No, I do not recommend this product.
Bought these to extract a frozen steel nipple from a tub fixture. The one of the correct size would not "bite" into the nipple with sufficient resistance to allow the nipple to be turned. The part to be inserted looks to me to be too short to allow the taper necessary to firmly seat it in the interior of the pipe and the spiral grooves that bite into the wall of the pipe too smooth to adequately grip it.
Pros: cheap
Cons: don't work

They call this a pipe nipple extractor. However, with the use of a drill and a drill bit these work better than all the e-z outs I have tested.

Review 4 for 5-Piece Steel Pipe-Nipple Extractor Set

Did not work on OLD steel 1/2 inch water pipe

I got these to remove a couple nipples during a bathroom job. I had to remove two nipples from under the sink. They were steel pipe and had been there for probably 50 years. I could not get a wrench on the nipples because a tile job after initial installation did not leave any room for a wrench to grab. All these extractors could do was flare the end of the nipple--did not budge them. I ended up working a basin wrench into the wall cavity and putting a big pipe wrench on the basin wrench bar.
These extractors might be good for a less stubborn nipple or one that had not lost so much thickness/strength at the open end, but for old steel they could not get deep enough into the stuck nipple to grab a solid part of the pipe.

Review 5 for 5-Piece Steel Pipe-Nipple Extractor Set

Too short, loose grip.

No, I do not recommend this product.
I got a 3/4in broken shower arm. First, I bought this product, but found very difficult to use because it is too short.
I had to be careful or it will drop inside the wall. And also, even it includes 5, but it does not do the job. I put it in, and it it very loose, and it does not extract at all and so I ended up getting longer one with better grip.
I returned this as soon as I found out it is not working.

Won't fit

Front end of the extractor was not sharp enough or too wide for it to fit into the pipe.
1/4 Pipe stuck in, 1/8 extractor too small and 1/4 is too big.
Won't recommend this. I'm buying REPS extractor.

No, I do not recommend this product.
I was trying to extract a broken off shower arm. They are 1/2" MIP. None of the extractors fit, they may be OK for black or galvanized pipe but they do not fit for Moen shower arms. I returned them for credit.
