A blackbird to bake in a pie!

A useful PIE BIRD funnel from LE CREUSET designed to be used with their pie dish range.

COLOUR : BLACK, with a touch of YELLOW
MATERIAL : STONEWARE

He comes safely packed in his own little box, measuring around 9 cm x 6 cm x 6 cm
Once released the neat little PIE BIRD measures in at approximately:

* 9 cm high from the tip of his open beak to his Le Creuset embossed base and around 4 cm wide

'This Le Creuset Pie Bird Funnel is the perfect item to use when baking a pie with a pastry lid. Simply place the bird in the centre of the dish before covering the pie with the pastry lid, cutting a hole for the bird to poke through and securing the pastry around its shoulders. The top of the funnel pokes up through the pastry, supporting it and preventing it from dropping into the filling as it bakes. Also the pie bird funnel has openings at the base, so the pie juices can bubble freely and the centre is hollow and vented through the beak allowing steam to escape and thus ensuring a dry crisp pastry and no leaks from the filling.'

Full use & care instructions supplied on the box.

♦ Made in China
♦ 5 year guarantee
♦ Oven/microwave/freezer & dishwasher safe

After a short soak, I sometimes giving him a gentle prod with a skewer and/or a child's toothbrush and then run him under the tap to dislodge any blockage, before putting him on the top rack of the dishwasher.

Other colours available, some of which may be 'Country Specific', initially, and more expensive as a result.

This bird is awesome if you love pies then this is a must have item.
Put in the middle of you pie before cooking poke the head though the top.
Helps let steam out and you having a soggy top .

Has definitely made the pastry in my pies better and helps stop sinking in the middle...
Also, it's just a gorgeous little thing which looks nice in neutral/cream as it goes with all colour schemes/vintage looks!

I simply couldn't resist this adorable little sweetie in the Christmas Shop sales for just £3.75! - and I wasn't disappointed either.

This sweet little pie funnel really is as cute as it is in it's picture, and being from Le Creuset, it is also of excellent quality too. A big bonus with me is that, as it is so neat and a little smaller than some of the other bird pie funnels that are around, it not only does it's job beautifully - but also without taking up too much space within the pie that could be better packed with more filling instead.

It came nicely packaged in it's own pretty little box and I think that it would make a really great gift for any cook, as it is a solid and sturdy little chap with a very lovely smooth finish that certainly does seem to be an "easy clean - chipping, scratching, cracking and stain resistant surface" - and the 5 year guarantee must surely suggest that Le Creuset feel that they can confidently back this claim up too?!

In fact, I was so impressed that I also bought it's mate in the Cerise colour as well. Now I can make two different pies at the same time, and simply be able to tell at a glance which is which, by the colour of the funnel. I just wish that the Cobalt Blue one was also available on Amazon too?! - here's hoping!

This little bird is almost too pretty to bury in a pie, but it nice and solid, I'm sure it will hold up to heat in the oven. Well packed by Amazon for safe delivery.
