Looking for cheese forms
« on: February 23, 2012, 02:59:02 PM »
Hello All,

I was wondering if anyone knows of a place that I could buy round cheese forms with curved edges.  I would like to make 7-10 lb cheese wheels, and haven't been able to locate these types of forms.  I have seen a lot of straight sided round moulds, though. 

Thanks in advance -

Leanu

Kadova brand molds have rounded edges and are really nice but very expensive, especially when you go to the larger sizes. Lots of on-line stores stock them, The Cheese Mould Shop in The Netherlands has good pictures of them.

You can also buy similar 500 gram molds without the netting installed from Margaret Morris at Glengarry Cheese here (W49)

Thanks Boofer!

Leanu - I can probably get you any cheese form you wish for... I would need to know what type/style of cheese this is because the patterns, proportions, draining speed and material thickness make a big difference. Let me know. We will get you what you need.
