Real Cheese Equipment & Accessories

Our favorite cheese making molds, thermometers, waxes, cheesecloth, and more for making beautiful cheese at home.
Equipment & Accessories
  • Cheesecloth

    A looser weave than our butter muslin, this 100% cotton cheesecloth is great for wrapping cheeses and draining whey from all sorts of cultured foods.
    • Use it for: wrapping homemade cheeses.



    "Very thin -- and yes, that is the point, but..."

    Especially for straining out yogurt and cream cheese, I strongly prefer an unfolded cloth diaper. This has very very thin material, it does not hold up to washing or re-use -- and as such, I found it expensive too. The unfolded cloth diapers I use instead are a good deal thicker, and yet still maintain the bird-eye weave for good draining, are hemmed, and can be re-used hundreds of times. Because that product is available in other places, I find this one a poor expenditure. I'm sorry. :(

    "Great products"

    Spoke with one of your great people there after having some issues with my products. She was more helpful then could possibly be. Great place to shop!

    - Kathy

    "the packaging is much more eco friendly."

    the packaging is much more eco friendly than the new boxes the cultures come in. I liked that.


  • Butter Muslin

    This tight-weave cloth is ideal for draining whey from many cultured foods and as a breathable jar cover. One of our favorite products.
    • Use it for: draining whey from cheese, yogurt, butter, and more.

    Butter Muslin


    "Good quality"

    I bought this to stain my yogurt. It works great, and you get a lot of fabric!

    "Exactly What I needed "

    I purchased this with the cream cheese starter. It was perfect and exactly what I needed. Cleaned and sterilized it after use and ready to do the next batch.

    - Robin

    "Great product "

    I've use the muslin several times now it washes up nicely and keeps its shape well.

    "the packaging is much more eco friendly"

    the packaging is much more eco friendly than the new boxes the cultures come in. I liked that.


    "Great product!"

    Excellent for straining almond milk. I like the strength of the material and that it can be washed/reused.

    - Nita


    The performance of the butter muslin was Excellent. My only suggestion: larger in one dimension would be safer. A double-thickness is recommended for cream cheese, and when the cloth is folded in half, it becomes a little narrow. I was concerned the cheese might spill over the sides (it didn't).

  • Pocket Test Thermometer

    Perfect for making cheese, yogurt or checking the temperature of your sourdough bread and more. This thermometer is a cultured kitchen workhorse.
    • Use it for: making cheese, yogurt, checking the temperature of sourdough bread, and more.

    Pocket Test Thermometer



    I ordered the basic thermometer, but it turned out to be a mini thermometer. Very tiny and dials are hard to read! Response from CFH: The details section note this thermometer has a 1-inch dial display and is 5 inches long.

    - MAY

    "Basic it is"

    There is nothing fancy, just a "Basic Thermometer." If you don't need accuracy or long reach it will do a fine job.

    - Chugchug

    "Easier than what I was using."

    When I decided to make my own yogurt, I was using a candy thermometer -- something I already had. This is much easier to position and read.

    - BuckIrose


    The thermometer works but disagrees with my other thermometers. I have two others that show to add starter at a lower temperature. I don't know which is most accurate. Also, the round top dial is very small and hard to read. Response from CFH: Thermometers can be calibrated. Please contact Customer Support for advice or for replacements for defective products.

  • Small Ricotta Basket and Container

    Specially designed to help the cheese breathe well so that it is light, sweet and moist.

    Small Ricotta Basket and Container


    "Small Ricotta Basket Containers work great"

    I purchased these after visiting the gourmet kitchen supply store in town. They had one basket identical to these for $20.00. I took the basket to the counter and asked the clerk if the pricing was correct and she confirmed. I told her that it was a crazy outrageous price. Came home and googled and found this site. The price was great! I would definitely recommend buying these if you are making Ricotta Cheese. I have tried home made baskets and strainers and these by far were the easiest and cheapest I could find.

  • Hard Cheese Mold with Pressing Plate

    A robust yet conveniently sized mold for hard cheeses that also comes with a pressing plate for an all-in-one solution.

    Hard Cheese Mold with Pressing Plate


    "Excellent quality and easy to use."

