    These make testing your cake much easier. no more burning your hand on the rack above the cake your testing, like we all do when trying to use tooth picks!

    Great sturdy tester. The metal is secure and is great for all proteins as well as pastries to test for cookage. I will buy again

    from china star Posted on

    The Ateco cake tester was a little disappointing. I was surprised at the flexibility and give on the rust proof steel point was almost too much and it felt like it was going to break. I am a big fan of this brand but not sure I could say the same thing about the cake tester.

    Such a simple tool but very useful. Much better than using toothpick as more affective especially with a deeper cake. Ateco is such a great and trustworthy brand.

    Great cake tester tool.

    This small tool is really helpful. I used to use toothpick to test, but it will have holes on the cake. This cake tester can barely leave any mark on the cake surface. For sure you are not gonna to test your super smooth cakes.

    I like this Ateco 1445 Cake Tester (August Thomsen). It eliminates the need to purchase toothpicks or dowels. I love the fact that it's very thin and does not leave holes in my cakes. It's a very nice tool to have in the kitchen...

    Love these, we use them not just for baking to test the sweet baked items, but to also check the temperature of fish and meats cooked on the hot line. A must for serious line cooks

    Great replacement for tooth picks when testing muffins, cakes or cupcakes. Much more durable and definitely a product we recommend to anybody owning a bakery.

    from Monika's Organic Bakery Posted on

    I never really used a cake tester, I would use a tooth pick, skewer, or knife but im really happy with this, it works great, and it its so thin, that it doesnt leave a mark!

    from sweetart Posted on

    Great cake tester

    I absolutely love this product! This ateco cake tester works great! The stainless steel stick is inserted to cake if no cake is on stick then cake is done!

    Great Value!!!! Great cake tester. Verybeady to clean and best part about t is reusable.Gets the job done without damaging the cake or cupcakes! Definitely a step up from using a toothpick. Will purchase again.

    You may think that it unnecessary to buy this cake tester but you are wrong! Its easy to use and once you use it, you will regret why you didnt buy before. It has good price as well

    this cake tester is great and very helpful when baking, also i sometimes use it to open soft plastic wrap, or poke holes in things.

    The Atec 1445 Cake Tester exceeded my expections. Great price and so much easier than using a toothpick. I would highly recommend. 5 Stars! Would definitely purchase again.

    Posted on

    This small tool worked exactly as I hoped. I was using toothpicks previously and found myself using too many toothpicks as the dough stuck to the wood. With this inexpensive tool, I just wipe and test again.

    Posted on

    This is such a simple but fantastic tool to have in the kitchen. It works better than a toothpick and is reusable so no more wasting tons of toothpicks every day.

    Posted on

    This is just what you would expect. It works better for testing baked goods than using a toothpick. It seems like it will last awhile.

    from The Bean Tap Posted on

    This is a handy, inexpensive gadget to keep around if you bake a lot. I used to use a toothpick to test cakes, but sometimes it would leave a noticeable hole on the surface. This cake tester is small and leaves no signs the cake was ever poked.

    Posted on

    The thin needle is a better option than using a toothpick, skewer, fork or anything else. It's easy to grip, simple to wash and is rust proof.

    Posted on

    This little cake tester has proven to be wonderful so far. NO MORE trying to find a toothpick and hoping I hit the center of what we're cooking. Seems study enough so far.

    Posted on

    Love the Ateco Cake Tester. Sure a toothpick (or knowing when its done by touch) works just as well, but these are nice to have on hand.

    I will be using this cake tester contantly for my cakes and cupcakes. It is very slim so it does not create a giant whole like most knives, forks, or picks.

    Posted on

    Nice thin but sturdy and a nice little addition to my kitchen tools. I just like it cause when you check a cake it doesn't leave holes like toothpick do

    Posted on

    These are great both for checking cakes but also for checking the doneness of certain foods, like potatoes; it is also a great way to check the internal temperature of meats. They're so cheap you can buy in bulk and even if you lose some it's not that big of a deal.

