Rated 5 out of 5 by mcbeth from fun project for at home cooks easy to follow instructions included- looking forward to making our first batch!Date published: 2015-04-01Rated 5 out of 5 by JBLex from Fun cheesemaking kit I ordered this item last year, had some questions about it and reached out to the folks at Urban Cheesecraft. I found them knowledgeable and responsive. They are invested in your success! Good luck, JBDate published: 2015-01-12Rated 4 out of 5 by Bigbayred from An issue with provided instructions I am glad I bought this kit, all you need in one little bundle. But, I feel that the instructions included are inaccurate. I used fresh milk, but it never set into curds, So, after throwing away $7 worth of milk...I read several cheesemaking websites. Using the same milk, I followed instructions from a cheese making supply company's website (they are located in Mass). And it curded! It was amazing. It was mozzarella! I suggest WS contacts urbancheesecraft about revising instructions (mainly, take pot off heat to add rennet, cover, let sit for 5 minutes, off the heat). Otherwise, it will be a waste of money and frustration vs. the fun, messy and amazing results I experienced today!Date published: 2014-10-12Rated 5 out of 5 by Gisanrd from Fun, Easy and Tasty! Really enjoyed this kit and love making mozzarella. First batch was perfect and everyone since has been just the same. Would highly recommend getting gloves and using that method, the spoon method is cumbersome. Fun activity for everyone in the family. Recommend making pizza after, great way to use the cheese! Recommend using a strainer to gather all the cheese, slotted spoon is ok, but we use a mesh strainer the second time and got everything in about 3-4 times.Date published: 2014-05-20Rated 5 out of 5 by BiscardiCreative from Easy and fun to make! My wife and I were inspired by a recent visit to an Italian restaurant that served mozzarella cheese made in the restaurant. Online recipes were a bit daunting and required up to 4 hours to complete. This kit seemed tailor made to introduce us to the process and the instructions made it incredibly easy. Good fun to do with kids, especially the quick transformation after you add the Rennet. About 90 minutes from start to finish for the mozzarella. The last part with the heating and stretching took a little figuring out and once I had the shape I did one more 20 second microwave and it came out the perfect ball of cheese. Wrap it up tight in plastic and put into fridge to let set. I did not add the total amount of salt in the recipe to the mozzarella but I should have as it needed a bit more, we just sprinkled more on each slice.Date published: 2013-10-13Rated 4 out of 5 by CoolLanie from Tasty cheese It was a fun morning of tasty cheese making. The cheese was good. I was a bit nervous because there are no pictures to illustrate what to expect, but it turned out okay anyway. The cheesecloth did not launder well was the only disappointment.Date published: 2013-09-18Rated 4 out of 5 by panamanorthchef from Great Starter Kit This cheesemaking kit contains everything you need to attempt making cheese. Making ricotta is easiest; mottzarella a bit more challenging and takes practice. If the results are not perfect the first time.....the cheese is still edible and superior to most store-bought products.Date published: 2013-08-22Rated 5 out of 5 by ellie270 from easy to make and delicious Make the ricotta frequently, The kit is complete with all you need to make your own cheese, just buy the milk. The recipe is easy to follow and the cheese taste so delicious especially when your favorite herbs are added.Date published: 2013-08-14
