The traditional pie funnel is a bakers’ secret weapon. It’s no exaggeration to say this small but vital bit of kit will transform your pies. And now Paul Hollywood has created his own version of this classic tool to help home bakers create perfect pies.
Here’s how it works. The funnel sits in the middle of the pie as it bakes, helping to support the crust and letting excess steam escape. This means you avoid soggy, sunken crusts. And because it stops the filling boiling over, it cuts down on mess too!
Paul has tried this funnel with some of his favourite sweet and savoury pie recipes. Now it’s your turn – because once you’ve tried it, you’ll never bake a pie without it again!
