Manchego Cheese Mold
This Manchego cheese mold will impart the traditional and unique, woven basket design, commonly associated with Manchego cheese, onto the surface of finished cheese.
Each mold includes a base, beautifully patterned liner and follower. The liner is approximately 1/4" thick.
The pattern within these molds is based off of the original woven grass forms that were traditionally used in Spain. Once formed, this beautiful pattern will be imprinted on the entire surface of the finished cheese.

This makes the prettiest cheese. It's worth every penny. I hardly use my plain mold anymore.... I used the basket weave mold on a Ubriaco (drunken cow, a cheese soaked in red wine) and it was freakishly pretty. Then on a Manchego (Duh, its a Manchego mold) and rubbed the finished/pressed cheese in Olivie oil and smoked Paprika. Wow. My FB page went crazy when I posted that pic. Today I'm making a Sage Derby with it-- expect the green will be similarly spectacular.
It's an extra heavy duty mold and it gets that classy basket look into the cheese. Removable insert for easy cleaning, keep the smooth end up. Only downside isn't major, but it's too big for the stainless steel drip tray, and just barely too big for the wooded Dutch press.
It was a little difficult to pull out at first because it was brand new lol, but now I'd prefer it over any other mold I have as far as making a firm cheese goes. Its beautiful!
I finally made a cheese I could use this mold for. It’s a brick cheese but I decided to try this mold with it anyway. The result was flawless. I can’t wait to see how the smear grows with the basket pattern. Super excited. My new favorite mold. Wish I could use it for everything. I love my manchego cheese mold!!
I love my Manchego cheese Mold so much that I bought all three sizes! It is amazing in that it requires no cheese cloth AT ALL! and the cheese comes easy out of the mold when it is time. Besides that, the shape is spectacularly beautiful! I really have not used any of my other molds since I got these. So delighted and can't recommend them enough! Thank you!
