Cookie Cutter Types & Caring For Them

How to care for your new cookie cutters

Once you have finished baking your beautiful cookies, your cutters will need a little TLC to keep them in top condition, ready for your next baking project.  Luckily, this is a very simple process.

The cookie cutters you will find here at Crafty Cookie Cutters will be made of stainless steel, aluminium, metal/tin or plastic.  

Plastic cutters are the easiest to clean and can be washed in the top rack of your dishwasher on a normal wash cycle.

Stainless Steel:
Stainless steel cookie cutters should be soaked for five minutes a bowl of hot soapy water to loosen any dough that is caught in the shape of the cutter.  Once the dough has loosened you will be able to wash the cutters using a sponge, or even a clean toothbrush from more intricate shapes.  Rinse thoroughly with clean water. 

The same process as Stainless Steel above.

Metal/Tin cookie cutters need to be washed as soon as possible. These cutters have the potential to rust so must be kept dry and not allowed to sit in water or stay wet for prolonged periods of time.

Pro Tip:
It important that your cutters are kept dry, and the easiest way to do this is to place them in the oven using the residual heat from your baking to completely let the surfaces dry.  

Stainless steel and aluminium cutters may also be cleaned in the dishwasher, however, this may cause the edges to dull over multiple wash cycles. 

If you cutters are made of metal or tin, they are best kept in an air tonight container to keep them away from moisture in the air to prevent rust.  

Most cutters here at Crafty Cookie Cutters are sourced in the stainless steel variety to bring you a quality, long lasting product.

Happy Baking!
