Does Burrata Cheese Melt?

If you're considering using burrata cheese in a recipe that involves melting, you may be wondering if burrata cheese melts like other cheeses. 

Unlike traditional melting cheeses like mozzarella or cheddar, burrata cheese does not melt in the same way.

The outer shell of burrata cheese is typically made of mozzarella-like stretch paste, which can melt when exposed to high heat. However, the creamy center of burrata cheese does not melt, instead, it becomes softer and creamier when warmed.

It is not the best option as a melting cheese.
