Description

P3 Conical Mould with drainage holes and base. Perfect for Camembert, Brie and soft blue cheeses. 89x82x83mm

All our cheese making moulds are made from Food Standard Certificate (FSC) durable plastic. Looked after, will last for many, many years. Measurements are in millimetres:- top diameter x bottom diameter x height.

P3 Conical mould is dishwasher friendly.

Included in the description is a recommendation for use, soft, semi-soft, hard, semi-hard or suitable for soft and hard.

Soft moulds are usually taller than they are wide. The curds will shrink down during the cheese making process, by as much as two-thirds. So really pack the curds in, once the mould has been lined with cheesecloth. Soft cheese moulds have holes in the sides and base to enable the whey can drain freely. Coming in various shapes and sizes, including beaker, cylindrical, square, conical, pyramid, heart shaped and basket. If the mould you have chosen doesn’t have a base, remember to sit the curd filled mould on a drainage mat.

Hard moulds traditionally have a follower. This sits on top of the curds in the mould, lined again with cheesecloth, before placing in the cheese press. Pressure is applied to the follower, in turn pressing down on the curds. The whey then drains away.

Applying the correct pressure is crucial. So make sure you follow the recommendations according to the recipe

  1. P3 Mould: ideal home use

    I have two of these moulds and have just ordered two more. They are ideal for home cheese making and I have made small Camembert & Cheshire type cheeses with these. I am about to try my hand at Small Stilton’s when the two new moulds arrive. Four moulds will mean I can handle 4.5 litres of milk at a time.
    The moulds produce a nice shape & handy size of cheese for home use or gifts. They are easy to clean & sterilise and they stack for storage when not in use.

    Love this mould for my soft blue and camembert cheeses.

  3. Mark

    Perfect small mould for Camembert and soft blue cheeses. I have 12 now! Quality finish and easy to clean/sanitise. I do prefer the ‘finish’ of an open mould but the convenience of having a mould closed at one end is also very nice.
