Buy cheese or buy cheese wheels – but how do you cut out the cheese pieces correctly ?

Divide the whole cheese wheel into cheese pieces or cut them into pieces

The ideal piece of cheese cutting technique – buy cheese or buy cheese wheel, but how to cut ?

More and more often our customers buy large pieces of cheese or whole cheese wheels for several cheese connoisseurs (in a circle of friends or family), in order to buy cheese free of shipping costs and to save money again with the cheese price by the cheese wheel purchase.

Customer question: I bought a cheese wheel. How do I cut a cheese loaf into nice pieces of cheese so that everyone gets a nice piece of cheese ?

We are very happy about this, because also for us the “cutting out pieces of cheese from the cheese wheel” means a lot of work. When our customers buy whole cheese wheels, it is our job to pack the cheese loaves well for transport. So in the end a big cheese package goes on the journey and not many small cheese packages.
