Tomme Cheese Mold
This sturdy Tomme cheese mold is ideal for Tomme style or semisoft cheese, including Reblochon, Munster, Blue, Tomme, and Trappist style cheese. Each mold comes complete with a follower for even pressing.
Small: This mold is ideal for small Tomme style or semisoft cheese including Reblochon, Munster, or Trappist style cheese. These molds are not tapered so they cannot be stacked on top of each other.
Large: The top of this mold is slightly wider than the bottom wider so several molds can be stacked on top of each other for light pressing. When using the follower, this mold will easily handle up to 100 lb of pressing weight, for a higher pressed Gruyere style cheese. Turning the cheese several times with no weight towards the end of the molding stage evens out the top and bottom diameters so it ends up with a nice little bulge in the side.

It was my first attempt to work with this mold for Munster cheese. The small amount of curds were not enough weight to compress the mold below. I did not get good results, but then I am new at cheese making and am learning by mistakes perhaps. I open my Colby on 2/29/2020 and am curious what went on under the red wax. I will keep experimenting with all my molds. It is actually fun!
Really great molds, very heavy duty...can handle lots of pressing weight. My only downside is that the followers are a little tight, especially with a layer of cheesecloth between. Could stand to be 1mm smaller diameter.
Its been great! It works just as I needed to mold and press fresh cheese.
