1. A versatile, easy-clean grater.
Promising review: “You can slip the two sides from each other and use them individually. This means you can use these as a flat grater as well as a ‘box’ grater, which I like because you can grate over a bowl or whatever if you need to. It also makes it super easy to clean, especially in comparison to a regular box grater.” —Kacie L.
2. Or rotary grater for larger cheese hunks.
Promising review: “This is a very meaty cheese grater. We eat a lot of Romano cheese and this product just begs you to grate more. Very easy to take apart for thorough cleaning. For anyone who has gotten fed up with buying ‘ready to break’ hard cheese graters at the local superstore, like me, this is your solution!” —pmeda
4. And bags that treat your cheese the way it ought to be treated.
Promising review: “Excellent cheese keepers — no more clear wrap with eventual mold growth over time. I reuse my bags as well usually for the same cheese, and I do love that the bags also contain the cheese odor with some exceptions ( camembert, e.g. yummy but stinky).” —Maya
5. This pair of specialty knives gets high marks.
Promising review: “Love these knives! They are one solid piece so I don’t expect them to fall apart at the handle. Very modern and sleek. They have a heavy sturdy feel. They look amazing when setting up my cheese & chacuterie boards.” —Brent T. Zimmerman
6. And these affordable spreaders are in it for the long haul.
Promising review: “The spreaders are well designed, nicely weighted, solid, feel good in your hand, and are easy to hold. They have no seams or joints and are dishwasher safe which is another plus. These knives will stand the test of time.” —Piggerts
7. This book will teach you how to enjoy all kinds of cheese.
Promising review: “This is an exceptional book. Not only is there a complete coverage of international cheesemakers and their products, but a recommendation of appropriate wines for individual cheeses.” —Gerald Forbes
8. A sturdy slicer to help you achieve optimal thinness (or thickness).
Promising review: “This is the best, sturdiest cheese slicer I have ever used… For anyone who prefers a cheese slicer over a knife then this is the best one I have ever seen.” —Lifelong Reader
9. Or, if board slicers are your jam, give this one a try.
Promising review: “It works great, slices thick and thin, and has never snapped a wire (and I’ve had it more than a year now)… It’s easy to clean, I just run a toothbrush down the groove if anything sticks.” —Judi W.
10. This book of amazingly cheesy recipes will keep you fed.
Promising review: “Refreshing, informative, and packed full with cheese-loving recipes… I got this book as a present, but every time I see it I can’t help but pick it up and start flipping through to learn something new.” —David R.
11. And this book will guide you as you start making your own.
Promising review: “I got this as a gift for my dad and he loves it! He says it is easy to read with lots of photos and easy to follow directions and examples. It is his first time making cheese and he is happy with this as his guidebook.” —Sarah Jeter
13. This slate board set is sanitary, simple to clean, and equally easy on the eyes.
Promising review: “The board is a solid slate slab and feels premium. The included knives are also of great quality. I also really like the included chalk so you can scribble what kind of cheese you are serving right on the board, a very nice touch.” —Amanda Z
14. And this marbled-based dome could not be better.
Promising review: “Both the glass cover and marble base are heavy and sturdy. The marble base is more sanitary than the more common wooden bases. There is simply no way to improve this cheese dome.” —Patty
15. And finally, rumor has it this heavy duty press makes the *perfect* grilled cheese.
Promising review: “Never owned one of these before, but can understand why these are so popular in restaurants… I’m very happy with this purchase and the quality.” —Lynnster
