This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
Such a great little machine. We love to make things at home. The soy milk is great. make it youself is always better. The machine is lite and easy to clean. We make one everyday and if we have guests over we would make more. Bought one to try out and see, end up buying two more (one for my parents and one for my in-laws). Both of them are loving it. The machine will heats and blends the beans or nuts for you. So healthy and during the winter months, it is even better when you can enjoy many cups of freshly made soy milk.

Received the product in a timely manner. It has worked perfectly for 4 batches of soy milk this far. The biggest success is that we have successfully switched daughter from store bought soy milk to home made using an internet recipe. Very easy to use and clean up.

This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
The Soyajoy G3 lives up to its promises to make hot and raw milks from a variety of nuts and grains. I like the taste a lot better than store-shelf versions. It is quiet on all settings, and I really did get everything that I needed to keep it clean, in the box. My critique is a minor one that didn't affect my choice to purchase it (and I'm very glad that I went with this one). The comic-sans logo is in bright red letters, with some of the logo in green and a brown underside to the handle. Mine did not have the big logo shown in the photo, so it's not that bad. But I wish they made different font and color choices. Other than that it's a great little machine! :)

I've been making almond milk every other day since I got this product, and I hardly every drank it before. I prefer it over soy milk now. It's so fast and easy, without all the preservatives... and it's raw. I love it.

This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
I have been making soy milk the old fashioned way by boiling in a pot taught by my mom & was pleasantly surprised when I came across this product by accident. Of course I researched by reading all the reviews & even watched YouTube demos before I decided on this one. I liked the stainless steel color, the LED light one push button & the fact that it had a funnel blender technology. I don't know if it's just me but I found the blending process to be fairly noisy (I guess it should be expected) but what I regret about this machine is that I feel if the process either cooked for more than 16 min or else took could hold more beans @ one time, this machine could've been phenomenal! b/c my milk kinda tastes watery but I'm unable to add more beans than what they recommend since the metal bar that heats the water, prevents me from adding more than the recommended measurement in.

So what I end up doing is putting my 1 & 1/5 cup of soaked beans in, straining it after the machine is done than taking the first batch of milk that I just strained, putting it back in the pot & adding another 1 &1/5 of fresh soaked beans to make the milk richer. (and yes, my measurement is from the amount before the beans are soaked b/c after the soak they are much closer to about 3 cups) So it might just be me being used to my mom's creamier soy recipe in the pot, but if I don't it just tastes like water :(

All in all still a good machine just wished it could hold more beans :( but the leftover soy paste is so fine that after I strain it, I often add it to my hubby's plain Greek yogurt w/honey & fresh berries to give it more texture & of course fiber!

This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
So far so good with this soymilk maker. We like to make milk using different kinds of beans. As I wrote previously, the funnel is loosely attached and we are afraid that it will fall off during the process. The noise is a little bigger than my previous model. But with the two-year warranty, we think it is very worth to have one at home. For sure, we will recommend this product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Made in China? Why not?, June 22, 2012
By 
This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
A: The reason why American goods are made in China? Great object lesson in ECON 101

B: The quality of English used in the manuals is not up to par.. The manuals were probably not written by English speaking people, maybe Chinese? Poor parsing of sentences, poor usage of words, disconnected thoughts, etc. Ask an English teacher? Or doesn't the buyer deserve professionalism in its written manuals.

C: Supposedly these will always be known as SOY MILK MAKERS? Then why is the first button NOT for soy and other beans...instead of being , 'rice and grains'.

D: Most confusing were the amounts; regular cup, special measuring cup, After soaking, before soaking...should be made a little clearer

E: Finally, what if were family, or an employee of the manufacturer, unknown to AMAZON.COM or the manufacturer, OR from a Competing manufacturer, I could buy a Soy Milk Maker as a regular outside consumer, and offer up a FABULOUS 5 Star Review! Or a Bad 1 star Review! So I don't believe in he validity of reviews to start with!

5.0 out of 5 stars SoyaJoy G3 is very good, June 17, 2012
This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
It is timesaving, well made, and easy to clean. I was surprised I could make soy milk so easily. My recipe is to add 6 almonds to the soaked soy beans and some vanilla and pumpkin pie spice. I don't even bother to strain it, I make a batch and it fills 2 quart mason jars, which I pop in the refrigerator and it lasts me 4 days for morning cereal. I don't know if it is the soy milk, but I have been feeling really good since I started to drink it. :-) I feel like lifting weights again.

This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
I am a careful shopper. Any purchase of this magnitude I research well. I also consider the pros and cons of ownership; will it last, is it going to save me any money, will it pay for itself, what about customer service, warranties, how does it compare with others, do I already have items that will do the same thing, will it grow dust in the corner or be used regularly, and so on. It took me weeks before I decided to purchase it and it was a serious toss up for most of that time. I almost decided not to and after ordering almost canceled. I had only been on the vegan diet for a short time and was happy with my home made almond milk after all. Let me tell you, I am SOOOO GLAD I said yes. The milk out of this unit is top notch, making hot soy cocoa for my kiddos takes all of 20 min from soaked bean to in the cup. The recipe book that comes with is wonderful, simple and to the point, but the recipes are great. I use my Soyajoy G3 every day. Both my husband and one daughter, that were resistant to leaving dairy behind, looked at me, after drinking a glass of the Soy Groat milk and said, "Now I can do without dairy." I was shocked, pleased but shocked. lol The cost savings is great, soy beans are much cheaper than almonds but I was not going to boil, grind, cool, strain ... please really? I can still do almond milk with this machine as well but in 5 min and I don't have to squeeze those bags. All my kids can operate it as well and clean it so it is not a complex tool to use either. That is a huge plus!! Oh, and with making soy milk now so easy, I can make tofu as well. I am so glad I decided to get this machine.

This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
I owned the previous generation soy milk maker that was made by this company. I used it for a few years and it stopped working. Back then they didn't offer an automatic warrenty and I had forgotten to mail in my registration so I was out of luck when it broke, which sucked because I loved it. I made soy milk in it with ease, and almond milk too. I was accustomed to making almond milk raw in my blender with cheese cloth, so it was nice to do it in the soyajoy which filtered it automatically. The only drawback was that it cooked the almond milk. Fast forward four years later, I missed making my non dairy milks so I decided to buy another soyajoy! Boy has it changed, the filter is gone, and the G3 makes raw nut milks. I have to admit that I wasn't thrilled to learn that they had gotten rid of the filter and replaced it with a strainer. One of the things I liked most about the older version was that I could push a button and 5 minutes later I'd have almond milk without having to strain it. But surprisingly enough the strainer they include in this G3 model is quite good. I strain it twice and that gets all the little bits out. The first strain does a very good job because when I strain the 2nd time there is barely a quarter size of pulp. It literally takes 3 minutes to make nut milk in this machine and it tastes great. I run it twice to get a more nutty flavor and a thicker nut milk. If you're on the fence, jump this is a great product!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Upgrade Over Last Model, May 29, 2012
By 
This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
I owned the previous model around 2002-2004 but quit using it because the milk tasted funny, it was hard to clean and it kept burning on the heating element. Eight years later I am trying to move from vegetarian to vegan and hate throwing out all the cartons so I thought I'd give the new model a try. I was hesitant but it had enough changes that I was hopeful the problems have been solved. They have been.

The grinder now has four blades instead of two. The old filter used to be in the machine while it was processing and now is a simple hand filter. The circulation of the milk has improved with the new blade cover (instead of the filter). And it has 4 button options instead of one.

I use organic soybeans from the local food store (1 measuring cup) and organic brown rice (1/2 measuring cup), 2 tablespoons organic sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt. (Measuring cup = one they provide) It tastes great. Has never burned. Is quick to make and quick to clean up.

Three tips: 1. Let it cool in glass or metal - they provide a plastic pitcher, but I'm not a fan of putting hot food in plastic. 2. Clean everything up right away before it dries - it takes 5 minutes, literally. 3. Put a loose cover on it, but don't seal it. There is a sulfur-egg smell that collects if it's covered (but doesn't impact the taste). I usually blow on the top when I first take it ouf the fridge to avoid the smell.

I rarely review things on Amazon, but my happiness with the new model inspired me...

This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
I can't begin to say how thrilled I am with this soymilk machine. I did a lot of research and read a lot of reviews before I bought it. I'm happy to say that my efforts paid off in a big way. I am totally new to making soymilk and have always drank various brands: Silk, Westsoy, Edensoy, Pearl, etc. The problem has been that our food budget is just getting out of hand so I needed to find ways to cut back without sacrificing my health by going back to animal products. I already bake my own bread, make my own soaps & cosmetics, and got a masticating juicer for healthy juice. So naturally making my own soymilk & tofu was the next step. When I got the Soyajoy G3 I was a little afraid that it was going to be a hassle and not taste as good. I followed the instructions for my first batch exactly like it said. Unfortunately, it smelled like rotten eggs very badly. So I did an internet search on bad smelling soymilk and VIOLA! I found out that I was at fault not the soymilk machine. I simply heated up the milk in a pan to a light boil and the smell instantly disappeared leaving a lovely milk that tasted great with a touch of honey and pinch of salt. I also found out a few other great tricks that make perfect milk every time with the least work. Here is my method:

1. Pour boiling water over your beans when you soak them and soak them for a minimum of 12 hours. I prefer soaking about 18 hours.

2. Drain the beans and pop them in the microwave for 2 minutes on high before adding them to the machine.

3. Add boiling water to your machine up to the marks. Add your hot beans to that. Turn it on the bean cycle.

4. Strain your milk through a larger mesh screen then strain it through the small mesh screen they send with your kit. It goes faster that way.

5. For clean up... follow the instructions to clean the machine when you first get it... fill with water between the lines, put a drop or two of dish soap, turn the machine on a cycle. It will loosen up the bean residue and make cleaning the machine SO MUCH EASIER!

I love love love this machine and the soymilk it makes! I never had hot soymilk before. Now I can't wait till it gets done so I can sip a mug straight from the machine! YUMMY! It's also good with a bit of cinnamon or nutmeg and honey.

