Well, I found a two pie maker for $16.00. I can't see me eating four pies before one of them goes bad and ends up in the garbage disposal. It is not a Breville, but it got good reviews. And it doesn't come with the pie lifter but does have the crust cutters. I can order one from Breville. One woman complained that she had to chisel off any food spillage. When I see only one review that is not favorable I tend to wonder what that person did wrong. The other reviews stated that they had no trouble with cleanup. So it is off to BB&B for me. They may have the pie lifter also.

Does the plate come out for easy cleanup? Or do you have to clean the cups while it is in the machine? It doesn't make any difference. I still want one.

Well alright Addie! Welcome to the minipie making family!

The pie molds have to be cleaned in the machine on the Breville pie maker.

It's no big deal. I use a paper towel damp with cooking oil to clean mine. Cleanup is easy.

Thank you. BB&B has the two pie maker for less than $18.00 so that is the one I will go for.

Jo,
Your pies look sooo tasty!
Catching up on what the Pie Cults been up to the last few days. It's been quite a lot. You guys are quick!

I had the same questions about the gravy ratio's per batch of Chicken pot pie's. Found a solution that would be " Guy Approved " Can they be Critics or what?

Went on a hunch while stocking up on pie supplies. Found these gravy mixes. At a Hostess Bakeshop of all places. I buy the Chicken and the Brown gravy by the cases. 1 package of mix makes 3 1/2 Cups. It's perfect for a batch of pies. Southeastern Mills Online Store

I use 4 large Chicken breasts, and veggies like you. It leaves plenty of room for you to have a little extra gravy in each pie. If anyone's into KFC's gravy, ( we are ) try the brown. It's an exact duplicate.

You can cheat like I did the other day. Tossed some chicken breasts into the crock. Pre mixed a pouch of gravy. Poured it over the top. Set it on low all night. All I had to do the next day was chop or shred the chicken. Prep the veggies, and get the doughs rolled out. Saved me a lot of time. Perfect pies every time. Life's good

Munky.

Welcome to the Cult.. Babe To?... I never thought I'd see the day... On the other hand..I did to see it coming.

Clean up is a snap. The coating is non stick. Mine gets cleaned only when it needs it. Let the pie maker cool down just a bit. Wipe it down with a wet paper towel.
Cleaning it while it's cold will scratch the surface.

See you in just a little while

Munky.

Thinking of the egg roll wrappers and crab rangoon filling...

Crab Rangoon
8oz cream cheese, softened
8 oz lump crab meat, picked over for shells
2 green onions, thin sliced with green tops
2 cloves garlic minced
sea salt to taste

mix all together and chill.

To make:
8 egg roll wrappers
one egg mixed with 2 tablespoons water

Brush all 4 edges of the wrapper with egg mixture, place 2 tablespoons Crab Rangoon mixture in center of wrapper, fold over corner-to-corner and seal. Place two Rangoons in each cup of the piemaker along with 2 teaspoons water to steam. Bake 6-10 minutes.

Serve with favorite Asian dipping sauce. No Deep Frying!

Now I'm thinking about pot stickers....
