Cheese lovers across the nation understand just how important their slicing technique is to get the perfect bite - too thin and you can't taste the strong flavours, too thick and your bread or cracker is overpowered with cheese.

Cutting the perfect slice is made even more difficult when your cheese grater is nowhere to be found.

According to the Manchester Evening News, there's an easy way to slice your cheese with a kitchen utensil most of us have in our drawers - a peeler.

One mum shared the hack on social media and it truly is a game changer for cheddar fanatics who have never thought of it before.

Posting to Facebook group Extreme Budget DIY & Life Hacks, she said: "Probably my daftest moment ever – however, works an absolute treat.

"Use a peeler to slice your block of cheese!

"Perfectly slim slices of cheese in a fraction of the time it takes me to use a knife. #LifeHack.

"DISCLAIMER: I cannot be held legally responsible for any excess consumption of cheese that occurs as a result of trying this method out."

One person said: "This is genius! How have I never thought of this."

"That's quite genius actually," added somebody else.

A third wrote: "I have a cheese slice that does not slice cheese properly, this is brilliant! Def gonna try this."

"Love it. Have been looking for something to slice cheese," said somebody else.

Some clever people pointed out that they already figured out this hack for themselves - but for those who were unaware, it's revolutionary.
