Wondering if anybody has a good resource for decent cookie cutters. I don't mind paying a bit more for them, but I want something that will hold up and does not rust when it is washed.

My Grandmother gave me hers years ago and they are wonderful with the little wooden handles and they do not rust when washed. I am sure they do not make them like that any more, but it would be interested in something similar.

These are for gifts, so I want something decent.

Thanks

Carolyn - I don't bake cookies, but I think you could probably find some stainless steel cookie cutters through Amazon. They should not rust.

Fante's in Philadelphia has a very nice range of cookie cutters on racks, or at least they did when I used to go there several years ago. They've got all sorts of other cookware, too, and sell online as well as in the store.

there are multiple places that will make custom CCs from your design. And at least one place sells a kit so you can craft your own.

tin, tin-plated steel and copper should all give good service if cared for reasonably.

and I THINK there is a 'club' or 'forum' for collectors/traders in CCs.

here's some links;

Tex

Thank you. I do appreciate it.

I have recently found out that my 4 year old neice loves to decorate cut out cookies, so I have decided that each year I will attach a cookie cutter to her Christmas gift. This way, she will have a nice collection when she grows up and I am hoping that in doing it this way, that these cutters will always be special.

you know how we all get from about 12 to about 22 years of age so, keep copies and maybe a pic or descriptor[tion of each poem/cutter in an album in case stuff gets 'lost' through the years. Someday she may want copies of all that crazy stuff her Aunt gave her at Xmas. Maybe choose a cut-off age beforehand. I dunno.

that is a good idea too. There are a number of things I wish I could have gone back and gotten after the fact!

What a sweet idea! Your niece will love that.

You can probably find more of the older ones with knobs on places like ebay too.