My G3 arrived today @ 5:20PM, made 4 batches already and I am totally jazzed!

What amazed me was how good the product obtained from the Laura soybean is, I look at the recipe suggestions of salt and sweetener, just seems like it would screw up an already delicious nutritious drink.

I will do a follow up on this review in a few weeks but I just had to tell about the pleasure this easy to use and clean appliance has already given me.

This is a well designed Soy milk maker. Someone put some thought into this design.

It is simple to use.
The company selling the Soyjoy are very nice and helpful. I had a couple of questions when I first received the machine and they were patient in answering my questions and helpful with suggestions.
I am happy with this product and would recommend this model and this company.

This is a great machine. I now make my own almond milk and soy milk and save tons of dough in the process. The almond milk is made raw so literally takes about 3 minutes (after about 12 hours to soak the almonds) to make. I make the soy milk for tofu. The soy milk comes out a little beany to drink for my taste as compared to store bought but if you have the patience to remove all the hulls (thin skin on the soaked beans) from them it comes out tasting worlds better. I haven't noticed it mattering if the hulls are removed or not when using the soy milk for tofu. I just don't usually have the time or patience.

This is a great machine. I read all the reviews before purchasing (and other machines as well) and decided to give it a try. It was not disappointing. It works as well as the video shows. I did make tomato soup in it and the white part became stained but it makes good tomato soup. I used the recommended water 0ne potato,couple tomatos, one small can tomato paste and a packet of good seasons italion dressing. Yum The soy milk was a lot better than boiling over the stove and blender method. Easy clean up. If you have given thought to making soy milk, I think you'd be very happy with this machine. I am.

This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
For health reasons I started using soy milk in cooking, cereal, and coffee and was happy with the change. I was not happy, however, with paying $6+/gallon (for unsweetened organic) and sending all those cartons to the landfill. Then I found this machine.

My first consideration before buying was the cost: according to one figure, 1 lb of soy beans ($1.99 at my local organic market) makes 1.8 gallons of milk - that's $1.10/gal for approximately a $5/gal savings. My next consideration was knowing exactly what additives were being put in the milk. All commercial soy milks have additives, which is why most reviews warn that fresh soy milk will not taste quite the same as commercial soy milk. What I didn't expect was how much BETTER I would like it - I like adding nothing but 1/4 tsp honey to a large mug of milk. (And when I'm sick I LOVE drinking it hot with a full tsp of honey, a little unsweetened cocoa, and a drop or two of vanilla. Comfort food that is also healthy; who knew?) Finally, I considered the environmental impact: instead of sending cartons to the landfill, I'm feeding "okara" (soy pulp) to my compost worms who turn it into very rich soil for my organic garden. (There are lots of internet recipes for okara, but since I raise compost worms, and they love it, I haven't felt the need to try the recipes yet.)

This machine is super easy to use and clean (and I'm naturally extremely messy, so if it's easy for me to keep clean anyone can do it). Each morning I simply fill it to the proper level with water, add the soaked soybeans, plug it in, and push a button. About fifteen minutes later I have hot and delicious soy milk. (Cold almond milk takes even less time and is also delicious, but I like this soy milk so much I haven't had to mix it with almond milk like I did the commercial variety.) While the soy milk is straining through the supplied colander, I rinse off the washable parts and pitcher while wiping them with the provided scrub pad. Then I wipe them dry with a dishtowel and I'm done - no problem and done in two minutes at the most. About once a week I then run it through the grain/bean cycle with just water to scald/sanitize it, but that's just me.

While I like the soy milk hot right out of the machine, I always keep some on hand in the refrigerator for cooking, etc. My husband has high cholesterol and needs to add soy to his diet, but insists he hates the taste of anything soy. What he doesn't know is that those smoothies he loves so much (and that I now send to work with him everyday) have about 1 cup of soy milk per smoothie. Now that it's always on hand, I've also found plenty of other ways to use it in foods that I make for him, and look forward to seeing what effect this has on his cholesterol. (My father recently knocked 30 points off his "bad" cholesterol, mainly by switching to soy milk.)

I haven't tried all the different settings yet, but even if I never use them the Soyajoy will be well worth the money. It's easy and extremely handy. I've used it every day since I got it so, though I haven't done the math yet, it will very quickly "pay for itself".

This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
Simple to use, effective at what it does. The Soyajoy G3 is built well, looks quite stylish, and scares our cats. They come and listen to it while it's warming up, then run for cover when the motor starts grinding the soybeans. Straining the soymilk through cloth provides for a smoother soymilk, and adding a little oatmeal thickens it up a bit. We get about a litre of soymilk and about a cup of soymeal, which we mix with, flax, and almond or coconut flour to make waffles with. Now the only thing left is to see how long the Soyajoy lasts!

One thing to add...My mother in law made soy milk for years to sell at the local market in Bangkok, Thailand. My wife says what the Soyajoy makes tastes exactly like her mom's soy milk. Can't have higher praise than that!

First time using soymilk maker. It arrived fast, and is super easy to use! It's a little loud when grinding beans, but the milk came out great! I'd suggest adding more beans then the receipt says to make thicker and more flavor milk.

This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
*Edited on 2/20 after getting a reply from Sanlinx, then again the next day :p*

From all the reviews I've read, I had high hopes for this soy milk maker. But, I failed on my first batch, because of the instructions confused me. In it, it tells you that it'll beep when you press the button to start, then again when it finishes. Well for some reason it beeped after boiling the water for the soy milk cycle, and I unplugged it thinking it was done when it wasn't. I contacted Sanlinx (very helpful people) and was explained that it goes through the boil, then intermittent grinding, then gets boiled some more, then it'll beep until you unplug it.

That "middle" beep is apparently there to warn that the grinding is going to start. I wish they had put that in the instructions, or written that it beeps until you unplug it when finished (I knew it did that on an older model, but I guess I didn't catch it skimming through the reviews for this one.) Speaking of grinding, I read on some reviews that is was quiet. To me, it was anything but quiet; then again, for a machine that grinds, it's probably not that bad.

The milk itself tasted good; much better than what I used to make without a decent machine that actually pulverizes the beans. The texture is very much like cow's milk, imo; very creamy even if you don't use oatmeal (now, with oatmeal, the texture was SUPER!) It does suck to have to strain the okara, but since it comes with its own strainer and pitcher, it makes the job much easier (although I don't know whether the plastic pitcher is bpa free...)

In the end, I do recommend it; it's a very good machine for the money (on sale for $109 atm.) Just the instructions along with the above mention things bug me, so 4 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the hot and cold processing settings!, February 10, 2012
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
I received my new Soyajoy G3 this week and love it! I especially love the "tornado" funnel that means that I no longer have to use and clean a filter basket. I also really love that the Soyajoy has so many settings that I can tailor the processing and temperature to what I am looking for in my end product. I have had a Soylove soymilk maker (only hot processing) with the filter basket and used it to make my own soymilk for years. It worked great, but cleaning up the filter basket was always a huge mess. I have now switched from making and drinking soymilk primarily to making and drinking almond milk - more calcium, lower calories than cow's milk, and tastes great! My old Soylove was one of the soymilk makers that did not require that you soak your soybeans or almonds before processing them - which was convenient. But now that I am soaking my almonds overnight before making my almond milk, I do agree that soaked beans/nuts makes better grain/bean/nut milk. And it is really not a hassle either. I am now going to start making my own soymilk to make my own tofu. I have not made a batch yet, but plan to make as many of my diet staples fresh myself as possible. Much healthier - and no mysterious preservatives, additives, and binders! Yesterday I made a carrot "porridge" in my Soyajoy. I used the vegetable soup recipe and substituted carrot for the potato. I used chicken stock for part of the water and added a touch of curry powder with the salt and pepper and added a diced 1/2" piece of fresh ginger. It was DELICIOUS! It made enough to keep in the refrigerator for a couple of days to have a cup of soup for a snack rather than crackers or candy. Much healthier. I will be making a lot of soups, soymilk for tofu, and almond milk in my new Soyjoy. I also used the left over almond okara to make some Indian Masala Chai flax crackers in my dehumidifier. They turned out great, too. I have just one complaint about my new Soyajoy. I wish the motor head - the part where the mixing blade comes out - was also made of stainless steel. When I made my carrot soup it stained the white plastic where the mixing blade comes out on the Soyajoy a light orange color and it would not wash off, even when I washed the mixing/heating portions immediately. It came perfectly clean, but just looked stained. Of course this will not be a problem for other batches of soup or milk, it was just not the pretty white color that it was three days ago when I opened up the package. Since I am going to be making lots of soup/porridges in my Soyjoy, I give up and just will not worry about staining, but it is a design feature that Sanlinx may want to think about. All and all my Soyjoy is going to pay for itself quickly with the money I will save on purchasing almond milk from the grocery store - not to mention the great health benefits I will receive. I would highly recommend this grain/bean/nut milk maker to anyone. Using the Soyajoy is quick, fun, and very healthy!

This non-dairy milk maker is amazing. Makes milks in no time and very easy clean up. Will save so much money over time. I purchased the G3 from the manufacturers website as they are running a special and it's cheaper there than here for now. Regardless of cost, if you are in the market for a soymilk maker then look no further!

5.0 out of 5 stars how did i live without this appliance, January 29, 2012

This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
i bought this after buying 2-3 litres of soymilk at the supermarket and randomly wondering how much it would cost to produce it myself. needless to say the markup for organic soymilk is bombastic and absurd.

