You get what you orderedDec 14, 2010
By Alyssa Berthet
I love my set. I don't understand why people are saying they need a bigger coupler included... the bigger tips are supposed to go directly in to the pastry bag using the bag as the support, no coupler needed. And yes, though it would be nice to have a demonstrative leaflet with the product, you CAN go online and check for yourself. No biggie. I'm a satisfied customer.

Pretty much all you'll ever need...May 25, 2007

I was given this kit by my husband's aunt (along with numerous other Wilton products), in an effort to start a small cake decorating business. You will probably not need to ever buy additional tips, it has all the simple and basic tips, to the more complex and lesser used ones. All in all, a very useful and great product!

55 Piece Ateco Tips SetAug 07, 2012
By Ting Pan
After reading the reviews, I decided to go ahead and purchase this set of tips. The tips are definitely not Made in the USA as the description states. Instead it is "Assembled in the USA with domestic and imported components." Unfortunately, the tips in my set seemed to be made in Korea with material that I would not consider quality. So needless to say, I'm not too thrilled about the quality of this set of tips.
The packaging on the set states that the included in this set are the following tips:
000*, 261*, 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 230
262, 15, 18, 21, 24, 26, 30, 32, 34, 96, 105, 199
42, 133, 88, 98, 168*, 44*, 47, 46, 48, 150
263, 68, 349, 352, 112, 61, 80, 100, 143, 401, 070, 090
264, 101, 104, 127, 108*, 136, 221, and 225*
NOTE: Tips marked with * are the tips not found in my set. Instead I received 00, 45, 71, 139, 55, 123.
The flower nails in this kit are numbered: 907 (large) and 909 (small).
I'm not too crazy about the case as the tips rattle and the four larger tips do not stay put in their grooves. I can't really complain much about the set as I was aware that I'd get what I paid for...but just a little heads up for others who may/may not like surprises in their tip set!

Great SetSep 17, 2011
Ateco has always been cheaper than Wilton because they supply for actual chefs and you don't have to pay for the brand Ateco. They've always produced high quality tips and decorating supplies. I would deffinately push buyer to get this set over the wilton set. As a professional pastry chef I lose tips and ruin tips all the time but with having Ateco tips online, I don't have to worry about spending a small fortune to replace mine a few times a year.

Haven't used it yet, but here goes...Dec 25, 2010
From the looks of this, I give it 4 stars. I haven't been able to actually put it to use due some life circumstances, but the quality of the tips is nice. As others have said of Ateco products, they may not be super popular like Wilton, but they are more durable. The metal is easily seen to be a bit thicker and stronger, which I like. Unlike another reviewer, mine came with everything it was supposed to. It's very nice to have all the tips I'm ever going to need, especially since the big icers and more intricate ones can cost 1.50-3 dollars each, so this is a good investment if you want to get into decorating, even if you're beginning. I really liked that it came with flower nails, both of different size, not only because you can easily make smaller or bigger roses, but also, and here's a trick, you can put them into the middle of you cake pan, along with the batter and bake it. Of course, if you make cakes bigger than the normal 8 or 9 in. round/square, then you need more nails. That will give your cake a nice even top, without have to use a corer--plus, their easier to remove than a corer. Also, they've got a nice lightly indented spiral, like a drill in the nail, so they're easier to hold and grip, while Wilton's are smooth and can easily fall if your hands are a bit sweaty or you loose your grip.
However, I have to take off a star. One reason is that I can't get the coupler to turn and set on correctly--it's always tilted. So it's a good thing I have some Wilton ones (which will hold Ateco tips, fyi). Also, like others have said, it would be nice to have a little booklet showing what each tip does. Instead, there is a picture on the back that shows a pattern and the tips which could make it. But it really stretches the line, as there's always ten tips, with different designs, that the picture says can make it.
Yet this is not too much of a problem. Almost all the Wilton and Ateco tips are numbered and designed the same. So if you really need or would like some reference, you can just buy a Wilton booklet or go to the Wilton website. This is a great product.
