I tried cheese a couple of times, but it was too sticky and messy, and the cost savings over pre-sliced cheeses wasn't worth the clean-up time.
Now that there is just me, none of it is worth the effort any more. Easier to just buy it pre-slced, in 2 pound packages, from the same restaurant supply store.
