5.0 out of 5 stars English humour and the Soypower Plus!, July 21, 2012
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
Like most people, I have a wild assortment of gadgets hidden in my kitchen cupboards. I thought my latest gadget would be the same, but how wrong could I be? This gadget has pride of place on my counter top. What, I hear you ask can this amazing gadget be? This, I have to try!
I was brought up in the days when English schoolchildren got a free 1/3 pint of milk every day at school; not too bad in the winter when it was cold, even if the cream did rise to the top, but in the summer- ugh! Hence my delight at finding soymilk. I bought it in bulk at Costco but didn't really drink it, using it more for cooking and as an additive to cereal.
I was brought up to be frugal so hearing of the Soyapower Plus soymilk maker, and the thought of the savings involved, I was eager to start. Ordering online was so easy; the price was right and the delivery prompt. I couldn't wait to start on my new adventure. It comes with everything, a jug, a sieve, a cleaning brush, a green cleaning scrubber and a soybean measurer. All you need are the beans, a pretty jug for the milk and some flavouring. Luckily for me, it also came with a supply of beans so that if you forgot to go to the store too, you can still start. Oh, nearly forgot, you also get a couple of useful books with fun recipes. I learned that you can even use the okara for other recipes. No, I had never heard of that either, but it is the leftover once the milk is sieved.
As you can see, the benefits of this purchase are not just the milk you can make!
I wasn't too sure about my first attempt, thin and beany but once flavoured, it was drinkable. The second attempt, I added 2 tablespoons of oats, which made it really creamy. Version three was half chick peas and half soy beans; version four was soybeans and 1 tablespoon of oats, much better. Was adding sea salt and honey but then I found Malt barley - another childhood favourite.
Well so much for economy, my version six is so good that I have to remake it every two to three days. Amazingly enough, you only use about 4 ounces of beans. The soypower plus is so easy to use, even the technologically unsavvy can be successful. You soak the beans overnight, add water to the machine, add the drained beans and press a button. Fifteen minutes later, VOILA!! You have the finished product. Let it cool, add flavouring if you chose to, then drink.
As if the above isn't enough, you may like another time saving tip. If like me, you don't like to dust, this is definitely the machine for you. You will use it so often, that it never has time to gather dust, giving you more time for you. You can also make rice milk, almond milk or experiment. Great for the creative soul ...
Who could ask for more?? Cheers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic piece of equipment, July 18, 2012
By 
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I have had my SoyPower Plus for a few months now, bought as a gift to me by my wife. It is an absolutely amazing machine, and makes consistent quality, delicious soymilk from batch to batch. I make 6 to 12 batches of soymilk per week using this soymilk maker, each batch consisting of 100 grams of beans soaked overnight, and filtered water. Each batch processes quickly and quietly, and I have not encountered a single problem with any aspect of the process. The soymilk is smooth and creamy after filtering and makes the best tofu you will ever eat.

Fit and finish are excellent. The folding handle is sturdy, and cleaning couldn't be easier. Do remember, however, to clean the soymilk maker immediately. The soymilk/okara mixture clinging to the machine elements will set up like cabin chinking if you let it sit too long. I rinse mine thoroughly between each batch, which just takes a few seconds.

Customer service is absolutely excellent. While I have never encountered a problem with the unit, I have contacted the company by email with questions about using more than the recommended amount of soybeans to try to make a thicker soymilk for a special type of tofu (kinugoshi). Their reponses have been extremely fast and helpful.

Making the volume of soymilk that I require is very time-consuming when done by hand. Really messy, too. The SoyPower Plus is fast, easy, and nearly mess free. I know from reading other reviews that a few people have encountered some problems with their units. I hate it when that happens to me, too, with any product. But I can honestly say that I would never want to be without my SoyPower Plus. If it breaks (heaven forbid), they will replace it. They are a great company with a superb product! And, I hope this review helps you make the decision to give this product a try. You can't beat the performance and customer service at the low price of the SoyPower Plus.

2.0 out of 5 stars Puzzled by the durability., June 23, 2012
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
The product worked great. I was not concerned when it first stopped working within few months. The company has been great in responding and replacing the broken unit. Unfortunately, the second unit stopped working within one month. Now the third one failed again less than three months. All failed during the soy milk making cycle. It seems to be related to the faulty sensor. This is unusual for an electronic product. I wonder if the durability of the product could be impacted by how it is used. If that is true, then the manual should exmplain it more clearly.

I've made soy milk with oats, rice and almond milk. Added a pinch of salt and tablespoon of honey. The pulp after straining reminds me of cream of wheat cereal. It was great too.

This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
In the last year and a half, I have ordered no less than 3 of the machines. After a friend or , family member see's how it works, and how easy it is to operate, I usually end up gifting it to them. This current one will no doubt find a new home soon. It is so easy to make soy, and you can invent new flavors using spices or other types of beans. This is one machine that my house can not do with out. We are now making strawberry tofu, and if it like the peach flavored we made last week, it's going to be killer.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great investment!, March 18, 2012
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I purchased this soymilk maker about a month ago, and I absolutely love this product! Some key points are that it is relatively quiet, takes only 15-20 mintues to make about one quart of soymilk, it only takes 1/2 of a measuring cup of dry soybeans to make the milk,and I think it makes a healthier product because it's fresh, and doesn't include additives such as carageenan, unless you add it in yourself. The recipe book says you can make the milk, and blend it with 8 dates. I think that's too much sugar though. I added only two dates WITH THE SOYBEANS, so I could skip the blending stage. It worked just fine. Adding one teaspoon of vanilla extract also helps with the flavor. Another thing I really like about the soymilk maker is that I generate less trash. I don't need to throw out two tetrapaks every week now. I wish I got this machine a lot sooner! One thing I didn't really care for was the small sample of soybeans that came with the machine. The soybeans were described as Non-GMO, but they weren't certified organic. I buy dry organic soybeans from the Whole Foods bulk bins for only $1.69 a pound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great machine, February 28, 2012
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
To date, I have no complaints about this machine. It does exactly what I want it to do, make nut milks, with no fuss and easy use. Home made nut milks are by far better tasting than store bought. This machine works like a charm. Cleaning the machine after making the milk is harder than the actual milk making. But if you clean right away, even this won't be an issue.

I did a lot of research on soy milk makers, read through endless blogs, watched many You Tube videos and this was the one that rose to the top. And to make it even sweeter, it was not as expensive as the next highest rated brand.

A 7-year warranty is available, I believe a 2-year is what comes with it. Everything fit together nicely, the white exterior is a pure white and it's worked like a charm since it's first use.

I saw some of the other comments about the lid not fitting right and the color not being white. They must be for some other soy milk maker or an older version because I did not experience any of this.

If you're looking for an affordable, multi-use, soy milk maker, this is the one.

This product is amazing! I bought this based on the reviews. Never regretted. I make fresh soy milk for my parents to drink every weekend. The flavor is uncomparable. This is as fresh as you can get it. It's as easy 1...2...3..
1) Wash and rinse the beans. Place the beans in a container of water.
2) 8 hours later, empty the water. Put the beans into the machine.
3) Pour water to the water line. Select Soy Milk. 20 minutes later fresh soy milk!

4.0 out of 5 stars great at soy milk NOT rice milk, January 26, 2012
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I have had this for about a month. It does a wonderful job at making soy milk and I love using the okara (by product of soy milk) for burgers and other things.

there are a few things that bother me.

1. the recipe "book"...
-first, but probably least important, is it's appearance. It doesn't look at all like a recipe booklet and they would serve themselves right by making it look more appealing and more organized... I'm sure the company has the means to do that.
-it doesn't mention the fact that rice milk CANNOT be made in this maker by it's self... Or if it can, it doesn't explain how or what kind of rice is best. I was excited about making some and so I just did as I thought I was supposed to with minimal instructions and came out with a starchy goo and a hearty mess to clean up. I'm, quite frankly, scared to even put rice with soy beans to even do a 3/4 to 1/4 like they suggest.
I haven't tried any other kind of seed, bean, or grain yet. I'm scared to, but I will.
-also the little measuring cup that comes with the box IS NOT 1 cup, for all who won't know. The recipe book says, or makes you think, that it is but it's definitely not. I think it's something close to 3/4 cup. So this may make it a bit confusing when measuring the right amounts. In one place book tells you to only use the measuring cup that they provide and in the recipes it tells you to use 1 cup of this or a 1/4 cup of that..... So one would naturally wonder if they mean a "REAL" measurement or their little measuring cups worth.... ??? hummmm?

***Just to put you all at easy though, I will tell you that about a 1/2 to 3/4 cup of UNSOAKED soybeans is about what makes a good consistency of milk. Although, as long as you only fill the container to the right amount of water AFTER you put the beans in, you can use a little more beans than that to make it more creamy.

2. the other nuisances that come with the machine are not to big a deal.
things like: there's no on and off switch, cleaning of machine head is not that great, and how much you can make at a time seem to be my only qualms with it so far.

I have had the soymilk maker for over three weeks now. It is great- very easy to use and easy to clean. The soymilk made tastes very nice which is as good as the one from the store except not as sweet, which is the way I like. For those who like sweet can certainly add sugar or sugar substitute. The cost is about 8 to 10 times cheaper than purchasing from the store and it is fresh with no preservatives added. I have used it 3-4 times a week. I highly recommend the product.

This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
We hesitated for some time on getting a soy milk machine. We had been making the soy milk in a blender and then straining by hand and then boiling. I was concerned about the ease of cleaning of a soy milk machine. However we should have purchased this machine before now. This machine is easy to clean if you clean right away after use. It come with a brush for this purpose. This machine saves a lot of time compared to the more manual method. I recommend buying it.

We have used other machines from other brands and this seems to be the most efficient one. It gives more okara (soy residue) and after the sifting it contains almost none solid particles on the milk. The cleaning process is very easy. We are very satisfied with the machine performance so far.

Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
This is a great machine - easy and quick. I am trying to switch my 6 kids over to Soy from cow milk. I thought of just doing it without a machine. But when you have 6 kids - time and ease are of the essence.

From start to finish it takes me about 20 minutes. I soak the soy beans overnight. In the morning I just put them in the machine and add water. 15 minutes later I have soy milk. I do strain mine SEVERAL times to thin it out. My kids like it better that way. Then we add a little sugar and whatever flavoring they prefer. I just keep several mason jars in the fridge and each one is a different flavor of soy milk.

Healthy and easy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular machine, December 11, 2011

This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I did not buy this at Amazon, I bought it directly from soymilkmaker.com for about the same price before seeing it here. It's a well constructed piece of machinery, and is pretty maintenance free from my usage. Basically I soak my beans overnight (about 10 or so hours) then strain the water out and pop them into the machine. Then, I put the water in which is level-marked on both a pitcher and inside of the machine. Put the top back on, lock it and push the button. Can't get much easier than that without someone else doing it for you. Afterwards, you pour it through the strainer into the pitcher, and put the akara in the strainer aside for whatever you want to do with it. (akara is the soybean remains, VERY protein-rich and very low in carbs. is neutral tasting, can make stuff from it)

So far I've used soybeans only, but you can use soybeans with rice, and different kinds of beans like black beans, etc. The soybean milk alone are pretty tasty. For 1/2 gallon of soymilk, I add in a teaspoon of vanilla extract & a little scoop of stevia for a touch of sweetness. I'm glad I bought it, it's well constructed and not feeling all plasticy like I thought it would. The metal and plastic are a nice tight fit and easily washable. I take like 1-2 minutes to wash after the milk is made, and that only takes about 20 or so minutes to complete.

All in all, it's a great addition to my kitchen.

5.0 out of 5 stars watch the price, it moves around a lot, December 4, 2011
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
great little soy/nut/grain milk maker, got it for the husband for christmas last year. We use a gold coffee filter for a final removal of the silt, we're finicky about texture. We aren't crazy about the pitcher it came with, it's plastic, but it works (wouldn't really want to spend more for a better pitcher, rather prefer to find it on our own). The "cleaning implements" that come with it are totally unnecessary - just clean it normally right when it's finished and it's easy. Shortly after I bought it the price rose up about 10$ every few days for a month, the fell back down, it seemed to vary wildly... I ended up watching the price just to see it move around. I recommend watching the price if it's higher than you'd like, it'll probably go back down. By complete coincidence I got it at the lower end of what I've seen of its range, around $120 or so I think, but that may have been to dump the 2010 beige models for the 2011 white models (I have no idea, just guessing - I don't care one color or the other, and the price is back down now, so who knows).

