Disadvantages: None really
I love baking and I love Kitchen Craft products and have loads of them around the house. They do loads of genuinely useful things which I use all the time in the course of cooking to make things a little bit easier.
The cake tester is a bit of a simple product and there isn't a lot to it but it looks cute and I like to have dedicated products for my cooking so that I always know where they are what is supposed to be used for what.
The cake tester is basically a long stainless steel skewer that you use to dip in to a cake to check if it is cooked. If the skewer comes out clean you know it is done whereas if it comes out with bits of uncooked gloop on it then you know the cake needs a little bit more time in the over.
It does actually come in handy as sometimes when baking cakes they can look and feel ready and you don't realise that it needed a little longer until you cut in to it by which time it is too late to do anything about it.
I only need to use this if I am baking a cake that I am unfamiliar with as with cakes I bake on a regular basis I have the cooking times pretty much down pat.
I suppose I could just use a kebab stick but as I said I like having dedicated products for my cooking and baking. I also like the little cute retro looking tin disk on the top which says what it is.
The cake tester is basic but it also isn't expensive and only costs £1 making it worth the money as far as I'm concerned. It is also easy to clean and is dishwasher safe. It won't revolutionise your baking but it is a handy little thing to have regardless.
Summary: A simple but handy little item for baking
