Round Ball of Goodness
I purchased this to make Edam, but instead I made a large batch of Parmesan and quickly realized I had to many curds. So I quickly sterilized the new Edam mold and did my first pressing. Very impressed with the overall quality of this mold. Especially the fact that the follower construction is so sturdy, it is designed in such a way that it has a natural handle which aids in removing from the mold. Allot of molds can be a bit challenging to remove the followers if pressed for any length of time. This mold is very thick and sturdy. Although I purchased it to make Edam, turns out it works great for just about any cheese recipe. Very happy with this mold. Nerd Curd Jim!
Wow made the cheese into a ball shape, very cool
Not what I expected
This is a very well made mold. The structure reminds me of what I use to use in a large cheesemaking facility. The only con to the whole mold is that it does not give me the shape that I want. The cheese comes out as a bowl. Not as a traditional Gouda shaped cheese. Flat on the top and bottom and round on the sides. I’ve tried 2 pounds of cheese, and four pounds of cheese, and the shape is not desirable.
As others have described, the follower on this one pound mold is incapable of properly pressing curds for a uniformly shaped finished cheese. If you want or don’t mind a bell shaped cheese, order on. Otherwise, select something different.
I was amazed at the speed I got my item and the quality of it. I like it very much. A little issue with the liquid sitting on top and not all draining off through the bottom, but it is totally useful and would definitely tell others to get one and use the heck out of it.
