Cookie Press and Krumkake Iron Question - Which kind/brand is best?

theamusedbouche | Jan 6, 201109:21 PM

Having moved away from the nest and to my own house, I am now in the position of making Christmas cookies without my mom (or her appliances).
We usually make Norwegian spritz cookies with a cookie press and we make Krumkake with an iron.
I don't have either of these tools and I need to get them.
I'm wondering if anyone has advice as to which cookie presses (automatic, hand cranked?) are best, and which brand of Krumkake irons are best?
My sister-in-law made Christmas cookies this year with the Pampered Chef cookie press and they looked terrible - engorged tree-shaped blobs, bubbly almost-stars - the press just doesn't make a nice looking cookie.
I don't want this same ugly-cookie fate to befall me, so I thought I'd ask the Chowhounders which presses actually make good looking cookies.
