There are few things more annoying than trying to cut a pizza fresh out of the oven when you just don’t have the right tools. Basically, you hack the pizza apart, lose half the toppings, and no one gets the same size. But, the best pizza cutters can save you from this nightmare. Before we get to the pizza cutters we researched, let’s take a look at some of the important features you need to know before you shop.
Style: Unless you order a custom pizza cutter, there are generally 2 kinds: rockers and wheels. We’ve got a little bit of everything on this list, including one that just blows this rule completely out of the water.
Stainless Steel: Stainless steel is the perfect material for a pizza cutter. It’s sharp, doesn’t rust, is dishwasher safe, and it’s a really popular material in kitchens now. Maybe that’s why our top picks all use it as their main component.
Dishwasher Safe: Having a pizza cutter that you can pop in the dishwasher makes cleanup a breeze. Think about it: there’s going to be sauce and melty cheese and toppings all over it. Clean-up should be as easy as possible.
Handle Material: You’ll see 3 different varieties here. One: stainless steel. Two: rubber grip. Three: stainless steel with a rubber grip. The handle should be comfortable and have a thumb/finger guard. Having a hole to hang it from is a bonus.
Weight: Obviously, if you’re going to be using this tool to cut pizza, you don’t want it to be too heavy. Make sure it’s light enough that you can easily control it and heavy enough that it’s effective.
Blade Size: For pizza cutters with wheels, they usually range in size from about 2 to 4 inches. Larger blades will stay sharp longer but smaller blades are usually safer because they’re a little easier to control. For rocker style cutters, this spec will tell you how big the blade part of the cutter is.
