I bought this product a few months ago because my aging space was too cold. While this does help to achieve the proper temperatures needed I find that it is not very consistent. It has a temperature swing of about 5 degrees in each direction.

This is the second of these thermostats that I've ordered. We've used the first one for a year in a (larger) dorm-sized 'fridge that became my wife's original cheese cave. It works perfectly!



As she became more amazingly proficient, though, and branched out into making other varieties of cheeses, there just wasn't enough space to age all of her various cheeses.



"Go Big, or Go Home!"



I just brought home a used commercial soft drink display refrigerator that was removed from a chain of service stations / quick marts that were undergoing renovation. She'll now have five very big racks for storing cheese (more can be added ... at a price) and be able to keep an eye on them through the glass door without altering temps needlessly. The new unit does have a thermostat (and a built in thermometer, lights, etc.), but if that doesn't cover the temp range that she needs, I can add this thermostat in just a few minutes.

Getting students excited!

I bought the thermostat to create a cheese cave in my senior Food Science classroom. Using an old "dorm" fridge (the tall variety), we were able to create the perfect environment for aging cheeses. They are so excited about making cheeses now that we are on our 5th variety. Hopefully the cheddar will be ready for sampling before they graduate in June!

happy camper!!! the dorm refrigerator is now a cheese cave

I am a technical failure and was holding my breath trying an electronic product I knew nothing about. Never fear--my pit bull could have hooked it up and boy! does it do the job. I set the dial at 56 degrees and the next morning it was right on. Hooray for my new cheese cave.

Just what I needed

I received my thermostat yesterday. It was very easy to install. My fridge would not get warm enough for aging but now it is right where it needs to be. You just plug the thermostat into the wall and the fridge into the thermostat and it overrides you fridge thermostat.

I started making cheese years ago and have always used Rikki's books, website info, and supplies. I went back to work FT in 2010 and only recently retired at the early retirement age of 58. I am now living, loving, and doing only those things that I love living, loving, and doing. I live and love fiber (I spin, crochet, and am learning to weave and felt). I love birds (I breed, cherish, and hand-raise lovebirds and I am BFF to a 21-year old Congo African Grey parrot). And I love making cheese, yogurt, and buttermilk using milks from local small dairies. New England Cheese making Company has taught me much and more! I think of Rikki and her amazing family/staff as my personal health and happiness coaches... right along-side (maybe even a bit elevated above) my personal trainer/weight-loss coach. Living long and living strong is my goal.



Thank you for being a part of this path and helping me to succeed!

Solid structure, very simple to use!

Solved my cheese cave temperature issues after giving it 24 hours to regulate.
