Best Pizza Cutter

If you’re a fan of making pizza at home, owning a pizza cutter is essential. Use a knife for the job and it will make a mess of the pizza you’ve worked so hard to craft. The right cutter will allow you to easily slice through the pizzas thick end crust while keeping the cheese and toppings intact. In my search for the best pizza cutters, each of these selections needed to be able to cut clean slices, have a comfortable and sturdy grip, as well as being dishwasher safe since washing pizza cutters by hand is time consuming and slightly dangerous.

OXO SteeL Pizza Wheel

The OXO Steel Pizza Wheel is my personal favorite. The four inch blade is big enough so it creates super clean slices, regardless of how thick the crust is or how many toppings are on your pizza. The handle is soft yet firm, which provides comfort and stability as you glide the cutter through a pizza. The added thumb guard safety features provides additional support without the worry of cutting yourself. Finally, after a quick cleaning in the dishwasher, this pizza cutter comes out looking shiny and new every time.

Bru Joy Pizza Cutter Wheel

The Bru Joy Pizza Cutter Wheel is a classic pizzeria model. It has a large four inch blade that makes it a breeze to slice through pizzas of all shapes and sizes. The handle is long with a soft grip although it would be slightly more comfortable if it were a little bulkier. Luckily, the blade is so sharp you don’t need to apply much pressure when slicing. This pizza cutter is made of stainless steel which prevents it from rusting no matter how often you run it through the dishwasher.

Outset Pizza Cutter

If a classic pizza wheel isn’t your thing, consider trying the lightweight Outset Pizza Cutter which allows you to cut by rocking the long blade back and forth. With its sturdy grip,  you’re keeping the cutting blade in one place so cheese and toppings are minimally displaced. The cutters phenolic paper construction means it will take a long time for the edge to dull, making this pizza cutter a great value. You can pop it in the dishwasher after use but its large size may make this one a bit tricky to fit in.

Kuhn Rikon Flexi Slice and Serve Pizza Cutter

Any tool that serves as mulitasker is a win in my book with the Kuhn Rikon Flexi Slice & Serve able to be used as both a pizza cutter and spatula. Although the sharp blade makes clean cuts, you may have to make a few cuts to get across a larger pizza. The ergonomic handle is stable and comfy, allowing you to apply force without slipping. This cutter is made of stainless steel and although it is dishwasher safe, the manufacturer recommends washing and drying it by hand.

OXO Good Grips Clean Cut Pizza Wheel

The OXO Clean Cut Pizza Wheel gives you lots of control, making pizza cutting easy as pie. The grip is comfortable and sturdy, with a non-slip material to prevent any accidents. You can easily grab this cutter with both hands to provide the extra force for getting through a pizza with a thicker crust. The removable handle prevents anything from getting stuck while it’s cleaning in the dishwasher and this feature also means this pizza cutter won’t require much storage space in your kitchen.
