Our cheese press is made for home cheese makers. Made from a beautiful grained hard maple, with a lighter basic color with various shades of darker marbling. Each press is as unique as the wood it's made from. It comes with an innovative design that makes pressing cheese easy, and they all come out the same. No need for pressure gauges, no lopsided cheeses... every one comes out great! Each one is unique finished by the hands of craftsmen of wood. And this press will last you a long time with proper care!
It can also be used to press fresh fruit! Works fast and complete without the little seeds getting caught up like in a traditional mill. Place into baking pan to collect the juice. Use cheese cloth to easily remove skins and seeds, but not necessary. Click on the main photo and see the 2nd photo showing the release of juice from bottom of mold just as the whey is released. Note: Berries may stain the wood and molds!
