Accessories for pie and casserole transportation are not usually very sexy — think black vinyl and velcro straps. Vonny seriously glammed up the old-fashioned casserole carrier with bright stripes and polka dots, however, and now they've done the same for the pie carrier!
Vonny makes bright, stylish casserole carriers and totes. I have one of their casserole carriers and I love it.
So I was pretty jazzed to see this new pie carrier — modeled on the lines of an old-fashioned hat box. It is insulated to help keep meringue and ice cream pies cool, and it is made of laminated canvas for easy cleanup. It will fit a standard 9 to 10 inch diameter pie dish that is up to 4 3/8 inch tall. The inside has a non-skid surface to keep the pie from sliding and smooshing, and it zips open and closed for easy access.
This isn't the cheapest thing, but if pies are your potluck staple, then this carrier would make quite a statement! It would also double as a cake or quiche carrier.
