About this project

Kefirko Cheese Maker is specifically designed glass jar for a simple homemade preparation of cheese.

Use homemade kefir to prepare probiotic kefir cheese, with no cheese starters or additives necessary or use this kitchen tool to prepare a variety of other cheeses. 

 

Only 4 steps are needed to prepare fresh and healthy kefir cheese full of probiotics and flavoured the way you like it. 

 

Kefir cheese contains all the probiotic micro-organisms that are so beneficial in kefir. 

 

Straining one batch of kefir made in Kefirko (600 ml - 20 oz) makes approximately 200-300g of soft kefir cream cheese. 

The longer the kefir strains, drier and thicker it becomes:

  • Few hours for a thicker kefir that can be used for dips. 
  •  Overnight for creamy cheese. 
  •  1-2 day to get semi-hard cheese.

Flavour your cheese by adding dry or fresh fruit, nuts, herbs or spices of your choice. Choose your ingredients and prepare fresh cheese the way you like it.


Kefirko Cheese Maker design allows you to make various types of delicious Cheeses and cheese dishes!

Kefir cheese is not the only cheese you can make in Kefirko Cheese Maker. By using cheese additives and rennets you can prepare any cheese dish you desire. Why not try to prepare homemade mascarpone, mozzarella, greek yogurt,...? 

Books of recipes included in Kefirko Cheese Maker!

Inspired by a variety of cheese dishes made with Kefirko Cheese Maker we created this recipe book full of ideas for tasty cheese meals.

As a side product of cheese making, there is whey, which is a big source of proteins. Helps regenerate muscles and boost your immunity.


Alternative Use

Want to take a little break from tasty fresh cheese? There are always alternatives on how to use Kefirko Cheese Maker. With some creativity you can easily make fresh ice tea, ice coffee or almond milk. The sky is the limit. :)

New and improved Kefirko 2!

Specifically designed glass jar for easier making of milk or water kefir at home. What is changed? It has better grip of the lid and improved airflow. We also added the Scrapper - a tool for mixing kefir grains during straining to make sure they easily separate from kefir drink. By covering the hole on the Kefirko lid with Scrapper the straining of kefir also becomes more practical and fast.

Risks and challenges

We've successfully completed and fulfilled Kickstarter project KEFIRKO Kefir Maker in the past. In 2014 people like you, who shared our vision, helped us fund a project Kefirko. Our campaign ended in December 2014 and we shipped the orders by the end of September 2015. Since then we’ve fulfilled orders for over 20.000 Kefirko jars worldwide.

We understand the challenges that are to be expected when putting a new product into production. We have established partnership deals with our suppliers who have many years of experience with any risks that can occur in the production process. The molds for the products are already designed and ready to be formed. If for any reason we should switch suppliers it can take a bit more time to adjust, but with our resources, determination and know-how we promise to deliver an exceptional product!