I hope to try to take it to the next step and make tofu and tempeh from the soymilk I make, but I've got a long list of kitchen experiments to get through first. The most helpful review (VHLok) convinced me to buy it and is still so thorough I don't have much more to add. The manufacturer seems to actually care about how their products are used and reviewed (a rare and wonderful thing in my mind), so I figured I'd leave a nice note :D

Love this soy milk maker. It's pretty easy to prepare -- just pour water and pre-soaked soy bean. Once it's done (non-stopping beeping), you have hot soy milk with wonderful aroma. The cleaning part is not bad either. Just soak the stainless steel parts in water before you are ready to clean. I have been making and enjoying soy milk daily since I bought this machine this fall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't make > 2 batches in a row, let machine rest! :), November 8, 2011
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I can't make myself drink water enough. I fixed this by drinking soy milk. I find it easy to drink 1.8QT soy milk/day (in general, Vietnamese like to drink soy milk & eat tofu :).

Plus, we have to take recycling things with us to bigger cities due to the lack of recycle place in our tiny city. So I thought of buying a soy milk maker to lessen recycled cardboard boxes & help a little to save environment.

I've used the machine every other day to make 4 batches/day (using sink water) since 2 months. I used to buy organic soy milk at stores. Now my home made soy milk tastes better!

The machine works very well. Just one time it kept beeping & I didn't know why because the water level was correct, the right amount of soy bean was soaked 12 hours. I thought it's because I used distilled water. So I changed to drinking water, it started beeping. I waited 1 hour & restarted with water from sink, it beeped again!

I emailed the seller. He promptly advised me to only make no more than 2 batches in a row & let the machine cool down. I retried the next day & it worked again!
I often made 4 batches/day, but I didn't notice that I was too busy with my toddler so I always let the milk maker cool down before the next batch. I've more experience now :)

I sometimes made Mung Bean milk & peanut milk. With Mung Bean milk, I drunk all of it (the okara of Mung Bean is very soft just like you're drinking thick milk! Less work for me! :) )

Vietnamese like to drink hot sweet soy milk as we believe hot drinks will help to melt unwanted fat in our body :) We also enjoy dipping "Banh Tieu" or "Dau-Chao-Quay" - kind of Chinese donuts (fresh deep fried donut) in hot soy milk & we find it very delicious! :) I also bought the home made tofu kit but haven't tried it yet. I will make tofu using this soy milk maker & enjoy my favorite breakfast: tofu with hot melt ginger sugar for breakfast! - usually, I bought silken tofu at store to make this breakfast plate but I will try to make it at home soon :)

BTW: I bought soy bean (product of USA) at Asian food stores: $1.75/bag of 16 oz. I can make 5-6 batches of soy milk from one bag.

In short: I highly recommend this Soya Power Plus maker to all people who like soy milk & tofu like me :)

If you put rice or something contains too much starch in it, because the soyapower plus soy milk maker is using a U-shaped heat tube, it may mess up with a burned milk, more over, the U-shaped heat tube will go black and not easy to wash.

Because I didn't know that, used sticky rice with rice+ mode, now I am feeling guilty, I returned the item.

I'll try a soy milk maker without U-shape heat tube, but heat from the bottom.

This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
The product is great. It's a kitchen workhorse for us, consistently producing good tasting soymilk daily. We've only put it through its paces for a couple weeks now, so I can't yet comment on durability but it's holding up well so far.

It's much easier and faster to make milk and then clean than I had expected. So far we've only done soy and mongbean, but both consistently come out very well, and the included recipe book boasts of a variety of other milks that we're looking forward to trying out.

Relative to $3-$4 for a half gallon of soymilk, we are about a month away from breaking even, which is why I refer to this as an investment.

My only complaint is capacity. You really can't make that much in one shot. We are a house of 3, and one batch lasts just about a day. However if your home numbers four or more you probably want to whip up 2 or more batches in a given day.

this machine is just great- I use it to make almond milk which is free from all the additives in the market- it couldn't be easier- just pop in the almonds and water, turn the machine on and off it goes. Clean up is pretty simple too. Really economical and delicious. I have also made soy milk which was great and I know there are many other possibilities which I haven't gotten around to yet- really helps me maintain my mostly vegan diet! Love it.

This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
Calling it a soy milk machine is really a misnomer; it's a rudimentary hot soy mash maker. They all are, but this one is clearly the best. Watch the video to understand what I mean:

1) Soak beans overnight in a separate wessel (you)
2) measure beans (you)
3) put beans into machine (you)
4) machine heats water, then pulverizes beans (machine)
5) eject bean mash into a separate vessel, through a strainer (you)
6) transfer bean milk into a suitable vessel to refrigerate (you)

Here's an idea: make a soy milk machine wherein you put an arbitrary amount of beans and water (ie: a bean reservoir and separate water reservoir), you press a button that says "make me some soy milk beeyatch" or rather "make me a pint / quart / half gallon / gallon depending on the number of times that button gets pressed"TM and then 8-12 hrs later, it has soymilk in a third reservoir, kept at a warm temperature, waiting for you to dispense.

THAT, is what I could consider to be a 'soy milk machine'

You know, one that meets an expectation in the same way that a bread machine makes bread, it makes soy milk. I want to point out that a bread machine, you measure the ingred's, put it in the mixing bowl and some time later, it mixed, it kneaded, it cooked and it poops out fully-formed, rtg bread. Soy milk seems even simpler than this bread process, yet, soy milk machines do far less. WHAT IS THE DEAL AMERICA?

suggestion: save your money, get a pressure cooker and a stick blender or use a vitamix / blendtec / ninja blender / omega juicer-grinder. You'll end up with the same soymash which you then have to strain (which is by FAR the most annoying part of the whole process and what you should hope a soy machine would deal with...).

First, when it's done making soymilk, it beeps; then you MUST unplug the machine; otherwise, it will keep on beeping. Wish there was an power on/off or cancel button so you don't need to plug and unplug if you want to make 2 batches of milk.

Second, the machine looks very big and makes you believe that it should make enough milk for a family of 4 easily, but you can only fill water between 2 very narrowed lines (hard to see and get it right because the small lines are too far deep at the bottom of the container.)

Third, if you put in 1 measuring cup of beans in, milk comes out watery and has on soymilk taste at all; if you put 1.5 cups of beans and let it blend twice, the 1/4 of the milk at the bottom becomes muddy.

Last, I am sure somewhere on the menu, it mentioned heating the water to 180 degree (mentioned in the customer review video but it is at immediately consumerable temperature when it's ready, so I am concerned if the water was ever fully boiled.

I never used another soymilk maker before, so maybe I had an unrealistically high expectation from it's description and reviews. Not sure what to do with the machine now.

Tip: If you put in a handful of oatmeal bought from Costco) with the soybeans, the milk will be much thicker and far less watery.

This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
My wife and I started making our own bean/nut/grain milks about a month ago to save cost and eliminate ingredients in processed milks found in our local grocery store. After thoroughly convincing ourselves that we were happy with this decision, we purchased the Soyapower Plus. So far, we've used the maker to make soy milk, almond milk, soy-almond-peanut-walnut milk, and almond-oat milk, and we've been happy with every combination! We go through so much milk, we have no doubt this will pay for itself quickly.

The maker itself is incredibly simple to use. Add soaked beans, water, and press one of the buttons, and you get fresh milk 15 minutes later! The taste is excellent, and cleanup isn't bad.

Oh, and we followed the advice of another reviewer and used the okara to make dog biscuits. That saved us some money on those as well!

The product arrived & is a very pleasant white shade. Delivery was on time & hassle free. This is the first soymilk maker I have ever purchased, so read as many reviews as I could first. It is most definitely easy to use & really easy to clean. The soymilk drinkers in the family say my first batch tastes as good as we used to get from the street vendors & restaurants in Asia! Hows that! Very happy.

This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
This soy maker works great. It is fairly easy to use and fully automatic. Just put the soy beans, water, and whatever else you want and push the botton. It makes delicous soy milk. (My recipe is soy plus oatmeal -- just enough oatmeal to make one bowl of oatmeal) I save the solid soy and oatmeal residue to mix , along with soy milk instead of water when I cook oatmeal. (delicious)

There is however one fundamental design flaw. This unit is very very difficult to clean. The unit comes in two parts: 1) a top part that includes all the electronics iuncluding the controls, blade, heater, etc., and 2) a pitcher which the top part fits into.

The pitcher is very easy to clean. Cleaning the top part is very time consuming.

The instructions make clear the top part should never be immersed in water. However it has many surfaces into which the cooked and semi solid soy residue adheres to, after you make the soy milk. This makes it difficult and time consuming to clean.

This is a shame, because this makes great soy milk q easily and automatically.

A better design would have all the parts that come into contact with the soy be removable and fully immersible, so that the unit wouldn't be so darn hard to clean. I don't know if there are any other soy makers that are easier to clean-- but be aware that cleaning this one will be a little difficult and time consuming.

I have never owned a soy milk maker, but love real soy milk and fresh tofu and was tired of doing the blender routine (which was long, tedious, and rarely used.) I also love almond milk. Spotting a machine that promised to make both was a great incentive to hit buy. I am so glad I did. The machine is fast and easy, and the results are delicious. As long as you clean up right away, clean up is a breeze. (looks like if you let it sit even a few minutes it will be much harder as the heating element will have the residual soy milk welded to it) I am so happy with this, I will be buying one for my daughter in the fall when she moves into her own apartment. I found this purchase to be well worth the price.

This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I should say from the beginning that I am a huge Silk Soy Milk fan. We drink it daily and use it for all of our cooking needs, which means that our personal bar is pretty high where soy milk is concerned.

Before I bought the SoyaPower Plus I tried making soy milk with my Vita Mix. It did okay, but the end product was not what I was looking for. It tasted too "beany" and was hard to make consistently.

I have used the SoyaPower Plus for about three weeks now and love it. The machine completes every step in 20 minutes and what you are left with are two primary things: Soy milk and okara. A little salt and / or sweetener if you wish and the soy milk is excellent each time. The okara can be added to bread, or used to make excellent veggie burgers.

Clean up is very simple as long as you do it immediately. The parts are hot when it is finished, but a little run in cold water will allow you to clean it up while the soy milk strains.

I give this machine my highest recommendation for 1) ease of use and cleanup 2) excellent results, and 3) the quality of the machine and supplemental items like the strainer.

This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I love this soy milk maker! it is soooo easy to use. I make soy and almond milk for drinking, cooking, and for making yogurt and tofu. i purchased organic soybeans from Amazon, and pay pennies for organic soy products made at home. I highly recommend the SoyaPlus :) 8/4/11: Update: I have been using my SoyaPower Plus Soy Milk Maker for a few months now. I am still 100% satisfied with my purchase. I save a fortune on soy milk, as it is just pennies to make at home. The taste is much better than store bought. The SoyaPlus is extremely easy to use. I put in filtered water and the soybeans, and press one button. Once the soymilk is ready, the machine beeps. I just strain the pulp and it is ready to drink or store in the fridge. One batch fills a 1.5 liter Rubbermaid BPA free flask. I have been experimenting with uses for the okara, or soy bean pulp. I LOVE my Soya Plus, and I highly recommend this machine.

