Kmart fans meltdown as cult favourite disappears from shelves
Kmart fans have expressed their dismay after one of the discount retailer's most sought after kitchen appliances has disappeared from shelves.
The $29 pie maker, that even has its own Facebook page with over 16,000 members, is currently unavailable in stores because of its sheer popularity.
The affordable and versatile pie maker can be used to create pies, scones, quiches and even doughnuts all under 10 minutes.
"When your 3 Kmarts in the area are sold out of pie makers and they don't know when the next delivery is -- why?!" one shopper wrote on the Kmart Pie Maker Recipes Australia Facebook page.
"The pie maker continues to be sold out. Kmart has even removed it from their website now!" another added.
"Kmart have them for $29 but most stores are sold out and I believe from comments today online they have disappeared?" one fan wrote.
According to news.com.au, Kmart has confirmed that the pie maker has sold out but the retailer hopes to have them back on shelves in September.
"Due to popular demand the Kmart pie maker is currently sold out," the spokesman said.
"Deliveries of stock will arrive in stores across the next six weeks with a larger shipment due in September. We thank our customer for their patience."
Last month, one Kmart shopper revealed how she used her pie maker to create Nutella filled doughnuts only using eight ingredients.
Others have shared their creative recipes using the pie maker, which include making cupcakes, muffins and quiche.
