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.

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.

This mat was exactly as expected. I've used mine a few times to air dry some cheddars and it has worked great.
These great little mats fit perfectly under my cheeses as they age in my cheese cave. A quick scrub with baking soda and hot water, a boiling water rinse, air dry and we are good to re-use again Thumbs up!
Exactly as advertised
So far, great purchase for the price!
Perfect bamboo mat for cheesemaking. I've used it for three times now and it works great!
