8 Reviews For "Hard Cheese Mold with Pressing Plate 4 lb. Capacity"

  1. Works great under pressure :)

    by running duck on 11 Mon,2013


    This press worked great to make our 2 pound block of cheddar we made (from 2 gallons of whole milk). It was easy to add weight (50 lbs) and the cheese came out uniformly round. We are glad we bought it!

  2. High Quality!

    Not flimsy at all. Plastic is thick and durable. The follower plate is also very thick and rigid. The follower is just a flat plate and does not have any type of "handle" or outset walls to hold a press foot, can, or whatever you want to use. So if you're only making 1-2lbs of cheese, you'll have to make sure your press is able fit down inside the cylinder or use a can as a spacer or something. It has a bottom with holes and also 6 little nubs on the bottom which keep the bottom off the counter and allow liquid to escape. As was said in the Q&A, the diameter of the cylinder changes maybe 1/4" from bottom to top. The follower goes ALMOST all the way to the bottom. 1 lb loads could be done with this.

  4. A beautiful mold

    by Terry on 05 Sun,2016


    These are Mad Millie cheese molds. I make home made cheeses weekly. These molds are by far my favorite. Heavy duty with plenty of draining holes. Closed bottom. The follower (pressing plate) fits well. These are out of New Zealand and are harder to find. The BEST OF THE BEST!!!

  5. Just the right size

    by nocookie4u on 06 Fri,2016


    I have been struggling with cheesemaking with a too-small mold. This one is perfect, has a bottom and a pressing plate is sturdy and easily lined and filled. So glad I bought it.

  6. My favorite cheese press

    by Debi on 09 Fri,2016


    Yes press is a great size. It will hold up to a 4 gallon vat size. I uses most for a 2 gallon vat. I highly recommend this cheese mold form!

  7. Great product...perfect size for not huge batches!!

    by Donna on 06 Sat,2016


    Looks sturdy enough for the use I expect to put it through!!

  8. Decent size Mold

    by RatherBBBoating on 06 Sun,2016


    I have used this mold 3 times now. Two hard cheese and one semi-hard. On the hard cheeses (press at 40lbs) and two gallons of milk (1.8 lbs of cheese) it is just a little to big. On the semi-soft cheese and 3 gallons of milk (press at 8 lbs and 3.2 lbs of cheese) it is about the right size.

    • Hi,
      Does this mold has a base? or is it baseless? Also, it the Diameter at the base is tha same as at the top?
    • Yes, this one has a base. The "large mold for hard cheese" on our site is the one that doesn't have a bottom to it. The top and the bottom are practically the same, with maybe a 1/4" difference.

    • How does this mold differ from the traditional cheese press? Can it be used independently to make hard cheese? Can you explain? Thank you. (:
    • This product is not a cheese press itself. You place the curds in the mold, put the pressing plate on top and put the whole thing in the press. If you want to use this without a press, here is a link that might be useful: http://gnowfglins.com/2011/01/19/diy-cheese-press/​

    • Can two of these be stacked to press two rounds of cheese??
      Is the pressing plate easily taken out when pressed down quite a ways?
      Thank you!
    • Hello!

      No, they wouldn't be able to be stacked as the wood or plastic follower needs to be have contact with the press and the pressing plate for each mold.

      The plates are fairly easy to get out, not as easy as the tome mold style though.

      We have a new product up today that makes a lot more cheese if that is what you are interested in: http://www.culturesforhealth.com/large-hard-cheese-shaping-mold.html. It will do a block of cheese 5-10 pounds in size. We don't have a picture up yet, but it looks almost identical to this (only bigger) http://www.culturesforhealth.com/tome-cheese-mold-and-lid.html. These ones have lids/presses that are easier to remove.

      Hope that helps!

    • hello, i see that this has up to a 4# capacity, but what would be the smallest # i could do with it? would it work for a 2# cheese?
    • The pressing plate in this mold goes down to about an inch from the bottom of the mold, so you could probably make as little as one pound of cheese in it.
