Hard Cheese Mold (Small)
This small hard cheese mold with follower will work with any of our presses and can be use to make up to a two pound cheese, from two gallons of milk. This sturdy mold can handle a pressing weight of up to 100 lbs.
The open bottom on this cheese mold provides ideal drainage. Since this mold does not need the amount of weight, for pressing, as larger cheese molds, it does not need a closed bottom to contain the curd mass.

Small hard cheese molds
Worked great, used two for a 4 gal Tomme style with Flav54. Look forward to tasting in couple months.
Excellent! Very versatile for many different kinds of cheese. A little easier to use than the stainless because of the flexibility of the mold.
After struggling with a diy mold, and a small cheap mold I got on the popular shop-for-anything website, when I got this I was THRILLED at the difference in quality. It's heavy duty and will handle any weight you would need for this size of mold. I love that it's bottomless, so that when you want your cheese nice and smooth, you can remove the Cheesecloth at the end of pressing and there's no punch marks, or Cheesecloth marks. I will definitely buy a bigger one in the future when I can make larger cheese! If you make 2 gallon batches this mold is great to increase height, it helps in pressing evenly without making your curd into a pancake!
Great first mold
If you're just starting to make your own cheese or if you're a veteran, this a great mold. If I had only one mold this would be it. It's sturdy, easy to clean. Holds 2 gallons of milk curds! If you're just starting, 2 gallons of milk is easy to manage. That is a perfect recipe size for me, even still. I've been making cheese for 10 years!

Haven't used it yet, but comes highly recommended by my mentor and looks and feels exactly what I was expecting.
