    Great sturdy filling tip. If you fill any product you will need several of them. They are a workhorse that does not let you down.

    This is a well made tip that works for filling items. Be aware that the tube is very small and will not accommodate thicker items like custard or pastry cream very well. Overall I am pleased with the tip.

    from Fika, LLC Posted on

    This tip is definitely well made, but the description is a bit misleading when it says you can fill cream puffs and eclairs...those are often filled with custard, not just whipped cream, and custard is definitely too thick to use with this tiny tip. Whipped cream should be fine, jelly might be okay, and chocolate and mousse will only work if they're fairly thin. This is a very small nozzle, I wish I had known that there's a larger tip before I bought this one. I'm going to try again with the other one. I like that it has a bevelled edge for easier insertion into baked goods, and a long stem to get in deeper. I just think it's too narrow to be of much use to anyone.

    Trying to fill cream puffs with a custard and a too-thin tip

    Made really well. The length of the insertable part of the tip comes in at under just 2 inches so be aware of that when ordering. Nonetheless it works and fills pastries really well.

    Well made and pipes nicely.

    This Ateco pastry tube is amazing. I use it to make strawberry and grape filled donuts. They all come out great and the filling stays put also.

    Ateco tips are the best. This Ateco 231 Bismark tube tip is nice to have around for those important moments when something needs to be filled with ganache, jelly, whipped cream, etc. Lets face it, everything should be injected with some sort of filling as it makes the world a better place. The Ateco 231 Bismark is the longer and smaller tip opening cousin of the Ateco 230 Bismark which comes with the Ateco 783 55-piece set. So this Atech 231 bismark is the long and skinny, and its Ateco 230 buddy is short and fat.

    Pumping pastry cream right into cupcakes with this pastry tube gives guest an added delight with each bite. A little product can sometimes go along way.

    I absolutely love this product! This Bismarck pastry tube works great! I love how defined the icing looks from using this pastry tube. Great quality!

    This Ateco 231 Pastry tube is perfect for filling your eclairs, cupcakes, croquembouche shells and many other delicious treats. I highly recommend purchasing a couple of these...

    i've been happy with everything i've gotten from ateco and these pastry tubes are great. they make filling pastries and cupcakes super easy without spills or destroying the product. super easy to use product.

    Works well and does not create a big hole in the item you are filling. It works best for things like whipped cream or custards. I tried to use it with Nutella and it was too thick. I also used it with seedless jam and it was almost too runny. So having right consistency in your filling is key.

    Posted on

    Love this tube for filling cupcakes with a jam filling. Unlike previous corer style products, this didn't leave a huge hole or make a mess. Filling was quite easy and this was the perfect size!

    from Sweet Creations Posted on

    this large bismark pastry tube is perfect for filling cake pops with icing and for doughnuts also. easy to clean and shipping was so fast

    Posted on

    This is a large due to its length. It is very good for getting filling into treats without a large gouge out of your creations.

    Posted on

    I have been using this tip to fill donuts. It has been doing a great job, but if you'd like to fill pastries with jellies or jams, you will need to be sure they are smooth enough. I had to push so much marionberry jam through a sieve first before I could fill my pastries. It gives it a nice consistency but was a bit of a pain to have to do.

    from PowerQuee Media Posted on

    THIS IS A BIT LARGER PASTRY TUBE..VERY NICE TO USE FOR FILLING CANNOLI OR SHELLS OR EVEN PASTRY...MADE WELL AND FOR A GREAT PRICE..A BIT HARD TO CLEAN THE SKINNY TUBE PART BUT WITH A LITTLE MANEUVERING THE TINY BOTTLE/TIP BRUSH WORKS..ALWAYS DRY WELL BEFORE STORING.

    Posted on

    Good tip for decorating medium and smaller cakes. Tip is made of nice metal and the price is fair for individual tips. Will buy more.

    Listing it as a Bismark Tube size Large it was really small. I used it with the piping bag and it was terrible. Nothing came through as hard as I squeezed. I made donuts and weren't able to fill the bismarks with this tip.

    This pastry tip works great for both large and small cannolies. It has stood up to the wear and tear of a typical kitchen without bending or breaking.

