    soy milk maker

    Soyajoy

    The newest version of a very popular soy milk maker from a much-loved brand, this gadget has a stainless steel interior that’s easy to clean and operates with simple buttons on top. You can specify whether you're making milk from soaked beans or dry beans. If you're making milk from grains or nuts, you can select between raw juice (for making nut milks that don’t need cooking), grains, and porridge as well.

    This machine is designed to handle each step at the perfect temperature. It soaks the beans at 180 degrees, then grinds the beans between 180-190 degrees, and cooks the final product at 200-210 degrees. The kit includes a measuring cup, metal strainer, plastic pitcher, and cleaning pad. A sample of beans is also included for your first batch of soy milk.

    Best with Internal Strainer: Tribest Soyabella Soy Milk and Nut Milk Maker

    Soy milk is only 15 minutes away, so you can set this machine up while you’re making breakfast and have soy milk ready when the eggs and toast are finished. Raw nut milks are even faster, taking less than a minute to process, as long as the nuts are previously soaked. If you enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning, it can be converted to a coffee grinder, so it will earn its keep in your kitchen even if you don’t make soy milk every day.

    The interior is stainless steel for easy cleaning. Temperature and grinding settings are user-controllable, so you can use the recipes you like best. A filter catches the pulp, so you have usable soy milk right from the machine, though some users prefer a second filtering to remove the last bits of pulp.

    Best Compact: Chufamix Vegan Milker Classic

    This milk maker requires you to use your own hand blender to provide the blending power that pulverizes the nuts, seeds, or beans. After blending, you use the included mortar to squeeze all of the liquid out from the pulp and through the filter.

    This model doesn't cook or soak your beans beforehand or cook the product after, it just filters the pulp from the liquid mixture after its blended. This tool can produce about a liter of strained milk in about a minute, depending on the power of your immersion blender. For storage, the pieces nest together, so they take up very little space on your shelf.

Many users agreed, although some still preferred to use their own filter to remove the final pulp.

    This soy milk maker has time and temperature presets, so you can program the machine to have the soy milk ready when you want it.
