Pie Plate Recommendations?

Levaeria Jun 14, 2011 01:15 PM

I’m purchasing a new pie plate later today and I wanted to get some advice on the ones I’m considering (or ones I should be considering.) I make most of my purchases online, which I believe some people disagree with, but that’s just how it works in my household right now.

I’m considering these three:

http://www.amazon.com/Sante-Cabin-Kitchen-Cast-Iron/dp/B000OXAQ6G/ref=sr_1_1?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1308081529&sr=1-1

And this set if I can’t choose between those three:

My favorite is the stone one, but I wanted to get some opinions first. I bought a Pyrex one about a month ago and it exploded in the oven. It was only after that happened that I read the threads on the subject here.

From what I’ve read, many love their Emilie Henry pie plates, but I’m really not looking to spend that price right now.

Any advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. :)

    Well I was going to suggest the Emile Henry, I've been very happy with their products.

      Perhaps I should just spend the extra money and get one... If they're everyone's favorite, I guess I can't argue. :)

      My Mother made the very best pies, bar none. Crisp, flakey crust, always just perfict, always. She never had an expensive pie plate. She used a lot of Pyrex, the old stuff, and some stoneware, the only thing I never saw her cook a pie curst in was metal, with the exception of a grahm cracker crust. Emilie Henry I'm certian is a high quality pie plate, but it likely isn't necessary to get a good pie.

        I picked up a LeCreuset pie plate at Home Goods for about $7 or $8 that I like a lot -
