Mrs. Anderson's Baking Pie Bird, PorcelainRegular price $5.99
Mrs. Anderson's Pie Bird blends a centuries-old fairy tale rhyme with baking pies. This whimsical Pie Bird, also known as a pie vent, pie funnel, pie chimney, or pie whistle, allows steam to escape from the juices of meat and fruit pies while they bake to keep the pie fillings from bubbling over and baking onto the racks or oven floor. Steam escapes through the bird's vented beak while the flat base adds stability during use. Whether learning how to make meat pie or perfecting a fruit pie from scratch, this hero of baking accessories works hard to keep delicious filling inside the crust where it belongs. Easy to use. Simply drape bottom crust in the pie dish, place the Pie Bird in the center, and spoon in the pie filling. Add the top crust and cut a small hole so the Pie Bird can stick out to vent steam properly. Pinch the center of the top crust to the bird to seal and bake pie according to the recipe. Allow to cool slightly before removing as the Pie Bird will be hot. Made from fine-quality porcelain that's free from lead and cadmium, Mrs. Anderson's Pie Bird is decorative yet functional, strong, durable, heat safe (to 600-degrees Fahrenheit) and dishwasher safe for easy cleanup.
