Rectangular Pans and Covers
You can use your 10 qt. stock pot to prepare curds but once you use a rectangular pan you'll never go back (see sidebar for all the reasons).  These are commercial quality NSF 6" and 8" deep stainless steel rectangular steam table pans.  The 1/2 size pans make up to 2 gal. batches. Full size pans handle up to 7 gal.  The covers are clear NSF polycarbonate  with integrated handle and an added side notch for your temperature probe.

Cheese Tip

Why Rectangular?

While round pots are more often used for home cheesemaking rectangular pans offer several advantages that make them, we think, superior:

  • Allows you to use precision square curd cutters.
  • Lowcost, lightweight and easy to handle
  • Corners let you control pouring whey better without "dribbling"
  • Better form factor for storing your cheese making equipment.: just add water and steam sterilize
  • Full size pan gives plenty of room for stacking curds while cheddaring.
  • Fits the "griddle" method better than round pots.