I already soak beans for my regular meals so soaking soybeans seemed like a no brainer. The machine was offered on discount, and i decided to give it a try.

compared to the rest of the appliances in my kitchen, this thing seems like it has a mind of its own. grind a little here, grind a little there, and occasionally give a little wiggle on my countertop (it still stays quite firmly planted). after a half hour the device beeps contentedly, letting me know the milks ready.
my first batch of rice milk ended up with the consistency of heavy cream, and an amazing savory flavor and natural sweetness that rice milk at the supermarket just doesnt have. its also a brilliant icy white, as opposed to the stuff at the store that has a rather grey color. I had no problem consuming it all in a day and wondering where it went the day after.

my first batch of soy milk was refreshingly unadulterated. warm from the machine, it has an inviting texture and deliciously clean finish. cold out of the fridge its just as good, and with a little agave i think its actually better than silk. okara is left behind during its manufacture, which is a fluffy cream colored soybean paste that i cant find any immediate uses for, but doesnt disappoint when added to the things i cook. when i added it to marinara i was simmering, it adulterated the color a little but made the sauce much thicker and more adherent to pasta.

my first batch of almond milk was delicious. the consistency is that of soymilk and the byproduct can be salvaged, salted, and spread onto bagels as almond butter!

if you're on the fence about this, and you like soy milk, you should definitely try it out. this machine takes all the work out of it and delivers a consistently delicious beverage at a fraction of the cost of the stuff at the store.
cleanup is easy, the device includes a scrub brush and an abrasive sponge to do the job.

This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
this soymilk maker is awesome. I had an older one that would overflow, no matter how much water I used. very frustrating. also, the milk would burn on the heating coil of the old machine, that was a total mess to clean.

With this soymilk maker, I have no problems. easy to clean, no scalded milk. instructions are clear on how much soybeans to use, and no overflowing. I love that it come swith a small bucket and detachable handle and the quality of the milk is awesome. I wish there was a small pan that I could use to balance the heating coil on when I am pouring the fresh soymilk out of the container, but the higher end model (made by the same company) has this added feature, if you so desire.

This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
We have not made soy milk before and the stove top process looks like too much work and time for me. I am interested in the healthest food I can make without more time and money envestment than I have to use. I can actually make soy milk quicker than I can go to Wal Mart to buy it. This has really helped on all fronts. So far I have made soy milk and almond milk. Both were great tasting and easy as well as cheaper. I am happy with the time and the money savings. The cleanup is so easy AND making yogurt is easier cause the first step of heating the milk is done. Now I am on a quest for good recipe for soy yogurt. happy with the purchase, expect to get money back in savings in 6 or less months and this machine looks nice on the cabinet. Amazon also had a good price for this machine. The reviews helped sell me on trying it, I am glad I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh soy milk with minimal fuss, January 4, 2012

This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
I was initially hesitant to purchase a soy milk maker, unsure of whether I would like the taste of fresh soy milk and unsure of how much work each batch would take. The first batch of soy milk put my doubts to rest. Making soy milk in the Soyajoy G3 is as easy as letting dry soybeans soak in water overnight, adding the beans and water to the soy milk maker, pushing a button, and then straining the soy milk through the included sieve about 20 minutes later when the machine beeps. As long as you clean the maker before it dries the clean-up process is easy - just a quick rub with the included scouring pad, taking less than a minute.

The milk itself is rich a beany, and has some of the fresh cooked flavors you get with fresh bread. It does taste different than most store-bought soymilk - as one of my friends described it, it tastes like soybeans being soybeans rather than soybeans trying to imitate milk. Pure soy milk can be a little thin, but I found that the recommended solution (adding a handful of rolled oats or other grain when filling the soymilk maker) gave it the creamier texture that we're used to with milks.

We've also made tofu with it a couple of times, and again the difference between fresh tofu and the tofu you find in western grocery stores is dramatic. You can find tools and instruction in the SoyaJoy Total Tofu Kit. Tofu is a bit more work, however - probably an hour in the kitchen to make two to three batches of soymilk, heat them together, add the nigari to congeal, and then put the curds in a press. While we make soy milk most mornings, we usually only make tofu on a quiet weekend.

We've experimented a little with rice and other bean milks. While the results were not bad, we haven't found one that we're as fond of as soymilk.

Overall, we've been very happy with the SoyaJoy G3. If you're a regular drinker of unsweetened soy milk, I would recommend you give the G3 a try.

I am deciding whether to buy the Soy Joy G3 Milk Maker? I would appreciate if someone can tell me if there is a plastic window gauge that touches the Milk during cooking ? I am concerned about BPA. I do not want to buy the machine ,only have to return the machine if it does have a plastic window or parts that touch the milk? Much thanks

This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
I recently began stocking my kitchen with new things that will support a living foods lifestyle. I really did not want to deal with a nut mylk bag [except for making the seed and nut cheese]so I was pretty happy when I found out about the Soya joy. It is very easy to use and clean up. It is very quiet. The instructions are easy to follow. It makes a lot more than raw nut and seed mylk.
I believe in making my life in the kitchen as pain free as possible and I am very pleased with this investment in my health and tastebuds.

This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
Maybe the best way to communicate my enthusiasm for the Soyajoy G3 is that not only is it in use at my house several times a week, but I have given two fo them to others as gifts. Everyone has the same comments - how easy it is to use and clean, and how good the results are - soymilk, nut milks and oat milk being the main uses they and I make of it. In six months I have never even once had a batch not come out in perfect shape. I wish I could say that for my other adventures in the kitchen. Its computer control takes care of variations in factors like water temperature and the results are always exactly right. A great machine reliable and pays for itself in normal use in a few months. Nothing negative about it, and the vendor is reliable and friendly.

Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
I have purchased my Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker last month, and have used twice (was doing 2 batches of soymilk each time), and it works great, it takes about 25 minutes for the whole process, and you get a whole hot soymilk container ready to be served (about 6 cups for each batch). The process is simple, you have your soy beans rinsed & soaked overnight, then in the morning, you just drain the water out, pour the water into your soymil maker pot in between the 2 lines those specified in the pot, then pour the soy beans in, plug your electrical cord, press the "Bean" button, then just wait for 25 minutes, the machine will beep to let you know that it's done, then you use the filter to drain the soymil into the plastic container (both container & filter are provided with the Soy Milk G3 Maker, as well as the measuring cup for the soy beans). About the cleaning, it's a simple task, same as you're doing other dishes washing chores, as long as you follow the instruction which is not getting water into the top part of the motor, then you will be fine, it takes only a few minutes for the cleaning.

I like and enjoy using this Soy Milk Maker so far, by comparing the quality of built materials from other makers those I have seen from some of the stores in Los Angeles in the past, it seems to be a better built, but in term of the longlife quality of the whole functionality from the technical point, I have to wait to see if there's any problem occurs in the future (based on the product description from Amazon, this Soy Milk Maker comes with 2 years warranty). I gave it a four stars for the rating (1 star to reserve for the longlife quality); and I definitely will recommend others to purchase this Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker if you want to enjoy a original healthy soy milk from pure soy beans without other substances or preservatives. It's a thumbs up for this Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker.

Please toss out the first try making soy milk with this machine...it will have a metallic taste even though I washed it instructed in the booklet to run it with water and a drop of dish detergent. On my second try, the metallic taste is gone. Instead of pouring the soymilk into the plastic pitcher that came with the machine, I use a batter bowl with lid that I got from K-mart for $6.99. Once the milk is cool, cover it with the lid and into the fridge. Also, I use Bob's Red Mills organic soybeans. Please soak soy beans at least eight hours, it will taste way better than soaking at 6 hours.

This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
I received the G3 today, cleaned it and made two batches of soy milk. The hardest part was determining which button to press -- the manual refers to the "soy milk" option, but there isn't a button labeled as such. It does have a "bean" button, so duh! I figured it out.

What really surprised me was the ease of cleaning. The box contains a scrubby pad and a brush, and the manual mentions cleaning off any stuck milk, but really, it doesn't take much more than a rinse and a quick wipe with soapy kitchen sponge. It is definitely quicker to clean than my Omega juicer, which is easy as well.

I'm really happy with it - but it comes with a plastic pitcher to pour the soy milk into once the process is completed. The milk is steaming hot, and I don't like the idea of putting hot liquid into plastic with all the BPA-related reports lately. I'm not sure if this is an issue, but my second batch was poured into a stainless steel bowl for cooling. Also, I wish it came in black - it would look nicer in my kitchen.

This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
After considerable research on the web, I knew a Soyajoy product was the way to go. I went to their website, [...] and was delighted with all the information and recipes I found there. It came down to deciding between the G3 and the Power Plus, so I called them. The lady that answered was very polite, patient and answered my questions. I decided on the G3 for the addtional grinding without cooking option. I also appreciated the sleek design and color contrast of the unit, as opposed to the Power Plus plain white.

My first time ever making soymilk was easy and very sucessful with this product. I followed the directions and initially ran a cycle with water between the fill lines and a drop of dish soap. After rinsing, I filled it with water between the fill lines, and added the prescribed amount of presoaked soybeans. I also added three tablespoons of rolled oats, then let the machine do it's magic. In 20 minutes, I was straining my first batch of hot soymilk! I added a pinch of seasalt and 3 tablespoons of brown rice syrup, and YUMMY! As good as Plain Silk, for pennies a serving! I rinsed the machine and made a second batch. Easy, breezy, and afterwards, the clean up was a cinch with the included brush and scrub pad. Don't you just love it when something works as well as they promise?

Now I am thrilled! With two growing grandkids, we were going through 5 half gallons of Silk a week. Now I can keep us in soymilk for the fraction of the price.

All, in all, I can highly recommend this product and company 5 stars for customer service, product, shipping and website support. The recipes on the website are simple and easy to comprehend. I also purchased the tofu kits with my machine, and recieved free shipping when puchased with the soymilk maker. If you seriously want to make your own soymilk, this is the one to get!

This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
I bought this product on a whim for my mom for her birthday. We are both vegans, so we both go through a ton of soy and almond milk (which gets pretty expensive). I didn't really think the machine would work, but when my mom and I tried it out we were delightfully suprised. Not only was it quick and easy, but the G3 SoyaJoy G3 Soy Milk Maker was incredibly efficient. With only 3/4 a cup of soybeans the machine produced nearly four cups of milk! The SoyaJoy G3 Soy Milk Maker also produced a soybean mash as a by-product, which I used in a home-make veggie burger recipe to give the burgers more protein and stick together. We also made rice milk, flavored with vanilla extract and splenda (yum!), and used the mash as sort of a hot breakfast cereal. There are just so many things you can do with this machine! If I had known how great this product was, I would have kept it for myself :)

5.0 out of 5 stars I didn't think it could get any better! w/TIPS..., July 25, 2011
This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
After months of research, I originally bought the SoyaPower Plus, which I was very happy with. Then, MacGuffin, another reviewer, was very thoughtful and told me about this new model, the SoyaJoy G3. I looked into and decided it was a better option for me than the SoyaPower Plus. The MAIN reason being that this G3 has the ability to make RAW milks and juices. I really enjoyed my previous model (it really is great and if you don't care about RAW, then go for it), but I am SO happy I "upgraded"! The raw milks are done faster (no water heating/cooking time) and they can be drank right away (no "cooling off" time). The milks come out at a perfect temperature (not too hot, not too cold).

