1. IntSoy has selected the SoyaJoy
Soy Milk Maker as the best of all soy milk machines tested.
|Dr. Karl E. Weingartner, Senior
Food Scientist &
Director of IntSoy.
We are most pleased to announce that IntSoy
(International Soybean Program) at the University of Illinois has
conducted vigorous testing of the SoyaJoy Soymilk Maker. Here is Dr.
IntSoy recently tested three
different brands of soy milk makers. Based on the results of these
tests the machine we recommend is the SoyaJoy Soymilk Maker from
Sanlinx Inc.. The machine was tested using both hot water and cold
water for making soy milk from soaked soybean according to the
supplied user manual. It takes us about 15 minutes to make soy milk
from cold tap water, and 12 minutes with hot water. We noted that
the taste of the milk is better when the hot water is used. The
instructions are easy to follow. The machine is very suitable for
home use and is among the best we have tested. The stainless-steel
container is also a plus. You can find more information by visiting

4. The SoyaJoy
earned a great editorial review from the most popular
vegetarian Web site -- vegsource.com.
"SoyaJoy gets VegSource's highest rating!
Jeff and Sabrina have been having a ball with their SoyaJoy Soymilk
Maker, coming up with a variety of different flavors and
consistencies. You can't go wrong with a SoyaJoy -- we love it!
Don't be fooled by imitations and Johnny-come-lately ripoffs --
SoyaJoy is the original, the granddaddy that started it all! The
quality of construction, the safety and the power of the machine are
the best out there. It's made of the finest materials available -- a
surgical stainless steel cooking pot with smooth edges all around --
and it's built for safety and ease of use. It's not only the best,
it also happens to be the most reasonably priced! Compared to
SoyaJoy, other soymilk makers look like toys! ... "
Jeff recently tested the
and here is what he has to say:
You've taken a great soymilk maker and made it even
better! It's so easy to use and clean up, and the soymilk it
produces is a big hit with the whole family. Thanks for continuing
to be a leader in spreading soy to the world!
Feel free to use that as an endorsement on your site, should you

Author's Product Rating
|Ease of Use:
As always, before I purchase a product I did a ton of research
and reading about soymilk makers.
Our primary concern was stainless steel touching the milk only,
easy cleaning, and fast convenient usage. Of course, taste had
to be a big part too.
What I kept coming back to was the SOYAJOY SOYMILK MAKER by
SANLINX. The reviews I read about it were glowing and positive
and very numerous. The price was also right- $99 at Christmas
So after debating, emailing the company and discussing, I sent
for the unit. Wow, were we shocked.
Pros: easy, fast, saves lots of money, small footprint
Cons: takes a while to get used to fresh flavor
The Bottom Line
In all of the years I spent laboring over soy milk, it is truly
awesome that this the SOYAJOY does the job in 1/20 of the
time-truly a miracle!!!!!
This is my most important kitchen helper. I guard it with my
life. No one is allowed to touch it. I LOVE this thing.
The milk that comes out of it is fresh- very clean tasting and
you can make it any way you want it to be. We just drink it
straight now with a little honey added if we remember while it
is hot. The milk will keep from 1-2 weeks in sealed glass
depending on the weather and the batch.
Do you like a certain store bought soymilk? Keep a box with
ingredients and try to copy it. Quite frankly, once you get used
to the fresh taste of the soymilk made with this machine, you
will never go back to that other stuff again.
We occasionally will open a box of milk left from a while ago in
emergencies, and we can all taste the other stuff in it
(including the aluminum) and it is really gross. We used to LOVE
HAVE I SAVED MONEY?
Have I saved MONEY? HAVE I SAVED MONEY? BOY, HAVE I SAVED MONEY!
I have to tell you, folks, this soy milk maker has saved us a
LOT of money. At about $20 a week for soymilk, we can probably
get a full gallon of soymilk for about, let's say $.50 worth of
So, take $19.50 and multiply that out to be approx. 32 weeks,
and we have saved approx. $624 in the 8 months that we have been
using this machine.
DO I ACTUALLY LIKE IT?
All of the family drinks it, and all of us like it, including
me. I do not have the problems with drinking it that I used to
have with our other method of making the milk. We are using the
exact same bag of beans.
Everyone has their own way of fixing this milk. My son loves to
make Indian Lassis with it (rosewater milkshake in essence). My
daughter loves to mix it with anything at all because she loves
to mix things. My husband loves to make carob shakes from it and
just blending it gets a beautiful foam on top just like those
foamy drinks people pay a ton for. I like it with just a little
honey and vanilla if it is just to drink.

6. Another Rave review from
Once again, we only ran across and read this review almost
one year after it had been posted. Before I order something
online, I always check out reviews on Epinions.com. Over the
years, I have found that Epinions.com publishes the most
detailed, useful, and trustworthy reviews.

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.
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
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.

8. Vickilynn Haycraft rated SoyaJoy The Best in a
head-to-head test in 2001. After three years, she proudly recommends
the SoyaJoy SJ-5 in her latest review of all major soy milk makers
on the market.
|Vickilynn Haycraft is a wife
and mother of five children. Vickilynn's articles, columns,
poetry, book and product reviews have been distributed
worldwide. She has been published in magazines, such as
Teachers of Good Things, Homemaker's Forum, An Encouraging
Word, Gentle Spirit, Above Rubies, Healthy Foods e-zine,
Dollar Stretcher, Coming Home, Naturally Healthy Living
magazine and Naturally Healthy Home Study Course.
"I greatly prefer the SoyaJoy,"
wrote Vickilynn in her 2001 review. "I finally have been able to
make a good-tasting milk alternative that my family enjoys without
complaint. Making these beverages at home has saved us about $500.00
per year. The automatic soymilk maker paid for itself in about 3
months, and the best news is that the process of making non-dairy
milk using a machine is easy, quick and completely automatic (thus
saving my precious time for more important tasks!)."

Vickilynn reviewed the SoyaJoy SJ-5
again in November 2004, three years after her first review, and
confirmed that the SoyaJoy is still the best: "I now recommend the
SoyaJoy SJ-5 as an excellent, well-made machine that consistently
delivers high-quality non-dairy beverages from home."

Some readers have asked us what the difference is
between SoyaJoy and SoyQuick. SoyQuick is the private brand name of
a Canadian distributor of the same machine; it is not an authorized
US distributor. Whereas the SoyaJoy uses a non-removable safety
warning label, the safety warning is printed on the SoyQuick machine
head. If you order SoyQuick online, it may be shipped to you from
