Easy and delicious!

7/6/2015 by Kristina

I purchased the cheese kit for my daughter and I to try and make cheese together. I always look for ways to let my children experience how things are made and this hit the mark wonderfully!
The cheese was not only very easy to make but also delicious. We all felt very successful eating it! It was a great family activity but would also make for a unique gift!!


cheese making kit for mom

The kit was a great hit. Was purchased for mothers day present from the kids. My wife has wanted to make cheese for so long and now with this kits simple instructions and ingredients she is making cheese like crazy. Mmm lucky me:) we are making cheese together and having a blast not to mention the yummy fruits of our labor.


Fun to make and not that difficult after all.

I bought the deluxe kit because I couldn't decide which smaller kit to try. I wanted to make all the different kinds of cheese. So far, I have only attempted the mozzarella. It turned out somewhere between mozzarella and ricotta, and tasted terrific. I put Italian herb blend mixed into the cheese, and formed little balls with it. Then, I put the balls in olive oil with some more herbs. Friends raved about it. One friend took some home and froze them, and said they were fine after defrosting. I also put some in an omelete. Very tasty. I just sent my son a Mozzarella/Ricotta kit for his birthday. Can't wait to hear how he does with it. I live at 6300 feet, which may have an impact on my success. I used Trader Joes regular milk, not organic, or anything fancy.


You have to try this!

I just made my first batch of whole milk easy to make, and the results are wonderfully decadent! I am looking forward to experimenting with flavorings in the next batch.


Nice Kit

This was a Christmas present for our son. He has not had time to make cheese yet, but looking forward to doing so. I got it for him because he makes his own cottage cheese and butter. When he makes the cheese I will update this review.


Super Fun & Tasty Too!!

I originally started with the simplest Paneer/Queso Blanco box. So tasty! I experimented with a few different flavors and shared with friends and coworkers. They all were amazed at my ability to make my own cheese (they thought it was tasty too). What they had a hard time believing was that it was easy too!!
I bought the Deluxe box to share in the cheese-making fun with family while home for Thanksgiving. Instead of sitting around watching TV, I plan on dragging the nieces into making a few batches with me. I'm not much of a cook but to me it felt like a fun chemistry experiment. Everything but the milk is included!!
The only thing that's a little annoying (but far from a deal breaker) is that you have to hold the thermometer, it does not clip to the side of your pan.


Love that cheese-y gift

Another gift for a grown son who is very urban. Love it so much, I am going to order another


What a neat gift this will be!

The kit came very quickly. I wish I could review it, but it is for a Christmas gift and I cannot. I know they will love it and I loved the idea of it the minute I saw it. I will say I tried to buy it locally and the store that did carry them had the small kits, but not the largest kit that makes all the types of cheeses. So I ordered online and I am very satisfied with that as I was offered free shipping. Thanks so much.


Successful results

I bought this for my dad who was trying to make cheese on his own to no avail. I decided to buy this for him and his first attempt was a rich smooth cream cheese. By the way, my dad has a tendency to be impatient and assume things aren't necessary but he followed the directions. He was excited and liked that everything was provided for him to succeed. Thanks for the product.


Easy and fun

Pricey, but nicely-done cheesemaking kit. Fun illustrations and very good directions. Easy to make cheese.

The Urban Cheesecraft Story

Urban Cheesecraft - DIY Cheese Kits

Cheese Making 101

When Claudia Lucero set out to try her hand at cheesemaking, she was surprised at how difficult it was to find supplies and overwhelmed by some of the special equipment that some recipes required. After all, cheesemaking has been going on for centuries. Should it really be this complicated to try in a modern home? None of us has calibrated presses, humidity gauges, and acidity testers in our home kitchens.

After lots of research and perseverance, Claudia refined her own techniques for making fresh cheeses that don’t require aging and can be made at home with little or no special equipment. Now
she’s sharing her experience with fellow aspiring cheesemakers.

With an Urban Cheesecraft DIY Cheese Kit, all you need is a gallon of pasteurized milk (not ultra-pasteurized). The kits include the rest of the supplies such as cheesecloth, a dairy thermometer, vegetarian rennet, citric acid, and cheese salt. (Supplies vary depending on the kit you choose.) Just follow the instructions, and in about an hour, you’ll have fresh mozzarella, ricotta, queso blanco, paneer, or goat cheese. Once you get the hang of it, you can have fun experimenting with different spices, shapes, and recipes. Your taste buds will love the effort.
