KitchenAid Pizza Wheel Review

KitchenAid Pizza Wheel Review
To be honest, I take my KitchenAid pizza wheel for granted these days. Until recently, I had totally forgotten my search for a good pizza cutter.  My sister was visiting and I pulled out my trusty KitchenAid pizza wheel.  When she exclaimed "where did you get that pizza wheel!", I momentarily stopped cutting the pizza and glanced down at the utensil I was using.  The memories of old wobbly pizza wheels filled my mind.  The years of having to roll the wheel back and forth a dozen times on each cut resurfaced.  I instantly appreciated the wonderful pizza wheel I was holding.

KitchenAid has become a name we can trust to make sturdy, serviceable kitchen utensils.  The pizza wheel is truly among my favorites, along with the previously reviewed ice cream scoop.  The designers at KitchenAid clearly understand what a cook needs in the kitchen.  They make durable kitchen utensils that are strong enough to hold up under daily use.


The KitchenAid Pizza Wheel


A KitchenAid pizza wheel is not what I would call sharp when compared to my chef knife, but it will easily cut pizza crust.  Unless I have burned the pizza crust, the pizza wheel will cut in one smooth stroke.  Frankly, I don't want an extremely sharp pizza wheel since my pizza pan is not self-healing. 

The blade wheel does not wobble, which is a huge improvement over previously owned pizza wheels.  It is made of stainless steel, therefore will never rust.

The handle is hefty and easy to grip.  Plus, the KitchenAid pizza wheel is dishwasher safe.

I would like to address comments about the center metal bolt rusting.  By simply rinsing the pizza wheel after each use, before I put it in the dishwasher, I have avoided any rust issue.  If you do see rust, clean it off with salt and lemon.  Simply coat the bolt with salt, squeeze lemon juice over the salt and let it sit for a few hours.  Then, wipe it clean.  Be sure to rinse with clear water after you have wiped it clean.  That will remove rust when it first starts and you will avoid having to replace your pizza wheel due to a rusty bolt. 

Every home should have at least one reliable, sturdy pizza wheel.   Now that I know my own sister doesn't have one, I'm sure you can guess what she will be receiving for the next gift giving occasion.    


Another KitchenAid Pizza Wheel


While writing this article, I noticed there is another Kitchenaid pizza cutter available that I have never seen before.  This one clearly has a sharper blade.  It comes with a blade protector for safer storage.  It does cost about twice as much as my pizza wheel featured above.

  1. Terrific sounding pizza cutter. Appreciate the review. And very much appreciate the excellent advice about removing rust from the bolt should such occur. Never knew that little trick. :)

  2. I could use a good pizza wheel. My approach has mostly been a hack job using a bread knife. Thanks for introducing me to a better way. I like your bonus tips, too. I'll be applying some of that salt and lemon to my utensils.

  3. I upgraded my old, wobbly, small pizza wheel several years ago to one extremely similar to the one you recommend. What a difference! KitchenAid is a brand I've known and trusted for many, many years, and you're absolutely right that their designers understand cooks' needs.

  4. I'm currently happy with the pizza wheel I have that I bought years ago, but if it ever wears out I'll be sure to consider replacing it with the KitchenAid. My previous pizza wheel was one of the wobbly ones and actually fell apart on me. Great review.
