Plyban cheesecloth is a poly webbing used to line cheese molds when pressing curds. This thin material is less prone to wrinkle than bulkier cloths, which can help create a more uniform cheese surface.

I was hesitate buying this but I did and used it for the 1st time making manchego cheese. It isn't as thin as some reviews led me to think. But I love the fact that it is so easy to clean. The amount you receive is a nice big piece. I thought it was individual cuts, for some reason. I don't know how many times a piece will last but I love it!
Good for molding
It's really thin cloth but after two washes it tears off all long. However I like it for molding because it let very little marks on the cheese and no slots on it. Buy many if you make a lot of cheese, the price is good.
I first used this product at a cheesemaking class and thought it was great. I was told it was meant for professional and was only sold in very large quantities. Well I came home from that class and logged into my computer and of course found it at NEC. Love it!
I just took a cheese class in NJ, and this is the product they used for the class. We were all raving about this and wondered where to get it. Now I know. Much easier to handle than the butter muslin.
My favorite cheesecloth
I've been making goat cheese since the 1980's and this is my new favorite cheesecloth. I was skeptical about a plastic cheesecloth, but after reading that it does not stick, I ordered a bundle to try. It works great! I'm now on my third order of it. I know it says disposable, but I reuse it 5 -7 times before it starts to tear. I wash it good with the milk dishes, and sanitize it in vinegar between uses.
