In Australia we call them Jaffle Irons. Furphy no longer get them made in Australia having sent their molds to China a few years ago.

Derek,

Thanks for sharing those photos with us! Those are really beautiful. As you know, we have "Pie Irons" here but none as beautiful as those.

I won't even get started about sending manufacturing to China....

That is a great looking jaffle iron Derek!

I love cooking in pie irons. I think it would be nice if folks would share some of their pie iron/jaffle iron recipes.

I've got a couple recipes that I tried out for the first time this weekend, and they need a bit more work before I share them--
-- bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers (stuffed with herbed cheese)
-- portabello mushroom tuna melts

I need to work on keepin' the cheese stuffing inside the poppers (I'm thinking another wind of bacon across the top), and I want to try a different marinade for the portabello mushrooms (balsamic vinegar + extra virgin olive oil dressing was too strong--plain old cider or red wine or even lemon juice + EVOO would have been better.)

I'm going to try them again later this week and I'll post them.

Meanwhile...a question. I keep my DO in a cover when it's not in use--how do people keep their pie irons? I was thinking maybe a small nylon stuff sack cover would work...?

I'm looking forward to hearing more about your recipes once they are done. It sounds like you had a great weekend!

I don't have any pie irons so I don't know the best way to store them.

I speak from a dirth of knowledge but I think most DO's have covers to protect them from the wet. Aside from the danger of snapping off legs, they are pretty sturdy. (All of mine have have covers Gold Tooth Smile: )

I have a pie iron discovered in my vintage trailer. I have not used it yet but it just sits there with no covering of any kind. it lives indooors away from the wet.

I'm way at the other end of the scale when it comes to DO covers. The only one I have is for the 20" and I bought it because it was a good deal. I have so many ovens that I don't have room to store them each in their own bag. I take the lids off and nest them, biggest on the bottom to smallest on top. The lids get stacked on edge between the wall and the oven stack(s). I cover the stacks and lids with a sheet so they don't collect dust and such.

Hi,

I read that someone is looking for something to store their pie irons in. Here is a link for pie iron storage bag. It will hold up to 4 irons.

Jim--thanks for the heads-up to the storage bag. That looks remarkably like some of the bat bags available now at Dicks and other sporting goods spots. Hmmmm. Wink
