They smell disgusting
After I used the pie weights for the first time, I hand washed them and air-dried them before putting them back in the jar. When I took them out a few months later to use again, they smelled DISGUSTING. Like a combination of mildew and wet ceramic. I hand-washed them again and even put them in a laundry bag and put it in the dishwasher (top rack) but the smell won't go away...

Beats using beans
I use mine frequently over crumbled parchment paper but have never washed them (since they don't touch anything but paper) and bought more for gifts - so handy. Were I to wash them, not likely, but would dry them on Silpat in oven.

Easy as pie
These work.
They do the job.
Easy clean up, I just soak mine.
Then leave out to dry.
Handy item in kitchen.

Love these
My mom used these and now I have them from my wedding registry. Love them. Just be careful not to drop them when putting them away because they'll get lost.

Joann s on Feb 20, 2017
During the holidays, had a good pie crust shrink to unusable shape even though I was using beans as a pie weight. Don't want to waste time and money ever again and these should last me a long time.

MARGARET S on Jan 4, 2017
I've been blind baking pie shells more frequently â?? using dry beans to hold the shape or nothing at all and hoping for the best. These weights have been on my list for quite some time, but they just kept slipping my mind.

I didn't get my first set of pie weights til I was 55. I used pennies (not always successfully). The bride is much more professional!
Ellen K on Oct 26, 2016
Gift, though concerned about smell people mentioned, I don't know why they would need to be washed, maybe just pour boiling water on them? Seems
Ike directions here could be better

Recommended by a baking cookbook.
Kathryn W on Aug 27, 2016
Just signed up for your online Pie Crust Baking Class and decided to graduate from beans to true ceramic pie crust weights. Avoids adding a non-pie scent in your kitchen!
Bonnie W S on Aug 16, 2016
I'm tired of wasting good beans and it's time to splurge on the good weights :)

I love the string of metal beads for blind baking pie crusts, but I will use theses for tarts.
Carole P on Mar 18, 2016
I don't always have dried beans to spread on crusts for baking
Colleen C on Feb 14, 2016
To help on my pies preparation
Roberto F on Feb 12, 2016
Needed some pie weights and I love the idea that these are separate ceramic balls that I can use to make tarts - I don't have to deal with the long strands of the metal chain I've found in other kitchen stores
Lita S on Jan 21, 2016
This is what I was looking for and decided to give it a try.
Charisse R on Dec 26, 2015
I needed some pie weights and have for a while. I read a not-so-great review, but it sounds like this could just be that the weights weren't dried thoroughly.

Are these made in China?
A shopper on Nov 20, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Pie weights work better to keep pastry from shrinking or forming bubbles while it bakes. These ceramic weights do a superb job of holding the pastry shell in place during baking and cooling. Wwashable, reusable weights are conveniently packaged in an attractive glass storage jar. Hand wash and air dry. These are made in Taiwan and held to the highest standards of quality and safety
Are there enough weights to stack up the sides high enough to keep the sides of the pie shell from slipping down?
Karen M R on Dec 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, there should be enough to stack them if need be.
How many weights are in a jar? I want to use for individual tarts and need to know how many per jar to calculate the number of jars needed. Thanks.
Stephanie S on Dec 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This jar has approximately 400 weights in it.
When using pie weights when do I remove them?
A shopper on Dec 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You can remove the pie weights after the pie crust is fully baked before adding the filling. You can either let them cool before removing them or take them out as soon as the crust comes out of the oven.
How do you clean these?
A shopper on Dec 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I rinsed them in a colander and air dried them before putting them back in the container
how many pie shells are they good for?
A shopper on Feb 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You might be able to use them with two smaller-sized shells or one larger one, if I understand your question correctly. They need to cover the bottom fairly solidly to be effective.
