This review is from: Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker and Soup Maker - with All Stainless Steel Inside - New 2013 Model Introduction Sale
I hemmed and hawed about purchasing a soy milk maker. Now I wish I had done it long ago. I love the fresh soy milk. It is way better than store bought. No extra ingredients, and I am sure to use non GMO beans. This also makes great rice and almond milk. If you are hesitant.....just do it. I live in Bush Alaska, and ordering soybeans is so much cheaper than shipping the milks...if one can get a company to ship to Alaska. Now I have great milk, and no more shipping challenges. The unit cleans up very easily, and it only takes 1/2 cup of beans to make over a liter of milk!

Because I make soymilk for my mother as well as my little family, I know I am going to see this payoff very quickly! It makes the process much more smoothly. I wish though, that the blade section was detachable for much easier cleaning. But overall, it is a great product and I usually make two batches everyday between both households and I trust this more than storebought since mom is diabetic-so the less junk/chemicals the more better for her and my children. The kids have no problem at all using soymilk for their cereal instead of regular dairy milk. So yes, I am very satisfied with my purchase.

I use it twice to three times a week.
If you consume soy or almond milk as much as I do, it's worth making your own.
Also, you can control what goes in it which is fantastic!
Super easy to make different types of milk and easy to clean.

Just finished making my 3rd "batch" of soymilk and am still impressed at how easy and fast it is! The unit cleans up very nicely, especially when using the scrubbing pad that's included. It's nice knowing that as long as I have some dry soybeans on hand, I'll never run out of milk! I only wish they included recipes for the "okara" or soybean pulp that's left over from the milk.

This review is from: Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker and Soup Maker - with All Stainless Steel Inside - New 2013 Model Introduction Sale
This little machine is a wonder! It quickly and easily makes any kind of non-dairy milk with minimal mess and clean up. I've used it primarily for almond milk and soy milk and tofu. I'm still trying to figure out what to do with the pulp left over from almond milk, which I make every 2-3 days for 3 people. The milk is absolutely delicious as is.

I've been making pancakes from the milk and pulp as follows: 1/2 cup almond milk, 1/2 cup almond pulp, 1 egg, 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1/2 cup flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon sugar or more to taste, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. May need to add more flour for correct consistency. Try one small pancake first. I've also added applesauce and cinnamon to the batter.

I've tried some of the other recipes from the booklet, but I've only really scratched the surface of the possibilities for this machine. Their website has many more links to recipes too. It is well-made and has worked without a hitch for the past 2 months that I've had it and I probably use it every couple of days. I've recommended it to my friends.

This review is from: Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker and Soup Maker - with All Stainless Steel Inside - New 2013 Model Introduction Sale
Just got this for my birthday and i'm loving it! Have made soy milk and soy-green bean milk. Successful for all batches! I like my soy milk really thick so I tripled the amount of soaked beans, use max amount of liquid, and run the "soaked beans" function twice and let the machine keep warm twice to get as much flavor out of the beans. This made it super delicious!
Not one for wasting good beans, after straining the okara, i dumped ithe okara in a pot and added more water to get more soy milk. If i don't have time to make more milk, i make a paste out of the okara+mashed green beans and pandan essence for bun fillings with a sweet dough recipe.
Washing wasn't a hassle at all - just run hot water over the blades and then wipe off with a sponge. Quick and easy. The min and max marking on the plastic beaker is somewhat tough to discern.
Overall, i am loving it!

And I have been patting myself on the back ever since. This machine does Hemp Milk really well! It is totally idiot proof. The stainless steel is easy to scrub. With no filter, cleaning is less than 2 minutes. I make back to back batches as I hate cleaning. Thats around 3 liters, after the okara is separated. The initial cost of this unit is high, but the health benefits from raw foods easily outweigh the cost. Over time, you can even save money. If you don't tell anyone you have the machine, you can get serious culinary street cred with your beverages;)

"This is a excellent product. I have traveled to China frequently for 20 years and I love fresh soy milk as well as the porridge (sometimes made of rice or millet) there! Such healthy eating! I also use it to make all of my purple barley products! I practice Chinese medicine in the US and diet is a huge part of staying healthy! This soy milk maker is well made and works great! I use it on the average of 3 times a week. It is stainless steel, easy to clean, and has clear instructions with recipes. And the customer service is prompt and great if you need it. The best I found on the market!"

This machine could be much better if they have it insulated and use better quality material. If you are not careful like I am, you can get severely injured, in this case burned. I got a big burn on my right arm the second day I got this. I had no choice but to return it. Another problem is that the socket where the power connects is not very well sealed. You run the risk of electric shock if you get water in it accidentally.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well-designed soymilk maker, September 25, 2013
By
InReno (Reno, NV USA) - See all my reviews
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker and Soup Maker - with All Stainless Steel Inside - New 2013 Model Introduction Sale
My first Soyajoy G4 didn't work; kudos to Amazon for a painless return process. The second works fine: it's easy to use and cleanup is simple; the design and stainless-steel interior make for quick and efficient washing. My one design complaint is with the included fine-mesh strainer for straining the soymilk into the included plastic pitcher. The strainer isn't deep enough to pour a whole recipe of soymilk into it and then let it strain while I clean the soymilk maker. Instead I have to pour a little at a time while stirring the soymilk in the strainer, and even so, I tend to overflow it and get soymilk and sediment down the sides of the pitcher and on the counter. I wish the strainer were deeper.

My other issue seems to be that (so far) I don't seem to like homemade soymilk very much. I would suggest folks that haven't had homemade soymilk try making a batch without a machine first: this will let them know how much trouble it is to make soymilk without a machine (a big selling point for the machine!) AND let them see if they actually like the resulting homemade soymilk. Homemade soymilk is not as finely-ground as the commercial product, and (of course) it doesn't contain stabilizers. So it's basically ground, cooked, soybeans in a somewhat watery liquid. If one has just shaken the soymilk container, the particles will be briefly in suspension, and then they start to settle. I usually drink most of my soymilk in coffee, and so that means the first 3/4ths of my cup of coffee is somewhat watery, and the last quarter cup I can chew -- sort of like coffee-flavored hot cereal. Homemade soymilk is what it is; my expectations for a creamy product were unreasonable. I've tried adding rice and oats to the recipe; this just seems to add to the sediment load rather than adding body. I will keep experimenting.

