Individual Pie Slice Dishes

Found here.

With this persuasive selling description:

Individual Pie Slice Pan

Never mind the messy, uneven slices of cobbler, crisp, cake, or other pastries. Our individual slice pan shapes and bakes a perfect wedge-shaped serving every time.
  • Stoneware pan is perfect for hot fruit crisp, potpie, and other treats that tend to ooze or collapse when they’re cut and served.
  • Makes a 5” wedge-shaped serving.
  • 2/3 cup capacity.
  • Set of 2.
  • Dishwasher-safe.
On the surface, it seems like a dieter's dream (which is how it was presented to me...as a way to control uncontrollable urges to eat more than one slice)....or a single person's answer to questions about how to not waste so much food when trying to cook good meals. Under the cloud of perceived awesomeness, though....who is really going to take the time to bake a pie, and only bake a 6th of it?

If the person is making it from scratch, why take the time to cut the crust recipe way down like that when it takes even more effort than making the crust in the first place. And if they're taking a short cut by just buying a frozen prepared crust.....then what do they do with the rest of it? Are they really going to cut out little triangles to use for this individual serving?

Now one might say the person could just make several then and freeze the others....so then why not just make the whole pie to begin with and do the same thing? And considering these come in sets of two, does that mean the person would really buy several sets? I suppose that's the reasoning for saying how it makes perfect, mess free wedges....but it sounds like nothing more than a pain in the butt to me. I guess if you're rich or have tons of time to spare and would like to present cutesy pie wedges to your guests in individual dishes, then these are perfect. Otherwise, go buy an individual slice of pie if you can't control your urges to eat more than one slice....

My first thought was "How cute!" You make a very good point. The nearest Village Inn can do all the work for me...for less $$!

So funny! You completely elaborated on my thoughts of -- how do you cut the recipe down to make the one piece? What a time waster, etc.
