Perfect Pastry Crisper
Eve Pearce, of Wokingham, Berkshire, had given up hope of replacing her beloved flan tin. “The holes in the removable base make blind baking unnecessary,” she told us, adding, “it seems to be the only one in the world.”
Happily, our Buying Team sleuths have tracked down this coveted item – a loose based, ventilated tin that allows heat to get straight to the pastry, giving a beautifully crisp base to home-made quiches, tarts and flans.
A triple coating of non-stick ensures effortless food release.

Excellent the product works” by Mrs Gillian Widdicombe
I have just ordered another one, I purchased this sometime ago and put it away and forgot about it. When cleaning out the tins cupboard I found the pastry crisper and decided to test it making a treacle tart. Turned out beautiful. I would recommend this product.
DEEPER SIDES PLEASE” by Patt
I have had two of these for some time and the perforated base works wonders, BUT please could we have one with slightly deeper sides - say 1½ inches, especially useful for savoury flans!
A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. I've passed on your suggestion for a deeper sided crisper.
Not Quite (but nearly) Perfect” by Valerie
This is a good idea and it does help the base to cook through but the metal is so thin. If you take the ring off near the end of the cooking the base bends and it's easy to buckle the flan. I thought of putting it back in the oven on a baking tray but that rather defeats having holes in the base, I suppose.
I'm afraid I've got used to the vastly superior quality of the "My Kitchen" range and I won't stray away from it again.
