Customer Reviews of Joseph Joseph Adjustable Rolling Pin

Joseph Joseph Adjustable Rolling Pin, Green


New From: $59.99 USD In Stock

As innovative and imaginative as ever, Joseph Joseph have designed this stylish and useful gadget for your kitchen.  To ensure that you get an even thickness in your pastry, icing or pasta dough, use the adjustable discs on your rolling pin to raise or lower the rolling pin to the correct height.

This will ensure that whatever you are making will cook evenly and not burn in some places and be undercooked in others.  It also creates a completely flat surface which is then much easier to decorate.

There are also measurements etched into the rolling pin which serve as a useful size guide.

The discs allow you to create the thicknesses of 1/16-inch, 1/4-inch and 3/8-inch.  Made from beech, and measuring 16-1/2-inch long and 2-1/2-inch diameter, this rolling pin is both easy to clean, and easy to store!

Pros

One customer compared using this rolling pin to special rubber bands that you can buy for other rolling pins.  She much prefers this Joseph Joseph rolling pin because the discs are rigid and produce consistent results every time, rather than the rubber bands which slip and slide around and are harder to work with.

Other people also said that the rolling pin was very easy to clean.

Most people also really liked the measurements that are etched into the rolling pin as it makes sizing your dough much easier.

Cons

One improvement that could be made which was suggested by one customer was to designing the same rolling pin but with “spinning” handles to make it easier to work with.

The biggest complaint was that it doesn’t come with  1/8″ discs  as this is a fairly common thickness for pastry.

The etchings in the rolling pin can make it a little bit tricky for rolling out fondant or gumpaste as the markings can show up in your rolled out paste.

 

Overall the comments are great for this handy little gadget that looks elegant and is also functional. Particularly if you enjoy making pastry, pies, pizzas and cookies, this rolling pin is for you!!

Customer Reviews of Wiltons Cup Cake Decorating Set

Make the funkiest, prettiest and most ooh-and-ahh worthy cupcakes!

The set includes four of Wilton’s tips – 1M, 22, round tip 12 and Bismark tip 230. You also get 8 heavy duty plastic disposable icing bags, and an easy to follow instruction booklet.

So what do the customers think?

Pros

Even customers who said that they were complete beginners and who had never decorated cupcakes before said that this set and it’s instructions were “idiot-proof”. Easy to use with fantastic results.

The decorating tips that are included are a good place to start – you can create a variety of beautiful and professional looking cupcakes, and even fill them with delicious jams, buttercreams and other fillings.

The disposable bags that are included are tough and durable and stand up to inexperienced squeezing!

Cons

One customer said that she found it easy to use, but messy. Another said that the bags that she received had small holes in them, and the icing came out and made a mess. One person felt that the bags were too small, and would have preferred larger sized bags with the kit.

Another customer said that she felt that the kit should have contained couplers.  She said that it worked fine without them, but would have been even better with them.

Tips From Customers

One customer said that when the disposable plastic bags that are included in the kit have been used up, she uses ziplock bags, cuts the corner off the bag, and inserts the tips. Cheap and easy!

What is Sugarcraft?

So what is Sugarcraft anyway? Increasing in popularity all over the world, Sugarcrafting has long been popular in the UK and USA.  A recent upsurge of cooking, baking and cake decorating TV programs such as “Ace of Cakes” have made people more and more interested in creating artistic looking cakes for all occasions. The recent recession has also made it more viable to make your own cakes for special occasions rather than paying out a lot of money to have one made for you.

Some professionals, although making and decorating cakes for a living, would say that it is still more of a hobby than a business. The amount of time that is invested in making a delicate bouquet of flowers could be as much as 40-50 hours!  However, if you get hooked by the Sugarcrafting bug, the satisfaction that you feel when you have completed a work of art makes it all worthwhile!

What is Sugarcraft anyway?

Well, Sugarcraft can be described as three-dimensional cake decorating.  It covers a huge variety of styles, and includes characters and models made from sugarpaste or fondant, to amazingly lifelike and botanically correct flowers.

Fondant is usually used to cover a cake – and can be bought pre-coloured, or can be coloured to exactly the right shade, usually using colour pastes.  You can also use dusts in various colours to “paint” or brush colour onto your finished work.

Some of the most popular companies that manufacture Sugarcraft items are PME, Wiltons, Sugarflair, Orchard Products, FMM, and JEM.  You can buy a huge array of tools, boards, cutters, plungers, colours, pastes, dusts and much much more to make your work easier.  Although the initial investment may seem a lot, most of these tools will be used over and over again for years to come.  A good idea is to begin by taking a workshop or a class in the basics of Sugarcrafting, and a good teacher will teach you how to make the best use of your tools, and to get multiple uses out of your various cutters.
