I love the wavy slices of cheese you see on cheese trays or at restaurants and often wondered just how easy it was to make those myself. It is so much cheaper to buy the cheese you want and cut it then to have that done for you not to mention I often make my own cheese with my goat milk so I need a nice, fancy way to cut it when I serve it to guests. The Blue Iguazu Hand-Crafted Ripple-Cut Gourmet Cheese Slicer was exactly the tool I needed, so I opted in to try it.
I chose walnut instead of cherry because I felt the black walnut wood was a bit more rustic looking and because there are black walnut trees growing on the property. I am very happy with my choice – it looks good in my kitchen and goes great with my cutting board. The black walnut handle is very easy to grip – much easier than a knife. I love the way it feels in my hand. The stainless steel ripple blade easily cut through the block of cheese I tried it out on and the ripples it produced were perfect in every way. I loved that it was easy to keep all the slices uniform as well. The brass on the sides that holds the stainless steel wire are adjustable and add the perfect elegant touch of color.
The Blue Iguazu Hand-Crafted Ripple-Cut Gourmet Cheese Slicer is exactly what I was looking for. It is easy to use too. This would make great gift item, but be sure to pick one up for yourself or you will wish you had!
