Timing is everything when it comes to making your own cheese at home. Whether you are waiting for curds to form or heating up milk, it all needs to be done to the correct timing to achieve the necessary acidity levels for your cheese. The best way to keep track of your time in your cheese making is to use a small digital kitchen timer. This timer features large digits, a loud (but not too loud) alarm, magnetic backing, retractable stand and a hanging hook. It measures in at 80 x 75 x 20 mm and takes AAA batteries which are not included in the pack.
