In microwaves liquids can heat up to a temperature higher than boiling point without this being visible. Adding a utensil or ingredient could cause sudden boiling and the liquid to boil over. So that this does not happen, we advise as follows: 1. Strictly follow the instructions of the manufacturer of your microwave. 2. Do not overheat milk beyond the times recommended in our brochure and/or where applicable in each of the recipes. 3. Stir milk before placing the container in the microwave. . Leave the container to stand for about 20-30 seconds after heating milk. . After this time, be careful when putting a spoon or any other utensil or ingredient into the container.

You also have the option of heating milk in a separate container and checking the temperature at 92ºC and using the Cheese Maker for the whole straining and standing process and shaping it.


3 cups (750 ml) fresh milk

1 ½ cup + 1 tbsp yoghurts

1/2 cucumber

2 teaspoon of oregano

2 cloves garlic

Olive oil


Tzatziki, cacık (Turkish pronunciation: [dʒaˈdʒɯk]), or tarator is a dip, soup, or sauce found in the cuisines of Southeast Europe and the Middle East. It is made of salted strained yogurt or diluted yogurt mixed with cucumbers, garlic, salt, olive oil, sometimes with vinegar or lemon juice, and herbs such as dill, mint, parsley and thyme. It is generally served as a cold appetizer (meze) or a side dish.
