Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good results These ceramic beans worked much better than the ones I had before. They spread the heat and allow the pastry to bake evenly, avoiding a soggy bottom!. I used ordinary beans before which were not very effective. 19 August 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by An essential product My previous ceramic baking beans I purchased in my local Waitrose - they nolonger stock them. Consequently when I needed more beans for a larger tart I needed to go to John Lewis and purchased them via the - collect from your nearest Waitrose service. The product and the service are excellent.. 13 June 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by all you need all you need a cooking bean to be. There are plenty in the pot so you can fill 2 or 3 pie cases at a time easily. 28 January 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Long time coming Been meaning to buy these for a long while now and on my last visit to JL while buying other things in the Kitchen department, I popped these in too. They're the sort of thing you only buy once as I see no way they could 'wear out'. For keeping a pastry base flat - brilliant. 09 November 2011
