ElbowE77: Sure, I'll let you know how I do with that yogurt maker. If I lose this Healthy Cooking Challenge Link --anything's possible with me on a computer!-- you can keep in touch with me through my Spark Page. Feel free to make me a friend so we don't lose each other in the masses of sparkers around!

Should you want to look it up online, I've ordered a Euro Cuisine YM100 Automatic Yogurt Maker through Amazon.com, after checking with Best Buy, Target, Walmart and BedBath&Beyond, who offered the best charges for the same product.

I too have multiple crock pots I think I have 4 of various sizes and shapes, they are wonderful and I use them year round it so nice to have a hot dinner without heating up the whole house in the summer. As for the rice maker I have that also and what a nice way to make a pot of rice or quinoa and it is so easy to clean. I would like to see updates on the yogurt maker, let us know how you like it and maybe that will be my next addition to kitchen electronics.

I'm totally with you. I love my crock pot and rice steamer, especially in the hot summer months. I can steam veggies in the rice maker and cook a chicken in the crock pot. Dinner in 15 minutes that's healthy and delicious without heating up my kitchen. I like a hot meal when I get home at night that I don't have to spend an hour preparing. I'll have to check out the yogurt maker, as greek yogurt is already a staple for me.

Crockpots can be surprisingly versatile. I use mine whenever I can just to conserve power and be a bit more "green"-minded. As I write, mine's working on a batch of sauerkraut (rinsed!), kale and pork soup.

My new "toy" is a yogurt maker: ordered it online yesterday. Looks like there'll be a lot of yogurt in my healthier future, and I did the math: like a good furnace/A/C unit, this little toy should pay for itself by fall.

A basic 6-cup rice cooker is also quite versatile, particularly cooking for one. I use mine in place of the crockpot for smaller batches of dried beans, lentils, poached fish/chicken, hot grain cereals, and rice, of course. Nothing boils over in my rice cooker and makes a mess on the stove--which inevitably puts me in a grumpy mood!

Hah! See how I'm helping you spend your virtual money?
