    • Does this press have sufficient drainage means and pounds of pressure for all or most hard cheeses?

    • Where does the whey drain? I don't see any holes like the high end one shown on the site nor a way to capture the whey?
    • The presser plate forces the whey around the textured surface on the bottom plate. You may want to set the cheese press on a plate or shallow dish to catch the whey.

It works Review by Sam

It does the job but I wish the mold was see through so I could tell more easily when to spring contact is made and I should start counting rotations.

not impressed Review by cheese

This press is built solid enough but not big enough for most 2 gallon batches, the spring mechanism is hokey with inconsistent results,sometimes the plunger wants to tip inside making an uneven looking round, it is not worth the money your better off with a cheese mold and weights. DONT BUY

~Please contact customer support if your product is not working properly for recommended operations.

Very Good Review by Terri

I've owned this little press for 3 years now. I bought it in 2012 when I began my Cheese Making Adventure. The first cheese that I made did not turn out; it was a Cheddar. However, I believe that I made the mistake of "over-pressing" my curds. It was my first time, and the moisture that was coming out was "white" in color. I've learned now that I over pressed my curds causing the curds to be extremely dry and not KNIT together as they should had. That was in 2012.

I just completed my 2nd batch/round (2015). This time, I wanted to try a less "aged" cheese, so I decided on COLBY cheese! I think this turned out WONDERFULLY! I have photos of the whole process. This is a WONDERFUL LITTLE PRESS! I did start marking my center Follower Lever to mark my "Pressure" for 10,20,40 and 50 lbs for a 1 gallon of fresh milk or a 1 pound cheese round. If you are new to making cheese, try little guy!
