After reviewing the contents of the kit, I was very disappointed to find one single rennet tablet. It was so hard to see, I initially thought it had been forgotten. Compared to other kits available this is a very poor value. For about eleven dollars more, you can get a kit that with ingredients to make over seven times the mozzarella (30 pounds). The minimal ingredients, thermometer, gloves, and packaging can't cost more than five dollars, making this kit a terrible value.

The instructions are clear and easy to follow, but other kits have easy instructions, too. While I made excellent cheese with it, I will not buy this kit again unless the price drops significantly.

My first try using this kit resulted in a cheese that resembled a firm ricotta.
It was good , but not what I was looking for.
That may have been the result of the milk I used.
My second attempt I followed the directions from "The Idiots Guide To Cheese Making" and it turned out wonderful (using the same brand milk).
I have now been ordering the required ingredients seperatley.It's easy and less expensive.

I was first introduced to this product when a friend had me over for dinner. She had served the mozzarella and tomatoes as an appetizer. I knew immediately this was not store bought cheese so I asked her where she got it. I was completely surprised when she told me she made it that afternoon and knew I had to try this myself. I LOVE to cook and since I never made cheese before, I was so intrigued. I found the kit to have very clear directions. It only took an hour and it was a fun activity. It is going to be one of my top holiday presents. A cheese kit and a bottle of wine- you cant go wrong!

It works and I made mozzarella cheese in 30 minutes. The directions were easy to follow. However, I have some suggestions for first time users. Take the thermometer out of the clip on plastic sleeve and put it halfway down in your pot of milk to make sure the temperature is correct. Be exact about temperatures. Use the freshest milk you can find and avoid ultra pasteurized milk. I had good luck with Lucerne milk, purchased from Safeway. I added dried basil and a little cheese when I was kneading it and it improved the flavor a great deal. I only wish the thermometer was longer. Your hand gets hot holding it over the hot milk.

I picked this up at a local market as I was waiting for the deli to complete my order. I had never really considered making cheese before, and I bought this because I thought it would be interesting to learn about how cheese is made.

The directions were easy to follow, except for one critical flaw, you have to have a microwave to make this cheese. I know that for 99% of you this won't be an issue, but for me it was an issue. I have a tiny kitchen and got rid of my microwave because I never used it. Well, to knead and stretch the curds, you have to put the curds in the microwave and heat them up. I ended up heating my curds in the left over whey, and was finally able to knead the curds together, but it was a long an arduous learning process to get it to work. I'm guessing this is what the Italians did before they had microwaves, but I seriously couldn't find one recipe on the web that didn't call for using a microwave. How long do curds need to sit in hot water to equal one minute in the microwave anyway?!?

The result I got was a mozzarella that tasted great when sliced in a caprese salad, but one that didn't melt well on a pizza. I don't know if I can fault the kit for this, as I think this might have been because of the way I kneaded and stretched the curds. I'm hoping with a little more experience, I can produce better mozzarella.

One other complaint is that this kit is setup for you to make 4 batches of cheese, but there's only 1 renet tablet. I realize that this is how they come, but I feel like it would have been better if the kit had split it up. I ended up with 1/2 a tablet as small crumbs that i tried to store for later.

I was a little apprehensive trying this product, since I'm not the world's best chef my any means. However, the instructions were clear, and I followed the step-by-step instructions to the T. It came out great! I added in strawberries to one batch, and herbs to another- they came out delicious and fresh. Definitely would make this another time, this time with my daughter!

Also, the video on the website was extremely helpful- I'd recommend watching it before you begin making the cheese for the first time.

I gave this to my husband for his birthday and that day he was so excited that he made his first batch of cheese. My mother in law and our three year old joined us as well and we had a lot of fun pulling out the ingredients and following the steps in the instructions. We were very prepared to lament the loss of a full gallon of milk when our first foray into cheesemaking went awry. However, it turned out beautifully!

The cheese was delicious, creamy and slightly firm (firmer than the usual fresh mozzarella you get at Whole Foods). We divided up the cheese in half and kneaded in about a half teaspoon of basil flakes to one half. We put some on our salad for dinner and we all absolutely loved it. The next evening we had it with crackers and Sauternes and enjoyed it tremendously.

My mother in law liked it so much that she ordered one from Amazon to take back to England with her to give it as a gift to another family member.

Overall, it was a wonderful gift, provided lots of entertainment for us, and it was delicious!
