Not something I have bought but my brother and his wife bought me a pie maker for Christmas.

Now I'm not a great pastry fan but I think this could be a winner. I don't think I'll use to make pies from scratch but I reckon it'll be good to use up leftovers. I won't be making my own pastry, that really negates the speediness of it. Jus Roll do a good range of pre-rolled pastry big_laugh 

I'll let you know how I get on.

Hmmm, Well yes, PIE was my nickname from early childhood for many years. HATED it then and I HATE it now. About 15 years ago I finally convinced people not to use it and that includes my mother. 

 

Some of my childhood peers used to use it whilst  bullying me so no surprise I objected to it what_the_heck

Whoever said, "Sticks of stones will break my bones, but names will never hurt me", must have have led a very cosy and  sheltered perfect life.#

 

However I am a simple fellow, who enjoys simple pleasures, who just wants a simple life big_hug

Looks nice and simple, and makes portion controlled pies for those dieting to.

 Are we having fun yet? I am!

Do you ever get worried about filling up the kitchen with gadgets that have only one use?

(Says the woman who owns a "tea cake baker" and a "cake pop baker")

My kitchen is decent size, but you start buying one use gadgets and it fills up pretty quick…ponder

If you can't be a shining example, be a terrible warning!

Well my latest new  gadget arrived today.

 

I have bought the Superfast Thermapen from these people I bought mine an Amazon so got if for a couple of pounds cheaper.

 

It is awesome. When they say it will produce an initial read in less than 3 seconds  it really does. It takes a few more seconds to 'hone' in on the actual temp but the initial display is within a couple  of degrees.

OOh, envy! That's the sort they use and recommend on America's Test Kitchen, and I like the look of them. I do have one that has a probe that sits in the meat - pretty much necessary with my unpredictable fan oven, but it was a great deal cheaper - came from Lidl.

Another thing that comes under the heading of "Don't need, but do want"

Dunno about that but it will ensure the washing up water is hot enough
