Review: Summer Food Tools
That was my first thought when I touched the handle of Cutco
Cutlery's new cheese knife. It was so light-weight I was convinced it had to be a lightweight.
I couldn’t have been more wrong. The
knife zips through cheese like the proverbial hot knife through butter.
It is literally the best tool I have ever used to slice cheese.
This extremely sharp knife cuts smooth straight lines, or even wedges,
whatever the user wants—no wavy, uneven cuts like happens with so many knives
where the blade bows during the cut. It
works more smoothly and cuts more evenly than standard
It worked so well on the cheese I decided to give it a try on some other
items. The extra sharp blade allows
me to cut nearly paper-thin slices of tomato, less than 25% the thickness
required with my standard cutlery. It
works great on a loaf of bread as well.
This new kitchen tool is highly recommended and a welcome addition to any
Cutco's ice cream scoop is another welcome addition to the kitchen.
This utensil, with its thick solid handle gets the job done easily and
efficiently. The thick handle
ensures a solid grip, the pointed tip allows one to effectively scoop ice cream
from the corners of any container, the thin edges allow for scooping with ease
as it slices through the most solidly frozen ice cream.
I find the shape of the ice cream scoop along with its solid build to be
superior to any scoop previously used. Needless
to say, it sure beats bent spoons, which is often the result when a spoon is
used on frozen desserts. Cutco's
ice cream scoop is highly recommended.
