There are two types of pastry cutter. The first is a small fluted wheel attached to a wooden handle, and it is used to cut rolled out dough.
The second type of pastry cutter (also known as a biscuit cutter) is generally made of metal. It can be round, square, oval, patterned, plain or fluted. It is hollow, with sharp edges, and varies in size from J-inch to 7-inches in diameter.
This type of pastry cutter is not only used to cut dough, but any substance that is rolled out or flat and needs to be cut into a uniform shape, for example marzipan and bread slices.
Made in various sizes, the biscuit cutter is used to cut any substance rolled out flat.
