To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I recommend this dough mold! It is strong enough to withstand the pressure you will exert to seal the ends. The plastic ones are not that strong and you will also find that you can't clean them properly either. This one you can put into the dishwasher without worrying. This is a good buy!
On my first try at making dumplings, one of the welds for one of the handles broke off. On the second try, the other weld snapped and now there's no handle to press down on to crimp the dumplings. Unfortunately, the metal frame is also thin metal, so it's very uncomfortable to push down down your hands.
This is one of those cases where the design is good, the product works, but the quality is low and it will break fast.
Spend a few extra bucks and buy a more robust one.
I have been making pierogis way back to the early 1960's and to date I have not found anything that made them easy to make except this time when I saw this new stainless steel mould on Amazon and ordered it. I have made pierogis 4 times since I received my order and I am thrilled to say that I am more than pleased with it. It makes the perfect pierogi every time without any problems of sticking to the mould. It also cuts the circle beautifully as indicated in the picture and you can fill them with any filling with no problems. Believe me when I say that I have tried other products that make pierogis and always had problems with my dough sticking to the product and also not able to fill them fully without problems. I would recommend this product to anyone.
I make perogies on a regular basis, and have for many years. Hoped that this would 'hurry' the process a bit, but, for me, it ended up being more frustrating to use. The perogie maker is big, much larger then I make my perogies, which was another bit of a frustration for me. All in all, for some people, I'm sure it could work for someone else.
I bought this mould to make hand-held pies...as of yet, I have not used this mould... I am very happy to have strong, stainless steel, dishwasher safe product, well made and it’s good value for the money... I finally got a chance to use it and it works perfect and easy...they make my pierogi look great... Thank you for a wonderful, well priced product
This product states it is stainless steel, but I find it hard to believe. Very light and weak. When using it to make ravioli, the handles bent and did not pinch the dough together. While it technically works, I would not recommend this product and would look for one of a similar design but with better construction.
If I could do 0 stars I would. This thing is a piece of junk and it’s in the trash where it belongs. It squishes the dough out the middle of the contraption (the hinged part) and destroys whatever you are trying to create. Do not buy it.
