Say Cheese Keeper!

Despite its cheesy appearance, this hardworking cheese keeper is sure to do a "Gouda" job of keeping your favorite dairy product fresher, for longer. Simply place the white, earthenware keeper along with any hard or soft cheese in an airtight container (including plastic wrap). The food-safe clay has been fired at low temperatures, which gives it the ability to regulate the moisture around it, keeping your Romano from drying out or your Cheddar from getting mushy. Handmade in Canada.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

Jo-Anne & Gerald Warren

With a name like Amaranth, a mythical flower that is said to never fade, Jo-Anne & Gerald Warren's stoneware has a lot to live up to. Fortunately, it does, both in terms of beauty and durability. Using a firing process that can exceed 2000 degrees, Amaranth products are built to last, withstanding all elements and seasons, yet maintaining their signature charm. The Warren's make sure all their handmade stoneware is made in an environmentally friendly fashion and hope you take as much pleasure in their art as they do in exploring new ways to innovate current standards. collection

    Comments about Cheese Keeper:

    Good cheese is expensive and now I don't have to worry about wasting it. I can put several pieces in a Tupperware container and mold is a thing of the past. I've kept some for over a month with no issues. This would be a great gift!

                  I have only started using this product, so I am unsure if it does what it claims. The only comment I have is in regards to the size. It is much larger than I had expected. I placed it on top of a block of parmesan, and it extended out 3/4 to 1 inch.

                  The Cheese Keeper looks good enough to eat, but it's actually food-safe stoneware! We love the idea of keeping our favorite cheeses at their best. So, Cheese lovers, which of your favorite wedges would you use this handmade, moisture-balancing clay slice?

                  Does this only work on wedges or will it work for deli cheese slices? If it does that should definitely be included in the description.

                  I'm in to this. I've spent $25 and over on bricks of Parmigiana-Reggiano only to find a dried out impenetrable lump a couple of weeks. If this works as well as their bread warmer its value makes it well worth the price.

                  At first I thought this may be a little overpriced but if it really does prolong the freshness of the cheese and therefore creates less waste, then I would say it's fairly priced

                  Thank you for all of the great feedback on this stoneware slice! Voting is almost complete, and we're excited to find out whether the cheese keeper will be a fresh new good. Although this item is pretty dern cute, it's also practical. You can use it to serve warm cheese, or stick it in the container when storing cheese to balance moisture and keep your favorite wheels, wedges, and slices from getting dry or mushy.

                  Doesn't look large enough, or you'd have to serve a pretty darn small wedge of cheese.
