Makes a nice gift

Comments about : Deluxe Cheese-Making Kit:

Purchased this for my son so I don't know whether it's a good product or not but it made a nice Christmas gift. He loves to cook and try new things so making his own cheese got him interested in trying it out.

She loved it. Says she can't wait to try it and has been wanting to make her own cheese for a while. Bought her the wax product too, just in case. It's a start.

    • Specific temperature & humidity storage needed

      Comments about : Deluxe Cheese-Making Kit:

      The description of this product says it provides "everything you need" but this is not true. For soft cheeses, like ricotta, you need butter muslin which is not included. To make the hard cheeses, you need to store them in a temperature and humidity controlled room for many months until they ripen. In other words, you need a "cheese cave" - who has this? The supplier's website provides instructions for creating a "cheese cave" from an old refrigerator, but who has space for that?

      I bought this kit for my husband for Christmas, including the wax & special brush, but I was very disappointed. The idea seemed charming, and IF YOU READ THE REVIEWS MOST OF THEM ARE ABOUT GIVING OR RECEIVING THIS AS A GIFT, NOT ACTUALLY USING IT. The lower-cost soft cheese-making kit might work, I don't know. My husband has sent away for the butter muslin for the soft cheeses, but I will be returning the wax and brush.

      Deluxe Cheese Masking Kit

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about : Deluxe Cheese-Making Kit:

      This was the best gift ever. My daughter loves cheese and to be able to make her own was a wonderful idea. It was so wonderful that her dad, my husband who loves cheese on everything, can't wait for the cheese to be ready. It was funny seeing him try to take her gift as his own but she wasn't having any of that.

      Comments about : Deluxe Cheese-Making Kit:

      I bought this kit and the wax and brush as a Christmas gift for my sister and brother-in-law. They love good cheese and I thought they might enjoy making their own. It's truly a fun project to try.
