As the name indicates, the Roquefortaise was developed in Europe to professionally cut Roquefort cheese; a simpler name would be a Roquefort slicer. If you want to have beautifully cut cheese wedges, simply push down the handle and the cutting wire will make clean straight cuts; producing beautiful professionally cut cheese wedges.
The Roquefortaise is also a great tool to cut any soft or semi-soft cheese, including blue, bloomy, washed rind and many others. The wire is thin and strong and will cut through the cheese easily; and when compared to cutting the softer cheeses with a knife, you won't have to worry about the cheese sticking to the wire or a smeary dull un-professional appearance when serving your special guests.
The Roquefortaise has a white plastic base for easy cleaning and is quite sturdy as its 5 lbs. weight indicates and cuts cheeses up to a diameter of 9 inches.
You will enjoy this professional quality cheese tool in your kitchen or at your party as you let your guests cut their own cheese wedges with amazement.
