A few weeks back, I mentioned that we’d be reviewing a product from CSN Stores. Well….after a short wait for delivery and a chance to USE the product, I am going to share about it now.
A deep dish pie plate from Calphalon!
Now, the one we got is red (and no longer available on the website.) The photo above is their stock photo of the creme brulee color that is still available at the low price of $19.95 plus shipping.
Hubby is the pie baker in the house and was still lamenting the loss of our deep dish stoneware pie dish a few years back. Those glass ones by Pyrex we picked up at our local discount store just do NOT cut it for him.
While my parents were here, he baked a scrum-deli-icous apple pie for dessert.
Overall, he likes the new pie plate. It’s still a little shallower than our previous one, but far better than the cheap glass ones we own.
The pie baked beautifully and clean up was a breeze.
CSN definitely has a wide variety of baking products available through their online store. For anyone living in the lower 48, it’s a place I’d strongly recommend checking out. The pie plate I received was well packed to prevent breakage with shredded cardboard boxes providing the cushion rather than Styrofoam peanuts or bubblewrap.
Now, the one downside for CSN is if you are shipping outside of the lower 48. Shipping charges add up quickly! It isn’t a problem unique to CSN, though. So, while I might not order much to ship up here to Alaska, I will consider using them for gifts to family members in the lower 48.
