I remembered this trick from baking a character cake that had to be picked up and placed on a different surface. We had decorated it on the counter Oops!
Thanks again. I really do like the way you think!

I got the pie lifter. It was only 15 dollars and works VERY well. I'm klutzy, so it was worth it.

But hey, for us that are true Die Hard Mini pie makers this was a funny find. If you just have to have one were really all set now.
My husband made the comment "Look! You Brevillians are now all over the place!"
hey, I tripped over that same item in k-mart last week while I was looking for an electric skillet. Never seen them before, now they seem to be everywhere.

KOooL, I bought one too. $12 from William Sonoma. Works Great. Works best if you let the pie KOooL OfF for a few minutes before removing.
Someone could make a fortune if they could manufacture some small pie edge rings for the outer crust browning problems.

The problem with the silicone bake ware is that they bend when you go to take them out of the oven. Too dangerous for me to handle.

They look good and sound easy, but I was worried about how much they bend too

Yes they do bend. Floppy little things. Too much for my tastes.
Depending on the filling and what you want the pie's outcome to be, just moving it can ruin the whole effect.
They are easy to clean though.

If you place them on a sturdy cookie sheet you shouldn't have any problems.
Do that before you bake them. That way you avoid the risk of the filling spilling out and burning you.