Update: adding xanthan gum helps keep the sediment in suspension, and adds a 'fuller' mouthfeel. While I still think commercial soymilk tastes different (and, sadly, to me, better) than homemade soymilk, the xanthan gum goes a long way towards making the soymilk more acceptable in coffee because it stays mixed.
The tricky part is getting the xanthan gum evenly dissolved in the soymilk, even using a blender.

Update 2: I purchased a nut-milk bag, and this works to filter out the last 1/4 cup or so of okara in a batch of soymilk, resulting in a non-gritty milk. With the sediment removed, I think I will be able to reduce the amount of xanthan gum to (perhaps) 1/8th tsp per batch. That said, filtering with a nut-milk bag is a bit awkward, as the milk is very hot, and so squeezing the bag is pretty much out. I sort of jiggle the bag to get the milk to flow through the bag.

Here's my procedure:

Soak 3/4th cups of soybeans (conventional measure) and make soymilk using the 'soaked beans' button. I use an eight-cup glass measuring cup to heat 6-7 cups of water to boiling in the microwave and then add the very hot water to the soymaker to the fill line. This speeds up the process. When the soymilk is done, strain it into the plastic pitcher or another container, removing the okara. Next, strain the milk through a nut-milk bag into yet another pitcher to remove the remaining okara.

In a separate small cup or bowl, thoroughly mix 2 Tbls sugar, 1/8th tsp salt, and 1/8th - 1/4 tsp of xanthan gum.
Put the blade of an immersion/wand blender in the soymilk; turn it on so the soymilk is in motion while you sprinkle in the sugar mixture. If you continue to blend the soymilk, it will foam and you may need to use a bigger storage container, so stop before it gets very foamy. Add vanilla if you want to use some. I find that the alcohol-free vanilla tastes significantly better in soymilk than the regular extract, but it is much more expensive.
Put the soymilk in a storage pitcher and chill. The milk will thicken while it chills. After it's chilled, you will need to blend it one more time to break up the gelled foam. The resulting milk will be a bit thicker than commercial soymilk, but the sediment will remain in suspension. I think the extra 'creaminess' works well in coffee.

If you don't want to use xanthan gum, Bob's Red Mill says you can use 1 1/2 times as much guar gum to replace xanthan gum in a recipe. I haven't tried that.

To summarize, you might want these accessories to go with your soymilk maker: very large glass measuring cup, nut-milk bag, extra pitchers for storage or processing, an immersion blender, alcohol-free vanilla.

I'll let you know if I come up with any further improvements in the recipe.

And, apropos of nothing, here's a soup recipe:
3/4th cup red lentils, rinsed and soaked
2-3 carrots (two large or three medium), peeled and cut in thin coins
1/2 sweet potato, peeled and cut in small pieces
2 ribs celery, sliced thinly crosswise
1 hot pepper, seeded, or add your favorite hot sauce to taste after cooking
3-4 garlic cloves, peeled
1/2 - 1 tsp grated ginger
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp ground turmeric

Put ingredients in the soymilk maker; add hot water to between the fill lines.
Put the top on and press the 'porridge' button. When the soup is done, add two Tbls Bragg's Liquid Aminos and 2-3 minced green onions/scallions. Stir and taste for salt.
Variation: substitute 2 1/2 cups frozen sweet yellow or white corn, thawed, for the soaked lentils; omit carrots;
increase sweet potato to a whole sweet potato; omit ginger.

This review is from: Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker and Soup Maker - with All Stainless Steel Inside - New 2013 Model Introduction Sale
I've used a couple of different soymilk machines, and this is far superior. It does a wonderful job of really pulverizing the beans, and that large fine strainer is really nice. I also like the various settings, which allow for much more flexibility in the kinds of milks one can make.

And just to reinforce the title here: it's really easy to clean! Soy is sticky stuff, especially when it's hot, and this is a breeze to clean.

Five stars, well earned.

Just got this today and make a batch of soybean milk with the Laurel soybean sample that comes with it in 30 minutes with no fuss of over boiling or burnt milk. Wow the soybean milk is creamy, rich and delicious. I try to reduce sugar intake and just drink it plain without adding sugar and don't even bother to filter it and it tastes fine. The grainy stuff just settle at the bottom of the jar and I probably just mix them with the dog food when I am done with the soybean milk or mix it in my dinner, cereals, meatloaf etc. This is a great product produce good quality and great tasting soybean milk. Will try making the Almond milk tomorrow. I am happy with my purchase and definitely get the Laurel soybean they are really good. After 8 hours of soaking they start to sprout already that's good fresh orgain beans. I would recommend this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars a most convenient way to make soymilk, August 30, 2013
By
EdC - See all my reviews
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker and Soup Maker - with All Stainless Steel Inside - New 2013 Model Introduction Sale
I don't like specialized kitchen appliances. For example, I find I can make bread and yoghurt just as easily by hand as with a "maker". But some appliances are so much more convenient than the alternatives that they're worth having. I've only used the Soyajoy G4 three times but I think there's a good chance it will end up being used on a regular basis.

The best alternative I've found for making soy milk is to heat the beans and water in a stock pot and use a hand-held blender to grind and mix the beans. Although this works well, you have to constantly adjust the heat to keep the temperature high enough to destroy the trypsin inhibitors and yet low enough to keep the mixture from boiling over. This process requires your constant attention for 45 minutes or so. The advantage of an automated soy milk maker is that it maintains the temperature, grinds/stirs the mixture and keeps track of time while you do other things.

Soyajoy's soy milk makers have become easier to clean over four design generations. These changes eliminated internal filters, moved the heating element into the base and increased the use of stainless steel. It only takes a couple of minutes to clean this model. I wipe the steel parts with with a soapy plastic scouring pad and then rinse with a faucet spray.

One additional change I would have liked is additional sealing to make the unit waterproof. This would make it even easier to clean and more likely to survive an accidental dunking. Another improvement might be a replaceable seal for the blender shaft. I'm worried this seal will eventually leak and cause the unit to fail.

