This Is the $6 Pie Dish You Need for Pie Week
Bake along with the Food Network Kitchen app this week with our best overall pie dish!
Just in time for Pi Day on Saturday, the Food Network Kitchen app’s month-long baking extravaganza is heading into a whole week dedicated to flaky crust and decadent fillings — and we want your kitchen to be ready! While pie week’s class schedule includes multiple variations of the dish (think spinach pie, pie crust hacks and pot pies), there will also be plenty of traditional recipes you can tackle alongside Food Network chefs and baking experts including Alton Brown, Carla Hall and Erin McDowell.
While you start gathering all your ingredients, we think this is a great time to also consider upgrading your pie dish to our personal favorite. In testing, we tried multiple deep-dish and single-crust dishes, and Pyrex’s 9-Inch Glass Pie Plate reigned supreme. And don’t worry about adding an expensive investment to your cart — this dish, which we loved for single-crust pies like pumpkin and pecan pie, is only $6. Dishwasher-, freezer- and microwave-safe, this pie dish from Pyrex is practically a no-brainer.
Pull it out during Dana Beninati’s Key Lime Pie with Butter Cracker Crust class, or use this dish while perfecting crust with Carla Hall. No matter which recipe you use this dish for, we think you’ll love the slow-conducting glass that made our pie crusts golden brown and evenly cooked through in testing. (Plus, having a glass dish is a huge benefit when double-checking if your pie crust is getting too brown!) For just $6, this pie dish in conjunction with a week’s worth of classes will make a pie baker out of just about anyone!
