Sunbeam Pie Magic

We had nothing to get so parents got this machine. Anyone tried it? We found that it does make pies in under 10mins but the pastry doesn't really puff up compared to say the oven.

Make the bottoms out of plain pastry & the tops out of flakey pastry, they turn out great.

As miffycat said use shortcrust pastry for the base and flaky pastry for the tops, you will find it gives a better result.

how can pastry puff up when there is a top. pastry needs room to expand. the lids stops this.
why use a machine any way,, my local mini market has pies for $1 . slightly bigger than big ben pies.

I gave my machine away. Too much faffing about for tiny "pies" with oversized hats.

i dont bother making a top i just use a bigger bit of pastry and fold it over the top and trim any double bits off i love mine a good way to use up left overs

Me too. Any left overs go into toasties, much more yummo.
