A little funky to put together

I haven't had a chance to use it but I'm sure it will work OK, but make sure you have your drill bits on hand because the screw holes aren't lined up at all. I had to redial 3 of the 8 holes (also be careful not to strip the screw heads, they strip easily if your holes aren't completely lined up). And I'm confused by the design because the lever isn't lined up straight with the plunger so it's not a fluid movement (maybe that's the way they want it?). I'm sure it works fine though and can't wait to try it.

<p>Works very well. I'm pleased! Made cheddar! I love that it doesn't take up a lot of room! Great price made very well. I chose, because it was made in the USA!! I'd buy again.</p>

A nice compact design that was easy to assemble and use. When it first arrived, the plunger was broken (likely during shipping) but April had a new part shipped out immediately and without fuss. My first pressed cheese - a colby - looks professional.

Had to 'rig' it to get even press

It was very easy to assemble and use. However, here was the issue I faced; the centering guide is almost the exact circumference of the cheese round insert so after getting it where you think it's aligned and add 40 lbs of weight, the centering guide falls or wedges down into the center circle of the cheese mold (M3 is what was recommended for size and what I purchased). I had to have my husband cut me a block of wood to go between the two pieces to keep the pressure evenly distributed. Fingers crossed, my cheese is evening out! :)

Works Just Fine

Easy to put together and easy to use. It does the job although I wish it had a drip pan so the remaining whey has a path to drip down but that's minor since a towel works fine.
