Customer questions about this product

What do the different pastry tube numbers mean?
For Ateco plain, open star, closed star, and French star pastry tubes, #0 - #9 indicates the size of each tip in comparison to the tube type. For example, plain #0 is the smallest plain tip available and plain #9 is the largest. Ateco's product numbers also assist with identifying tip types - plain: 800 – 809; open star: 820 – 829; closed star: 840 – 849; French star: 860 – 869.

Overall User Rating: Ateco 803 5/16" Plain #3 Pastry Tube (August Thomsen) ( 4.9 stars from 16 reviews )

    We have been adding to our tip collection and we love this tip. It is a good quality and the size works well for our needs. Great for our needs.

    from Bakeshop LLC Posted on

    These things will last you forever, as long as you don't send them to your dishwasher. Great quality, but easy to lose. At only a dollar a pop, maybe you should just buy a back up!

    from Blushing Berry Posted on

    This plain pastry tube is great for filling cream puffs as well as piping pearl borders on cakes and clean swirls on cupcakes. Ateco makes great pastry tubes and this is no exception. I like that they don't rust as easily as other brand pastry tubes, and the shape of these tubes fit over couplers perfectly.

    Works great - simple of course. This size is too large for small text on cakes however - could be good size for larger text on a full sheet cake

    from Mountain Oven, LLC Posted on

    This is a very economical tip and will also fit on other brands pastry bags as well. You can just stick them through the end of the pastry bag without needing the connectors

    from Gluten Free Kids Posted on

    I use this primarily to ice my cupcakes, and it does the trick. It's a standard round tip, so design options are there, but limited. If that's what you need, get it

    from Just Velvet Posted on

    buying this for the second time, to give one to my mother and I'll probably be buying ANOTHER for my mother-in-law. because the price is perfect! I've seen them much higher at other places. I use these to make polka dots with frosting (maybe not their intended use, but it does the job)

    These round piping tips or tubes as Ateco likes to call them are great to pipe buttercream on cupcakes. You'll need a large coupler for these.

    ateco are the best tips out there and this site is the best in the pricing of these tips we got hundreds of these and they last a long time if you dont crush them in the sink..

    from jeanne's bakeshop Posted on

    Great to use when filling macarons or any other sandwich cookie I would say. Great value for the price and the fact that these sizes are not available at places like craft shops.

    Best price online for these Ateco pipping tips. We've paid more per tip at other stores, but not here. Very strong metal construction (as in it's really hard to bend these).

    Lemon Zinger Cupcakes

    Very affordable Pastry tube made by Ateco. Easy to clean and fits standard pastry bags. Great for detail designs and drawing on cakes and cupcakes.

    from Countryside Cakes Posted on

    This pastry tube is a nice size for decorative work on cakes, making dots to hold decorations, and making small cake borders. It's a little too small to frost a cupcake.

    I love this tip for big icing swirls with no pattern. It works well with icing that has "chunks" in it, like cookies and cream.

    This is a great pastry tube! It is a good size for piping filling into small pastries. These tubes are multi-purposeful and very tough, I highly recommend them.

    Filling a Small Tartlet With Almond Filling

    A good size for making characters, fruit, or larger beading on borders. I often use this one for filling cupcakes and pastry shells. The smooth edge doesn't snag on the cake.
