Reed Cheese Mat

I love it. It's natural and pliable. It drains well. I boiled one of mine and it held up without any problem. It can easily be brushed clean and sterilized.

Cheese gets in between reeds. Rather have a plastic one with round or square holes that can be sterilized.

Perfect for aging cheese!

These are perfect for aging your home made cheeses. Allows air to circulate. Simply sprayed with vinegar to minimize mold, I now use them all of the time and this website has the best price around.

Reed Cheese Mat -

This mat works great for pressing, air drying, and aging my cheeses. It is easy to clean and allows for good drainage. Way better than the straw potholder I was using as a makeshift mat before.
