With Shavuos upon us, our menu focus, at least to some extent, is on dairy and pasta dishes, and luscious cheese and crème filled desserts in different shapes and sizes.  To ease meal preparation, great tools are the key.  Join us to  view a collection of cheese tools, some of which  you might not have used in the past.

Did you know that you can get more taste from your favorite cheese with a cheese slicer (also called a cheese plane)?  The Boska Holland cheese slicer is handsome, well-priced, and perfect for semi-hard and hard cheese.

A cheese cleaver is right for cheddar cheese.  For soft cheese, you will want to use a cheese knife that is generally serrated, has holes in it and has a fork end.  Rosle Cheese Set has the slicer, cleaver, and knife.

To grate cheese, the Cuisipro 2-Drum etched rotary grater set comes complete with parmesan and coarse blades. A rotary grater can be used to grate chocolate for a scrumptious chocolate topped dessert.  Of course you can grate on a flat grater, but a rotary grater is both safer and cleaner.  

The Sagaform project pasta server with parmesan grater is a really cool tool.  It is a three in one tool – measure, grate, and serve with the same tool.Transform home cooking into a culinary experience with The Boska Holland Cheese Curler. Eating cheese was never so tasty!

The Trudeau gourmet cheese baker set makes baking cheese simple.  The stoneware cheese plate holds the cheese in place.  The handle makes it easy to remove from the oven.  The lid’s vapor holes conserve flavors better during baking.

To serve cheese in style, wood and bamboo cheese serving sets are very popular.  These sets come complete with a serving board and cheese preparation utensils.

Another option is the JK Adams Slate Slabs that are unique servers perfect for cheese.

For cheese and chocolate lovers, there are many cheese and chocolate fondues to choose from.   Stick to a ceramic fondue.  The metal ones get too hot.

  1. Love those slate cheese boards, you can write on them with chalk too, have to get me some of those.

  2. Hi,
    I was so thrilled to read that you had mentioned the microplaner on your website. You may remember that I suggested it. Yes it is marvellous for lemon zest too and I find it excellent and quick for grating parmesan cheese. Thank you, love reading your website and recipes.
