To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this as I make a LOT of dog treats and sometimes want a fancier shape than the rectangles I make with the pizza cutter.
What I loved Once you get used to the size of 'sausage' you need to fill the barrel it is so quick and easy Oh my word this is so darned quick, I was rattling out a tray after tray of beautifully shaped treats in no time at all Easy to take apart and clean Even when loaded it didn't weigh too much If you want bigger biscuits some of the shapes can be double clicked - you will lose a little of the definition but you gain more biscuit As long as your dough isn't too firm clicking the handle doesn't take too much pressure, young kids could easily do it with the mix I used
Points to Note If you are doing a large batch plan on refilling it fairly regularly - not too much of an issue as you can fill it so quickly Dough should be a dryish texture and not too firm. If it is too wet or sticky I would think using the press would be a waste of time as it would clog up if too sticky or not hold shape if too wet, and if it is too firm you could break the press. (This is the only reason I've given a 4 star rating instead of 5 star because with the right texture of dough it is 5 stars all the way) Consider what you will be baking the biscuits on - I started trying to use silicon baking sheets on my baking tray and the mix didn't stick so I couldn't get the shape. Took the sheets off and it worked just fine direct onto the cookie sheet baking tray
Word of Warning You may be so disappointed when you realise you have run out of dough and can no longer press the pretty cookies that you whip up another batch just to keep going :oD
Easy to assemble. Nice variety of shapes. Hard to get the click and press to work - ended up having to redo half of the cookies I tried to make. Maybe will eat better with practice or different dough? Good value for the price though.
Excellent cookie press! Very comfortable to hold and use! Beautiful cookie patterns to choose from and you can purchase a Christmas cookie pattern set as well! I like that the canister is clear so it is easy to see when you need a refill, and the whole click mechanism is stainless steel. A complaint would be that the stencils are plastic so I am sure and just waiting for one to break. I have seen other brands make the stencils stainless steel. Also, I wish that the canister would hold more of the cookie dough/batter. I seem to click away and find I have to refill rather frequently. I find it easy to clean I let it soak and then it is easy to wipe down. I think it’s great for any new bakers and it truly is a good price! I would definitely recommend this product :)
Se requiere practicar varias recetas a ver cual queda mejor, yo hice la de la caja y no me gustó, usé otra receta. El producto tampoco es tan fácil de manejar como lo indica en la caja, requiere cierta práctica y no rendirse a la primera. Después de tres intentos, por fin quedaron como quería, aunque los primeros intentos tampoco fueron malos, sólo no quedaron tan lindas las galletas, pero estaban ricas.
Es un producto muy innovador, pero algunas recetas de masa para galletas que he probado, se pegan o son demasiado líquidas para este producto... deberían incluir una receta que se recomiende para usar con este maravilloso artículo.
