Pasta machine for me too.

I haven't bought that multi cutter yet. I was going to use it for piecrusts. Amazon has it for about $24.00.

I bought the new Wilton ribbon cutter a couple of weeks ago with a 50% off coupon from Michael's. I will say that if I had paid full price for it I would have been very disappointed. It's a cool design but the plastic blades aren't cutting the mustard or the fondant for that matter. You have to press down really hard and even then the lines are not clean. I'm sure it's one of those things where you have to let the fondant dry out a bit and then cut it but if you use a higher quality fondant that doesn't dry quickly then you will definitely have some difficulty getting clean strips.

With that being said, I wonder if Wilton thinks a bunch of kindergarteners are using their products. Sometimes plastic just isn't the best option Wilton! Oh well, they never were known for their quality.

ha! i should buy a lot of these and sell 'em on ebay at those prices!!!

but i do remember why it took me so long to buy one. i had looked for them online and baulked at the price too. even the cheaper ones seemed to have very high shipping costs! then i saw my nearest restaurant supply store had them on their website and made the mental note to look for it in-store next time i went. now i let my daughter play with my Wilton ribbon cutter icon_wink.gif

There is a multi - blade expandable wheel cutter that you can buy (5 or 7 blades).  Looks like a metal expandable rack with cutting wheels on the end of the rows.

I use the Wilton ribbon cutter. http://www.globalsugarart.com/fondant-ribbon-cutter-embosser-set-by-wilton-p-20425.html

 

Just used it yesterday for a loopy bow. I don't have the same issues that someone else posted about unclean lines or having to press really hard. It works fine for me and my MMF.
