So how does Choice rate the new pie maker?
"This pie maker didn't perform as well as Kmart's original four-pie maker. Because you're making one larger pie as opposed to four smaller ones, it just doesn't cook as well, particularly across the base of the pie," says Choice kitchen expert Fiona Mair.
"The machine didn't seal the pie well and you end up with quite a messy finish rather than a neat decorative edge that you get with the individual pie maker," says Fiona.
The pie maker is also left wanting in terms of size.
"It's also a bit of a stretch to say this size would feed a family – I'd say the serving size is much more suited to three people, although perhaps only two if you have a large appetite," says Fiona. "It's not really any bigger than cooking four individual pies."
Final verdict? It’s great value for $29 but you’re better off sticking with your oven if you want to make a larger pie.
