A while back we did a week of reviews on the various types of pizza cutters. The nice folks at KitchenAid have sent me their new pizza wheel that is part of the Architect Series. The first thing that struck me about this wheel style cutter is the heft and weight, this thing is built for pizzeria kitchen duty. It has a nice ergonomic handle with finger guard and the wheel is made of stainless steel. The handle fits the hand well and has a good angle for downward pressure when cutting. You can cut more than pizza with this, I tried cardboard as well and it didn’t have any problem (no kidding, be careful you don’t cut through a pizza box). It can be disassembled for cleaning but I don’t see the need for that as it’s dishwasher safe.
There is a running punchline to any joke in our house: “I like cheese”. The joke is that it isn’t a punchline or a good way to end a story but very much a clear statement of fact. Indeed, blessed are the cheese makers.
But enough of cheesy jokes, let’s look at the Henckel cheese set. This five piece set of cheese delivery cutlery (that is counting the wooden serving board) includes 4 cheese knives for cutting hard cheeses and spreading. And also a classic two-pronged fork for serving cheese as using fingers is not polite. Featuring the famous Henckel lifetime warranty and 18/10 stainless steel that is dishwasher safe. I would recommend a good treatment of food grade oil on the handles and cutting board occasionally.
It’s the Easter weekend and talking about eggs only seems appropriate. This set of eight porcelain egg cups with spoons is a very simple and elegant choice. Don’t be mislead by the number 8, it’s 4 cups and 4 spoons. They are dishwasher safe and have cute little chickens incorporated into the design.
Perfect for Sunday mornings with toast soldiers.
Tina Tsang from England has hand crafted these pewter cutlery delights based on characters from Alice in Wonderland. Each piece has a magnifying glass inserted into the head of the character to allow you to see your food more carefully or read a menu or any fine print. This definitely would be big in Japan. Hand wash of course. Rather expensive at £42.50 per piece of flatware. But it’s more than just cutlery, it’s art!
