    using the pizza cutter

    Somewhere here I read a post about using a pizza cutter for neatly cutting fudge. Today I made rum balls. Up until this time I used a knife to cut the flat rectangle before rolling the pieces. Even Pam on the knife was still messy. The pizza cutter worked like a charm. My brownies usually have peanut butter cups and mint patties in them. Pizza cutter to the rescue again. Thanks, whoever you are with the great idea.

    Used the pizza cutter to slice a tray of 1/2" caramel for individual wrapping. Resulted in wonderfully even pieces.

    I have an Aunt who used hers for cutting noodles and "Pot Pie". For thos who don know Pot Pie, it is noodle dough cut into larger squares & cooked in broth like your noodles. It was my dad's favorite meal and I still make it occasionally for us.
    Happy cooking,

    That is just what my sister told me that she did. She added that she was glad that a pizza cutter was good for something.

    I use my pizza cutter to cut my dumplings for chicken and dumplings. Also good for cutting homemade noodles.

    I love the picture you have beside the comment cleodaisy. That would make a beautiful applique, could you share?

    I try to make more than one use for all of my gadgets. My grapefruit spoons are great for scraping seeds and membrames out of hot peppers and also if you just cut the top off of a kiwi you can use the spoon to eat the insides without peeling it. My cake turners/spatulas are also used to chop kids food into small pieces making it easier for them to eat or be fed to. I bought a plastic long rounded pizza cutter years ago for the kids and it cuts so many things in my kitchen and does it with a lot of ease that a knife wouldn't always do. Those are just a few of my multipurpose tools.

    I've been using the pizza cutter on fudge for years!...it make it such a clean cut. Works well on brownies, too...but they must be cool enough or they accumulate on the wheel.

    I couldn't make homemade marshmallows without a pizza cutter dusted with powdered sugar!
    They stick to EVERYTHING...including each other!

    A plastic knife from a fast-food restaurant is great for cutting fudge and brownies without feathers or tears.
