I was put off buying this by some of the reviews left. However my sister bought one and had no problem so (four months later) I took the plunge. No problem at all..golden shortbread and it came out of the mould cleanly and with the pattern well defined. I used a hand mixer and when the 'breadcrumbs' appeared I put half of them into the mould and pressed them down firmly with the heel of my hand, then the other half and did the same. Doing half at a time means you get more pressure on the 'picture'. I ran a knife round the edge as soon as it left the oven, then left it to cool completely.
