Halo Pizza Wheel

I've written about pizza cutters before, but this one caught my fancy. It's similar to some I've used, but with one difference - the "halo" that flips from being a protective device to being another way to hold the cutter.

The really interesting thing is the way I naturally used the cutter when I wasn't thinking about it. When I use a regular pizza cutter - which, honestly, I use more often on biscuit dough, pasta dough, and similar items than I do on pizza - well, anyway, with a regular cutter, I tend to position myself so the cutter it to the right (I'm right handed) and I'm sort of looking at the left side of the cutter as I cut.

Needless to say, this isn't the best way to get a straight or accurate cut.

When I grabbed the "halo" part of the Halo Pizza Wheel, I positioned it right in front of me, since I as using both hands. And I tended to look down from above it, which meant I was seeing both halves of what was being cut.

When I'm cutting a pizza, this isn't a big deal. But when I'm cutting pasta dough and I want even strands, it sure as heck makes it easier to do a straight cut if I'm right behind the wheel.

Of course, if you'd rather hold onto the housing of the pizza wheel rather than the halo part, you can do that, too.

Who's it for: People who want to cut things using a wheel-like device.

Pros: Works well, large wheel, easy to take apart to clean. Halo protects the blade in storage.

Cons: Including that halo piece, it's rather large compared to my other pizza cutters. It still fits in a drawer, but it takes up a bit of room.

Wishes: Could it make a vroom-vroom noise? No, I guess not. Honestly, though, I wish the packaging had instructions for disassembly. I figured it out, but some folks might want a little more guidance.

Source: I received this from the manufacturer for the purpose of a review.
