Two-part cheese mould
Chinese steamer used as a cheese mould
A cheese mould or cheese form is a container used to press or mould cheese. The cheese is usually wrapped in a cheesecloth during this process. A two-part mould is placed in a cheese press and pressure is constantly applied to compress the curds and force out the whey.
A cheese form is usually a one-piece container used to drain and shape soft cheese.
Alternatives to commercial moulds
A Chinese steamer makes a very good cheese mould, as would a drum sieve.