    Posted on

    this is sturdy and has lasted me such a long time . this is really a great product. Its very easy to keep clean as well

    Posted on

    This is much better than using toothpicks. The length is great and they do not leave large holes after checking the cake. They are cheaper than the other brand i have.

    Posted on

    Love that you can test your cake or pie. With no big holes left behind. As an eye sore. Has a tab to keep your fingers cool to the touch that makes it easy to test your food of choice. Easy to wash with soapy water. Very little footprint with no waste. The price is a giveaway

    from Antoinette Bakery Posted on

    It is the best cake tester......ever. It is easy to get bent (my kids accidentally did while washing the dishes) ....It is inexpensive enough to get another one anytime :-)

    Posted on

    This cake tester actually works very well! its way more cost efficient then buying countless toothpicks over and over. Nice size and reusable. cant beat that!

    Posted on

    Very nifty little gadget for testing cakes. Much longer than an ordinary toothpick so you don't have to worry if you have a particularly thick cake. These are obviously going to be made cheaply for the price but I can't see it breaking unless you abuse it in some kind of way.

    Posted on

    this is a handy tool to have at the kitchen. I use it to make sure my cake, bread or pastry are done. Much better than toothpicks!

    Posted on

    Could not be any more happy with this cake tester tool very sturdy and inexpensive a quality product from WEBstaurantStore perfect for so many baking applications in the kitchen.

    Posted on

    This item is super affordable and definitely a great addition to the kitchen. It's better than a toothpick as it goes deeper into the cake. Easy clean up as well.

    Posted on

    Sure, you could use a toothpick but with these cake testers you can test deeper into the cake and they last much longer. Save money overall with these.

    from Sweet Pea's Cupcakery Cafe Posted on

    I normally use a toothpick but this is even better since it is smaller yet longer at 6 inches. The blue handle is easy to see and easy to grip.

    This Ateco 1445 Cake Tester (August Thomsen) is very thin and flimsy and not worth buying . Just keep using a tooth pick to check your cake.

    from T & C Catering Services Posted on

    I remember these from childhood but I have to admit I began using toothpicks and such to test. I was happy to rediscover these. They work well and don't leave the whole that the toothpicks do.

    Posted on

    Who knew there was such a thing? I stumbled upon this little gem while looking for baking supplies. It works so well, and leaves the most minuscule pin mark in your cakes. Unlike the toothpick that can leave a much bigger hole. I love that its reusable unlike the other option of throwing out toothpicks every time I bake!

    Posted on

    very good product , good for checking cakes when you take them out the oven hot would recomend it to any one that bakes often.

    from laparkan express Posted on

    These items with the August Thomsen are my first choice! This is another example of Web R offering products well below other stores. This cake tester is a great price! Winning!

    Ateco 1445 Cake Tester (August Thomsen) it's used to test if your cake is done if it's done the tester will come out clean from the cake

    from PowerQuee Media Posted on

    This is one of those gadgets that is inexpensive but makes life easier. When first received, I was quite doubtful if the very thin stem would infact be an accurate indicator of the doneness of the cake but it turns out this small tiny wonderful gadget is able to pick up crumbs on underbaked cake and comes out clean on perfectly baked ones. These are a godsend that doesnt make me run around looking for a toothpick. Definitely recommend in spending the spare change for something much useful for the homebaker.

    Posted on

    An under utilized item in many kitchens cake testers are great to have. At less than a dollar buy several and they work great for not just testing cakes but checking inner temperatures of hot items with poking and prodding your piece of fish, meat or anything warm.

    from Otis restaurant Posted on

    i have been using a knife to check my cakes and cookies for the past 13 years...needless to say I needed one of these. Works perfectly and I don't have to ruin a cupcake anymore. I might buy more to keep extras lying around.

