The Rommelsbacher Jona Yoghurt Maker must first be thoroughly cleaned according to the instructions for use. To do this, wash the glasses in hot rinsing water or in the dishwasher and then dry them thoroughly. The yoghurt maker himself should be wiped inside with a damp cloth and some detergent. It is important to thoroughly clean all components of the appliance before putting it into operation, as milk products are very sensitive.
Fresh milk or UHT milk is needed to prepare the yoghurt. You also need a cup of yoghurt, which ideally has the same fat content as the milk used. Alternatively, you can use yoghurt cultures, but our test was carried out with 3.5% UHT milk and 3.8% natural yoghurt. According to the manufacturer, for the Rommelsbacher Yoghurtzubereiter natural yoghurt, a total of 400 ml milk and 70 g natural yoghurt should be used for all four portion glasses. When testing, we followed exactly these specifications. Additives such as sugar, fruit or flavours should be avoided and added to the finished yoghurt first.
According to the instructions for use, there is no need to heat the UHT milk before use. However, it should not come directly from the refrigerator, but should be at room temperature just like yoghurt. Each glass is filled with yoghurt and then infused with milk. The ingredients should be mixed well with a spoon or whisk. The filled jars are then closed with their lids and placed in the yoghurt maker.
Afterwards, the yoghurt maker himself is closed with a lid and the Rommelsbacher Jona Yoghurt Maker is connected with the power supply.
To start the device, the start button on the touch screen must be pressed.
Then select program 1 (yoghurt) on the program key. A preset preparation time of 8 hours appears on the display. This can be adjusted at will, but to a maximum of 19 hours ripening time. To start yoghurt preparation, the on/off switch must be pressed again.
According to the instructions for use, the yoghurt should now mature for approx. 8 hours. We left it in the machine for 9 hours to achieve a mild result. The time on the display now counts backwards every hour, so that you can always see how long the machine is still in use. After the entered maturing time has elapsed, the appliance switches itself off automatically and a signal tone sounds. The yoghurt is then placed in the refrigerator to cool. After a few hours in the refrigerator, the consistency of the yoghurt in the container was pleasant, not too solid but not too liquid. Before eating, we refined the yoghurt with fruit and other ingredients.
The photo taken with the thermal imaging camera showed that the yoghurt containers have a temperature of approx. 42°C after 8 hours in the yoghurt maker. The device has constantly warmed the yoghurts.
The consistency of the Rommelsbacher yoghurt maker is very good. The yoghurt has become very creamy and the firmness is very even. The yoghurt is also very tasty. All in all, the yoghurt is very good compared to the competition and the ripening time of 8 hours has proven to be optimal.
Besides yoghurt, you can also use the Rommelsbacher Jona Yoghurt Maker also for vegan or lactose-free yogurt from soy milk. Also, other kinds of yoghurt like "Greek style" with/without cream can be produced with this machine without any problems. Recipes for it are contained in the manual. In addition, other dairy products, such as cream cheese, can also be made with the yoghurt maker. This yoghurt maker also offers functions for preparing chilli oil or thyme syrup as well as sourdough. All in one a very versatile device, which is very easy to use.
The cleaning is very simple. The glasses can be easily washed in the dishwasher together with the lids. The inside of the appliance was hardly dirty and therefore only had to be wiped with a dry or damp cloth and if necessary dried afterwards.