5.0 out of 5 stars Making Coconut Milk, August 29, 2013

This review is from: Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker and Soup Maker - with All Stainless Steel Inside - New 2013 Model Introduction Sale
I purchased this unit to make coconut milk, but there is a lack of instruction from the manufacturer for coconut milk. My first attempts with the Soyajoy G4 were not that successful as the coconut milk came out thin and watery. After much trial and error I believe I have the method for making great coconut milk. You'll need the following products, all of which I was able to purchase from Amazon. 1) Bob's Red Mill Unsweetened Coconut Flakes, 2) Bormioli Rocco Frigoverre Jug with Hermetic Lid, 3) Cheesecloth or similar such as Gourmet Classics 32x38 White Jumbo Flour Sack Towels. I use 2.5 to 3 cups of coconut flakes in my Soyajoy G4, fill with water to the proper level as shown inside the Soyajoy container, then the key is to process 3 or 4 cycles on the raw juice setting. You have to turn off the unit by removing the plug in order to start another cycle. I've found that the more cycles the better. Then I pour the coconut milk through the cheesecloth into a wide and deep bowl. You really need two people for this part, one to hold the cheesecloth over the bowl to keep it from slipping, and another to pour the milk from the Soyajoy into the very tight cheesecloth and push the contents around with a big spoon in order to get it to drain through. It will take a few minutes, but after most of the liquid has been drained through, you need to gather the cheesecloth together and squeeze into the bowl the thick coconut pulp, the okara, that's left behind. There is a lot of liquid milk in the okara. Depending on the size of the wide bowl, it takes me at least two pours from the Soyajoy to process all the milk through the cheesecloth. I then transfer the coconut milk from the bowl to the Bormioli pitcher. Then, if desired, sweeten to taste. I use about 3 Splendas, and sometimes a little Agave syrup. I also add about 3/4 teaspoon of fresh vanilla. This makes a delicious coconut milk which I add to my morning coffee, use for making rich and creamy smoothies or mix with Ghirardelli Unsweetened Cocoa to make a delicious hot chocolate. Be sure to refrigerate the coconut milk. You can expect a small, hard cap to form over the top. I just shake the pitcher before using. The cap should break up into smaller pieces which melt into my morning coffee, making it rich and creamy. I use coconut milk every day and this process makes enough for a week.

This review is from: Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker and Soup Maker - with All Stainless Steel Inside - New 2013 Model Introduction Sale
I mainly purchased the SoyaJoy G4 to make coconut and almond milk. I wish I did not have to add so much water to a batch. The min line was nearly 8 cups of water...and to that I added 3 cups of dehydrated coconut. It came out too thin, so will have to experiment more with a recipe. At this point, it is easier to just make the coconut milk in a Vitamix.
I wish the instruction/recipe book had more recipes etc. I could not find a coconut recipe anywhere online using the SoyaJoy G4...I would like to make some coconut milk using fresh, raw coconut. Anyway have any recipes they could post??
The Soup recipes say to use the "soup" button. Well, there is not a soup button on the SoyaJoy G4.
And the Porridge button, are we suppose to be able to make hot cereal????

I bought this Soyajoy G 4 to make soybean milk. It does its job well. It is easy to use and easy to clean. I am happy with the purchase. I will try to make almond milk next time. So far, I have been making organic non GMO soybean milk 3x/week. If you are health conscious, you may want to make your own milk so you can control how much sugar you put in if you want to put any. You may want to omit sugar. You are in control. I am glad I purchased this machine.

I love this soy maker. Easy to clean and so far works well. I wish that the container where the soy milk is poured in made of stainless steel instead of plastic. Not a fan of plastic. I have to pour the soy mild while straining into a stainless steel pot. Otherwise, I have to wait until it is cold. Doesn't like the idea of pouring hot soy mild into a plastic container. Plastic leaches and releases bad stuff.

After weeks of use I notced that the shaft that holds the blade is corroding. My understanding is that stainless steel does not corrode. Now I do not want to use it anymore because I am scared metal will contaminate the soy milk. I need an explanation.

I became vegan a few months ago and I enjoy many types of non-dairy milks. But they are so expensive at the store and have tons of unnecessary ingredients (stabilizers, emulsifiers, preservatives). I felt like I was wasting money and maybe not drinking the healthiest products. So I decided to buy the Soyajoy. I have only used it a couple times so far, but I am very impressed. I've made sesame milk and rice milk and both turned out great. For the sesame milk I added the same amount of seeds as called for by the hemp milk recipe in the Soyajoy manual. Next time, I'll probably add a little more to get a more ideal consistency. The rice milk, on the other hand, is made with the "porridge" setting and definitely turns out like a porridge, so I added water after it was done to thin it out.
The cycles are surprisingly short, which is really nice. I used the raw milk setting for my sesame milk and it only took about 10 or 15 minutes. The porridge cycle was more like 45, but still no big deal. Another thing I love about this product is that the Soyajoy comes with a pitcher and strainer included. The strainer fits perfectly over the pitcher, making the process extremely easy and stress free. Very thoughtful of them to include. Another thing I love is the overall look of the product. It is beautifully sleek and I have no reason to put it away rather than leaving it out on my counter. It functions in an equally sleek and seamless way, which is even better.
I am planning to make flax milk, black sesame milk, and macadamia milk in the near future. I will update my review as I go through more trials and types of milks!

After viewing all reviews, I'd say "eeh". Well, it works... do soy milk and so on. But it's not 'THAT' kitchen revolution... but will help you a lot, if you are a lazy person as me.

This review is from: Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker and Soup Maker - with All Stainless Steel Inside - New 2013 Model Introduction Sale
My purchase of this Soyajoy was based upon the introductory discount and figuring it would have the best features. Unfortunately it doesn't have a built-in strainer, which seems to me should have been a given for the newest model. The Soyabella model, which I had originally intended to buy, may be an older model with a lower capacity but it does have the built-in straining feature. My intended use is for making nut milks (so the heating feature isn't a consideration). If I have to manually strain the mixture, there's absolutely no advantage over what I'm currently using, my Vitamix blender.

I do not recommend to use it as juicer and it did a poor job, but other than that, it is great for soy milk or mixed beans drink. Follow instruction is extremely important. Quality is good and easy to clean too.

This review is from: Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker and Soup Maker - with All Stainless Steel Inside - New 2013 Model Introduction Sale
My husband is a heart attack survivor. Overnight his diet and appetite changed. Soybean become a must have in his diet. But how I can incorporate soybean in our diet is a problem, until i think about soybean milk. I chose Soyajoy G4 based on its stainless steel inside. The first milk produced by g4 proved that I made the right choice. The milk is rich and delicious. It replaces coffee become our daily drink. The problem next is how to use okara. A week ago, I found out rice produced in USA is arsenic contaminated. Okara becomes my rice substitute. I have also use it to make flat bread.

