lattice pie roller... lame-o!

So, in your expert opinion, does this

remotely resemble this?

Nope, didn't think so.

I was pretty excited about this lattice roller. Supposedly, you roll the pie dough to the right size, run over it with the lattice roller, lift it and pull it apart gently to expose the pretty shape, and lay it on top of the pie. I tried more than once, rolling it thinner and thicker, and it was a mess every time. Not only that, the pie crust stuck in the roller and it was impossible to clean.

Worst $6.95 I ever spent. The only question now is: is it worth the cost of shipping to return it?

Bottom line: it ain't that all hard to make a lattice top crust, and I will stick to the old-fashioned way.
