Great skimmer for up to 4 gallons
This skimmer is great in my 16 quart double boiler! I would need a longer one if my milk pot were any deeper.
Stainless Steel Skimmer
The skimmer is the best way to remove the curds from the whey, far better a tool than a regular slotted spoon or similar tool. The skimmer is easy to clean and nicely balanced.
A good feeling skimmer
I got this to be a cheese skimmer, and it's grand-- but it's also nice for skimming other things. Well balanced, and a good tool. I'm happy to have it in my cheese making kit! And my egg poaching kit. And my soup skimming kit. And my "lend my kitchen an aura of competence" kit, too.
The perfect tool!!!
I wanted to start my venture into cheese making right to avoid disappointments, so my very first piece of equipment was this skimmer. It is so well designed and felt so good to hold that I was halfway to believing I was already a pro with my first batch of chevre. With that solid beginning I won't mind a few failures now but I won't need to contribute the cause to the tools I'm using! This is perfect! Even if you think you have something that 'might ' work, just do it right and get this!!
