I've gone through three cutters and borrowed another one to try out in the last few months. The Zyliss palm-held model is ingeniously designed and so-so to use, but not really intuitive enough to use readily or well (and I've been a professional hand tool user in a variety of trades for the past 40 years). I tried out the KitchenAid model with the smaller blade and it was nice and heavy but unimpressive in use. I suppose the KitchenAid 4" model might have worked well, but it has some negative features I discovered during my research. The hanging hole is set perpendicular to the blade - not a good idea for hanging against a wall. The handle is metal and plastic and smooth (not conducive to maximum grip friction) and not shaped well for good torque control. The pistol grip is nice, but doesn't really add to the control of the operator. Lastly, the axle is a bolt and nut and apparently isn't completely stainless and eventually needs tightening because the locknut nylon is affected by machine-washing temps.

I'm not surprised Mario Batali's stainless 4" pizza cutter was put out by Copco - I've had a coated, cast iron frying pan by Copco since the early 1970's and it's in exactly the same condition as when purchased - solid, beautiful, functional and a joy to use and own. This pizza cutter has the same attributes. It's really well designed ergonomically, esthetically and functionally. The axle is permanently riveted (no bolt and nut to eventually go loose or rust after machine washing) with what appears to be a single-piece axle/rivet, surrounded on either side with what appears to be neoprene washers. The wheel is riveted precisely enough that there is no slop whatsoever, yet the wheel rotates perfectly during use with no discernable friction. The oval handle, covered with the typical soft grip we see nowadays on contemporary tools, gives a great amount of control through grip friction and torque. The fit and finish of this tool is beautiful, with no discernable manufacturing flaws. In use, it cuts like gangbusters - one quick slice through and you're done. No need to back-and-forth to get the job done (and I bake thick-style pizza's). This thing is really heavy and substantial in the hand. Much, *much* better than anything I've used before. Obviously designed by someone who knows what they're doing. The price ($15 when I bought it) was ridiculously low, considering the workmanship and quality. I'd recommend this pizza cutter to anyone serious about their pizza. Thank you, Mario Batali (one of my favorite Food Network chefs)!

This is the biggest and heaviest pizza wheel this guy has ever seen... it'll do a number on a pizza but it's really overkill unless you have a pizza shop...

Most disappointing is that the rivet in the center of the pizza wheel is rusting after two weeks... maybe it's from being put in the dishwasher... I don't know, maybe that was in the instructions... but does anyone read instructions on pizza wheels?

The large diameter wheel cuts the pizza without pushing the toppings around. The small indentations are there to help stop it from dragging the toppings along with it. The handle is a grippy, comfortable to hold shape. Clean-up is a snap -- it rinses right off.

I have four pizza cutters of various designs, and this is the one I always reach for. It works very well.

Get it, you won't be dissappointed. Its very slick looking and well constructed. The only note I would add is, Like Ferrari's it takes time to clean properly.

This pizza cutter is well made and can really cut a pizza. If you are in the market for a well made pizza cutter, then this is the one you need. It is very nice to make one pass with this cutter and your ready for your slices of pizza to be served. The blade on this cutter is very sharp and beveled just right, so once you make a cut it slices right through and seperates the cut of pizza allowing you to pick it up eat it. No more having to work for your old pizza cutter to slice a pizza pie, because this pizza cutter means business and stylish on top of that.....

This is the most impressive cutter I've EVER seen, and I've seen lots of them (mostly on their way into the trash because they wobble, or anger me in some other substantial way!) It's true, fast, sharp-edged, fits nicely in the the palm, and dishwasher too, with no tears - ITS tears, you understand. I would buy another one if 'small grays' carried this off in the night. Great price, great tool, fast service. Highly recommended.

I LOVE this cutter. It won some reviews so I ordered it. I want a few more for my pizza loving friends but it isn't available. Hope it is again soon. It is very sharp and I made the mistake of cutting on my Silpats once. Big mistake. I now have big slits.

We purchased this pizza wheel because the one we'd had for years was getting very rusty. We checked out many and settled on this one because it had the size we wanted, it looked well-designed and substantial, and it had very good reviews.

The good news is that this pizza wheel lived up to our expectations in all ways except one: After only two times in the dishwasher, it has begun to rust on the parts that connect the wheel to the handle. The product description, as well as what's stated on the packaging, labels this stainless steel wheel as being dishwasher-safe.

We have decided to keep it. We washed it well by hand to remove the rust and will wash it by hand from now on, treating it like a good knife. Our reasoning is that this rusting is likely to be a problem on all pizza wheels, so we might as well keep this otherwise high-quality one and just be sure to dry it quickly and thoroughly after washing by hand.

There are many pizza cutters on the market that are much cheaper, and some do actually cut pizza.
This one is well made -- there is no wobble of the wheel or blade, the handle is comfortable, with a blade guard. The cutting edge is sharp and it has enough weight to cut rising crust pizzas easily and with little additional force.
Cleanup is easy -- running hot water washes residue readily from the stainless steel blade.
