Mini pie bakers

Does anyone have one of the little mini pie baking machines made by Babycakes, Emeril, Wolfgang Puck and others? If so, do you use them often and what do you use them to make? I'm thinking mini quiches, small dessert poetions, etc. your thoughts please.

I tried low carb crust in it...turned out gooey.

I tried regular pie crust dough in it for a mini apple pie...turned out gooey.

I tried puff pastry, even that turned out gooey.

Supposedly you can cook muffins in it. I may try that later when I feel like "wasting" some more ingredients.

The pie maker I got was not at all what I thought it would be like.

I don't have one but my mom does. She makes all kinds of mini meatloaves in it and egg bakes. It is just her, so she like it. I think it is time consuming versus just baking in a muffin tin in the oven/toaster oven.

Thanks everyone. I took the plunge and ordered Emeril's from Amazon for $28 - or about half of what QVC was selling them for. It has four wells and they seem a little more shallow than the WP. I'll try the OMM in them too as well as all the varieties of eggs.
There's just hubby and me - seems like a good way to reinvent fritatas and use up leftovers. Hope I didn't just toss $28 down the drain!

THe shallow wells should cook better than the deeper wells for crusty things anyway...just my thought on it.

Please let us know how it works and if you like it.

The convience of it appealed to me. I haven't given up on mine yet, I just haven't had lots of time to experiment.

I am all for a different type if it cooks properly.

$9.81? Wow! I can NEVER find deals like that!! Let's all give them a try for low carb breakfasts (I just can't face frying-pan eggs anymore) and lunches and see how innovative we can be.
Please post your results - I need some motivation for summer.
