A delicious slice of cheese is an indispensable part of every feast, regardless of the occasion. I have a few friends who would rather pick a nice piece or slice of cheese than any other delicacy. But the chef, whoever it is, really knows how tough of a task it can be – getting a perfect slice of cheese. Moreover, if you’re more traditional when it comes to meal prepping, and you prefer high-quality cheese over the more affordable alternatives, the more you run into trouble. Yeah: higher cheese quality equals bigger trouble.
Even when it comes to everyday snacks a perfect slice of cheese is an important piece of the puzzle.
So, we’ve made a few picks among the whole variety of cheese slicers and cutters and we hope you’ll find something for you.
We’ll start with this nice-looking, simple yet powerful cheese slicer. It’s one of those handy wire cheese slicers, which are suitable for cutting narrower blocks of cheese. The widest block of cheese it can cut is about 3.5 inches. When it comes to the thickness you can adjust it per your wish.
It’s made of die-cast zinc, has a comfortable handle, and comes with an additional replacement wire. You can use the tension knob to tighten the wire when loose. When it comes to wire, it’s easy to install, tighten, and replace. Although the wire seems pretty durable, besides the one that comes with the slicer, you can purchase the wires for OXO cheese slicer separately.
The only thing we’ve found pretty funny is the fact that replacement wires cost almost the same as the slicer itself.
Another, even more popular, wire cheese slicer comes from Topulors. The ergonomic handle and the body of the slicer are made of high-quality metal, while the wire and rollers are made of stainless steel. The slicer is about 4 inches in width, and the thickness of the hard or the soft cheese slices is easily adjustable – just change the angle at which you hold the slicer. Also, you can adjust the position of the wire to get thicker or thinner cheese slices.
Overall, it’s a heavy-duty but simple cheese slicer. It’s one of those must-have utensils in your kitchen.
Now, if you don’t want to mess with the wires, but you still want a slicer that is handy and lightweight, then this slicer is a perfect choice for you. It’s made of stainless steel with a hollow frame which makes it lightweight. The opening on the slicer is about 2 inches wide and it’s made for hard and semi-hard cheese – in short, it slices everything from Gouda to Parmesan. The manufacturer has a long tradition in cheese utensils production. Boska is making them since 1896 and maybe that’s the reason for this more traditional approach to the design and the purpose of the slicer.
In the end, you get the ergonomic and sleek design plus ten years of warranty. Also, the slicer is dishwasher safe. So if you keep breaking wire slicers, this one is for you.
With this slicer, or cutter, which might be more appropriate, we’re entering the area of more advanced cheese cutting gadgets. So if you’ve been worried about if the previous two slicers allow you to cut wide enough slices of cheese, you don’t have to with this one. The wire is about 5.5 inches long and suitable for soft, hard, and semi-hard cheese. But it doesn’t cut cheese only – it’s able to cut ham, goose, butter, cake, fruits, and vegetables.
The slicer is made of food-grade stainless steel, and as you can see from the picture, it comes with a board that has precise scale grid lines. The lines are 1 centimeter wide, which is, I must admit, pretty wide – that’s why I’ve written that maybe the more appropriate word for this gadget is cheese cutter.
Besides the scale lines on the top, the board has four non-slip rubber feet on the bottom. Also, with one pre-installed wire, you get four replacement wires. But that’s not all – the cheese slicer/cutter is dishwasher safe, so you don’t need to worry about how to keep it clean and in a good shape.
Now, here we have a kind of similar cheese slicer to the previous one. But if you ask me, and I’m more of a traditional guy when it comes to design, I would pick this one. The slicer comes with a board, slicing arm, and replaceable wire. The cheese slicer board itself is made of bamboo, in two color variants, and you must admit it looks great. The slicing arm has a nice bright chrome finish and the wire is easily adjustable and replaceable. You just need to carefully read the instructions.
Besides its sleek but traditional look, this slicer is a pretty powerful tool that will easily cut through any kind of cheese, even the hardest. Overall, it’s a great product, and honestly, my pick.
For the end of the list, we’ve left something completely different. It’s not a slicer – it’s a curler. It looks like a kitchen utensil for real gourmets and the individuals who want the food they eat nice to the eye. We’ve already had one product from Boska on the list, and you already know they have a long tradition in cheese tools production. This curler is one of the real examples of their experience.
The board is made of beech wood while the pin and the knife are made of stainless steel. It has a nice rustic design that speaks enough for itself.
Whether you’re going to use it for garnishing salads or to slowly enjoy the taste of some high-quality cheese with a glass of wine, it will surely provide you with a unique experience of consuming cheese.
