Hi everyone, I was just wondering if anyone has a "secret" to cutting brownies without making a mess. I already tried dipping a sharp knife in oil, it didn't work.

Thanks in advance.

I use a plastic disposable knife. It works very well!!!

Thanks a lot, I'll try it now. Do you cut it while it's hot, or after cooling?

After they have cooled.

Sometimes a pizza wheel works for me, depending on the brownie. icon_smile.gif

i turn the brownies upside down and use a pizza cutter. i always wait until they are cooled.

My dear MIL told me to use a plastic butter knife to cut brownies. I haven't tried it yet, but knowing her, I bet it works. Let me know if anyone has tried it.

I always line my pans with parchment and pull out the brownies after they are cooled. I use a sharp long knife heated in hot water and then dried with paper towels.

Works for me.

I always cut of the edges and cut them into small pieces and pop them in the freezer. They are great on vanilla ice cream with a drizzle of chocolate syrup.

Thanks a lot everyone, I already tried the disposable plastic knife, it worked wonderfully.

punkinpie: I loved the idea of putting the edges in the freezer then serving with ice-cream. thank you.
