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.

Go on and get you one.

The cheese mat I purchased here arrived Wednesday of last week. I'm already using using it and aging a brick cheese on it. Working like a charm and I'm glad to add it to my cheese making supplies.

Durable and efficient

Very pleased with this mat. Looks way more durable than other products, yet priced the same. Drains very well when air-drying cheese.

The reed mat is actually for sushi rolling but works well-letting air get to the bottom of my farmhouse cheddar. Multi-tasking products are awesome.

Works well

This mat is wonderful. When we first started our Gouda journey, we kept our cheese in a wine cooler set to 50 degrees. We moved to the cold storage and so we bought the mat. It does well with circulation and has helped dry the cheese out well.
