Small Cheese Trier
This cheese trier is used to test the readiness of aged cheese without cutting it open. When inserted into cheese a sample core can be removed, the sample is evaluated for taste and texture, the remaining plug is then pushed back into the aging cheese.
When done testing, the opening around the plug should be sealed with a smear of the cheese sample to prevent mold from entering the cheese body.
Using a cheese trier allows you to evaluate the cheese making process (flavor, moisture, acid, texture etc) earlier in the aging cycle and make adjustments needed for subsequent batches of cheese. The time you save by sampling the cheese earlier makes the addition of a cheese trier well worth the investment.

I have used a small trier before, but the quality of construction is high. Be careful of the edges, as they are sharp to cut the cheese as you twist.
This tool is great for testing how your cheese is aging. I love it! Insert, pull out and taste. Then put the trier back in the cheese with what's left of your tasting. Simple to use. Gives us a great way to test how much longer we'd like to age our cheese - or not.
Don't let the name fool you it is actually much bigger than I thought. Well worth the purchase price.
