Pie Shield Silicone Baking Tool
Ensure perfectly crisp pies every time with this Pie Shield Silicone Baking Tool! It is a must-have in the kitchen for those who love to bake! Pies are one of the most popular foods to bake because of how easy it is to make and how delicious it is. The only challenge is making sure that the crust doesn’t overcook. One common problem is that the crust burns way before the fillings of the pie do. This is because the crust is closest to the heat and so, in just minutes, it can overcook easily.
The main purpose if a pie shield is to cover the edges of the pie. This way, it can still cook through without receiving direct heat from the oven. This baking tool has a round shape which means that you will have to position it on the outer crust of the pie. The good thing is that it has an adjustable size so it can fit many different sizes of pie baking pans. For smaller pies, you simply have to make a smaller circle by pulling the pie shield tighter. It has a lock so it can stay like that during the baking process.
There’s no need to worry because this tool is of food-grade silicone material. It is safe for the oven and it is reusable too. The good thing about silicone is that it is not only flexible but also has a smooth surface. With that, food particles can’t stick easily on it so you can clean it conveniently later on. It has open design since it only covers the outer edges of the pie. With that, it can still cook thoroughly in the middle while keeping the crust perfectly crisp. Finally, it is dishwasher-safe for your convenience when cleaning it.
