As can be seen at http://www.lloydpans.com/standard-pans/pizza-tools/cutters-and-knives/the-equalizer, the PizzaTools/Lloyd competing Equalizer product is not exactly cheap, and especially so when you add in the Equalizer Boards. Also, depending on the pizza sizes, one might need more than one of these devices. Is that true of your Portion PadL product as well, or is there a sweet spot where only one of your Portion PadLs can handle several of the most common pizza sizes? I also assume in your case, the rocker knife is extra.
Great question Peter, your concerns will be addresses in the grant application. The Portion PadL can be custom made for single or multiple slice applications. A single side Portion PadL can accommodate a single slice application, like an 8 cut pizza. For those who have a 4 cut and 8 cut application, the single side PadL can do both. For those who have several size pizzas cut into a single slice application, like 12. 14, 16, 18 and 20 inch pizzas, all cut into 8 slices, all centering circles can be custom made at no cost to the PadL.
I custom make a 2 side Portion PadL up to a 16 inch pizza, which is very popular and can accommodate two slice applications and several pizza size centering circles. Example, 8 cut on one side and a 10 cut on the other. This option allows for quite a few pizza size and slice variations, which reduces the need for a second Portion PadL. To custom make a grooved two side PadL, requires a thicker board. Anything over a 16 inch pizza makes a two side PadL uncomfortable to lift.
Peter, it depends what the buyer is looking to do with the Portion PadL. The beauty is that the PadL is custom made. For those who want it for several applications, the two side Portion PadL is the sweet spot. The two side PadL is less than 150.00 with the option for two slice and several slice combinations.
The knife is not included.
