egg slicer as a mozzarella slicer

Here is the direct link for: Egg Slicer as a Mozzarella Slicer.

Tis' the season for fresh tomato and mozzarella slices. Add a little fresh basil and drizzle it all with olive oil. My favorite summer-time salad!

This pin comes from Real Simple's Making New Uses for Old Things series. This idea came from Anson Smart:
Slice perfect pieces of mozzarella―and cut out the mess that goes with it. The wires divide the soft cheese into equal segments without squashing it. It's a clean cut, any way you slice it.
The key is the 'dividing the soft cheese into equal segments' part. It works beautifully. In fact you forget you're slicing cheese it feels just like slicing an egg. Obviously this works great on those premade round balls of fresh mozzarella. If your cheese, like mine, comes as a log of mozzarella, first cut it into thirds. The slices are naturally thin with the egg slicer, but if you want a thicker slice just double up the slices.

I wonder if they make larger egg slicers? Wouldn't that be handy?

The red pin award for helpful tip and very useable too!

Happy pinning!
