Great mold, great value
I purchased this mold to make the 4 gallon saffron and black peppercorn cheese. The final product was stunning in color and this mold gave it the most beautiful pattern. Next time I will probably use cloth as recommended in the recipe but it still worked well enough by extending the time in the mold before the first flip. I have also used the smaller size to make the Manchego/Hispanico recipe, also a visual treat. Sturdy, well priced and new favorite in my collection.
Received this mold and it seems very sturdy. I just made my follower to fit and can't wait to try it. Great value.
A quality product at a good price. It arrived in less then a week and considereing I live in England that's pretty impressive. If I have any complaints it is that no follower comes with it, but I can get round that. I brought it to make a more authentic looking Pecorino cheese as I have seen in Italy.
