Before coming to Finland, I've never heard or seen a cheese slicer before. This tool works for any cheese blocks, of course, and not the ready-eaten sliced ones. To use this slicer, you just need to hold the handle on top of the cheese block and press it a little bit while pulling it towards you. It's as easy as ABC, though you don't need to press too hard downward since it'll only make it hard for you to slice it. I've made that mistake when I first used it. So just use a little bit strength, okay?
The bad thing about this cheese slicer is that it's not easy to make the exact same thickness of cheese slices, but hey, once it's all inside your belly, it wouldn't matter anyway, would it?
The handle is made of wood and the metal is made of stainless steel, so it's easy and comfy to grip the handle and it's very long-lasting. You only need to wash it just like washing a plate or a fork. So simple to clean! So if you're a big cheese eater and you usually buy cheese blocks, this tool would be handy for you!
