Dutch Style Cheese Press with Whey Drainage Tray/Insert
Cheese making is not only a chemistry but also an art where you transform your milk into a variety of flavor, texture and artisan cheeses. Bring the art of cheese making into your home with this beautiful crafted Dutch style cheese press. We choose damaged old growth trees for sustainability. This results in cheese presses with more character, a variety of wood color and a tighter grain. After all, while function and durability are the main components of any cheese press, you also want a cheese press and homemade cheese kit that fits your kitchen aesthetic and that looks beautiful. No tools necessary for assembly other than a Phillips Head Screwdriver which is included.
You will love using this new Heavy-Duty Dutch Style cheese press for making cheese at home.
Our Dutch cheese press has a lever arm capable of holding five gallons of water; this is up to 250 pounds of force! As a cheesemaker, it is important to note that you need much less pressure. So, no doubt, this cheese press is going to give you more than enough pressure to get the job done. Hang different weights on the lever arm to maximize the pressure. The 34-inch lever arm allows you to exert the force with complete ease. You do not have to play guessing games with the amount of weight that you use, allowing you to rid yourself of lumpy or crumbling cheeses.
Our presses are made in Wisconsin of hand selected hardwood maple or ash and are designed and built by a local expert wood craftsperson. Our Dutch presses are built to be the best in the market and they offer 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 Dutch Style Press is a great value for any home and small artisan cheesemaker. You won't find a better made or more intelligently designed Dutch style cheese press.
There is no easier way to press cheese. We design our models specifically for your convenience and pleasure. We build our DIY cheese press with durable hardwood, that not only allows you to experience quality, but to also experience a cheese press that is going to last.

Nice press, great service
Posted by Unknown on 11th Oct 2019
Well build solid press that, according to Steve, can handle over 150 lbs pressing force - the most I will need. Would give the press a 4.5 rating, had a minor issues with it which was resolved to my complete satisfaction in a reasonable time, so rated 5 for superior customer service. Expensive, but based on comparison to other presses online, seems to be worth the price.

No more guess work when it comes to the weights! My only regret is that I did not buy one of these years ago! Very nice people to deal with.
Worth the Money

The only complaint is that the four screw holes were too tight and needed some adjustment. Otherwise everything works as it should. The press is easy to use, seems sturdy, and will likely serve us for years to come. Note from Steve/thecheesemaker: thanks for the feedback. I have made note and inspected all presses to insure the holes are adequate for using a hand screwdriver.
Great Cheese Press

This press was easy to put together and worked great. A better manual for use would help those who are not mechanically inclined but most should have no problem. It turned out a lovely perfectly rounded cheese.
Wonderful Press Easy to Use

I just received this press this week. tried it twice and have two perfect wheels of cheese aging in my cheese cave. It was super easy to set it up and to determine weight at each level with a simply scale. once I determined weights i wrote it on the sides of the press. The amount of weight was perfect. No more lumpy cheese. No more crumbling because i couldn't 'guess ' at the amount of weight i was using.
I appreciate the quick shipment and support i received from steve while getting it right. Thank you steve. The best customer service you will ever find.
