I got one of these of stirring and removing curds and it works great. It's a very well-made utensil with a long handle that gets it way down into a large pot. A lot of cooking utensils are cheaply made these days, but this one is a quality item. Definitely a must-have.

Great product!

You can't live without this if you plan on making a lot of cheese! One of the best "investments" i have made. Don't know how I lived without it! Well worth the money.

I found this little guy, because I needed some to stir my culture and rennet in the milk. This works really well. I like that it is stainless steel. Don't use it to dip out big chucks of cheese it is not built for that. It is very useful otherwise. :)

This is a very heavy duty spoon, works great to stir curds. Highly recommend!

I like it!

I wasn't fully confident when ordering this online. I like to hold something like this in my hand before purchasing. However, I'm pleased with the quality. It sanitizes very easily, feels sturdy and efficiently transfers curds into my mold.

I have been using this ladle for all the years that I have been making cheese. Great for the stirring and ladling of curds into molds. Cannot get by without it!

Mine broke!

From:
I was making my third batch of mozzarella ever when this ladle snapped in half, right where the neck joins the bowl. It wasn't like I was playing tennis with it--just using the ladle and a wooden spoon to knit the curds together in the hot water. It was a simple manufacturing defect and the weak spot was not visible before it broke.



On the up side, it was my first batch of mozzarella that worked out properly, and your ladle will probably be OK. You need a ladle for cheese making, so order it anyway.

Not Just For Ladling Curds!

This tool is not just for ladling curds, although it does a dandy job as a cheese ladle.



I use this for stirring the milk when I add lemon juice, citric acid or cultures. By gently pumping it up and down through the liquid, so that the liquid is seen rushing through the holes (gently, gently!) you can get the liquid moving and stirring from top to bottom, and then very gently pour your culture or coagulant (citric acid, rennet, etc.) over this utensil, a little at a time, while continuing to use this in a "vertical motion." I find that it spreads the additions more evenly through the entire pot of liquid.



I first saw one of these flat ladles used by people from the Far East who used it for all sorts of kitchen tasks, but especially for making small batches of stove-top cheese (mostly panir, for making Indian Dairy Sweets or vegetarian dishes).



I find that once I have this in my hand, I don't feel like using any other utensil. It will do a good job of stirring, lifting, ladling, scraping. Can be used for cutting (not as clean as a knife, though). Handy tool for cheese-making (also for frying and other kitchen duties). I am ordering a third one, so I never run out of clean flat ladles. :)

Great sturdy ladle. Not the highest quality, but for the price you can't beat it.

I bought this ladle during the September 2010 promo. I just finished using it for the first time and it is WAY better then the ladle I was using before. This ladle has a bit of an angle to it when compared to the ladle I was using before. Other than that, that is the only significant difference that I can see. The slight angling of this ladle renders it easier to use and is a definite worth while investment!!

very worthwhile

I am new to cheesemaking - 2 batches of chevre so far. This ladle makes it very easy to spoon the curds into the butter muslin. I like the shape, and that it is all stainless steel.
