Was expecting these to produce larger dumplings more like chinese dumplings. Would be perfect for ravioli etc but a bit small for the dumplings I bought it to make. Perhaps a more clear description/name would help with this issue. Will definitely still get some use. Makes creating multiple dumplings in one go so easy!

Thanks for your feedback Rebecca, we try to be as transparent as possible with our products and have included the dimensions for the tray on the product display page. Our hexagon tray is perfect for bite-sized snacks but definitely produces small dumplings. If you are wanting to make Chinese dumplings this one might be more suitable for you - https://thermomix.com.au/products/stainless-steel-dumpling-mould
Hope that helps!
I have high hope to make nice shape of dumplings when I purchased it. However, I tried twice and both not even close to what I expected. I used homemade dough by TM6, followed the instructions of hexagonal dumpling tray. When I pressed down the dough in order to cut out the shape of dumplings, it just didn't work. Then I used a knife to cut around but the filling all came out. At the end, I rolled the dough into walnut size balls by hand. What a disappointment! I wonder whether it can really cut out the dough into a dumpling shape as what it described.
I wonder whether there is any demonstration video that I can refer to. Thanks.
Sorry to hear you are disappointed Pauline! There certainly is a bit of a knack to it. You might have to roll over the dumplings a few times before they pop out. If your mixture is quite sticky it might be worth giving them a slight push to help them get out. Sometimes extra flour on the tray can make the process easier. Hopefully this helps, I'm sure once you get used to the tray you will love it!
