Default Re: Perfect Pizza Cutter - Does it Exist??

I just use a standard roller cutter on a large aluminum pizza pan that I bought from a kitchen supply company. Since the pans don't have lips on them, it is easy to cut completely with the roller cutter and my pies don't slide around.

"I just use a standard roller cutter on a large aluminum pizza pan that I bought from a kitchen supply company. Since the pans don't have lips on them, it is easy to cut completely with the roller cutter and my pies don't slide around."

Same here. I use one large pan near the oven opening to put the pizza on and cut it. I then slide the cut pizza onto an ordinary pizza pan for serving. This way I can keep the pans near enough to the oven opeing to keep them warm.

I also strope (not sharpen) my pizza wheel to keep it sharp. I strope using an ordinary kitchen steel with the steel going away from the cutting edge.

I really liked the idea of the single large curved blade cutters, but was then dismayed to discover how poorly they perform on a pie pan with a shall lip, as almost all pizza pans have (for nothing better than aesthetic reasons as far as I can tell). The large blade "trips" over the lip and leaves the crust partially uncut. As a result, I never used the darn thing. I just went back to wheel cutters and shove my pizza all over the place like you said happens to you. I haven't tried Tscar's "from the middle" technique though. I'll have to give that a shot.

Sigh.

I think I may purchase one of those flat (no lip), phenolic resin pizza serving/cutting board... Wiley schooled me on those above... and sharpen my rocker cutter. Now to figure out how to get a good edge on that... any suggestions?!

Thumbs up Re: Perfect Pizza Cutter - Does it Exist??

Jay,
sorry I didn't reply earlier!
Yes I make all things myself, as you often have trouble finding them let alone justifying their costs.
This cutter was an offcut from my stainless chimney funnel void so decided to grind the cutting edges using the sides of my 8" bench grinder (but don't get the edges hot and burnt as you change the crystalline structure of the metal and often soften them). I ground the edged until almost sharp and then a 'flap' disc or even a fine cutting disc in a 4.5" angle grinder. The thin 1mm cutting discs are made from fine abrasive and if used carefully, will hone a really nice clean smooth edge.
I the grabbed a piece of blackwood off cut laying aroind, cut a thin groove in it with the table saw, mixed up some 2 pack adhesive and glued the blade innto the handle.
Wholla! all done bar the clear sealer.

Cheers.

Neill