Recipe for okara bread:

I whole portion of okara the G4 produced.
1 1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup olive oil
three green onion, chopped
1/4 onion, chopped
1 tablespoon steak seasoning
2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper
2 eggs

Mix all the ingredients well, pour it into a well oiled 9x12 cake pan: flat the surface and drizzle with oil. Bake at 400F oven for 20 minutes or until done.

Thanks to G4, now I have my daily drink and daily bread for my husband and me. G4 is the first machine we turn on every morning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the SoyaJoy G-4!, July 17, 2013
By
Valerie Boger (Jonesborough, TN, USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker and Soup Maker - with All Stainless Steel Inside - New 2013 Model Introduction Sale
I love my new SoyaJoy G-4! It is a great price and it is easy to use and easy to clean. And it makes soymilk in a few minutes--especially if you add hot water rather than cold. With the savings from making my own milk I anticipate this machine will pay for itself many times over! I had tried making soymilk by hand (what a time-consuming process!) and found I really didn't like the beany taste. However I decided to order the SoyaJoy G-4 anyway to make almond or rice milk. Since they included a small package of soybeans in the order I made my first batch of soy milk using these Laura beans in the SoyaJoy. What a difference! This milk tasted wonderful! My husband and I both drank a glass of the warm soymilk as soon as it was done. We immediately ordered more Laura soybeans so we can keep making this delicious milk! After doing a little more research and reading some of the reviews I learned a couple of things about making great tasting soymilk. Adding hot water to the SoyaJoy rather than cold makes better tasting soymilk. Also, one reviewer stated that soaking the soybeans in the refrigerator (rather than at room temp) helps to suppress the enzymes that gives off the beany flavor. I also learned that older soybeans taste beanier so you want to order from a company with a good turnover of beans to be assured they give you fresh soybeans (like the Laura beans--which are non-GMO, a very important consideration!) Sometimes healthfood stores have beans that have been stored for a long time. This company (Sanlinx) also has great customer service. I had a few questions and received a prompt email response back with answers to all my questions. I would recommend the SoyaJoy G-4 to my friends and family!

Cleaning is easy but should be done soon after the process is completed. I highly recommend this product to those who seek to make beautifully fresh soy milk from home.

This review is from: Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker and Soup Maker - with All Stainless Steel Inside - New 2013 Model Introduction Sale
I just got my machine on Tuesday July 2. I soaked the soybean overnight, next day, following instructions and the results were very impressive. The okara (pulp) did not bother my taste, so I don't even strain it out. I drink it all the way - hot and cold. Like both ways. During the soaking time, I cleaned the soybean many times, changed fresh water each time and the any empty shell or beans that float on the top of the water, I threw them out. I hear that good beans sinks on the bottom of water, bad beans flow on the top. This should prevent the bitter taste from what I heard.
I do plan to make fresh soybean milk from now on. It is cheaper and also taste better too.

frugal chef (austin, tx) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker and Soup Maker - with All Stainless Steel Inside - New 2013 Model Introduction Sale
It does what it says it does and it does it well. From other reviewers and my own expectations, I want to make one thing clear. Those "milks" at the store aren't real milks. That coconut milk, almond milk and rice milk they sell in the cartoons; all of those are watered down. If you want to make those, don't follow the recipes this company gives you. The rice milk comes out like a porridge (which the company does warn you it will). Their almond milk recipe requires lots of almonds. The result is a wonderfully thick and flavorful milk, but it may be too "almondy" than you want if you're used to the watered down stuff from the store.
I read reviews that their soymilk came out "beany". If you soak your beans in the fridge, you'll avoid activating any enzymes that will make that beany flavor, and certainly do not soak them and then try to store those soaked beans for later use (I did this). The beany flavor will be overwhelming. To add more body to the soymilk, I add shredded coconut, though I plan on trying using other nuts in the near future. The other options on the soyajoy are also useful. I've made broccoli soup on the soup setting. The broccoli wasn't overcooked and the soup was ultra smooth. It had a beautiful bright green color with lots of bright flavors. Using the juice setting, I made agua de tamarino, which it did very well. All I had to do was strain, no pressing or smashing.
Overall, it's a fun new kitchen appliance.

It does all the things that a soy milk maker supposed to do. It is very convenient and easy to use. I use it every other day. After using it that much,I would really like one that has a filter or type of centrifuge that separate the milk from the pulp or okara,because filtering after each batch is becoming a bit time consuming. Otherwise I would give it a five star.

I have made several batches of milk with this including soy and almond. It took some reading and experimenting to come up with milk that was appealing to me. First batches were way to beanny for me. Soaking longer than they suggest and using boiling water has made a big difference in the flavor. I also found that adding a little rice to the beans makes the milk nice and creamy. Works much better than my blender.

Well thought design. It comes with everything you need to make milk. It is large, but it works fine for me because I can make more.
I just purchased Vitamix recently. Vitamix can make raw milk such as almond, hemp milk. Soyajoy can make both raw and cooked milk such as soy milk. If you don't make soy milk and already have vitamix, then you dont' need Soyajoy.

This review is from: Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker and Soup Maker - with All Stainless Steel Inside - New 2013 Model Introduction Sale
I've been very pleased with the G4.
It's surprisingly quiet. I was expecting the sound of a blender chewing nuts.
I would have to say, that in the most part, it's quieter than my dishwasher (and it's pretty quiet as well).
the initial grind is a little noisy, but not all that much, and it doesn't last all that long.

I made soy milk using the included recipe.
I start the beans soaking before I go off to work in the morning. When I get home, I start the machine while making dinner.
In less than 30 minutes, it's done.
I add 1 tsb of Truvia, and 1 Tblsp of Vanilla to the finished milk (about 1.5 liters)
Tastes just like the popular commercial brand.

You definitely want to filter out the okara. It will give the milk a bitter, beanie taste.

Easy to clean. As long as you clean it when the milk is done, and don't let the milk dry on it, and it won't require any hard scrubbing.
It's all stainless steel. Smooth curves so there are no crevices for milk film to get trapped.

My only negative would be the included sieve for straining the okara out.
If it were a bit deeper it would be perfect. As it stands, it's a bit shallow and gets pretty full holding all the bean-bits while the milk finishes draining through it.

Now I have to find some good uses for the okara. I've been dehydrating for now and freezing it.
I'm looking forward to trying almond milk.

