Cheese Mould No.30 - Cylinder, base & follower
We supply a range of cheese moulds that are all manufactured from special 'Dairythene' plastic for easy sterilisation.
Each mould is drilled with numerous holes to allow the whey to escape. In production these moulds are usually lined with a cheese cloth prior to filling with curd and set on a cheese mat to ensure complete drainage: this is especially important if the cheese is pressed.
This particular one is known as a Tommé mould and is a large cylindrical mould with a closed base. It has an internal diameter of 135mm with a height of 65mm enabling it to produce a relatively 'flat' round cheese of over 600g The follower is manufactured from heavy duty plastic (Dairythene) and is designed to fit snugly inside the mould - it is used to press out the whey when placed in a cheese press and the moulds can be stacked one on top of the other whilst being pressed.
Please note that moulds are priced and sold individually.
