Lakeland Pastry Blade 5 "Beats My Fancy Equipment Hands Down" Deborah 06 July 2015 Sometimes the simple things are the best. This beats all my expensive electrical equipment hands down for making the best, quickest, easiest, mess free pastry ever. Keeps your hands out of the dough until bringing the dough together, and then I use a fork for minimal contact, so hands and fingernails remain clean and dough free, and the pastry doesn't get over worked or hot from your hands. Perfect pastry every single time, and unlike food processors it is easy peasy to clean, and, did I mention, no mess! Had mine years, and if it ever breaks will buy two just in case you stop making them!
