Top ReviewsIf you ever wanted to try making cheese, this is a great start.

I LOVE this kit!!!! I have wanted to try to make my own mozzarella and this kit made it so easy. The only thing I changed was I didn't use the microwave directions to kerp heating the cheese to stretch it. I reviewed some online recipes and just used the hot whey. The only thing I would change in this kit is add directions for not using microwave.. oh and I bought some gloves like the ones you use to wash dishes. It made handeling the hot cheesr for stretching so much easier. Love it so much making mozzarella, ricotta and maybe more this weekend. D efinately a great way to try out making cheeses at home.
Don't assume the first time will be a charm

While the first batch of mozzarella didn't appear to turn out (because I didn't have the temperature just right), it actually is quite soft and tasty. The second batch I did exactly to the temperature and it turned out much firmer, pulled in the way it should and is also yummy but a bit firmer than I like. I highly recommend a good thermometer that yoiu can read easily. The box set is a nice way to get your feet wet and the instructions are great. I did also watch a utube video to see the technique.
Basic Ingredients with Start Guide

This is a good starting kit for those who want to try their hand at making cheese. Be sure to follow the instructions in the book. Make sure as well you are not using ultra pasteurized milk or your cheese will not cuddle properly. It is the same way your temperature must be accurate. You must use stainless as well. This comes with a very few basic starting ingredients. I tried three times trying to make mozzarella and failed. I got this kit and had success the fourth time mainly because the book is accurate. Don't go by YouTube for mozzarella. Too many people have too many different ways that actually do not work. The key may be the milk you are using. You can always try adding calcium chloride, but calcium chloride does not come in this kit.
Great kit for a first time cheese making experience.

As described the kit has all necessary ingredients to make your first experience of cheese making an exciting event, as it was for me. It was awesome to see the development of the milk into cheese. I am retired, and like to spend time discovering how thing work. First time: I did a funky looking but good tasting "thing". 2nd time my son tried it : Mozzarella! Delicious :)
Makes Cheesemaking Easy

I didn't want to invest in buying full-size bottles of the "chemicals" (for want of a better word) to make my first ever batch of mozzarella. This kit has all the additives needed in quantities perfect for a few trial runs. Actually, it supplies enough for 3 batches of assorted varieties of cheese. In addition, it includes a nice square of reusable straining cloth. My mozzarella turned out great. Who knew it was so easy. Took about a half hour.
Easy and tasty!

This was an easy and fun date night with the hubby! We made pizza from scratch and this kit made the cheese portion easy peasy. The only thing I'd change would be having the rennet come in single serving pouches, instead of two serving pouches. Had to dump it all out the measure half and then find storage for a tiny bit that's left.

Easy introduction to making cheese at home! I've dabbled with basic ricotta before, and this package gave me the tools to do more. Especially like the homemade mozzarella :) !
How to make cheese without the enzyme?

I would love to give the purchase a better review, but in my case the major ingredient (rennet) was not included and if I wouldn't have called costumer service I would have had overpriced citric acid, cheese salt and a cheese cloth. Overall the product design is nice and the instruction easy to follow. This is the only reason I give one more star.
Super easy and lots of support!

I was so excited to make some cheese and VERY disappointed to discover that the box didn't contain all of the items it was supposed to. We didn't receive any vegetable rennet, and cannot make the mozarella or buratta, the two we were most looking forward to. Can't return the product, can't make the product, very disappointed.