    Posted on

    These testers are so helpful. I lose things a lot, so the price is also great. I was able to buy several of them! I'll definitely order more.

    from The Sweetest Things, LLC Posted on

    Love these! I was purchasing testers locally, but found them and wanted to give them a try. Not only are they the same or better quality, they are a third of the price. Cannot go wrong!

    from Everything Iced Cupcakes & More Posted on

    This does exactly what it says it would do. It's great to have around because it is thin enough we're not poking giant holes in your cake toothpicks tend to be a little thicker so I do recommend having the surround

    from Small and Simple confections Posted on

    This is such a simple idea but SO worth it!! It's such an affordable price. This works much better than a fork and much easier to use than a toothpick!

    Posted on

    This cake tester is a great product its dishwasher safe and in the drawer full of tools the little blue handle makes it so much easier to find! I will definitely order a couple more

    from RaynneStarr Posted on

    Not sure why I have never owned one of these......the needle part is super thin, and long, which is wonderful for not making a big whole in a cupcake/cake to check it. Loved the price too :).

    from Yummvees Posted on

    Ateco 1445 Cake Tester (August Thomsen) is a great little cake tester. I really like that is has a larger handle for holding the tester.

    Now I regret that I only ordered one of these. When it's nice you do it twice!! I will most definitely be ordering another one or even two in my next order. I love it!! Goodbye toothpicks!!! Au revoir!!!

    from Tina's recipes Posted on

    Neat little product. Much better than using skewers because it does not make as big of a hole in your baked goods. Also it is more sanitary and stores well in chef coat pocket.

    from Creativa Posted on

    As a team we make special event cakes and Decorating cake contest entries. Ateco put the competition to shame the quality is worth the money. You will not be disappointed.

    from Mercury Posted on

    I really like these, especially for my Jamaican Black cakes, which can be 4" high, and a toothpick will not work for that height. It got a 4 instead of a 5 because this can be too slick and hard to tell if your baked goods are fully cooked especially near the end of baking. I sometimes have to use a skewer.

    Posted on

    No more toothpicks and skewers!!! this is such a great little item i never knew i needed until i got one. Before i'd use toothpicks or skewers which would leave a noticeable hole on the cake, but no more.

    Posted on

    Nice to have a dedicated tool to test the "doneness" of cakes. Used to use skewers.. No more wasting wood skewers now! The only issue is that I wish it had a cover or case to go in with a pocket clip. This thing is almost needle thickness and could be a puncture hazard if just thrown in a pocket.

    from Deliciously Dipped Posted on

    For the price of this, this is the perfect little cake tester. I have been looking to buy some metal stakes for checking my cakes, but this was the perfect item and now i don't need to buy skewers

    Posted on

    Just the right length and thickness to test any cake. Sturdy and durable, cleans up easily. I also use to poke holes in pie crust to prevent it from bubbling up.

    Posted on

    This Ateco Cake Tester is great for not only testing all of my cakes, but I use it for cupcakes too! I have a few of these!

    from Mazey Cakes Posted on

    I've wasted too many wooden skewers before buying this product. It fits conveniently into your sleeve pocket and the handy blue end makes it easy to find again.

    Posted on

    This tool (cake tester) was very inexpensive and works great, better than a toothpick and love the fact that is longer and easy to clean.

    from Jacky's Baked Goods Posted on

    Super inexpensive and gets the job done. These are so much more efficient than simply sticking a knife in the middle or something similar to check if your goods are done. Worth having a few around.

    Posted on

    I felt kind of silly purchasing this since a toothpick or skewer can be used to check a cake for doneness. But I have gotten splinters from running my finger along toothpicks and skewers when I wipe crumbs or batter off to retest. This implement will never give you a splinter, it's long enough to test a deep cake, and I prefer reusing this over throwing out toothpicks and skewers which always seem to tear the plastic liners I use in my trash bins. Garbage is nasty enough to deal with without a leak; with one it's a nightmare.

    Posted on

    Another item we ordered less than a week before Christmas and it arrived in time to test the Christmas Eve banana bread, How is that for fast service? A neat little tool which saves you from leaving fork holes in the top of your bread when you test it.

