In a Facebook group dedicated to the popular Kmart pie maker, one mum has revealed plans for a new version of the appliance.

The Kmart’s $29 pie maker has undoubtedly become one of the most popular appliances in the country with thousands attesting to its brilliance.

In the Facebook group Kmart Pie Maker Recipes, Tips and Ideas Australia, a member said Kmart had alerted them to the fact it’s bringing out a new version of the device — one big enough to feed a family.

“Kmart has advised me via email that their family size pie maker (the large family pie with just 1 large hole) for $29 is due in stores this September,” the mother said.

“I’m so ready!!!” one person commented in response to the announcement.

“Giant custard tart come at me …” said another.

“Hope they are going to be well prepared for the rush of crazy pie maker people,” a third added.

If you are desperate for one earlier than that Aldi do stock a similar size we believe.

Are you excited?

  • I’ve read all the comments and some recipes to do with the pie makers but sadly I’ve never owned one. It’s amazing the different types of things that people can create. It does make me want one and I may think more seriously about it when it launches.


  • We have a pie maker that was a bit of a novelty. We used it once or twice, but no longer.


  • Sounds more worthwhile than the little four pies maker, but we so rarely eat a pie that I doubt I’ll bother. Thanks for letting us know that K-Mart is thinking about it though.


  • I really need to try making pies one day. Would certainly be cheaper than bakery ones, which have gone up in price recently. Why I don’t buy them often.

    • Pies are fun to make too and we play with various fillings.


  • Looks like a great idea if it cooks the pie well – I have trouble with pastry not properly cooking all the way through sometimes doing it in the oven.


  • I have been thinking about getting one but I will buy it use it a couple of times and it will sit in the cupboard. I am wanting to be more sustainable in life


  • I’m really not sure about these pie makers. It doesn’t excite me!


  • I love how much excitement this creates but I still haven’t got one


  • I never use a pie maker really.


  • A large pie maker looks worth looking at when released.


  • Oh goodness i can imagine it being just as popular


  • Mmmmm, No thanks I’ll just use my pie dishes and oven :)


  • i have a sunbeam 4 pie maker and I think these are the perfect size for our family – whilst the family pie size is nice, I don’t think i would use it enough to justify adding it to my kitchen appliance collection


  • Thinking about it, it could come in handy for fruit pies.


  • There has been family size sandwich makers for many years. I am not surprised that family size pie makers are going to be manufactured
