I bought this little guy from Affiliate Neat 2 Eat thinking it would be brilliant for gooey things like chicken & mayo mix; spaghetti bolognaise; tuna and so on, but to date I've only tried it on ham & cheese or jam :-)
The first few times I tried it on the ham & cheese I was a bit disappointed that the edges tore, but Miss M ate 2 sandwiches instead of her usual 1 so I shouldn't argue. I then dug around to find a tutorial to see if maybe I was missing a trick - I was.
I learned that you're better off to keep the filling within the boundaries rather than just making your sandwich & cutting away like I normally do
Use the large piece to make a mark on the bread so you know where to fill to
Then you take both pieces . . .
. . . and press down
Give it a wiggle (or your assistant my help with that)
Ensure you've cut all the way through
Remove the centre section (I don't know why looking at the packaging I thought this would actually produce a heart shaped sandwich - it does produce a square sandwich)
You can see this edge has started to tear a little
And this side too
But still a quick way to cut the crusts off & gives you a standard size to work with
This is what we took out this day in our Decor Quarters
*Mini M&M biscuits (we packet-baked)
*pocket sandwich (notice it actually fits in neatly now - that's a bonus)
*blueberry food sticks
*sliced cheese stick with sultanas & craisins on food sticks
* and a Little Bellies Choo-Choo Bar
Overall I can't say I'm super impressed with the cutter, especially I now know you can achieve the same 'pocket' result with 2 sizes of the same design biscuit cutter (I'll show you that too). I may change my mind when I get around to trying messier fillings, but until then I'd say spend your $6.95 on a set of graded biscuit cutters.
