Tampa, Florida - Try It Team Member Yvonne Bradley-Reid was excited to try out the Oster 20 Piece Cookie Press and Decorating Set. Her daughter Carolyn loves cookies and in just a few minutes, they had the dough ready.

The cookie Press worked great for the first few creations, then it suddenly stopped working.
After trying a few more times, Yvonne took the dough out of the cannister and tried to figure out what was wrong. It turns out that the metal teeth that squeeze the cookie dough out of the cannister had crumpled under the pressure, rendering this product unusable.
Here is what Yvonne had to say:
The product was very easy to use and assemble, however after changing out the design shield, the casing jammed. It was obvious when looking through the clear neck of the canister that the teeth were causing noticeable grooves into the plastic chamber. We were unable to get it started again.
The cookie dough came out in small amounts, making smaller cookies than I would prefer, but it would have been great for an event where many cookies of a smaller size were needed.
Overall it was given a "thumbs down," because it broke mid-way through use.
