I was a little concerned about the cutter because it has a claw grip over the blade rather than the usual handle. I thought it might cause problems where getting the leverage to apply pressure was concerned. As you can see in the pictures, the cutter is basically an elongated half circle shape with red buttons on either side which basically latch the two circular blades in place. You press firmly to release the blade and slide it till the blade seats in the extended position and locks in place with a click. To retract the blades you use the same procedure in reverse.
The blades themselves are the same size as other cutters except there are two identical ones that can also be used to chop vegetables. The blades like those of most pizza cutters are not particularly sharp. They rely on pressure to sink into and split the pizza base. It’s unlikely you will cut your hand on the blade without dragging it over your skin with some pressure. The taper of the sharpened edge of the blade was fairly long to form a nice cutting wedge shape.
It works well on pizza. I was half expecting the cheese to get stuck on the blade and get dragged around but it didn’t happen. It is best to clean the cutter as soon as possible because most of the blade is hidden inside the handle and I can see it being hard to scrape off if you leave it too long. But if you do it while the cheese is still fresh and hasn’t gone crusty it cleans easily enough. It has no problem cutting through the pizza but in a confined space your hand does obstruct your view of where you are cutting as you push away from you.
As a vegetable cutter it’s a bit hit and miss because a lot of vegetables are quite firm before they are cooked. Grass type veggies are ok, but anything more substantial is probably going to require too much effort costing some precision.
It works fine for pizza but you do have to clean it quickly. The best bit for me is that the blades retract into the body of the handle so it becomes a compact shape that is easier to find storage space in. We eat pizza about once a week so for the kind of use we will get out of it I’m happy.
But here is yet another design that’s supposed to improve on something that already works. I tried it after tossing out a similar one from Oxo that fell apart. This design shares the same basic flaws as the Oxo. Here’s what’s wrong with it:
1. No leverage. Knives have handles for a reason. Cutting a pizza really is no different than cutting a steak or a pie; you need leverage to press down to make the cut. Regular pizza wheels give you that and (for pro pizza makers) it gives you speed, something good when you’re making hundreds of pizzas a day. The Casabella is awkward to hold without it wobbling from side to side and wanting to rock back and forth like a teeter-totter.
2. A royal mess to clean. Pizza sauce, cheese and toppings roll into the shroud where they are nearly impossible to clean out. The Oxy tried to solve that by snapping apart. Unfortunately it snapped apart when you didn’t want it to. The Casabella isn’t meant to do that so the gunk all gets trapped inside. Having two blades in there makes it twice as hard to clean.
3. The way the blades are supposed to lock in place while cutting is sketchy. Press too hard and the blade slips out of its “lock”. Very frustrating.
4. As a herb mincer it doesn’t fare any better. Herb mincers have 5 or more blades for a very good reason. The Casabella’s 2 blades end up taking longer to use and mash the herbs rather than cutting them as well as a good herb cutter can do.
5. It’s too tall (compare it to the Oxo) which makes it awkward to hold and control.
And finally, it’s just not worth the price. There is nothing it does “better” than a good pizza cutter.
Thought it would be better for dicing since it has two blades, but not so much. Seems as though I had to do double or triple the motions to get a complete cut than I would with a kitchen knife. Works ok on leafy things like parsley, but harder veggies like onion and celery are more bother than it's worth.
Cleaning is a pain because the blades are encased in a plastic housing, which I couldn't figure out if it should come apart for cleaning. I didn't attempt it. Cheese from the pizza got stuck inside the plastic holder, and I had to dig it out. Same with veggies. Even after a thorough rinsing I wasn't sure if everything had washed out from inside.
The blades retract completely into the unit making it less of a hazard in the drawer, but because the entire unit is so thick, it's a tough fit in most drawers.
