No more puffy bases or shrinking,
This review is from: Tala 700g Ceramic Baking Beans (Kitchen & Home)It took me a while to invest in proper pie weights as I was slightly sceptical that they work any better than dried beans but I'm glad I did. These pie weights do exactly what they are designed for - stop the pie crust and base from shrinking or puffing. I have found that these offer adequate cover for a 9" tin as others have stated. They do tend to stay very warm for a while after being removed from the oven so I leave them to cool for about 30 minutes before putting back in the plastic pot.
If you do a lot of pastry baking I would definitely recommend investing in these pie weights.
