Product Description

Style Name: Ceramic Pie Weights

Product Description

Pie weights are used to prevent pie shells from blistering and shrinking while they bake. Mrs. Anderson's pie weights are ceramic, they conduct heat evenly and are also easy to clean after baking! For added convenience, the packaging becomes a storage container for the weights. For a great pie shell, these are a great value.

Amazon.com

This packet of reusable pie weights contains plenty of pea-size ceramic beads to cover the bottom of an unfilled piecrust, preventing the shrinking that can occur while baking. To use, press the crust into the pan, prick with a fork, line with aluminum foil or wax paper, and fill with pie weights. Bake according to crust recipe, cool, and then remove the liner and pour the weights into a colander to continue cooling. Wash the weights, and then store them in their original plastic container or in a jar. --Jennifer Harris

The pie weights work well -- either because of ceramic properties or the fact they simply weigh more, but a smaller amount does the job of holding the crust in place and the result seems to be that the crust bakes more evenly. (When I used dry beans, the bottom of the crust always seemed to lag behind in the baking.)

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.

So, since I'm experimenting with cream pies these days, I was excited at the prospect of ceramic pie weights. Here's what I've found for these.
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.

Yes, they did seem dusty but you just rinse the pie weights and the box they come in and you're all set.

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.

I have used these pie weights two times now and have found them to be quite effective. I was a bit apprehensive b/c I had read a review saying that they did not cover a 9 inch pie pan. I have used these weights on two different 9 inch pie pans and have found them to provide good coverage. One pie pan was a glass pyrex 9 inch and the other was a hand made ceramic type. The ceramic pan, although stated to be 9 inch seemed to have a wider footprint, with steeper sides, than the pyrex. I put the rolled out pie dough in my pie pan, covered it with aluminum foil, and then put the pie weights in the foil (as recommended by my Martha Stewart recipe). In both instances, my crust came out evenly baked and flat. A good buy for the money and if you qualify for the free super shipping, even better!

A few caveats to earlier reviews:
1. These weights would store just fine in the box. They won't last forever, but it'll certainly last for a few years with some care. And anyway, put 'me in a mason jar and let the concern go out the window...
2. You do not need more than one container for a standard 9" pie crust - there are plenty here to cover nicely and do the deed.
3. Yes, there is some ceramic powder in the box when they arrive; the question is so what, or maybe whataya care? The product is fine and dandy! Rinse and dry 'em and go to town!

OK, that said, lemme say this: I've used beans forever, and these rock, they're great, they ARE a better mousetrap! The heat-sink qualities of ceramic are a plus, the shape is perfect and they do a bang up job when blind baking. Well worth your money!

I bought these to replace the jar of dried beans that I had been using. The beans were starting to get hard to wash and stayed just a bit greasy. I was concerned about the oil becoming rancid and affecting the taste of the pies. The ceramic seem to be heavier than the beans and may work a bit better. Dropped to 3 stars because the packaging was poorly done. I ordered 2 sets and both of them had broken open in transit and where rolling around inside the box when I got it. Who knows if any "escaped".

These worked exceptionally well and are now a staple in my baking experiences. It's important to rinse these thoroughly before the first use - they're pretty dusty. Also, get a different container for storage. The package is useless for storage, unless you're putting them in a bag first.

They are what they are and I'm sure they will work fine but order at least THREE if you plan to bake a 9" pie crust. One package barely covers the bottom crust, and doesn't come close to touching the sides! There is supposed to be one pound but there is only 10 ounces in the package! Last I checked, a pound was supposed to be 16 ounces. If I had known it was only slightly more than half as much as it claimed, I would have ordered something else!
