Pros: Big diameter, 7" tall, stainless steel. Cons: Follower is very small and creates a 0.6" gap, surface inside is rough and unpolished compared to outside, has sharp edges, the cylinder was actually a sheet that was welded along a vertical seam and it's not a perfect circle because there is a bulge due to pressure of the sheet wanting to unbend. not worth the money, just buy the plastic molds with correctly sized followers.
It is very well made, very happy with it.
So easy to clean and the tall sides make it easy to fill with curds before pressing. If you only have one mold for hard cheese making, this is the one to have.
When I first started making cheese, I was intimidated at the price, but finally, I took the plunge. I am so glad that I did. This stainless steel mold set has held up well through countless batches of cheeses over the years. In fact, it still looks new. Clean up is easy.
This week I took a deep breath and attempted my first aged cheese. Having a background in microbiology, I am a bit hyper sensitive to sanitizing everything. So I spent the extra $ for this form. I knew it would be ideal for meeting my comfort level in sanitizing. I admit I did play a bit with my recipe, actually using what seemed like the best of several recipes I had, but isn't that the point of artisanal cheese... This form worked perfect for me. I used a single layer of cheese cloth to help wick away moister towards the drains. It was a textbook success! I could not have asked for a better outcome.
