I've never done any cookie decorating but am excited to try. I was going to order some cookie cutters but I didn't realize there were so many different kinds. Which type would you recommend (plastic, tin, copper)? Are they all dishwasher safe? thanks so much!!!
type: yes -- I have all three, several of which are hierlooms. If I like it, I buy it.
and I handwash all of them, especially the tin ones which can be easily bent.
If you've ever watch Good Eats, Alton Brown swears by plastic only (but doesn't tell how he cleans them).
I have all three. I have come to like my plastic ones better because, over time, some of my tin ones have become rusted.
I use metal sometmes but prefer the plastic ones.. they dont ben as much and as I was making some light bulb cookies for some bouquets the cutter broke at the rivets... so as long as they are put together well metal should be ok. As for the plastic ones, I put in dishwasher sometimes but usually hand wash them. The Large Wilton ones with the grips are my favirite though.
I also like the large Wilton ones with the grips. My fave though are copper. I always get them from coppergifts.com. They are very well made, ship promptly, and they have a great assortment! I've even had a custom one done! I cannot say enough good things about this company. I just tried the plastic Wilton ones last night and I thought they were pretty decent. Personally, I stay away from tin, never had any luck with tin stuff, it always rusts. Have fun on your cookie adventures!
can the copper ones be washed in the dishwasher? I think I will deifnitely get seom plastic ones. I looked at that website...wow! what a selection! I'm going to order some copper ones as well. Just wondering about the cleaning b/c I couldn't find anything on their website saying how they should be cleaned. thanks!