    Posted on

    The tip works as expected; however. I was somewhat disappointed to learn that the needle itself is actually very small in diameter. Piping pastry cream through this tip is almost impossible.

    Posted on

    I Love love love these Ateco 231 Large Bismark Tube (August Thomsen) to fill pastries, it goes right it and doesn't make a mess! Great Buy!

    Posted on

    I love, love, love the Ateco Bismark Tube Tips! These tips are the very best for filling pastries. This small tip creates a minimal hole in the pastry wall and depending on what medium you are using, they do not clog. If you have a tip brush clean up is easy.

    from Gert's Goodies Posted on

    great to have this Ateco 231 Large Bismark Tube (August Thomsen) great to use for writing names and greetings for the cakes that using piping gel too

    from ashlexdrei tradings /sweets by chef jhay Posted on

    This product is great to fill all my pastries. It has the perfect length to reach centers. It doesn't make the whipped cream flat. Highly recommended.

    from coco pastry love Posted on

    We love this tube. It makes filling the inside of our cupcakes with fruit preserves a breeze! So easy to clean after using it as well.

    from Mimi's cupcakes Posted on

    I love getting creative with this Bismark Tube! It works very well when filling cupcakes, eclairs, and cannolis. The tube is durable and easy to clean.

    Posted on

    If you have the same donut-making kit that I do, you've no doubt found that the plastic tube that comes with it and has all kinds of tips for filling and decorating is so small it has to be refilled frequently, and the filling doesn't get all the way to the middle of the donut. This tip, combined with one of the disposable pastry bags I've gotten from Webstaurant Store, is a far better alternative. Good purchase!

    Posted on

    Love this tip! It makes filling cupcakes a breeze. As with all bismark tips, it can sometimes get clogged if your fruit filling has even tiny chunks, so make sure it is fully pureed.

    Posted on

    I meant to buy the small Bismark tubes, but these work just as good. I would buy them again if I needed them. Still a good product. I'll just be using the small ones only because that's want I prefer.

    from SB Posted on

    I have a home based cake business and I often use this large bismark tube for filling the eclairs and cupcakes. Nice size, works great, highly recommend.

    Posted on

    Works great to fill my cupcakes like a charm. Doesn't matter what the filing it, it flows through, makes a nice sized filing and cleans up easy!

    Posted on

    LOVE THIS FOR FILLING DOUGHNUTS, ECLAIRS, CANOLI AND OTHER PASTRIES. SO MUCH BETTER THAN USING A REGULAR PASTRY TIP WHICH HAS A TENDENCY TO SQUISH THE DOUGHNUT.LETS YOU FILL ECLAIRS AND CANOLI ALL THE WAY TO THE CENTER FOR PERFECTION.

    from WINDY CORNER Posted on

    I have never had a good time with a bismark tip. The idea and concept are there, but when I actually try to use them it never works the way it should. I can say that the construction on this tip, just as every other Ateco tip, is very very good!

    Posted on

    We love our Bismark tips! They allow us to quickly and neatly fill everything from simple cupcakes to complicated pastries. They are easy to clean and hold up to years of regular daily use.

    from Mad Batter Baker Posted on

    The long tube allows for filling even the thickest cupcakes. It is made with quality and can be cleaned in the dishwasher or with a pipe cleaner.

    these are great, well-made Bismark icing tubes for using with the plastic Pastry Bags...effective and inexpensive...another great item for your kitchen or professional bakery., works great..

    from Oak Hill Bulk Foods, Inc. Posted on

    This Large Bismark Tube/Tip does have a "smaller" tip compared to the Size Small Bismark Tip, perfect for larger items that need a filling, since the tip IS longer.

    Posted on

    I enjoy making cream puffs and pastries, this is the perfect tip. I am very pleased with the Ateco line, they wash up very nice and are easy to use. Thanks for making it available to me.

    Posted on

    Ateco 230 Small Bismark Tube great for filling donuts and pastries. Additionally, the size of the tool allows me to put in just the right amount of filling in cupcakes.