I also prefer the "aesthetic" of the G3 over the SoyaPower Plus (which looked nice, in its own right). However, for me, I have NO white in my kitchen, but I do have a lot of other stainless counter-top appliances in view (toaster oven, blender, ice cream maker, coffee maker). So, this blends right in. In addition, the dark ring around the top and line in the handle is a deep burgundy brown, which matches my cabinets. Also, the lights are the super-cool glowing blue color, with illuminated outline images of what is being used (beans, etc.). The previous model had a single red LED for each function button.

None of this has anything to do with making milk, but since MacGuffin covered the function so well :), I thought it'd be helpful to cover the aesthetic.

If you have small children or others who are not aware of the dangers of steaming hot things, the SoyaPower Plus might be a better option for you, as it has a thermoplastic layer on the outside (which insulates the hot stainless pitcher from the outside), and the top latches to the bottom. The G3 gets very hot on the outside (unless you're making raw milks) and there is nothing "attaching" it to the pitcher part. Only gravity holds it down. Works fine for us. And, as MacGuffin mentioned, be sure the "nub" is over the handle, so the "switch" to turn it on can be activated. (There's a little "pole" that slides into a hole to tell the machine it's properly seated). I was worried becuase my machine head rattled a little, but it's just the movable switch part. When it is mounted, there's no rattle. The rattle only happens when you "shake" the unit, anyway.

I thought the top handle on the SpoyaPower Plus was great, but I think the top handle on the SoyaJoy G3 is even better. It's integrated, has a cushioned rubbery bumpy pad on the inside and it really makes it easy to "handle" and maneuver the machine head. The top is rounded, so as MacGuffin said, no top storage. We use ours too often to store anything on top, so again, no bother to us.

I have also noticed that the pitcher handle on the G3 affords more finger room, between it and the pitcher. There is a plastic area to protect knuckles, but if you found the SoyaPower Plus to have a small handle gap, you will be happy to know the G3's gap is considerably larger.

All of the accessory parts that come with the SoyaPower Plus (pitcher, cleaning brush, scrubbie, filter, measuring cup, & power cord) are the same as what's included in this G3 (well, mine were, anyway). The G3 (like the Plus), comes with a little instruction manual that is very helpful. TIP: do not plug it in without water in the pitcher - it will just beep continuously. I tried to see the cool lights before making any milk and I heard a steady beep, which worried me, until I read the handy-dandy troubleshooting chart in the little book (glad to know I wasn't the only one!).

The one downside I can see to the G3 is that it does not come with the wonderful recipe book that the SoyaPower Plus came with. This is certainly not a deal-breaker, as it seems the recipes are available on their website (do a google search for Sanlinx and you will see their site at the top of a page with a direct link to their recipes). We've tried the Okara Chikn Strips - Yummy!

We have made both cooked soymilks and raw nutmilks in the G3. My favorite is a recipe using almonds, cashews, walnuts, and raw shelled hempseed. It's soooo good and the "mash" that you get is fantastic! I eat it plain, while my fiancee likes to add a bit of cinnamon, some raisins, etc.

It's so easy to do: soak & rinse beans or nuts as needed; pour water to desired line (the G3 actually tells you the measurement of the two lines, instead of a "more" and a "less" guestimation.); then add soaked & rinsed nuts/beans; sit machinehead on the top (on the G3, there are no clips holding it down - no matter to me); plug power cord into machine and then into the wall; be mesmerized by glowing blue LEDs; choose appropriate function & push that button; wait; strain twice (our preference); chill if needed; enjoy! Making and waiting times depend on what you're making the milks from and if it's raw (which takes less time). Clean-up is also very easy.

For soymilk, I like it ever-so slightly warm and completely plain. It's DELICIOUS! Another reviewer of the Sanlinx products said theirs had an "eggy" smell. Ours (using the Laura beans) does smell faintly like hard-boiled eggs (the second batch, more-so). It wasn't that bad and I actually think it is a nice smell. The experience reminds me of an egg-cream, or thin egg-nog. We don't eat eggs here in the house, but from my memory, I think it's similar. Either way, it's really yummy and smooth. I also tried it with a squirt of chocolate syrup and it was tasty! He likes it with a touch of Vanilla Extract (which I thought was gross). Good thing I bought two frigoverre's! *See other TIPS below*

We estimate the cost to be around $.50 per liter using the laura soybeans. We were paying $2 per liter for organic unsweetened soymilk at our local wegmans (love that place, too!). We bought about 5 liters per week. According to our math, at current usage levels, it will take about 5 months for the cost of the SoyaJoy G3 and 13 lbs of Laura soybeans (which should last about 3 months for our use) to "pay for themselves". After that, it's a savings of $7.50 per week (assuming soybeans stay their current cost), plus the soymilk is so much fresher and tastier and there's not so much worry about Aluminum-lined TetraPaks, Hexane-extracted soymilk, running out of soymilk (all the time) or all that trash (why aren't tetrapaks recyclable??)! Someday, we hope to power our house with solar and we'll have a sun-powered SoyaJoy G3! We're really looking forward to experimenting more with rice, quinoa, peanuts, oats, barley, & even the soup options! And, as a bonus, we get this okara stuff that seems to be super useful! There's even a recipe for Okara Brownies & an Okara Facial! We made vegan Okara Chick'n Cutlets with our 1st batch - YUMMY!

NOTE: After I did these calculations, I realized the Laura Soybeans are NOT organic; they are, however, NON-GMO. I hear that pesticide use on soy crops is actually pretty light, though. I have not yet looked into this, myself, but I wanted to mention it.

TIPS:
- clean the machine before you use it: a drop of dishsoap and water filled to the fill ine, turn the machine one and it will "clean" itself. haven't tried this post-milk, however.
- if you don't already filter your water, consider it. We use the Mavea Pitcher & filters (bought on amazon) - better water = better milk.
- think about buying two 1L hermetically sealed frigoverre glass jars (you can keep a new batch sealed while you finish a previous batch; or, you can have two different "milks" in the fridge at once) - plus, you can seal them and shake, if needed.
- we have also considered using 1Qt glass widemouth (personal preference) mason jars with the plastic lids (they are airtight, the metal are not, if not canning) - this can hold a back-up batch, too
- use a tea strainer (or a fine mesh) as a second straining (we catch a lot more okara this way).
- a dash of Vanilla Extract was a bit too bitter for me. Cutting it with a small squirt of raw agave was just the right "fix" (but made the milk sweeter than I prefer)
- I found the 13lb laura soybeans, with shipping, to be less expensive than other beans in the other places I looked (sadly, Laura are not organic, and there are no bulk soybeans at wegmans)
- if you buy soybeans in bulk, look for reusable produce bags (I bought mine here on amazon).
- we bought a glass marking pen here on amazon to mark the "flavor" and "born on date" on the frigoverre jars - very helpful (& available at Staples, for way less $)!
- the milk (in our experience) lasts 3-5 days, depending on the ingredients and how often you open the container, etc. I read that boil-sterilizing the pitchers & accessories helps milk to last longer, but I have not tried that.

And remember, take time to enjoy the new milks you'll create!

I rely on reviews here at Amazon to help me make informed buying choices. I hope this review has helped you in the same manner. If you voted this as helpful, I Thank You! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars A Most Worthy Successor, July 14, 2011
This review is from: Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker - Newest and The Only Model for Making Hot As Well As Raw Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Other Seeds and Grains
I'm very proud to be the first Amazon reviewer of the new Soyajoy G3 Soy Milk Maker. I've been a happy SoyaPower owner (not the Plus--mine is the previous generation) for a number of years but I couldn't resist the opportunity to test-drive the latest technology and as good as my SoyaPower is, this is even better.

The G3 utilizes a recent upgrade in grinding technology, the patented Tornado Funnel. This replaces the filter basket found in earlier Sanlinx releases (including mine), although it's also found in the SoyaPower Plus. Basically, a stainless steel cone fits over the blade shaft and creates a tight vortex so that virtually nothing escapes; as well as the filter basket worked, it wasn't uncommon to find an unprocessed bean or seed or two, besides which the basket is MUCH more difficult to clean than the new strainer. I have yet to see this occur with the G3--the resulting okara is completely and consistently ground. In addition, you can up the amount of dry matter to a full 6 ounces which means you can make even richer milk than the previous models, especially if, like me, you prefer to use the minimum amount of water. As good as my previous milk was, this manages to trump it.

The G3 also provides somewhat longer processing times (most of them cooking, I think) that benefit the quality of the milk; it seems to have a somewhat greater depth of flavor than that made with my SoyaPower. In addition, the grinding modes for the G3 are brand new and exclusive to it--they are "BEANS/NUTS," "GRAINS/SEEDS" (for when the proportion of beans is exceeded by that of grains/seeds), "SOUP/PASTE" (this is the one you want for rice milk), and "RAW/JUICE" (this is a cold cycle and is also for raw nut milks). Quite a few recipes are included, including some excellent ones by my buddy Vickilynn Haycraft of Real Food Living fame. The only cycle I haven't played with yet is the last one; I have a Vitamix and a juicer so it's a little extraneous for my purposes although at some point I'll give it a try and update this review. The other cycles produce beautiful cooked milks.

