Since you mentioned cutter pan in your topic heading, I interpreted that to mean the type of pan as defined in the forum's Pizza Glossary at http://www.pizzamaking.com/pizza_glossary.html#C
. There really aren't that many companies that manufacture cutter pans. Lloyd Pans/pizzatools.com is one manufacturer of cutter pans, http://www.pizzatools.com/SearchByCategory.aspx?CategoryCode=052000
, and another is American Metalcraft, http://www.amnow.com/Pizza-Trays/CAR-Pans/CAR-Pans-%e2%80%93-Tapered-Nesting
. The cutter pans are usually bare aluminum that become seasoned/darkened with use or hard anodized aluminum. I am aware that Allied makes steel pans with a nonstick "black buster" coating, such as shown, for example, at http://www.akitchen.com/store/AL-SRPS12.html
, but I believe those pans have a rolled edge and are also straight-sided and are not cutter pans. If they have a cutter pan at the akitchen website, I could not find it after searching the website using the keywords "pizza" and "cutter" (separately). I looked at all of the pans at Allied's website, at http://www.alliedmetalusa.com/index.html
, and could not find any tapered pan or any other pan for that matter, whether of aluminum or steel, that was called a cutter pan or other comparable name.
If I missed the pan you have in mind, perhaps you can tell me more explicitly where you found it at the akitchen website. It is also possible that member JConk, who lives near a supplier of the Allied pans, can tell us whether they sell a steel sloping-sided cutter pan, or any other type of cutter pan for that matter. Since John has at least one Allied pan, he may be able to tell us whether it can be used to make cracker-type crusts.
