When my son was very young, spaghetti was difficult for him to eat. I would use my pizza cutter to cut his spaghetti into bite size pieces, which he could then eat with a spoon. I could do this after it was placed into his bowl, which made it even quicker for me!

My husband had a stroke. It was hard for him to cut up his food, so I started using a pizza cutter to cut his food into easy to handle small pieces. I also use it for my young grandchildren that are not sure how to use a fork yet.

I never dry my noodles. After rolling the dough out, I immediate cut them. Then I cook them at once. My husband suggested that I use a pizza cutter. My noodles are more uniform and cutting is so much easier and faster.

Use a pizza cutter to slice grilled cheese sandwiches and similar foods into kid-size pieces. It is much quicker, cleaner and safer than using a knife. It also cuts the crust off of sandwiches very nicely. By M. Day, Ohio

A pizza cutter makes quick work of cutting fudge or toffee. If the candy is sticky, spray it with a little cooking spray first.

My girl friend Michelle recently shared this tip with me. She uses her pizza wheel to cut so many things: pancakes, chicken strips, french toast, anything! Particularly useful for cutting up your child's food.


When I made brownies the other day, the pizza wheel worked so much better than sawing with a knife. Try it out today!

I, like speedmom, use kitchen scissors for cutting pizza, cutting fat from meat before I cook it and a host of other things. (01/25/2010)

Being a mother of triplets I needed to cut up food for my children quickly when they were young. I found that a pizza cutter worked for way more than pizza. Grilled cheese sandwiches, any sandwich, french toast, toast, pancakes, quesadillas, and waffles. Try it you'll become addicted too!

Using a pizza cutter to cut brownies is great because the pieces are more even and the brownies usually won't stick to the pizza cutter.

Pizza Cutter for More than Pizza

Pizza Cutter for More than Pizza

As a special ed teacher for very young students with severe disabilities, school food in the lunchroom can be hard to deal with for a whole class in the short amount of time they have to eat. We use a clean pair of kitchen scissors to quickly cut pizza, meat, spaghetti, etc. into bite size pieces. A pizza cutter might not work on our school trays. The scissors work well and are quick. Of course, we wouldn't use them with a student we would potentially teach to use a knife to cut their own food. (07/09/2006)

Reminder: use only the METAL pizza cutters because the plastic or nylon ones melt at the edge with hot items! I've ruined a couple. lol (08/24/2006)
