Yogurt is made by heating milk, inoculating it with starters, and then incubating it for several hours at the right temperature to create a healthy treat. This makes a yogurt maker an indispensable kitchen appliance for yogurt lovers. This device comes in a variety of models including ones that produce yogurt in small serving-sized containers and some that make the creamy delight in a large central vat. Equipped with a timer, these appliances can churn out healthy yogurt with just a push of a button.
When shipping a yogurt maker, it must be packed appropriately to ensure that it arrives intact and in good condition. Here are some tips on how to properly pack and ship a yogurt maker.
Pack the yogurt maker in its original container. Use pieces of bubble wrap to keep parts in place and prevent them from colliding with each other. If the manufacturer’s packaging is not available, wrap each part in bubble wrap before stacking together. Then, wrap the entire unit with more bubble wrap and use tape to secure. Place the device inside a sturdy box lined with a layer of packing peanuts at the bottom. Fill remaining spaces on the sides and top with more packing materials before closing and sealing the box.
Place the boxed yogurt maker in a slightly larger shipping box. Keep the inner box away from the bottom, sides, and top of the outer box by using a lot of packaging materials. The inner box should not move or shift. Seal the outer box with packaging tape.
Address and label the package and take to a post office or shipping company.
