Great mold. I used it for feta and it accomodates 1 to 1.5 pounds mo problem. because of teh taper on the mold, ther is quite a bit of space when you first put the curds in. I have not found this to be a problem, as it sorts itself out after you turn the chees in the mold.
This was fun and tasted so very good. I can hardly wait to make more and add to the choices.
love it! Had a hard time finding until I came to your site. excellent product just what I was looking for.
I like the verticle slots for draining, the cheese doesn't get caught up in them when flipping (seen some elsewhere that had horizontal slots). I just wish that the taper on the mold wasn't so steep for 2 reasons 1) when stacking with cheese in them, the bottom one doesn't cover all of the surface of the one it's sitting on; and 2) when using a follower on the top cheese has the same results, either the follower is too big and hits the edges of the basket, or it's too small and doesn't cover the cheese. Pictured is a batch of halloumi and ricotta. Does not come with a follower, the follower in the picture is from a different mold.
Works exactly as advertised. New England Cheese Making is a great company to work with. All of their products are quality and the service is top notch.