This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I never owned a Soy Milk maker before, so I cannot compare the Soyapower to other devices available, but I can compare the end result to store-bought soy milk, and I believe I've tried most brands out there. I bought the product directly from Soyapower because they had a father's day special. It comes with a sample of soybeans that would suffice for 1.5 runs. Each run requires 100g of dry soybeans that you need to soak for 8-16 hours prior to making the milk. You can use a combination of other grains (rice, barely etc.) but I only use the soybeans. The whole process is super short (~15min, depends on water temperature you add) and all it requires other than the soybeans is water. I get my soybeans at wholefoods, and they cost about $2 for an amount sufficient for ~6 batches. A batch is about 8-9 cups of soy-milk. I'm confident this device pays for itself rather quickly when you consider how expensive organic, high-quality soy milk can be in stores. I use a reusable coffee filter to sieve the final product so the milk would be super smooth. A regular sieve would produce soy-milk with more sediments. The 'leftovers' (the okara) is a nutritional powerhouse you can add to your cooking/baking. I stir fry it with veggies.
I also ordered with the soy milk maker a tofu maker kit which is basically a mold with a seaweed coagulant. It requires 2 batches of soy milk and you can control the firmness of the tofu.

Pros:
-Silky, smooth, yummy soy-milk.
-Control how much sugar you add (I add 1tbsp of agave to the hot milk once it's done along with 2tsp of vanilla extract).
-Can make tofu as well.
-Can make excellent use of the okara leftovers.
-Quiet.
-One push of a button and the Soyapower does it all.
-Super easy to use.
-Pays for itself quickly.
-Can use a variety of grains/beans.
-Some people complain about an annoying beeping sounds it makes when it's done. I don't find it particularly disturbing, I actually think it's good because I tend to forget about stuff like that.

Cons:
-Tough to clean. I recommend cleaning it IMMEDIATELY after it finishes the cycle (careful, it's HOT). Otherwise the milk solidifies on the surfaces which are tough to reach and clean. Careful from the edges of the container (the snaps), I cut myself pretty bad once.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! That was EASY! See tips included..., July 1, 2011
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
We received our Soyapower Plus yesterday. Soaked the packet of beans overnight. I pre-washed the machine and all the parts. I bought two frigoverre 1L hermetically sealed containers ahead of time (we love our large one!) That was about all we did right. My fiancee overslept and the beans stayed soaking for longer than recommended time. I poured some water in the Soyapower Plus, but our mavea XL filter pitcher (love that, too!) wasn't full enough to fill the Soyapower to the correct lines. I put more water in to filter and left to read helpful tips on the web. After being confused about amount of beans, and what to add, etc., I decided I would use half the bag of included laura soybeans per batch so that I could make two batches (room for 'experimentation'). Then, I heard the machine running... My fiancee dumped ALL the beans into the Soyapower which was HALF-FULL of the required amount of water and just turned it on! Twice as many beans and half as much water!! Plus, the power cord was half sticking out of the machine head! As I pushed it all the way in, I thought for sure this would be a wasted attempt at making our own soymilk. I had read about scalding beans and whatnot and was sure our milk was going to be disgusting. We pondered opening it and removing beans, etc. but decided to stick with it and see what happens. Well, 15 or so minutes later, the machine stopped & beeped. We waited a few minutes to open it and used the included strainer and pitcher to strain the okara (he's planning on making "chicken strips", as per the included recipe). Then, we used a tea strainer to strain the batch into the glass pitcher (a lot of extra okara was caught!). The consistency and texture looked very appealing and the soft yellow color matches our kitchen. So far, so good! Then, it spent some time in the fridge to chill (it's very hot when it comes out). Soon, we couldn't wait any longer and popped open the jar of room temperature liquid to taste. A short toast and a few sips later and we were patting ourselves on the back about what great soymilk makers we are! Well, it had not much to do with us and almost all to do with the machine and from what I can guess, the yummy beans. I like it slightly warm and completely plain. It's DELICIOUS! Another reviwer said theirs had an "eggy" smell. Our does smell faintly like hard-boiled eggs; I 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 6 months for the cost of the Soyapower Plus 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 Soyapower! We're really looking forward to experimenting 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.

TIPS:
- 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
- don't freak out too much about the "right" amounts of things. For us, it worked out even though we didn't follow directions to a "T".
- 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!
- if you want to make RAW milks, or are looking for a stainless-steel version, check out the SoyaJoy G3 (by Sanlinx). It's sold here on Amazon and I have a review posted there, as well.

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! :)

Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I love this machine! It's crazy easy to use. It's really as simple as soaking the beans & adding the beans & water to the machine & pushing a button. It's loud, it scares my cat every time it grinds the beans. And it tastes different than store bought soy milk, but with a little sugar & vanilla, I think it tastes better. I found a local Asian store that sells 10 pound bags of soy beans for $10 so I'm saving tons of money. I also like the ocrara (the stuff that's left over) and after drying it & grinding it up I use it to bake bread. This is an excellent product, I wish I'd known about it earlier. I've already recommended it to all my friends.

*I've had it for few months now and I can't imagine living without it. I use it one to two times a week and it still works great. Clean up seemed to take forever when I first bought it, but after using it so much, it only takes a couple of minutes. I raved about it so much that my mom bought one after tasting my soy milk! I'm sure at this point, I've saved as much money in making my soy milk as I spent on the machine.

Mark Banke (San Jose, CA, US) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
The machine does all that it supposed to do and is pretty easy to clean up. Yes, color looks like UV-exposed plastic, but no big deal. Build quality is sufficient, although the latches may be a weak point over time. The top handle as a nice latch to prevent it from folding while cleaning the head unit. Noise? Yeah, somewhat, but it doesn't last too long. My biggest complaint? Not very much milk from the recommended quantity of beans. The good news is that processing time is quick enough to run 3 batches in an hour if one is so inclined. We have not experienced any strange metallic tastes. We washed the steel parts before use, and then ran the batch of beans that came with the machine.

My only concern is soy milk itself. Dr. Mercola has all kinds of bad news about soy. How much is true? I don't know. Are there any objective long term studies on the effects (both positive and negative) of soy milk and soy products on people? (BTW, is Dr. Mercola truly reputable? Are there other nutritional experts who care to comment about soy milk?)

5.0 out of 5 stars Long Beep! ::Update (replaced for free)::, June 5, 2011
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
::UPDATE::
After writing this review about the annoying glitch my machine was experiencing, Salinx shipped me a BRAND NEW machine, with a return label for my old machine, with no effort or charges to me other than dropping the old one off with UPS with their prepaid label! My machine was not at all even broken, only experience an frequent error! Good service. Upgrading to 5 stars
::UPDATE::

After having this machine for a little under 1 year and using it 1+ times per week, I'd like to share my experience. Let me first start by saying that I love the machine, how easy it (usually) is to operate, how easy it is to clean, and how the almond milk (I do mostly almond, only occasionally soy) is THE BEST ALMOND MILK anywhere.

Cons:
LONG BEEP! Usually the machine functions without problem, but sometimes it keeps stopping 2-5 minutes after starting (during the initial heating but before the blades start spinning). It stops and makes a single continuous loooooong beeeeeeep (very annoying), and does not run. This has to do with the water level. I always measure the water to between the two lines, but sometimes that is not precise enough. I have to pour out a little water, try running it again, add some water, try running it again, etc. to find the "sweet spot" in between the two lines where it will run. I sometimes have to do this 5 times, and it is a major hassle!
I don't read anyone else having this issue, is it just my unit? There are two stainless steel rods that extend down from the motor; a long one for water level and a short one to check for overflow. It sometimes helps prevent "long beep" if I scour these rods good and hard with a sponge before running it again even though they already appear shiny and clean. If anyone else has this issue please reply to my review, I'd be very curious.

Pros:
Easy to clean.
Easy to add ingredients and run.
Best almond milk ever. My (very simple) recipe: One of the included little plastic cups filled with almonds, soaked overnight, and then add just a pinch of oats. The oats thicken it up, but if you add too much the milk will become gelatinous.

Other thoughts:
I wish the plastic pitcher for straining out the okara was also stainless steel instead of plastic. Not really an issue, just personal preference. I don't like using a plastic vessel on such a frequent basis for boiling hot liquid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great machine--needs more filtering, May 26, 2011
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I may be one of the few people who drink soy milk because I like the beany taste, not because of the nutritional value or allergies. When I was a kid, we did the entire process by hand, pressing the beans through cloth (usually a pillow case), cooking the mixture over a low flame, etc. The process took all day and included the entire family. I was initially doubtful about this machine because other reviews stated that the filtering was done outside the machine; and, indeed, that step is the only flaw in the process. In order to get all of the soy solids out of the liquid, I had to strain each batch 3 times, with increasingly finer strainers, ending with a permanent coffee filter. Even with this extra step, I found that this machine lives up to its promise. The motor is incredibly powerful--it gets the beans as finely ground as I can get with my blender--and very quick. In less than 20 minutes, including the extra filtering, I had fresh soy milk, as good as I had it as a kid. I gave a machine to my mother, whose English is limited and who is not very comfortable with new gadgets. She was able to use it with ease. Shipping through Amazon was great--it was packed in a larger box with extra paper, so there was no damage to the machine upon receipt. Hope this review is helpful!

This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I love this product, I am saving money every week on soy milk. The SoyaPower Plus paid for itself in only 2 months. Plus paid for the 30 lbs of soy beans I purchased at the same time.
It does take a few trial and error recipes to get the soy milk to your own taste, I like 2 tablespoons of light corn syrup and 1 1/2 tablespoons of sugar. I tried maple syrup it is fine but very expensive.
Thanks for saving me money every week. I only wish I had done this years ago.JMO

This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
It is a great pleasure to write a review for the Soyapower Plus soy milker maker.

Before I bought it, I did a lot of research to make the decision. I am very glad that I did the right thing for my whole family.

It Is So Easy. Just soak the soy bean overnight, next morning wash it and add water as instructed, ~20 minunits later, You have fresh, hot, healthy soy milk!!

There were several low rate reviews about it. I learned from others that you have to follow the manual to avoid those damage or bad taste output.

First, Please Do wash the soaked soybean several times before you put into the machine. The overnight soaked water might not give you a satisfied favor.

Second, the soybean you used is important. Think about it, the raw material is the basic of your result. The machine is just a machine, it is not a miracle maker. The key is to buy the organic soy bean from local store.

The last but not the least important thing is Never,Ever put the machine head under the water. It is the electric part of the machine. If you do this frequently, please do not surprise that your soy milker maker refused to work later. You kill it because you do not follow the direction.

This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I have medical reasons to no longer eat or drink foods with preservatives or additives in them. I love soy milk but hated the long messy process I went through to make my own, so when I decided to purchase a soy milk maker I did a lot of research first and the one I kept coming back to was this one. I use it at least 3 or 4 times a week & it taste so much better than store bought soy milk without any additives added to it!! Since I use the milk for fruit smoothies I use it plain without adding sweeteners or flavoring to it but it does come with a little book with recipes for different foods and flavorings. An added bonus for me is I use the Okra (left over bean pulp) for cooking banana bread.

All I do to make it is to soak some beans overnight (I soak mine in the refrigerator, it taste better), rinse the beans, add water to the pitcher, put in the beans and plug in. It is so easy to do!! The only drawbacks I have found is when you strain it there is a bit of sediment left over from the beans which is easy to fix just by putting a layer or two of cheese cloth in the strainer and it helps to filter out even more. The second one is just remembering to soak the beans!

Personally, for the money, you just cannot beat this product!! It makes the milk quickly, quietly and cheaply!! Well worth the investment!! You are in control of what you put in your body so goodbye to chemicals, additives and preservatives!!!

At first, I had difficulty using this product since the working voltage 110V or 220V is not posted in the product info. I purchased this in the US and was used in the Philippines. I thought this has an auto voltage so I plugged it in the 220V. I got burned transformer. luckily, I repaired it and had it work.

Been using this product since and I'm amazed on how it makes soya milk for me.

I love this machine! Easy to use, very little waste, and the soymilk is pure and healthy and cheap! I'm looking forward to trying almond milk as well. The Laura soybeans are very mild and easy to order, You can't go wrong with this machine. If you heat the water before you put it in, it takes about 15 minutes to get soymilk. It's so mild tasting that I haven't been sweetening it. I do like it made with some brown rice.

The okara (bean pulp) which is left over is delicious added to baked goods or used to make burgers. I also found a great dog biscuit recipe: 3 pts okara, 1 pt flour, 1 pt peanut butter. Score, then bake @ 350 20-30 minutes. Break apart and dehydrate until dry to your liking.

