More useful than anticipated”
I'd seen this for a couple of years and always decided against buying it because it isn't exactly difficult to cut out pastry circles to make mini morsels with my existing tins and who needs another gadget. This year I bought it on a whim and am so pleased that I did. It is super quick and makes the neatest pastry cases which cook wonderfully. It is great for turning out impressive looking batches of sweet or savoury morsels for gatherings. I needed a couple of experiments to get the size of pastry ball right, smaller than you think, since my first bases were too thick, but now it's easy.

Mini morsel set”
The first time I used this, I rolled tiny balls of pastry, and pushed them in. The bases I found were too thick. I have just made a second batch using ready rolled pastry and a small round pastry cutter. Didn't bother to pre-bake, and filled them with smoked salmon, 2 eggs beaten and 125ml of milk, plus seasoning. Cooked for 20 minutes at 200c. Perfect. So much easier, and taste wonderful.

mini morsel set”
I absoloutely love this set, all my friends were impressed with my mini quiches. I found the wooden tool for shaping the pastry worked better if i dipped it in flour before shaping the pastry bases. Love it !!

marvellous mini morsel tins!”
Just to say I am extremely pleased with the 2 mini morsel tins I purchased. They are really heavy weight tins & the non-stick really works! The only down side of such high quality is that they take ages to cool down which makes making large batches of courgette muffins very time consuming as I have to wait ages before I can remove them. I do cooking for a local charity store & could do with another couple of tins!!

For a family Christmas party.”
After using one of these trays myself, a Dutch friend also saw this in my brochure & thought it just right for her Christmas family parties but expensive for her. I bought one for her birthday & sent it to her. She has been delighted using it for small treats for her grandchildren. Just the right size for little mouths.

Use a scone cutter + the dibber”
by Mrs Hedley
For those who have difficulty getting same thickness on sides and base, just use a scone cutter, then push the pastry into tin with fingers and wooden dibber.

I was a little dubious in getting this, but really glad I did, especially with the festive season fast approaching! The size is also great for doing little cakes in for little mouths!

mini morsel set”
Bought this to make small bites for a party - was impressed! However, it was thanks to buyers who left a review that I was able to work it out easily and make up a couple of cheesy recipes. Add some instructions and some interesting new recipes please then I'll give you 5 stars.

What a find....saves oodles of time”
by Mrs britton
I bought this as part of the buy one get one half price deal. I have made masses of mini quiches; blind baking particularly if using shortcrust pastry. It does take a bit of practice to get an even pastry cake (not too thick a base). It is a great way of using up odds and ends in the fridge and livening up lunch boxes. Tip: make them at night or they will be 'stolen' while still cooling on a rack! Easy to clean & very strong, so am expecting many years of good use. Can't wait to try the fillings suggested by other reviewers.

This review is for an older version of this product
I was looking forward to using this set, but I was rather disappointed. I found the morsel rather difficult to use and producing rather uneven cases with thick bottoms and very thin sides, so I ended up patting the pastry in place with my fingers instead. I think the morsel would work better if it were a truncated cone. I also found the tin difficult to clean if (as it often happened to me as filling the cases is a rather fiddly job) some of the filling spills and burns in the ridge around the holes. I ended up taking the set back to the shop after a few attempts...

A note from the team: Thanks for taking the time to write your review. I'm sorry to hear that you'd been disappointed with the mini morsel set. I'm glad the store was able to help.
I've had this a few weeks and used it today for the first time. I was rushed and still had great results. You can make about 3 batches with ingredients for one quiche. Can't wait to try out different recepies. It looked a bit messy at first but once cooked came out of the tray fine and looked cute. TOP TIP dip the dabber in flour to prevent pastry sticking, push hard and wiggle.

mini morsel tin”
by Mrs Harper
I like some other reviewers am yet to marvel at this tin, I continue to find it very tricky to mould the pastry properly ending up with uneven cases, which are equally tricky to get out. Not sure that I would recommend this tin

WOULDN'T BE WITHOUT THESE!”
Although I already have the 'wooden former' and several Lakeland mini tart tins, some are still in store from a house move, so in November I treated myself to another 2 sets (as they were on an offer!) This resulted in hundreds of mini mince pies and savoury tarts over the holiday season and no doubt will produce many more for our future gatherings to celebrate the house refurb over the coming months - so easy to get great results at a fraction of supermarket prices- wouldn't be without these!

Love this tin. I have used it to make mini Yorkshire puddings and mini cakes. I think I actually prefer it to using a regular size cake tin.

WOW takes the effort out of making party food, no rolling and re-rolling pastry trimmings. I bought a pack of shortcrust, divided it into about 35 pieces and pushed them into the holes, it's obvious which end to use, dipping in flour between each, I did try getting them tidy around the top but found it best to let them protrude, the bit sticking up is handy to lift them out by! The thickness of the tin ensures the pastry cooks perfectly, no soggy bottom!!! I got this 3 days ago, it was buy one get one half price, I don't need 2 but my step daughter wants one so I'll have to buy full price!

I don't have the knack!”
by Shirley Wells
The tray is beautifully heavy and non-stick, and the dough-pusher is well-made, but neither my husband or I could get the sides of the pastry to stay in the holes when we pulled out the pusher. We had to peel it off the pusher and mould it by hand back into the tin. If you pushed gently the pastry didn't rise up the sides enough, so the bottom of the case was too thick and the sides too thin and tore. If you pushed it in firmly it created a vacuum between the pusher and the pastry so the sides still tore out when removing the pusher. Was it because we were using a butter pastry?

A note from the team: Thanks for your review. For best results, use plenty of flour on both the dough ball and the wooden pusher. We'll be in touch to help.
I bought this to make mini mince pies and have been very happy with my purchase. Have also used it to make mini canapés and fritatas.
