MichelleM77 - oooh, I didn't know that! I'll be calling the Health Dept to double check on that. Thanks!

UPDATE ABOUT ROLLING EDGE - I called Joe and they do not have the machine to roll the edge over. Seeing what MichelleM77 wrote, I am not sure that is a good idea anyway if you have a commercial kitchen.

Either way, I zipped through several cookies yesterday by using the rubber/silicone jar-loosener/garlic skin remover placed on top of the cutter. I also like this idea as I am going to try to make nested sets of cutters and want to be able to nest them easily, without any bulk of anything added. But that is just what I am doing and I am not cutting hundreds at a time.

Thank you so much Tracy, for all your checking and double checking into this for all of us! I still need to call our Health Dept about the rolled edge. I'm renting a commercial kitchen starting next week, maybe they'll know too.

You are awesome, Tracy. Now I know have something to use that garlic skin remover for--it never worked well on garlic!

Same with me, but it is perfect for the cutters! Doesn't slide, easy to handle. I just buy my garlic peeled now! icon_biggrin.gif

Have fun! icon_biggrin.gif Just be very careful if you try to use metal from Lowe's/Home Depot and call the company of the metal you are looking at and not rely on the salesperson. It is not worth the risk. I really, really tried to find metal there that I could use and did a lot of research on what they had there, calling all the companies of the metal I was looking at and none of it was deemed food-safe. Even if the metal itself was not an issue, it is the way it was manufactured. That's why I went with the SS from Speedy Metals. Bakinccc had a great idea too to recyle old cutters or buy large circles and hearts and reform those.

Again, have fun! Making my own cutters had been great and really helps speed up the process for me!

Would someone please post the link to KHalstead's tutorial on making cookie cutters? I'd love to give this a try. TIA

I just thought about the edge protector, how about trying clear vinyl tubing, kind of like for air lines to your fish tank, slice it and slip over the edge of the cutter. It could be slipped off for cleaning the cutter and the tubing???? Just a thought.

Great idea! I had completely forgotten about idea as KHalstead had mentioned it a while ago and you reminded me. Thanks so much! As it is exposed to fish, one would hope it would it would be non-toxic. I will check if it is safe to have around food.

In the interim, I now use a small silicon pad (the kind you use to open jars) to place on the top if my hand starts to hurt. Normally, I don't need it, but it has helped. I will check out the tubing idea. Thanks for sharing your great concept! icon_biggrin.gificon_smile.gif

Yes that is food safe they sell it in the plumbing section of Lowes and Home Depot for water lines to refrigerators. You can get the small one and secure it down and slice through one side of it and open the tube and push in onto your cutter... the big bonus is it bends and will go around most corners. thumbs_up.gif
