What is the advantage of copper cookie cutters? Are they worth the extra $$$ at all?

I'm donating some cookies to my son's school's "Project Graduation" and I wanted to do graduation gown cookies. The only cutter I've managed to find on line is a copper one that is almost $13!

(alternatively, if anybody knows where I can get one that is not copper, please steer me that way!)

It is all about collecting.Copper cutters are considered a family heirloom which can be kept for generations!Copper is durable and will stand up for along time.Do you need copper cutters? I don't think so! I have one or two cutters that are copper but the rest are cheap tin and cut just as good!!

try ebay there are several cookie cutter sellers thst are very resonable.

I absolutely LOVE my copper cookie cutters. I wish all of my cutters were copper, but then I wish I could use only top of the line any time I bake. icon_wink.gif

I love my copper cookie cutters -- they are so durable and the sizes are big. Most of my cutters are regular tin -- but I wish I had all copper. I try to add one or two copper cutters a month as time goes along. I doubt I'll ever be all copper -- but I am trying to get as many as I can because the quality is so much better than tin.

They are an investment..and I love the size of them. Sometimes you can find them more inexpensively:

There advantages to both. Tin cutters are inexpensive, and more detailed. Copper cutters are sturdier and usually larger -- and they won't ever rust! Also, I think copper cutters are beautiful and I love to decorate with mine.

My favorite copper cutter makers:

You can make your own. I buy one inch strips from a sheet metal shop in town. I've made quite a few on my own (with a little help from hubby). You will also need a pop rivet gun (hardware store) and copper pop rivets, which I buy at that shop. You'll also need a metal file to smooth out the edges of the copper strip. Be careful not to cut yourself. The whole process is not that difficult. I make either ones that I can't find anywhere else or ones that are so easy it's ridiculous to pay anyone else to make. Hope this helps. If you need any other info, just let me know.

post #8 of 8 also has inexpensive cutters (not copper). They also sell a kit so you can make your own cutters.
