Only complaint: the manufacturer's claim that "packaging can be used for storage" is absurd. The plastic packaging might be re-usable for some purpose, but it's virtually impossible to get the beads back into the package without spilling. I use a ball jar.
They worked best when i took a sheet of parchment paper, crumpled it up into a softball size wad, than loosely pulled it open and settled it on to the pie crust. Scatter the weights around in the paper. Somehow the tension between the crumples and the weights were effective....much more so than laying a flat piece of parchment in the shell. With the flat parchment, (or tin foil, I tried both) I found it left the bottom a bit greasy, and the one box wasn't enough to suppress all the bubbles. Do not use the weights without any liner in the crust...you'll have a real fun time like i did picking them out of the crust at the end!
Yes, they were dusty, I just rinsed them off. I've rinsed and dried them each use with no issues. The box isn't great, but I'm careful with it, it will last for a while. It just has to sit on a shelf, it's not like I'm playing foot ball with it.
In the end, I am going to buy another box, because even with this crumpled paper method, I feel the quantity is a bit skimpy, but it's not completely necessary.
America's Test Kitchen uses these pie weights, or something so similar I can't tell the difference, for pre-baked pie crusts. They suggest laying a piece of parchment paper in the bottom and then adding 2 cups, which is 2 containers, of pie weights. Bake the crust at 375 for 25 minutes, remove weights and parchment paper, and bake an additional 10-15 minutes. The addition of parchment paper keeps the weights from sticking to the crust and serves as a container to remove them.
The box the weights came in is heavy plastic, as thick as the disposable food storage containers, so I don't think it's flimsy and it stays closed for me. I must say, the packaging they show for the product is totally different than what I received so maybe they have changed it and need to update their pictures.

So... I got these for my gf, to put in some of her lotions bottles, as a mixing weight. They're food grade, don't absorb anything, and don't rust, so they're worked great.Published 8 days ago by WB

Love these beads, but you really do need two to three containers. I use two on a 10" quiche pan.Published 14 days ago by Sarah Summers
Great weight and fill the entire bottom of the dish. I may order another so the pie doesn't slide down the sides still. Shipping was fast.Published 17 days ago by Matthew M. Lowrie
Perhaps I should have used parchment paper. Weights stick to pie crust. Threw them out after a pie crust disaster. Will continue to use pinto beans as weights.Published 18 days ago by Kristin
