Patiently waiting to taste

The kit contains almost everything to make a variety of cheeses. The instructions are good for a beginner. The cheese basket lacks a follower and plates, saucers, bowls were either too large, or left depressions in first cheese. So finally hppened on a wooden flat bottomed salad bowl for my next cheese. For aging the instuctions say to wax the cheese which was also not included. Creativity came with making a homemade cheese press and weights (with help of bathroom scale). And created my own molds. But I have been making cheese the entire month since I received the kit. I am hooked on making cheese unfortunately I haven't tasted any since they are all in the aging process. Today a triple creme cheese is being made and I will have opportunity to taste that in a couple weeks.

New cheese maker

Just got after waiting about 10 days my Basic Cheese Making Kit which was a blast to use and learn how to make cheese. I always thought I would like to make cheese because I love it and grew up hand milking cows on a farm. The kit made it easy and was complete so it was easy to get started. I am now making cheese every week and can’t wait to try new types. The kit was a great way to get started.

Love it!

A super fun activity to do with or without kids. The kit comes with everything you need, and recipes with very clear instructions. Our mozzarella and ricotta turned out delicious, and we are eagerly awaiting our aging cheddar!

Awesome Cheese Kit

I loved my new cheese kit! Made cottage cheese and it came out wonderful on the first try. Looking forward to Monterey Jack next. Cheese making has been on my to-do list for some time now after a coworker shared her cheddar. I was hooked!
