Does Yomee work with other yogurt cultures?
At this time, Yomee is designed to work with Yomee pods to make yogurt. The unique heating, cooling, chilling, and stirring action of Yomee requires uncultured milk and Yomee pods to create consistent yogurt results.
How does Yomee make yogurt?
Yomee has been designed to take the guesswork out of making homemade yogurt. Yomee is designed to create three popular styles of yogurt. Use the free Yomee app to select Plain (a smooth and creamy style), Stirred (a lighter, pourable style), or Greek (a thick, richly dense style), or just press the Yomee button on the base to start Plain yogurt right away. First, Yomee stirs and heats the milk to 185°F remove harmful bacteria. Then Yomee cools the milk down to a comfortable 115°F degrees, the ideal temperature for yogurt bacteria to get to work turning milk into yogurt. Only then Yomee drops a Yomee pod into the milk, stirs and dissolves the pod, and after 6 hours of incubation, Yomee turns down the heat to a chill 50°F . In about 20-30 minutes, the your yogurt is fully chilled and ready to enjoy!
How does a Yomee pod work?
The Yomee pod contains live active bacteria cultures that ferment fresh milk into yogurt. The sensors in your Yomee will drop the pods into the cup only after the milk has first been heated to 185F degrees and then cooled to 115F degrees. Once the pod is dropped into the milk, the stirring action of your Yomee will dissolve the pod into the milk
and begin the yogurt culturing process.
Can I use any brand of dairy milk or any brand of vegan milk?
For dairy yogurt, you can use any brand of dairy milk available to you and either skim, 2%, or whole. For best results we recommend using only pasteurized, homogenized milk.
For soy yogurt, almond and coconut milk yogurt, we recommend using plain (unflavored) brands with a minimal amount of stabilizers and additives. Currently we use shelf-stable vegan milks (tetrapak) varieties in our pod tests and
are doing further testing with refrigerated soy, almond and coconut milk brands.
When do I add my fruits, nuts, or granola toppings?
After the yogurt is made and you are ready to eat it.
Can Yomee make “blended” style flavored yogurt?
Yes! By using a flavored Yomee pod, you can create flavored yogurt right from the start. In addition to Plain (unflavored) pods, we are developing pre-flavored pods in popular flavors such as Strawberry, Blueberry, Vanilla, and a plain flavor with extra probiotics. Both dairy and vegan pods will be available in plain and these flavored varieties.

Can I use the Yomee pod without a Yomee?

How does Yomee differ from yogurt makers that exist in the market?
Yomee is programmed to heat, cool the milk and drop in the pod that contains the culture. With other yogurt makers you either need to heat the milk or cool it down and you need to manually stir in the culture and sometimes the yogurt doesn’t turn out well. No yogurt maker out there does all 3 steps with a press of a button and the recipe in our pods are developed and tested to give you perfect yogurt every time, so you don’t wake up to yogurt that don’t turn out well.
Will Yomee come with regional plugs (European, UK, US), depending on where it’s being delivered to?
Yomee will come with a power cable/adaptor suitable for use in the country that is being shipped to.
Will I be charged customs tax when the Yomee is shipped to me?
Yomee’s declared value is less than US$100 and in most countries it should be duty free, same goes for Yomee pods.