    Posted on

    This is a wonderful addition to my different sizes of regular tips. I especially like this one because I can easily fill a bunch of puff pastries without having to first cut a hole in them. What a great time saver! I highly recommend this tip.

    from kedbys kreations & party rental Posted on

    This Large Bismark Tube is a very sturdy product. We use it alot in our bakery for filling doughnuts, cupcakes and churros. It is so versatile and we couldn't be without it.

    from Havana Nights Café & Bakery Inc. Posted on

    The Ateco 231 Large Bismark Tube (August Thomsen) are great for filling donuts, cupcakes, and larger pastries. Not so good for smaller pastry as it makes to large of a hole. Nice price and fits snugly on my hard plastic pastry tube.

    This works well for filling some items. But when working with thicker pastry creams, it takes a good bit of effort to get each portion out.

    Posted on

    Makes filling cupcakes and donuts very easy. Is large enough for long johns and bizmarks yet can use it for small items such as mini cupcakes.

    Posted on

    I use this tip to fill all kinds of desserts like cupcakes, cream puffs, chocolate eclairs. I recommend using a real (canvas or plastic coated ) piping bag with it for added strength especially if your filling is thick. I've tried using it with a disposable clear piping bag but the disposable plastic bags stretch too much and they sometimes pop because I have to squeeze so hard. No need for a coupler, just make sure you only cut a hole big enough for the long tip to protrude out , if the hole is too big the tip will pop out of the bag.

    This tip is great for filling cupcakes of course. I love Ateco tips. They are very durable and easy to clean on the inside. Great buy.

    from DREAM CRUMB TRUE CAKES Posted on

    I bought this bismark tip for my daughter who likes to make doughnuts .She can now not only make her doughnuts but fill them like a pro i recently used the tip to fill mini cupcakes.This tip has many use its a good buy,

    from Mel Posted on

    Used it to fill éclairs which were my first try worked great for being my first time. Worked great was able to completely fill the éclairs easily without big gaps of filling in the middle.

    Posted on

    I so wanted one of these to fill my eclairs, but it won\\'t fit in either of the 2 different sized couplers I\\'ve ordered so far, so I haven\\'t been able to use it yet. My first order was for the small couplers and bag, but this is too big to fit. I ordered the big bag and coupler, but it\\'s too small for that, so I guess there\\'s a medium somewhere that this fits. Be sure you know, otherwise it\\'s a waste. It is a good size for filling the eclairs, and I think it will work great if I can get the right size couplers and bags. It went through the dishwasher with no rust, so good that way.

    Very affordable Pastry tube made by Ateco Great for filling cupcakes and pastries with creams, puddings, and even fruit filling. Easy to use and clean.

    from Countryside Cakes Posted on

    This is a great item to have for filling pastries with delicious creams and fruit toppings. A must have for making stuffed doughnuts. Inexpensive but will last for years.

    Posted on

    I use this tip when i fill cupcakes just because it is there, i should have purchased the thicker one because of using thicker liquids it makes it a long and drawn out process, great for chocolate ganache that is on the softer more liquid side though.

    Posted on

    the bismark tube is a great invention for baking pastry. i use this for stuffing my baking product such as flavor cake and pate a choux.

    Posted on

    These are great for so many different uses! Keep it attached right to your pastry bag and quickly and easily fill eclairs, donuts, pastries etc with pastry cream.

    Posted on

    What a nice bismark tube! Great for filling doughnuts and cupcakes! Works well to fill strawberries with cream cheese for a simple yet elegant dessert!

    I brought this large bismark piping tube to fill the inside of my cupcakes. i mostly use it to fill cheesecake cupcakes. Just a great product and very easy to use.

    Excellent price and superb quality. These tips are very easy to clean and well constructed with a very good quality materials. We will order many more.

    from CountryWalk Posted on

    I ordered this item in two sizes to fill my regular and mini cupcakes. Use it with a disposable pastry bag and it works great with zero mess! Now I use it all the time.

    from Treat Gallery Posted on

    Good tool for filling creme puffs and other small pastries. The only problem I had with it was that the tube itself is pretty thin, making it almost impossible to pipe out thick fillings such as pastry cream. The diameter of the tip is 5/16".

    Posted on

    This is a high quality tip perfect for filling cupcakes with mousse or other fillings. I like how the end is longer to allow it to be inserted into a taller cake.
