The Best Cheese Gear You Need Right Now

We’ve rounded up our favorite cheese gear! Time to get shopping.

Cheese Grotto Classico 

Bid adieu to musty cheese with this handsome made-in-America storage box. The bamboo structure and clay brick interior control humidity and condensation to keep up to six pounds of cheese fresh for months. Store it on the counter for an instant statement piece. 


Beeswax Cheese Wrap

Using these wraps is a cinch: Made with beeswax, jojoba oil, and tree resin, they soften just enough to create a seal when pinched together, while the addition of cotton allows for easy air circulation (which makes for happy cheese). 

$18 for set of 3 

Formaticum Cheese Signs 

Say goodbye to smudged chalk labels—pop one of these into a wedge instead for a stylish way to show off what’s on the plate. With 100 per package, you’ll be set for all the season’s cheesings. 


Cheese Board with Laguiole Cheese Knives 

French maker Jean Dubost simplifies party prep with this oiled beech board; a handle on its side reveals a drawer that holds an accompanying cheese knife, spreader, and cleaver.  


Porcelain Egg Spoons 

This staple of the breakfast table moonlights on the cheese plate, too: With a wide curve for scooping soft-boiled eggs, they pick up perfectly sized dollops of honeys, preserves, and more.  

$5 for set of 4 

Boska Cheese Barbeclette 

This low-profile enamel pan sits easily on the grill; fill it with cheese, then use the special spatula to smother burgers and veg with a blanket of your favorite melter. Who knew barbecue season could get even better? 


 Opinel Cheese Knife and Fork Set 

The classic stainless-steel French knife has long been a favorite for lovers of fromage, but pair it with a handy cheese fork (that doubles as a knife rest!) to truly take your picnic up a notch.
