Pie Markers & Cutters
What Is a Pie Cutter?
A pie cutter, as its name suggests, is a utensil used to cut or slice dessert pies such as fruit pies like apple pies, nut pies such as pecan pies, and even cream pies (a meat pie cutter is specifically used for—you guessed it—meat pies). The concept behind a pie slicer is that a restaurant, deli, diner, bakery, pastry shop, bake shop, or any food-service establishment that serve pies should portion out slices of pie with the same size to customers and patrons so that they do not feel that they are shortchanged in any way.
A pie cutter or pie slicer will be available in several cuts and slices, depending on what you require for your restaurant, deli, diner, bakery, pastry shop, bake shop, or any food-service establishment. Here at Rapids Wholesale, you can choose from a pie slicer cutter that makes six and seven slices.
Some pie cutter or pie slicer models also have a built-in pie marker by marking out the cuts of the pie, which will ensure that your customers will receive equal portions. This is especially important any food-service establishment. A built-in or stand-alone pie marker will often feature teeth to easily mark the cut lines on top of the pie (a pie top cutter will also have a similar feature).
Important Points to Consider When Purchasing a Pie Slicer Cutter
Before going out to purchase that pie dough cutter for your restaurant, deli, diner, bakery, pastry shop, bake shop, or any food-service establishment, there are several important things to consider. For instance, it is essential to put into consideration how many cuts your pie cutter will produce. For instance, of you are running a bake shop, you might want to purchase a pie slicer that will produce considerably large slices (meaning less slices) so that customers will feel that they are getting their money's worth. For those looking for a cutter for home use, a pie slicer or pie cutter that produces more slices will be a better choice.
Another thing to consider are the types of pies you are going to serve in your establishment. There are several types of pies available to customers nowadays, ranging from the simple to the beautifully sculpted pies with lattice top. For the former, a simple pie cutter or pie slicer will usually suffice, but for the latter it is a good idea to choose a pie lattice cutter. A pie lattice cutter is built to cut more complex pies, especially those with more elaborate decorations so that you won't run the risk of ruining a beautifully designed pie.