I've also been making tofu with soymilk from this machine and it is really delicious. I highly recommend this machine. Maybe it's not gorgeous, but I just tuck it into the cupboard. Oh! Forgot to mention - it's also pretty easy to clean.

Excellent machine, easy to operate, easy to clean, works quick and relatively quietly. I washed the stainless steel parts first before using. I also soaked the beans with a dash of baking soda for 10 hours and rinsed well. I added sugar and vanilla extract for excellent flavor. I also cleaned while the meal was warm and soft.
The first batch was excellent and a good learning experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice to have an easy way to make milk again . . ., April 20, 2011
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
We owned a unit with the metal filter that catches all the soy pulp and that was nice, but super pain in the butt to clean all the tiny little holes in the metal cup. After that one died (after about 14 months) we used our steamer/Vitamix blender to make soy milk. That was cheap since we already had the tools but a pain to filter the milk in a cloth bag and basically way to many dishes dirtied just to make milk.

I bought the Soyapower Plus to make it easy again to have milk in the house all the time. Soak the beans then start Soyapower plus and in minutes milk is ready. The notification that the process is done is loud enough to let you know, but not so loud that you could not ignore it if you are in the middle of something. It does not end until you unplug the unit (well, at least 2 minutes because that is the longest I have let it beep at me). Dumping the milk through the screen is easy and rinsing off the screen even easier and we can still use the soy pulp for making pita bread. A great way to add fiber and protein to pita bread.

Overall a great purchase and a great way to make soy milk super cheap at home with little fuss.

PRO
- quieter than I expected

- makes great soy milk

CON
It's ugly. All function and no form. The physical design is the product's weakest point by far. Everytime I take it out, I'm a little offended that the minimum of effort didn't go into the looks. It is the color of plastic that has been baking in the sun - a sickly, yellowish color. One buttons on the interface looks like it defaulted to Courier. Each label has a different size font.

This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
Just made my first batch of homemade rice milk. I used 1/2 cup organic long grain brown rice(not the cup that came with the machine just a standard dry 1/2 cup measure) and 1 tbsp of oat groats. I followed the directions, soaked the grains for 6-8 hours, placed them in the container, filled the water between the fill lines and pushed the rice+ button. The machine did it's thing and in about 20 minutes it beeped. I let it cool down and strained the milk into a glass container. Very little "okara" was left. The consistency was a little too thick so I just added some filtered water. I also added some sea salt and some brown rice syrup to taste and it made quite a bit from just a 1/2 cup. I probably wouldn't add water if I wanted a "creamer" but since I was looking for milk consistency I did this time. For very little effort, I will save money, have fresh rice milk that contains no preservatives and only ingredients that I approve. Another thing I'm really happy about is I won't have all the stupid boxes that are left over from rice/almond/oat milk that you can't recycle, so less waste. As far as the product quality & lasting, I have no idea because I only just made my first batch. I will update if something goes wrong or in a few months if everything still works.

*update Nov 30, 2011* The rice maker is still working without any issues. I still use the same formula, 1/2 cup of organic long grain brown rice and 1 tablespoon of some other grain. Lately I've been using barley, but you can use oat groats or something else. I think I will try hato mugi next time around. After the rice is done while it is still hot, I drop in 6 chopped dates to sweeten and salt to taste. After it cools off I put it in the blender. I have found the dates sweeten it enough without the need to add brown rice syrup. I have also purchased a 1 QT glass pitcher Bormioli Rocco Frigoverre 78 Ounce Glass Pitcher With Frosted Lid to store the milk which is just the right size if you don't water down your rice milk at all. If you do, get the 2 LT. So far I love this machine! Hope this helps.

side note: if you already own a Omega Vert Juicer Omega VRT330 Dual-Stage Vertical Single-Auger Low-Speed Juicer, you can make nut and soy/rice milk with that too.

I bought this product after reading all of the reviews. I am so pleased with it! The machine is easy to use, it takes 15 min to make, and the clean up takes just a few mins. I really enjoy the almond milk, and soy milk I have made. I soak the beans/almonds over night, make the milk in the morning. I usually make 2 batches and it lasts for approx 4 days before I run out. With my heavy schedule this has been such an easy chore to carry out.

This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I have used this soymilk maker at least twice a week for the past 2 months. Here are some things I would have liked to know prior to my purchase. Homemade soymilk has a "greener" or "grassier" taste than storebought. The machine head does not form a water tight seal against the pitcher, but I have never had an issue with my soymilk boiling over. There are 2 fill lines that you can choose from. The top fill line (which is the one I use) yields 6 cups of soymilk. There are rubber feet which prevent the device from being "scooted" across the counter. I have never had an issue of the strainer falling into the pitcher provided by the company. There is some residual sediment using this strainer, but I lessened the amount by straining my milk twice. The first strain gets pressed with a rubber spatula and the okara emptied, then I rinse the strainer well and pour the milk through again. The pitcher that is supplied is mystery plastic, which might concern some as you are pouring a hot liquid into it. I recommend purchasing a glass container to store the milk in. I have had great success in soaking my beans at room temp for at least 36 hours (not sure I would do this during warmer weather, though). I do not remove the skins. I did not notice much difference in taste by removing the skins, but I do notice a difference with shorter soaking times. To the finished milk, I add 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp salt and 3 T brown sugar to each batch. If you want a creamier mouth-feel, add 1 1/2 T millet per batch (I also soak this). I do not sterilize my equipment or storage container, and the milk has stayed good for up to 8 days.

After a move from Pennsylvania to Hawaii, we discovered the power cord to our Soyajoy soymilk maker was missing. After a call to Sanlinx, Inc., a cord was promptly sent to us for the cost of postage and handling only. We are very grateful to know that this company stands behind what it sells. Thank you so much; we will again make that great homemade soymilk that is so healthful.

As a macrobiotic/vegan I use a lot of milk and it can get very expensive especially when buying almond milk and the like. This machine is phenomenal and a whole lot easier to use AND CLEAN than I was figuring. Just clean it right away so the ingredients don't get hard in/on it.
I've been making almond milk and hemp milk. I buy my hemp seeds on amazon as well http://www.amazon.com/Nutiva-Bulk-Organic-Hempseeds-Pound/dp/B0012C7VLG .

It's a very well made product so have no doubts about buying it if you're even only half thinking about it. You also save oodles of money making your own.
I do wish there was some kind of on-line recipe book for milk though. I'm still trying to find a better way to sweeten up my milk with out using sugar so that it tastes similar to store bought milks. I tried brown rice syrup but that didn't do the trick. Vanilla doesn't sweeten it at all..it just gives it a vanilla taste which is nice too. I think next I'll try using some organic dates to sweeten it up.
Great product!

5.0 out of 5 stars The First Product I felt inspired to review, with Tips, February 24, 2011
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
This is such a great product I had to write my first review. It's reliable, easy to use, easy to clean and pays for itself very quickly. We own the original soyapower soy milk maker and loved it, but this is a vast improvement.
Here's how it works. Just soak 1/2 cup of soybeans overnight, fill Soyapower Plus with cold water to the indicated line and dump the soaked beans into the water. Clip the motorized top to the bean filled bottom, plug it in, and press the "Soy +" button. Ta da!
My TIP, I know others recommend this also: Buy a cheap "gold" reusable coffee filter and some wide mouth quart mason jars. When the machine beeps that its done, just push the coffee filter into the wide mouth mason jar and pour the soymilk through the filter. You will get perfectly filtered soymilk and its already in the jar ready for the fridge. (Use a large spoon to squeeze out the milk faster) Rinse and swish the machine and the whole thing is clean and ready for the next batch.
If you buy soymilk, STOP! It's loaded with carageenan and is very expensive. With bulk soybeans from Whole Foods our cost is less than 30 cents a quart! Add sugar or vanilla if you like it sweet. If you have the original soyapower, buy this one anyway. You'll love never having to clean that filter again!

Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I am so very glad to have purchased this machine for a number of reasons.

1) CUSTOMER SERVICE rec'd is the HIGHEST and MOST RESPONSIVE I have ever rec'd.

2) The flwg are the benefits of purchasing SOYAPOWER PLUS over another MORE EXPENSIVE machine:

READ THIS BEFORE YOU PURCHASE ANY OTHER SOY MILK MAKER!!!!!

Quote:
The SoyaPower Plus can do everything the 930P does, plus some more:

It has insulation to reduce the noise and energy use and also not too
hot to touch.
It is built more durable,
Two safety contact switches vs. one, and also more durable switch design
Safety lock to lock the machine head to the pitcher during operation.
Four operating buttons for more milk making options
It is UL listed while the other is not
Not a single part on the 930 is more premium than the SoyaPower Plus.
Actually it costs at least 20% more to make the SoyaPower Plus due to
the premium components and safer design.
SoyaPower Plus also offers same 7-year warranty for $169.
Just check user rating on Amazon.
Unquote.

3) The "filterless" Soyaplus is very forgiving in terms of quantity of ingredients (within reason) and cleans up amazingly quick as advertised. This flexibility allows a degree of "experimenting" that could not easily be done with other models.

4) The Soyapower Plus does make approx. 20% more milk (efficiency in grinding).

5) It is QUICK. I use boiling water when making soy milk which eliminates having to wait for Soya Plus to heat it. Even using cold water it is only an extra couple of minutes. FYI.

6) A reviewer, Mr. MacGuffin taught me to add 1 tablespoon or two of RAW/ORGANIC Pumpkin seed to make the soy milk taste richer. IT WORKED!!!! My MAIN concern in purchasing any soy milk maker was the consistency. (i.e. Will it be too watery?)
Well the addition of pumpkin seeds (no soaking required) just after adding the soy beans made all the difference in the world.

In a nutshell, my review has covered:
1) Stellar customer service that literally shocked me. EVERY CONCERN/QUESTION was addressed QUICKLY.
2) Quality of manufacture (i.e. UL listed)
3) "Filterless" flexibility
4) Grinding efficiency resulting in increased milk production
5) It is quick, well insultated (no hot to touch), and less noise.
6) Fantastic consistency with the addition of 1~2 tbsp of RAW pumpkin seeds.

I forgot to mention how much FUN it is to make soy milk vs. doing it by hand. Start to finish (using pre-soaked soybeans), it takes 25 minutes and that INCLUDES CLEAN UP - 5 MINS.

The SOYAPOWER PLUS and the Sanlinx Co., have my very highest recommendation. PERIOD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works great, a few minor issues/suggestions with product design, January 28, 2011
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I bought this maker with a few colleagues. As it is my first soy milk maker I don't have comparisons. However I do believe it works wonders for what it is supposed to do.

I'd skip the PRO parts since it's been said enough, which also compelled me to get this model. Let me jump into the CONs, which is more an annoyance during my use, if people do care.

1. The container heats up very quickly while it's working. I accidentally touched it and almost got burned. I have no doubt it meets safety requirement but if any suggestions I'd say provide better insulation for the bottom container so it won't be uncomfortable to touch/handle. After it is not a cast iron product, around which I'd know to handle with extreme caution.

2. The indication of "COMPLETE" is not clear enough to me. I heard from other people there would be a series of beeping sounds upon completing working cycles. However I missed it as I was watching TV in another room. As I came back and checked on it I couldn't tell where it stood in the working cycle. The reds lights were both still on and stayed RED. I would suggest a GREEN indicator light to signal completion of cycle. It shouldn't take much to do that.

3. The markers for water level are very difficult to read on the reflective/shiny interior material of the container. The lighting is normal in my kitchen. I had to turn it around several times to locate those tiny bars. It's difficult to tell where to stop also as I added water. Those should be clearly marked and visible to users. I don't want to lose my eye sight just by searching for those.

Those are tiny issues but a good indicator for quality high-end products, maybe this is not shooting for that category. Some convenience will be appreciated from a regular user, or one planned to be.

I ordered this product for a Christmas gift. It was listed for $119 until I ordered it where I was charged $129. The soymaker is a terrific product and performed wonderfully. Within a week it was listed as $119 again. I was very disappointed in this $10 temporary price increase and feel that that was unfair. Regardless, the product itself is a fine product and I am contemplating ordering another. There is a small amount of grit in the soymilk but straining it through a cheesecloth takes care of that.

