I was given a Sunbeam Pie Maker (makes 2 pies). The model number is 4808. However, I didn't get the manual for it. Also, I discovered that there might be pastry cutters that are supposed to come with it but I didn't get those either. So I guess I have two questions. First, does anyone know if I actually need the pastry cutters? Second, does anyone have a copy of the manual that they could share? Thanks!

If google and manufacturer website are of no help then ask a search agency like http://manualfox.com/link/sunbeam.htm - They find you virtually every manual. The service is not for free, but often worthy (you only pay if they find what you are asking for).
I found a link for the Australian site which has the manual
http://www.sunbeam.com.au/Pages/Support/ManualSearch.aspx I haven't contacted them regarding the cutters as I have the fold over pie makers that are the same size to use.

I also sent this to Sunbeam and told them they should have this for their loyal customers! I have been looking for this for a while and just got lucky, so I am sharing my info.
This is the same basic manual for the 2 up or 4 up Sunbeam Piemaker, also called PIE MAGIC 4 or PIE MAGIC 2!

I have a Sunbeam Pie Magic pie maker which is not the same model, but I'm sure they all work on the same principle. Mine is Teflon coated. The pastry cutters are simply circles, with the smaller one (top) being 9.5cm (3 3/4") and the larger one (base) being 12 cm (4 3/4") in diameter. Use frozen sheets of ready-rolled pastry (short crust or puff pastry - thawed).
Pre-heat the pie maker for 5 minutes, or until the indicator light goes off). Cut a couple of slits in the edge of the larger pastry base to make it easier to fit in the pie maker. Place the pastry into the base and overlap the slits, pressing them together so that they are joined properly. Put your filling in (do not overfill), then place the smaller pastry round on top.
Close the pie maker, and cook for about 6 minutes (8 minutes for a darker top). Remove the pies with a plastic spatula so as not to scratch the surface of the machine. If your pie maker is not Teflon coated, you may have to oil the pie molds.
I hope these simple instructions are a help to you. You may have to experiment a bit with the size of the pastry circles, but I'm sure you can cut around a suitably sized plate or cup for the correct size. Please email me if I can be of further help. Brenda in Oz.
If you keep an eye on eBay, Amazon, craigslist, etc. you might eventually find what you are looking for. Good luck.

I checked manualsforall and they don't have manuals for appliances yet. Thanks for the link though - I'll keep looking there.
Amuck, I didn't purchase the pie maker - it was given to me by someone who didn't use it anymore. I had contacted Sunbeam as well but the pie maker I have is discontinued and they don't have the manual or pastry cutters for it anymore. Thanks for your feedback though. :)
You can search this link under the appliance category for this manual...
This link is to the Sunbeam website. It will take you to a webpage where you can contact them online to ask questions. They will send you an email with their reply. If you scroll down to the bottom of the page you will see phone numbers where you can call them instead, if you want. Since those items were missing from the box when you purchased it, I'm sure they will send them to you at no charge.
