    So amazing. I thought I put in too much flour but it still turned out amazing and fluffy. These are by far the best pretzels I have ever had. 10 out of 10 would recommend and definitely will make these again. Father, Mother, and Fiancé all loved it.

    First time making homemade pretzels. I love ones from Annie’s or even Sam’s Club deli. These turned out a little fluffier inside rather than the chewie I’m used to. Not sure what would make them a little more dense like a more typical “soft” pretzel.

    They were amazing. I will probably never pay for a pretzel again.

    Easy and awesome. I freeze them and they make a good snack in school lunches.

    Really yummy! Our oven runs a bit cold so I had to leave them in for much longer and just take them out when they looked done, also made different sized pretzels and was a bit lax on the timing for the baking soda baths but man do they still taste good.
    I made pretzels for the first time in my life and they turned out very nice. However, I prefer pretzels a bit more crunchy on the outside - these were very soft. Nevertheless, I will definitely make them again.

    This was great! I definitely didn’t need 6TBSP of butter for brushing, though. Used about 1.

    I found the pretzels cooked too fast at such a high temperature.

    I love these pretzels! I used a bread maker for the dough and they turned out perfect! Just delicious!

    These just might be some of the best pretzels I've ever made. Fresh out of the oven they were almost "airy".