Great product. Well thought out. This is one appliance that will get used weekly.

The Soyajoy G4 soy milk maker is awesome. It is very easy to use and easy to clean up. It makes delicious soy milk. Like others, I suggest immediate clean-up after use. The soy milk is the best I have ever had and the amount it makes is perfect for making a block of tofu. This has been a real addition to our household as it saves us a lot of money and trips to the grocer. Also, there are no cartons to dispose of, so there is less waste. I highly recommend this product.

We have had this Soyajoy G4 for about two months now and its in nearly daily use. As a family who does not use cow's milk at all and with a growing boy in the home, we use the Soyajoy to make both soy and almond milks at least 2-3 a week for a fraction of what they cost at the supermarket. With some research on the internet and experimentation, I was even able to create simple recipes that closely simulate the supermarket products using all natural ingredients so I'm happy and my son is happy. Super easy to use, throw ingredients in the pot and push a button. When done, pour the milk into a pitcher lined with a nut bag, strain and chill. Then simply rinse the pot and give a light wipe to clean, I highly recommend this product. It will pay for itself very quickly.

This review is from: Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker and Soup Maker - with All Stainless Steel Inside - New 2013 Model Introduction Sale
I've been using a Sanlinx soy milk maker for about 2 or so years now. I used to use my Soyapower Plus, but recently moved and have my stuff in uhaul storage. I've been using a lot of tofu and soy milk, so I figured I'll pick up the Soyajoy G4 as an addition to the mix... and once I get established I'll have two machines to use.

The old soyapower was loud when it was grinding. I mean, loud. I accepted it. The Soyajoy G4 is much quieter, it almost sounds muffled. Surprising since I opened it up and only saw a metal canister, and a spinning blade pretty much. Then again, the old soyapower had a different design, enclosing the blades in a tunnel with holes.. guess it created a vortex.

The new soyajoy is lighter, easier to clean for me, and lighter. A great addition to my kitchen.

I didn't buy mine through amazon, i went through the sanlinx website.

8/2/2013 I continue to use this system almost every other day. Reliable so far.

FWIW My favorite is 1 measure of soybeans, 1 measure of whole almonds and 1/2 measure of brown rice. Makes a rich drink that in turn makes a GREAT smoothie base.

And make sure to wash up your equipment as soon as possible when done. It's easy if done soon.

PTS

___________________

First, I haven't seen posted the list of what's included.

The unit itself, of course, then a fine mesh strainer, a plastic pitcher with handle, a Soyajoy measuring piece (more on this in a moment), a cleaning mesh and some soybeans.

After cleaning the unit per instructions, in went the pre-soaked soybeans with the water.Pushed the button and in less than 1/2 hour I had soymilk. After straining, I poured the soymilk into a container containing the coagulant for making tofu. After 20 minutes, poured the curdled soymilk into my tofu press.

In the 50 minutes of time to make tofu, my invovlement was less than 10 minutes.

Incredibly easy. So easy that I started another batch of milk, which is chugging away now.

Looking forward to soaking my almond and walnuts for a batch of almond-walnut milk tomorrow.

Now, about that measuring cup. The instructions say to use 1 1/2 measures. The owner's manual says the measure is 1/2 cup (verified) which means 3/4 cup of soybeans should soak. Why wouldn't the measure be 3/4 cup? Odd but clearly not a big deal.

But so far (two batches completed in such a short time) I really like the no-fuss way to better control over what I eat and drink.

More notes: 5/16/2013
I have made almond-walnut milk twice--excellent results.
Made a soy-brown rice milk--really liked the texture and taste. 1 non-standard measure of soybeans soaked overnight and 1/2 non-standard measure of brown rice.

Clean-up is a snap (when done promptly).

Still a five star product.

This review is from: Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker and Soup Maker - with All Stainless Steel Inside - New 2013 Model Introduction Sale
I bought this machine solely to make soy milk. It's important for me that the parts that makes the milk are stainless, and this machine was one of the few listed as stainless in the product description. The machine arrived the day that I had a Chinese guest at home. We made a batch right away. It took 25 minutes using the dry bean setting. My friend buys soy milk from the tofu factory, and drinks soy milk everyday, so I wanted her opinion. She proclaim the milk is very fresh and good and is going to buy a machine for herself.
Now I make a batch about every 4-5 days. Soak the beans overnight, press the button first thing in the morning and 25 minutes later I get hot and fresh soy milk!
My only complain would be that the storage container that it comes with is useless. I don't like to strain hot liquid into plastic, and it doesn't have a lid to be used for refrigeration. So now I strain the hot milk into a stainless pot, and wait for it to cool and got a new container for the refrigerator.

This review is from: Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker and Soup Maker - with All Stainless Steel Inside - New 2013 Model Introduction Sale
I really love my Sojajoy G4, we are saving lots of money in soymilk and almond milk, I also make sesame seeds milk the other day, the best is that it is fresh homemade and that I know what it is in it, no artificial ingridients in it, and I and my husband really think it taste a lot better that the comercial stuff. Another plus are the left overs, I make cookies with the almonds left overs and I use the okara for cakes and eggs and I know there is a lot more I can still do with my soyajoy that I haven't yet. This is a great buy which you will use everyday and will save you lots of money, The service from the seller is also excellent, I had problems with my cable, it was a little lose and I wrote then and they send me a new one inmediadly!!!, so 5 stars, super happy with my machine.

This soy maker is a dream. The cleaning is so much easier than the last model. It makes soy, almond or any kind of nut milk in under 15 minutes with very little effort. I have switched from buying soy and almond milk from the store and only make my own. If you buy organic soy beans and organic raw almonds you will never go back to the store bought yucky kind that has added sugar and who knows what. This is the best appliance I have ever purchased.

This review is from: Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker and Soup Maker - with All Stainless Steel Inside - New 2013 Model Introduction Sale
I have been using this product for a couple of weeks now and overall am very pleased. The only problem I've encountered is that the cord does not fit snugly into the base of the appliance and because of that, the appliance loses power and stops in the middle of a cycle. So a couple of times I have had to restart the batch.

Worked well. easy to use - though the directions were VERY SMALL pring. Was satisfied wtih the milk product - though it was improved by straining through cheese cloth - if you want it really smooth. I like it and will use it to make my own soy milk from now on. Good purchase.

