Description

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.

Plastic Drying Mat

I like these so much better than the bamboo mats. They don't mold.

the right item for the job

Just like anything else, substitutions are futile. Use the right tool for the job. Yes we often use sushi mats in cheese making. Made of bamboo, they do great in moist/wet environment. However, it is my experience that the long exposure to the acidity doesn't do the sushi mat any good. So spend a few bucks, get the mat. Sushi mats aren't free either. And my little secret: I successfully made a reverse sushi roll with my new cheese mat. Keep smiling!

superb improvement for hard cheese drying

I use these little mats under my hard cheeses for the early bit of ripening and rind formation. They really do the job and keep the cheese off the board so that the air can circulate a little bit.
