Not entirely recommendable
The silicon is solid and everything seems to be of good quality and cleans nice and easy.

The baking sheet is by far the best part of the kit. It makes it easy to portion the macaron mixture, even though it still needs a bit of practice.
The container for the dough only works ok. Obviously it is supposed to work with air pressure and the container is not air tight enough. I had to open the lid several times while working (to 'refill' the air). I filled it not more than half, maybe that was too much.

I guess my biggest issue is that there is a lot of wasted dough in end because it just can't all be pushed out of the container and you still have get a good feeling for portioning.
So in the end I will use the baking sheet but I might use a piping bag for the mixture

Great Reusable Produce
Great kit - my biggest issue with making macaroons was piping even circles. I don't draw even circles so circles on parchment didn't work for me either. The silicone mat has made macarons a snap, and I love that the mat is reusable.

And though I heard a lot of people don't like the piping bag, I really like it. I don't like piping bags because I find them hard to wash and dry properly. This is easy to fill, and very easy to wash and dry. I haven't had a problem getting 99% of the batter out - sure it's not as easy as a traditional piping bag, but it's doable.

I like this kit so much I'm thinking of buying these as gifts this year

good for beginners
got this as a gift last Mother's day and used it during my sister's birthday. The silicon mat was made for mini macarons and not the usual macaron sizes which i was expecting. But it was okay because being mini means you will be able to make lots of it. If you don't have the piping bag, the piping mold is fine esp for beginners. I don't see the use with the rest of the other pipes as you always sandwich macarons with a filing. Downside, you can't finish the rest of the filing in the brown pipe bag as you have to open it and spoon it out to make 4more macarons.
Anyway, making it the first time (made salted caramel flavor) for me was a success and looked like they were professionally made, and all in the kit were easy to clean.
Best part of the kit is having a recipe for it.
Overall, I'm giving it four stars and it is a keeper for me. I think the price of $40 is pricey

unfortunately a waste
seems like a good idea but it isn't. The decomax container is rather hard to use and is near impossible to get all the batter out so you end up wasting some. Additionally, while the mat seems like a good idea to help you measure the right amount, I've never found macarons to rise perfectly on any silicone mat. This kit is clearly designed for beginners but I think it poses challenges that would make a beginner never want to make these cookies again and frankly, they aren't that hard. Get a pastry bag, some parchment paper and just practice

Don't waste your money
At a macaron class at Sur la Table, the chef recommended this kit. Thinking it would make things easier, I bought one. The macarons I baked on it stuck to the mat and they were like an empty shell. I had more macaron dough than fit on the mat, so I baked the rest on a cookie sheet lined with parchment. They turned out perfectly. I will be returning this kit. In the future I will print out a template to put under the parchment paper to get even sized macarons.

no mat
Bought the kit for making large and accurate amounts of macaroons. Recipes come with that are not very good and the mat does not brown and control size of cookie. Ended up free handing on parchment with alot better results. The squeeze container did work well for us.

Seemed like a great idea...container doesn't work well
I bought this after taking the macaron course at the store. Loved the taste from the store recipes. I was disappointed when I tried to use the squeeze container, because the air leaks out of the lid and I had to open it several times to get enough pressure to squeeze the dough out. Would have been wonderful if this had not happened. In the class, we used the Wilton piping bags, so will go back to that method. The silicon sheet is great. Also, the directions and recipe are SO SMALL that it is difficult to read them.

Easy to use and very helpful!
I love this kit! Everything is super easy to use and they turn out great. In the past I've used parchment paper, but it always sticks to the bottom of the cookies. They lift right off the silicone mat. I had no issue with the squeeze container. I filled it with half the batter each time and had no issues with running out of air on the inside. When the batter was running low, I just tapped on the side and it fell down into the bottom.

Spring gift set!
I ordered this kit with some cocktail napkins & tea towels as a gift. My intent was to give something that my friend could use with her kids.
It was great! Easy for kids to use. The macaron's were wonderful!
A good way to entice the younger ones to get into cooking.

Love it
I got this kit before reading all the reviews and I'm glad I did it. While the first batch of macarons was in the oven, I read the reviews (nothing else to do, had to wait anyway) and because of them I decided to try the old fashioned parchment paper way. So I printed the circles and used the parcment. The macarons from the silicone mat were PERFECT, they grew up vertically as they are supposed to with the feet and all, while the ones from the parchment turned out inclined and strange (still round, so the problem was not the shape, but they had feet on one side only). One tip: fill the whole circle of the mat, not only the inner circle or they get really bite size macarons (still delicious and awfully cute).
The shell recipe is very easy to follow and it gives you the exact guidance on resting the batter and cooking time, so just follow it. Still have to develop my filling skills, because I made my own fillings not following the recipes in the booklet, so they turned out to be a little too liquid. You can probably make a buttercream and use the pen to fill the shells.
I had no problem using amost all the batter, wasing not more than with a regular sleeve. Cleaning was really easy too.
I definitely recommend this product. Wish it came with an extra mat (but you can find one at amazon).

dissapointed
I was very excited when I bought this kit, but unfortunately my high expectations were shattered after a few uses of this mat. This mat has frustrated me and made me feel like i'm doing something wrong several times. I've found that this mat doesn't cook the macarons throughly and they then stick to the sheet. One day I made half of my macarons on parchment paper and half on this baking sheet. The ones on parchment paper turned out perfectly and the ones on the macaron sheet were a crumbly mess. I would suggest using parchment paper and a pastry bag instead. This is not worth your $40.