This review is from: Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker and Soup Maker - with All Stainless Steel Inside - New 2013 Model Introduction Sale
Having made soy milk (and other grain/nut milks) for over two decades, all I can say is that this machine was the worst one I ever had the honor of using. Making soy milk from soaked beans, the machine sometimes heats up the milk as it is supposed to, while at other times it does not. Since the whole process is controlled just by pressing a button, there's nothing the user can do. You're at the mercy of the preprogrammed cycle, and when it fails you're screwed.

When making almond milk using the cold cycle as per the manual, the "milk" is nothing more but white-ish water, and some 70-75% of the original almond volume is left as pulp with many particles as large as 1/8 inch size, meaning the grinder simply cannot grind almonds (even after 14-hour soaking) fine enough. After these experiences, I went gladly back to my old machine.

This is my first soy milk maker. I don't have experience with other machines but I like this one because it is all steel where it contacts with the milk which is important to me. It makes very tasty and fine soy milk which you don't have to drain. Easy to use and clean. Now I just hope it is durable.

This review is from: Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker and Soup Maker - with All Stainless Steel Inside - New 2013 Model Introduction Sale
My ND suggested I stop drinking soy milk as it was raising my estradiol levels. He suggested substituting almond milk.

I tried making it with my Osterizer, which was incredibly noisy and messy.

Then I ordered the G4 from Amazon after some research and it is very quiet, apart from some very annoying loud beeps when you program it and when it is finished making the milk.

I have found that it is vital to soak the almonds for at least 12 hours to soften them. I have also found that increasing the number of almonds 50% over what they recommend makes a thicker, most tasty milk and cycling the G4 three times makes the pulp so fine you don't really need to strain it. The fiber is good for you anyway.

Now, if we could just get them to tone down the beeps.

Just one suggestion to maker. If there is a lid to cover the container coming with product, then it will be completed.

5.0 out of 5 stars The SoyaJoy G4 is even better than the SoyaJoy G3!, March 28, 2013
By
Simeon - See all my reviews
This review is from: Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker and Soup Maker - with All Stainless Steel Inside - New 2013 Model Introduction Sale
Recently I received my SoyaJoy G4 soymilk maker and I can say unequivocally that -- even though I loved the G3 -- the G4 exceeds all of my expectations. It's not only larger and (in my opinion) more convenient to use and clean than the G3, but it makes superb soymilk. I've been experimenting with the different combinations of organic soybeans and organic brown rice, and even my wife loves the results. The recipe I most enjoy (so far) is the "Soy-Rice Milk," 1 full SoyaJoy cup of soybeans (soaked over night) and 1/2 SoyaJoy cup of brown rice. I'm a strict vegan, but my wife is far from a vegan or even a vegetarian. And yet she loves the soymilk I make with my new G4. That says a lot!

I'm about to be 60 years old, and -- typical for Americans -- I had gotten a little slack in my exercise regimen as well as my diet. Specifically, I had gotten into the habit of drinking "Silk" Vanilla Soymilk. And, oh, it tasted so good! But it also put on weight. Then, when I learned how deceptive the food label of "natural flavors" can be, hiding hundreds of harmful chemicals with the permission of the FDA, I started examining the labels of everything I ate and drank. Shockingly, "Silk" soymilk has "natural flavors" (who knows what? -- but probably MSG among other nasty creations of a chemist's lab rather than nature). So I decided to start buying WestSoy "organic" soymilk that has no "natural flavors." There was only one BIG problem: At about $3.00 per quarter gallon at my local healthfood store, "organic" soymilk was costing me about $12.00 a gallon. And my wife and I drink a lot of soymilk in things like green tea and whole grain cereals. Conclusion: I couldn't afford to buy "organic" soymilk at the healthfood store. At least not on a long-term basis. I needed to find a better alternative.

That's when I started researching my options and, luckily, ran across the SoyaJoy G3 soymilk maker on Amazon.com. I compared the features and the reviews of the SoyaJoy G3 with the other soymilk makers offered, and chose the SoyaJoy G3. It was love at first taste! I simply adore the G3 and even more the G4. Compared to making soymilk the old-fashioned way, using a SoyaJoy to make soymilk is a pure joy. But most importantly, I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE GOING INTO MY SOYMILK. For someone like myself, who is extremely careful about what I eat and drink, it sets my mind at ease to know that I am consuming ONLY organic soybeans and organic rice and nothing else! The SoyaJoy series of soymilk makers are exactly that: a soymilk joy!

P.S. Since buying my SoyaJoy G3 I've lost almost 40 pounds, dropping my weight in exactly 50 days from right at 200 pounds to 160 pounds. And, although a juice fast and Bikram Yoga have certainly played a significant role in my weight loss, I also attribute no small part of my success to using the SoyaJoy G3 (and subsequently the G4), making my own soymilk, and avoiding all store-bought soymilk, especially (delicious) "Silk" Vanilla Soymilk. It is actually very easy to train one's taste buds to be satisfied with healthier choices. It only takes a little effort at the start, and then -- as Aristotle suggested in his "Ethics" -- we form the "habit" of good practices. Buy the SoyaJoy G4, start making your own wholesome soymilk, and good health will be within your reach.

Simeon

This is my first soy milk maker, which arrived about a week ago. No other soy milk maker to compare with, but I can say that this one is easy to use, does its job as I expected, easy to clean if you clean it up as soon as it's done. The best thing is the soy milk is very tasty! I really should have bought a soy milk maker earlier. Now I am using it every other day as I found soy milk does so much good to our body.

I am giving this product 5 stars. The machine works great and is easy to clean. I made my first batch of soy milk and it tasted great. My only tip to future users of this product is to make sure you clean the pot and the head with hot water and about 2-3 drops of dish soap. This will prevent the soy milk from having a metallic taste. It takes about 30 mins to make and produces about 1/2 gallon of soy milk. Overall, I love this machine and I would highly recommend the Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker.

This review is from: Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker and Soup Maker - with All Stainless Steel Inside - New 2013 Model Introduction Sale
I like to make large volumes of food once or twice a month and freeze everything for later use. So I was looking for a machine that could help streamline my almond milk making process. This item has done that for me. It easily doubled my output (mileage may vary). :) I wish there was a mechanism to squeeze the excess milk from the pulp since passive draining through a sieve (a very nice and finely meshed one too, though a tad smallish) usually isn't enough. I also turn the almond pulp into crackers so I do need the excess liquid removed. I used a cloth to wring the liquid out, but every other step in the process was easy and fast. I used the raw/juice option for my milk. I do add warm water so I could use one of the heating options as well if I chose to add cold water. The raw/juice option takes maybe 8-10mins. While the heated options take 26 mins (per the manual). I just wanted to go faster and I had warm water handy. I processed through just under 9 lbs of almonds in a little over 4hrs (no sugar, no flavorings), and that was me taking a break here and there, washing things off, cleaning up messes in between. This machine had no problem handling that volume. Clean up of the machine was all of 2 mins in length. I am very happy with this purchase.

