Do any of you use the Almond Cow?

I could post a link, but those of you who can answer the question do not need one. The website is trying to sell product, so of course it is going to post the rave reviews. I am looking for perspectives from people who have no vested interest in selling this product. Those of you who have used the Almond Cow, is it worth it?

Is that where almond milk comes from?

I'm sorry. I couldn't resist.

I don't have personal experience with it, but as for any kitchen item, I'd recommend trying the old-fashioned way first.

If you have a good blender, nut milks are really easy to do: soak the nuts (or not... I have a good Blendtec and do not always soak first), blend, then pour through a clean kitchen towel into a glass jar. I guess the Almond Cow simplifies the kitchen towel part, but you could use a French Press if you'd prefer.

Chances are the Almond Cow is not as good/reliable a blender and parts will be harder to find when it breaks. I always prefer ONE kitchen device on my countertop that does everything than a lot of single-use items.

Jason, I've not used the Almond Cow, but looking at it compared to my Joyoung soymilk maker it doesn't look great. (UNLESS you hate straining. I don't think straining is a big deal). You can find new and used Joyoungs out there and they are tanks. The one I have will make milk from any cow nut or grain, as well as jam, juice, double-thick soymilk, and a few other things I already forget (maybe porridge?). I got mine used on Ebay and I think I paid 75 bucks, I use the heck out of it, wish I had sprung for one sooner. It's all stainless inside and I expect to get a good long life out of it. Also, the Cow seems to be 220v, which is at the very least inconvenient where I live.

I heard that Almond milk increases breast size...

Unfortunately my wife doesn’t like it, but I sure do.

note: Yes, only a few might get the humor in this. If you don’t get it, please don’t fret about it, it was just a little fun that I couldn’t pass up.
