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.

Pricey

I bought this to hold down my pickles and apples when fermenting but only got 2 out of the small piece. I guess next time I'll order the roll

Good mat!

The fine mesh has resulted in a much smoother rind on my bloomy white rind cheeses. The plastic material is undoubtedly better for proper food handling due to its non porous surface. It has helped me avoid unintended cross-inoculation between various cheese types.

Best Mat for Draining and Aging

I love these fine mesh cheese mats. I have some that I keep in their block form, but I also have many that have been cut to the interior diameter of cheese molds to help flipping cheese as they are draining, especially molds like Camembert that are open. They clean easy and are simple to sanitize before batches. They hold up very well and are super easy to store.

Very overpriced

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