If size matters”
If you are particular about the size of your crumpets these rings will make a crumpet 7.8 cm in dia. The ring measures 8.5 cm outside diameter over the rolled edge and 7.8 cm inside diameter. The traditional size for a crumpet is 3-1/2 inches diameter. (8.9 cm) They are a very well made, high quality product, but a little under size in my opinion.

The crumpet recipes I've read online all suggest that crumpet rings need washing and greasing between batches. I greased my new Lakeland rings with ordinary baking margarine before first using, but they came away so cleanly that I decided to skip washing them before the second batch, and realised after that, that they didn't even need regreasing, so I just carried on using them. They worked perfectly and no dough became stuck at any time. The crumpets were totally moreish. The only drawback to this product is that you end up eating a lot more crumpets than you would if you'd bought them!

So far so good!”
Brilliant invention, no problems with dough sticking to sides just used olive spread to prevent this. However I need to tweak my cooking of the included recipe - practice will make perfect, off to a good start though, thanks!

Delicious and easy to make”

Definitely nicer than shop-bought and very easy to make. The crumpets do tend to stick to the rings with normal oil but with Cake Release they come out easily and looking perfect every time. Thanks for the Cake Release tip Lakeland!

These are so good! Great quality and such fun to use on a leisurely morning. (It's not a quick process so not exactly something you would be using before you dash out the door in the morning for work!) But, when you do have time to spend in the kitchen, it's great. They taste so much better than shop bought ones and now, when I do have time, I make a big batch and pop them into the freezer when cool. Good sturdy product and very happy that we bought them. Have not bought shop crumpets since. :)
