You'll love this charming baking accessory. Mrs. Anderson's Pie Bird allows steam to escape from meat and fruit pies to reduce spillage and prevent top crusts from sagging while the pie bakes. Steam vents through the bird's beak to prevent pie filling from bubbling over; top crust is supported by the bird's shoulders, eliminating bowed crust
Simply place bird at center of bottom crust, spoon in filling, add top crust with small hole so bird sticks out, pinch crust around bird to seal, and bake.
Allow to cool slightly before removing as Pie Bird will be hot; heat safe (to 600-degrees Fahrenheit) and dishwasher safe for easy cleanup. Made from fine quality porcelain; lead and cadmium free; strong and durable; fun and functional; flat base adds stability during use.