    I also own the larger 4 lb. mold to this one and they are both excellent molds. Good quality, does well under pressure and they drain extremely well. The fact that it has a bottom make them a lot easier to use than my bottomless hard cheese molds.

    "A beautiful mold"

    This is a Mad Millie cheese mold. Closed bottom with follower. These molds are harder to find since they come out of New Zealand. I was so excited when a friend told me I could purchase this mold on this website. Very heavy duty with plenty of draining holes. The best of the best!! I am ordering 2 more of these today. A great find!

    - Terry

    "This mold is awesome!"

    I love the size of the cheese made in this mold - it's a very pleasing shape. The mold itself is well made - I may have to get a couple more!!

    Cotton Bag for Making Cheese


    "Sturdy and well made. "

    Sturdy and well made. I've only had it for a short time, but so far I'm pleased with it. It works nicely for draining our kefir cheese. It can be a little hard to get some of the dry bits out of the inside of the bag, but turning it inside out helps.

    - Me

    "great idea and great price"

    love it! worked great

    - Nanny

    "Good solid product"

    So far this bag has held up well to regular use, it's solidly made and I think it will hold up well for years to come.

    "Excellent for making whey"

    Excellent for making whey from Kefir

    - Dennis

    "A must have need to make cheese"

    Not good by itself. Must use in combination with the Butter Muslin for perfection. Very Strong and good filtration. No sign of weakness yet.

    - SY

    "Necessary to filter kefir whey from curd..."

    Excellent use, perfect fit for the bag i bought from this web, and good thing I bought it. I didn't know this was necessary.

  • Curd Knife

    This 12-inch stainless steel blade reaches the bottom of deep pots to cut cheese curd.
    • Use it for: cutting cheese curd

    Curd Knife


    "Love it"

    We started making cheese about a year ago when I retired. At first I used an icing spreader to cut the curd. That was fine with 1 gallon of milk but when we started making large amounts it became more difficult. I love the length, the quality and find it to be a good value for the cost.

    "Reasonable price, Good Tool For The Job."

    Good Tool for the job. I purchased this for making mozzarella. Nice sized, decent quality for the price.

    - JohnDoranNY

    "Good quality, will be useful"

    I purchased the curd knife to use when I make cottage cheese. I haven't made it yet, but the knife appears to be long enough to be useful, and of good quality. It is something I have never seen in a store. I am pleased with the size, quality, and affordability, and I would not hesitate to purchase it again.

    I used this thermometer for the first time last week and it was off by over 20 degrees! Not happy with the product at all.

    - Sarra

    "Good quality"

    I ordered this thermometer because I had a coupon. This is my first digital thermometer. I like it because it is waterproof. I use it to make yogurt and kefir. In the past, I have bought Taylor brand standard thermometers and found them to be good quality. I'm expecting this one to hold up well also.

  • Chevre Mold

    For shaping chèvre cheese.

    Chevre Mold


    "simple and easy"

    It's simply a cup with small drainage holes, but works well for its intended purpose. After draining chevre in cheesecloth for 3+ hours, I fill these cups, weight them, and set them over drainage mats overnight and they produce nice cylinders of cheese by morning.

    - hana

    "Just OK - muslin better for chevre"

    Produced a wet curd even after 16 hours of drainage. Holes are too small for chevre purposes. Response from CFH: Our Cheese Expert recommends lining this mold with a cheesecloth and adding a jar of water on top as a weight.

  • Feta Cheese Mold

    You'll get a fabulous authentic look with this traditonal square mold for making feta.

    Feta Cheese Mold


    "For any soft cheese"

    They are very good for making any kind of soft cheese. Good quality they come in single packages. I'm buying more.

    - Davide

    "Why a mold for feta anyhow?"

    Authentic look? The mold may be good for draining feta and other cheeses, but feta traditionally is cut into pieces before it's salted and brined. Response from CFH: Some people like to brine their feta whole...it makes for a pretty presentation if you're selling it or giving it as a gift. The molded feta also looks beautiful when coated with nuts, berries or herbs. A molded feta is much easier to ship than a jar filled with cubes and brine. There are many reasons for offering this product, but the most important one is that we want our customers to be able to find what they want. If someone wants molded feta, we want to make sure that we have a mold for them. :)
