Let the Norpro Ceramic Pie Bird chirp on top of your pie for a perfect crust - but instead of a song, this bird emits heat and steam and prevents discolored crusts. Simply place this bird in the middle of the pie, and make sure its beak peaks through the top crust. This bird stands nearly 4 inches high, just tall enough to help strengthen your perfectly round top crust. When the pie comes out of the oven, this bird helps it cool. It's a recipe for conversation when you bring a pie with a pie bird poking out to the dinner table.
