Has anyone used this? I have the wilton cutter/embosser tool and it drives me mad. I was hoping someone had tried the FMM cutter and could tell me if it is any better.

Thanks!

I have it, it works awesome.

But I will be honest with you, I actually didn't have that much trouble with the Wilton cutter ( never used it for embossing, just cutting straight lines). Once I had it tightened, I backed it off a small turn (same needs to be done with the FMM)

With the wilton one I have a problem with it cutting a clean edge. How is the edge with the FMM?

All I have so far is the Wilton one, and I don't get smooth edges with it either...but I've found a really easy way to smooth them. I have a yellow plastic tool that's really for clay http://www.rexart.com/product6034.html (it's the one in the middle, that works so well for smoothing). Anyhow, when I cut ribbons, I just slide the tool along the edges and I get a perfect edge icon_biggrin.gif

But I do wish I had a ribbon cutter that worked better, too. This is what I want to get http://www.fantes.com/images/4412pastry_cutters.jpg

Very clean, no need to go back with a knife or anything.

I got that and hated it. The spacing between the wheels is not even, so it's awful for ribbon loops. Up to 1/4" difference, which is a pretty big deal when making bows. I contacted Ateco and believe it or not, they opened several boxes to measure the spacing and they were all uneven.

Quick question...what is the name of the FMM cutter? and where do I find it? and, is the Wilton cutter the one that comes with several wheels? I think I have it, but don't know how to use it icon_redface.gif

Thank you to all!

I like the Wilton..you do need not to put the screw too tight so it rolls easy and some pressure when you cut!

I found a pastry cutter on ebay that cuts multiple strips at the same time (adjustable to size them) for $20. Love it!

I have the Wilton ribbon cutter, and I hated it at first... I figured out that if you hold the handle completely upright while rolling it, it cuts MUCH MUCH better and actually gives a clean cut. Also, it helps a little to chill the fondant for a few minutes prior to cutting.
