Kuhn Rikon Frosting Deco Pen
Battery-powered decorating! Choose between two speeds for a controlled flow of icing. There’s nothing to push down – it’s just like a pen, so you only need one hand to ice.
Quick, clean and easy to fill, the icing is simply sucked up into the chamber. It comes with three chambers, so you can swap over when using different icings, a mixing attachment to combine different colours for a marbling effect, and six nozzles which allow you to create shell borders, rosettes, stars, leaves or a basketweave pattern, there’s even one for filling the centre of cupcakes! A clever bit of kit in any baker’s armoury.

Rubbish!” by Sharon
I bought this as I love cake decorating and making cupcakes, but this product is just awful, once you have filled the tube with icing, which in itself is a very messy way of doing things, you cannot ice 12 cupcakes in one go, so have to then go through the whole messy process to finish off the remaining cakes. If you use a coloured icing or a chocolate filling the colour stains the tubes even when put on a hot wash in the dishwasher. Very expensive for such a cheap product don't waste your money stick to disposable icing bags. I wish I had returned the product as I won't be using it again.
A note from the team: I'm sorry to learn that you'd been disappointed with the performance of the decorating pen. I'll be in touch shortly.
Disappointing” by Lynne
I was given this pen as a gift and just haven't been able to get on with it. I agree with most of the comments in the other negative reviews: I find it no less wasteful than an ordinary piping bag, and not much less messy. The "slow" speed seems fast to me, and the nozzles are clumsy. Normally I'd just use water-based icing (icing sugar, water and a tiny bit of butter) but the instructions seemed to suggest that this type wasn't suitable for the pen. I wasn't able to go out and buy ready-made icing before my first attempt with it so I made my own (using one of the recipes in the instruction booklet) and had great difficulty getting it sufficiently smooth that it wouldn't jam the nozzle and then suddenly spurt out in a big blob. Not having a shop-bought tub meant that I had to manually spoon the icing into the cartridge; I agree that the necessary equipment should be provided as part of the kit, but in fact I didn't find the spooning too bad.
I can see how it could be helpful for someone who has difficulty squeezing an icing bag but personally I'd much rather have the level of control that you get with a simple icing bag and metal nozzles.
A note from the team: Thanks for your review. I'm sorry to hear that you'd been disappointed with the decorating pen. I'll be in touch shortly.
Absolutely Fantastic!” by Hilary
This is an absolutely fantastic invention. I have trouble keep a steady hand when using a traditional icing bag which results in unsightly resutls! Thankfully, that is not a problem with this product. It is so easy to use and comes with a good variety of tips. I also appreciate the fact that it can be used with ready made icing. This is a real time saver when I don't have time to make icing from scratch. However, there are two things that I think could be improved. Firstly, it would be nice if the product came with a tub for icing, as it requires you to go out and buy one before it can be used. Secondly, it's a bit of a hassle to clean. The icing really seems to get everywhere, although this doesn't appear to affect the product's ability to do the job. All in all, I would recommend this to everyone and anyone.
