About This Product





If you're tired of the mess and the slow process of ladling out whey from your kettle, vat or warmer when making your own cheese, our new Whey Pump & Strainer is a dream come true. It took us only 45 seconds to pump out a gallon(3.78liters) of whey. The Whey Pump is very gentle on your curds and pumping out even that last little amount of whey was easy. The Whey Strainer sits on the bottom of your kettle keeping curds from entering the Whey Pump. After the whey is pumped out, and the Long Mould Strainer is lifted out, you can still pump out any remaining whey easily without clogging the Whey Pump. Sanitize the Whey Pump by running through some Star San Sanitizer through it prior to use, then pump some warm water through it for easy cleaning. We include two AA batteries which will last for many batches(depending on your batch size). The Long Mould Strainer can be used as a form to shape Chèvre logs.

Note:  The video and photo shows the formerly available Stainless Steel Whey Strainer which we've discontinued and replaced with the much more efficient Long Mould Strainer.

    Whey Pump and Strainer

    Posted by Joann Osborne on 21st Jul 2020

    Just getting back into cheese making after a 5 year layoff and treated myself to a new gadget. This pump is fast, efficient and mess free. Even cleaning inside the hose is easy by using the pump in soapy/clean water. I make cheese once a week and it is totally worth the reasonable price for this gadget.

    Works Great

    Posted by Richard L. on 25th Apr 2019

    This is a great tool for removing whey to curd level for the washed curd type of cheeses. It does require a little bit of dexterity because you need to keep curd from pump mouth using a screen of small mold. Three hands make this a breeze. I clean it with soapy water, rinse, 2nd rinse with vinegar solution then air dry. So far so good.

    A great whey separation tool

    Posted by John on 26th Mar 2018

    I used to dread the task of whey/curd separation and the mess that process created. The whey pump revolutionized that process and saved hours of time separating the curds and whey. The process has greatly improved with the long mold strainer. That was a welcome companion piece to the whey pump. I would encourage anyone to purchase the long mold strainer to replace the original strainer.

    Excellent for saving the whey

    Posted by Curtis on 14th May 2017

    I use this to vacuum the whey into another pot or to set aside in a bain-marie and I'm all set to make some whey ricotta.

    only wish for one small improvement

    Posted by Marcey on 30th Nov 2015

    Very fast, works great, only thing is the clip on the wand should go the other way so I could "attach" it to the side of my vat, occasionally it goes crazy on me and I spray the room! I am sure I will get the hang of it with more uses.

    My life just got easier

    Posted by Sue on 2nd Aug 2015

    The whey pump and straining arrived the day before I was due to make a new batch of cheese so it got used immediately. How easy it was to drain the whey from the curds. We were able to keep the whey and have been mixing it with a protein powder for a delicious drink. Before we always had to drain the whey off in the sink where it just went down the drain. Also would like to mention that it took only six days from initiating the order on the internet to delivery in Ireland. Amazing service!!

    This is the best thing for rapidly removing the whey from your pot without the mess of dripping ladles. It is easy to clean just run water an your sanitizing solution and you are done.

    What a wonderful tool for removing the whey from batches of curd. Previous attempts to do it with ladle was time consuming and messy. This pump is fantastic!
