Moorlands Large Press

(2 customer reviews)

Originally designed by Moorlands nearly 60 years ago

For up 4 kilos hard cheese. No. L1 for M6 Moulds. OPERTATION: Place plastic mat on base plate, cover with mould lined with cheesecloth and filled with cheese on base plate. Slide top plate over rods then one spring on each rod, followed by a hand screw butterfly nut. Screw butterfly nuts until the required pressure is obtained. It is important that the mould and follower are placed centrally in the press and the springs are tightened by the same amount in stages to ensure that the cheese by approximately quarter of a turn and reapply the pressure. Do not over tighten the springs. As a guide, when the springs are fully compressed (with the coils almost touching), a pressure of approximately 60Kg will be applied and each spring will measure approximately 35mm. Unloaded, each spring will measure approximately 85mm. Some distortion of the plates may occur, but can be corrected by turning them over when next in use. CLEANING: The plastics used are of food quality and the press need only be washed in hot water; it will withstand normal cleaning fluids, detergents and disinfectants, but should not be boiled.

  1. Francesco Accolla

    Lovely press for the beginner or the advanced cheesemaker. Very easy to mantain and clean and I especially like that you don’t have to read numbers on a pressure gauge but can press by feel and end up with marvelous cheese, and that it keeps a smaller space profile by fitting inside a baking sheet or pot for the whey dripping out.

  2. Patricia Jordan (USA)

    Excellent for pressing multiple 1kg or a 4kg hard cheese. Fantastic design Moorlands, which has unfortunately been stolen and copied by a little Dutch man! Great customer services as always – Keep up the good work. 5 stars
