TWO DIFFERENT CHEESE PRESSES:
Can be shipped, or phone ahead to pick them up here and avoid postage,
(St. Louis, MO 63144 near Galleria or Whole Foods Brentwood).
LIFETIME DUTCH LEVER CHEESE PRESS
All maple, lever arm, very convenient and easy to use. My favorite. Beautifully hand made and sanded deliciously silky smooth in Missouri.. With mine, the lever arm can conveniently be placed upright while you adjust the cheese, so you don't need to unscrew the wing nut each time as you do with other models. (The Dutch Lever Cheese Press is better than the screw type press if making larger cheeses over 5 gallons, and is easier to use and adjust .)
Save $10 if picked up at class.
THREADED ROD CHEESE PRESS
Has two tall threaded rods, springs for steady pressure, and screw down knobs. I also use this type myself, it works great. I assure you, that 80% of the presses sold on ebay will not work but this one will. it's comical to see what silly things are offered - but you can lose a lot of money if you buy them. This is an unbeatable price for a high quality working cheese press. It is small enough to store easily.Save $10 if picked up at class.
(Others offer screw type presses for $150-$250!! Most sold on auction sites won't work because the threaded rods are too short to allow the cheese mold and follower to be placed in position!)
CHEESE PRESS & EVERYTHING
FOR MAKING LOTS OF CHEESE OF ALL KINDS!
You may get kit or cheese presses separately or together,
priced individually below.

The great direction booklet, (and the class if you can attend),
will help you succeed right from the start.
As always, the recipients are welcome to contact me with cheesemaking questions.
* * * KIT INCLUDES * * *
EITHER a wooden dutch lever cheese press, OR a screw-type cheese making press.
Both work wonderfully for nearly any size mold, from small, to large cheese from 10 or 15 gallons of milk.
My dutch lever cheese press is sanded smoothly, & works better than many other models.
Both are beautifully hand-made locally in Missouri.
Don't take a chance on the many online versions which won't work. Get one which will work beautifully.
Kit comes with cheese press of your choice, or you can get the press alone.
