I am including my reply here:
Something in your previous e-mail (included) has been bothering me since I read it and I finally realized what it is. I feel compelled to bring this up in the interest of fair business practice; you stated that "the green aluminum extruders are designed to be light-weight, portable and intended for “soft” and “malleable” modeling mediums only". However, on the box this came in (along with all the others I've seen) it states that this product can be used with "all types of clay". Nowhere does it mention that using firmer clay will cause the tool to break down and become useless in a fairly short amount of time. Nowhere does it mention that trying to use any of the included dies will create an issue either.
I've heard from other people that when they too have a problem with any of your equipment Makins is not willing to back up their products. Many are willing to shrug it off and just go buy another or something else. I, however, feel that if nothing is said, nothing is done. And though I do not expect your company to do anything to make this issue right, I do feel it necessary to let you know of my displeasure and my forward intention not to purchase anything with the Makins brand name in the future.
I am also passing on my experience to my fellow clayers on Facebook and other media so they will not waste their money on a product that will, inevitably, cause them to spend money unnecessarily.
Pro- basically gets the job done better than if you were to do it without a tool.
Cons- cranking it can be no better described than.... imagine driving a school bus with no power steering. If you have to do many strips, you may want to set up a relay team, or schedule your carpel tunnel surgery soon thereafter.
Cannot be thoroughly cleaned. In fact, you really can only safely clean the disks and cap. If you get water in the shaft, it'll be trapped there, indefinitely. Water= not conducive to sugar work.
Leaves a black residue on the product being pushed through it. This black oily substance seems to regenerate itself. You would think after 30 or so uses, it would start to dissipate. You would be wrong. Because you aren't completely sure what it is, you just end up throwing away alot of fondant.
Because you are unable to properly clean the instrument, fondant bits harden inside. This eventually causes a complete breakdown. For me, it was while I was making a cake that looked like spaghetti and meatballs. I was cranking out those "noodles" and the entire plunger came apart. I've never witnessed metal parts collapse like an eggshell before. It was super inconvenient, yet fascinating..
I'll wrap up with this...I never pushed clay through this extruder, but I can't imagine it being any easier than soft fondant. I'm a pretty positive person, so I shall offer the silver lining. I did get about 40 mostly decent uses over 10 months time. I found it to be priced ok for the use I got from it. Ummm....It's shade of green color is pleasant to look at. That's about it. I hope to have better luck with a different brand.
I'm not sure, but I'm assuming that the above would all be true for clay as well - just be sure not to use the same extruder for clay AND cake.
