurt or yogurt cheese, depending on how long you leave it. A little tip.. coffee filter added to the liner before the yogurt makes cleanup easier. Here's what the website says: Product Description Amazon.com Review Consisting of a plastic container and a stainless-steel, fine-mesh strainer, this simple unit converts 3 cups of yogurt into 1 cup of thick, creamy yogurt cheese in about 24 hours of refrigeration. (Thickening continues for 24 hours, though a thinner yogurt cheese results in as little as 2 hours.) The yogurt cheese then becomes a healthful, calcium-rich, low-fat alternative to cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, and even whipping cream. It can be used as a spread, in salad dressings, to top baked potatoes, mixed with fruit, and to make cheesecake. The unit works by allowing the whey (liquid) in yogurt to drain away, leaving the curds behind. The container is dishwasher-safe and seals to prevent odor transfer while it's in the refrigerator. Simple instructions and recipes for using yogurt cheese are included. --Fred Brack Product Description The Donvier Wave Yogurt Strainer turns 1 cup of yogurt into yogurt cheese, which you can put in a variety of delicious recipes that are low in fat, calories, sodium, cholesterol and lactose.
