Dog Cookie Cutter Series: Caring for Cookie Cutters

These are the care instructions for the dog theme cookie cutters purchased from our website.  (Other types of cookie cutters, e.g. those made from copper, may have different care instructions.)  These dog cookie cutters are handmade, and soldered for extra quality.  Cookie cutters that are riveted can sometimes pop apart.

Before using the cookie cutter, wash it in warm, soapy water.  It is very important to dry the cookie cutter completely. This will help prevent rust.

Cookie cutters should also be washed and completely dried after using them to cut out shapes from the dough.

The cookie cutters should be stored in a safe, dry place...where they will not be bent out of shape.  I store them in the vertical plastic storage units with drawers.

I have a huge cookie cutter collection (including vintage cookie cutters handed down from family members and found during visits to antique shops), so I have separate categories for each drawer.  The categories include:
Holiday (Valentine's Day, St Patrick's Day, Easter, July 4th, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc.)
Animals (other than dogs),
Dog-shaped Cookie Cutters and Dog-Related Cookie Cutters (dog bones, etc.),
Vintage (metal and plastic).

Happy Baking!
