Pie Dam


What's this?

The no-nonsense testers over at Cook's Illustrated reviewed it as follows:

"Leftover pie doesn't last long, but when there is some to spare, a Pie Gate... promises to keep the filling intact. This plastic tool, which looks like two wings attached on a central hinge, adjusts to fit any angle — and most pie plates. Its does the job of neatly and tightly sealing in leaky fillings. The device can also double as a dam for cut rounds of creamy, oozy cheeses such as Brie or Camembert."

From the product website:


Slips into place when you cut that first piece of pie, thereby containing soft filling and keeping the sliced edge fresh.

Pies, tarts, and casseroles keep their shape and stay fresh longer.

Easily adjusts to any angle.

Fits most 8"–9" pie plates.

Dishwasher safe.

Wow, I couldn't figure it out, but I think I've actually seen one of these!
