Cheese Slicers and Cheese Knives: not just for Gourmets

There are many different types of cheese: classic ones such as Gouda or Cheddar, or strong ones such as Gorgonzola. Cheese is more than just a topping for bread. It’s eaten as a dessert for fancy dinners or as a delicate snack in wine bars and tastings. Cheese lovers cannot live without cheese slicers and knives in their kitchen. Their special shapes and cuts facilitate preparation of soft and hard cheeses. Discover our selection!

Cheese Slicers and Cheese Knives – An Overview of Your Benefits

Soft and Hard Cheese Knives: The Differences

Soft cheese knives and hard cheese knives are very different. Soft cheese knives can be recognised by their scalloped edge and perforation. They are useful for cutting white, red and blue mould cheese. Pay attention to use different knives for different cheeses. This prevents a mixture of cultures, which decreases shelf-life. Hard cheese knives aren’t really knives. For hard cheeses are broken, not cut. Hard cheese knives cut pieces from the body of the cheese. In general, cheese knives have a blade length of 13 to 18 cm.

Cheese Slicers: Shapely Precision

Cheese slicers have the advantage that they make thin and precise cuts. This is primarily due to the immediate contact of the tool and the elimination of the usual lever motion of a knife. The Stelton Cheese Cutter has a history of 30 years. It has never been surpassed since then despite numerous copying attempts. It make it possible to cut soft cheese that is too sticky and soft for slicers.

The Quality of Cheese Knives is decisive

For cheese knives, not just the aesthetics but also the quality is important. A cheese knife should be wieldy and rust-free. Suitable materials are steel and stainless steel. Knives that are made solely of these materials are more durable and hygienic. With time, bacteria may settle into wooden or plastic handles. If you want to enjoy your knive for a long time, wash it by hand. Solutions and salts in the dishwasher attack the blade and make it dull.

Tipp: The three-part Alfredo Cheese Knife Set by Georg Jensen is a good solution for cheese lovers.
