    • Is this a mad Millie cheese press? If not, who makes ie and do you have a picture of ir?

    • What size it the mold? Are other size molds available to be purchased separately to use with this press?
    • The press plate is 5 3/8in. in diameter and the depth of the container is 5 1/2in.​ Any of our molds that are smaller than 5.5" high and 5 3/8" in diameter should work okay with this press as long as you have a pressing plate or use the one that comes with the press.​

    • How many different pressure settings are on the cheese press?
    • The pressure settings go from 1 to 20KG or 2 to 44LBS. The unit has markings at 5, 10, 15, and 20KGs. There are also smaller marks for each 1KG increment.

  • From Nathan B at 4/11/13 10:52 AM
    • So will the pressed cheese have a hole in the center of it from the bolt? Or am I misunderstanding how this works?
    • The pressing plate is flat on the bottom with the adjustment apparatus on top, no hole in the cheese.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Tim at 6/18/13 11:55 AM
    • Is this press designed to hold the whey from 1 or 2 gals of milk?
    • This is a 2 litre hard cheese mold and will fit curds from 6 litres of milk. The whey will drain out through the holes.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No

    • A follow up to Tim's question.

      I do see that this will fit curds from 6 litres of milk - which is just over 1.5 gallons.

      Many cheese recipes call for 2 gallons. *WILL* this be able to accommodate that bit more, or is this unsuitable for such recipes?
    • A 2-gallon batch size would be a bit too much for this unit.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Ann at 12/20/13 10:40 PM
    • This maximum pressure setting on this press is 44 pounds. Your cheddar cheese recipe requires a 50 pound press. So this press would not be suitable for making cheddar cheese, or can your cheddar cheese recipe be altered - longer press at the lighter weight?
    • This is a great press for the beginning cheesemaker. It is not quite sturdy enough for making hard cheeses. For that, we recommend our Deluxe Cheese Press: http://www.culturesforhealth.com/deluxe-cheese-press.html
