I'm able to make a lot of excellent cheeses with it. I made some good Chedder for sandwiches, and some good Parmesan for pasta.

Good kit Review by Simon

As a cheese maker I give this kit as a gift to people. All the equipment is useful when starting out, and you can make different cheeses with it. Only a cheese press is really needed.

Everything you need Review by rgarney

All of these kits provide some equipment that fulfills a necessary job in the process. A thermometer with a clip that attaches to the side of the pot would be a useful, as the one included kept slipping into the pot.

never made cheese before but started with this kit. Had no troubles at all. I was surprised how easy it is to make cheese especially after having the Amish man I get milk from tell me it WAS hard. Everything you need is here to make simple cheeses.

Easier to make cheese than beer Review by Sample

I was surprised at how easy it is to make cheese that tastes very good. My consistency might not be as good as top quality cheese, but the taste is excellent. Other than a press, this kit has it all.

Originally I got this for my wife, but I ended up being the one to use it. I am able to make lots of different cheese and the kit comes with most of what I needed except for a cheese press.

Great for a gift Review by cutthecheese

I haven't even bought this yet (plan on doing so this weekend), but know that it's going to be the perfect Christmas gift for my mom this year. She loves to cook and has over 500 cookbooks, some of which are bound to be about cheese! I'm looking forwared to using this too, and have a relative looking into getting her the cheese press!

I got a good book and read through it, taking notes. I made a nice tasting Feta. I don't yet have a cheese press so had to go small. All in all, a good kit.

You can make great Cheddar with it Review by Andrew

(Posted on 9/20/13)

Product Rating:

It had everything I needed to start making good cheese. I made Feta for my salad, and cheddar for the family. A friend lent me a cheese press for making Cheddar and I think I'll pick one up.

There is a lot you can do with this kit Review by McDermot

(Posted on 8/27/13)

Product Rating:

This is a really cool kit. You can make a lot of excellent cheeses with it. I quickly realized I needed a cheese press so I bought that in addition. I've been making Feta cheese regularly for my salads. I made Parmesan for spreading on pasta. And I made a nice sharp cheddar.
