This little hand crank commercial grade machine can crank out up to 200 fruit and meat pies per hour
A fold over pie dough filled with fruits, or meat mixtures have been a favorite dish for centuries in many different cultures and languages. Some may know them as fried fruit pies, turnovers, and meat pies.
Depending on the spice, meat blends and cultures or where you grew up you may know them as a pasty, Jamaican Patties, Empadas, Empanadillas, Empanadas, Lahmajoons, Samosas, Sanbusak, Stromboli's, Panzarottis, Pierogies, Pot Stickers, Calzone, Beerocks, Boeregs, or probably best known as a simple meat pie, fruit pie or turnover.
The pasty pie was a recipe brought over from Great Britain and the European Countries. More specifically the mixture of meat and vegetables such as turnip or rutabaga would better define the countries of origin.
In the United States the pasty pie became popular with miners who could easily carry them in their lunch pails. The pasty is still a popular pie meal for the Swedish, Scandinavian and Norwegian culture influenced states within the United States.
Up until now the homeowner and even the small bakery and restaurant owner couldn’t afford a pie making machine to make and roll out these popular pies in any quantity for frying or baking.
Their only option would be to roll out the pie dough, fill and then hand fold and crimp to edges. A commercial duty machine could cost nearly $2000, just too large and expensive for a standard home to a small commercial size kitchen.
The Little Pie Maker uses rolled pie dough. Simply place a square of rolled out dough over the top fill with fruits or meat mixes and roll. The machine cuts, folds, and crimps the edges all in one rotation.
