Now, what's the difference between Bakechef's $8.98 pie maker from Target and the $79.95 Breville from WS?

The pies all look lovely, BTW.

The WS costs more but really. I don't know. Maybe the evenness of the heating? I've never seen another brand.

I would bet that the build quality of the breville is better, metal vs plastic. I will say, I've seen the breville in person and this has the same exact plates on it to form the pie, on the inside they look exactly the same. The browning seemed quite even from pie to pie.

The Breville is much, much better because we paid the full MSRP for it. It's what happens when you MUST have the new toy before the prices start coming down. Even though we paid out the nose for it, it has earned it's keep.

I have to stick around the house for some repair guy to show up later . I am going to run up to the store early this AM for some fall apples and make apple pies today.

I know this is Heresy-- I almost put my Pie Maker in a cupboard when I pulled the AC's the other week, and it's cool enough to use the oven again. But then I thought I better keep it on the counter. It fits in right spiffy nice next to the microwave. It's so shiny. Like a Mercedes in the Kitchen.

PF, when Shrek makes crab rangoons, does he use egg roll wrappers and does he make them the regular way ("purse" shaped or folded) or does he do them pie shaped? And about how long does one bake wrappers.? thanks.

I hope Bake Chef, and anyone, posts recipes in the Mini Pie Recipe threads. I have all 3 Pie threads bookmarked.

This time Shrek got wonton wrappers. He will fold them into triangles and 2 will fit in each cup. He steams them instead of frying, they are so good. Takes about 12 minutes for them to steam.

Oops,, I meant wonton wrappers. I understand he's not frying them, this is good. Is Steaming them differernt than baking them? How do you steam in the pie maker? Just pop them in and close the lid?

maybe I haven't had enough morning coffee. Thanks,
