Materials good but product not big enough
The diameter of the pie weight should be at least 8"" and the silicone edges should be extended to reach up to the top of the pie pan. Crust sides will puff up as well as the bottom, so they need to be flattened against the sides of the pie pan. This pie weight needs to be redesigned, or several sizes offered according to the diameter of the pie pan used

a pretty good product
I have used this twice now. I used beans and tin foil for pie weights before. This makes a nice bottom, but the red plastic sides could be longer. It only goes half way up the pie shell, so the crust puffs out over it. That makes it sometimes difficult to pull out. And then you have indentations in your crust sides. Of course, your pie filling will cover it up, but I like it to look a little nicer.... just my preference! And it is a bit hot to pry out....the red plastic is ok, but you don't want to touch the metal

Life Changer
I used pie weights, beads, beans, aluminum foil and parchment paper items in the past. This item is non-stick, easy to use, clean and store. I will never go back to the old ways again. I refrigerate my crust overnight and blind bake at 425F from 20 mins, remove pie weight, eggwash and bake additional 10 minutes at 350. Crust did not puff over silicone and easily removed.

easy to use, easy to clean
It is a great item for pie bakers. Just put it in the pie, bake it and remove in a snap. I also like it as it can be put in the dishwasher separating the metal center from the silicon.

My daughter was looking for a pie weight, and this looks like a good one!

Most pie weights only fit the bottom and I need something for the sides
Roxanne M on Dec 7, 2015
Maybe it will inspire me to start making pies? Maybe? My husband will hope so.

This product provides the best shrinkage protection and saves the shape of the crust better than any other product I have tried. will order more.
Helene M on Dec 2, 2015
Have tried all other methods of weighting pastry crust with limited success; this looks like a winner.
Deborah F M on Nov 24, 2015
It looked good and I needed a stocking stuffer.
Diane F on Nov 22, 2015
There's got to be a better way to bake a pie crust other than burning my fingers on the metal beaded chain! This sounds perfect.
Vera B on Nov 19, 2015
to stop bubbles

Every baker needs these!
Andrea H on Nov 11, 2015
Pouring rice or dried beans on the pie crust before cooking is so wasteful. Hopefully this will work even better.
theodore s on Nov 11, 2015
Am anxious to try it!

Alot more convenient than using dried beans!

This one-piece pie weight seems easier to use than ceramic beads.
Joan K on Oct 27, 2015
I saw this in a magazine.
Vera Jean S on Oct 27, 2015
I have used baking "beads" in the past when par-baking. What a pain retrieving and washing them. This makes much more sense.
GAYLE G on Oct 26, 2015
Tired of using beans!
Elaine G on Oct 23, 2015
Wanted to ditch the beans!
Dianne B on Oct 21, 2015
I've started making pies that require a pre-baked shell and it seems like pie weights are more of a hassle than this product. We'll see.
Corinne H on Oct 12, 2015
It looks a lot easier to use than regular pie weights.
Michelle D on Sep 26, 2015
I love to bake for the holidays but I've used cans or the "bean" method to pre-bake my pieshell. This will be easier and more convenient.
Catherine R on Sep 23, 2015
looks likely; other reviewers made it seem worthwhile.
cathy b on Sep 21, 2015
registrant asked for it

Professional baker - more convenient and sanitary than weights for rapid production. Also has ventilation for a crispy bottom.
