The mold fits the follower so nice and tight you can skip the cheese cloth.
I use this mold the most. I have pressed with it a few times and it holds up great, expels the whey, even though it seemed to not have enough holes. I'm very happy with this mold.
This is my first mold, other than what came with the beginner kit, and I’m really happy with it so far. The only real problem is it’s just a bit too tall for a 2 gallon cheese, I just wrapped a block of wood in tinfoil and use that on top of the follower. I guess I’m gonna have to step up to bigger cheeses.
I really love this mold. It has become my go-to for all 3-gallon cheeses. The follower is a bit overly tall, but I understand its design. It will probably enable the mold to work with smaller amounts of milk than 3 gallons. The main feature that I like is that its sides are very smooth, so smooth, in, fact, that at the end of pressing you can put the cheese into the mold without a cheese cloth and, with a little pressure, get the wrinkle marks to smooth out. As one reviewer said: "Just buy it!"
This mold is the perfect size for home cheesemaking. Built to last I could stand on it if I wanted to. I bought two!