The G3 comes with a heat-proof plastic pitcher, a very fine strainer (does an excellent job, BTW), a few utensils for cleaning, a measuring cup, a sample of Laura soybeans, and instructions and recipes. I kinda prefer the measuring cup that came with my SoyaPower; it holds 4 oz. and the new one holds 3--each cup is off a standard cup measure by a tablespoon. Also, I prefer my SoyaPower's appearance, the fact that its exterior is heat-resistant--you have to be careful with the G3--and that it locks. I also like that the top is flat because I can put my tea tools on it when it's not in use (hey, counter space is at a premium here). But to tell you the truth, I don't think I'll be using my SoyaPower now because I prefer what I can do with the G3. Given how well the older models perform, I can't advise current owners whether or not they should update but it's something to at least consider if you can afford it.

If I'm not mistaken, the G3, like the other Sanlinx models, is available with different warranty options and prices reflect this so bear it in mind if one price seems considerably different than another. Although I've never had a problem with either of my machines, I've come to know Wendy at Sanlinx and I can assure you that this company is committed to the sale of quality appliances and supporting their customer base. I'm not a fan of Chinese-made products in general but my Sanlinx machines have been notable exceptions; they perform exactly as advertised and so far, my first is long-lived (quality control is obviously taken seriously). Bottom line: I didn't think my SoyaPower could be improved upon but it has been (twice--the SoyaPower Plus improves on it as well). Soy milk makers make life easy for those who want to make their own because they simultaneously cook and grind the beans/grain; even if using a Vitamix, the beans have to be cooked first. This is as easy as can be and is programmed to cook for the optimal period of time at the correct temperature.

A few caveats: if you expect to duplicate commercial milks, you're likely to be disappointed. However, the beauty of the G3 is that not only are the add-ins to your taste and at your discretion (you can get very creative if you're of a mind), you know exactly what they are. And don't think that what you make at home can't be at least, if not more, delicious than what you've been buying--it just won't be identical. Making your own is also more work than throwing a carton into your grocery basket, however, the machine pays for itself very quickly and if you have children, you can make it a family activity (and believe me, kids really respond to fresh, warm soy milk once it has been flavored and sweetened a bit--my best friend's fussy little one loves warm soy milk the way I make it).

If you've been considering making your own bean- or grain-based milks, this is what you want; I think you can even make congee for breakfast in it! HIGHEST recommendation. :)

Question/Comments: I purchased the SoyPower Plus Soymilk maker.  It is the best investment and Christmas gift I received last year.
I tried to make soymilk in a blender. It is not the same as using the SoyPower Plus soymilk maker.  The SoyPower Plus soymilk maker heats it to the right temperature and finished making milk in approximately 20 minutes.  I made tofu from the milk and it was so delicious that I can't wait to make more to put on pizza.  Wanting my mom to try it, I took some to her house.  She told me that it tasted just like regular cow's milk which made me very excited.  What a wonderful, healthy alternative to use and to drink.

Thank you so much.

The SoyaPower Plus works wonderfully for us. My wife and I borrowed two other soymilk makers (with filters) from our friends and did 3 blind taste tests. Each and every time the SoyaPower came out on top! I was first dubious about the hand strainer, but now I actually find that it makes the machine more versatile, since I actually enjoy drinking soymilk without filtering it. It also made it easier for my wife and I to experiment with the okara in our cooking.  So, THANKS!


I've already been spreading the words to my friends about my new favorite toy in the kitchen.

I have used the soymilk maker (SoyaPower Plus) and found it easy to use.  I am surprised to learn how much is added to my regular purchased soymilk to make it taste the way it does.  I am pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to make nice, clean tasting soymilk without any additives--the taste is very pleasant.

I am looking forward to more adventures with this product as well as discovering how to use okara.  Thanks!

I made 4 batches of soy milk and used the recipe that calls for brown rice syrup and sea salt. I am amazed how delicious it is! I tastes very much like milk! The machine works perfect! I looked at many machines online. I'm glad I purchased this one! I can't wait to try more recipes! I found recipes online for soy milk ice cream too. I'm going to have lots of fun making so many delicious and healthy things! I will soon try making tofu also.
I will tell others how great this machine is!

I have been using my SoyaJoy for several months now and it is great!  The genius of its simplicity means no thought required.  Before one pitcher is empty, I soak the soybeans to make the next batch; it's great to know that I am not getting added sugar and other ingredients in the soymilk. 

Thank you, especially, for the answered questions and the prompt shipment--for helping me with my decision and following up as well. 

I will have lots of family visiting at Christmas and I am looking forward to showing them the Soyajoy in action.

Thank you for the help!

Suppose I can add 1/4 cup of lima beans to a batch without harming the machine?  I ask this because the beans are larger.

Dear Sirs:
 
Thank you for selling a great product called SoyaPower. I am a missionary and now have 6 of your SoyaPower soymilk makers in operation at the Presbyterian Embangweni Mission Hospital at Embangweni, Malawi. The units are saving the lives of undernourished children, orphans and babies who no longer nursed by their mothers.

50% of the mothers giving birth at the hospital have HIV/AIDS. The virus is transmitted to the baby through the breast milk. The babies are now given an inoculation that will last about 6 months. If they continue to receive breast milk from their mother, the virus will infect the child and death will occur within 3 to 4 years or sooner.
 
Because of SoyaPower, protein enriched soy milk and akara used as weaning food can save the lives of babies whose mothers have the virus. Praise God!

I have used the soymilk maker a lot.  I make about 3 to 4 gallons of milk a week. I had to buy other soymilk makers at a cheaper price to keep up with the soymilk making.  The other models of soymilk makers are not as dependable.  I wish that SoyaJoy could make a larger machine like at 1/2 gal. size.  I have had the  SoyaJoy just over 1 year now and no problems.

Making our own milk has saved us tons of money at the grocery store.  Thank you for making a great product that has really helped our family save money as well as make much better soy milk!  (We can't go back to store bought milk if we wanted to... yuck!)

Dear Merchant,

We like it  (SoyaPower) and use it about once a week. We don't add anything to it, just 
use it straight. We use it mostly on hot cereal, granola, in smoothies and 
sometimes in pancakes and soups.  The okara is not used much although we 
are starting to put it in scrambled eggs when we eat them.  We're buying 
organic soybeans at the health food store at 99/lb which lasts about a 
month.  The machine works great, thank you, Sam
 

 

Thanks Sanlinx,

We love our SoyaPower machine and will probably buy another soon so we can
make larger quantities of Tofu and Soymilk at one time.

We are using our SoyaPower about twice per week. Our main application is using the soy milk for cappuccino. It froths up beautifully! Also, we have been freezing the okara, and I have been adding it in my bread recipes (one batch per two-loaf recipe). It gives the bread more body, and adds a wonderful flavor. I also make this traditional Japanese dish: (sorry we will post teh actual recipe on our recipe web page).

I purchased this unit because I am opposed to human consumption of dairy products and I prefer soymilk for health reasons.

I first tried a SoyToy unit after reading NotMilk.com, but didn't like its performance or soymilk quality, so I returned it. After doing extensive research on the Internet, I purchased the SoyaPower unit from you. It seemed like a much better design and was available for a much lower price. I used it for the first time this morning and, I must say, It has proved to be a vastly superior machine and makes excellent soymilk. I now see why presoaking the beans makes such a difference.

OK,
I read & read & read all the reviews of happy customers.
I then ordered my soy milk maker and some soy beans.
Being a vegan chef & baker I was thrilled with the idea of making my own soy milk.
OK, I love this machine!!! Cleaned it, put soaked soy beans in, made soy milk. Rinsed the machine out, made more soy milk & then made tofu.
How easy was that!!!
With the SoyaJoy you can have both in less then 2 hours(minus-the soaking time).
Big hugs and many many thank you's to all of you for making my life more fun in the kitchen.

Subject: A 5-star review!!!

Dear Wendy,

You may remember our correspondence in April 2004.  My brother who
lives in the US bought a SoyaJoy for me and brought it over to Scotland
when he visited us.  I didn't want to rush and write a review too soon.
I thought I would use it for a while.

Well, after having made countless pints of soya milk, I now pronounce
the SoyaJoy one of my best helpers in the kitchen.  What a difference! I
used to make soya milk via the long way (i.e., blending, straining with
cheesecloth, boiling) and spending precious time and washing up all the
dishes.  Whoever tried it, knows what I am talking about.  It is now all
made so simple by my SoyaJoy.

I have also experimented with coconut, oat and rice with brilliant
results.  I use the okara sometimes for patties, other times I add some
to my bread.  I use the machine at least twice a week and it still looks
as new.  The filter washes very easily although I haven't used any
special cleaning material, only ordinary washing up liquid and the
little brush that came with the machine.

It is just wonderful that everything is stainless steel, and when it
looks clean, it is indeed clean.

I would like to tell everybody that if you wish to buy a soya milk
maker, this is the one to go for.

Wendy, if you wish to use my e-mail on your website for testimonial,
please feel free, but please delete my address.

Kind regards and many thanks again for your help.

Hi,
I just got my soy milk maker a week ago.  I live overseas in Doha Qatar.  I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful machine, it is everything, and I mean everything that you said it was. I have been sharing it with my friends and two of them already are getting ready to place their order this week from one little sip. When we found out that we has Type A blood, we knew we had to stop fresh dairy products. Now that was not easy to do with a fourteen year old boy and an eleven year old girl.  I told them about my new machine, and to say the least, they were cautiously keeping a distance from it.  I used some soy beans from my cupboard I had been saving, but the quality from India was not good.  Like you said on your web-site the better quality and fresher the bean the better the milk,  Well that was the complete truth!!!  I bought some organic beans from Mega Mart grocery store and the soy smell and taste was gone.  I did like you said and added vanilla, salt and a little splenda (we do not do sugar) and it was great.My kids love it.  I knew that they needed to make the shift, they could not go through their lives without a milk substitute. I am now making it for all my friends until they get theirs in the mail. Not only were you prompt to respond the internet when I ordered, but you even offered me (without me asking) if I wanted 220 voltage!  Wow, talk about customer service!!! Not only it your machine easy, your website with excellent information is invaluable!  I feel so thankful that I was able to find your web-site and not some other phony soy milk maker.  We are temporarily living overseas and it cost about 5 dollars for 500grams of soymilk in a carton.  Again, thank you!!
 
