    • 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.

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!