The SoyaPower Plus is a great item. It makes it incredibly easy and uncomplicated to make soy (and other types of) milk quickly. And the set-it-and-forget-it operation makes it easy to get other things done while the soy milk is being prepared. Inside of 1 hour, using the SoyaPower Plus, I had enough fresh and delicious soy milk to make 1 pound of tofu and a whole batch to drink. The construction is solid, and the documentation clear. I would recommend the SoyaPower Plus to anyone who wants a hassle free method for making soy milk.

There are two things that I like about this unit over the previous model: 1. It is much more quiet and 2. It is easier to clean due to the fact that is doesn't have the inner filter.

This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
It was packaged very nicely and easy to unpack, without any big mess of Styrofoam.
The packaging was so nice that I kept it for further use.
The appliance came with everything needed to use it; a pitcher and size matched stainless steel sieve, a little measuring cup for the beans, even a scrubby pad and a brush, and a nice recipe book.
The user instructions were obviously not written by a native speaker of English, but they are easy to understand and follow and entertaining too.
The soy-milk maker is very easy to use and clean and makes very nice soy-milk without any hassle at all.
I have not tried out it's other functions and only time will tell how long it will last in service.
So far I am very pleased with this product and I hope that it will last many years, because I much prefer the homemade soy-milk over the store bought.
I would highly recommend this product to anyone wanting a hassle free home scale soy-milk maker.

This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I bought this as a gift for my sister and her two young kids. I looked around many places trying to find a good deal and the easiest machine to clean, this seems to be the right one. My sister used it once and liked the simple process. The soymilk came quick and tasty. However, her kids don't want to drink it when it's cold because the soybean smell is much more noticeble when the soymilk is colder. Of course, you might want to add sugar so kids will enjoy it more.

Pretty straight forward producing fresh soy milk. It does the job right. Cost of soybean to produce daily soy milk is low. Hope it last long enough to show the real value.

Cleaning takes 3 to 4 minutes, if it is ok with you.

5.0 out of 5 stars SoyaPower Plus, October 2, 2010
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
This is the best Machine EVER. it is so easy to use. And cleaning it is so simple and fast. I have their other SoyaPower and this is even superior. It is so great I ordered two and gave one as a gift. The milk turns out fantastic and has a wonderful flavor and taste Your milk is only going to be as good as the beans or nuts you use. So perhaps the person who said that the milk tasted funny beans were not good, But i can tell you it is not the Machine. I use mine every other day and no problems.
This is a great Soymilk Maker and if you don't have one buy the SoyaPowerPlus NOW, you'll never regret it. I make all the other milks too, rice, almond and they are just as good. This machine does a fine job. I would not be with out it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Makes Great Soymilk - Quickly & Easily, September 20, 2010
By 
Mary Anna Singer (Crescent City, FL United States) - See all my reviews
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I've been using this every couple of days since I got it. It's not beautiful or elegant, but it is quite functional -- VERY easy to use & makes soymilk quickly, which is what I want from it.

The soymilk is delicious & I prefer the full-flavored organic beans that I buy in bulk to make tempeh over the "less-beany" sample that comes with the machine. But that is a matter of taste. Our preference is to add 1/2 to 1 full teaspoon of vanilla, 1 tablespoon of agave syrup and a generous pinch of cardamom to the hot milk. It tastes even better the next day.

Clean up is fairly quick & easy; although I can see that if you aren't thorough after each use, you could end up with somewhat of a mess as soy can be as stubborn as egg yolk after it dries.

I was pleased with the little accessory package that was included. The strainer & pitcher may not be "top-of-the-line" but they do work quite well for their intended purpose. The strainer fits the top of the pitcher precisely and filters out most of the sediment. We made okara burgers for the first time, using the enclosed recipe book and they were very tasty. I'm really looking forward to making tofu and oncom soon.

Economy is the main reason I made this purchase -- we go through 2-4 quarts of soymilk per week and buying organic soymilk is quite expensive, as well as being less eco-friendly with all the packaging. This purchase will pay for itself in a few months, just for soymilk, not to mention tofu and okara uses.

My one complaint is the inability to make "raw" milks, e.g., almond, sunflower, etc., due to the lack of controls to eliminate or reduce the heating portion of the process.

If you use soy on a regular basis, I urge you to go organic and whole-food or home-processed, as many commercial soy products involve the use of hexane, which is a neurotoxin (visit [...] or google "soy hexane" and research it for yourself). The SoyaPower Plus is a wonderful tool to help you control what's in your soy foods.

5.0 out of 5 stars So glad I made the investment!, September 7, 2010
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I am new to making homemade soy milk and tofu, so I thought I would try with just a blender and appliances I already owned. The process worked well but it was very time consuming and messy.

I broke down and decided to invest in the higher end machine, the SoyaPower Plus Soymilk Maker. I received it within a week of my order. I have to say I am thrilled with the quality of the appliance and it's capabilities. Very easy to use and clean, and comes with lots of great recipe ideas. Accommodates creativity with all kinds of grain & bean combinations. If you purchase your beans and grains in bulk it will surely pay for itself over and over and over again. The quality assurance of homemade milks in itself is worth the investment! I can't wait to experiment further!

5.0 out of 5 stars soy maker broke, amazing customer service replacement, September 4, 2010
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I wrote this review several weeks ago, and noticed that there was a reply from someone at the company. As a result, they communicated with me personally, and are sending me a replacement soymilk maker. I am now really happy with the customer service, so this review is now a positive one. I think it's great that this company monitors and responds to customer reviews, and follows through with excellent customer service.

Original review, before customer service assistance:
I was really excited about this soymilk maker. I bought it 8 months ago. I make soymilk 2-3 times a week. At first I was not happy about no on/off switch, but not too big of a deal. I quickly realized that clean up is tricky, since you have to keep water from entering the top of the soymilk maker, yet you are trying to wash the area just below it. After a few uses, the buttons stopped beeping, and I emailed the manufacturer. They answered me promptly, and offered to replace it if it was broken, but also cautioned me about getting water in the head. They suggested I let it dry fully, and be more careful. That did work, and I have been more careful. However this month, the soymilk maker has started to either beep or not beep when it's supposed to, and finally, it no longer finishes the grind cycle. I emailed the manufacturer again, but have gotten no response.
For this price, 8 months is not a very good lifespan. Also, if the design of the product leads to it breaking if water gets into the head, that is problematic.
Now I need to throw this away (which is frustrating, because partly I make soymilk to avoid throwing away all the cartons), and also find a better product to purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really great appliance..., August 17, 2010
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I purchased this Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker because in addition to soymilk, it may be used for almond milk and rice milk. Understand, the product produced at home is quite different from the ones in the grocery. The process is different, ingredients are different and the taste is different, and the ones on the shelves are produced for long-term storage. So do not expect this to be a miracle machine that makes milks that taste like the commercial ones. Do expect it to produce wholesome milks very inexpensively. However, your finished milks will not be any better than the ingredients you use. If you use old, stale or poorly stored nuts and grains, it will be reflected in the taste. As it turns out, I cannot use soymilk, but I love the almond and rice milks that I make with this appliance. They are great for smoothies, and for cooking. The byproduct,okara,is a wonderful addition to baked goods, oatmeal, pancakes, etc. I even add some to my meatball mix. YUM.

Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I cost a long time to search a soy milk make. As I read through many online reviews and discussion, I think that the SoyaPower Plus is the right choice for me. This is the first time I'm buying a soy milk machine.
As I received this machine, I made the soy milk from the Laura beans sample they sent with the package. Yet, it makes absolutely delicious soybean milk. From them on, every day morning, the first thing is make a bottle of soybean milk for my family after I wake up. It's very easy to operate and after-use cleanup.
These days, when someone drink my delicious soy milk, I will not hesitate to recommend this SoyaPower Plus Milk Maker. I'll tell them good milk, good milk maker!

The SoyaPower Plus is a gadget well worth finding a space for it! Have only used soy beans so far, but plan to try rice and other ingredients. The flavor is very good, left alone or with a little vanilla and sugar or honey added. Easy to use, easy to clean. Saving money, no unwanted ingredients and it works very well with my food storage plan, which is more challenging without milk and other dairy products.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm never out of soy milk now!, August 10, 2010
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
While I bought this to economize on soy milk, I've found I like the homemade so much better than commercial soy milk. Even using top-of-line organic non-gmo beans, I calculate about 35 cents a batch, and the batch is almost 6 cups. Sometimes I put it all in jars and chill, other times I put up just 1 quart and drink the rest still hot. (Especially good with a bit of honey or maple syrup)

I will say that milk made from plain soybeans can be very plain tasting, but there are so many ways to add variety:
80% soybeans/20% brown rice makes it slightly sweet and noticeably creamier; using white rice gets the creaminess without sweetness -
Soy can also be mixed with other beans, for different color & taste -
After the processing, add whatever flavorings & sweeteners you like.

The machine takes out all the kitchen drudgery and mess of making milk, just soak beans/grains/nuts 8-12 hours, pour off the soaking water, put fresh water in the machine with the food, and pick the appropriate cycle. Cleanup is easy as well, and to give it a head start, immediately after pouring the soy slurry into the filter I refill the machine with water so it cools and soaks while I deal with putting up the milk (e.g. adding chocolate or vanilla)

The entire process is finished within 30 minutes, and should be even quicker if the machine is loaded with hot water rather than cold, as the process involves grinding beans at or above 180 degrees F., and keeping hot while grinding.
Realizing I've had the machine less than one month, I cannot yet comment on mechanical reliability, but can say it appears well built and has had no trouble handling everything I've put in it so far. I highly recommend this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use, give real soymilk, August 8, 2010
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
First I should emphasize that it is actually filter free. Some part of the recipe is strange, because it is said:put the beans into the filter; then laterly I noticed that manual said: put the bean directly into the container. I think some part of the recipe is for the old model, but not this one. So I was confused a little at the beginning.

It is easy to use, the soy milk is exactly the same taste as when I was young. All soy-milk sold in store is very thick, must including other materials other than soybeans. Therefore, it is more safe to make my own soy-milk with the natural taste. The real and natural soy-milk can't last more than one days because of no preservatives, so you should drink it right after you make it or put it into fridge within less than two days.

Everyone said it is easy to clean, but it still needs patience to clean, by the brush. The downside of all soymilk machine is that the head of the machine can't be washed, but the major part is attached to the head and can't be removed. So it is still need time to wash it completely and cleanly.

Another suggestion is that I hope Soyapower gives more recipe. If it is not easy to print a different manual, set a blog part into Soyapower's website and let the consumer to submit different recipe there will be a best choice. It is hassle free and always up to date.

I haven't make Tofu yet, will report what the Tofu looks like.

This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
Sorry, guys but I really don't have time to write an adequate review. Suffice to say that I have owned this product now for about two weeks and have made two different types of "milk" every three days or so. The first was a straight soy milk. As the other reviewers have so eloquently pointed out, it is quite natural tasting and I've found that the addition of some flavoring takes it to a whole new level. As for the second concoction, I followed the hemp seed and oat recipe posted by another reviewer and found it to be amazing. It was rich, creamy, and smooth. It had the mouth-feel of drinking whole milk! My kids even loved it!

As for the clean up, it is indeed quite fast and easy. The color? It doesn't really phase me because I store it in my cabinet. The only suggestion I'd like to offer is that you use a tempered glass pitcher to store the milk. There is just too much information out there on dioxins leaking out of plastic containers when they are exposed to extreme heat or cold. I'm really not sure if this is akin to urban legend or not, but as far as I'm concerned it's not worth the risk... especially if you're the sort to make your own alternative milk!

Alright, signing off as One Very Satisfied Customer!

I used to make my own soymilk by boiling beans in a pot and grinding it in a blender. Hardest part is getting milk out. So when I got the product and saw strainer, I was very disappointed. While I contacted Sanlinx about return/exchange, customer service person explained so well that I thought I'll give the machine a try.

