Ok, just got back from dinner, my freakin' brother has terets tonight..it's annoying.
It works really well. Parmesan is by far the hardest to peel cheese cloth away as the curds are much firmer. I've pulled chunks out before. So it releases good and it's soooo easy to clean, much easier than cheese cloth, wipes right off.
The only problem is I don't think it will be possible to remove the cheese and redress it. You might have to leave it in. If the wheel came out firm enough to hold you probably could but none of my wheels I feel comfortable in handling after a few pressings.
My regiment is going to. Smooth top and bottom with circular plastic cloth and a piece for the sides. Then for the final press I'll take the bottom out and put in the embossing plate and then do the same for the top, both without cheese cloth or plastic cloth. But i'll never remove the cheese from the mold or the side piece of plastic cloth. I drilled holes in the mold as I was using the plastic cloth on the sides and I got a ton of whey, it definatly drained better than when I don't use cheese cloth. The best part is it doesn't have to be cotton cloth for the draining and wicking action as Kadova molds use the same plastic type of mesh.
