Cookie cutter sites? - Page 2

post #16 of 30
Simon's doesn't have a website any longer. Is there anyway to get Simon's cutters?

I think Simon's has been gone for a while now. I've seen some of their cutters on ebay but you'll have to sign away your firstborn male child to afford one. icon_rolleyes.gif

vicki0052 - Simon's cookie cutters are awesome. I have several and wish I had more. Every now and then, one will be listed on ebay and there are always a lot of collectors who bid on them. John Newton, who owned the business and made the cutters, has retired. At one time, I heard his wife, Debi, was going to publish a book about John and his cutters, but I haven't heard anything lately. Maybe someone else knows?

Simon's Cutters are a unique treasure. They are large copper cutters and have a flat back and a nice, solid handle. The name Simon's is written in cursive on the handle.

If you look under the Events Section of this website, go to 2009 Central Florida Fair. Simon's cutters were used for several of the cookie entries. My daughter used my cutters to make her Mardi Gras masks, a jester mask, a butterfly mask (measures 11 inches across the top), and one with "feathers" on the side of the mask called Midnight in the Garden. It is a Simon original and I think the only one like it ever made.

Has any tried FancyFlours.com? Every year they issue a limited edition set of custom cutters--pricey but incredible. Last year they had the 12 Days of Christmas. This year they have a Dutch Canal House set. The site has some really, really clever decorating ideas.

I disagree stainless steel is far stronger than copper as a metal.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tensile_strength

As you can see from the table the tensile strength is much greater for stainless steel than copper.

Copper, is much easier to manipulate than stainless steel and is a softer metal.

I have seen plenty of make your own cookie cutter kits in copper and tin, but none in stainless steel.

While the copper cutters are nice, and I do have many, they are very expensive compared to stainless steel. You can also use the stainless steel cutters for gumpaste and other areas of cake decorating whereas the copper tends to have a much thicker cutting edge.

Thanks for all the great sites? Any chance of getting this thread pinned so that we always have it up top?? Or at least get all the links consolidated to one post and pinned?

We're not talking about a piece of copper and a piece of stainless steel of identical thickness here. Stainless steel cookie cutters are made of thin metal easily bent out of shape by your bare hand. The high end copper cookie cutters are made of thick copper that are super strong and durable. As basic metals per se, the argument would be different.

Sorry if I confused the two matters, but I do still maintain that the solid copper cookie cutters on the market are indeed stronger than the cheaper stainless steel ones out there.

Here's another cookie cutter site that I love for a different reason, they have an assortment of "regular' cutters but they have a collection of very special cutters, you can read all about them here in the Aunt Chick's section, I love that the cutters and molds are available to purchase again, really cool, hope some of you get to try these out icon_smile.gif I ordered all of the sets so I have my own. I am so beyond bummed I'm missing making cookies this season when I know so much more than I have in years past. IMO this is the ultimate cookie time icon_smile.gif


The site is Grandma's Cutters, but make sure you go to the Aunt Chick's section and you can read all about these really neat sets and their history thumbs_up.gif

Hi everyone, I want to post regarding Ecrandal. They are a small, relatively new cookie cutter company, a real "mom and pop" enterprise if you will. They make probably the sturdiest copper cutters on the market. The workmanship is top notch and Eric (the dad) makes all the cutters himself.

I am hoping in the not too distant future (hopefully when I update my website) to do a spotlight on this company as well.

They really are a dream to work with and the cutters are top quality. icon_biggrin.gif

(mod edited for clarity.)

bobwunderbuns,
I am so glad to see your message. I really admire you for posting this.
I have been dealing with Eric and Jamie - ecrandal cutters - www.ecrandal.com for some time now. Each time I order I am amazed at the quality of the cutters. I just love all their original designs. Eric and Jamie run their small business along with a little help from their six young children.
For all of you who haven't looked at this website, I hope you will take a few minutes and take a peek. There is a great family picture posted on the website in addition to some amazing cutters. I have already give my children the website and my Christmas wish list.
The customer service I had received every time is beyond my expectations (and I expect a lot).
I think my favorite cutter is the cinderella coach. It is absolutely stunning. I just received the banana split cutter and now I am going to order the parfait to go with it.
I have never met Eric and Jamie, but one of these days when we are traveling through North Carolina, I hope to.

I had these cutters on my Christmas list last year, my son got them for me. I finally tried out the pumpkin cutter yesterday -- It's so cool, and the instructions worked perfectly! Can't wait to try some other designs.

www.hbcornerstore.com has free shipping on orders of $20 or more in November. I love their prices, just wish they had a bigger selection...
