    Breville Pie Magic pie maker instructions and recipe help please 24th May 06 at 9:07 PM
    Hello,

    I have just acquired a Breville Pie Magic through Freecycle and was wondering if anyone could give me some basic instructions for using it as it did not come with a manual.

    I think I remember someone on OS saying that they used theirs all the time to batch make lots of pies to put in the freezer and it seemed they were quite creative with their ingredients- both sweet and savoury. I couldn't find the thread again though.

    Mine needs a good clean - am wondering how to clean it too? I guess it will have to be a damp microfibre cloth? Think it will need some disinfecting too

    I would welcome any help you can give me
    TIA
    Sparkly

    I've written to Breville, and they are very kindly sending me an instruction booklet.
    They couldn't help with my query about the two cutter sizes, so if someone here could measure their two and let me know, I'd be ever so grateful

    Many thanks
    Tara

    Inspired by this thread, I bought a Salter twin pie maker on eBay this week an used it tonight for the first time to make steak and ale pies. They were delicious! I'll make more tomorrow and freeze them...

    After reading this thread I too bought a pie maker and used it for the first time today and I am really pleased with it, I made 7 chicken and vegetable pies and 8 rhubarb pies. The one I bought was the breville one and was so easy to use, making 4 pies at a time.
    I used tesco ready rolled pastry due to time, and managed to get the 15 pies out if two packs, costing £2.40, Plus filling, rhubarb free and the chicken ones used a couple handfuls of mixed veg and two small chicken breasts. The pastry has stayed crisp and browned well, in all probably the 15 pies cost less than £4.
    I bought it as I was finding that I had odds and ends of stew or mince left over at times, but not enough for a portion, and will use the pies for OH lunch box instead of rolls and cold meat,
    Every days a School day!

    I bought a Breville pie magic at a car boot for £1.50 last weekend, complete with instruction manual. PM me and I can find a way to share the instructions with anyone who is interested (maybe email you a scan?)

    Hi, I have the Prolectrix model and the pie rings are 9cm wide for the top and 12cm wide for the pie base.

    I would assume they are all about the same size.

    *** Breville Pie Maker Manual, Here ***
    Is this what you were looking for?

    It is a manual for the Breville 4 pie maker but should be ok for you.

    It does say you may need another viewer to read it properly, I just clicked on the bar and it downloaded it using Adobe and it is then in normal quality.

    Hi I dont have a breville but mine works the same.
    You need to make around 12 oz of short crust. 8oz flour ,4 oz fat..
    Roll out then cut the tops and bottoms using the cutting rings that came with it.
    Then you cook off some thing to fill it. Dont put stuff that needs cooking in raw.
    I know you are supposed to pre heat the machine but I don't .
    I put the bottoms in, add the filling in a mound and then pop the tops on then give it about 10 minutes.
    You can just lift the lid and look to see if they are done yet.
    If you do a second batch they will be quicker because the machine is hot already.
    You can cook the empty bottoms if you want to make little open pies with uncooked fillings. Just push the insides flat again using a clean jar bottom if they puff up a bit.

    here is the pdf to the breville manual which I just found...
