  1. Draining Tray

    Posted by Ann on 23rd Jun 2019

    First, service and professionalism was stellar! The tray really helped me with my two new cheese making adventures. It is the perfect size, quality made and works like a dream. Instead of whey pooling and trying to keep things level as the cheese is in the press, I can drain the cheese with ease and not worry about the process. Highly recommend this.

  2. Perfect!

    This is the perfect accessory for a cheese press, to move the whey out and away from the press. Well made, easy to use. I love it!

  3. just what i needed

    Posted by Barb Bond on 10th Dec 2017

    I make 4 rounds of camembert every other week and struggled with ways to drain the molds at the very soft-curd stage. I got two draining trays with optional inserts. Each holds two 5" molds perfectly, and they fit side-by-side on the edge of my sink. I couldn't be happier with this setup!

  4. Awesome!

    Bought this tray with small mold per recommendation of our milk supplier and experienced cheese maker. worked great and liked that if fit right in sink. Farmer's cheese came out wonderful. Going to try other cheeses next. Note fast shipping time.
