This works great for queso fresco. It didn’t work quite as well when I made ricotta because the curd washed through the holes and I needed to line it with cheesecloth. (Perhaps my curd was just too small!). They are a little flimsy, but I find this useful when flipping the cheese because I can ensure that the corners fit correctly in the bottom of the mold.
I use this mold to replace cheesecloth in my chevre routine, and it is so easy! After my cheese is done draining, I just rinse the mold, put it on the top rack in my dishwasher, and BAM, it's sanitized and ready for the next batch!I think I might get a second one.
I am new to cheesemaking and found this little gem to dry my ricotta cheese...I am so excited to say the mold worked like a charm!
I'm a newbie ricotta cheesemaker and I have used this mold a few times since I received it. Very good for draining cheese and also creates a really nicely shaped cheese (post-draining). Perfect for making ricotta from 1 gallon of milk.
