2.0 out of 5 stars
The reality is, it's not all that good at all..., 22 April 2012
Bought this for piping lettering. Now, I'm a fairly accomplished bag piper but had a huge job to do which required a lot of name piping so thought I would try this little gadget out and hopefully save some time. First off, even with a smooth piping consistency it just would not work with royal icing, all noise, no action. So - I hand piped that big job. I then had a go piping with buttercream - this is what it recommends you use. Even when you take pressure off the button you get a massive amount of buttercream still coming out of the tip which makes using it for writing a non starter really as you have no control over it.
However! It does have 1 redeeming feature. The filling nozzle. Makes filling cupcakes a pleasure, though one more moan to finish the review - you have to refill the flipping thing after filling half a dozen cupcakes...
