Boska is in the game for a long time so they know what they are doing and what makes a great slicer. It needs to be robust, but delicate enough for soft cheeses. And the best part of this slicer is that is so cheap!

An Overview On Cheese Slicers

Did you know the first cheese slicer took about an hour to produce? Technology has advanced so much that today an astounding 7,000 cheese slicers can be made in that same amount of time.

Cheese slicers are popular for two main reasons. They significantly cut down on the time you spend prepping your food and they produce a uniform cut in your desired thickness.

If you’re ready to add a cheese slicer to your stockpile of kitchen must-haves, there are a few different types to consider.

The most basic cheese slicer is handheld. You’ll find some of these models come ready to make small cuts in your cheese, while others have a wire cutter that can be adjusted to your desired thickness. The important thing is that you make sure the handle is constructed using an ergonomic design. Not only does this make the handle more comfortable to hold, but it also prevents wrist fatigue.

A tabletop cheese slicer is typically created using high-quality plastic and is best for larger blocks of cheese. They also eliminate the need to do the cutting directly over your countertop. If you’re interested in this type of cheese slicer, you need to make sure there are rubber feet underneath the base of the slicer to keep your table from becoming scratched when you use it.

Board slicers are similar to tabletop cheese slicers, in that, they have a base and a cutting tool. They are usually made of either stainless steel, wood or marble. They are different because they have a handle that includes a wire, which does all the slicing for you.

You can also go with a multipurpose cheese slicer. It’s designed to effortlessly cut through both soft and hard cheese but can also slice other foods, including meats, fruits and vegetables. That means you won’t have to purchase a separate slicer, as the cheese slicer acts as an all-in-one.

DWYM Fun Fact

The cheese slicer actually dates all the way back to 1925. It was the creation of Thor Bjørklund, a Norwegian cabinet maker. Bjørklund had a love for gouda cheese and wondered if there was a way to cut it into smaller pieces for easier consumption. He conducted a few experiments using the tools he had in his workshop. Once he found a tool that worked, he scaled it down and came up with the world’s first cheese slicer. Although he registered a patent for his design in the same year, the cheese slicer didn’t go into production until two years later.

The Cheese Slicer Buying Guide

  • Check whether the cheese slicer comes ready to use or if some assembly is required.
  • Reviewers report that cheese slicers that come with replaceable wires often have wires that come loose after just a few uses. They also state that it is difficult to find replacement wires available for purchase.
  • If the cheese slicer you select has no locking mechanism, you’ll need to be careful how you store it. The blade is sharp and could cause an accidental cut if picked up out of a drawer the wrong way.
  • Some cheese slicers may not work on hard cheeses.
  • Not all cheese slicers are dishwasher safe. You’ll need to clean them by hand using warm water and a little dish soap. A toothbrush with soft bristles can be used to help you fully clean the parts of the slicer that are difficult to reach with a washrag. It’s important, however, that you never use a scrub brush or an abrasive cleaner on the cheese slicer, as this could damage the blade or cause scratches to the outer surface.
  • It’s a good idea to occasionally spray the cheese slicer with a food-safe disinfectant spray.
  • Generally, cheese slicers are quite affordable, although you can pay a bit extra for a multipurpose unit. The Bellemain Adjustable Stainless Cutting Cheese Slicer, the KitchenAid Classic Cheese Slicer and the BOSKA Copenhagen Cheese Slicer are all around the same price point. You’ll pay more for the Westmark Adjustable Multipurpose Stainless Cheese Slicer, as it can be used to slice meats, fruits and vegetables in addition to cheeses.
