How to pick the perfect cheese slicer
At this point, we’ve made it pretty clear that shoppers have a pretty wide variety of cheese slicer varieties to choose from. The real question becomes what is the best cheese slicer option when you have so many types?
Based on the person you’re shopping for, what type of cooking they do, how often they host, what their interior looks like, and so forth, you need to know the person you want to gift it to, helps make that decision a bit easier. Read through our guide below to give you a little assistance with figuring out how to gift the best choice.
Aesthetic- How’s their kitchen look?
Not everyone pays particularly close attention to the style of the kitchen in their home. But, some people do. And the people who do are the ones that are going to want to enjoy a particular look or style.
If they have one of those modern kitchens, they’ll want one of the modern cheese slicers. When we say modern kitchens, think of lots of marble counters, sleek stainless steel appliances, updated countertops, while or black shelving units, and recessed lighting or hanging steel light beams.
If they have a more traditional and cozy kitchen, you might see more wooden floors, tile countertops or floors, wood-colored cabinets, and home-style lighting. The bamboo trays would be perfect for this design style.
You can also consider how they use their counter space.
If they like the convenience of keeping pieces out (coffee pots, cutting boards, toaster ovens, etc) then they might prefer to keep their kitchen ready with pieces to use.
If they keep their counter spaces clear, it might mean they prefer a smaller handheld slicer they can quickly pop in and out of a drawer instead.
If you’re not sure what they’re kitchen interior looks like, that’s okay, too! Use one of the other approaches, like what type of cooking they do, or how often they host.
Purpose- How do you think they’ll use the cheese slicer?
Some people are all about no fuss, no muss, loving any sort of item that’s going to make day to day easier.
Some of the more simple, handheld pieces are great options for getting the job done. Busy moms or dads are going to want something with a sharp blade and a great grip.
Efficient cooks and chefs who are about cooking to enjoy the food alone, might prefer to have a simple stainless steel piece. Individuals with large families might prefer one of the pieces that allows for quicker cutting at a faster pace.
Hosting is an important factor to consider when selecting a cheese slicer.
If you’re shopping around for someone who loves to have family and friends over, throw Thanksgiving dinner, throw game nights on Saturday, or have everyone over for football on Sunday’s they might love a piece that doubles as a serving plate.
Whether marble, bamboo, or stainless steel, a multifunctional gift could really hit the spot.
If they’re into hosting, but you don’t want to go out all the way with an entire platter or plate, one of the three or four-piece sets would be a great option. This allows multi-functionality, from cutting to spreading to serving. They’re also minor details that can bring a party up a notch in class.
Style- What’s their personal life tell you about the cheese slicer you’re about to buy?
This is more looking at the personal style of the individual you’re looking to gift. If they’re more flashy and love their devices to be the centerpiece or conversational piece, they looks are definitely important. The crystal edged pieces or the white marble plate might be perfect.
If they’re fun and free-spirited, or you’re looking for a cute, simple gift, something fun like the cheese and mouse handle knives could be wonderfully appreciated.
If they’re a busy parent, again, they might want something efficient over something flashy. Or perhaps this might be something with a kid-friendly handle or grip.
Food Preference- What do they love to eat?
If they’re a barbecue aficionado, then getting one of the multi-food cutters is going to be great.
A slicer that can cut tomatoes, cheese, and lettuce for burgers is a great time saver. Sandwiches and paninis also have plenty of ingredients that need to be chopped more than just cheese.
For these types of foods, they might also want to be able to use some of the pieces that cut larger slices. If the individual you’re shopping for is more of a cheese eater only when hosting, the smaller more delicate pieces would make an excellent gift.
Skill Level- How much do they know what they’re doing?
If they are the occasional host but not big on complex dishes and meals, there is no need to drop the money on one of the more pricier professional pieces.
If they’re often the host for your weekend gatherings or joint barbecues, then consider getting them one of the professional industrial pieces that will really help them step up their game.
Regardless of their skill level, food preference, personal style and purpose, there’s an option for anyone and everyone.
