I love these, the feel of them, how they clean up and how well they hold up over time. I would recommend them over plastic.

Works great. Fits all my cheeses and keeps them up off the counter so there is air flow under them.

Excellent Mat

From:
The mat was excellent at keeping the curds in the molds and providing good air movement for the bottom of the curds as well. It also gave the curds a nice pattern on them. Easy to work with and easy to flip molds with.

These are very helpful to have on hand for drying or aging cheese. It allows air-flow underneath, and I like the imprint it can leave on the cheese. If the cheese gets moldy it can get between the bamboo, so it will require a good brush to scrub between them.

Very nice quality, they are a bit higher maintenance due to being a natural product but worth it.

We really should order more of these. We never have enough! They are perfect for drying cheese and wash easily.

Works but there are better ways to dry

Rating:

Pros:
  • easy and natural
Cons:
  • needs cleaning often
From:
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.
