I have one that I really like for custard pies (like pumpkin or chess pie) and for blindbaking for cream pies - I put a cookie sheet on the rack below to catch any errant drips.
I prefer glass.
I agree with Savorykitchen about the cookie sheet, but line it with foil so that the butter bits don't burn on, their not terribly fun to scrub off.

luv my perforated pie tin but may be unduly influenced by its vintagey look. Use a cookie sheet to catch the drips.

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
It can be as easy as swapping in a new kind of light bulb