Signed a happy customer

Hey folks,

My Soyajoy soy milk maker is awesome.
It makes fabulous soy milk...and it paid
for itself in less than three months.

Payback:
I drink about three gallons of soy milk a week.
Soy milk sells for $5.00 a gallon. I bought
my Soyajoy in mid-February. By mid-April I
had made 25 gallons of soy milk...times $5.

Payback.

Then, by the end of April, I had made 35 gallons
of soy milk...which paid off my purchase of 50 lbs
($50). I still have maybe twenty-five pounds of soy
beans left from the bag...so basically the next
35 gallons of soy milk will be free!

My recipe for soy milk...I just sweeten each gallon
with, say, a half teaspoon of Stevia...which keeps
me from getting a sugar addiction.

On top of all this I drink a chemical free beverage
from organic soybeans...not antibiotic laden cow milk
from cows that contribute to the greenhouse effect through
their flatulence. Eating low on the food chain has never
been better. Thanks SoyaJoy folks.

I've never used a different model so I can't say one
thing or another about which soy milk maker is best.
But I will say that the Soyajoy is very well engineered.
It has no nooks or crannies to get dirty. The motor doesn't
seem to labor--it's appropriately sized for the job. The
grinding blades do an excellent job of pulverizing the soy
beans to get expose the most surface of the bean to the
hot water. My only complaint, and it's a small one, it that
the controls--while very simple--are not entirely intuitive.
I don't know how to turn it off to empty it...so I just
unplug it...which I would probably do anyway, because I
work with it around the sink and running water. (editor - the machine
automatic turns itself off when soymilk is done! Unplug the 
power cord before clean the machine is the right thing to do
as per the user manual. The machine is so simple to use, many
customers never need to read the manual although we recommend they do) 

Thanks for a great product, SoyaJoy folks. You've done
a good thing for the planet! and me!

C Shaver, Pennsylvania.

I purchased one of your machines a couple months ago and I want to tell you it is one of the best investment I have made. I am a diabetic and I was unable to drink milk because the high amount of sugar. I have been buying a powdered soy milk at $2.35 a gallon the past couple years. It was all right but not as good as milk. I was ready to buy another years of supply when I came across your web site. I thought what did I have to lose but a few dollars to send it back if it didn't work. To my surprise it is the best milk I have ever drunk. My wife hated the powdered soy milk so it was hard to use it in any of the recipes called for milk because it had that bitter taste that of some soy milk. To my surprise again she liked the soy milk made by the SoyaJoy so now we cook with it.

I also want to thank your customer service department for being so nice. When I ordered the machine the next day, you came out with the Chinese New Years Sale and they gave me back the difference. That let me know that Sanlinx is a very upstanding company and I have told all my friends. These days it is hard to find a company that cares about their customers.

Thanks Again,

The Soyajoy is a wonderful thing that happened to us!
My husband and I are from India and are in the US for
a temporary period. We became vegan and started to buy
commercial soymilk. We were quite worried as to how we
will survive once we get back to India since
commercial soymilk isn't easily available there (and
the rare one's are exorbitantly priced!)
Just at the right moment we came across your Soyajoy
website and that changed everything for us.
We've been using the Soyajoy for 6 months now and are
delighted with the performance!
Now I have ordered an international 220V model and
will be taking it home. I just can't wait to show it
to my family there and convert them all into soymilk
consumers and in the long run into vegans.
Looking forward to ordering many more Soyajoy's from
you soon.

Thank you ever so much!

I have always made my soymilk from scratch, for the last 7 years. With a family of 8, that is a lot of work just for a gallon of milk. But it was worth it to me. My sister in law bought one of your machines and raved about how good it was. I was still skeptical--my concern was the taste. Would it be as good as mine?

Our family life has gotten to the point where I needed to make some changes so I could have more time for my family. So, I FINALLY bit the bullet and bought your machine.

I got it on Friday, October 31st. Saturday, I made a gallon of soymilk in 45 minutes. By mid afternoon, it was cold enough to drink. I put it to the test--would my family notice the difference?
 
I was shocked! They didn't notice any difference. EVERYONE of my family wanted to know WHEN did I get up that morning to spend 2 1/2 hours making a gallon of soymilk. They saw no evidence of my making milk. I was so very excited because the milk from the Soyajoy tastes EXACTLY like mine.
 
Thank you. I have 2 hours free everyday now because of your machine. I am sold. I have already told my friends who are making their own soymilk to get a machine as well. One intends to this week.
 
Thank you.
Thank you.

Hello Wendy--

The soymilk from the Soyajoy is superb, and unlike every other soymilk
I've ever tried, commercial or homemade, there is absolutly no trace of
a "beany" taste in it (I used organic soybeans from a local natural
grocery).  Nobody would guess that either the milk or the okara came
from beans!  I am very impressed with the Soyajoy.

Thanks for everything--you have a superior product, and I'll recommend
it every chance I get!

Testimonials aren't my thing, but you deserve one. The SoyaJoy machine arrived just a few days after I ordered it. It is clearly high-quality, and it works great, just as you indicated it would. (Your web site, which I where I found out about the machine, is very persuasive.) The machine takes a time-consuming, messy process and makes it incredibly easy. I know because years ago I made soy milk the old-fashioned way. How nice to have your expectations exceeded!

I just have to share my enthusiasm ... encouraged by the rave reviews posted here earlier, I was very excited when I placed my order on SoyaJoy's soymilk maker before Christmas, but also a bit nervous - including a $55 postage for Europe, it was quite a lot of money, and I started imagining how difficult and expensive it would become if something happened to be wrong with it. But all my worries have been put to shame - it's arrived in perfect condition (* I must definitely be the very first person in Denmark who owns one *), and the model I got is adjusted for European power source. Today I made my first batch of soy milk, very excited to see the result! It's incredible that in a mere 15 minutes, some 6 cups (1 liters) are ready and done out of 3 oz / 100 grams of soy beans. It has a more yellow-ish colour than commercial soymilk but this only makes it look "homier". When I think of the work and the mess it was when I used to make soymilk 10 years ago ... better yet I now think of all the money I'll be saving, not having to buy commercial soymilk which costs the equivalent of $2 here, or the same as a pound of organic soy beans!

Hi Wendy!

Our wonderful little soy milk maker arrived Christmas Eve just in time
for making an evening batch of soymilk.  Considering that it was a
Christmas present from "Grandma and Grandpa" that was very appropriate.

Wow, I have to say we were all impressed.  Considering that we used to
make our own soymilk for years, but have had to buy it for the last three
years (due to very active toddler), that is a HIGH compliment.  We do not
tend to like a whole lot of soy milk made by many different people.

The recipes included for okara were wonderful- a huge batch of "chicken
strips" went down in just minutes.  We all loved it.

We are so happy with this soymilk maker, having made a few gallons
already in just several days. 

The cleaner you sell is excellent, and also cleaned over three years of
buildup from our Juicelady Juicer parts- something that NOTHING else
would clean.  We are really impressed.

So, out come all of our old okara books and recipes and we are back in
the soy swing once again.  It feels REALLY good to not have to depend on
stores to supply our soymilk needs.  Living in a very rural location,
that had become a big problem.  The money saved will also be a huge help
to us as well.

We hope that this will last us for years to come.

Dear people at Sanlinx,  http://www.soymilkmaker.com/
 
    I have had my Soyajoy soy milk maker for about a year now.  I have to tell you that it is one of the best items I have purchased ever.  I am an eye doctor and concerned about nutrition.  Your machine makes it easy and inexpensive to make soy milk in minutes.  Plus the Laura Soy Beans you recommend from Fairvew Farms are great for soy milk and very reasonable in cost. http://www.fairviewfarms.com/
 
    I am one of the many Americans who follow a low carb high protein diet, like Atkins Recommends.  It is very easy to make soy milk and use Stevia as a sweetener.  You instantly have a great low carb drink that can be flavored with, vanilla, cinnamon, and many other flavors.
 
    I found an excellent source of Stevia that works very well with your machine.  I get it from http://www.herbaladvantage.com/ .  It has almost no after taste.  With Vanilla or cinnamon, I can make great soy milk in minutes. This is the best Stevia I have ever seen.  The price is very reasonable and the quality better than anything I have found anywhere.   They have bred their Stevia to have virtually no bitter aftertaste as some Stevia does.
 
    I was also skeptical about needing the cleaning mixture you recommend but that is every bit as excellent a product as your machine. It makes clean up very easy.

I don't have any questions about my milk maker.  I just wanted to tell you
again how much I like it.  The okara has turned out to be wonderful!!!!!  I
mix it with ground-up vegetables, whatever I have around, whole wheat flour,
and 2-3 eggs.  I fry patties, and I freeze a lot of them to reheat in just
the microwave.  I also will use the same mixture but add oatmeal and ketchup
the same a making a meatloaf and bake it in a meatloaf pan.  It is not
perfect, but it is a pretty good meatloaf imitation.  I have found a great
soy cookbook with many more uses for okara. So, in your filter cleaning 
directions, tell people to use the okara, not discard it.  I like it plain, but no 
one else in my family does. I also have no trouble cleaning the filter.

Dear Wendy,
 
I bought my soymilk machine two years ago and have used it extensively. I've written to thank you for continuing to market a quality machine and to share some of my thoughts with prospective customers.
 
I know people who read the testimonials are being careful and are thinking their purchase through. That is the responsible thing to do. When I read the testimonials prior to my purchase, I had this secret fear that I would be disappointed. But my experience with the machine has been rewarding and fulfilling. One reason why the machine is so attractive is  we know how much we save over time when we stop buying the store-bought soymilk and make our own. In my book, there's nothing like PURE soymilk. With the machine, we can make it just the way we like it--just the right sweetness, just the right consistency, and just the right taste. I use my machine primarily to make soymilk that I then use to make tofu. Once one learns the process, making tofu is easy, especially when you have the machine. We not only save money, but we have the health benefits of soy and that is priceless.
 
