What are your cookie cutters made out of?
Our cookie cutters are made out of Polylactic Acid or Polyactide, otherwise known as PLA. PLA is made from starch rich plants such as corn, wheat and sugar beets. The material is easy to work with and doesn't produce any fumes while printing, and has the added bonus of being biodegradable!
PLA has a relatively low melting point, and becomes soft around 170°F. Because of this, our cookie cutters are not dishwasher safe and must be washed by hand in tepid water. For highly detailed cutters, we suggest using a soft-bristled brush to clean out any flour or dough caught in the nooks and crannies.