    Posted on

    This inexpensive little cake tester is an essential tool I'm my bakery for testing my cupcakes and cakes. Occasionally the metal tester pops out of the plastic grip and it takes a moment to stick back together, but for the price it gets the job done.

    from Sugar Buff Posted on

    I love this little tool! I don't use it to test for done was as I use the spring back method, but it's the perfect tool for dislodging any bits that get stuck in piping tips, spreading & removing bubbles from royal icing, and anything else that requires a tiny needle type tool.

    Posted on

    Great product no more toothpick! And I can check the temperature, first time purchase in this site very good and fast shipping good and clean package

    from Luxurylady Posted on

    This is a little metal cake tester. It works great! We've also found many other uses for it, like poking open sealed bottles of hot sauce!

    from ashlexdrei tradings /sweets by chef jhay Posted on

    Great Price. I use the cake taster to clean out my pressure canner holes, by making sure it is not clogged up so the pressure can get through. The hole is very tiny and this wire works perfectly. Will probably purchase a few more to use with my baked goods.

    from jwhitten31 on Youtube Posted on

    This cake tester in awesome when it comes to checking for cake doneness. It is thin and tall enough for the taller baking pans. It's an added bonus that it leaves very small holes when checking a cake compared to toothpicks. So glad I purchased two!

    Posted on

    I am an avid baker and I love this tool. I don't know how I went most of my life without this lol. Much easier and taller tool then using a toothpick. It is very sturdy and I am so happy it is replacing that little annoying box of toothpicks! I'm sure it will last me many years and the price is awesome!

    I decided to get one of these because I had lost my other cake tester. This little thing has become a favorite. I attach it to the side of my vent hood with a magnet and it is always right where I need it. I like the plastic top. My other was all metal and occasionally was left too close to hot things and got hot itself resulting in slight burns. The plastic handle hasn't managed to burn me yet. ;)

    from The Lemon Tree Cottage Bakery Posted on

    Does the job, we use it to test when cakes or cupcakes are done. I do wish the handle was thicker though so it wouldn't fall through our drying racks or get lost in our utensil holders. Maybe even a hole in it would be good for hanging.

    from Ivy Bakery Posted on

    We use these little guys all the time for cake testing and many other uses. The price can not be beat anywhere on the web.

    from ckd restaurants, llc Posted on

    This cake tester is much better than a toothpick. It's considerably longer, making it great for deeper cakes, and the extra length makes a lot more maneuverable as well. I also appreciate its skinniness; it leaves a barely noticeable hole in the cake compared to a toothpick.

    Posted on

    This is a nice tool when teaching newbies how to bake cakes just right. The flared end is easy to hold and makes it pretty easy to find in a busy drawer or tray.

    from Sussman's Bakery Posted on

    Better than a tooth pick or fork and cleans so much better. If you want the job done right then you need the right tools.

    Much better than using toothpick! Now my cake won't have a big hole in the middle! Great product! I am glad I order two of than!

    Posted on

    I just received this and made my Great-Grandmothers Apple Cake. I tried toothpicks but could never really tell if the cake was done. I used this and to my amazement it was 100% better to use. Clean up is so easy hand wash and store in your baking draw. The price! What can I say.Truly a great addition to your kitchen.

    from Retired Psychologist, Homemaker Posted on

    These cake testers work great for the price. I purchased a few of them for quick testing on my cakes, beats having to use toothpicks which don't reach the center of my larger cakes. They clean off easily and ready to use again in a few seconds.

    from Caly's Kitchen Posted on

    I bought this thinking the hole it would leave would be about the same and that it would bend quite easily. Wrong! Somehow this easy-to-clean and very handy Tester leaves a much smaller hole than a toothpick and has yet to bend out of shape. *4 stars because it is confusing for testing doneness in cupcakes with real fruit.

    from The Ruffled Apron Posted on

    So much easier to use than a toothpick. does not leave huge hole in the cake. Best it is washable and reusable not more wasting money on toothpicks.

