Cheesecake is always a delicious and welcome dessert whether at a family gathering or a formal celebration. The texture of cheesecake is usually very creamy, melt-in-your-mouth, and delicious. The appearance of the cheesecake is also crucial to attracting the eye. The aesthetic appearance and cutting method can increase appetite and enhance the overall dining experience. Cutting a cheesecake into even, aesthetically pleasing pieces often comes with a certain sense of ritual, especially during celebratory events. This adds to the celebratory vibe and makes people feel special.
But when it comes to the issue of how to slice a cheesecake neatly, many people feel confused.
Traditional Way To Cut Cheesecake
When you use a traditional knife to cut a cheesecake, it typically involves the following steps:
1. Preparation: Firstly, make sure you have a sharp knife and a towel soaked in hot water. A towel soaked in hot water is used to wipe the blade between cuts.
2. Chilled before cutting: Cheesecakes are usually cut while they are in a chilled state to maintain their shape and texture.
3. Cutting: Slowly cut a slice along the circumference of the cheesecake. After each cut, use the towel soaked in hot water to wipe the blade to remove the cake residue. Then, repeat the above steps until you have cut enough slices to meet everyone’s needs.
While this traditional cutting method ensures that the cheesecake is cut evenly and neatly, it requires the blade to be wiped with a hot water-soaked towel before each cut, which can be time-consuming and labor-intensive. This can be a significant waste of manpower and time for a company.
Ultrasonic Cutting Cheesecake
Ultrasonic cutting of cheesecake involves the use of high-frequency sound waves to achieve precise, clean, and efficient slicing.
Ultrasonic food cutting machine works by generating high-frequency vibrations in a cutting blade. These vibrations create tiny, rapid oscillations in the blade’s edge, which produce a series of extremely small and controlled micro-vibrations at the point of contact with the cheesecake. These micro-vibrations effectively break the molecular bonds of the cheesecake, resulting in a clean and smooth cut.
- Precision: Ultrasonic cutting provides exceptionally precise and clean cuts. It allows for intricate designs and intricate shapes, making it ideal for cheesecakes. This precision ensures consistent portion sizes and a visually appealing presentation.
- Reduced Compression: Unlike traditional cutting methods, the ultrasonic cutting machine minimizes compression of the cheesecake. Traditional knives can squish or deform soft cakes, affecting their appearance and texture. Ultrasonic cutting avoids this issue, preserving the cake’s original structure and texture.
- Minimized Crumbs: Ultrasonic cutting significantly reduces the production of crumbs. The micro-vibrations of the blade essentially melt through the cake instead of tearing it, resulting in smoother edges and fewer loose crumbs.
- Increased Efficiency: Ultrasonic cutting is efficient and can be automated, which is beneficial for commercial settings. It can reduce labor costs and improve production throughput by swiftly and consistently slicing cheesecakes.
- Hygienic: Ultrasonic cutting blades are easy to clean and sanitize, ensuring food safety and compliance with hygiene standards.
- Customization: Ultrasonic cutting allows for customization in terms of slice size and shape, making it suitable for various cheesecake styles and sizes.
