    Camembert Molds

    To date, every experience I've had with the company has been first rate...so I feel a bit bad about a two star rating on these molds. On two separate occasions, these molds "lifted" off the bamboo mats as I filled them with curds and the majority of curd placed into the mold gushed out the bottom of the mold. One batch was curds that were cut, the second was uncut curd simply scooped into the molds. Until the curds have settled in these molds for a few hours, there is a tendency to escape out the bottom. I have had to place weights on top to prevent this dilemma. The size and quality of plastic is great...I just wish they included a closed bottom much like the Tomme mold. Very discouraging to work so hard on a batch of cheese only to have this happen.

    Was worth getting them.

    Wasn't sure whether to invest in these, as I had been using yogurt containers that I drilled holes in for drainage. But having the tapered sides was problematic so I ordered one of these to start will. I subsequently ordered four more so I can make my 2 1/2 gal batches of camembert. Drains well and gives the cheeses a lovely, finished shape. I gave one to my sister and she thought I'd bought the cheese because it looked so professional.

    Excellent mold!

    I have used this mold several times to make several batches of Camembert. It's best to order 3-4 of these if you are making a 2 gallon batch. I tried at one point to use the hard mold without the follower to make one wheel of Camembert and it turned out awful. I love that this mold has enough holes to strain the curd under the pressure of its own weight. It works best used with the fine mesh straining mat. Love this product!

    Amazing camembert

    Homemade raw milk camembert is amazing and this mold works perfectly. Place the mold on a mesh ripening mat to allow good drainage underneath. Drain the curds first and then fill the mold. Very easy. Excellent results!

    Bottomless is better!

    Just made my first batch ever of bloomy rind goat cheeses. Used this mold and a slightly larger tomme mold that had a bottom, but similar perforation. This open mold with cheese mat on the bottom drained much better than the tomme mold did and with a little re-filling during draining gives a beautiful thick disc of a cheese for which I have high hopes! Wish it cost a bit less! Also would like to see a double-hoop Brie type mold offered.

    Floats us as being filled

    I'm sure there is something that everyone else is doing but when I start filling these molds they start to float up and allow the liquid to roll out underneath the bottom. I have probably wasted half my batch today because of it floating. I guess I could drain my brie before filling into a colander- that might help. Anyway, wish these molds have bottoms on them.

    Camembert-1 review

    This is a really nice mold for people just getting into cheesemaking. It is nicely constructed; it cleans well; it can be sterilized in boiling water, and it is thin enough that you can see the level of the curds inside the mold as they shrink to the proper height. I wish it were a bit less pricey, and I also wish it came in a larger size for making a larger Brie.
