Wolfgang Puck's Mini Pie Maker

Started 1322939318.84 in Kitchen & Food Talk | Last reply 1327895324.113 by Geniebeanie

For those of you who were "on-the-fence" over the

Emeril Pie-Maker (4 pies) for $50,

Wolfgang Puck has introduced his 2 pie-maker, $25.

The difference is that the WP pie maker makes 2 'deep' pies as opposed to 4 pies on the Breville and Emeril pie maker. The price is better, too. All three are probably made in the same Chinese factory.

Yes this is a great price, i ordered one- maybe i can make my own little pies instead of buying them frozen at Grocery store.{#emotions_dlg.biggrin}

OMG looks like another rummage sale item. I don't get HSN on my cable but is this for those who don't want to use their oven?

My daughter wants this for Xmas. I thought she was joking in the beginning, but she really wants it. Last year it was a stand mixer. She's 18 an likes to play around in the kitchen.

This reminds me of the appliance the Q used to sell years ago where you put the bread in with a filling and it cooked it, sealed and trimmed the crust.....Anyone else remember this? I forgot what they called it. I bought it and never used it. Don't know whatever happened to it.....

Hi, Ripley!!! {#emotions_dlg.biggrin} Haven't seen you around in a while. I know just what you're thinking of. That info-mercial lady used to present it - Kathy Mitchell or something like that. I also bought one and can't tell you whatever happened to it.

I didn't watch the video but I remember looking at a presentation a month or so ago on the other one, and when he showed the finished product, the pie crusts weren't cooked in the middle. They all looked raw and doughy in the center and that killed the deal for me.

The WP molds really are deeper, after having checked the videos.

My intent is to try the Bisquick "Impossibly Easy" pie recipes in there... {#emotions_dlg.biggrin}

Every WP product that I have bought is junk. I had a rice cooker burn out the first time I used it. I bought a pressure cooker the lid fell apart in 2 months. I bought his cookware as a gift and it was cheaply made. I sent it back, it cost me $22. to return. Sorry but I don't buy anything from him.

Yes most appliances are made in China, but there is still a quality standard for each brand. I don't think WP cares. Just my opinion and experence.

Many of the WP electrical appliances have terrible reviews. If you're lucky, they just stop working, if you're not, they catch fire. I have the Emeril pie maker and I like it- I think I have seen them cheaper at Macy's, though.

honestly, i have several wolfgang puck appliances and serving pieces and i love them. they work well for me and have never failed. my favorite is my rice cooker. i want this pie maker! i was watching them last night and everything looked so good..... fruit pies, bread pudding, turkey pot pies, fritattas, and shephards pie.

not sure where you are seeing overall "horrible reviews" on wolfgang puck items.... most of them are either customer picks OR they have a 3.5 or better rating.

I agree with sunshine, I have several WP appliances and love them all. They have yet to let me down.

Seems like it would be good for Piroshski, and vegetable pies. Or like Cornish pies? I don't eat meat, but a pot pie would be in order if I did.{#emotions_dlg.laugh}

That's what I was thinking too. Looks like the outside gets pretty burned up and the stuff inside not so much.

I was watching something earlier that he had on that was making foam out of milk or something like that. It was leaking like a sieve while it was being operated. Those close-ups will get ya. heh

Bippity boppity BOOYAH!

Thanks Chuckr.... another gadget I had to have!{#emotions_dlg.sneaky} I am excited about this one because it is deep. I love chicken pot pies and I buy the Mrs Calendar ones.

I am going to try and make my own with this machine, for me the bottom crust on a chicken pot pie is just as important as the top crust. I will buy my roasted chicken at Costco and give this a whirl. I have a free s/h code from playing the hsn game, so I will save a few bucks there.

I love his versacooker, and use it all the time, and have now for over a year, with nothing but great results.....I have decided I am not so much of a fan of the rice cooker, but would replace the versacooker tomorrow if it went out today{#emotions_dlg.laugh}

I already have the Emeril, and I was bummed when I saw the WP one. I do like that it is deeper. However, I'm going to wait. Just wait, next year they will come out with one that makes 4 at a time.

That's been my experience as well with WP products.

Mine arrived today after ordering it Sunday evening.

That's pretty quick. They were 'sold out' on Wednesday.

The enclosed booklet has some recipes in it,

and they suggest regular pie dough for the bottoms,

and puff pastry for the top.

They suggest that you power it up empty, until up-to-temp,

then apply vegetable oil to internal surfaces and wipe up excess.

Seems like its gonna be lots of fun... {#emotions_dlg.biggrin}

I just received my WP pie maker but wish there were more recipes. I have alot of his cookware and love it and also a rice cooker that I have used for over 5 years that works great. Any one know of any other recipes for the WP pie maker, looking for some good breakfast ideas.

Easy pie? That's all I need.

Sold out. I would love a deep dish pie maker. I have one that makes four mini pies and really like using it.

Chuckr1327257479.251162 PostsRegistered 1/2/2008Denver area

FWIW,

QVC has a 4 pie model, appears to be the 'deep-dish' type.

Seems to have decent reviews:

I gifted the WP pastry maker to a friend who lives in NY (meaning tiny kitchen, little time and still needs healthy meals). She has used it since she received it with success actually using Pillsburry Grands as the dough. While I prefer purchasing goods made in the USA, being made in China is the currently the norm. I own three WP products and they have served my family well for years.
