Thumbs up Pizza Cutter

What Santa brought me this year, a nice bamboo cutting board, just what I wanted. And a surprise, a pizza cutter. Now I have a couple of the wheels, but this tool is excellent. Shame after advertising Taste of Italy, it had a very small sticker that said made in China.

Oh well it was a gift and a superb tool. Cuts across in one rocking motion, never drags the topping and very easy to clean.

I have one too. Ours has a smaller diameter gripping area so we made some hardwood handles. The rocking motion makes short work of many pizzas.

Thumbs up Re: Pizza Cutter

Santa only brings things here for the grand kids, so you have to improvise and make it yourself.
I made my chimney transition made from stainless steel and an offcut from over the oven and front arch was ground and made into a rocking cutter. I machined a hardwood handle, mixed up some 2 pack epoxy glue, even coloured it ti match and slid the blade into it. Has been working fine for 3 years but you do need to be careful, especially washing and drying it as it will cut you without warning.
You will never use a roller cutter after experiencing one of these.

Cheers.

Neill

I use a rocker cutter too, in fact exactly like the one in the first post. I have also experimented around with making them and found you need to use 0.9 mm stainless. The first one I made was 0.55 mm and it was a bit too thin.

Thanks for the pics of your pizza cutter, I am on the hunt now for a piece of 316 SS to copy your design for a cutter of my own.

316 stainless is marine grade and not necessary, 304 is food grade and more adequate for such purposes and a little cheaper.
My cutter was made from a stainless ally, ie. not 304 nor 316 but slighly magnetic, an offcut from the stainless kit clubman that I built, 1.6mm thick. A bit like the stainless? fridge doors that you can hang magnets on!

Neill,

That looks like a fun car, what powers it? Edit... Just noticed your steering wheel is on the wrong side. And since it's your mother in law - you must make a LOT of hard right turns :-)
