Four and 20 black birds baked in a pie . . . thats the nursery rhyme. Now put the black (or red) bird to good use.

Pie funnels are used in baking pies and prevent the pie from boiling over in the oven by allowing the steam created when the fruit filling or other contents are cooking to escape from inside the pie. How to use: Line the pie dish with pastry, place the "bird" in the centre, put in the filling around the "pie bird" then put a pastry top on but allowing the pie bird to stick out of a hole in the pastry . Pinch crust around the bird's shoulder, allowing the head to stick through the pastry. The bird will release steam through his mouth "vent" during baking and help to prevent juices from boiling over in the oven.

Allows steam to escape from your pie.
