Pie Birds - Prevent Deflation, Boil-Overs, and Sagging Crusts

This cool new Pie Bird actually dates back to Victorian times when it was used to vent steam from a baking pie to prevent deflation, boil-over of fillings, and sagging crusts. You won't need four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie for this to work, just place one of these enameled stoneware bird-shaped chimneys in the center of a pie dish, add your fillings and crust around it and, while baking, it will allow the steam to rise up through its hollow body and vent out through its open beak. A great example of form and function working together to add a fun touch while baking professional-quality pies right in your very own home.
