NonStick Pizza Cutter

seems so obvious

Take your ordinary circular pizza cutter, with its sharp stainless steel disk, and bond MOST of the sides of the disk (leaving the sharp edge exposed) with a nonstick substance.

When you slice a pizza with this, the blade goes through and the sharp edge interacts with the crust, while the coated sides prevent the cheese from sticking to the rolling blade.

Nonstick Pizza Wheel http://www.amazon.c...Wheel/dp/B000QA2GDS
$11.98 + shipping. May be used one-handed or, folded out, two-handed for tougher crusts. (If your crusts are that tough, you may be doing something wrong) [Klaatu, May 12 2011]

       How about water jets. Like they do with chickens.

       How about electrocution. Like they also do with chickens.

       Hmm. This is a brilliant idea. The closest thing I can find on the Web is a non-stick pizza cutter.   

       While you're at it, have you considered inventing some sort of spoon-like device, but with prongs to (I don't know how to explain this clearly without a diagram) "spear" larger pieces of food?

       This idea is presented clearly and concisely in two short paragraphs.

       I forsee a problem with this idea. The sharpened edge will go right through the pizza and will damage the table surface.   

       Perhaps we can put our heads together and come up with some kind of solution - perhaps a disc the size of a pizza, made of something hard and cut-resistant, such as glazed, fired ceramic, that could be inserted between the pizza and the table.

       Why limit yourself to pizza? You could easily apply this technology to all sorts of other things. Loaves of bread, for example, are notoriously difficult for the average user to divide into individual portions, or "slices". A larger version of this could render the task trivial. Of course, such a device would probably be enormous, and therefore only practical for industrial settings. Perhaps this "slicing" could be applied at the factory, before it even gets to the consumer.

       Now we just have to wait for someone to invent pizza.

       Au contraire. The title alone would have been sufficient to describe this particular idea.

       I use a large pair of scissors for pizza. Works better, easier.

       Different shape, different texture, no flavour, hard to digest, will never catch on.
pocmloc, May 12 2011

       I think they might catch on the splenic flexure.

       I'm thinking it would be pretty hard to chew a non-stick pizza, let alone cut it.
hippo, May 12 2011

       That's why you would need a special cutter, shirley ?

       But what about all the effort that goes into cutting a pizza? I already invented the battery operated nonstick pizza cutter.
Wayne Scotting, May 12 2011

       The pizza wheel in the link provided by [Klaatu] appears to be entirely coated with (or perhaps made from) nonstick substance. That might actually explain the need for both hands; plastic isn't as sharp as steel. And so that's why I specified in this Idea that the sharp steel edge needs to remain exposed.
Vernon, May 12 2011

       The funny thing is, when the cooks are away and I have to cut my own pizza, I roll the cutter back and forth along the line to be cut, yet the pizza mysteriously edges away from me. I'm wondering if there's some kind of reactionless force in action there.
MaxwellBuchanan, May 12 2011

       Perhaps the pizza simply doesn't like you.
mouseposture, May 12 2011

       Are you suggesting you would not back away, if some large being was sliding an implement up and down you in preparation for eating you?
