I've used this once so far for brie. It makes a nice size round with a gallon of milk. Compared to using smaller molds, this one somehow resulted in a nice flat, even round (with other, smaller molds I've gotten ridges around the outside as the curds settle). Flipping the brie is always a challenge, and it wasn't super easy in this mold either. Still, I got it to flip without any major tears. I suppose the design on the bottom is nice but it'll be all covered with white mold anyway by the time the cheese is ready.
Produces a beautiful looking robiola cheese!
I really love these little baskets they are very sturdy and they leave such cute little impressions on the cheese. They are easy to clean and sanitize and they look like they will last a very long time
My husband is from Chihuahua, Mexico and he longed to make the special dry cheese (queso ranchero) for grating that his parents used to make. Our first attempt was not very successful, but it was certainly not the fault of the basket mold. The basket worked perfectly - It was the cheesemaking personnel that failed! We'll keep trying and enjoying using our little basket mold.
