Description

This fine mesh ripening mat for cheese making is used when air drying a variety of cheese, especially soft, mold ripened cheese including Chevre, Brie and Camembert. Because this mat has a fine mesh, it will leave less texture on the cheese surface, and is less likely to pull mold as cheese is flipped when aged.

Using this mat will allow whey to drain and air to circulate when cheese is draining, air drying and aging.

Very overpriced

I should have bought a bamboo mat. Would not recommend.

Cheese Mat

These work great for drying cheese wheels fresh out of the mold prior to waxing and aging. They wash easily and I dip them in boiling water briefly to sterilize. Nice handy mats.

excellent

This is a great draining mat. Whether draining on a cutting board slowly or on a sieve, this works well and is super easy to clean up!

cheese ripening mat

I really like these mats better than bamboo mats. They are easier to clean and sterlize. I use them to air dry and age my cheeses in my 'cave'. I got the large version and cut it up to fit my shelves. The cheese rests on top of it.
