9-inch Pro Nonstick Pie Pan (TN3925) with a free pie shield (TN3277) and instructions for baking the perfect pie

New 9-inch Pro Nonstick Pie Pan (TN3925) with a free pie shield (TN3277) and instructions for baking the perfect pie

This set includes both a professional pie pan and a Perfect Pie Crust Shield (TN3277 (One Piece):

  • Certified Professional Grade heavy duty 9-inch pan
  • Superior nonstick surface
  • Handles for easy of removal from the oven without getting into the filling or meringue
  • An aluminum pie crust shield to reflect heat and protect the crust
  • The pie crust shield breaks down for easy storage in the kitchen
  • If you want to bake a perfect pie every time, use a nonstick dark pan.

    See why a dark pan is so important?

    Fruit and other pies are dense. It takes a lot of heat to bake through. Light colored pans reflect heat while dark pans absorb heat.

    You want your pie crust to be completely baked, crispy, not soft--no "soggy bottoms". That's difficult when you have light colored pans. It's tough to drive heat through a pie from the top.

    Avoid soggy bottoms. Use a dark pan--and a pie crust shield.

    So what's the role of a pie crust shield?

    A pie crust shield does two things:

    First, it protects the top edge of the crust, the edge that is exposed to all of the heat from the top and the bottom.

    A pie crust shield is a ring that covers the top edge of the pie to reflect the heat. It keeps the edge from getting too baked.

    The other thing the shield does is that it allows you to bake the pie longer and that helps solve the soggy bottom problem. It bakes longer so the bottom of the pie is baked longer.

    Often home bakers will put tin foil over the top edge to try to protect it. A pie shield works better and you don’t have pieces of tin foil falling into your pumpkin pie.

    Other Things You Should Know

    Prebaked Pie Shells

    For strawberry pies and cream pies, you pre-bake the shell. For most others, you bake the filling in the shell. Pre-baking usually takes about 15 minutes at a fairly high heat—follow the recipe directions.

    Removing the Pie from the Pan

    If you spend much time with our emails or on our site, you'll notice that many of our pies are removed from the pan before they are sliced--the nonstick finish is that good. There are several advantages:
  • The presentation is much nicer. Slide the pie from the pan onto a cutting board or serving plate.
  • The pieces are much more attractive. You get clean cuts on flat surface on a cutting board and you don't break up the slice digging it from a pan.
  • You never scratch your fine bakeware because you never touch it with a knife.
  • To remove a pie from the pan, let it cool completely. Then gently twist the pie to make sure there are no sticky points.

    Do not try to lift the pie from the pan. Simply tip the pie up on a gentle angle slide the pie out.

    This reason alone is reason enough to own a set of these pans.
