    These reed cheese mats are used for air drying cheeses, particularly soft, mold ripened ones. They are also used for the turning and draining of Camembert, Coulommiers and Brie.

    DESCRIPTION: 9"x9" Bamboo Reed Mat

    TO CLEAN:  Rinse well with cold water after use, then wash with hot water and a neutral alkaline cleanser or dairy wash. We do not recommend using commercial detergents for this product. 
    If mat is really hard to clean you can soak in the dairy wash before giving it a good scrub. If mat still retains an odor after a good cleaning, try hanging outdoors in the sun for awhile, this is the traditional method used in Europe!

    DISCOUNTS: Order 12 or more cheese mats and receive our price break of $1.50/mat.

    Works but there are better ways to dry

    Pros:
    • easy and natural
    Cons:
    • needs cleaning often
    These work good but personally I don't like the clean up. If you're room drying for a couple weeks this mat will need to be cleaned every few days or you'll get mold between the reeds. And the twine used to weave the reeds together will leave indents on the cheese. I switched to using plastic mats. I just bought plastic canvas at a local hobby shop.
