I just purchased this set from T J Maxx for $14.99 and I cannot wait to use it- the bummer is I just made some cookies and I could have used this set because they looked horrible! I hope this will improve the look of my cookies! Anyway, if you don't have a T J Maxx near you here is a link for the company: http://www.kuhnrikon.com/products/tools/tools.php3?id=348
I'm so used to using bags, that I'm not sure I'd know what to do with a bottle. Although, I sometimes use bottles for chocolate.
My cookies are always messy and rushed- that is why I haven't posted any.ahahahhahahaha I use bags but the end results are not always favorable.
They are great!!! Use them to decorate all my cookies!!
I buy the mold painter bottles, much cheaper! I get them from both f ondantsource.com and countrykitchensa.com. I have a hard time controlling bags but the bottles seem to make my hands more tired from the squeezing... but the cookies look better
Sur la Table sells the bottles by themselves and the kit. I don't think I could use the accordion style bottles but I have several of the other ones and love, love, love them! I started out using bags and my hands got tired way too fast and the flooding consistency flooded everywhere whenever I set them down. I also don't have to worry about walking away for a bit because I just put the lid on instead of wrapping a damp paper towel around the tip and coming back to a wet mess of icing because the icing in the bag suck up the water in the paper towel. If you're bottle is getting empty and you need to stop for a bit, you just snap the lid on and toss the bottle upside down in a glass to keep the icing near the tip.
Well worth the money.
Sounds like I should give it a try!
They sure are cheaper! I was looking for a bottle that I could interchange the tips and it looks like theirs does! I had brought the Wilton bottles that come in the big round plastic container but you cannot interchange tips. Thanks. I will have to check on this- the more the merrier.
I use the KR bottles tops with Wilton bottles. Wilton bottles are softer plastic than KR and easier to squeeze. So yes the KR tops can be used on some
I find that the accordion bottles are a lot easier than the reg bottles. You don't have to squeeze and my hands don't get as tired as when I use the squeeze bottles, that is just my experience with using the bottles. Everyone has their own way which is the most comfortable way for them.
