The Cheese Vault is a simple and reusable way to store your artisan cheese. Cheese experts agree that the worst possible way to store your cheese is the way we all do it – by wrapping it in plastic wrap. Cheese needs to “breathe” and eliminate excess moisture to maintain its flavor and delay molding just like in a cheese cave. Until now, the only recommended solution for proper cheese storage was to use disposable sheets or bags.
The Cheese Vault is made of food-grade silicone and features a bottom designed to wick away excess moisture and a top that means any moisture or condensation that does collect on the interior lid is directed away from the cheese. There is also a divider that can be used to separate two smaller pieces of cheese, keeping each piece fresh and tasty without mingling flavors. One of the sides is polished so the name and date can be written for easy identification and erased and reused.
It is ridiculously simple to use - just put the cheese inside, put the lid on top and store in the refrigerator. If you wish to store cheese for an extended period of time simply add a little water to keep the vault moist inside. Once evaporated just replenish.
With Americans eating approximately 23lbs of cheese a year there's definitely a lot of delicious cheese getting thrown away because it hasn't been stored correctly. Now with the Cheese Vault, quality cheeses can be enjoyed long after they are bought. Recommended for firm cheeses.
