Perforated base metal pie dish

nala2, Sep 27, 4:56am
I tried to buy a old fashioned metal pie dish with non scalloped sides today but could only find ones with perforated bases. I could see the possible benefits of the holes but as I was going to use filo I was not sure. Anybody used them and is there a difference in performance!

Themetal pie dishes I bought recently have small perforations in the bases and I have been very satisfied with them. I don't think there would be a problem with using filo.

Thanks for that.
Ialways thought (could be wrong) that the base should be a dull not shiny finish and metal to put an even temperature along the bottom to brown and cook evenly. just wondered how the holes would effect even heat distribution.

When I bake pies I always put an oven tray in to heat when I preheat the oven and sit the pie on it to cook. As I said I haven't had any problems and the bases of my pies are well cooked and browned.
