How we tested
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.
