    Based on my not inconsiderable pie experiences over the last few decades I purchased an Iceland "Family" pie yesterday pretty certain that when the box was opened the contents would be smaller than the box suggested and therefore fit in my double skillet easily.

    Therefore I was surprised to find it would NOT fit in without modification made to the pastry layout.

    It is now cooking over a low flame...

    Heeding Pappajohn's warning I have placed my flat toaster thingy on the flame to see if it will work as a defuser thingy...

    Glad to see that I'm not the only one with a slightly charred skillet handle...

    ...although to be honest, one of mine isn't so much charred, as melted enough to stop the button working anymore :Doh:

    (I blame the design...can't be my or JJ's fault :Blush:)

    That's not "charred"...


    ...it is "seasoned".

    As you like big pies JJ, should your people not be working on designing a treble skillet?

    I cannot believe that you have been 'disloyal' to FB!!!! Disgusting (your action that is, not the FB pie ... well ... maybe both! :BigGrin: ).

    Don't suppose you bought a pack of brillo pads to clean the pan up too did you ... seasoned ... nah, just plain manky!!! :Rofl1:

    Then again, seeing as you LIKE FB pies I don't suppose the 'contamination' on the pan will make much difference to the taste!!! :RollEyes:

    I've just looked at the Iceland pie contents and it only has 25% beef in it! :Eeek: Mind you, the FB version only has 25% beef in it too and even this is an improvement on the FB Steak and Kidney pie which contains 12% Beef and 9.5% Pork Kidney ... now I KNOW why I don't like them ... yuk! :shout:

    JJ if you eat the whole Iceland Pie (800g) you will consume 1900 calories (245kcal per 100g)! :Eek!:

    The FB pies are 'healthier' (if that is the correct term) in that they are around 151kcal per 100g (around 718 kcal for the whole pie).

    Realistically ... that's a heck of a lot of calories for a 'cardboard box' with a bit of gravy inside! :Rofl1:

    JJ I tried cooking one of the famous FB pies in a double skillet; it was a complete failure. Did this pie cook any better, as I would like to cook pies in my ovenless Arto.

    Re. Iceland products !

    In the past I have never ventured into an Iceland emporium !! :Blush: I watched with interest the recent documentary on the firm and was so impressed that I lurked for a while in their Shrewsbury store..:Eek!:..All the items I purchased have been of very good quality and competitively priced !:thumb::thumb::thumb:

    C'mon JJ ... are you still ALIVE after stuffing yourself silly with that pie? Did it cook okay in the double skillet? Is it BETTER than the FB ones (surely it must be! :BigGrin:).
