I recently bought the NECS cheese press in order to accomodate my larger forms for making 4-8 pound wheels that require moderate to fairly heavy pressing. My old Italian press works wonderfully for smaller cheeses, but I needed a step up for the bigger wheels. So far, I have just completed my first wheel in this new press. I am very impressed with the quality of materials, design, and construction. I expect this to become my go-to tool for all my pressed cheeses in the future.

I received my press about a month ago, and I was so excited to use it! The first time I made beautiful stirred curd cheddar. Jamie was so helpful via email to make sure that I was pressing my cheese correctly. The second cheese I made was Pepper Jack and I am so delighted with the ALL AMERICAN MADE cheese press. I would recommend spending the extra money if you're not handy like me with making things. The quality cannot be beat. Thanks!

Beautiful!

I love my new press. It is flawless stainless steel, it presses evenly and my first few batches of chees drained better than any other press I had! Totally worth it! The weight system was a little tricky but once I got it I really never want to go back! I have made several amazing wheels now I just have to wait for them to age to see if my cooking skills are as good as the press!

I bought mine about 8 years ago and will be buying another one so I can make 2 batches of cheese. You can really tell this is made in the U.S.A., great craftsmanship. I have looked at what others are offering, and they dont come close to matching the wormanship of this. I highly recomend this.

Before buying this product I have gone through quite a few single spring presses just to have them fall over night, can't believe how much milk, time and possible cheese I had lost. Upon receiving my new press from NECM I noticed that he design was different, it was dual spring loaded and can be used with any mold. I have not used it yet but just by looking at it I do not need to call a helpdesk came with great instructions. Moral of the story ... Buy your equipment and your needs through a company that specializes in cheese you will notice the difference right away. BTW just made my first Jack and can all ready tell that it was pressed properly. Thanks Ricki

This cheese press was recommended by the farmer who conducted the cheesemaking class which led me to the art of cheesemaking. She was 100% right! This press is easy to use, relatively compact, easily sterilized and is exactly what me, as a beginner, needed. I would certainly recommend this press to anyone interested in cheesemaking.

We bought this cheese press after my husband and I attended a Cheesemaking 101 class a few years ago. We've successfully made the farmhouse cheddar a few times and after a bit of a hiatus from hard cheeses, am looking forward to trying Sarah's updated Colby! I wanted a product that would be easy to use and maintain and this is it.

<p>This is a solid, simple and irreplaceable part of my cheesemaking! I tried everything else first- cheaper presses, homemade contraptions, etc. and finally chose this one. I don't have a lot of extra money so resisted but don't make my mistake! This makes everything sooooo much more enjoyable and after a few years now it's a well used & well loved part of my cheese life! I recommend it to everyone and loan it out to a few trusted friends!</p>

I bought this press from you ~20 years ago and use it for parmesan, emmental and cheddar cheeses. I have a parmesan pressing now. It is simplicity to use, and still works and looks like new. Kudos to the designer and maker. Thank you.

I bought this cheese press and many additional stuffs for making cheese from CheeseMaking company. It was a gift for my brother, cheese press is the best in the market, very well made, strong and steady, my brother is happy with it.

I'm thinking maybe I should buy everything for myself to make delicious homemade cheese for my family.

Love the press but I feel it takes some effort to operate.

1. When curd volume reduces under press, the pressure also reduces so you have to keep pushing it down once in a while to keep the pressure up. I have barbell weight but it's not too easy to balance them on the press.

2. I wish the lower wood bar can stay in place when you want to take the mold out to flip the cheese/re-dress the cheese cloth. I have to take everything out in order to do that.

3. It would be helpful to have marks on two rods so pressure is equalized. I used a permanent marker to mark it.

Great product!
