This cheese making kit is fun for all ages, simply add milk and enjoy. What could be better than making fresh, homemade mozzarella in your own kitchen.
With this kit you can go from fresh milk to stretching mozzarella in approximately 30 minutes. Along with mozzarella you can also make fresh whole milk ricotta, yum.
When making mozzarella, or any cheese, we always suggest local dairies, when available. For mozzarella the milk needs to be processed below 170F, at the dairy, for proper curd formation.

Use the freshest milk you can find, local milk is always best, when available.
Milk that has been pasteurized above 170F can be problematic for curd formation, when making 30 minute mozzarella. If you see problems with curd formation, we recommend contacting the dairy and asking about their milk processing temperatures.
This kit can be made with any type of low heat processed milk, including goat milk and powdered milk.

I miss it. It brightened my day every time.
**Long Story Part, very interesting** —I got into cheesemaking while living in places with limited cheese access. —I brought my cheese kit to HK and Korea. —The milk was easy to find, and for non-chlorinated water, we used mountain spring water. **See how interesting?** Great experience. The kit was as thorough as one would want. The process went just as instructed. When tap water didn’t work, the troubleshooting gave hope and sent us to the spring water. Everything went so well. It was thoughtful to include suggested uses for the whey, and we made dozens of pizzas. Also I still saved some money by making the mozzarella myself rather than going and getting it in Korea. It was much cheaper to make my own pizza. Also, you can’t beat the feeling of waking up and knowing, “Hey, I can go eat a chunk of salty cheese goodness right out of the fridge, right now.” Also, “Mmm. Warm curds."
I had no idea cheese was so easy to make!
Purchased this kit to try my hand at making my own cheese. It came promptly and the instructions were clear. It took 2 tries to get something that looked nice & smooth but I expected that since you do have to practice something new to get the hang of it. Both tries tasted great and made for a fun time for my husband and I.
Easy and fun!
This kit is great -- you can make delicious cheese while your guests sip wine, and then serve it fresh while they wait for dinner. I get everyone in on the action -- we make the cheese and then eat it with fresh tomatoes while we chat and have our pre-dinner drinks. It's fun and everyone feels a sense of accomplishment. It's also very fun to do with kids -- they love making their own food, and seeing the cheese form is like magic.
Fell Back in Love with Mozzarella Cheesemaking!
Purchased the kit a few years back and no luck in mozzarella making so gave it up. Purchased a new kit recently and after hitting some bumps called the company and the lady helped me through with some problems. Bam! Now I can nail it every time! Had to go through alot of milk to find out which ones worked and which ones didnt. It was worth it. Thanks for a great product. Definitely for everyone to give it a try.
