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.



  • 9" x 9" Bamboo reed mat

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.

Works Great!

I've been using for several makes now. These work great as a non-slip drain mat, especially for pressing. Also using for air flow in my aging fridge. going to buy a couple more!

So Useful!

Wow...these reed mats are great! I first bought one to try it, now I have several! I like to put them under the cheese when It is ripening. They are great also to use when the cheese is being pressed.

Works great, but get a bunch

These work great, they are bamboo sushi mats actually. Get at least 4, because you'll want to flip your cheese. The recipe said 2, wasn't enough.
