Hard Cheese Mold (Small)
This small hard cheese mold with follower will work with any of our presses and can be use to make up to a two pound cheese, from two gallons of milk. This sturdy mold can handle a pressing weight of up to 100 lbs.
The open bottom on this cheese mold provides ideal drainage. Since this mold does not need the amount of weight, for pressing, as larger cheese molds, it does not need a closed bottom to contain the curd mass.

Great for small cheeses
This mold is the perfect size for 2 pound cheeses. I like the open bottom because I feel like it allows the cheese to drain much faster and form a solid mass sooner. Thanks New England Cheese Making Supply Co!
Small Cheese mold
Although I have yet to make cheese in this mold, it seems to be made of quality material and should provide anyone using it with many years of service. I would recommend it for price and quality.
Small Hard Cheese Mold Perfect for 2 Gallon Batch
Works great. The size was perfect for my 2 Gallon batch of cheddar. My only (very minor) issue with the mold is the open bottom, which was only a problem because of my makeshift press (a pile of heavy stuff on a cutting board). When my weights would shift it could lift up one corner of the mold and cheese could squeeze out the bottom making a temporarily awkward shape . But, that was really more a press issue. Once I make my press I can't imagine it will be a problem in the future.
Transaction couldn't have gone smoother
