The bag falls off the frame if you fill the bag more than about a third full, no matter how tightly you tie the strings. The reason for this is that it can't slip under the metal loop completely to grasp better because the legs of the thing come directly out of the hoop, and for intensive purposes, from the edge. There is nothing for the bag to grasp. I do larger batches of jellies, and having to slow down production this much is unacceptable.
The upshot is that the bags work. If you've already bought this, and have access to some gallon-sized glass jars (ours were originally pickle jars), you can use those and put the bag in them. It works PERFECTLY. Almost as if that was the original idea...
Thankfully I purchased this locally so I can easily return it. I only wished I had read reviews on it first.
I have to amend my review to note that it does rust terribly as another reviewer wrote. At first this was more of a cosmetic problem, but it does seem to affect the quark cheese if the stain on the bag from the rusty ring touches the cheese. I will keep using it because I don't have an alternative, but it's too bad.
I do love the bags, however. Once they have drained for a bit on the ring I take them off and tie them on something to let them drain further. Then I can store the cheese in the fridge in the bags (in containers) and they are very easy to clean. One important thing to do is to tie bigger knots in the ends of the strings - once you wash the bags, the strings shrink and then retract through the sides of the bag. It takes a long time (and a lot of patience) to feed them back through.
UPDATE: After tipping this thing over a couple of times full of kefir, I gave up on it, and purchased some very wide mouth glass jars that the jelly bags fit over perfectly. The jars do not tip and they do the exact same job with a lot less mess. I cannot recommend this stand although the cotton jelly bags are wonderful.

All metal parts rusted the first time it was washed. Stand is wobbly and unstable. Very odd because I love Norpro products as a rule but they really missed the boat on this one.Published 10 hours ago by Spring Violet

I absolutely love this. The legs are flexible enough to fit over a one gallon ice cream bucket, which is what I use to strain the jelly into, and I haven't had any trouble with... Read morePublished 2 months ago by M. Gifford
