This is a good quality mold and the price is right. It withstands a lot of weight on it. Good Buy.
Follower too large
While I love this mold and use it almost daily, the follower was just a little too large and could not be placed in the mold when cheesecloth was present. I used a rotary tool to shave down the edges and now it works great. One of the few molds that will work with more than a 4 pound wheel of cheese. Very sturdy--it should last forever!
Sturdy but warped
This is a nice sized, sturdy mold, but the top of the cylinder is slightly oval and that makes it really hard to start a straight press. Once the cheese is pressed down a bit it is fine.
Sturdy Cheese Mold
This mold is very sturdy, has a bottom with drainage holes and large enough to hold an 8 pound cheese. I made a 4 gallon colby and it filled it not quite half full. My only problem was getting weights to stay balanced on it. I initially used a 3 gallon bucket with sugar bags in it but they where top heavy and kept toppling over. I have since decided to use weight lifting weights next time so hopefully they stay balanced better. The follower fits well, not to tight or loose and was easy to remove. Cheese came out easy as well. Easy to clean.
I ordered the wrong item
When the large mold came in I released it was way too big for my need. I called and the polite person who answered the phone explained how to send it back with no hassle. Thanks again.
