The video and pics haven't done this appliance much justice.

Fantastic Munky! And thanks for the extra info, I will check into a 2 - pie maker. I'm so happy for you! Have fun with it! Let us know how it does!

Finished

Today was the first chance I've had to try this beauty out. I made 2 separate crusts. Butter puff for the top. And a regular pie crust for the bottoms.

They took about 15 minutes to cook. Made a Chicken pot pie, and a Chile pot pie's loaded up with cheese. The portion was a bit much for me. Couldn't finish one. Between the filling and crusts, they were rich tasting, a great combination of doughs. Very filling.

The pie maker was a breeze to use. Simple clean up. Cooked evenly. The only thing I wish It had come with is something non abrasive to lift the cooked pies out with. When they were finished cooking they were heavy. These are not the light banquet frozen pies.

When pressing the dough shell into it. I found that dipping the cutters into flour helped it from sticking to the dough. Other then those minor things. It's a great versatile product.

Munky.

I'm not finding the two pie maker, seems it's defunct. Trying to justify the space this one will take and how often I will use it.

Princess,
Saw one on Ebay if you want. Sunbeam brand though. I've always had terrible luck with that brand.

I have gotten to that point in life where I don't want second best. I was just out in the kitchen looking at what I could do without. Probably a good thing Shrek was in the living room

I knew I shouldn't have mentioned Ebay. It was the only place that I found that had the 2 that you wanted. Like you I'm not into second best. I'll save and wait for something then to settle for less. It's nothing that can't keep.

Have an update on the pies. Made and packed some in hubby's lunch. Grilled him with questions that I knew would be eventually asked here.

The pies stay hot for a long time. He had his 4hrs after he got to work. They weren't soggy at the bottom. No moisture collected. The crusts were still flaky, the pies themselves he was able to eat like a cookie. But not crumble. He said they were awesome!! Stopped by the store to buy a fresh ham, cheeses and fruit. On his way home.

Today I'll be experimenting around some more. Boys want pizza and breakfast pockets, some fruit pies. Sooo.. My delema now is where am I going to post all the recipes? LOL!!

Ebay was fine, Sunbeam...

I'm going to get the Breville, I really like the looks of it.

So glad to see it's working out!

How's about the "Quick Meals" or "Meals in Minutes Forum"...patiently waiting for my Breville...
