564tamara....I wonder about the premade korker, as I've never used it. I wrap and bake my own so I have control over temp, starching, etc. With the premade you pretty much have to take what you get, unless you know personally who you're buying from. KWIM?

Thanks!!! I still have an entire tray still on the rods because I got frustrated with the first couple not looking perky like my 3/8 korkers so put them aside. I will try doing it this way .
