I love this cookie press! I'm a newbie when it comes to cookie presses, so I watched several videos to get the hang of it before I made cookies. I found a spritz cookie recipe online that worked great. The press is well-made, easy to use, and easy to clean. The resulting cookies are BEAUTIFUL! It's super fun to make cookies with this press. UPDATED to say this press is great for cheese straws, too. It comes with a star die, which works perfectly for cheese straws. I've also started using the lever attachment for extra leverage when needed. I find it useful when making large spritz cookies. Be sure to put your cookie sheets in the freezer before pressing cookies so they'll stick better to the sheet. Still loving this cookie press.
