Has anyone got a deep-filled pie maker?

Postby Stravaig » Fri Feb 19, 2021 12:44 pm

You know the type of thing - like a toastie-making or panini machine but it makes deep-filled little pies.

I fancy getting one but most models I've looked at have a number of very poor reviews. Sometimes people give poor reviews because the thing didn't work well for them. Perhaps they're not very good cooks. But it didn't fill me with confidence.

Another thing is that the two models I liked the look of most have since been discontinued (that kinda tells me something) or are otherwise unavailable.

I don't want to buy one and then be disappointed with it as it would be extremely difficult for me to return it.

Has anyone here ever used one and if so what did you think of it?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Stravaig, my mum bought one a few years ago. I will enquire for you.

Somehow, I can't really see the point of a machine like this. Unless you are making loads of pies and lots of the time, would it not be easier to do it by hand?

My mum has got back to me to say she "doesn't get on with it and hasn't used it in a long time". However, she knows someone who uses one a lot. Sorry, that's no help at all!

Personally, I agree with Monika.
