Lunch Punch sandwich cutters review and giveaway

We got the cutest delivery from Spotty Frog last week – lunch punch sandwich cutters! So let’s give them the soapbox and hear what they have to say about their product:

Lunch punch sandwich cutters are here to save the day!!!
This fantastic new product is special, easy, fun and healthy: Now you can cut off that unappealing crust and transform your kiddies sandwich into a healthy, fun, interactive and educational experience. The Lunch Punch® is

  • BPA FREE
  • Phthalate FREE
  • PVC Free and lead FREE
  • Made from FDA certified food-grade plastic
  • 100% recyclable (includes packaging)
  • Kid friendly and dishwasher safe

We have found that bread sizes are different all around the world. Our cutters will work with any size bread but are especially great for regular to large-ish bread. Exact cutter dimensions are 9 cm X 9.5cm X 3cm deep. Works with any size bread.

With that in mind I decided it was my turn to put them through a variety of test. We got the Match
& Munch (puzzle cutters) set as well as the Vrrrm (transportation) set, my favorite obviously being the puzzle and as someone pointed out: puzzle pieces are the sort of “logo” for autism/aspergers so they are appropriate in our household, but Fysh loves the airplane and train ones.
We made ham and cheese sandwiches and they cut so well, obviously they aren’t metal so if you are making one of those deluxe sandwiches that I used to love (my sister says I make sandwiches like a guy) you might have a bit of a problem getting them cut.match and munch lunch punch

The best part (in my opinion) is that they cut the crusts off! I hate the crusts on the bread, when I was a kid I saw a truck full of fresh bread and the workers had taken their shoes off and put their feet among the crates and on the bread (it was a cold morning) and have since refused to eat the crust unless I make the bread myself. Fysh won’t eat the crusts either and whether or not it’s a personal choice or because mom doesn’t we’ll never know.

Yes bread size differs so how much is “wasted” sort of depends on the size of bread you buy, I bought a few different loaves to try out and found that you can buy the sort of smaller health loaves and they work perfectly, the cutters just fit in between the crusts so cuts off the bits it should and not much else. And let’s face it, send bread to school in a lunch box and what comes back? Bite size chunks out of the sandwich with the crust still rolling about the lunchbox.

I decided to bake some biscuits for the cookie jar seeing as it was looking rather depleted. Sadly the puzzle pieces don’t fit into one another once the biscuit is cooked, it might just be the biscuit recipe I use though and the fact that I didn’t let it harden in the fridge before cutting it as the sandwich pieces obviously fit into another.puzzle cookies

You can even use the cutters to cut out fruit! (image shamelessly stolen from the spotty frog facebook page and instagrammed)puzzle fruit

There are 4 different cutter sets in total, the two that we have as well as the sand*wishes and Critter Cutters sets. Each set is sold separately and will cost you R200 a set (each set comes with 4 cutters). My housemate pointed out that this is a lot to spend on cutters when you could just use cookie cutters and after trying them out I can say she is right BUT the Lunch Punch cutters are made specifically to cut sandwiches and their square design helps (depending on the size of your bread) minimize wastage whereas cookie cutters waste quite a bit of bread (been there, tried that).

So would I recommend you go out and get a set or 4? Yes! I know that when I have some moola to spare again I’ll be getting the other two sets. My kid is going to have the coolest food at school and our parties and picnics will never be the same again! I’m actually itching to go picnic just so I can rock up with awesome food hahaha. Yeah I’m odd. Deal with it.

Now… if you made it this far down in my awesome ramblings you’re in for a treat! Spotty Frog has given me one of each set to giveaway! So instead of giving just one person the chance to win all four sets I’ve decided that we’ll have four winners so each will get a set. Entering is really simple, I was going to use Rafflecopter but I can’t get it to embed so instead we’ll do it the old fashioned way:

  1. Like Spotty Frog on Facebook and follow them on Twitter
  2. Like CupcakeMummy on Facebook and follow me on Twitter (if you don’t/haven’t already)
  3. Tweet about the giveaway: Win a set of Lunch Punch sandwich cutters from @SpottyFrogSA on http://www.cupcakemummy.com or share it on facebook
  4. And of course leave a comment below telling me which of the 4 sets you would like to win.

Competition will close on Sunday and we’ll announce the winners on Monday as I think that would be a great start to the new week. wpid-sign-off.png
