Cheese Making Presses - The Best You'll Find

Posted by Steve Shapson on

After using other home cheese presses, I decided to make a model with major improvements. I've designed these presses to be easy-to-use and fast-to-clean. They are the best cheese presses for home-use on the market today.  

A very heavy-duty custom-made stainless steel spring cheese press will allow you to apply pressure 10-100 lbs.(4.5-43.3 kg.). Made of stainless steel and food grade materials. These presses are very affordable and very high quality. 

The support arm easily attaches and unattaches. No need to use cheese cloth with these presses. Excess whey is expelled at the base via a specially designed pitched channel to allow whey to spill off the press base in one direction. There are two sizes offered based on how much milk you will use to make your hard cheeses. The two gallon capacity cheese press can be used with up to two gallons of milk. 

The six gallon capacity cheese press can be used with 2-6 gallons of milk. Heavy duty food-grade plastic base utilizes pitched drainage channel for whey to neatly exit base.


EASY TO FOLLOW OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS & PREPARING THE CURDS FOR PRESSING. HEAVY DUTY SPRING TO APPLY 10-100 LBS. OF PRESSURE FOR MAKING HARD CHEESE.

1. Spring loaded cheese presses in either 2 and 6 gallon milk capacity. Available with plastic hoops or stainless steel.** Completely assembled.

Food-Grade Cheese Presses: Features 304 food grade stainless steel, pitched channel in base. Made locally in the USA.


**These presses include a Stainless steel ladle, Skimmer, Curd Cutter & Three Piece Spoons Set at no extra cost to you, making these presses a great value. Or, order them without these valuable accessories at a reduced cost.

Special Offer: FREE cheese cloth* with every press. A $9.97 value.


2. Dutch style lever press. Using the lever method to determine how much weight is applied to your cheese, these presses are the best Dutch Style presses made in the USA and abroad. Hand crafted in Wisconsin using hand selected Wisconsin hardwood Maple or Ash**. Two models available including one which can handle two hoops(moulds).

**We use wood from older growth trees that have been damaged and need to be cut down. The wood from these trees is much more dense and stronger than young trees. This wood has a lot more personality, color and tighter grain.
