Lunch Punch FAQs

What are the Top Tips for use?

  • Use Fresh Bread. Soft, fresh bread works best.  Dry, old bread doesn’t go into the shape as well and is difficult to cut.

  • Use A Cutting Board. Make sure your surface is 100% flat.  Plates are not 100% flat, even though they often appear to be.  If you have trouble cutting all the way through your sandwich the first step is to switch to a cuttingboard instead of a plate.

  • Press down firmly. Place BOTH hands on top of The Lunch Punch® and press straight down, hard into the sandwich.  You will need to press down rather firmly.  Its not difficult, but give it a very big push down to begin with.  Then if you need a little extra kick to make the cut all the way though…

  • Twist it back and forth a few times. Once you’ve pressed down as hard as you can then twist the cutter back and forth a few times.  When you hear the plastic cutter scrapping on the cutting board you know it is cut completely through.  The pressure and twisting you need to cut a sandwich may vary.  Often the ease of the cut will depend on the sandwich fillings you use (example: peanut butter, obviously, being easier to cut than ham). 

Note:  Results may vary. Please be aware this is a food preparation tool.  Like any food preparation, your results will vary with the kind of food you use and the amount of Lunch Punch® making experience you have.   The more Lunch Punch® sandwiches you make the better you will be at it – just like baking a cake.  Environmental factors may play a role too.  Kids screaming in the background, being late for school or being a walking zombie from feeding the baby all night may affect how your lunch punched sandwich looks when it is finished.  Wish I had a tool to fix all that.  Until then, enjoy The Lunch Punch® . That’s why it’s here; to be a happy little helper for you.
