About This Product
You will love using our Dual Cheese Dutch Style Press- Heavy Duty Pro-Series. This press can press one or two cheeses at the same time. The Dual-Plunger Adapter can be changed out without any tools. Simply place it under the plunger and now you have a press which will press two cheeses at one time. Or you can press one cheese at one time. Made in Wisconsin of hand selected hardwood maple or ash. Our press is designed and built by a local expert wood crafts-person. Not only it is the Best Dutch style Press on the market, it offers more leverage. Marked notches on the lever arm offer 3,4,5 and 6 times weight. That means just one plastic jug of water weighing 8.35 lbs. can exert nearly 50 lbs. pounds of weight on your cheese. Add another jug or any other weights and this press can exert more weight. The Dual Cheese Dutch Style Press Pro-Series is a great value for any home and small artisan cheesemaker. You won't find a better made or more intelligently designed Dutch style press.
