OK product - significant number of defects
on December 18, 2001
I have been using PC biscuits for several years and have gone through many batches of them. One thing I have noticed is that the number of defective biscuits per container has risen markedly as I purchase newer batches of them. The current batch I have been using has shown about 30% of the biscuits to be defective (by defective, I mean that the biscuit compression is inconsistent, and that many of the biscuits are too wide for the slots cut by plate joiner.)
I store all biscuits in double sealed, airtight containers in a bone dry basement, and am religious about protecting the things.
I simply may have gotten a number of bad batches of biscuits from the several supppliers from which I have purchased them, but I continue to find that a large portion of the units are unusable. While those which do fit in the slots function fine, I'll probably end up buying a batch of the Swiss "L" brand biscuits next. Though they cost twice as much, they are reputed to be extremely consistent, and the cost of the PC throwaway biscuits makes the cost per usable unit of the L brand biscuits extremely competitive.
Be aware, you may have to pick through your batch of biscuits just as you have to pick through stacks of lumber at the local yard.
