Finally, the Deliciousness of Pie Comes to the Proximity of My Desk

Posted By on Mon, Nov 15, 2010 at 4:05 PM

One of the worst things about having to go to a job everyday and sit at a desk is that you can't just make yourself a pie when the mood strikes.

One of the worst things about pie is that you can't just magically have a pie when you want one. Making a pie requires effort ... OR DOES IT?

Enter the Breville Pie Maker, sold by Williams Sonoma. Sure, you could spend $80 on a number of things that would bring you a spark of momentary joy, but would you be able to make up to four individual pies in around 10 minutes? No, I don't suspect you would.

Please note that the Breville Pie Maker features cool touch handles, so if it were on my desk, and I were making four individually sized cherry pies, I would not necessarily burn myself if I bumped my elbow into the device while it was working. This would be an improvement over the regrettable George Foreman Grill incident of 1999, about which I will answer no follow up questions.

Of course, nothingcan ever be perfect, and one of the reviews on the Williams-Sonoma site mentions that the pie-maker isn't great with savory fillings, but that might be due to user incompetence. Looking at the Breville Pie Maker, I can tell it has good dessert intentions.

I've cleared out a space on my desk for you, Pie Maker. I look forward to our glorious introductory meeting.
