Creating eye-catching cookies is an ideal festive activity for some and a stressful chore for others, especially around the holidays. Luckily, you don’t need to be a professional to bake professional-looking desserts.
The OXO cookie press delivers perfectly stenciled designs when pressed onto a baking sheet. Plus, it also provides an outline for applying the icing. Whether you’re leisurely making cookies with kids or preparing yourself for a holiday baking marathon, the durable plastic device is absolutely essential.
The cookie press comes with 12 stainless steel disks featuring shapes you can use each season, including flowers, a butterfly, a leaf, a heart, a tree, a wreath, and a snowflake, plus a slim storage box to hold them all. The press’s clear cylinder tube allows you to see how much dough is left in the press, while the sturdy plastic lid easily twists off for filling and cleaning.

It’s even easier to successfully press stenciled dough on a baking sheet than it is to fill the press itself. It features a non-slip base that holds the press steady and a lever that’s built for repetition. To clean, toss the dishwasher-safe barrel and disks in with the rest of your baking tools; hand-wash the top and plunger.
The OXO cookie press has garnered over 1,700 five-star reviews on Amazon from shoppers who say it’s easy to use and clean, won’t stick or slip on the pan, and (most importantly) makes perfectly shaped cookies every time. “I absolutely love it! The cookies came out in better shape than the previous cookie press I had. So happy I gave it a try,” one reviewer wrote.
Another said, “I haven’t made spritz cookies in years and needed a new spritz cookie press. The cookie press was so easy to use; my cookies looked and tasted wonderful and the cleanup was a breeze.”
Even experienced bakers can tell the difference. “I’ve been using cookie presses for 60 years and this is by far the best ever,” one said.
At just $32, the OXO cookie press with stainless steel disks is an affordable way to create perfect spritz cookies throughout the year. Buy it on Amazon to have it on hand for the holidays.
