SizesSep 17, 2010
I could not find the sizes in the description, so here they are for anyone else who may be wondering.
The Ateco 4 Piece Stainless Steel Round Cutter Set contains cutters in the following sizes:
I haven't used them yet, but they feel sharp yet somewhat flimsy. I would be careful storing them so that they do not get dented, and as others mentioned, the plastic box that they come in will not hold up for long as a storage box. The tops of the cutters are turned under, and are comfortable to press down on while cutting, and the generous height makes them ideal for biscuits or even to use as a food mold. As with most stainless steel products, these cutters are made in China.

They Cut LikeThey ShouldAug 24, 2006
By R. Calvo
Nice sharp edges, plenty of variation in size. I'd replace them with the same product if I lost them. Dropped a star because the sizes aren't stamped on each cutter. Not that I don't have a ruler, but it would have been more convenient when a recipe calls for a specific diameter to be cut. :)

Good product, good price~Jul 28, 2005
By H. RHEE
I got this cutter for my baking class (culinary school). It's great for a students' budget (compared to the plastic ones made in France that costs five times as much) but the downside is it will rust (the cutter and the inside of the tin) if one does not properly clean/dry it. Mine does not have the size markings on the actual cutters so I had to measure mine before using it (for very picky chef instructors!). Just take good care if it and it will treat us well!

Boxed Cutter Sets Reduce ClutterMar 24, 2002
Over the years, I've collected lots of cookie cutters. I keep most of them in a plastic storage box in my pantry because I try to keep my kitchen drawers from getting too cluttered. However, I do keep some of my sets of Ateco boxed cutters in a drawer because their storage cans are small and compact, and I use them a lot. Ateco is a quality manufacturer of baking accessories. I own several of their products: a revolving round metal cake stand; a large pastry decorating set, including icing bags and tips; and baking spatulas.
The Ateco line of boxed cutter sets includes cookie cutters with holiday and seasonal designs; a bridge set; sets with hearts, stars, animals, toy shapes, alphabet letters, gingerbread families; mini cookie cutters; dog bone biscuit cutters; pie cutters; aspic or jelly cutters; and biscuit/pastry cutters - some come in boxes, and others come in storage cans, like this one. This set has 11 plain round stainless steel cutters in graduated shapes, from 3/4 inch to 3 5/8 inches. They nest perfectly in their storage can, which has a tight lid so the cutters don't spill out into the drawer.
I only use a few of these round cutters on a regular basis though. I find that most of the cutters are too small for anything other than specialty baking. Although Ateco says that their cutters are dishwasher-safe, I hand wash mine because I've found that the dishwasher doesn't always get them clean.

Cornstach will save these from rust!Dec 04, 2011
By Bradley Nelson
These are fantastic cutters. I love the 11-piece set because there is so much flexibility, whether you're making biscuits, cookies, raviolis, or whatever. And for $15, that's quite a bargain. Far, far, far better than buying some cheap 4-piece set at Target that will bend and end up misshapen.
The big concern with these cutters, however, is rust. They need to be dried well. However, if you put a bit of cornstarch in the bottom of the tin, these WILL NOT RUST! Guaranteed. Just wipe them off before using. Wash and dry normally, but don't stress about whether or not there's a still a drop of water on them. Highly recommended.
