Has anyone ever used the cake tips that say KOREA on them? I bought 4 of them the other day on the internet. I was assuming they would be Wilton tips but they turned out to be the KOREA tips. It doesn't really matter to me as long as it's the right tip, except that all 4 of them rusted! I have never had a cake tip rust before! Just wondered if anyone else has had a similar experience.

Uuummmmm those probably ARE Wilton tips. I have many of them icon_smile.gif As I remember some of them will rust quicker than others.
Don't you just love it when sellers don't fully describe their items? icon_sad.gif

Those tips are made in Korea. American manufacturing standards require all imported products to show the country of origin. I have had some tips rust, but they weren't Wilton - they were generic brand from country kitchen. I'm placing a Wilton order for replacement tips, since I've never had wilton ones rust. BTW - it has to do with the metal alloy ratio - different alloys will rust faster, even stainless steel.

Thanks Kakeladi and Sugarnspice!

Sugarnspice - The tips that I bought were from CK as well.
