Make your own cheese with as little effort as possible from the comfort of your home – easy, quick and healthy. The Borner cheesemaker allows you to create your own cheese variations according to your taste.
Cheese is a treat – especially if just spread on bread. It’s just as suitable to be used as a spread under honey or marmalade as well as a dip, for scalloping and as a filling for antipasti.
Cheese is rich in important nutrients such as calcium, phosphorus and vitamins A, B, E, D and K and at the same time it is also low in fat. In comparison to store-bought cheese, homemade cheese contains no preservatives, thickeners, colorants and flavor enhancers. Homemade cheese is a natural product, which can be varied according to your own taste.
But how can you make your own cheese? It’s really easy. The original Borner recipe asks for milk (cow’s, sheep’s, goat, lactose-free, soy or almond milk), a microwave or a commercially available pot and a coagulant, such as lemon juice or vinegar. First the milk is heated before adding the coagulant to clot it and afterwards poured into the Borner Cheesemaker. The Borner Multimaker is the ideal companion for that! And that’s it really!
Of course you can add additional ingredients, such as herbs or spices, to create your own taste. Either you enjoy the cheese when it’s still warm after it has been poured or you place it in the fridge to intensify the taste and consolidate the consistency.
The Borner Cheesemaker consists of a high-quality strainer of resistant BPA-free plastic. You will also receive a custom-fit plate, which serves as a drip aid for liquids. The plate can also be used to serve the cheese. The strainer as well as the plate of the Cheesemaker can be cleaned in the dishwasher. Avoid using aggressive cleaners or abrasives.
Whey is a very healthy product. It consists of up to 94% water, up to 4-5% lactose and is nearly fat-free. Additionally it contains lactic acid, which is compromised of vitamins B1, B2 (which is responsible for the green-ish color) and B6 as well as potassium, calcium, phosphorus and other mineral nutrients but above all 0.6-1% whey protein. If you like, you can collect whey in a container and drink it.
