Description

Proper storage of your cheese preserves the purity of its flavor while extending its shelf life. This two-ply premium cheese paper simulates the environment of a cheese cave, where cheeses are traditionally aged.

While conventional plastic wrap suffocates cheese, this unique material allows cheese to breathe while maintaining optimal humidity. The result is cheese that stays fresh, longer. Set comes with fifteen 6¼" x 11" bags. Made in France.

Best idea ever!!!
Having used - and loved - the cheese papers, the cheese bags are one step better with the same great cheese-saving features combined with easier closure! My husband and I are cheeseaholics and always looking for new and interesting varieties, so some of our purchases tend to be on the pricier side. Formaticum allows us peace of mind that our cheeses will stay edible for extended periods

We purchased cheese while visiting in Parma, Italy, and were given a cheese bag to help preserve the cheese. It worked so well, we wanted more cheese bags and are so happy that we found these!!

Have used cheese papers before and found them to be very good for preserving the cheeses, these bags were highly recommended by America's Test Kitchen, so wanted to try bags
Susan C on Dec 9, 2014
In a one person household, a piece of cheese takes awhile to consume. I'm hoping this storage will keep it from deteriorating as quickly.

Are these reusable ?
A shopper on Jul 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: these bags are a special paper and are reusable only until the last bit of cheese is used, then its like plastic wrap or waxed paper, the bag is a throw away. So I guess the answer is no, they are not reusable.
Are these bags reusable ?
A shopper on Jul 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We have reused them, provided the cheese had not become moldy; they last for a few uses. I use a small Post-It note to indicate the kind of cheese inside, rather than writing directly on the bag.
would these be appropriate to include in a gift bag at condo beach wedding? We would get local good
cheeses and crackers. Does cheese have to be in refrig for the gift bag
wren m on May 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The bags are excellent! But the cheese has to go in the specialty cheese bag and then in the fridge. It's not a substitute for refrigeration. That said if they are going to open your gift basket with cheeses and crackers immediately, there's no reason that you couldn't include the bags as part of the gift. Hope this helps.
When I was young, cheese shops hung the cheese from the ceiling. They were not refrigerated. Doesn't the flavor increase when cheese is at room temp? Is it recommended to refrigerate cheese all the time?
Walter Q on Jan 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Store the cheese in the refrigerator, but let it come up to room temperature when serving a cheese plate. The cheeses that hung from the ceiling in cheese shops had a rind all around them made of wax, which sealed it from the air but once the cheese has been opened, it needs to be stored in the refrigerator. Hope this helps.