    Posted on

    This cake tester was shorter than I was expecting but I think it does the job. I'm not sure how well it works because the tester itself is really smooth and small but so far, it seems to have been on point.

    Posted on

    I had always used a toothpick to test our cakes but this product is such an improvement. The diameter is even smaller than a toothpick which means the there is a smaller hole in your desserts. Do yourself a favor and buy a few so that you can have them handy throughout your kitchen.

    Posted on

    So I bought this out of curiosity - is it really worth it compared to toothpicks? The answer: YES! This thing works more or less the same as a toothpick but I don't have to keep it in stock, it doesn't spill everywhere, and it's more sanitary than toothpicks (when you grab a toothpick you inadvertently touch several more, a cross-contamination hazard). Do yourself a favor and get one - or three - of these.

    Posted on

    Easy to use, this cake tester is great for shallow product like cupcakes and for deep products like breads or bundt cakes.

    Good for so much more than testing cake. As a line cook, when cooking something that doesn't require an exact temperature, these testers are the go-to tool. Simply insert the tester into the food you're cooking, keep it there for a few seconds, remove it and touch the area of the tester that was inside the food to your bottom lip. If it's cold, the food needs more time. If it's warm to hot, depending on the food, it's ready. Great for temping various meats or deep-fried foods, and the entry hole is tiny.

    After 5 years of using tooth picks to test our cakes we finally broke down and bought this cake tester and I have to admit I wish I had ordered more than one!

    from The Cake's Truffle Posted on

    I used to use the old testing method with a knife before and it would ruin my cakes especially if they weren't finished cooking yet. But ever since I found this it's been a miracle worker! I love them and highly recommend them to all!

    from Rosys Cakes LLC Posted on

    These work perfectly- Way better than using toothpicks or skewers as I've always done int he past. I suggest getting a couple since they are fragile and could bend easily.

    from Confections by Kristin Posted on

    Works well. The rod is slimmer than a toothpick so it leaves a smaller hole in my baked product. I use it to test the doneness on baked goods (pastries and potatoes) as well as on meats. The texturized handle provides a solid grip. The steel rod is approximately 4.5" long, with an overall length of 6".

    Posted on

    I like this cake tester, it's very convenient and nice to have, although it's hard to get out of the habit of reaching for a toothpick. I bought two of them and I plan to buy more.

    from Elegantly Sweet Pleasantries and Events Posted on

    Great product, this is alout better then using a tooth pick. Also for the price you can't beat it. I would decently recommend getting this

    Great little cakes tester. For the price it cannot be beat. Quit wasting toothpicks and/or skewers and buy a few of these! You will not be disappointed.

    from Sweet Katie Cakes Posted on

    Simple tester, Not too sharp, so you don't have to worry about accidentally jabbing yourself (which is more common than you'd think). Its simple design also makes it easy to clean.

    Previous I used toothpicks to check my to see if my cakes were ready, after purchasing this tester I no longer have a need for toothpicks and this is washable.

    These cake testers does what they're supposed to do. Much better than leaving a large hole from inserting a toothpick. They're lightweight and easy to carry around. I bought 8 of these because they're so cheap and necessary in a pastry shop.

    from Honeybee Patisserie Posted on

    Using the tester on a pan of cornbread.

    Why waste all your skewers checking cakes when you can have this cake tester thats reusable?! Its a great tool to have around the bakery and I would totally recommend it for anyone baking cakes often.

    Thank you for getting my shipment here on time. The item was exactly what I needed. The cake tester works great! I will shop again soon.

    from Granny's D's Cakes and more Posted on

    A very useful tool. In the past I've used table knives to test my jumbo muffins and it would cut right through it but I had no other option since tooth pick is too short to do the job. I had no idea there is such a thing as a cake tester. I'm glad I found this. I bought it over a year ago and it still looks great.

    Posted on

    Tired of always having to dig for a toothpick to test your cakes? This is it! It's much thinner than a toothpick so there's no worry about leaving a noticeable hole in your baked goods.

