As I don't live near a Lakeland store I had to wait to purchase this Cheese Preserver and was so looking forward to using it. I've had it a couple of months now and I've tried both Smoked and Cheddar in it. Only to find I barely get 5 days without mould on the cheese! Not what I expected at all, in fact I am now having to hit the kitchen to cook up a batch of Macaroni and Cheese as I can see my Cheddar going 'off'. I will be returning it on my next visit to Glasgow but I had pinned my hopes on this preserver as there appears to be nothing else on the market. :-(

WASTE OF MONEY”
by Miss Wood
I bought this to keep my Brie and Camembert in, to both stop odours and keep it fresh. Unfortunately, the odours remain. Every time I open my fridge, the pong pours out. The lifetime filter hasn't even worked for a week, let alone a lifetime. I have the filter positioned to full, yet the pong remains. I can only think the other reviewers do not actually have smelly cheese, as this does not work. Don't waste your money. I did email Lakeland previously querying about a charcoal filter (referred to in the enclosed leaflet) but was informed this does not relate to this item. Don't buy!

Read the reviews on this product which were positive so bought one. So glad I did as it has saved throwing away cheese which has gone mouldy. This really keeps the cheese so fresh and is the ideal product.

Already had the larger version but needed smaller one to save space in a new fridge. Looked small but surprised how much room inside and takes a lot of cheese. We'll worth it.

what i had been looking for”
This is exactly the answer to mouldy cheese I had been looking for

I got fed up with constantly slicing off the ends of opened packs of cheeses. It seemed I was putting just as much in the bin as was being consumed and basically throwing away money. Looking on the Lakeland website one day, I came across the Tefal cheese preserver and thought I'd give it a try. It's Brilliant. It keeps ALL cheeses fresh and there is no more wastage, even if it's been in the preserver for two weeks and more. What more can I say! You will not be disappointed with this if you decide to buy.

I bought one of these about 3 or 4 years ago and it is still as good as the day I bought it. I have a different fridge now, but have made space to keep this in it as it keeps the cheese in perfect condition longer than any other method. My family eats cheese every day and we normally have about 3 different types of cheese on the go, so it is very useful. I recommend it to everyone.

My son all ways complained about how fast the cheese went off (I think he is part mouse), when ever I bought cheese especially white cheese it dried out so quickly then had to be thrown away, then I saw the cheese preserver and at first I though a bit pricey, but oh it is so worth every penny, the cheese does'nt get thrown out anymore but my biggest problem is manageing to get some for me, my son recons that the cheese tastes better now I have the preserver, he is off to live in Egypt so will have to keep my eye on my cheese preserver or it will be leaving too.

We have had our cheese preserver for probably three years now and it is still going strong. The cheese doesn't dry out at all and this preserver is big enough to store a family sized 400g chunk plus a smaller piece. It is not recommended that the lid including the permanent filter is immersed in water, but after having the item for so long, we just stick it in the washing up bowl and give it a good wash. We haven't noticed any detrimental effect. This is an ideal size to fit in a standard fridge, we could probably use a larger version but would be struggling for the fridge space.

A note from the team: We do recommend that to clean the filter it is wiped over with a damp sponge.

I bought this to overcome the problem of cheese going dry or going mouldy. I am glad to say I have not been disappointed. The filter can be opened up or closed depending on how much you have in the fridge and the temperature. I haven't had to throw any cheese away since buying this in early December 2009.

tefal cheese preserver”
by rosalind flanders
I am absolutely delighted with my cheese preserver. It really has kept my cheese in excellent condition and I'm sure it's saved me money because I'm no longer throwing out dried up, mouldy or sweaty remnants of cheese. I'd recommend this product to anyone!