Filtering was very easy and milk was great. I was so thankful because not only am I happy with the machine but also I didn't have to go through return/exchange hassle.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful and indispensible machine, June 27, 2010
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
While everyone will have a different experience with soy milk machines, I have to admit I really like this machine. It was a ton of fun to use. If you look in the photo albums, I'll have pictures of my usage with it.

Shipping from Sanlinx was very fast. I received my machine within days of the order. It was double-boxed with one plain brown packing box over the retail box for the unit. Inside the retail box, it appeared that recycled cardboard was used to keep it packed safely. There were no dings or tears on the packaging. Inside my box was not only the soymilk making machine, but my tofu making kit. Tofu making in another note.

Inside my Soyapower Plus box was the soy milk maker STEEL canister, a plastic canister with handle, fine steel mesh strainer, cleaning kit that includes a scrub brush and green scrubbing thin pad, the soy milk maker STEEL blender/crusher piece with heating element, tornado funnel, separate power cable, 100g measuring cup, and enough Laura beans for making 2 batches of soymilk.

Everything seemed fairly intuitive, but I read the directions anyway because I didn't want to accidentally break something. Here is a basic process for making soy milk (not my recipe, see other notes for that):

* Soak 3/4 to 1 measuring cup of soybeans (the cup with the machine, not a standard US cup) 8hrs to overnight.
* Fill the canister to the water fill lines. (These are raised metal lines inside the canister)
* Add the soybeans.
* Attach the tornado funnel to the blender/machine piece (quick twist on to lock)
* Insert the blender piece inside the canister and flip the locks (makes it like a pressure cooker)
* Plug the unit up, and press the Soybean button
* Wait until it beeps and strain milk through the strainer (separates the solid okara from the milk) into the plastic canister

Outside of soaking, this process of setting up the unit to make milk takes less than 5 minutes and then the milk making process is about 20 minutes without you having to do a thing.

This was incredibly easy to do. I really enjoyed making soy milk with this and it was super, super easy. Clean up was a snap. I rinsed with warm water and then soapy water. Where okara 'stuck' to the unit, I used the cleaning tools provided with the unit and was easily done in minutes. I think I spent maybe 3 minutes cleaning up after I was done and that was the first time I used.

Quality of the milk made was great. And of course, you get to decide how you want to make your milk and how it will taste. There are no preservatives, so I give it a max of 3 to 5 days in the fridge. Though you do want to use some sort of thickener or stabilizer if you're going to put it in your coffee. I had curdling when adding to hot liquid so I'm still working on that.

The unit is surprising lightweight as well and the construction very sturdy. I have experienced very few leaks from the seal at the top. Those can occur if you do not measure the water and beans correctly. Mostly water from boiling. It makes very little noise, it is actually much quieter than my blender and food processor. The outside can get warm, it is boiling water and beans after-all, but it does not burn your hands if you touch it. A plus if you have kids. In addition, there is no internal filter, so this also helps with clean up and reduces any restrictions from the amount of beans, nuts, or grains you want to make into milk.

The instructions were very easy to follow and they include a recipe book that is SEPARATE from the primary instructions. I love that because I was able to add it to my little recipe bookshelf and store the instructions and warranty information elsewhere.

In addition, this unit can make rice milk, mung bean milk, and other bean, nut and grain milks just by selecting different options on the control panel. The recipe book includes ideas and recipes on how to make these and which option you should pick but they say you are completely free to experiment. I do have to say the motor is very powerful and the beans are ground very, very fine to extract as much milk as possible.

My only thing is that I would LOVE if they included some sort of lid for the plastic container you drain the milk into. However, I did happen to have one that mostly fit. There is a slight lip in the container for allowing to pour easily. I also have transferred the milk to this cute 1 quart container I have that has a lid.

This review was recently created for the Soy Milk Facebook fanpage ([...]), of which I am the creator and lead administrator. You can also find several detailed pictures of the unit in the photo albums on the fanpage.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Purchase, June 27, 2010
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I have had the Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker for about one year now and have never had any problems with it. I would highly recommend purchasing it if you are interested in making your own soy milk and saving money.

THE MACHINE
It is sort of a light green color from the 70s and not white at all. I would have preferred white, but I'm not terribly concerned about it. What struck me when I first got it is how sturdy and simple the machine was. I have used it a lot over the last year and it looks and works the same as it did the first day. It may not be pretty, but it gets the job done. It is also worth the cost. I used to spend at least 10 dollars a week on store-bought soy milk, so even considering the cost of ingredients, this machine quickly paid for itself.

PERFORMANCE
The process is very simple. 1. Rinse the soybeans. 2. Let them soak a few hours. 3. Put the soybeans in the machine with some water. 4. Plug in the machine and press a button. 5. After some noisy churning (about the same level as a vacuum cleaner), it will beep incessantly, so you have to unplug it. 6. Let it cool down for a while. 7. Pour the milk through a strainer into a container. 8. Clean the machine (it is better to do this sooner rather than later)--VERY easy. 9. This is optional, but I would recommend buying a couple of plastic pitchers. I make two or three batches a week, and it is good to have a closed container on hand for storing it in the refrigerator. The one that comes with the machine has no cover, and because there is only one, you would have to go without soymilk until the next batch is ready.

MILK TASTE
Honestly, I prefer the sweet taste of Vanilla Soy Silk to the soy milk that the machine produces. I feel more comfortable eating organic and controlling what goes into my body, though. I've gotten used to the flavor over time. I use Arrowhead Mills organic soybeans and put in a bit of vanilla extract to give it some sweetness.

TOFU
You can also make tofu with it. The process is not very difficult, but I did not do such a great job with the tofu, and it was a little more trouble than it was worth. Of course, this is the opinion of someone who doesn't mind missing a few meals because he is too lazy to cook sometimes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Machine itself is awesome, June 10, 2010
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
No complaints about the machine itself. It looks nice, compact enough to store in the cabinet, easy to use, and does a great job automating almost the entire process. The only hands on part is straining the milk once the machine is all done. My only complaint, having absolutely nothing to do with the machine, is that there is going to be a good amount of trial and error to figure out the recipes. My first try was with Almonds. i followed the directions in the book exactly and got cloudy flavorless nut water. The water i had used to soak the almonds in probably had more flavor than what i got out of the machine. I don't blame the machine for that though. I blame inexperience. So much of this is individual preference for taste, texture, and thickness, that there's no one size fits all recipe. Next time i'm going to try it with less water to make it thicker, and i read online that oats can be added to thicken it up and make it a little creamier. Probably try adding some sugar too. Just the same, the machine itself rocks. Good buy.

update. First couple of batches using Soy Beans had a very strong egg smell. It was really gross. Whether it was the reason or not, i shortened the soak time from 6 hours to about 2 1/2 and the smell completely disappeared.

I've been using this for about two months, making around a gallon of soymilk a week. It works great for that, though the one time I tried to make oat milk it didn't really function, so if you plan on using it for things like that you might want to read other reviews; my experience might have been due to user error. The machine is easy to clean and easy to use, with the only detriments being that it is a bit loud, ugly, and the "hey your soymilk is done" beep is incessant and sounds like a ticking timebomb. Still, those are minor gripes and the key point is that it works and doesn't require a lot of head-scratching to fire up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't Be Any Easier, May 16, 2010
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I am very pleased with the Soyapower Plus soy milk maker that I recently purchased. It shipped quickly and was well packaged without excessive use of packing materials.
The instruction manual is easily used and has a 'troubleshooting section' with suggestions to try to resolve most problems one encounters when using a new machine. It is very easy to load and assemble and run. Noise is often a considertion with these and this one is relatively quiet. A grinding process is bound to make a little noise after all.
Straining the milk is not to difficult but takes a bit of time to accomplish successfully.
Cleaning the machine can be a challenge the first couple of times but once you establish a routine it goes smoothly.
I would suggest that one does some 'homework' prior to purchasing this device.

1. Unless you don't mind paying the freight on shipped soybeans locate sources in your area prior to purchase.
2. Have or purchase a suitable storage container before you have need for it. It should be: a) fairly easy to fill and have a cap or seal, b) be completely washable, c) suitable to being sanitized to minimise spoilage of product.

Although I have yet to make anything other than soymilk with this machine it would work just as well for the other listed uses as it is very powerful and grinds very well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very satisfied with this machine, May 12, 2010
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
Having been a vegan for thirty five years, and having reared six children, our family has consumed a lot of soymilk over the years. Many years ago I tried making my own in a large stainless pot, and just like everyone says, the most time consuming part of the process is waiting for the milk to come to a boil, then being right there to keep it from almost immediately boiling up and over onto the stove. This was in the days before aseptic soymilk was readily available, and certainly before the local grocery store offered it fresh. I was soon a convert to convenience, and we went through many cases of soymilk, unable to easily recycle the packaging.
When a friend sent me a link to the Sanalinx soymilk maker site, I knew I had to try one out.
The box came quickly by UPS (so be sure to use your house address with Amazon, not a P.O. Box), and my package was in a sturdy outer cardboard box which protected the inner box.
I opened it up, looked at the manual and recipe book, washed the machine parts, and soaked the small package of enclosed soybeans the night before. In the morning I rinsed the beans, added water between the raised fill lines in the lower part of the machine, added the beans, clamped on the top, having attached the volcano filter (which has holes big enough for soybeans to pass through, and which goes around the four sharp blades that do the grinding), plugged the power cord into the machine, then into the wall, and chose the Soybean selection button. Immediately the machine set to work. First it was very quiet, heating up the water. I got to work around the kitchen with some chores I had to do. Suddenly there was a grinding noise coming from the machine, and I looked nervously over at it, wondering if it was self destructing. Then it was quiet again. Then it ground the beans. This happened a few times, and the sudden noise can startle you at first, but soon you get used to it. It is muffled and not too obnoxious. Before I knew it (in under twenty minutes)the machine blinked and beeped to tell me it was finished. So soon! I unplugged the machine from the wall, then from the unit, and I unclamped it, which is easy to do, the fittings being somewhat loose, though not in a bad way, to my thinking. I poured the soymilk easily into the strainer over the plastic jug, and sprayed off the hot grinding unit with my dish sprayer. I set the heating elements into a large stainless bowl in my sink and let it fill up with water (not above the point where you aren't supposed to get the machine wet). This helps in future cleanup. I sprayed out the bottom section. At this point, if I were making several batches in a row (each produces a liter and a half)I would begin the process again. Otherwise, if you are finished making soymilk for the day, it will take a few short minutes to use the included scrub brush and cleaning pad to fine tune the cleanliness of the stainless mechanisms and wipe out the stainless inside of the bottom section. This was not a difficult chore, and does not detract from my enjoyment of my machine.
I flavor the milk in the plastic jug (a sprinkle of salt and some sweetener and vanilla helps my children like it better, though none of this is necessary) before pouring it into a clean glass jar. It is still hot at this point, so I let it sit out by the refrigerator to cool somewhat before refrigerating. If I were making just the liter and a half per morning (all one person or a small family would need), my work, including cleanup, would be done in half an hour, including a lot of free time to get some chores done. It is recommended you stick around while the machine is working, just in case. But there is lots to be done around the kitchen while it does all the hard work of making soymilk for you.
I am just amazed that I can get such good tasting soymilk in such quantities so easily. I am thrilled to no longer contribute packaging waste to the earth. I spent $120 on the machine and $55 on 50 pounds of soybeans which look like they will last me a very long time. We were spending at least $80 a month on soymilk, before. The machine will have paid for itself, the beans, and any flavorings in less than three months, and from then on the only cost will be my time and electricity usage (still to be determined), until I have to buy more soybeans in about a year. I got the machine with the two year guarantee. If it ever breaks, I am sure I will either get it fixed by Sanalinx, or purchase another, because I am very satisfied.
This is like a new hobby for me. I am enjoying trying out different bean/grain combinations. It will also make nut milk or hemp milk. I imagine it would make sesame and sunflower milk, too. This morning I will try the soy/quinoa one I made yesterday. If you hit on one nobody much likes (my first batch wasn't as popular), it is great to have a bunch to make pudding or a smoothie. Nobody is complaining, then! It has only been a week, and already my children have adjusted to this new kind of soymilk. They give me pointers on which kind they prefer, so I keep adjusting the next batch, as to mixtures I try out. I have tried to add calcium to the milk (being sure it is not calcium sulfate, which would make it turn into curds), but so far that hasn't been as successful for me. I need to work on that some more.
Be sure to try your soymilk cold the first time you let your family taste test it. The flavor is quite bland, then. When it is hot, you might think it will end up tasting beany--but it doesn't when it's cool.
Oh, and the whole family liked the soysage I made with the okara. It is good with spaghetti or in the morning. The recipe is in The Farm cookbook. I cooked it in a big handle-less pan in 5 cups of water in my large pressure cooker for half an hour, then scooped out balls/patties of it to fry up on both sides. It makes a yummy snack or sandwich filling, also.
Tofu is easy to make using the soymilk maker, but you have to have the time to run four batches before you can get enough to make a big block. It tastes very fresh, but I am not sure this will end up being my preferred use of the machine. Just having the soymilk is good enough for me.

