Great buy for $20!
I bought this machine not expecting much from it at all, but it is great! I have made curried chicken, brisket, steak, chicken and corn and more pies and they taste great. I just use a basic short crust on the bottom and a puff on the top and they taste yummo - only 5-8 minutes and it is done. Easy to wipe, clean and store. Couldn’t be happier with my bargain!Show details
This has been a great handy pie maker ive bought ever. Its so versatile and easy to clean. What can i say. My kids love making runny eggs in them. And also ive made sausage and deserts. List goes on. Fb has a page with great recipes.Show details
So easy to use. Fill patties with any filling and the pie maker cooks and seals the pastry into perfect pies every time. Only takes about 8 minutes for it to cook the pastry.
Pro tip - cut your pastry in 4 squares. Place them in each hole. Fill with desired filling. Then wrap the edges up and over the top. Seals perfectly and less pastry waste
Love this machine the ideas of what can be made are endless from savoury to sweet to pizzas the only limitation is your imagination.
We have made meat pies, fruit pies, s’more pies, pizza pockets, cup cakes the list goes on and on.
It’s easy to use just plug it on and away you go our 9 year old loves to cook and this gives her the option to do this on her own (with supervision of course) to make her cup cakes.
The non stick surface has held up brilliantly and is easy to clean.Show details
Bought as more of a gimmick but I’ve used it more times than I can count! Kids love it too! Great product! A little pastry wastage and a little time consuming to clean properly but worth it!Show details
Tried tonight for 1st time. Pastry cooked beautifully, chosen recipe cooked in 7 minutes, yum. Looking forward to trying more recipes. Especially dessert and quiche recipes. Easy to clean and storeShow details
Wish I could get a refund
I guess you get what you pay for. Unfortunately I parted with some cash and I am underwhelmed with it. The apple pie recipe says 6-8 minutes, more like 15 and the pastry in top wasn’t even cooked. I’m very disappointed and wish I listened to my inner voice that said it was a waste of money.Show details
Amazing little gadget
Haven’t stopped using this since purchased. Cooks quickly, is so adaptable and cleans easily. Pies, muffins, everything turns out beautifully. Recommended it to my daughter and she loves it too!Show details
Great until it started to fall apart
I loved this pie maker and so did the kids. That was until I couldn't get a nice seam around the pies. It simply wouldn't close properly. After giving it a wipe down (ie preparing for eternal storage) I found a screw lodged in the back which prohibited the pie maker from closing. Now that I found my problem, I tried to screw it back into place but the screw just keeps going around in circles.
I've now lost the disc cutter so that is a little frustrating but otherwise it is great. The pies cook beautifully and it's a breeze to cook with and cle
MUST BUY IF YOU DON'T HAVE ONE ALREADY!
Kmart Pie makers are so quick and easy to use. They are great for when you have leftover food. All you have to do is get a piece of pastry, put it into the machine with the leftover food inside and is cooks you an awesome pie. MUST BUY IF YOU DON'T HAVE ONE ALREADY!
Great pies that are easy to make
Great sized pies and cooks them evenly and well. Has non stick surface. Does get hot and the sides discolour from the steam but I love it for its versatility (have cooked eggs, mini quiches and cupcakes in them too!) and great for small servings! Only wish it had an on-off button so I could cool it down between pies rather than turning it on/off at the PowerPoint.Show details
I dont know how I never had one before!
Its awesome, have made beef pies, chicken pies, vanilla slices, mini cob loaves! So many yummy recipes on youtube. Heats up fast and cooks beautifully. Includes a cutter to cut the pastry also which is something I never thought about. Very happy thanks Kmart!Show details
FYI if you lose the cutter, the measurements for tops and bases are 95mm Tops and 105mm Base. I couldn't find these measurements on the internet so I posted them here once the Mrs had a girl look and finally found our cutter!Show details
Not just a pie maker
Very handy, have used for sweet & savoury pies, variety of small cakes, ham & cheese scrools, mini pizza - great in hot weather as it doesn't heat up room like the oven does. Only downside is that it could be a bit deeper so you get more filling in pies.Show details
Quick and easy
Easy to use, easy to clean just needs a wipe. cooks the pies evenly and quickly.
Pies dont stick or burn. Great size pies.
Very versatile in what can be cooked - pies, quiches, desserts etc.
Questions & Answers
How do I get the crimping on rhe edge of the pies please? Do the covers of the pies have to overlap the bases? My pies don't get the crimped edges. Tks
Just checking, are you using the provided cutter to do the base and top cuttings?
I find the top cover cut piece is enough to cover into the edge of the grooves - I will sometimes give it a gentle push in and then the crimp happens itself.
Also possible that you may not be filling your pies enough?
There shouldn’t be anything extra you have to do to get the crimped edges
Tku Stephen...much Appreciated...ge pie makerxwas sold to me privately without the cutters ...hence the problem I suppose. I'm told I can get them from kmart etc.
Hi Judi, please do see link for more information- https://www.kmart.com.au/wcsstore/Kmart/pdfs/42888604_Manual.pdf
I have lost the pie-cutter for the ANKO pie maker (KP2838-FP). Can anyone tell me the diameter of the smaller and larger circles for the cutter?
Small circle - 9.5cm
Large circle - 11cm
I don’t bother with that anymore. I cut the pastry into 4 squares. Put each square into the holes. Fill it with your filling then wrap the sides up and over it. Works every time and less pastry waste that way
Thank you very much for your help on this. I will try your suggestion
Im happy to post mine to u. I dont use it. U could email me for privacy and im happy to post i live near a post office.
