Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 8 answersIs this dishwasher safe?BEST ANSWER: You need to be very careful with contamination of your cheese making supplies. No, do not put in dishwasher..hot water,plain soap, then rinse with the rinse agent they sell..if you have chlorinated water, use purified or bottled for washing AND cheese making,.the chlorine residue will affect your cheese .its a little more complicated than ya think..but worth it when you taste your cheese the first time..is the curd left in the press for hours,days? you have a lot of curd, what do you do with that in the meantime?BEST ANSWER: The curd has to be left in for usually a day or two depending on which kind you are making. I never make more than two pounds of cheese at a time, which is right around two gallons of milk. It will fit perfectly in the press. That way I don't have any leftover curd.Is the plastic on the press BPA free?BEST ANSWER: Did not do a chemical test on the product, it seems extremely small when you first get the product but after a few dozen pressed rounds of cheese you'll be thankful that it's not bigger
