Met my expectations by 150%!

I read reviews and did my research before purchasing this cookie press. All I wanted was a good press to make cheese straws. I knew that a metal press was the key. (The first press I ever purchased, with S&H green stamps, was a metal press and lasted for 25 years) After the Mirro press broke mid way during Christmas baking, I purchased a plastic press. Well, needless to say, it broke and so did the next four plastic presses. This year I was bound and determined to buy a quality press, knowing that it would cost a bit more. I found what I needed in the Marcato press.
1. Very easy and painless to use. This press does not aggravate the carpal tunnel in my wrists.
2. Efficient. The cheese straw dough came out of the press like water through a seive. I could not believe how easy and fast I made a batch.
3. Cost-Yes, it cost a bit more but it is a quality product. Well worth the additional $20.00 I spent.
I am extremely pleased with this press and highly recommend it. Right tool for the right job!
