BEFORE THE FIRST USE
Carefully unpack the unit and remove any packaging and promotional labels in or on the yogurt maker. Rinse all accessories thoroughly in warm soapy water, then dry completely.

INTRODUCTION

The Cuisinart Electronic Yogurt Maker takes the guesswork out of making yogurt at home. Simply mix together the ingredients and pour them into the yogurt container, letting the yogurt maker do the rest. You will love the ready-to-eat chilled results. Homemade yogurt is a healthy and more economical option to store-bought yogurt. Not only a great source of protein and calcium, yogurt also contains probiotics, or good bacteria, that are crucial for a healthy digestive system.

Either plain or flavored, yogurt is the perfect anytime food to enjoy alone, with granola, or in your morning smoothie. Yogurt is also a great ingredient to have on hand in the kitchen for delicious and moist baked goods, as a secret ingredient to marinades for meat and poultry, and also the perfect vehicle for soups and sauces.

TIPS AND HINTS

Cultures and Fermentation
The taste, texture, and consistency of your yogurt will depend on the type of culture that is used. Each type of culture contains different bacteria strains with individual properties that affect the tang and taste of the yogurt as well as its texture. Some yogurts are meant to be thin and runny whereas others are meant to be thick.

Yogurt can be fermented from a purchased culture or from yogurt that is either store-bought or homemade with a reusable culture. Use only one type of culture per batch of yogurt. Mixing cultures may force different bacteria that are not meant to coexist to compete with one another instead of properly fermenting. Fermenting times vary depending on the type of culture used. There are two types of yogurt cultures – direct-set and reusable. These two types of cultures also vary depending on yogurt flavor – Bulgarian, Piima, Greek, etc.

Direct set cultures can be used only once and take less time to ferment, about 8–12 hours. Reusable cultures take longer the first time used, up to 16 hours. When used again as a culturing agent, the fermentation time will be shorter, about 6–8 hours.

The Cuisinart® Electronic Yogurt Maker uses thermophilic culture. Thermophilic (heat-loving) culture needs an elevated temperature to ferment as opposed to mesophilic culture, which is best suited to ferment at room temperature. If you are unaware of what type of culture you have, check the ingredient list of the culture or ask your supplier. When fermenting with store-bought yogurt, the average fermentation time is 6 hours. The fermenting time can always be increased or decreased while the yogurt maker is in operation.

Heating and Consistency

Different cultures yield different results, with some producing thinner yogurts than others. If after making a batch of yogurt thicker results are desired, we recommend following the step for heating the milk below before adding the yogurt base to the yogurt maker. Heating the milk breaks down its proteins, allowing the yogurt to coagulate, and facilitating the thickening process during fermentation. Heat milk on the stove to 180°F (82°C) (some cultures recommend only 160°F (71°C), so follow the instructions per the particular culture).

For best results (but not essential), keep milk at this temperature for about 20 minutes. Cool milk until a thermometer reads 110°F (43°C). Once cooled to 110°F (43°C), stir in culture and any other thickening agent into the milk so that it is fully incorporated. Transfer the mixture to the yogurt maker and set the appropriate fermentation time. If following the recommended step, subtract one to two hours from the fermentation time.

Adding dry milk powders to a culture-based yogurt will add to the thickness of the final product. For every 4 cups (1 L) of milk add ¼ to ½ cup (60 to 125 ml) powdered milk when using cow’s milk, and ½ to 1 cup (125 to 250 ml) milk powder to the base when using goat’s milk.
Other thickeners can also be used to thicken the yogurt. Always make a slurry with the thickener and a small amount of milk before mixing it into the entire batch. Approximate amounts for 4 cups (1L) of milk:

  • Tapioca starch – 2 tablespoons (30 ml)

Agar-agar powder– ½ teaspoon (2 ml) [dissolve into ½ cup (125 ml) water, bring to a boil and then cool before adding to mixture]

  • Cornstarch – 2 tablespoons (30 ml)
  • Powdered gelatin – 1 teaspoon (5 ml)

Finished Yogurt and Taste

We recommend checking the consistency of yogurt during the fermentation process to avoid over-culturing. Begin checking yogurt on the earlier side of the recommended time range. Yogurt should have somebody and be slightly firm when fully fermented. Always stir yogurt before serving. Yogurt starts to over-culture when whey begins to separate. Yogurt is over-cultured when curds and whey have completely separated.

More time can always be added to under-cultured yogurt, even if it has been through the cooling cycle. However, once over-cultured, yogurt is no longer edible. Longer fermentation times will produce a tangier yogurt but also aid in thickening. Strain yogurt overnight using a strainer lined with a coffee filter, for an ultra-rich and thick treat. Do not consume any yogurt that smells, looks, or tastes displeasing. We recommend using whole milk for making yogurt, and avoiding ultra-pasteurized milk. Fuller-fat milk produces thicker yogurts.

When adding a flavor to yogurt, we recommend waiting until 6 hours after the cooling process has begun. Flavors can also be added to individual portions as needed instead of to the entire batch. Certain flavors may shorten the shelf life of yogurt. Fruit mix-in flavors last longer and are better added to the entire batch, while sweeter syrups are best added to individual portions.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE

Always make sure the appliance is unplugged before you start cleaning it.

Cleaning Accessories and Housing/Base:
Rinse the yogurt container, yogurt container lid, and housing lid immediately after each use so the food doesn’t dry on them. All can be washed with warm soapy water or on the top rack of the dishwasher. Wipe the housing/base clean with a damp sponge or cloth. Dry it immediately. Never submerge the base or the plug in water or other liquids. 

Storage
The Cuisinart Electronic Yogurt Maker stores neatly on the countertop in a minimum space. When it is not in use, store the unit assembled to prevent loss of parts. The Cuisinart Electronic Yogurt Maker is intended for HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY. Any service other than cleaning and normal user maintenance should be performed by an authorized Cuisinart Service Representative.

Introduction

As we stress yogurt making results vary, we encourage you to experiment with different cultures and fermenting times to create yogurt that suits your taste. We recommend heating and cooling the milk as a tip for thicker and more consistent yogurt. Note that if using a culture that includes milk powder in the list of ingredients, this step is not necessary or recommended.

Heat milk on the stove to 180°F (82°C) [some cultures recommend only heating to 160°F (71°C), so follow the instructions per the particular culture]. For best results (but not essential), keep milk at this temperature for about 20 minutes.
Cool milk until a thermometer reads 110°F (43°C). Once cooled to 110°F (43°C), stir culture and any other thickening agents into the milk well so that it is fully incorporated. Transfer the mixture to the yogurt maker and set the appropriate fermentation time.

If following this heat and cooling step (when adding the base to the unit at 110°F (43°C) subtract an hour or two from the fermentation time.

Note that if using a culture that includes milk powder in the list of ingredients, this step is not necessary or recommended. Please refer to the Tips and Hints section of this instruction booklet for more information.
