An Innovative Pie Carrier

Martha Stewart Living, November 1998

A freshly baked pie is always a welcome gift, even more so when it comes wrapped inside this unusual but sensible container. A bamboo steamer is the ideal size to transport a pie to your hostess's door and can hold two pies at once. After placing lid on steamer, secure with a piece of twill tape tied in a bow.

    Fantastic! I've been looking for a sturdy - and economical - way to transport at least four pies on a six hour trip. I think I'll take it a step further and add one more strip of twill tape so it's secure on all side and I can carry them more safely.

    What a fantastic idea! (Why didn't I think of that?)

    I have never considered a steamer for a pie container, but what a great idea! I will use it durning our Easter Celebration.

    bamboo steamers come in tiers, so one pie per tier. i love that the pie inside is an expected surprise!!

    This looks like a lovely way to bring a pie to someones's home and give as a gift. I would use a beautiful pie plate as well and maybe a coordinating ribbon. How do you do two pies? What supports the top one??

    While it did transport 2 pies safely on a plane it was a bit cumbersome. Make sure you don't use heavy pie plates, because with two pies I was worried the bottoms would fall out. This is great for a short trip, in a car though!
