Cheese Wire

Published November 1, 2009. From Cook's Illustrated.

Overview:

A cheese wire is an invaluable tool for cutting through semifirm or soft cheeses. Lately, we’ve given it a new job: cutting smooth slices of creamy cheesecake and chocolate mousse cake. The Handled Cheese Wire from Fante’s eliminates the need to dip your knife in hot water before every slice—a method that’s far from foolproof. You simply hold the handles and pull the wire taut, then press down through the cake.

    Fante's Handled Cheese Wire

    A cheese wire is an invaluable tool for cutting through large wheels of semihard cheddar or smaller rounds of soft cheeses like Camembert. Lately we’ve found a new use: cutting smooth slices of creamy cheesecake and chocolate mousse cake. The Handled Cheese Wire ($2.99) from Fante’s eliminates the need to run your knife through hot water before every slice (a method that’s also far from foolproof). You simply hold the handles and pull the wire taut, then press down through the cake. This dual-purpose tool is worth its bargain price.
