A few of you have asked that I share some of my favorite products. I recently acquired a cheese slicer, and I love it. Mr. Handsome and I both really love cheese, and we go through a lot of it. We have a cheese knife, but it doesn’t work as advertised, so for the first three years of marriage, we just used a regular knife.
The slices were always too thick, and every single time I ate cheese, I thought about how great it would be to find something that would cut thinner pieces so we wouldn’t blow through blocks so quickly. During a recent weekend in Texas with friends, I was preparing grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch. When it came time to slice the cheese, our friends pulled this out:
It’s a simple design–a marble slab with a wire–and it cuts perfect, thin slices of cheese. I was blown away. This was exactly when I had been looking for!
When I asked our friends where they had purchased it, they sadly didn’t know, but they had an extra one that they had received as a wedding gift and offered to give it to us–as long as we promised to tell them the gender of our baby. They recently had their first child, so they were eager to hear what ours would be. We agreed, which gives you an idea of how excited I was about this cheese slicer.
Thankfully, the item made it home safely in our luggage, and we have already used it about a dozen times. If you’re looking for a similar product, I was able to determine that this is the RSVP Marble Cheese Slicer, but other companies make similar ones. And in case you’re wondering when we are going to announce the gender of our child, we are planning to spill the beans very soon!