3mos later...I still love this thing. I now make cashew milk with it (since we now buy cashews in 25lb increments) and the pulp is so fine it goes right through a single layer of cheesecloth. I have to double the cloth if I want to catch any of the pulp. The cashew milk is faster because of less straining. I used 10 pounds of cashews in 2 hours. Very happy with how fast it went.

This review is from: Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker and Soup Maker - with All Stainless Steel Inside - New 2013 Model Introduction Sale
Soyajoy G4 makes great tasting soy milk and requires very minimal effort from its user. That doesn't mean no work, but it's far easier to make soy milk with this product than using traditional kitchen tools like pots and blenders.

I used to buy soy milk from a grocery store, and there are several things I had to learn (or am still learning) when I switched to making soy milk at home:

1.Soy beans need to be soaked in water overnight before cooking (though Soyajoy G4 does have an option for both soaked and dry beans, soaked beans would yield better result according to the manual). So if you wake up in the morning and realize that you don't have enough soy milk left for your breakfast cereal, oops, too late.

2.Making soy milk yields quite a lot of okara (pulpy left over from milking process). Okara is nutritious and beneficial for one's health, but incorporating okara into my daily diet isn't so intuitive and I'm still learning how to make good use of this byproduct. Thankfully there are many blogs and websites that have recipes using okara as main ingredient.

3.The device needs to be washed right after operation. If the device is left unwashed for a while, soy residue would start to dry and stick to the stainless steel surface. This happens very quickly because the working part of this device remains pretty hot after operation. When this happens, I find it easier to run the device with hot water and a few drops of detergent before cleaning with sponge.

Overall I am satisfied with Soyajoy G4. It does require a bit more work than picking up cartons of soy milk from a store, but the taste of homemade soy milk is worth a little extra work in my opinion.

I am so happy. I have been trying to make my own soymilk for the past couple of months. I dirtied so many pots and spent at least 45 minutes stirring the milk so it wouldn't burn. Then I read about the Soyajoy G4. It just came out at the beginning of March and it is now all stainless steel (where it comes in contact with the soymilk). I got my machine yesterday and made 2 batches today. You make almost a half gallon of milk (7 cups) with 3/4 cup dried beans, which you soak overnight. The machine does all the work, you don't have to monitor it. Each batch took under a half hour. Clean up was a breeze (do it right away). I waited until my batch was cold before I tasted it. It was delicious. I like it plain, nothing added. Tastes better that the box of soymilk I was buying for $3 a quart. I know I'll be using this often, making tofu and yogurt too.

5.0 out of 5 stars English humour and the Soypower Plus!, July 21, 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
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!
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.

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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Purchase, June 27, 2010
By 
Christopher Mayo (New Jersey) -
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 Very satisfied with this machine, May 12, 2010

Amazon Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely the BEST Soy Milk maker!, October 17, 2009
By 
Vickilynn Haycraft "Author and Product Reviewer" (North Carolina) 
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 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
By 
Diva's Mama (MD, USA) 

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
By 
Gayle Williamson
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.

Thanks for writing. It works great. The soymilk is starting to rub off on the kids. The grandkids love it. It's good stuff. I'm making 4 - 6  batches every 3 - 5 days. Guess I should have signed up for the warranty. I'm sure I am going to wear it out before it rusts out. Thanks again. Joe.

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

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

I 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!

I am totally enjoying my soymilk maker!  It seems to be one of the few foods I am not allergic to, and I'm feeling much better after only a couple of weeks on this.
Suppose I can add 1/4 cup of lima beans to a batch without harming the machine?  I ask this because the beans are larger.
 
Thanks.

Hi Wendy,
 
I've received the Soy Joy and I LOOOVE it!  Soy milk has never tasted better!  My family, they live in Arkansas, have raved about the machine for the past few months but I never was able to get it so I was pretty excited that I won one.  When it came, I was sooo excited to use it. It's absolutely wonderful!  My father in law tried it and he loves it too.  He's looking into getting one for himself!!!  If all of my family hadn't gotten one, it would have been a for sure Christmas present for each of them!  Thanks so much for my free one!  I am definitely going to make sure to keep up to date with your website for future purchases!!!

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 wanted to write in today to express my pleasure with the Soyajoy soymilk machine. Rarely am I so tickled with a purchase that I feel the need to write a testimonial. I love the machine, and I am now able to make tofu in an hour, versus the previous 2-3 hour long process. Thanks, and keep up the great work!

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. 
 
I have created new okara recipes but haven't written any thing down on paper yet to share.  Such as a okara casseroles and new ways to make burger patties.

Thank you for your follow up.  We actually got our first SoyaJoy 2nd hand and liked it so much we bought a second one directly from you.  We have a family of 6 in which all of us are lactose intolerant so we make 2 1/2 gallons of soy milk/week.  2 machines is making that job much easier!  We make 8-9 batches at once. 

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

Dear Merchant,

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

 

Thanks Sanlinx,

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

Dear Sanlinx,

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).

Thanks for the great product!

I am absolutely thrilled with my SoyaPower soymilk maker. I'm the only one
in the house who uses soymilk so I only make one batch per week. My favorite
recipe so far is plain, unadulterated soymilk. I just add 1/8 tsp sea salt
to each batch. My next project is to make my own tofu. Thanks for the great

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, 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.

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.

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.

Hello Wendy--

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

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

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

Subject: SoyaJoy soymilk maker ... absolutely recommended!
Date: January 11, 2003 at 5:29 am PST

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!

The above comment is a copy from a message posted on Vegsource.com directly by the author (the SoyaJoy customer).

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.
Capri

Dear Soyajoy,

I have used your machine for 2 1/2 years now and it still works great!  I run at least 1 or 2 batches of soymilk through it a week.  My machine is still in good condition but was wondering if spare parts were available such as the filter basket.  I'll probably order a second machine anyway just because it works so wonderfully!!

