Reed Cheese Mat
This reed cheese mat is used when air drying cheese, especially soft, mold ripened cheese. Using this mat will allow whey to drain and air to circulate when cheese is draining, air drying and aging.
- 9" x 9" Bamboo reed mat
Mat should be boiled, to sterilize, before each use.
After use, rinse in cold water to remove any curd/cheese, then wash with not water and a neutral alkaline cleanser or dairy wash. Commercial detergents are not recommended.
If needed, soak mat in a wash solution before cleaning.
If mat retains any odor after cleaning, hang outdoors in the sun, this is the traditional method used in Europe.

I love it! It works well and I like the natural look and feel.
Hard to beat this mat. Easy to clean, well constructed, and does exactly what you'd expect. Cheese did not stick and evenly dried. There's enough air flow to dry properly. Great little mat.

Love the cheese mats! I have used mine several times!
This the second cheese Matt I purchased. I was getting mold on my cheeses from using the same Matt when I was flipping my cheddars during drying. Having a second one has eliminated that completely!
Great quality and wonderful price
