Anyone using silicone pans for pies? I was wondering if it is more difficult to line the flexible silicone pan with pastry and trim etc than the rigid tin variety?

The silicone pan is fluted as well.

Paul - I’m not using silicone pans for pies so I can’t completely answer your question. I’m not sure if they would be harder to use - I would think that it might be a bit challenging the first time, but you’d be able to get the hang of it.
Personally, I’m not a big fan of silicone pans. As a somewhat clumsy person, I can already pictured myself accidentally bending one side and send the pie flying to the floor big surprise.
I currently own ceramic pie pan and stainless steel (not non stick) fluted pie pan.

I have a glass one but thought I might try silicone.

I love my glass pie pans and have not been really tempted to try silicone for pies. For one thing, you want good browning on a pie crust. For another, pie crust is not as flexible as a cake—more brittle, prone to cracking if the pan flexes and silicone is so flexible!
