Do you make a great pie? I need your opinion please.

It's time for a new pie dish. I'm using a rusty metal pan from Nick's deceased grandma, whom I adored, so I hung on. But seriously, I need to move on.

I purchased a stoneware dish from Wegmans that I liked in theory, but it was way too deep dish - it was more like a casserole at 3 inches deep. It's going back. It was an awesome deal though, and I now realize that I'm not going to find Portuguese stoneware for $13 anywhere else.

Regardless, I'm willing to pay a certain amount for a nice pie dish. There seem to be three different kinds: glass, metal and stoneware. Which kind do you prefer?

I love my stoneware. I have a stoneware for my deep dish pie and a glass "regular" pan. Both do well.

I prefer stoneware or glass as well. But I also LOVE the deep dish pans, the little ones never fit my recipes. Guess I make big pies.

Re: Do you make a great pie? I need your opinion please.

I prefer deep, three inch dishes for my apple pies, because I mix a few types of apples and prefer to make a nice thick bottom crust. I have quite a few dishes for other-than-apple pies, tend to prefer stoneware, and recently purchased one of these to try:

I love it. It's nice, uniform stoneware, has some heft to it, and makes for a nice, even crust. I will be buying another before Thanksgiving.

I prefer glass or stoneware. It seems that I can even make pecan pie and not burn the crust with the glass or ceramic. Even with a crust shield I burn the edge with metal because it has to cook so long.

I have both glass and stoneware. I like both for different things. I only use the stoneware for deep dish stuff, but I wouldn't do without it.
