Did this gadget solve the problem of runny pie fillings?
Leftover pie doesn’t last long, but when there is some to spare, a Pie Gate from Progressive International promises to keep the filling intact. This plastic tool, which looks like two wings attached on a central hinge, adjusts to fit any angle—and most pie plates. Its flexible silicone edge does the job of neatly and tightly sealing in leaky fillings. The device can also double as a dam for cut rounds of creamy, oozy cheeses such as Brie or Camembert.
