"This cheese press is hard to use. I cannot use it without my husband's help. If you are a new homesteader and you need to watch your money, make your own cheese press, but don't buy this one. I am disappointed."

"This is one sturdy press, but it has a number of flaws that make it less than useful. First, the follower tilts quite a bit and is hard to keep level. This leads to misshapen, unevenly pressed cheeses. Second, the handle is so small that my wife can't use it. I'm a big guy and work hard, I'm not short on hand and arm strength. But trying to crank 40 pounds of pressure out of something that is thiner than a pencil and smaller than my palm is pretty unpleasant. Finally, the one I received wasn't finished after machining and had plenty of burrs and whiskers. These caused it to get jammed during it's first use. I was eventually able to free it, but I ended up with a palm full of metal shavings for my trouble. If you do buy one of these presses better count on giving it a once over with a file before you try to use it. I know that machined steel isn't cheap, but for the price, I would have expected more attention to detail."
