Medium Mesh Cheese Mat
This medium mesh cheese mat can be used in many different ways when pressing, drying and aging cheese.
Placing this mat underneath open bottom cheese molds, encourages draining, in cheese like a blue, where the curds are large and firmer. For closed bottom molds without feet, this mat can be placed underneath, to elevate the mold allowing whey to drain from the bottom of the cheese mold. Placed under cheese, when aging, allows air to properly circulate around the entire cheese.
- Medium mesh polypropylene cheese mat | 4 x 4 mm

Mat should be boiled, to sterilize, before each use.
After use, rinse in cold water to remove any curd/cheese, then wash with not water and a neutral alkaline cleanser or dairy wash. Commercial detergents are not recommended.
If needed, soak mat in a wash solution before cleaning.
If mat retains any odor after cleaning, hang outdoors in the sun, this is the traditional method used in Europe.

Very versatile. Happy with product. Bought another in fact.
Nice size mat and it fits perfectly in my cheese cave.
My hubby made me a wood cheese press for my birthday but didn’t put in any drainage channels for the whey. These mats worked perfectly tokeep the mold and cheese out of the whet while it was being pressed. Thank you for such a great product.