    Posted on

    We love these little guys! You can never have enough of them handy. The price is extremely reasonable and you can easily grab the flat handle (with grips) when the oven timer is going off!

    The cake testers are so much better than using a toothpick! Their also great in that they do not take up a lot of space!

    Having Ateco 1445 Cake Testers in the kitchen is a no brainer. They don't mark up food like a fork would and are much more convenient than toothpicks when making large batches.

    Posted on

    Most bakers will just use a toothpick to test their baked goods but I prefer the Ateco cake tester because it's longer and does not create unsightly holes in your muffins/loaves and other goods that won't be covered w/ frosting.

    Posted on

    No more toothpicks for me! I was skeptical when I first opened this. It seemed cheap and a bit flimsy. I am NOT disappointed! Works like a charm and I love that it's long enough to really check deep cake layers. The tab is handy, making it easy to grasp. So easy to clean. At such a great price, buy a few!

    Using the Ateco cake tester to check if a cake is done. Works like a charm every time!

    This is a product i thought was going to make baking at home easier but it just made things more complexed. I have to take more time to insert the product, cleaning it & making sure it doesn't's too small for the job at hand. Tiara P.

    This is a great cake tester. They are quite sharp so they go into whatever it is you're baking without much effort. It is also a nice length. I hated using tooth picks because they were so shorty, sometimes I wouldn't be able to get through to the center of my baked goods. The tab at the top of the product is a nice touch as it keeps your fingers cool and makes it easier to pinch the tester. Best of all, it's stainless steel, which means it can be washed and reused.

    This is does its job well. The disc at the top makes it easy to grasp and locate. At this price, you can't go wrong. It's a decent quality product.

    These cake testers are great. And they're long enough that you can test the doneness of a lot of deep food items such as quick breads.

    Every one of our bakers has one of these in their pockets. Daily use and abuse and the only time we need to replace them is when they are lost, great tools.

    from batch bakehouse Posted on

    It's simple, straight and stiff enough to stay straight. The large, colorful end makes it easy to find quickly, and ensures that you won't be accidentally discarding it.

    from Midori's Enterprises Posted on

    This cake tester is a lot better than the one I picked up from a craft store. I like this one because the test stick is very thin much like a tooth pick. The other one was way too big.

    from Simply Irresistible Treats Posted on

    this little gadget is handier than scrounging up toothpicks all the time. it doesn't create such a large whole in the product as well. very much worth the minimal cost.

    from uncommon grains Posted on

    I love this cake testing. You need to be able to check the cake and you don't want to go through all of your toothpicks while doing so. Definitely worth it.

    What a great little tool the Ateco 1445 Cake Tester (August Thomsen) is. Saves me for hunting down tooth picks. This sits in my baking case and stays till I need it. Wonderful price.

    Great little tester a must have.

    These are wonderful! I buy them almost by bulk because they are so cheap. If you think your cake might be done stick this in it and if it comes out clean, then its ready!

    these i didnt like ,I'll stick to the old knife and side pull away method to see if the cakes are done , other than that i use them to pop bubbles in fondant to clearing a small icing tip

    from jeanne's bakeshop Posted on

    These things are great to have around. And they are cheap enough to buy a handful in case you lose them. I mostly use these to test the doneness of meats. Just stick it in the center for a few seconds and touch it to your lip or wrist. Quicker than a thermometer and barely leaves a mark.

    Posted on

    I really like this little cake tester. Before I was using toothpicks and that got to be a pain to carry around in my pocket. This little gem fits in to my chef's coat and it's a breeze the clean. For the price you just can't beat it. I plan to order more to give to my culinary student friends.

    Posted on

    What a nice little cake tester. I enjoyed using it to test my brownies. Love the little grip; very comfortable and easy to hold on to. I've had others in the past but hated the top little ring at the top to hold. I will be back for more of these.

    As simple as it may seem this is a great tool. We all carry them on the day to day grind. Simple and gets the job done!

    Ateco cake tester

    So much better than a toothpick. This allows me to test large cakes that are 4 inches deep or taller. A toothpick just won't do that.

