About This Product
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.