Although the machine basically runs itself, it still takes commitment to make the purchase. We still have to soak the beans and treat the machine right (clean and take care of it). I used to struggle with making soymilk at home with a blender and tending the pot at the stove but not anymore. Your machine has made it so effortless to produce soymilk.
 
Thank you,

Dear Wendy,

I've had my soyajoy for about six months now and really love it. So was
wondering if you could send me some details regarding how to become a

There are two options I could consider -- one is to do it through a wholefoods
shop in Melbourne run by friends of mine.. and the other would be to take
mailorders, using advertisements in magazines like Earth Garden.

I'm new to this.. so just exploring the possibilities at the moment. It is such
a good product that it would be good to make it more available to people here.

By the way, I gave your details to someone from Macro wholefoods in Sydney, as
they were interested in looking into distributing through their shops.

I ordered your Soyajoy soymilkmaker over the Internet.

Before I ordered I did much research.  I was really nervous about spending
$100 plus dollars on something that didn't work or was of poor quality. 
Homemade soymilk was something i had been dreaming of for a long time as i
really cant afford to buy the store soymilks.  i drink a quart a day which
would equal out to $750 a year.  so i was stuck drinking dairy.

Anyway i researched the Soymilk makers and found the idea that all  of
Soyajoy's  main parts were stainless steel to be the main seller.  Plastic
can break too easily.

So I ordered the Soyajoy and it is great.  Better than I expected.   From the
first glass.
I am so surprised when i actually get my money's worth in a product.  Even
buying the most expensive organic soybeans from the Health food Store. 
Soyajoy still only costs like a quarter per quart.  Something I had always
suspected to be true.

I am not experiencing any separation that a good stir doesn't take care of. 
And the recipes are right on target.  A little salt and a little sugar.

My new recipe calls for a Half Gallon of Soymilk in to which i drop one
Multivitamin while its still hot.  This way my Soyajoy Soymilk is fortified
like any other milk brand.  I bet none has thought of that yet.!!!

If you mix a creamy batch it even tastes good on cereal.

Okay thanks a lot.  Politically, i hated paying more for soymilks (Made from
beans) than i had to pay for Dairy (made from expensive animal slavery). 

I couldn't be happier.

Just wanted to let your company know that we love the little Soyajoy.  I used to make our fresh soymilk by hand, and the greatly increased ease, speed and quick clean-up that the machine offers is fantastic.  I will enthusiastically recommend this machine to anyone who also enjoys fresh soymilk.  Thank you for a great and practical product!

Subject: use okara in oak cereal
I bought the soy milk maker and I use it almost everyday. I used okara in pancake and oak cereal and nothing wasted. Just cook oak cereal as it should be. When the oak cereal is done, add okara in, stir it for about 1 min at medium temperature then you can enjoy it after it cool down a little bit. You can add any amount of okara as you like.

Hello,
I puschased a Soyajoy soymilk maker about a month ago.  I can hardly believe how easy it is to use and clean!  The quality of the soy milk and consistency of each batch is truly remarkable.  There is nothing quite like making a batch of delicious soymilk to go with my midnight snack after working the swing shift.  I would recommend this product to all who are health and value conscious. 
Thanks for a great product.

I made my first batch of soy products today, a soy shake and okara pancakes.  I am very impressed with the flavor and texture.  I have always purchased soy milk in the boxes and found that they tend to be watery and filled with other things for sweetening and preservation.  This is fresh, substantial and of very good flavor.  I was delighted with the pancakes as they are easy to make and are light and fluffy as well as filled with the nutrients a teenage boy needs to get him going on a snowy winter morning.  I have always been a consummate homemaker and made our own dairy products from our own organically raised cows, goats and chickens.  I am thrilled now to be able to make our own soy products with the aid of this extremely convenient machine.  I was afraid it would be complicated to clean from all that was said on you literature and one line but it is at least as easy as a blender or bread maker and FAR less complicated than a cream separator.  I guess all things are relative.

Thank you again

Karen Jensen

PS I teach nutrition and natural health classes across the country and would like some literature that I can include in  my literature packets for my seminars.  Just a single flyer like the one listing the benefits of soy milk that came with my machine - how can obtain these in larger quantities?

Thanks

If there is one kitchen machine in my home that gets used more than almost any other it is my
soymilk maker!  I drink about a gallon of soymilk in about 5 days.  I used to spend upwards
of $35 per month on storebought soymilk.  Since I bought your machine about a year ago I
have only had to buy about $5.00 of soymilk when I didn't make a fresh batch one night.

I bodybuild and I use soy products in very large quantities in my diet.  Especially soymilk
since I cannot stand the taste or feel of regular milk (I am a supertanker).  Thanks so much
for making a machine that really pays for itself in such a short period of time!

Hi again Wendy,
 
I got your last e-mail and have found a couple of lines in an article that might interest you.
 
Soy, found in soybeans, tofu, and soy milk, deserves special mention. Soy products seem to have major benefits for older people and those with type 2 diabetes. Some studies have found that eating 20 to 25 grams a day (about 5 to 6 ounces of firm tofu) helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels and may also lower the risk for kidney disease and certain    cancers.
 
I hope this info interests you.

I have had my new soymilk maker for a few days and I love it. I am like a child with a new toy. It is incomparably easier to make soymilk with my new machine than it is to make it the old-fashioned way on top of the stove with pots and strainers and so much time and work. The is no comparison. I will never go back to making soymilk on top of the stove. And as for store-bought soymilk, it is pound for pound exorbitantly expensive, outrageous when one compares the cost of home-made soymilk with store-bought. (And home-made does not have the unnecessary additives that are often in store-bought brands. Read the boxes, there is more in there than water and soybeans!)
 
I couldn't wait until it cooled to drink it. I added a teeny bit of blackstrap molasses and drank it warm. In the morning I made frothy, delicious smoothie drinks with my fresh soymilk and frozen blackberries.
 
I experimented with the okara (the left-over pulp). I will use it in breads, pancakes, in mashed potatoes, in soups, etc. There are many uses for the okara. Nothing goes to waste. Read up on okara, you'll never throw it away if you do. It has protein and some vitamins, and vital fiber.
 
As a vegan, food preparation and eating is a very important part of my life, and now my soymilk maker will simplify my food preparation and increase my joy of eating good healthy foods.

Dear Sirs,

I have had my Soyajoy soymilk maker for just over a month and am
absolutely delighted with it, as are all my neighbors. As it is 100%
stainless steel, it is the only way I can make creamy, double strength
soymilk without worrying about ingesting something harmful that
has leeched out of some plastic component.

Also, 2 lbs. of dried soybeans which makes over a months supply
of soymilk costs about the same as a 1 liter carton of commercial
soymilk. This also translates to one trip to the store vs. many and
greatly alleviates a storage problem.

P.S. I'm also enjoying your tofu kit, have made my 4th batch so far,
         really delicious

The machine is easy to use. I can hardly believe that I can make such delicious milk in 12 minutes with so little mess! This morning I used the okara in soy/oat waffles and they turned out great. For lunch we used the milk for banana smoothies. We are going to be so healthy using soymilk in everything. I can hardly wait to try making soups. The flavor is outstanding. My father is on a low sodium diet for his heart--now he can have milk without added salt.

I received the machine the day before yesterday and made the first batch of
soymilk today. I am VERY IMPRESSED!

I cleaned the machine very carefully so as to avoid the metallic taste you said might happen otherwise on the first batch. Then, I added the 70 g of soaked soybean and used hot water. After the machine went off, I could see plenty of foam, so as you directed I did the second boil. (with the beans we get here in Maine, it needs to boil extra to avoid the "beany" flavor. )

The result: the best tasting soymilk I ever made. (I used to make it by hand, but what a mess!) And it was really easy. At 71 cents a pound for the dry soybeans, we can now make a gallon of soymilk for about 25 cents! That's a lot better than the $4.00 we had been paying for the "bargain brand" at the supermarket.

You really have a great machine here.

in touch, because I'm working on some okara recipes.  My only problem is
that, it tastes so great right out of the filter, I never have any left over
to experiment with.  Sometimes while the soymilk is in process, I'm already
sauteing garlic and onions to mix in with the okara, then I add a little
fresh grated parmesan cheese and fresh chopped basil, a touch of sea salt and
fresh ground pepper to taste.  Yummy! (Sanlinx editor - She later on send us a okara recipe, I tell you, she is a professional chef!

Subject: making Quality Soymilk at home

We have had our SoyaJoy soymilk maker for about six months now. It is still as wonderful as when I reported back in May shortly after purchase. We now have come up with a few hints and tips to assist you in making a better tasting soymilk:

* Although you can soak your beans overnight and store them after draining in the refrigerator until needed, we have found that the best soymilk is made from beans that have been soaked for about six to nine hours, washed, drained and used immediately after soaking.

* We usually make a gallon at a time. We place the gallon in the refrigerator, but also place about a quart in a sealable container with a pour spout. When we are ready to use some soymilk we can shake the smaller  vigorously (over the sink) and this improves the texture and taste. The gallon can be stirred and then the quart container refilled from that. It is also handier for the kids to have a smaller container to handle. Without stabilizers and other additives it does tend to settle.

* The recipe we use is to make three batches for a full gallon. We only use the Laura beans from Fairview farms. They are a quality bean, make delicious soymilk, and the price is extremely reasonable even including shipping costs. We usually buy thirty pounds at a time for the two of us. At less than $1 a pound delivered it was about the same as the grocery store beans which are not specifically for soy milk. At 70 grams of beans per batch, even with our "double rich batches," that's only about $.83 of beans for a gallon if you purchase 30 pounds at a time! if you like the thinner, weaker milk, its only$.42 a gallon! Compare that to commercial soymilk! [all prices USD].

To one gallon of fresh, warm soymilk out of the machine we add:

* 3 Tbs. white sugar (we didn't like the taste of fruit sugar nor rice syrup)
* 3/8 tsp salt
* 3 tsp. vanilla extract (look at Costco etc.. for large bottles - 16oz. bottle for about $6.)

Even with those ingredients added, the cost is well under $.01 per ounce - less than you pay for commercial soy milk.

