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.
