Perfectly suited for pans over 8 to about 50 litres and even more. It guarantees even cutting of the curd and obtaining uniform curds. This affects the further process of drying the curd, draining the whey and forming cheese.
Cutting the curds is an essential step in the cheesemaking process. Depending on what size you cut the curds will determine whether you make a soft or hard cheese. For a soft cheese the curds are smaller, retaining more moisture. For a hard cheese the opposite applies, cutting the curds into larger pieces to retain less moisture.
Salt can either be added to the curds, also applied once the cheese has been moulded into shape, by sprinkling a brine solution on the surface or immersing the entire cheese too.

Wash the curd cutter in hot soapy water, rinse thoroughly and leave to dry. Before use, immerse in boiling water for a couple of seconds to sterilise. Furthermore, this method of sterilisation is suitable for all our plastic moulds, matting, cheesecloth and muslin straining bags
