Two favourite kitchen tools

Two of my favourite kitchen tools are my pizza wheel and my scissors.

The pizza wheel I have is nothing fancy, just an inexpensive one. The scissors are from Ikea - they do sets of three (two small and one large) for next to nothing and I stocked up when still in the UK.

I use these cutting tools probably as often as I use my knives because sometimes they just work better! If you have young children who need their food cut up for them you need a pizza wheel and scissors.

Pizza wheel


  • Use it to cut toast before putting your baked beans and grated cheese on top. Then just grab a fork and go for it, no knife needed.
  • Great for dicing thick slices of ham.
  • Cut up your pancakes before drizzling syrup over.
  • Slice through quesadillas with no fuss.
  • Go back and forth with your pizza wheel over herbs on a cutting board to cut them up.
  • Roll over slices of cheese to dice it up.

  • Dice bread for croutons or to feed the ducks.
  • Slice pizza with scissors to avoid scratching your pans - and easily get right to the edge too.
  • Cut up waffles - I cut mine into quarters before freezing as they fit into the toaster better that way.
  • Put fresh herbs into a little cup and snip them up with scissors.
  • Cut toast into strips or quarters.
  • Scissors are perfect for dicing bacon (cooked or uncooked).
  • Snip up your cooked chicken for sandwiches, soup or salads.
  • Cut up spring onions (green onions / scallions) or chives with scissors.
Do you use scissors in the kitchen? Do you use your pizza wheel for anything other than pizza?

  1. So you use your Pizza Wheel for many things but not to slice up pizza??? I'm joking with you of course ... but that's the only thing I use it for, or should I say used it for because I'll certainly be trying out some of your ideas. I do use scissors a lot in the kitchen though I've not tried cutting up pizza with them, but I'll certainly be giving it a go. Thanks for the ideas.

  2. I keep meaning to ask...can you show how you recovered your lamp shades in your bedroom makeover? I want to do it but I'm afraid it will look like I just slapped a piece of fabric on there. LOL Thanks!
