That aside, the product is excellent.We've used it to make almond milk, which it does with ease in seconds producing a wonderfully creamy milk packed with nutritional goodness.
The reason why we choose this was because there were very little of them available on Amazon at the time of purchase (approx 12 months ago). What I didn't realise at the time of ordering was that it was coming from France and had to wait a while before it arrived.
It's a very well built unit with an appropriate design. It comes with full instructions and all the necessary accessories and it's extremely easy to use. Not many buttons to press or options to choose from.
It's easy to use, soak the beans for a minimum of 4 hours, fill the chamber up to the level with hot water, place the beans in the appropriate metal cup and attach it to the upper unit, attach the top to the bottom section and press the button.
It then heats up to the appropriate temperature for about 10-15 mins (approx) and then the blades kick in to cut up the soya beans. If you have any pets, are elderly, have heart problems or any combination of the 3 I would leave the kitchen as the blades will make you and your pets jump, especially if you are right next to it. It does less than 5 mins of cutting and mixes the beans and hot water together to form soya milk and keeps the solid soya curd in the top attachment well away from the soya milk (I eat the curd).
It bleeps constantly when it's finished 15 mins latter and it's very, very hot. I usually leave it for 5-6 hours and then pour the soya milk into a 1L glass jug and leave it in the fridge. 1 cup full will produce about 1.5 litres of soya milk and keeps for about 3 days. Quality wise - not as good as what you get in cartons but the amount of bits generated is minimum with no requirement for further filtering. Non GM soya tastes nice and smooth but GMO not so nice and thicker and remember that Organic does not mean Non GM (I learnt the hard way).
Have I had any problems?. Yes. After about 4 months it stopped working and found out that sending it to France for repair to return would be very costly and they would take a while to fix it. Solution?. Yes. I removed the top section, left it to dry naturally for 5 days, covered so that only air could get to it, not dust. 5 days latter it had dried out enough and it worked OK (I'm not recommending this by the way, just telling you what I did).
You have to be extremely careful when cleaning it. Take it an arms length from the sink and clean the top part very gently with a soaked cloth and warm water and leave to dry naturally. Bottom part not as critical but rinse the chamber out and clean the top connecting section out with the moist cloth. It only takes a small amount of water to get into the mechanical parts to mess things up so be careful folks.
Any other problems? Yes. From time to time it fails to start a cycle although the lights are on. What to do?. Turn it off, leave for 5 mins and try again. Do this repeatedly until it works. Not acceptable but its a solution.
So all in all well made easy to use machine that produces good quality soya milk as long as you pick the right soya beans first. If you want to know which beans I use then drop me a comment and feel free to ask any questions. I have not used it for anything else other than soya milk but it's worth noting that it does come with a rice metal milk cup which I haven't tried.
Thats why I bought the Soyabella as soon as I heard about it. There are other soy milk machines but the Soyabella was the best machine I had seen on the market. It seems the safest machine to use, the blade is enclosed inside a mesh grinder that captures almost all the ground up soy beans but at the same time allows the beans to infuse their flavour into the water while the grinding is in action.
The machine is modelled like a kettle so its easy to store in a corner or a cupboard while not being used. Its a simple design making it easy for cleaning after use. The lid part is the part with the motor mechanism for the grinding blade in, so is a little on the weighty side, but once you have removed the mesh cage and emptied the ground beans, every part is easy to clean.
Although the name implies it, the Soyabella is not just limited to making soy milk. All types of nut or grain milks can be made and you also have the choice to make raw or cooked nut milks. There is a small booklet that gives you basic recipes to try out for soy milk. Just one thing worth mentioning. Be wary if you have always made rice milk the traditional cooked method, I attempted this in the Soyabella and although it gave a very tasty and creamy textured rice milk, it really did make a mess of the mesh grinding cage and I had to leave the cage to soak for a few hours before I could attempt to clean the rice that had clogged all the mesh up. Since then I have had no problems making raw rice milk, in fact it tastes even nicer. Its such a simple machine to use. One of my favourite milks is raw rice and walnut milk with a pinch of paprika and a spoon of sugar.
I wont go on about what I enjoy making to drink, the fact is, the Soyabella is a good kitchen gadget to own. as well as making vegan milks, you can also use it to make delicious home made soups and broths, and some rice desserts.
The only downside that I have found is, I do recommend that you use a fine sieve or a cheese cloth to pour the milk through when you drain the soyabella kettle, as the grinding mesh does not stop the very fine ground grains from milk making, and these can irritate your throat if not removed before drinking the milk.
But apart from that minor problem, this really is the best soy milk maker to have.
