Decided to give this press a try and I am so glad I did. It arrived quickly. I made my first pies with it and it was so easy to use. I love that it is stainless and I think it will last a long time. The price was ok for stainless and I was so pleased I ordered a smaller size too so I have more options. I would definitely recommend these to others.
After struggling with making pierogi's over the years, these handy presses suddenly appeared on the market. We recently made a hundred pierogi's using this gadget and found it streamlined our efforts. We use a sour cream type dough that is very sticky and found we had to give the press a shot of cooking spray after each 5th pierogi. We also found it helped to use a pastry brush to moisten the circumference of one side of the edge with water to make sure the sealed edge remained sealed after pinching shut. Instead of using the opened mold to cut the dough, we made a circular cutter out of a juice can and cut the dough circle 1/4 in larger in diameter because when overfilling the pocket, the dough "sucked in" and pulled in the dough so there wasn't enough to securely seal it for boiling. We liked this so much we bought extras for our friends and children.
Everything has come to an end, everything looks very cool! It remains to use in practice! With this, I think, there should be no problems. I ordered two sizes at once. This seller at the time of choice the price was the most profitable. I have no complaints! A little worried, what will be the filling of fillings in products. I thought it would be not enough to fit the stuffing. But everything is fine, I think the sizes seem optimal! Photo with size attached
Love this product. It is the S 3in size and makes perfect perogies. If you are looking to make empanadas, you should get the 4 or 5 in size at minimum. It takes a few perogies to get used to how much filling to add but then works fantastic. So glad to have purchased this.
Good. pretty uneven, files will finish.
