Excellent sized mat

The reed mat does exactly as intended. The reeds are close enough together to form a sturdy base to set your cheese on, but with enough space between to allow for efficient drainage. They are easy to roll up and store when not being used, tho I find that I am always making use of the mats. Cleaning is not overly difficult. I scrub it down with soap and water, let dry then sanitize it before storage. I will then sanitize it again just before use.

Not All Mats Are Born Equal

I have gone to my local .99 cents store, but surprisingly New England Cheesemaking Co mats are cheaper and much better made!

Love it!

Needed something to dry out a very soft cheese with a pepper crust (Belper Knoll - our favorite!) that would hold the cheese but let airflow underneath. This works perfectly! Makes for easy transfer from air drying on counter to cheese fridge/cave too without misshaping the cheese by handling.

1st time Ricotta Salata

The Reed Cheese Mat is strong, washes beautifully & dries fast. I placed my Cheese on the mat for 3 days before putting it into the Cheese Cave. Again I washed the mat in soapy bleached water, dried it and put it into a large zipper bag to save for the next use. It looks new!
