I like using the dip method for waxing cheese and this wax melts smoothly and coats the cheese well. Easy to use.

I'm sure it is a fine product but after receiving it and using the red wax first I am unhappy with the color black for the wax coating. Nothing to do with the product my opinion only

Melts easily. Brushes on easily. Black makes a very sophisticated looking cheese in my opinion.

Black makes my Cheddar's look so polished and professional. It is a good wax, though I find that dipping gives me a better look over brushing. If you don't wax thick enough it can look dark purple, but that is just your cheese shining through. Add another coat and enjoy. Can be recycled and put on your next effort easily enough if you are a cheese-parer. This beats many of the home-concocted alternatives with paraffin or beeswax.

Wax is a valuable part of cheese making for us. We have had nothing but great results with this wax.
