What is Probiotic Maker?
The Probiotic Maker is a compact device that turns a gallon of milk into yogurt! And, it does so without requiring the user to purchase expensive equipment.
This device is shaped like a heating pad and is wrapped around a gallon of milk. It slowly heats the milk over a period of 8-9 hrs, after which it is cooled in the refrigerator. Following this, the yogurt is ready for eating!
Who is Probiotic Maker Founder?
The Probiotic Maker was created by an innovator and father of 8, Merrick Maxfield. Feeding his kids healthy and nutritious foods has always been a priority for Merrick and his wife. With a large family that loves yogurt, and goes through it very fast, Merrick wanted to create a device that could cut much of the costs associated with supplying enough yogurt. The product of his innovation was the Probiotic Maker.
Merrick’s background in business and marketing equips him with the essential knowledge that helped him develop this product for consumers. Merrick’s product became more popular because after the show was aired. To date, he has sold several thousand units.
As an added bonus, Merrick’s company offers a subscription service for the culture needed to make the yogurt. This culture is easily added to the gallon of milk during the entire process of yogurt making.
The subscription service is significantly more affordable in comparison to purchasing culture from a grocery store. Additionally, it ensures that only the best quality ingredients are used in the making of your yogurt.
