A hundred bucks may seem like a lot to spend on yogurt, even the kind with fruit on the bottom. But think of it this way: if food is fashion, yogurt’s the new black. Dairy shelves across America groan under the weight of added active bacterial cultures. The East Coast-West Coast froyo rivalry, mostly Pinkberry vs. Red Mango, rages on. Even that old social taboo, digestive health, has a celebrity spokeswoman (Jamie Lee Curtis, America’s sweetheart and proud face of Activia). Yogurt’s at the forefront of national nutrition, and it’s time to invest in a big-ticket item.

Fortunately, just about a hundred and thirty bucks—probably less than your annual Go-Gurt budget—buys you Cuisinart’s “Thermo-Electric Yogurt Maker.” Don’t let the name scare you off—the machine’s about as accessible as they come. Just choose your preferred milk or milk-substitute, i.e., soy milk, pour the liquid into the container and press “Start.”
