I bought the following Borosilicate Pie Pan at a discount and the reason I took advantage of the discount is because I love trying new kitchen products and I wanted the chance to use it and review it. I’m very pleased with it’s performance so far. The pie dish is a nice big size and I do want to mention that it takes a little more to fill it than it would a deep dish pie. I’m going to double my next pie recipe and freeze what’s left. The same with my pie crust. It doesn’t quite reach the outer rim but that’s okay because it gives me a good place to grip and carry the pie dish.
This pie dish is really sturdy. I’m kind of familiar with Borolux glass and kind of not. I know it’s a really good glass because I’ve never broken anything made of it. My pie dish has had plenty of chances to shatter. I live in a small apartment and the kids have been out of school for summer break. I’ve had it sitting on my table waiting to use it, and they’ve moved it, banged it, clanged it and done everything to it that could possibly be done but it’s been a real trooper and stood it’s ground.
The crust appears to cook evenly on the top and the bottom and it really makes a nice family size pie. I have put it in the freezer and oven but have not used it in the microwave yet. I’m not big on using my microwave as it’s really too tiny to do much in anyways. I could put a couple of these on each of my shelves in my oven, as they are not overly big, just bigger than the deep dish 9 inch pie plates that I’ve used in the past. They fit easily on the bottom shelf in my freezer and can fit anywhere in my fridge. It’s easy to store as I put some bowls in it on my shelves and it doesn’t take up any room that way.
Making family size pies are easy now with the the nice big 9.5 inch size.
After having such a positive experience with my pie dish, I’m ready to try some of the other Borolux dishes I’ve seen on Amazon. How about you? What would be the first pie you make with your own Shatter-Proof Borosilicate Pie Pan?
