Thread: Best pie pan

    Default Best pie pan

    I'm ready to make pies. Which pan is best? We have some
    recycled tin and alum pans and I know those frozen disposables work
    well, but I'd like to have one good pie pan. Glass, tin,
    or....?

    nb

    I have glass and tin, but they make pretty ceramic pie pans now too.
    I prefer my glass pan because I can see through it. It's a
    superficial reason, I know, but that's why I like it (actually
    "them").

    Short of looking in antique shops, can one still find real Pyrex? I
    thought it was now all cheap Chinese junk and prone to shattering.
    Not a big problem, as I love haunting antique shops.

    Look in the grocery store or old fashioned hardware store for Pyrex,
    nb. I don't know what people do to shatter Pyrex; probably throw it
    against ceramic tile when they're mad and then claim it's defective.

    I bought one at a grocery store not long ago. I cannot tell you where
    it was made, but I have had no problems so far. Ask me again after
    Thanksgiving when the new on will get a workout.

    I had one explode in a microwave a few years ago. It was impressive,
    so much so that I cannot recall the circumstances that precipitated
    it, just the shattering itself. I know I wasn't nuking the puppy or
    zapping Twinkies.

    Almost all of mine are, and I think they are superior. Perhaps
    stoneware also. I think metal is the worst for pies, though.

    I get the best results with enamelled metal pie tins.

    I like glass. They have good Pyrex glass pans that are slightly taller
    than tin pans.

    I use recycled Marie Callender pans, some kind of metal. They work
    just fine. A few times when I've given a homemade pie to a friend/
    neighbor they've thought it was Marie's because it has the name on the
    bottom. Funny. My pies, though, are nearly always key lime pies and
    take only a short baking time. I'm not much of a baker so don't know
    if a longer-baking pie would benefit from a different pan. -aem

    <laughing> Most of my metal pie pans are Marie Callender too! My
    husband went through a phase where he ate there with work friends and
    he'd buy a pie to bring home. I've eaten there twice and wasn't
    enamored with the food either time.

    Me, too. I much prefer the Pyrex glass pie plates.
    I've also always used the 10" size. I have occasionally
    baked in a tin for foil pan and they're okay.

    Commercial bakeries use metal pie pans as well as all other
    bakeware... that's what I use and strongly recommend. Glass and
    earthenware looks more attractive to some but is a bit trickier as
    recipe temps and times need to be recomputed plus one needs to be
    concerned with breakage.

    The grocery store I fequent has real Pyrex; the local kitchen and cooking
    shop too, at a much higher price than the same piece at the grocery. Heck,
    I even have a coupon, clipped from the local (STL) newspaper, for a dollar
    off on my next Pyrex purchase.

    I am always on the lookout for old Pyrex when I am on the prowl.