HINT 1: Try a fresh glass, warm right from the machine- it is wonderful in the cold winter months, particularly with a little cocoa mixed in! We are going to be using it to make cappuccinos and lattes as soon as our machine shows up! It does seem to froth up very nicely.

HINT 2: Do NOT place the okara in your trash compactor! It will squeeze out everywhere like a giant tube of toothpaste run over by a large truck. Don't ask me how I know.

HINT 3: Mix the soymilk with your favorite protein powder and a frozen banana. Mix with a high speed mixer (we use a Braun right in the glass) for a delicious low fat breakfast shake.

I have already told many friends about this machine and I'm hoping that the local health food store will purchase several also..

I have grown my own soy beans in the past and now I will again...

Thanks again...

Hi James, Thanks for the quick response and delivery. So far I bought six soymilk makers for my friends and relatives. I myself used one and it's really fantastic. I also have a question about the parts. Do you sell the parts separately like the screen -cup (to hold the soaked soybean), the blade, etc...?

please let me know the price.

Using your machine was a piece of cake. The milk was gorgeous, made from the Laura Bean, which we had already ordered from Fairview Farms before the soymilk maker arrived. As I am allergic to sea salt, I can't use the commercially prepared soymilk, so your machine is much more than a cost-cutter for me! Kudos to your fine product. I hope to see more okara recipes as time goes by. Can it be used to thicken soups?

Many thanks, Karen Price and Heinz Luda

I love my new machine. I have it almost a week and have made three batches of soy milk. It is so easy! From spending about $7.00+ a week to under $1.00 and it tastes great! I have also recommended it to two different people and I know at least one will be making a purchase soon-- we are already planning on buying soy beans in bulk and sharing.

Thanks so much for the terrific machine. It makes soymilk so easily and inexpensively. I've been buying weekly bottles of soy milk at almost $3.00 a bottle, so this will save me some money.

Hello from yet another satisfied customer. I began making soymilk by hand a year ago, and had to give it up-- with two small children and a tiny house, there was no way I could manually produce enough for our needs and still lead a normal life! Imagine my delight when I saw the SoyaJoy machine advertised and realized it was exactly what I needed, at half the price of less flexible machines. I hesitated before ordering online, but now I recommend your machine and your service to everyone I see. The machine is so easy to use and clean, the soymilk is delicious, and I have been able to make it a part of our daily diet without breaking either the bank or my back. I substitute soymilk for dairy milk in all my baked goods, and use it to make smoothies and popsicle for the children. I know my family is getting superior nutrition and I know I'm getting pure, healthy food for a great price.

Thanks again,

Mary

I made my first three batches of milk this morning. I can't tell you how happy I am to have milk again. I used to drink dairy milk like water, but went on Adkin's diet and there went the milk. Since I am 60, I worried about osteoporosis. Now, I have soy milk and it is wonderful. Even my daughter is now interested in it. I can't thank you enough for your service and this machine, especially with whole milk at $3.50 a gallon!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you. If anyone has any questions, forward to me.

I know that there are many letters saying much the same thing as I am about to relate, but I still feel I must contribute.

We received a specialty catalog in the mail that featured another Soymilk maker. It was very expensive (as I later discovered, twice what the SoyaJoy costs), but the fact that we could easily make soymilk at home interested us. As my wife is about to retire we thought that making our own soymilk would be a way to save some money. We were paying about $6 a gallon for a commercial soymilk. It was delicious but it was costing us a lot of money- even just for the two of us.

I searched the Internet and I found three or four machines. Without going into a lot of detail, the SoyaJoy seemed to be of the best quality and was the least expensive. I read the entire website including the testimonials from other users and I purchased the SoyaJoy machine. I also purchased twenty pounds of Laura beans directly from Fairview farms (http://www.fairviewfarms.com). These beans really do make excellent soymilk, and they only cost about $1 per pound delivered.

We have thus far made about ten or twelve batches of soymilk, and I can say that all your claims and everything that the folks say here about the Soyjoy machine is true. It is very easy to use, makes about 50 ounces of Soymilk in about fifteen minutes, is easy to clean up, and is quite economical. Fill with water, dump in the pre-soaked beans, hit the button, and walk away. Minutes later, "Beeep, Beep.." and the soymilk is done. The all stainless steel construction makes clean-up nearly effortless.

I have estimated that with a little sugar and a touch of vanilla, it costs about $.01 announce to make. The commercial soymilk costs about $.05 an ounce. That is saving us nearly $5 a gallon over the commercial product. As we use about one and one half gallon seach week, it does not take a math major to see that the payback period for the SoyaJoy machine is quite reasonable for us.

Currently we use two tablespoons of sugar, 1/8 tsp. salt, and 1 tsp. of  vanilla extract per 50 oz. batch and find it quite delicious.

Hi Wendy,

We've now used our Soymilk Maker well over a hundred times and it is working fine. We would like to buy another machine from you and have you ship it to my wife's sister in the State of Oregon. On 2/29/00 you told me that you are now selling the SoyaJoy Soymilk Maker which is an improvement over the Jiuyang Model which we bought last year. So I am glad to hear that you will ship the improved model to my wife's sister. I assume the new model has both the automatic and manual settings. Although as I told you some time ago, we have never had to use the manual settings. But is it is a nice feature to have in case someone would want to use it.

This is an email we received March 1. We have many customers coming back to buy machines as gifts for their family, friends, and relatives.

Dear Wendy,

We've had our Soymilk Maker seven months, and have used it approximately ninety (90) times. It has worked perfectly every time. What an improvement over a previous brand which never worked the same way twice, and cost almost $250. We have never needed to use the manual mode since it always does a super job on the automatic setting. It takes about 35 minutes from the time we push the start button until the machine is washed and put away. We previously made soymilk by using the blender and cooking it on the stove. I always had about eight pots and pans to wash and that was quite a task, to say the least. We're100% satisfied, and we appreciate your honest representation of the product. It is also a pleasure do business with you folks.

Regards,

Paul
Reynoldsburg, Ohio

Note: Paul sent us an email praising our machine when he purchased it about seven months ago. He is so happy with the machine that he voluntarily sent us another email after seven months of use. Most of us do not take the time to write messages like this after we have bought something that works well. So our special thanks to Paul and everyone else who went out of their way to send us a message.

Thanks so much for sending my order so quickly! I ordered two machines (one for me, one for a friend) on Thursday and received it on Monday. I made my first batch of soymilk this morning and it turned out great! It's so easy to use and the clean-up is quick. I used the complimentary soybeans you sent and will try our own beans next and compare the flavor. This machine is well worth the investment, especially since we farm and have all the soy beans we could possibly need. Tofu will be the next step. I have two questions. Is there a way to make the milk a bit thicker? Also, when looking at your website earlier, I could swear I saw a recipe for using the okara in a bread recipe. Now I can't seem to find it.

Thanks again!

Thank you so much for helping me to discover the problem with my Jiuyang Soy Milk Maker! Remember, it kept boiling over onto my counter? I had to order more Laura Soy Beans in order to try it again. Well, now I have 10 pounds of the soy beans!!! You told me to fill the cup. The directions must be changed in the booklet that comes with the unit. It states under Making Soymilk from Soaked Soybean. "1. Measure 70 grams of clean dry soybean with the included measuring cup. (A full cup is 100 grams)." This is very misleading to someone like me who follows the directions! Apparently the size of the cup got changed but the directions didn't get changed.

I added a few drops of vanilla and the milk is very delicious!!!! We liked it without the vanilla too!! Also, I chose not to add any sweetener because it is so delicious without any! Sometimes I do like to add a little molasses however. Thanks again for your help in solving the mystery! We just love our SoyaJoy Soy Milk Maker!! It is so quick, delicious, and inexpensive!!!! Thanks again. Remember to add the label that states your new address and phone number for the warranty since that is old information as well. Take care. Jackie.

Note: We have since updated the user's manual to reflect the change in the measuring cup.

Note: before Paul bought our machine, he had purchased another soy milk maker - a well-known brand that costs about twice as much. He was very disappointed with its poor performance. In fact, he was so dissatisfied with the machine that he went back to his previous way of making soy milk with a blender, stove, cheese cloth, and eight pots and pans until he bought the SoyaJoy. We are so thrilled to hear that he is 100% satisfied with our Soy Milk Maker! --- Sanlinx Inc.

We received our new SoyaJoy Soy milk machine late last week and are extremely pleased with the first batch. We were amazed at how quickly the machine processed the presoaked soybeans; it took only 10 minutes using preheated water. Additionally, the machine is a snap to clean. We were able to take care of that in just a few minutes. We used to pay $1.50 a quart for the prepared soy milk, but now we can process a quart for about eight cents! Great savings! Finally, the construction of the machine is first class. We like the stainless steel container as well as the other components.

We have bragged about the machine to ours relative and friends and we hope others take our lead a buy one from you.

I was very surprised on Monday, when the mail truck pulled up outside and delivered the machine to me. Great! I've already made two batches of soymilk -- one with your Laura Bean soybeans, and one batch with some organic beans I bought at Whole Food Market. I was surprised how much difference there was in taste of the finished product. You're gonna have to send me information about those beans!

Last night, my son and I took the two batches, mixed them together, and made our first batch of tofu. It turned out great -- though I'm only judging from "looks" so far. We'll be eating it with dinner tonight. There are a couple differences between this soymilk and the soymilk I have been buying. One is that it's not as thick, which is great, I thought the SoyDream was a bit too thick. But it also isn't sweet, because it doesn't have sweetener added. I'm going to have to play with this, if I want my boys to drink it.

Thanks for the quick delivery!

The day I found your site, I started talking about it online with 1000 of my closest friends -- on an email list about learning to eat healthily. I gave a follow up report yesterday, and people are asking about where I got the machine, so today I posted again with your website address. You may notice more 'hits' in the next few days, and I hope more business as well. When I am happy, I like to share with everyone! Keep up the good work. By the way, you are the only one who has EVER sold me a product and then contacted me later to make sure it arrived and is working correctly. As a consumer, I appreciate that more than you can know.
