I’m a big fan of soy milk for both drinking and baking but have always balked at paying close to $3 for a quart of the commercially available brands. Making my own seemed too much of a production, until I tried the Soyabella soy milk maker by Tribest. Using it is easy: You just plug in the machine, pour soybeans (from a can or dried beans soaked overnight) into the mesh basket, screw on the top, and push a button. In 15 minutes the machine grinds the beans (rather loudly) and heats the water, producing 1 quart of hot soy milk.

I like to substitute soy milk directly for cow’s milk in baking recipes such as banana bread and pancakes, but I also drink it straight, with just a pinch of salt. The Soyabella also makes raw nut or rice milk.

The goof-proof elements are part of what makes this appliance a winner: no exposed heating coil and sensors that shut the unit off if there’s too much or not enough water added. It even comes with a cleaning brush and scouring pad, making it simple to keep the stainless-steel cooking chamber and mesh basket clean. And it ends up costing less than 50 cents for a quart of fresh soy milk. The Soyabella sells for $100 at EverythingKitchens.com.
