Travel to Italy right from your kitchen! Whip up your own fresh mozzarella for Caprese salad and homemade ricotta for lasagna or just enjoy both as protein rich snacks. Bonus farmers' cheese makes it easy to dive in with a mini 20 minute batch of fresh cheese anytime. Try them all, or just make all mozzarella, you will have everything you need whatever you choose.
This kit has all the supplies you need to start making hard and soft cheeses with 1 gallon of milk or less!
• Same supplies and equipment used by professionals to make cheese
• Comes with the cultures, rennet, thermometer, cheesecloth, mold/press for 1 pound of cheese and recipe booklet to get you started – no frills, nothing to go to waste
• Comes with mesophilic and thermophilic cultures, each containing enough for 24 pounds of cheese! (You can make a mother culture from these cultures, so they can last a long time.)
• The mold is the best one to use as a form for soft cheeses and mozzarella, and as a press for harder cheeses like Colby and cheddar.
This cheese press is designed for making small batches of cheese at home and features all-stainless steel hardware.
Makes 1- to 2-Pound Wheel of Cheese: This cheese press will hold 2 gallons of milk and will make a 1- to 2-pound wheel of cheese.
No Additives or Preservatives: Homemade cheese is a healthier choice. Commercial cheeses may contain artificial colors or additives. Making cheese at home allows you to choose your own ingredients and decide what works best for you.
Creates Uniform Cheese: Pressing cheese is a process that expels remaining moisture from the curd and improves the final texture, creating a firm rind on the outside of the cheese and a smooth, uniform consistency within. Pressing gives the cheese the traditional wheel shape and readies it for aging.
Made to Last: The stainless steel base and cylinder with precision-machined all-metal gears inside a protective gearbox will keep you making cheese for years to come.
Easy Cleanup: The cylinder, base, and piston are all easily removed for cleanup. Dishwasher safe.
Easy to Use: Simply crank the handle to press out the whey and make a perfectly formed wheel of cheese.

New to making cheese? Or just don't have the tools you need? This kit contains tools for making cheese of any kind. And by purchasing this kit you are saving money over buying the tools individually.
These stainless steel tools are strong, last long, and won't tarnish or drop off other metals or coatings (as other metals do). These are the tools used at Homesteaders Supply to make all kinds of cheese, and they are the best for most situations. For example, the 5-quart colander is the perfect size. Cover it with cheesecloth, place it atop a large bowl, place your curds onto the cloth, and allow to drain. This works well for large or small curds, and for making soft or harder cheeses.
The Comark pocket thermometer measures 5 inches long with a 1-inch dial, so it's compact and lightweight for carrying in a jacket or apron pocket. It's designed to be water-resistant because it's made of stainless steel and has a tightly sealed, plastic lens that doesn't accumulate moisture during use. To keep the thermometer accurate and ensure the unit works correctly every time, users can adjust the calibration nut. This thermometer comes individually boxed.
