gets the job done but a few issues...
on June 11, 2011
I'm kind of a newbie to reusable pastry bags, so you might want to take my review with a grain of salt, but I wasn't a huge fan of this bag. The great thing about this bag is that it's made in the good ol' USA, which is a major reason why I decided to get this one. However, I'm not sure if that outweighs the issues I've had with it.
1) It's a little smelly when you first take it out, like really plastic-y, although this did go away mostly after using it a handful of times.
2) It's more stiff than the other reusable pastry bags I have. It's harder to twist it at the end and keep a hold on while piping compared to the other bags I have. While I was piping out coffee macarons, the batter would at times come out the end it's not supposed to and onto my hand. But maybe you're okay with a stiff pastry bag.
3) The ring that's embedded into the bag so that you can hang it to dry is really small. I like my other bags that have a bigger loop so I can hang them on the knobs of my kitchen cabinets. But maybe you have really small cabinet knobs to hang it off of.
