1. Why do we need Cheese Knives? Are they really necessary?
They are not necessary for everyone who cooks but if you are a cheese lover and wish to maintain each cheese’s presentation, structural integrity, and consistency, you must have cheese knives in your kitchen tools. Those who enjoy eating beautifully presented cheese boards and often create platters for their guests too, appreciate the convenience these cheese knives lend.
An avid cheese lover or a professional chef may require a whole set of specialized cheese knives depending on their culinary needs and passion for cooking with cheese. A budget-friendly starter pack is good, to begin with.
2. What are the different types of cheese knives?
Cheese knives come in varied shapes, sizes, and styles, and have diverse functionalities to cut through soft, semi-soft, semi-firm, and firm cheese types. Some of the popular types are the Gorgonzola knife, cheese cleaver, chisel knife, soft cheese knife, Parmesan knife, cheese spreader, offset cheese knife, pronged cheese knife, narrow plane, rind cutter, grater, etc.
3. How to use cheese knives?
Always start with the tip of the knife but never cut the tip and the center of the cheese. Always slice the cheese through its edges. To achieve a triangular cheese piece, cut through the radial patterns. To cut wedges of cheese, cut them along the width edge.
Once you know the purpose of each knife, you will be able to use them better. A gorgonzola cheese knife does not tear the softest cheese. It cuts through cheese rinds perfectly. The cheese cleaver is best for semi-hard cheese. For mozzarella, a soft-cheese knife comes in very handy. A cheese spreader, also known as a spatula knife, is made for applying cheese spreads. Cheddar and parmesan cheese knives are best suited to cut the cheese after which they are named. The pronged cheese knife is multifunctional. It helps to cut a piece of cheese and then pick it up with the prongs to serve guests.
4. How do you choose a cheese knife?
The selection of the right cheese knife depends a lot on the cheese you eat most. Depending on your taste, you tend to savour the slices of cheese in a particular way. And that is when you know which type of cheese knife you need.
Also, it is very important to understand the different blades and how one type of knife differs from another. The design of the knife makes it perfect for cutting through soft cheese, semi-hard cheese, or hard cheese. People usually begin with a soft cheese knife. The aim is to ensure that when you cut the cheese, soft and semi-soft pieces must not stick to the knife. A soft cheese spade helps to transfer and serve soft types.
Also, it’s better to invest in one or two versatile, well-made cheese knives for yourself and one maybe for the guests to pick. Always remember, cheese knives need not be expensive but they must be well-made and possess the right blade.
5. How to take care of premium cheese knives?
Premium cheese knives also need care just like other kitchen tools. When you are making your cheese boards, keep a serving board separate from your working board. Cheese knives must not be used on hard surfaces, like glass, marble, or ceramic. They must not be put in the dishwasher to avoid damage to the blades and handle. It’s best to wipe them with a cloth. Washing them with soap and hands is also good. Using blade covers is also a good idea to protect them and keep them sharp.
