Mom would like a 1 or 2 qt yogurt maker with GLASS insert??

Hi, my mom would like a 1 or 2 quart yogurt maker with a glass insert. All the models I've seen have multiple small jars (like 6 or 7 oz each) or have one large plastic bucket. Is there a good model out there that has a 2 quart glass jar? Thanks.

Re: Mom would like a 1 or 2 qt yogurt maker with GLASS insert??

I have an older model yoghurt maker that no longer has the individual small glass inserts. I just put a sterilized pyrex baking dish inside the yoghurt maker, ontop of the indentations where the small glass cups would have been, then put the lid on, then put a large clean teatowel overtop (since it doesn't seal airtight anymore...lid got melted in dishwasher. Yeah, it's old.)

I've been doing this for about 15 years and haven't had a problem yet, so I'm sure you could find a small corningware glass tray or bowl that would fit inside the incubator part of the yoghurt maker...whether it actually goes with it or not.

Thanks, I've noticed that some folks find ways to jerry-rig their own alternatives depending on the dimensions of the yogurt maker. I am looking for a Christmas present for my mom, but I appreciate the ideas too.

This one doesn't say if it is glass or not

Thanks, Mel. That one looks good, and I was looking at it this week. Unfortunately it is plastic. My mom may simply have to choose whether she is willing to do small glass jars or a large plastic one, but I was hoping someone here might have one that fits her real desire.

I would prefer glass too. I did see that sunbeam makes a 2qt glass mixer bowl that appears to be the same size as the plastic insert. Maybe that is an option later on if she goes with the one we both saw. The good thing is it is BPA free.

The insert seems to be sized very much like a large plastic tub of yogurt. So it seems doubtful but interesting. My mom's personality is such that she would not seek out alternative pieces once she has something anyhow, but that is interesting. She's actually much less green than I am. I just don't think anyone these days appreciates the idea of heating something in plastic when there is an alternative, so I am surprised by what is available.

You can get the small anchor hocking jar at Target and use that. This one works with tub style makers.. You do not put the glass lid on the jar when it's cooking, but you can use the glass lid afterwards for keeping it fresh.

I've had both cup and tub style yogurt makers and I really prefer the cups. I have two of these now and make yogurt every week. I stack them on top of each other.

Super--thanks!

The model you like is the one I had selected for my mom until she decided she'd prefer a tub. Thanks for the recs .
