If your family goes through an impressive amount of yogurt every week, making your own may be a way to cut back on expenses. The Salton Electric Yogurt Maker allows you to make yogurt at home quickly and easily. It may take some time for the yogurt maker to actually convert milk into yogurt, but set up with the Salton Electric Yogurt Maker is just a matter of a few minutes. It comes with seven glass jars, each of which holds six ounces and has a lid. These jars make single servings, rather than forcing you to portion out yogurt. It also makes it easy to flavor your share of the yogurt without flavoring the whole batch. Drop in some fruit or a little vanilla extract and you'll have any flavor you want.

The Salton Electric Yogurt Maker is easy to use. It comes with a see-through cover, so you know what's happening with your yogurt at all times. It also has a timer that will remind you when to check on your batch of yogurt and simplified controls to speed up the setup process. You need little more than milk and live yogurt cultures to make your own yogurt with the Salton Electric Yogurt Maker. It's priced at $34.95.
