I'll have to check when I get home. I know the square one is generic, but I think the round one has a name like Tonka or something on it.

Did this company start in the mid 60’s, being sold out of the inventors’ car trunk??
The 1st makers I ever used were purchased by my dad from the “inventor” at a camp site in the mid 60’s. Some where out west around Grand Canyon, Teton, Mt. Alta areas, we were on a 6 weeks trip west from Indiana, I was around 10 and do not know exactly what camp, state or local, we met him at other than I remember bathing in the lake. He was looking for a retail connection for his invention and was not having much luck finding one that would handle only 1 item.


I like the round ones better than the square ones because they seal the pie better, as breads are hot square and many are not as large as the square ones need to seal properly. The trimmings make great bird watching "bait" food.


The makers that we bought were not smooth inside or out they were stepped.

My brother had them until his canoe turned over at Eli.

I used one of those once, when i was around 5 or 6, except no one told me you had to flip them over. and being so young and stupid, i didn't realize it. I ended up with a cherry pie that was burnt to a crisp on one side.

If you have a round pie iron, then you can use hamburger rolls and not bread. (It saves the trimming and makes for a thicker "crust".) For pies, an easy camping substitute for the sugar is 1/2 a marshmallow. It makes for a gooier (sp) filling, and when you are camping that's half the fun.

Talking how can i get one?

well, this is my first post.....i recently started camping again after yrs of neglect....i used to go all the time thru school w/the scouts as well as buddies in college....now im goin with my girlfriend......never heard of pie irons but they seem like a good "tool" to have. I read that someone used a pie iron to make sanduche de cubano aka cuban sandwich and that sounds like a great idea....thanks for the ideas guys and i look forward to talkin to u all soon.

We received four of them as gifts but never really used them. After reading these posts I think I will get them out and try some things this weekend, thanks.

Let me know how you like them. I've got a bunch of cast iron & ovens & am going to try to cook more outside than over the stove of the trailer. I'd like to find some larger ones so that I could cook several pies or one large on that can be shared. Guess that's where having several irons in the fire comes from.
