How To Choose The Right Pie Pan

Do you know what a perfectly baked pie should look like? Well, the answer to this is when you bake your pie with the right composition and measurement to make the dough using the right pan, you will be 100% guaranteed to get a pretty looking perfectly cooked tasty brown crunchy crusty pie. As a food blogger I would love to share my secrets and experience of a perfectly baked pie using the right pan. Keep in mind the more your practice the better are your results. Most pie pans come with a size that is 9 inches in diameter and 1-1/4inches deep in a round-circular shape. These pans come in many materials like ceramic, Pyrex glass, and metal. In my article I will be sharing with you the right pan you need without wasting tons of money or feeling frustrated for achieving a perfectly baked pie.

How to choose the right pie pan:

Choosing the good pie pan is very essential for a perfectly cooked pie. When we talk about metal pans I recommend you use an aluminum pan which is great for baking pies when it doesn’t have any filling or needs to be partially done. If you are making a long batch of pies during a house party you can get the aluminum disposable pans. The good thing about aluminum pans is that they can heat and cool faster than others. The only issue with them is they are not scratch resistant to sharp objects while getting the pie from the pan.

If you wish to have a decorative and appreciable utensil then you should opt for a ceramic pan. They are a great option while serving the pie to your guests at the dinner table. They are also temperature-friendly, if you want to freeze your pie before it goes into the oven, the ceramic pans are the best option as it can resist the switch in temperature. However, the issue with them is not just with the price but also they can give you under-cooked uneven pie.

Now, coming to my all-time favorite dish is the glass pans. Glass pans are great in terms of affordability. They are cheap but do their job perfectly. It is recommended you get a glass pan with small handles which will help you rotate and remove the pie from the oven. With glass pans you may have to use your patience to wait to get a perfectly cooked and perfectly browned crusty pie. Another, thing I love about using glass pans is it is easy to see from the bottom of the pan to check the doneness of the pie. However, be extra careful while holding the pan, as glass is not slip-proof.


Please don’t forget to wear oven gloves before putting your hand inside the oven.
