Tomme Cheese Mold $24.95
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.

A gateway to bigger wheels
I have been wanting to make bigger batches of cheese and when I found this in the NECSC catalog I found a way to do this. This is a well made mold (I bought the 4-5 lb size) that has drainage holes on the sides and bottom, and it will fit in my cheese press (that beautiful one sold by NECSC) nicely. Because the side are slightly slopped at the bottom, one can make a nicely curved edge to the wheel by flipping the wheel when rewrapping. Highly recommended!
Tomme Cheese Mold
Being new to the art of Cheese Making, I had no idea of what to purchase. Our instructor was kind enough to suggest your site and this mold was invaluable for class. We made cheeses with a gallon of milk and this fit perfectly. I will definitely purchase more of these plus additional sizes. Thank you!
My go-to mold
I use this mold for everything or all cheeses that I make: a big-sized brie (up to 1.5 gal milk), and tomme or gruyere cheeses of about 3.75 gal. In winter, draining is slow for brie so ideally I should limit to making a 1-gal size brie or max. 1.25 gal; but in any case, it's nice that I only have to deal with one mold to flip for bries (instead of multiple smaller molds) and, although I have to keep on filling in curds because the height it not sufficient, it serves me well. In summer, it drains well for bries.
Tomme Cheese mold
I used this to make a 3 pound wheel of ementhaller cheese
This mold is a great size for a 4 gallon cheese, making a less cumbersome wheel than my deluxe medium mold from NECSC. The sides are tapered, but it is slight and you don't notice it in the final cheese. It seems to be good quality, and I expect to get a lot of use out of it for many years to come!
