    Great cheese kit. I like that you can make a number of different cheeses. Other reviewers had problems with the rennet leaking out. We did not have this problem. Great gift!

      Service and delivery comments:

      Arrived with whatever liquid that was inside all over the packaging. Returned immediately and decided not to risk it again. Just hope that all of the postage will be refunded as it cost over $24 to return.

        Comments about ARTISANAL CHEESEMAKING KIT:

        This was a gift for my daughter and is the perfect starter for her dream of being an artisan cheese maker.

        Service and delivery comments:

        The boxes arrived smashed --- probably the result os handling during shipping. The bottle of food color was cracked and leaked red dye all over the inside of the box. Customer service was good, but a replacement was out of stock and could not be delivered until mid-january --- hardly in time for Christmas. Nevertheless, I really like Uncommon Goods!

                    Purchased for my brother who is a great cook and somewhat of a foodie. It was shipped directly to him so I never got to see it, but he was thrilled with it. He's looking forward to trying it out. I would have liked to see a mid-priced cheese making kit here...somewhere between the cheap one and this one.

                          As checked off bought this for my husband as he loves to cook and couldn't think of what else to get him. This is a great all-in-one starter cheese making kit. It has everything you need (but the milk) to get started. Wonderful way to start experimenting with food. He has already made Mozzarella (Mootzarel) which came out very good.

                              I was really pleased to gift this. It was a "wow" when opened. We'll see what happens when its actually made but for now it was fun to give and see the reaction

                                    I wanted to make cheese at home myself so I bought this kit because it has EVERYTHING you need to make hard cheese including the cheese press. I did some research online and found this kit to have a fair price and be very complete

                                    The only negative is after you make a few cheeses you need to buy more supplies to make more. The problem isn't having to buy the refill item because that's expected but Mad Millie brad refill items are very hard to find even online.
