Cheese Press & Basic Hard Cheese Kit
This used hardwood screw-in spring-style press is in excellent condition. It was my first press and served me faithfully between 2006ish and 2011ish. The finish on the wood is cracking slightly due to age but does not affect its usability (see pictures).
This style of press typically comes with plastic hoops and a screw; I upgraded to the deluxe version with stainless-steel hoops and a screw with a calibrated spring that allows you to measure the amount of pressure that you are applying.
