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.
Such a Pretty Cheese Mold
The finished cheese is so pretty with the basket design. This mold is very sturdy so should last a long time.
Canestrato Cheese Mold 1-8 Lbs
Convenient cheese mold for the number of pounds it supports. I am using this cheese mold for my own version of Queso Fresco. Very nice design, It can be sanitized in my dishwasher using the sanitize cycle; this cheese mold holds its original shape with no problem whatsoever. The price is just right. Excellent quality.
