Best you can Find *** Without a doubt

My in-laws got me hooked on the Palmer cast iron pie iron over 50 years ago. I bought other brands
before and they did not make it through the test of time. The other brands either melted or the hinges
broke or didn't crimp the same. I've bought several Palmer irons and keep using them for larger groups
at our fire pit. My son has requested "one of the good pie irons" for Christmas this year. We moved from
PA several years ago to VA, unable to find them around the area. We are in PA this week and are
planning to visit the factory in West Newton to purchase another iron tomorrow.
30 plus years and still cooking.

These are the best pie irons we have ever owned. My parents are still using theirs from 50 years ago.
Best Mountain Pie Maker Ever

I have had mine for years and there is not any other one that compares to this one. I love that it crimps
the edges and makes it really crispy!!
The only sandwich toaster worth owning

I have been using my Palmers for over 30 Years and they are legendary for my family and friends. The
original one is still going strong. It is the only one that makes the perfect toasted sandwich over a fire. I
have had friends show me other ones and they are never the same. My kids love these and we have
come up with dozens of receipes from dinner to dessert and they are awesome for breakfast sandwiches.
You would be amazed at how many unique sandwiches you can make. I am getting ready to order my
third batch of toasters for a gift for my brother who borrowed mine over the weekend and fell in love
with making sandwiches over the fire. Awsome Product and MADE IN THE USA
The best out there

Mt. Pie Making at it's Best

My parents have had the same pie irons for camping since I was a kid. Now, at almost 40 yrs. old, I am
using their pie irons for my own. Of all the pie irons I have used (camping with friends, backyard
campfires, etc), these ones are built to last & hold up amazingly. I am planning to purchase a couple
more soon & am so happy to have been able to find that this company still produces them! Thank you C.

Our original one has been in our family for 35+ years and just added 2 more to the collection. Have used
many others trying to find one to compare to the amazing one we grew up using and all were a waste of
money. I finally spent some time researching the name located on the side of our "Mountain Pie Maker"
and was so excited to find that they were still in business. These are well worth the money, they last
forever. Thank you for making a quality product for so many years!!!
The best on the market

We have been using cast iron pie maker's here since the 80s when I was camping as a kid. The very best.
I just bought a replacement for my parents to replace those 1980s pie maker's. Preparing to order for
myself again now.

I am never written an online review but I must for this. This cast iron sandwich toaster is the best in the
world. I received mine when my grandmother passes away a few years ago. She used it with my mother
when she was a little girl as they go camping all the time. I know use it with my little girl and it is still
going strong - even has a beautiful red handle, although my grandfather may have done that, not sure.
Don't waste your money with the junk you'll find elsewhere, those don't crimp well and they heat
unevenly. Buy this thing local if you can. They are great!
Get the best forget the rest

Came across these irons in the late 70's at a hunting/outdoor supplies post in the mountains in PA. BEST
IRONS EVER! Over the years I've tried two or three aluminum & non stick coated, non-hinged varieties
that didn't compare and ultimately found their way to the trash. I have both the single and the double
pie irons. Both are great, although I probably prefer the single one only because the double is a little
heavy and you have to be a little more careful when you dump the pies out that you hit your plate with
both pies! ;-) If you camp, or enjoy campfires even in your own back yard, you need one of these!
Getting ready to order a couple more

This is the best pie iron you can buy. Crimps for a nice pie. We love them and have been making
campfire pies our whole lives. Skip the Chinese junk and buy a high end pie iron made right here in
Love my iron

Only a year old but fantastic pie iron
Posted by Tom in Wisconsin on 16th Jul 2015
I have only had my pie iron for a year it is great far better than any other irons on the market today!!!
My other iron is 40+ years old and my new Palmer Manufacturing it the one I choose nearly every time.
I just wish you made other cast iron pie irons...
Thanks for making a great product.
Absolutely the best on the market - the hit of the party
Posted by Karen from PA on 15th Dec 2013
I have owned two of these for many years (25+). When we get invited to cookouts, we are always asked
to bring our irons. The other cheaper ones don't hold a match to this one (excuse the pun) The hinges
outlast the other aluminum ones by far. I recommend this one to all our friends, and have given them as
THE best pie iron around!!!

I have had my irons since the 80's and they are by far superior to any other irons made out there. I
absolutely agree with Kevin S., Cast iron is much better than the aluminum ones, and the hinged model is
best. I have other non-hinged ones and I almost never use them. They are clumsy and awkward. In fact I
have given some away. The crimped edges are also what makes it. The crimping seals everything in so
the ingredients don't leak out. They are the absolute best pie makers out there. My cast iron pie makers
have a wonderful patina on them. I never wash them. I religiously use cooking spray or butter with each
sandwich and they slide right out. If there is any residual cheese or other ingredients remaining, I just
cook it out or scrape off. I looked a long while to find these and I am so happy to have found your
website. I ordered two more and can't wait to get them. I think I may order some more for Christmas to
give as gifts for friends now that in found your website. I hope you continue to make these for many
many more years. Thank you!!
30+ years and still going strong

This is essential to my camping gear... have had this iron since camping with my mom and dad over 35
years ago. Other campers always complain about their aluminum, or the 'non-hinged' models and want
to know where I got mine. It is worth every penny... I can not sing my praises about mine enough.
