This set included everything I needed at a reasonable price, cheaper than buying the ingredients separately. The thermometer has small 5F increments so not really all that useful if you want to be accurate, and the mold/basket is tapered, so the optional follower that I purchased is not really useful unless you want curds squirting up and out of the sides
A great place to start!
I have been interested in making my own cheese for some time now. This is a great place to start. I found the instructions easy, and the kit had everything I needed. What a great gift this would make for someone. I would buy this again, even before going on to more complicated recipies.
My new passion begins!
These kits (we bought 3 so far!) were so perfect for any cheese-beginner! The directions are clear and the kits are complete. After our first few cheeses, we have caught the passion and are now making more complicated cheeses... but it all started here!!!
Everything I expected in the kit
The kit included everything I expected which was all the supplies and instructions that were easy to follow. I made cottage cheese the first time out with whey ricotta right afterwards. The cottage cheese turned out delish, the ricotta didn't really turn out well because I couldn't heat it to 195 without boiling and there was no real yield ( I got 1/2 cup per gallon of whey when adding 1 pint of whole milk per gallon). It was really fun and gave me a big appreciation to how easy it is to buy the stuff at the grocery store because it takes a LONG time start to finish to make cheese. However, I have access to beautiful creamline milk and feel better knowing the milk that is going into my cheese. I am going to make each cheese in the order listed in the instruction book. It's easy if you aren't scared and have some experience in the kitchen. You will have to know if you are supposed to leave the cheese mixture at room temperature, if it needs to stay heated, or if you are supposed to put it in the frig and let it work there. I guessed and left it on the counter with no heat or refrigeration. It worked out fine.
