cuts well
Explanation:
As Melissa has said in her peer comment to my reference comment, this is probably the simplest way of expressing it — albeit not sitting too easily in Asker's list of characteristics.

One might I suppose say "cutting quality", but personally, I don't really like that kind of formulation. Ditto 'cutability'!!

agree  Melissa McMahon: How many times have I heard "oooh, it cuts beautifully" on Bake Off? You used the phrase "how well it cuts" and I think that would work here.
