How do you cut brownies cleanly?
Does anyone have a good tip on how to cut brownies well? They always stick to the knife or the tops break apart. Anyone have any tips on how to get a clean cut?

To cut brownies cleanly.
I read these tips for cutting brownies cleanly, but have not tried them.

1. "For very cleanly cut brownies, chill them before cutting."

2. "To easily cut brownies and remove them from the baking pan, line the pan with foil that hangs about 2 inches over the edges. The overhang can be used like a handle to lift the entire batch of brownies from the pan. Gently peel the foil away from the sides of the brownies and cut them cleanly into squares. To avoid clumps from forming as you cut, use a plastic knife — you'll get nice clean cuts."

I think the best way to cut brownies is after you let them cool for a little while. I read someone else's posting who suggested using a pizza cutter.

Here's a little tip: when you take the brownies out of the oven, lay an extra large Hershey bar on top (I think the 1-lb. size), let it get a little melty, and then spread it out like frosting. It sets really nice and makes your brownies extra rich.

I cut EVERYTHING with a pizza cutter!
I'm all over the pizza cutter idea. I cut everything with pizza cutters and it works great. Sandwiches. Quesadillas. Pizza (of course) and yes - brownies...

I know this!
For a GUARANTEED way to cut brownies cleanly, use a plastic disposable knife. Even in hot brownies, it doesn't tear them all up. I always make sure I have some on hand so that I don't make a mess (although, that does mean that there are less ravelings to eat up!) :)

i think it depends on the texture of the brownies. the best way i believe is to cut when it has cooled already. i saw a dessert recipe on and the chef explained that brownies should be cut when they are cool.
