A Cheese Cover for All Your Round Cheeses!

Cheese lovers worldwide know that there are always different kinds of cheeses! Because of this, it can be hard to find the proper storage for your cheeses in order to keep them fresh for later! If you’re a super-fan of cheese and by your cheeses in bulk – such as perhaps in their iconic cheese wheel forms – then you’ll definitely understand the frustration of trying to find or keep the best packaging for your cheese when you store it in the fridge. A smart and unique invention made to help solve this common problem is titled ‘El Corazon.’ The way this invention works is to simply slip in your cheese wheel into the protective sleeve and slide it closed when you want to store it away in the fridge. Whenever you’re ready to have a slice, simply slide it open again, and enjoy your cheese without the worry of it have hardened or gone bad. The design of the ‘El Corazon’ also sports a transparent cover to help you display your cheese when you have guests over – or to help you differentiate from the different kinds of cheese wheels you could have stocked in your fridge.

If you’re more of a simple fan or cheese or support a family where the more traditional and well-known kinds of cheeses are what you prefer to get from the grocery store, ‘The Cheese Sleeve’ is the perfect invention for you! As we all know, not all cheeses are made and formed the same way, while some might come in cheese wheels, most come in the rectangular shape we all know and love. One problem we face with most cheeses is the struggle with trying to keep them as fresh as possible after opening its package. A unique invention created by one of our clients at Mako Design is the rightfully named, Cheese Sleeve!

The material of the Cheese Sleeve is made of a stretchy material making sure that it is able to fit over any width of rectangular cheese and securely stays tightly in place allowing no air to seep through.

Cupola is a helpful, convenient, and unique invention perfect for all cheese lovers since it allows quick access, safe storage, and an aesthetically pleasing design all in one!

A Unique Invention to Help You Grate Cheese

If you find yourself putting cheese on everything, you probably constantly make use of a traditional grater.

The Zyliss Rotary Cheese Grater is a quick, convenient and unique invention to help you in grating your cheese for any meal! Simply put your pieces of cheese near the top handle, press down and rotate the wheel and watch as your cheese grates quickly and efficiently. The wheel comes in two different sizes depending on what kind of cheese you’re using (hard vs. soft) and can easily be removed for easy cleaning too. The grater is not only perfect for cheese but apparently also works well for chocolate, perfect for a fondue night!
