Heavy duty British cheese press supplied ready for use.
The press is fully assembled and comes complete with a spacer block to fit on the mold follower plus a set of pressure blocks. These ensure the following pressures are achieved when used: 10 lbs, 20 lbs and 50 lbs per square inch: the increased pressure will be accurately and evenly applied to the mold when you are pressing your cheeses.
The pressure can be adjusted by simply swapping the blocks (please note, block construction material and press colors may vary).
Pictures 3 shows the press in use, applying a 20lbs/sq.inch pressure to one of our Tommé molds (Mold 30) sitting on a cheese mat. These additional items not included in the sale but available elsewhere in our shop.
The press will accept molds right up to our giant Mold 22, which has a diameter of 200mm (7.8") and will produce cheeses weighing over 2kg (4.5lb)!
The press is manufactured from Food-grade LDPE plastic with stainless steel screw-thread studs, springs and components.
The press is easily dismantled for total hygiene: the twin pressing plates can be removed for cleaning and are dishwasher safe.
