How to Find the Best Truffle Slicer
Truffle slicers are one of the most specialized tools in the kitchen, and as such, it pays to look for certain qualities to ensure you’re getting the best. Knowing what to look for in your shavers will result in a great user experience, render perfect slices of truffle every time, minimize the chances of cutting yourself, and eliminate any waste. Take a look at what we consider to be the two most important elements of a truffle slicer so you can make a well-informed decision, choosing the shaver that's best for you and your kitchen's needs.
The most important element of any slicer is, of course, the blade. Truffles are notoriously difficult to slice, especially into the paper-thin slivers preferred for eating and garnishing dishes. The truffle slicer makes easy work of this tedious task with a keen-edged stainless steel blade. While carbon steel is harder, and retains its edge longer, stainless is preferred for its flexibility and high level of corrosion resistance. Since the blades on our shavers are removable, and easily sharpened, stainless is the ideal metal for this task.
A relatively simple device, the only other thing to look for when purchasing a truffle shaver is its handle. Many slicers on the market are shaped like a paddle and are often stamped from one large piece of metal. Wielding such a keen blade demands that you have full control over it at all times, and these slippery metal handles prove rather difficult to use. That’s why we prefer, and offer, slicers with easy to grip, rosewood handles. Wood not only looks elegant but offers better friction and control than steel, offering superior hold over even plastic and silicone.