I use this to make hemp milk and am really pleased with the results. I know exactly what is in my milk and it is quick and easy to make. I will be saving a bundle on buying Hemp milk and can make it up as needed and not worry about whether it will be in stock at the store. Clean up is extremely easy. The only con on this machine would be the color. None of my other white appliances have this greenish tint to them but I can live with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars We call this our HEMP-plus milk machine!, February 22, 2010
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
Twenty years ago, we gave up dairy (AKA TCBMM- the country's best mucus maker) and switched over to "white gold" - soymilk - but it stung that the boxed quarts were the same price as a whole gallon jug of the cow's milk we left behind. Alas, soon soy has its own dark side - high TSH, enzyme inhibitors resulting in chronic amino acid and protein deficiencies, and estrogenic effects. Here we were, drinking soy milk and also eating all sorts of soy isolates - and health issues made us realize we humans are the only animal choosing to eat soy. Duh!

So we moved away from the claws of ADM into the arms of a much-maligned, but increasingly bright star, hemp seed. (According to [...], hemp seed is an amazing powerhouse of protein, similar to that of human blood, has all the necessary amino acids, "and the 3:1 ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids our bodies need to be healthy. Hemp seeds also contain sufficient quantities of zinc, iron, and magnesium, three of the most common metals/minerals implicated in mineral deficiency diseases.")

Yes! Children of the 60's, we got hooked on hemp (THC free!) and enjoyed the seeds on salads, in smoothies, and over entrees. But we missed milk - and hemp milk, while tasty, cost twice as much as soy. I tried making hemp milk in a blender and with a nutmilk bag, but like soymilk, produced not so great milk for the effort - and cost - required. And then I chanced upon an an article describing the advances - and dropping prices - of alter-milk-making machines, such as the "Soyapower Plus" which included in its name its doubling as a "rice milk maker, nut milk maker". The price seemed fair - it promised six cups of milk from only half a cup of nuts or seeds. Now, every two days, I make at least one batch of hemp/oat milk from 1/2 cup Nutiva organic seed, also from Amazon, 1/4 cup OG rolled oats and 6 cups filtered H20. I add a tad of agave or rice syrup, a dash of salt, and a dribble of vanilla to create a rich creamy beverage. That adds up to $1 a quart compared to a retail of four bucks! Similar value is had from almond/walnut milk- about 50 cents/quart and rice milk is a steal at about 30 cents a quart. Here I am getting half again as much milk for half the price at the co-op!

Of course, they had me when it said SEVENTEEN minutes to "brew" a batch - and that part is true - I stopwatch-timed it! Cleanup is a cinch --- trust me, this is NOT your mother's milk making ritual - you just wash the steel pitcher and the mechanism and the strainer and the bowl --- well, okay it is work, but it is still quicker than driving to the store to BUY yet another box you then have to reuse or recycle.

So, yeah, if you're sitting on the fence about getting one of these machines, give it up - espesh if YOUR DBH also wants to catch up from all those years of deprivation of "who drank all the ___ milk?" We figure this machine will pay for itself in THREE TO FOUR months - If you make one batch just ten times a month (a total of 15 quarts), you will have "spent" about $7 to $10 for what would have cost you $30 to $40 at the store. Do the math, and then do the Amazon Prime shuffle.

This is a great soy milk maker. It is very heavy, durable, and easy to use. I love that I can make my own milk and not have to go to the store for it. My youngest daughter loves the milk warm right after I make it. The milk smells "beany" when it is warm but tastes really good. I am still working out my "perfect recipe" but all that I have tried have been good. The Milk comes out as a pretty off-white color. I don't feel like I need to strain the milk anymore than I do already with the strainer it came with. It is really easy to clean if you clean it right away, otherwise it takes a little more scrubbing, but it is still not all that hard to clean. I recomend this soy milk maker to whoever wants an economic, healthy alternative to store bought milk/soymilk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product, Excellent Soy Milk (and Tofu!) Pays for Itself Fast, February 9, 2010
By 
Maud (St. Louis, MO) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
When I made my own tofu 25 or 30 years ago, it was a time consuming process involving stock pots and a commercial blender which resulted in a beany soy milk that made a beany tofu. This soy milk machine is my first automatic machine; I got it so that I could conveniently make organic soy milk and tofu from locally sourced soy beans. This machine is so easy to use and clean that I use it often.

The Soyapower Plus soy milk maker makes absolutely delicious soy milk, which in turn allows you to make absolutely delicious home made tofu. In the City of St. Louis we have wonderful tap water that doesn't need to be filtered, and as a result my soy milk tastes better than store-bought (although of course it is not thickened or sweetened.) I purchased the machine from the manufacturer's site in order to take advantage of the sample Laura non-GMO soy beans and the ability to purchase nigari and gypsum coagulants. In the first two months I have made both soy milk and tofu.

This machine makes soy milk in about 20 minutes, and (unlike my juicer) clean-up takes about two minutes. As other reviewers have noted, there is no on/off switch so it beeps annoyingly until you come to unplug it. It seems structurally sturdy although the latches seem flimsy and I wonder how they will hold up. Other than the Apple II color, these are the only flaws in an otherwise wonderful product.

The sound insulation of this soy milk maker really quiets the process. The initial sound is the water coming to a boil very rapidly. After several grinding cycles, it simmers the pulverized beans. The controls turn the blender on and off several times during the automatic cycle, so it's only loud occasionally. My cats don't even leave the kitchen.

I have so far made one batch of tofu, which requires two batches of soy milk, coagulated with nigari. This tofu was so different from the home made tofu I used to make so long ago! To use an analogy, if the tofu I used to make was full grain bread and today's silken grocery store tofu is white bread, the tofu made with the soy milk from the Soyapower Plus is artisan bread. The texture is light and fluffy but not silken, and the flavor is rich without being beany. It's delicious warm or cold.

So, as far as this automatic soy milk maker goes, it's the beginning of a beautiful friendship. At two batches per week, I figure it will pay for itself in less than six months.

Each batch of soy milk only requires 100 grams of soy beans, so you will get four and a half batches of soy milk from a pound (about 450 grams) of soy beans. If you pay a dollar sixty-nine for a pound of organic soy beans, each one point five liter batch will cost thirty-eight cents plus the cost of electricity, or about fifty cents per half gallon. Silk soy milk costs about four dollars for a half gallon, so in round numbers you save about three and a half dollars per half gallon of soy milk by making your own with the Soyapower Plus. That means this soy milk maker will pay for itself after about forty-five batches. If you make two batches per week, that means it pays for itself in less than six months...and that's not even factoring in the savings if you decide to make your own tofu.

This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I wanted soy milk maker for a long time. My daughter likes to drink it. We bought Silk brand from Costco. It's fine. But I don't like the sweet taste of Silk brand. My mom used to make it from scratch. After search, especially after reading reviews in Amazon, I decided to buy this model based on Farrier Mom's review since I wanted the machine not just makes soy milk, I wanted it can make all different nut milks too. Before I got it, my friends warned me about machine quality. She told me she bought one a few years ago. It violated all US electronic standard. But, this one is totally different. It is very well constructed and manufacture did pay attention to little thing. It is very quiet (much quiet than my Blendtec Total Blender). I got it last Wed, arrived earlier than estimated time in my invoice. So far I made 3 batches, two for soy bean, one for almond. They came out great. I love the original soy milk taste, no sugar, no any other ingredients other than water and soy bean. I like to drink warm. My daughter like to drink cold. So far we are very happy with this machine.

I will try mix grains, nut next time. I bought a set of glass wares from Costco to store the leftover. One batch, with water between two line in the container, can last for about 2 days.

The package came with plastic pitcher, brush and strainer. Washing is not too difficult. My mother in law and sister in law came yesterday. They tasted my home made soy milk. They love it. I planned to order one for each of them for their birthday gift.

There is only one little thing confused me. In the instruction, it said add water in between two lines in the container. I expected these two lines are far distance apart. But it only has 0.5 inch apart. There is no picture in the instruction brochure showing the water lines and there is no words showing right next to the lines inside container. I just had to leap on my faith - try and error and see how it works. Thank God, it seemed work fine so far. I would suggest that manufacturer to make this more clear, add a picture in brochure, it will take out the confusion. Also, I would like to know what is the reason to add water in between two line. I went thru the recipes came with the package, nowhere mentioned that we need to use top line or lower line for water measurement. If so, I am just wondering why not just print one line there.

Anyway, this is still a very good machine. I highly recommend to people who want to have home made soy milks or any nut milks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nut Milks?, January 29, 2010
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
This soy milk maker makes great soy milk, and I've tried some of the beans and grain combos/milks, but I chose this product because you could make nut milks with it, however, the choices for the cycles are only:
soy+ (soy and other ingredients)
soybeans (only)
beans+ (mostly beans)
rice+ (mostly grains)

nothing about nuts in the instructions or on the machine. The instructions do say however, "It's okay to try", a translation-challenged comment that says just try a cycle with different ingredients, but I wonder if anyone has a suggestion about which cycle to try to make almond milk or has had success in making a nut milk?

5.0 out of 5 stars Not very aesthetically pleasing but works okay., January 28, 2010
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
I was divided on which soymilk maker to buy as nobody I knew had one and none are available locally, so I had no way to get personal opinions or to examine any. Finally I found someone who has the Joyoung which is the same as this, but with the start buttons in Chinese and English both, and decided to get the same model with the English only - the Soyapower Plus.
Although nobody else seems to care much about this I think they would sell more if they took a tip from makers of rice steamers and beautified their product up a bit. Say by making it in solid white or in white with pink pastel flowers cascading down the front and by making the button strip black with white lettering maybe. Drop the teacup on the lid and replace it with a bunch of flowers. As it is, no woman would want to display it on their counter. It is definitely a man's design. I myself bought it in spite of its ugliness.
Besides that, it works perfectly. It is very quiet and sounds like a dishwasher when it is grinding the beans, otherwise it is silent. When it is finished, it makes a very soft beeping sound. It was at the most warm to the touch on the outside. It also cleaned up very quickly and easily with just a wet dishcloth.
At first the milk it made was bitter, but I bought new beans and this time it came out perfectly. I sweetened it with agave nectar, which both costs and tastes the same as honey but which is easier to stir into cold drinks, and added a capful of vanilla extract. The hardest part about making the milk was rubbing the transparent skins off the soaked soybeans before I put them in the machine. (Doing this is supposed to make the milk sweeter.)
The recipe calls for one half cup standard American dry measure of dry beans (the enclosed cup that comes with it is one half cup standard American dry measure), making it very economical.
One thing is that the plastic pitcher they give with it has no lid so you might want to buy something to store the finished milk in.
All in all, I am very glad I bought the machine.

I really like this machine. I have never owned a Soy Milk Machine before. You just put in all your ingredients (after they have soaked) and the machine does the rest. You do have to strain the milk, but that is easy. They give you the strainer to do this. I think this is a very good machine.

