The Patented and Patent Pending Portion PadL is an equal-slice pizza cutting guide and cutting board. The unique V-Groove and centering circle design allows even the most inexperienced employee to cut pizzas into equal slices. The cutting board is custom made to each customer’s pizza size and slice applications. It is simple to use, easy to clean and efficient. Cutting equal slices reduces food and labor costs and increase profits. Ideal for commercial use, the Portion PadL is made from a composition material that is NSF and FDA food safe approved. The material does not dull knives, is dishwasher safe, very durable and 100% made in the USA.
When the consumer is paying for a slice of pizza and the pizza is cut unequally, it is human nature for the customer to choose the bigger slices. Whole pizzas cut unequally on a daily basis invite customers to buy only the bigger slices. The remaining smaller slices are usually thrown away or sold as a two-for-one deal. Those discarded or give-away slices, increase food cost and reduce profits. Using the Portion PadL to cut pizzas consistently and on a daily basis into equal slices will eliminate the food loss and maximize profits.
The Portion PadL was designed by pizza business owner, Greg Getzinger. He was looking for a way to increase his pizza sales by selling pizzas to local schools for their lunch and sports concession stand fund raising programs.
Realizing the need for the pizzas to be cut equally, he searched for a pizza cutting guide, cutting device or even a pizza cutter that would efficiently ensure cutting pizzas into equal slices. Especially during the busiest and demanding lunch and dinner hours. He also wanted something easy enough to use for his employees with little or not pizza experience. Greg looked for a portion control device to buy. He observed, the devices available did not seem to be efficient or end user-friendly.
Until the invention of the Portion PadL, some of the most popular pizza cutting boards and cutting guides that were readily available were over-the-top-guides that are inserted into the pizza, which seemed cumbersome to use and difficult to clean. The other popular equal slice pizza cutting guides and pizza cutters were not custom made and could not be used for several pizza size and slice applications. “I know if I buy an item for my employees to use, it has to be simple to use and easy to clean. If it’s not, my employees will stop using it as soon as I turn my back. Frankly, I don’t blame them.”
The Portion PadL was Greg’s answer. It combines a pizza cutting guide and cutting board into one product. Designed for his employees in mind, even the most inexperienced employee who has never cut a pizza, will be able to cut their very first pizza into equal slices. Even during the busiest lunch and dinner rush hours.
We’ve been using the Portion PadL for a long time. Even our most seasoned people, when rushed during a peak cannot freehand an 8 cut or 6 cut accurately for a “slice” customer. We would usually end up with 2 pieces too big and 2 pieces too small. In many cases the small piece is unsellable. With the Portion PadL, it makes cutting our pizzas into equal slices simple and accurate.
