VERY hard to remove stuff from letters Dec 21, 2011
By Megan, a reader
There are negative reviews out there for similar products made by other manufacturers, but I knew what I wanted and what I was getting - these are very small letters intended for fondant. I was hoping to use them for making homemade crackers. The product is as specified: small letters that are well made. The reason for the lower rated review is that I found it virtually impossible to remove anything from the letters. I tried them with frozen rolled dough of various kinds - crackers, cookies, etc. - and the only letters that were salvageable were ones with no holes like F, S, and K. Forget about A, R, P, etc. I used a toothpick to poke the dough out, leaving toothpick holes in the letter - the holes filled in when they baked, but if you were using fondant or something that did not get baked, I imagine you'd have little pin pricks in your letters. If you're using dough and not fondant, it needs to be frozen rock hard as well - the least bit of give and the dough was impossible to get out without mangling the letter. It was very frustrating and time consuming. Professional pastry chefs or bakers may know some secret that I would love if you would share with me, because they are very cute but I don't know if I have the patience to use them again. I don't know what the solution might be on the part of the manufacturer - maybe small pushers in the same shapes?
They were also quite difficult to clean for the same reasons. I used a baby bottle brush to get in the crevices, which worked pretty well. Since I didn't use them for fondant, I can't say how well they work for their intended product, which is why I erred on the side of 3 stars rather than less.

Does the job but rusts after first wash Oct 04, 2012
By Amazon Customer
These letters were exactly what I was looking for but I'm very disappointed that after the first wash the rusted. And it's not just a little rust, they're basically unusable now because the rust transfers to the fondant when trying to use them now.
I have the stainless steel rings and they are awesome and do not rust. I wish these were made of the same material.
Also, for clarification, when I washed them I didn't leave them lingering in the water, I quickly scrubbed them, set them on a towel then hand dried them and they still rusted.

Ehh cute Jan 20, 2012
Their cute and good for imprinting cookies and doing fondant work and clay etc but not good for cookie dough. Their too thin and it didn't work with sugar cookies.

OK May 22, 2013
By Amy Renee
I like the concept but didn't realize how tiny the letters were. Wanted to use them to cut words out of fondant but they are so skinny the fondant tears.

Rusted Nov 15, 2012
They rusted the first time I washed and air dried them. Didn't think I needed to dry them off eight after.
