Trying to balance a bunch of household kitchen stuff and put pressure on cheese often does not work out too well -- especially for some hard cheeses where you may need heavier weights -- like 20-50lbs. If you are going to make cheese very often then a good cheese press sure makes life easier and the results better. If you want to DIY then it is a simple project. Pic of my very simple press below. Cheese mold goes under the cross-piece and flat weights go on top. Dead easy to build and use.