    Posted on

    A cake tester is a must for an avid baker and I am one. I have used my thermometer, pop sticks, and ice pick at various times, neither of which are good to test soft crumbed cakes. This thin-needled cake tester leaves no gaping hole and can be used multiple times to test for doneness without having to worry about ruining the cake.

    This is a nice little inexpensive tool for easily checking the doneness of baked goods without damaging the product. It is a great tool to cook with too.

    One of the SINGLE most important tools in our bakery! The tester is nice and long to check doneness in our jumbo cupcakes and muffins.

    This is one of the basic supplies in a kithen you will reach for again and again! A simple, accurate way to determine the doneness of baked goods, and better than a toothpick because of it's nice long legnth that gets right to the center of larger, higher cakes. I like to include one or two of these in a new cook's gift, or buy a bunch for a cute favor at a shower or housewarming. Ateco is a quality company, and this is a quality product!

    This is perfect for making sure your cakes and other baked goods are cooked. Just slide it into the cake and see if there's any stuff that comes out.

    I love this little tool. I constantly leave it in my sleeve and when I do need to check on meats, seafood or vegetables I take it out and test it with this handy device.

    reusable and durable. the length is long enough to poke it deep into the middle part of the cake and the price is cheap enough to buy to stock up

    I never thought I would recommend buying a cake tester but this one works very well. We use this on a daily basis and though it takes some getting used too, it works very well!

    Our resident baker says that it doesn't work as well as a good old knife. It also is rather easy to misplace--though its small size is indeed one of its benefits.

    Great product takes the guess work out of baking cakes. I would recomend this for anyone who bakes cakes. Great value and you can not even see the hole its so small.

    Bought this in 2010 and it is still going strong. I use this every Sunday after baking to test my cakes. So its done its job. Another Great Product!

    This is a pretty neat product to have around the kitchen or bake shop. its a lot better to use one of these than just a tooth pick or something else. it leaves a very tiny hole.

    Love this cake tester. Really love how nice and thin it is. It doesn't make a noticeable hole in the cake as some other brands do.

    testing my cakes was a breeze when it comes to using this gadget its is light weight and easy cleanup do not have to soak before washing

    I bake very often and this works better than any toothpick. I love, love, love, this. It's inexpensive but works very well. It's better to order more than 1 since I keep losing mine.

    Love this cake tester! It made testing my cupcakes easier. I usually use toothpicks but not anymore, just a overall great product and purchase. Must have!!

    When baking cupcakes, you can never have enough cake testers. This works well, I just wish the top was not so flat, sometimes it's hard to pick up with potholders!

    A fantastic little tool for cake baking! I had used everything from toothpicks, to chopsticks to even a butter knife to check the doneness of my cupcakes. This was such a great purchase, I recommend.

    it works well when I remember to use it but I wish it was a little bit bigger. I bought several in case they get lost.

    Great little tool that is perfect for testing all sorts of baked goods. Great for the ones that are very delicate and can sometimes get destroyed when poked with a knife or fork!

    Neatest little gadget to have in your kitchen drawer to test cakes, etc. For so long I used the tip of a steak knife and that is overkill--this item is needle thin and works the best. Patricia, Front Royal, VA

    This cake tester is simple to use, easy to handle and clean, and due to the bright colored grip, it is easy to spot on your counter top.

    This is a really handy little tool that anyone can afford to have in their kitchen. Skewers and tooth picks leave a big hole in my cakes. This leaves an almost unnoticeable hole. And it's easier to "read" than a toothpick. It's really clear when it's wet, holding a crumb, or dry. And the shipping is so fast!

    Have used this cake tester many times. I like the fact that the blue handle is east to hold on to so you don't drop it like some other skinny cake testers. I wish the lead point would be a little longer; but for the price, a must need instrument for any baker.

    This item has been requested by my customers and I am happy to have been able to purchase them at such a good price. I've used ATECO cake testers for years and have always been completely satisfied.
