3.4 / 5.08 ReviewsWhen you tighten down the pressure, the threads strip and you can't get it as tight as you need it. The plastic also bows up a bit and the cheese dosen't get enough pressure/ pounds like it should, and after a few days of drying, the curds separate and the cheese is ruined. It is a great idea, the engineering just needs some tweaking.May 14, 2017Purchased

1 year agouselessit did NOT hold a full batch of "farmhouse cheddar" so the pressing spring,top bar with threads can not be attached.. i had to find something to weight the follower to proper pressure .. the base bows in the middle while pressing even with the lightest bit of pressure..i found the whole unit useless and a waste of money..it got one star because the color is pretty..May 29, 2017Purchased
1 year agoMy Goto for fresh cheeseNicely built and a great answer for my monthly need to make Paneer cheese for my Indian cuisine moments. Paneer is simple enough, but I'm tired of balancing water filled pots on top of my cheese to get the whey out ( this leads to a very asymmetrical product as well). Now I get a professional piece of paneer, even curds and ready for the fridge in half the time!May 31, 2017Purchased

9 months agoWorks well for me doing one batch a weekWorks as expected and is a solid product for the new cheese maker. The column slips a bit with higher pressure. It will help if the base rim were higher.February 14, 2018Purchased

Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 6 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.
