A neat PIE DISH with bevelled rim,
This review is from: Le Creuset Stoneware Try Me Pie Dish, Volcanic, 19 Cm (Kitchen & Home)TRY ME SIZE of STONEWARE Pie Dish, from Le Creuset's Patisserie Range, with a possible added bonus........a complimentary 'Pie Bird Funnel' (to 31/12/2010, or whilst stocks last!)
Having purchased at the current great price (a third off RRP), was also delighted to find a voucher to send off for a neat little stoneware 'Pie Bird Funnel', which stands 9cm high, to use when baking a pie with a pastry lid!
Choice of colours offered - proof of purchase and barcode required:-
'For a limited time only, when you buy a 19 cm pie dish, you will receive a redemption form with the dish which will enable you to redeem your free matching pie bird. Offer available while stocks last. Available to residents of UK & Ireland only. Available from all good cookshops, independent department stores, online stockists, Le Creuset outlets and Brand stores.'
This useful 'gadget' promises to:-
* Support the pastry crust to avoid sagging
* Steam-vented for dry crisp pastry
* Avoids leaks from pie filling
* Produces great cooking results
Anyway.....getting back to the details of this smart and sturdy STONEWARE pie-dish.
Approximate external measurements, based on my own dish:-
15.5 cm diameter gently flaring out to 22 cm diameter at the bevelled rim.
Approximate overall depth - 4.5 cm
Packed in a cardboard sleeve which has the use/care instructions on one side, but one needs to be careful when pulling off the redemption voucher (if applicable) as it is stuck to the cardboard for safe keeping!
However, these days, full use/care instructions are included in the Amazon details, above, if you do have a problem.
On the reverse of the cardboard sleeve is a recipe, in this case:-
'Apple and Raspberry Pie with Hazelnut Crust',
and I am looking forward to attempting this in the near future and serving it with one of the recommended accompaniments, most likely vanilla ice cream - our local variety!
In the meantime, I have already made an apple pie which served four comfortably.
I did need to fill the empty dish with hot, soapy water and give it a quick rub with a plastic brush inside and out and especially around the rim to shift the more stubborn bits of toffee apple glaze, but this was easy.......then off it went in the dishwasher, along with the matching custard jug, for the economy wash!
'Le Creuset' embossed on the unglazed external base, along with 0.9L/1QT
Removable sticker on the base, has '18cm Pie Dish'.
5 year guarantee.
Oven/Microwave/Grill/Freezer/Dishwasher safe, but as with all Le Creuset STONEWARE dishes, cannot be used on a direct heat source.
This size is currently obtainable in the usual Le Creuset STONEWARE colours ahead of the launch of the 24 cm, which will also be available in the dashing NEW COLOUR of CASSIS!
