Bird Nest or Bird's Nest Fryer  
A device that consists of two small frying baskets, one fitting inside the other. It is used to fry starchy foods, such as fresh noodles or vegetables by placing the food in the bottom basket and pressing the top basket down to flatten the food items and then deep-frying until crispy and golden brown. The result is a fried noodle or vegetable basket in the shape of a birds nest, which can then be filled with other ingredients, such as cooked eggs, meat or poultry. The device, which may also be referred to as a Nest Noodle Fryer or Noodle Bird Nest Fryer, can be used for frying a variety of other foods such as grated potatoes, parsnips or yuca root.
