History of Food Storage: Pie Cabinet

A Pie Cabinet may be known as a pie safe, kitchen safe, or pie cupboard.
These pieces are as functional as they are beautiful!!
 Pie Cabinets were an important storage tool prior to refrigeration. Pies, pastries, breads, and other goodies could safely be tucked away in the pie cabinet. The pie cabinet kept these baked goods cool and moist. Inside the cabinet the foods were protected from mice, flies and other pest (such as a curious toddler!)

Pie cabinets are fairly simple. A cabinet with a screened front to allow air circulation. You can find plans to make your own pie safe or purchase an antique. Many sites also offer 'Amsih Made' Pie safes.

This piece of history is functional and beautiful!!
