Not all pie maker creations are a good idea, as this woman soon discovered. She shared how her clever idea for the pie maker turned into a major cooking disaster!

Sharing in the popular Facebook group, Kmart Pie Maker Recipes, Tips and Ideas Australia, the woman shared, “So I thought I’d do something different and put a big marshmallow in a cup and cook them in the pie maker.”

“But Maria had a drink or two and sort of forgot they were in there (1 min or so but 4mins later),” she explains.

“Ooh shit go and rescue them and this is what I found.”

She added, “Ooh well live life, laugh, deal with it and how the hell am I going to clean it now?”

“Tomorrow will be a new day and I’ll post my progress then.”

Maria later edited her post to add, “OK so now that I’m fairly sober after drinking nearly 3/4 of a bottle of wild turkey (don’t recommend it all the time) I heated her up and woohoo pretty much back to normal, few bits here and there but she’ll be right mate!!!!”

Adding, “I’ll just eat the marshmallows raw from now on lmao not even game to put in the air fryer.”


Her funny post has attracted over 1000 comments and 4K reactions. People were in fits at her expense.

“Pleeeease put one in the air fryer. I want to see what happens.”

“Drunk pie making could be a whole page in that!!”

“You should get your own show “Drunk cooking with Maria “ it would be gold.”

“Lol this is funny, the things we cook when drunk. I reckon it would of tasted yummy.”

Have you had any disasters in your pie maker? 

Check out some of our yummy pie maker recipes below:

  • Ha ha that is seriously funny – and honest! Glad Maria didn’t get hurt dealing with hot, melted marshmallow at the time.


  • So glad it was easy to clean and that she could see the funny side and was willing to share it with us. I’m sure something along these lines has happened to most of us at one time or another


  • Don’t drink and pie make


  • Glad she could see the funny side of things.


  • I bought the sunbeam pie maker but find I waste a lot of the square ready rolled pastry. Also the pies don’t brown too well on the top. Am I not putting enough filling in. It says 1/2 a cup. Does anyone know where you can buy the roll of pastry. In Mandurah WA


  • Haha, no but great advice on what not to do!! Glad she could clean it. I thought she might need to throw it out.


  • Maybe should just stick to what the appliances manual recommends.


  • hahaha i like the way she was thinking, that would have been awesome if it had worked!


  • Haha that’s funny. Least I definitely know to keep marshmallows away from my pie maker.


  • I like marshmallow the usual way and I’m still considering whether to get the pie maker or not. My kitchen is quite full of appliances at the moment.


  • Lucky the pie maker cleaned up pretty well. At least she had a laugh about it!


  • Glad she was able to clean up the pie maker.


  • She was lucky she only had a mess to clean up and nothing worse!


  • She was lucky it was just a mess!

    • Yes think of it something worse could have happened.


  • Aw what a mess lol !
