It took only about 2.5' to 3' for pretzels in the pretzel maker to be cooked. The 1st try, I was slow so I couldn't make 2 pretzels at the same times for the machine! (I used the "Auntie Anne's at-home baking it) to make pretzels. The 2nd try: I prepared them ahead so I could make 2 pretzels at once :) I didn't try to make the dough myself as I can guess it takes too much time! Buying Auntie-Anne's at-home mix is much easier for me. Besides, this mix very often has coupon inside the box : buy 1, get 1 free so it makes 2 boxes for only around $5)
I tried the small pretzel cutter. Small pretzels are more crunchy than the big ones (it took more time each but has more tiny pretzels, so I'll stick on the big one mold- easier :)
I posted some photos for your reference. Hope they help! :)
Update: I've been using this machine more than 8 times & every time, the pretzels came out very nice & I can make them faster now as I've more experience.
My husband said my pretzels looked like the ones at stores! I'm very pleased with the product! :)
Update 2: I've been using this product 15 times. The machine works as a charm! My neighbor was very surprised seeing my pretzels!
The instructions are lacking in some key areas: thickness of dough (about 1/3"), clarity regarding the intent of the spring on the cutters (do NOT press the spring when trying to cut, but only if the pretzel sticks in the mold after lifting the cutter from the board), how to tell when the pretzels are done (when the green light goes off - no timer necessary). I figured out only at the very end of the first batch that a quick dip in the water-soda bath and then straight to the cooking plate makes for much less floppy dough than the recipe in which 45 seconds of soaking was called for.
Clean up was a breeze. And no, the plates are NOT dishwasher safe as advertised in the box. The inside directions clearly indicate otherwise. But the unit cools to touch relatively quickly, the plates pop out and clean easily with soapy water. No scrubbing needed. Baked-on residue swishes off.
After my scoffing and minor annoyance with the directions, I was pleasantly surprised to find the quality of the finished product to be excellent. In about three minutes, I had a pair of fresh pretzels better than any I have ever had at a pretzel stand, chewy and soft and perfectly cooked all the way through. I blinked and three had disappeared into the maw of my teenager, who orders that I am not to betray the secret of their existence to his friends. I have to reluctantly admit that the pretzels were worth the time and effort.
Nov. 20, 2013 Update...tried the recipe again this morning. I made the dough, divided it into 6 portions and rolled each one into a 20 inch rope. Took the ropes and dipped them in soda water. Brushed the pretzel mold with butter, laid the ropes in the mold twisting the center, closed the cooker and baked them for 3 minutes. Took them out, brushed them with butter again and rolled them in pretzel salt. I enjoyed one just now! They taste a lot like Auntie Anne's pretzels from the mall. (from what I remember from my "Gluten Eating" days) I'm in pretzel Heaven!

Fun thing to do with teens. They love making and kneading the dough. While it rises, they can do something else. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Amazon Customer

Nothing special here. It makes what you might consider pretzels, but not in my book. They have a rather odd texture and are a bit on the soggy side. Read morePublished on July 3, 2014 by Leonard Breunig
