    A simple question for experienced Double Skillet users....................... Can you cook JJ favourite FB pies in a double skillett and expect the pastry to rise and be crispy?

    We have just tried one and it did not rise - our fault or the limitation of the double skillett?

    Do not worry Norman it is almost certainly the limit of FB pies where your problem lies

    Well Norman , the only time I saw JJ cooking one in the double skillet ... it was just as you described it:RollEyes: . He likes them in the oven ... So...not in the hymer , in the Wagon!

    Otherwise , the double skillet is really good , for a lot of things . Also you can have croissants warmed up and crispy in it ... but you have to be careful and watch them often or they get burnt:Eeek:

    Amicalement

    No, they are made only for cooking food.

    It's Fray Bentos they're talking about. It's an ongoing topic on here :BigGrin:
    JJ is a big fan of them. Others have varying opinions!

    Thank you Frankie, this was the answer I was seeking. Please pass apologies to JJ I hadn't expected, (though I am not surprised) so much banter at JJ's expense as I thought this FB banter had died a death

    The FB banter won't dies a death until JJ lets it :Laughing: Must have a look in the cupboard to see if we have any, haven't had one of the delicious delicacies for a while :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    You can use the double skillet as an oven so the pie should bake as normal, it works with proper pies! The trick when using the Skillet as an oven is to have it on a lowish heat and make sure you use the diffuser:thumb:

    Did this, used the diffuser and left it for an hour to cook but the pastry did not rise - it ended up more like a pudding than a pie. Reading the manual it says it is OK to heat pies but makes no mention of cooking pastry, so unless anyone has managed to bake pastry in a double skillett I feel it must be a limitation on its use.

    There was one thing we did not do though that might have affected the end result - we did not pre heat both sides of the skillett

    Use the skillet all the time and have been known to have the odd FB pie, but have to say just do not think the two work well together.

    FB pies like JJ are a law on to themselves.:Smile:
