So what do customers think of this set?

The Good

Customers loved the versatility of being able to swap nozzles between the bottles.

Another good feature is that you can stand the bottles up between use which is less messy than using pastry bags.

A lot of people bought this set to be able to use with their kids, and the comments seem to show that the kids found them easy and fun to use.

The Not So Good

Some people found that the bottle cracked easily.  They also said that the bottles were to small to hold enough icing.

Another improvement that could be made is some sort of storage for all of the bits and pieces.

One complaint was that the openings were too small on the top making the bottles hard to fill, and also hard to clean.

Tips From Customers

To fill the bottles easily, put the icing in a ziplock bag, cut off one of the corners and squessze into the bottle.

Pros

One customer compared this product favorably to some more popular brands.  She said that it was far easier to clean, and much easier to use, even with one hand leaving the other hand free.

The results are professional looking cookies, and the dough comes out smoothly and evenly.

Cons 

One customer said that despite making fantastic cookies, it did not produce great results when used for frosting.

Some people felt that the cookies were too small (1.5″-2″).

A couple of other people found that the plastic ring was a bit flimsy and either popped off or broke.

Tips from Customers

The instructions say that you should chill the cookie sheets and not grease them, and this was agreed upon by customers!

Remember that the discs are not suitable for use in the dishwasher.

Ensure that your cookie dough is not too thick, or it will be very hard to squeeze the trigger, and the results wont be good.
