Thanks to this Ateco 1661 decorating tip cleaning brush, cleaning icing and piping gel out of small and large pastry tubes has never been easier!

Cleaning piping tips can be difficult but not with this wonderful tool. It makes life so much easier if you are a cupcake bakery who is constantly using Tips.

Andrea on 05/04/2022

If you are a big fan of using thicker icing recipes, like buttercream, you have to own one of these. Running your tips through the dishwasher can only do so much.

Beau R. from Heroncrest on 02/09/2022

It does what my finger can't so which is get into the small opening of the tips to ensure they are cleaned at a fast pace.

Lawanda K. from Baked By The Pound on 01/29/2021

Overall, the brush is good. Especially if the design is what you're looking for. One thing I don't like is that the metal extends past the brush, so it's ineffective to clean the bottom of anything. Instead, the metal will just scratch the object being cleaned. However, this is common with most brushes. I bought this one because I believed it was the opposite. I still recommend it

Travis M. on 12/07/2020

This is honestly bigger than I thought (the end doesn't taper as much as I would expect). It cleans large tips well, but doesn't reach into smaller ones.

George I. on 05/20/2020

We have several Ateco tools in our collection and they work beautifully. I can't imagine cleaning messy piping tips without this handy tool. It really cuts down on cleanup time!

Dwight H. on 03/29/2020

I never knew about these cleaning brushes until recently. They are just the perfect size for cleaning out your smaller decorating tips! No more gunk inside!

Mary B. from Confectionary Imaging, LLC on 03/12/2020

The piping tip cleaning brush I had been using for years recently broke. I wasn't sure where to even find a replacement. This brush was larger than the one I had been using and I like it better. Fits nicely inside the tips and I am sure that it is getting all of the icing out when I wash them. It is also made more sturdy than my old one, and I can tell it will last for years.

Sandy D. on 11/17/2019

I've had different brands of tip brushes and I think Ateco is the best. Other brands come off weak and easily to break, while this Ateco brand brush is large (for a tip brush), and strong. Very durable.

Shana E. from Just Velvet on 07/08/2019

Crazy what a difference this little brush makes during cleanup - by the time my project was complete I wanted cleanup to go as quickly as possible. Good product-Good price = happy customer.

Bernadine J. on 05/09/2019

Love love love!!! Great to wash my tips with. I ordered a few lol i just love them and dont like not knowing where it is if i loose one. Cant live without

Margaret C. from Cake Me Away on 03/27/2019

It looks flimsy, but it could clean any narrow tube short of a sippy straw! It's wide enough to clean basting tubes (droppers?) and the other end is narrow enough to clean those necks of funnels. Very convenient in the kitchen!

Timur from Mr. Pepe on 03/19/2019

I thought because it was so inexpensive that it'd just be some bulk item tossed in with my order. But it arrived perfectly in its brand packaging and shipping was super fast! At first I thought the bristles were a little too stiff (as my old one was much softer) but it's actually perfect for cleaning out thicker items like pate a choux dough. Great price and great product. Order a few, you won't regret it!

Korri F. on 03/10/2019

This cleaning brush works excellently, it preforms its purpose excellently with no issue. It is easy to clean. We would order this product again in the future.

Ashley G. from The Hop Ice Cream Cafe on 01/23/2019

Not as sturdy as I had wished for. However, these brushes do the job. They are great for cleaning soda nozzles, beverage recovery clean kit.

Christopher B. from Boomers! Fountain Valley on 01/08/2019

Very sturdy and durable brush. Makes cleaning bottles and tips very easy. It holds up very well. Easy yo use and shios fast ina few days

Kimberlee M. from KRN Enterprise, LLC on 12/21/2018

Anyone who uses the larger pastry tips should have this 2-sided cleaning brush. This has been a huge time saver for me after my buttercream cake decorating classes.

Karen A. from Sweet Gourmet Cafe on 10/05/2018

This brush is a must for cleaning icing tips. Tips must be washed by hand, and this brush is the perfect size to reach all the books and crannies.

Stacey S. on 09/21/2018

YES! Finally a cleaning brush thin enough to clean #2 tips! I have used this a dozen times and it is still great! I would advise purchasing more than 1 as they are tiny and I have lost 1 before

Nannie from Emmy Cakes on 09/05/2018

This makes my life so much easier, I highly suggest getting one of these to keep your tips clean, they work great for the small hard to reach spaces!