This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
We shopped soymilk makers for almost a year before deciding on this machine. We are so glad we did. It makes soymilk wonderfully that tastes great. It is EASY to clean. It is very economical. It is exceptionally efficient and versatile. We wanted to find a soymilk maker that could be used with almonds, cashews, garbanzo beans, mung beans, rice and more. We found that with this machine. The beautiful thing is it does it for you. Just push one button and you have milk in about 15 min. Two suggestions: One, by a Vita Mix to go with it. We make the milk, pour it directly into our Vita Mix and then mix whatever fruit or sweetener we want to use. Two, clean the machine right after use. That suggestion is common sense if you use anything stainless steel to cook with- otherwise things stick rather well to it.

This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
Worked ok as promised. Made a batch of soymilk. Soaked soybeans for 7-8 hrs. Added water, then soaked beans. Inserted power head. Plugged in. Touched soymilk button. Machine started up. Made a little noise when the auger turned on. After about 20 min., had over a liter of soymilk. (from about 1 c. of dry beans). After waiting a few minutes for the machine to cool, I poured the cooked mixture into the strainer and the handy provided pitcher. There was quite a bit of the mash, but you just let it drain awhile, and it works out fine. I haven't tried cooking with the mash...has the consistency of mush.(supposed to make a good "cheesecake" out of the stuff). After the milk cooled, I tried it. It tasted great, probably 4--5 times as thick as some unsweetened commercial stuff I've had (at less than 1/4 the price). Cleanup takes awhile..and there is a smell similar to scalded milk, but since you only need to make a batch every few days, it really isn't too much of a problem. It makes a great "creamer" for coffee, too.

Once I figured out to rinse off the nasty soak water (8 hr+soak time), the taste was fine. The more thoroughly that you rinse the soaked beans, the better. Before I started doing that, it tasted like unseasoned navy-bean soup. I got the idea from 'The Joy of Cooking', where they recommend sometimes discarding soak water for soups.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely the BEST Soy Milk maker!, October 17, 2009
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
A student of health and nutrition for 30 years, as well as mom to 5 children, I have used and posted reviews of all three soy milk makers from Sanlinx, including this latest SoyaPower Plus. I also review and compare other similar models for a national outlet.

The new SoyaPower Plus not only kept all the great features of the SoyaPower, but also improved upon it! ...

The Tornado Grinding System (tm) which transforms the SoyaPower Plus into a powerhouse machine, with no filter to clean.

The features that I rated so highly on the SoyaPower are included in the SoyaPower Plus; features such as outer insulation covering that surrounds the stainless interior of the machine which makes the machine cooler to touch and also muffles the machine's noise. I also really like the metal latches that secure the machine head to the body for added assurance. The SoyaPower Plus also retained the automatic shutoff switch as an added security measure. As a mom with children at home, I appreciate these extra features for our safety.

The features that I rated so highly on the SoyaPower are included in the SoyaPower Plus; features such as outer insulation covering that surrounds the stainless interior of the machine which makes the machine cooler to touch and also muffles the machine's noise. I also really like the metal latches that secure the machine head to the body for added assurance. The SoyaPower Plus also retained the automatic shutoff switch as an added security measure. As a mom with children at home, I appreciate these extra features for our safety.

The new SoyaPower Plus not only kept all the great features of the SoyaPower, but improved upon it! Programmable cycle features are expanded in the SoyaPower Plus, making the machine more versatile. The SoyaPower Plus boasts the most pre-programmed operations (4 separate one-touch operations) for a wide variety of combinations or beans, grains, nuts, seeds or legumes.

The four pre-programmed one-touch operations for the SoyaPower Plus are:

* Beans + (Any beans other than soy beans)
* Soy Beans (For excellent soy milk)
* Soy + (For combinations using soy beans and other ingredients, such as soy beans and grains)
* Rice + (For making soups using grains such as rice, or millet)

How to use the SoyaPower Plus

1. Place pure water into the stainless SoyaPower Plus container, between the two marks for minimum and maximum water.
2. Place soaked and drained beans, or rinsed grains directly into the container, into the water.
3. Attach the Tornado Grinding SystemTM to the machine head.
4. Place the machine head into place and secure the latches.
5. Plug the SoyaPower Plus power cord into the wall socket.
6. Choose the correct cycle and press the button to start the cycle.
7. When the cycle is finished, you'll hear a beep and the cycle is finished!
8. If desired, strain the liquid through the strainer that is provided with the SoyaPower Plus.
9. Refer to the User Manual for the simple cleanup directions.

5.0 out of 5 stars My 2 cents on top of what has been already said, July 16, 2009
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
This is the first time I'm using a soy milk machine. My friend recommended the SoyaJoy but when they came out with this I wanted to try it. I bought it directly from them so whatever I describe here is whatever came in the box from them. The first time I made the soy milk from the Laura beans sample they sent with the package and it smelled beany and strong. The instructions actually warned that it may have a metallic smell and to throw away the first batch if that happened. Well, I've been making soy milk since then and the smell/flavor is now milder. So I don't think it's the Laura beans, I think it was just the first batch. I experimented with different beans, rice and grains and had fun with the results. I do soak them first before I use them.
At first, I added 1/4 tsp salt and 1 TBSP of sugar (they recommend 3 TSBP of brown rice syrup) but now we drink it plain.
It comes with a wire mesh strainer but I also strain it a second time with cheesecloth because it is a little grainy to me. I don't use the plastic container it comes with for the straining because I wasn't sure about pouring hot liquid into a plastic container. I strain it straight into my own glass pitcher (for hot beverages).
Clean up is indeed easy, like cleaning a blender. If I leave it out too long though before washing it, it would take a little more muscle to scrub it, but so would anything that was left to dry out and cake up.
I buy my soy beans from a local organic store at around $1.75/pound. I think that means it costs me about 30-50 cents to make a batch comparable to a carton of soy milk that costs $2+ at the store. It makes less than 6 cups I would say. Maybe I'm not adding enough water, but usually I get more like 5 cups.
I have been able to use the okara (left over "pulp") from the soy beans in soups/stews and pasta sauces. My family thinks I've been adding cheese to the sauce! I use it like ricotta/parmesean cheese in some recipes and also make okara burgers. Nothing has gone to waste. I freeze whatever I don't use. Honestly, I didn't like using it in "cheesecake" recipes. I still prefer using tofu for that. But it has been fun overall using the okara for more savory recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars If a Woman Can Love a Machine, June 5, 2009
This review is from: Soyapower Plus soy milk maker, rice milk maker, nut milk maker, and soup maker, largest capacity, with 2-year warranty
If a woman can love a machine, I love my SoyaPower Plus Soymilk Maker. I had been buying commercial organic soymilk for years, always running out, always feeling guilty for throwing all those cartons in the trash. So I decided to investigate buying a maker. Wendy Wang was very helpful in answering all my questions via email. I knew what to expect when my machine arrived and I was already comfortable with it.

The instructions were easy to follow and it's so easy to use with very few steps. In about 15 minutes it's ready and the clean-up is also easy. It's quiet, too, and I like that it is stainless steel.

I still am amazed how less than a cup of soybeans can produce such a flavorful, rich, and smooth drink. While it's still hot I add about 2T. of honey, 1/2t. sea salt, and 1/4 t. of almond extract. I like the fresh taste, hot or cold.

My husband makes fruit smoothies with soymilk for breakfast and I drink 8oz every afternoon at work to ward off hunger till dinnertime. Also I have been making dog biscuits with the okara by adding flour, egg, and peanut butter, a little olive oil. They like them and it sure saves money and packaging.

I don't want to do the math, but I know my SoyPower will pay for itself before long. The recession has certainly stimulated me.

I am quite happy with the soymilk maker (SoyaPower Plus).  I use it mostly for cooking since my older children do not like the beany taste of pure soy milk.  I guess they are spoiled by the comercial brands.  When my husband, baby, and myself drink it, I mix one batch of soy, one batch of rice/oat (1/4 cp rice w/ 1Tbs oats) and add a scant 1/4 cp sugar.
Adding the Okara to my usual scratch brownie recipe makes the BEST light, fluffy brownies ever.

Dear Wendy,
     I absolutely love my SoyaPower Plus soymilk maker. My favorite recipe so far is to add a tablespoon of barley to the soaking soybeans. I am so thankful that I found out about you guys. I started making soymilk 30 years ago with recipes where  you would literally use a pillow case like thing to "wring" the milk out and separate it from the okara. Of course; when the commercial milks came on the market, I abandoned my pillow case wringing. The primary reason I wanted to make my own is the use of all those unrecyclable containers that hold a liter of soymilk. The container waste and the cost added up to my decision to look for a better way. I found it with the SoyaPower Plus. Thank you! Thank you!

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 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!

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.

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 truly love my SoyaJoy!  I've experimented until I have a flavor I really like.  And it's so much less expensive that store-bought soy milk. 
 
Thanks for making such a fine product available!

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.
Thanks!

Hi Wendy,

I had to let you know that I used my SoyaJoy this morning for the first time and it is fantastic!  I had been making soy milk by hand Ė lots of work for very little milk Ė so the ease of the SoyaJoy was marvelous.  I can now have soy milk without sugar and additives.

Hi, I got a SoyaPower soymilk maker for $119. It comes with a 12-page recipe book. I like the soy-oat milk I made (I have not tried other recipes). It tastes great, as good as the packaged soymilk I have been drinking (I had expected to have to get to used to it). The machine is so easy to use! I am quite amazed at how this whole thing is automated. I am glad I bought the SoyaPower though it is more expensive. Thanks for recommending the machine.

Hello Wendy,

I last wrote you on June 2, 2002, to tell you how much I liked the newer model of your SoyaJoy Soymilk Maker, even though the previous one was a great machine as well. At that time I told you I had used the new unit 30 times.

Since then I have used it 336 additional times and it has operated flawlessly every time.

So I want to thank you for selling such fine products. And over the years I have always appreciated the honest and dependable manner in which you conduct your business. I am sure your many fine customers in the United States, and around the World, have also found that they can deal with you in complete confidence as well.

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).

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!!

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.

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

from beans!  I am very impressed with the Soyajoy.

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 (1Ĺ 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,

It will be three years next month since we bought our Soymilk Maker from you, and we have used it just about 400 times since the day it was delivered. And we wanted you to know that it has worked perfect each and every time!

You can be proud to sell a product of that quality and dependability. And as we said previously, it is a pleasure to do business with you folks, and, as always, we appreciate your honesty.

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
distributor within Australia, and what this would involve.

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.
best wishes,

Subject: Unbelievable

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.

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.

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

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?

If there is one kitchen machine in my home that gets used more than almost any other it is my

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

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

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.

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

Subject: Hello from Blair, NE

Approximately a year ago, I ordered the SoyaJoyII Automatic Soymilk Maker and absolutely love it!  I also ordered the Laura Beans from Jonathan Chambers.  That is how I got your names in case you are wondering.

For the past 7 years, I have been eating vegetarian/vegan foods and teaching others (through adult education classes) how to cook with soy.  Also, I have been working a day job and trying to coordinate everything. After much thought and consideration, I have decided to resign my day time job and commit to following my dream as a nutritional chef. 

Because I am simply in love with this (I call it my new toy), I share with everyone who will listen how much I enjoy the soy milk from this machine.  ........

Hi,
I have used my (SoyaJoy) soy milk maker for about two months now and just love it! The Laura bean is by far the tastiest of the beans I have tried. Have you ever had a nutritional analysis done on the homemade soymilk? I would love to add this item to my Nutribase diet software. Thanks for your time.

I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know I love my (SoyaJoy) soy milk maker, now that I have perfected the recipe! My first batch was TERRIBLE (Sanlinx suggests not to use the first batch, editor). I had to throw it away. The second batch was better, using regular sugar & salt; the third batch was PERFECT! Instead of sugar, I put 2 tablespoons of brown rice syrup and 1/8 teaspoon of sea salt per batch, and in all honesty, it tastes better than store bought. Yay!

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.

The milk is great and so easy to make. The machine is so easy clean. The soymilk maker got here yesterday and I have already made six batches. The whole family loves it. My two year old girl has had four glasses already today. When my nine month old son hears the machine going he crawls as fast as he can into the kitchen because he wants a bowl of okara. My husband took the okara and added spices and oatmeal etc.. and made burgers. They were really good. Even the cat drinks the soymilk.

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?

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,

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!
