An easy frozen banana pie, a Revol dish and the Edsels. Who could want more?
The wonderful people at Revol-USA asked me to review their new pie plate. While I thought I might do a new casserole for them, I figured I’d take a chance on making a pie. I kept my fingers crossed but then Helen Fletcher did a very timely tutorial on no-fail pie crusts, so I took a chance. IT WORKS!!!
Anyway, now onto the dish–It’s from their Crumpled collection.
See Revol on the web for more information.
This pie plate is deep, and I mean DEEP, so if you are making a single crust pie, use a recipe for a double crust.
You expect quality from Revol, and you get it in this pie dish. They are taking a turn into nice bright colors and you have your choice for this pan. I chose aubergine (purple) but you have bright red, lime green, yellow and dark blue. Gorgeous in all colors so it’s hard to choose. The colors are deep and dramatic. No skimping on pigment here. They are true artisans.
I baked the pie shell in a 450F/225C oven. No color change and no breakage or cracking…but this is Revol folks 🙂
I also put this into the deep freeze when I filled it. Again, no ill effects….but this IS Revol, folks 🙂
Release of the pie slice was as, well, easy as pie. Nothing stuck. Cleanup was just a soapy sponge and the pan looks brand new.
