“Nice, efficient cookie press”
By K Chan (Seattle, WA)
I have used it four times by now. it is really easy to use and make nice cookies.
Note that some pattern are more easy to press out than the other.

“Recipe Adjustment”
By Skip L. (Colorado)
Simplicity and ease of use first time out of the gate. Most importantly, it produces GOOD RESULTS without hassle. Unlike earlier presses I have used (the old screw feed used as a kid, and a later electric feed thing with a long threaded stem down the tube which was a nightmare to use), this press proved to be very user friendly. The one-click = one-cookie trigger feed produces consistent cookies. Sweet.

I did notice that it is a little smaller than the old screw gun, and the cookies are smaller. My first batch looked miniature in comparison to the old ones, but they came out great. Averaged just under 2″ across per cookie. With the smaller size cookie, I found the included recipes to be way off on yield and cooking time. The included recipe indicated it would yield 48 cookies, with a baking time of 10-12 min at 375 degrees. My results, with their recipe, yielded 96 cookies (double their stated amount), and I found that they would burn if baked more than 7 minutes at 375 (the recipe lists 10-12 minutes which is charcoal city). And yes, my oven is calibrated. I believe this is partially due to the smaller size cookie the press clicks out.

Keeping in mind to expect a lot of smaller cookies, baking them for about half the stated time, the results are excellent. Make sure the dough is of the right consistency. If it is too thick, requiring a strongman grip to squeeze the trigger, you’ll probabbly blow the press apart.

“Hutzler Cookie Press”
By F. L. Pierce (Southeast PA)
This is an excellent little “machine”! I had an older, hand-turned cookie press that was really wreaking havoc on my arthritis – this one is a great replacement. I was worried that the cookies would not be small and thin like the ones my old press made, but I was pleasantly surprised – these cookies were perfect!

“Best cookie press ever!”
By Eileen Walker (Columbia, MD USA)
I have been making “gun” cookies for fify-five years and have used five or six different types of cookie press and this one is the best one I have ever used. Just mix up the dough (my favorite is the spritz), put it in the gun, click the handle a couple of times and start pressing and nineteen out of twenty cookies come out perfectly. I make them every Christmas and have done so since I was a teenager and baked them by the hundreds and sold them to my brother’s office mates and so have had a lot of experience with cookie presses. This one is truly the best ever.
