no photo or attachment....


We have the "ukrainian" cream separator, which you will see in lots of photos on the web if you do a cream separator web search. Ours is not the stainless steel version, so not for commercial operation. It works fine (and has done so for about 10 years now), you do need to have around 10 ltrs of milk to do at a time, it does get clogged up if you do more, but less is not worth the washing up required. Very useful to have available early on in summer if you have a glut of milk but no time to make lots of cheese.... It takes a bit of time to get used to it, but I wouldn't be without mine.

I am sorry I don't use Amazon, but if it is red and very retro looking, then yes. I guess you want the electric and not the hand-cranked one, and for goats cream/milk you need to warm the milk to around 40 deg C. It also helps to "warm up" the separator by putting quite hot water through is before the milk, and the separator has to be bolted to a VERY sturdy surface (we use a surplus bit of kitchen worktop).


I remember ours being in the order of around 100 pounds (as I said that was 10 years ago).

This is the same machine we have, we're happy with it even though the washing-up is a bit of a pain  :)
