I am thinking about buying one since we go through so much soy milk in a week!

Does anyone have one? Tips? Ideas?

Thank you,
Debra

I got the SoyaJoy for my birthday in Nov.
I love it. It is saving me loads of money I am sure. I like that I can sweeten some soy milk for drinking if I want, but leave the bulk of it plain for baking with.
One thing I have found is that the filter is not very thorough. After the soymilk is done, I strain it through a Gerber flatfold birdseye weave diaper. They are about the only diaper cheap enough to be right for the job. I actually buy those just for the kitchen. They are a step up from cheesecloth, but looser weave than muslin. Perfect!

I am expecting this June and I bought 4 dozen Tiny Tots irregular gauze flats since my stash of newborn sized Chinese prefolds only made it through 3 kids before shredding! I'll be sure to save some new diapers for the kitchen!

My mom bought us a Soy Toy and I have to admit, I'm not thrilled with it- the milk tastes really beany and the texture isn't all that endearing, either.

RasJane- how does your machine work? Ours kind of cooks the b eans and then grinds them and cooks them a bit more (I think...) then you have to strain the resulting glop. I'll try your diaper trick on the next batch but I have to admit I find myself using commercial soy milk more than not.

How about making your own almond milk? Almonds are a great source of calcium, iron, and protein. It's much less expensive than buying milk and saves on all that packaging. All you need is a blender - granted you will have to adjust to a different taste. I have recipes for several nut/seed milks in my book Simply Natural Baby Food. I'd be happy to post them if anyone is interested.

I know this is a really old thread, but I thought I'd bump it up to see if anyone else had a soy milk maker that they would recommend or avoid?
