We source our cookie cutters from all around the world including Europe, USA, China and Australia. The majority of our cutters are made from tin plate or stainless steel with a few plastic ones also. Below are care instructions to help you get the best out of your cookie cutters.
Stainless Steel cookie cutters are the most durable and sturdy of the metal cutters. While these cutters are dishwasher safe we recommend hand washing and drying where possible as dish washers these days are so powerful they are harsh even on the highest grade stainless steel.
Tin Plate cookie cutters are probably the most common cutters around. They are relatively inexpensive and tin is very pliable so can be easily made into all sorts of fancy shapes. Tin plate cutters must be hand washed and dried promptly to avoid any surface rust. I learnt a great tip from my mum in ensuring they don't rust, after they are washed and towel dried pop them into the warm oven to make sure they are 100% dry before putting them away. Being pliable is great because the cutters can be manipulated slightly if you wish to change the shape of your cutter but it also means that you need to be careful when storing them so you don't accidentally bend them out of shape.
Plastic cookie cutters are the most durable of the lot. They can be popped in the dishwasher in the top rack rack and can air dry. While they haven't been the favourite with collectors but they certainly should not be overlooked for their functionality.
