Chicago Metallic Pie Weight for Blind Baking Pastry

Product number: 32652

Ceramic baking beans are brilliant for blind baking pastry, but Chicago Metallic’s Pie Weight is a fantastic alternative if you find pouring beans in and removing them a bit too time-consuming and fiddly. It works just as well too.

Made from perforated steel, the metal disc conducts heat to crisp up your pastry as it cooks, while the little holes let moisture escape and prevent any sogginess, and its weight stops your pastry from bubbling up away from the base of your tin.

Designed to fit most standard pie dishes, the silicone ‘fins’ round the edge make it a great one-size-fits-all design, as they’ll shape to the inside of your tin, especially if it’s got a curved base. And the silicone rim round the edge of the metal disc makes it really easy to place inside your tin and remove it – so there’ll be no more chasing the last hot little baking bean round and round your tin when you’re done!

Oven-safe up to 230˚C.

Free from BPA.

"Metallic pie weight"

star star star star star

Great product no more messing about with baking beans

"Easy peasy"

star star star star star

I was sceptical but found it so simple and quick to use ( no faffing with beans )

"Measure your tins first"

star star star star_border star_border

I bought this, it's tiny, won't fit any of my quiche tins - I should have measured them first but I expected it to be average size.

"Brilliant"

star star star star star

This is a perfect idea for blind baking much easier than the baking beads no messing trying to catch them all when pouring back into a jar

"Almost does the job"

star star star star_border star_border

Bought instore few weeks ago. Thought it sounded a good idea. Tried out today in a 9" across pie tin. Packaging says accomodates 9-11" pie pans. The unit did not fold up the sides as in picture so parts of pastry fell inwards on initial bake before removal. Could be a good idea to use smaller than a 9" pie tin to allow exterior silicone to bend up. Also make sure you only touch the plastic knob as metal can be easily brushed with fingers.
