Round Plastic Follower
This polypropylene follower (separating disc) can be set into a round cheese mold, on top of the curds, to give a smooth, flat surface for the follower and weights to rest upon when pressing cheese. This follower fits nicely into our Basic Kit Cheese Mold.

Good value at $3.95! So far, I've only used it once to lightly press some ricotta. Although I only used light finger pressure, this follower is substantial (about 1/4 inch thick and could clearly take moderate to heavy weight without deforming. I'm a completely novice home cheesemaker and have been happy with all of the supplies I've purchased from New England Cheesemaking Supply Company.
I used the follower with 50 lbs of pressure. Worked like a charm. Love all the products I have purchased.
Having the round plastic follower made our experience with getting started making our own cheese simple and easy!
Good help to provide a smooth texture to your cheese after pressing. Easy to wash/disinfect, and good/resistant material. Worth it.
