Now I have to go look for the 2 pie maker, sounds more like what I need, considering storage space and there's only the 2 of us.

Thanks for helping me spend money, Munky!
At last, someone who groks "grok". From one of my very favorite books, Stranger In A Strange Land by probably my favorite author, Robert Heinlein.

Same here...it's too bad he no longer writes. My license plate used to say, "GOT GROK?"

Don't be sorry.. I was curious about "Grok" Just learned what you meant by that. It's all good, so no worries :)

"Grok" is to understand so thoroughly that you can do it in your sleep, it's a part of you, the person.

I forget sometimes and it sneaks by me. Just as long as I don't lapse in to Fuzzy (H. Beam Piper's Little Fuzzy) or LOLSpeak (icanhascheezburger.com). Now I have to be careful about letting Na'Vi (from Avatar) sneaking in.

WhoooHoooo! I grok too!

Heinlein passed away several years ago now. The last book published was a book called Grumblings from the Grave.

May 8, 1988, I cried...My Mom thought Shrek had died before she figured out I was talking about Heinlein. His wife Virginia passed away a few years ago, January 18, 2003. I had an e-mail relationship with Virginia for a few years until she got ill.

Really? Wow!!! That is very cool!

I think I may have to pull out either Time Enough for Love or Number of the Beast and have a re-read.

Princess..

It's here. Yeah!!! Is it ever a beautiful looking appliance. I'm stunned.
The video and pics haven't done this appliance much justice.

But anyways. I was right. The pies are 4x4, non stick surface. Just guessed when I mentioned it before. It folds up like the panini maker for easy storage. It's heavy. Sleek looking stainless steel chrome design. The cord wraps underneath the unit out of sight when stored. Indicator lights are clearly visible. One year warranty.

They recommend that if you want a buttery taste to use puff pastry or butter puff for the pastry top. And regular pie crusts for the bottom crust. Ready rolled pie crusts are not recommended for the tops.

Most types of bread can be used. White, wholemeal raisin as long as the slices aren't too thick. And that the bread doesn't have scratchy ingredients. It will keep the lid from closing properly.

Filling needs to be cooked and cooled before use.

One ready rolled 9" recipe is enough to make 2 pies.
2 pastry tops and 2 bases.

It whistles while it bakes.. So did Snow White :) letting the steam escape.

It has 13 recipes, included in the manual. Haven't really looked or tried them out yet. This unit will also make muffins..

It's not recommended that only one or two sections be used at a time. Uneven cooking can happen if it's not filled.

The best part of all.. HA! I don't have to wait until Xmas. They let me have my new toy early! What luck.. Think I'll go out and buy a lottery ticket and contemplate the universe now.

Munky.
