We’ve come to the conclusion in the BakeryBits kitchen that anything less than beautifully made isn't worth the money. We've tried all sorts of cutters to find the perfect ones, and what we've discovered are some fabulous quality heavy gauge cutters that have been finished to the highest standard. Of course we considered lots of cutters, and although it is tempting to buy cheap ones they often rust, have rough edges and bend out of shape easily. We're of the opinion that it's cheaper in the long run to buy one that will last and there is also the romance of having good quality bakeware to play with... we like to think that if treated well good quality bakeware can be handed down the generations.
When we asked Vanessa, our in house baker, to try them out she was really impressed. "They are a joy to use. It's not just that they feel good in your hand, it's that you get a far better result from using them. They cut true, so you lose less air from the dough and as a result you get a lighter scone or biscuit."