Hi, I purchased a soyajoy machine about 8 months ago because I had read that drinking soymilk could help bring down cholesterol. I have had a 300 cholesterol count for many years and even though I tried cutting out meat or dairy products nothing changed.

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

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

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

Dear Wendy,

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

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?

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

Hi Wendy,

I sent you an e-mail about rice syrup and you responded. Thank you very much for your response. I finally found a store that sells it.

Just a little information for you. I am a heart patient. I had a heart attack and a quadruple bypass last August. Recently my doctor suggested that I stop drinking cow milk and drink soy milk in order to help get my cholesterol down. I bought your machine and have been using it and saw my doctor last Thursday. My cholesterol rate was down 100 points to 166. My doctor attributes a lot of that decrease to the soy milk. Your soy milk machine has helped me a great deal. I know of at least two other people that will be buying one from you also. I have been telling them of your product and how much I like it.

Once again, thanks for your help and information.

Hi,

The first time I've used your product (yesterday), I made "thick" soymilk and I couldn't believe the great taste -- without using vanilla, honey or any other additive!
I've been using my certified organic soybeans for a very long time, and I wasn't sure how the soymilk would taste. I am so excited and delighted that I'm passing the info onto my daughter and to my health conscious friends!

Dear Wendy

I got my machine yesterday. I am very pleased with the machine and with the milk--it is delicious. I love the taste of the milk hot out of the machine with nothing added. It is very sweet and mild. The machine is easy to use. I can hardly believe that I can make such delicious milk in 12 minutes with so little mess! This morning I used the okara in soy/oat waffles and they turned out great. For lunch we used the milk for banana smoothies. We are going to be so healthy using soymilk in everything. I can hardly wait to try making soups. The flavor is outstanding. My father is on a low sodium diet for his heart--now he can have milk without added salt.

Thank you so much for your prompt and courteous service.

How do I become a distributor? I have four people that are interested.

Sincerely

Kathie

Hi Wendy,

We bought your soymilk maker about half a year ago and absolutely love it! We're drinking 2 batches a day and I am now ready to attempt to make tofu. Can you tell me how much nigari I should use with the quantity of fluid this machine holds? Do you have a recipe? Comments? I would also like to know how to order a second filter. [Sanlinx editor:  Please read this how to make tofu Web page. Okay, your first filter has already lasted six month or 120 batches of use, and it should last a lot more longer. However, if you want to buy a second one just in case, please order from this Web page.]

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.

I followed your suggestions and was able to produce the most delicious

perfect each and every time.  If anyone doubts that this machine is the
greatest, and they don't buy it . . . it's certainly their loss!  I will keep
in touch, because I'm working on some okara recipes.  My only problem is
that, it tastes so great right out of the filter, I never have any left over
to experiment with.  Sometimes while the soymilk is in process, I'm already
sauteing garlic and onions to mix in with the okara, then I add a little
fresh grated parmesan cheese and fresh chopped basil, a touch of sea salt and
fresh ground pepper to taste.  Yummy! (Sanlinx editor - She later on send us a okara recipe, I tell you, she is a professional chef!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Dear Wendy,

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

Regards,

Paul
Reynoldsburg, Ohio

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

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.

2. Can I buy the replacement "Filter Cup"?  If I can, how much does it cost?

Thanks.

Donna

Note: Well, this was not intended to be a testimonial by the customer, but we think this is even more to the point. If the customer did not like the one she bought, would she want to order one for her sister and one for her friend?

This machine is fantastic. Every time I make a soymilk it comes out perfect. I use to make carrot juice 3 times a day. Now I drink soymilk all day and make carrot juice once a day. Cleaning the machine is so easy and quick. Thanks for a great product. I would recommend it to anybody and its priced right.

Thanks,

Alvin

Hi Wendy,

We've had our Soymilk Maker for thirteen days, and have used it six times. It worked perfectly every time! What an improvement over a previous brand which never worked the same way twice, and cost almost $250. So far we've used it in the automatic mode only and it has been  satisfactory-- as you thought it would be. We may experiment with it in the manual mode as time permits. It takes about 35 minutes from the time we push the start button until the machine is washed and put away. For the past two months we 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.

So far, we're 100% satisfied. We appreciate your honest representation of the product.

Regards,

Paul
Reynoldsburg, Ohio

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

I'm attaching the recipe for the okara bread for you. Let me know if you like it. Other options could easily be done with it and I'm going to continue work on okara recipes. This one will be a standard for us.

I'm sending you a check today for three more unit. My niece was here from Wisconsin and she wants one and will introduce it to her co-op and friends. Also, I want the spare unit for me and I want one for my son also.

Thanks, Dick

Dear Wendy,

We received the soy milk maker today. So far, it is truly a marvelous machine. I have a question for you; can we prepare soy milk with less water so it comes out a little stronger? Do you have any suggestions or comments on this. We would appreciate any feedback you may have to offer regarding this. Again, we thank you for a great product and a prompt reply.

Sincerely,
Paul Falk

Note: Thanks to SoyaJoy's unique features - customized programming and an external feeding window - the user can adjust the thickness the soymilk. This cannot be done with other brands that do not offer these features. --- Sanlinx Inc.

Dear Wendy,

After only one day, I can say that the soy milk maker has been the greatest addition to our house since sliced bread. This machine is truly a time saver and very convenient, especially, if you like fresh soy milk. We appreciated receiving your quick response regarding other ways of making soymilk stronger, if preferred. Please feel free to post these comments on your website. Again, thanks for providing a great product with speedy delivery.

Dear wendy,

Thanks for the info on dairy. We received our Soy Maker and ran it thru a trial last night with the Laura bean. It was a no-brainer to make and the milk tasted great.

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

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

Sincerely,

Joan and Ray Bouchard

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!

Just one last thing and I'll leave y'all alone for awhile. I wanted you to know you may have a rush of orders coming. The day I found your site, I started talking about it online with 1000 of my closest friends -- on an email list about learning to eat healthily. I gave a follow up report yesterday, and people are asking about where I got the machine, so today I posted again with your website address. You may notice more 'hits' in the next few days, and I hope more business as well. When I am happy, I like to share with everyone! Keep up the good work. By the way, you are the only one who has EVER sold me a product and then contacted me later to make sure it arrived and is working correctly. As a consumer, I appreciate that more than you can know. Keep doing this with your customers! It makes us feel like family (and of course we are loyal to our family!).
