Breville's Personal Pie
 
I've been wanting this for a while now.
the Personal Pie

Can't wait to try out my own recipes for it. Just ordered it tonight. Took a little bit of negotiating with my husband. Pawned him! :lol: He understands what I ask for in the kitchen, just means extra good lunches for himself. Easy bargaining table tonight.

I've the Breville Panini maker Panini Quattro love how it's withstood our daily use. For 5 years now. It still looks new. Wonderful product.

Heh! That's what he gets for letting me look at links online...:lol:

I'm curious about the personal pie maker, can you make just one at a time or must you make 4 each time?

I don't see why you couldn't make just one individual. The pies approximate size is 4x4. When the unit is ready and loaded, latched the whole thing still heats up.. Empty or not.

I like that the pies aren't too big or small. You won't have to heat up the entire kitchen by having the oven on. Bake times are reduced.

Haven't found much around for recipes. I bet it would make some nice deep dish pizzas. Pot pies and such.. Make them up ahead of time and freeze for later use.

2 out of 6 reviewers didn't like it and those 2 had to do with the crust and portion size. I am really intrigued, could be an easy and quick way to use up leftovers AND make my lunches more portable.

Espresso vs FOOD! Tough choice.

Yeah only 2.. Pie crusts are hard to make anyways. Maybe they had a bad recipe to begin with and didn't preheat the unit. Seemed they gave up on it without giving it another try.

You know I forgot to mention that Breville has another pie maker. 2 pie capacity. Deep dish. I really want a pot pie!! :lol:

Glad I picked the 4. I have a feeling that's going to be used quite a bit around here. And seems simple enough for my boys to use. With some creativity I bet they would make some nice taco bowls using flour tortillas.

Portability!! Didn't even think about that. My husbands job he's on his feet most of the day. These can easily be reheated and eaten on the go. Good idea!

Most people don't Grok (understand) pie crust, so they hate making pies. I Grok it so totally that I was the piemaker for umpteen years and grew to hate it!:lol: Was nice to spread my wings.

Now I have to go look for the 2 pie maker, sounds more like what I need, considering storage space and there's only the 2 of us.

Thanks for helping me spend money, Munky!:rofl:

Price had nothing to do with it for me Babe. Breville is worth every dime you pay for it, regardless of what you buy. It's not the Sunbeam brand that I could have chosen. Or a George Foreman. I've been extremely happy with the quality and durability of my Panini maker.

Tarts to me are tedious and boring. It's not a tart maker.

I've had my eye on that product for a while now. It's not a one hit wonder.
But hey it's not here yet. I can't have it until Christmas. That was part of the negotiation. Give me time to experiment. I'm sure I'll be able to pull a few recipes off in it :)
