Cheesemaking Mold No.29- Squat Beaker
We supply a range of cheese molds that are all manufactured from special 'Dairythene' plastic for easy sterilization.
Each mold is drilled with numerous 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 one is known as a Squat Beaker mold and is cylindrical but tapered: it has rounded corners and measures 2.75" (69mm) inside diameter at the base and 2.95" (74mm) at the top, with a height of just 1.6" (40mm). This is an economic starter mold, ideal for many types of soft and semi-soft cheeses and can produce a cheese or dessert that is to be served as a single portion (so perfect for restaurants!).
