If you have a soymilk maker please post your reviews here. I'm shopping for one. I want one that will also make almond milk, and tofu.

I have the SoyQuick soymilk maker. It makes soy, rice, and almond milk and they give you some coagulant to make tofu (just a few packets). The tofu press comes separately but I made tofu without the press - just used cheese cloth.<br><br>
I'm happy with the maker.

Thanks! I didn't even know such a thing existed till I read about it on this forum! I have been feeling bad about the wasteful packaging involved in nondairy milks - even when we buy the biggest size, we are going through at least two containers a week. For that reason alone, I like the idea of making my own. And now looking at the cost comparison, it seems like a real no-brainer!<br><br>
Thanks!

We are pretty happy with it. It works quickly, and was pretty inexpensive. We've gotten our money's worth within 3-4 months.

I know this is an old thread, but I'm hoping to get a little more information about the soymilk maker. I would use it to make rice milk -- does the end result taste similar to Rice Dream? My children are quite particular about the taste, as we've tried other brands that aren't as good.<br><br>
So I guess I'm asking if someone can tell me how the rice milk from the soymilk maker actually tastes.<br><br>
Thanks!

I made rice milk with my soy milk maker and was disappointed. It was very thin. Someone suggested making another batch using the rice milk from the first time instead of water but that seemed like too much work. I like my own rice milk better. Here's the recipe if you want it:<br><br>
Brown Rice Milk<br><br>
1/2 cup brown rice<br>
8 cups water<br>
1/2 teaspoon sea salt<br>
1 cup or more cold water<br>
3 tablespoons brown rice syrup, maple syrup, agave nectar, or honey<br>
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)<br><br>
Place rice, 8 cups water, and salt in pan. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer 3 hours, or until rice is very soft. (You can also do this in a slow cooker overnight.)<br><br>
In a blender, puree rice mixture with remaining ingredients. (You will have to do it in two batches.) Puree each batch 2 to 3 minutes, or until rice is completely liquefied. Add more water if a thinner consistency is desired. Keep refrigerated.<br><br>
Makes about 6 cups<br><br>
Note: A few drops of liquid stevia can be used to sweeten the milk instead of syrup or honey.

Thanks, Cathe. Yeah, that recipe does seem like a lot of work. I guess I'll just keep buying rice milk by the case for now.
