Cheesemaking Mold No.33 - Basket Mold For Burgos & Ricotta Type Cheeses
We supply a range of cheese molds that are all manufactured from special 'Dairythene' plastic for easy sterilization.
Each mold is drilled with holes to allow the whey to escape. In production these molds 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 mold is horizontally slatted to allow the whey to escape and is commonly used to make Burgos (also known as Queso de Burgos) type cheeses.
The mold is 5.33" (135mm) diameter, with a height of 4" (100mm) and can make 1kg (4.5lb) of cheese approx. This mold has a top-skirt for added support.
These heavy-duty basket molds can also be used to make Ricotta.
Please note - All our cheese molds are sold and priced individually.
