Tired of pizza wheels that get clogged with cheese and knives that drag the toppings along with them? Switch to the Epica professional style cutter and see how easy cutting up a pizza can be.
Fast, Precise and Efficient Rocker Cutting
Thanks to its slightly curved demi lune shape, the Bellemain cutter slices through the entire width of the pizza at once with just a simple rocking motion. Since you're not pulling it across the pizza, toppings don't get dislodged and the crust doesn't get torn. Measuring 13 3/4"L x 3"H, it handles almost any pizza size or thickness.
Engineered for Heavy Use, Light Effort
Made of heavyweight 18/0 stainless steel, The Epica is a reliable performer in busy professional or home kitchens. But you don't need muscle to wield it; the easy grip handle and balanced weight practically do the work for you. It's dishwasher safe so clean-up is easy, too.
Much More Than a Pizza Cutter
The Bellemain is also ideal for mincing herbs, chopping vegetables or nuts and slicing large fruits. Pivoting on its curved edge, it works like a demi lune chopper, the first choice of chefs who must quickly process large quantities of ingredients. Then it scoops them up from the cutting board and transfers them to the pan.
My take on it:
This is the first time using this style of pizza cutter. At 14 inches wide, this thing is massive. The method of rocking it back and forth took me a little bit to get used to.
I used it to cut a pizza using ready-made crust and it did well at cutting it. I am 5'2" and was trying to do this on the stovetop. I felt that if I could get a little bit of leverage to use my center of gravity more over the pizza instead of beside it, it would have been a lot easier. I also started out trying to cut my pizza on a pizza pan and the cutter kept catching the edges of the pan.
Needless to say, the first couple passes were just awful but I took the pizza off of the pizza pan onto a flat surface and put a little more direct pressure into each rocking motion side to side and I was much more successful. By the last slice, it only took me one firm rocking motion to go straight through the pizza from end to end.
Now this did take me through a bit of a learning curve to practice and get my rhythm. The blade is sharp but not as sharp as a knife or even as sharp as other wheel pizza cutters I've bought. I really wish I had some way to store it and if it had some sort of cover or case because right now I'm having difficulty finding somewhere to put it.
It is very easy to wash with either soap and water or in the dishwasher.
