Oh, my goodness. Pick something from our kitchen? Our kitchen is full of stuff: pots and pans, labour-saving devices (both electric and manual), thing-a-ma-bobs, gadgets, do-dads, whachamacallits, things we use all the time, things we rarely use, things we never use but keep because, well, just because. Do I make it a “Guess what, folks?” or simply a “Show and Tell.”
I decided to do both. First, the “Show and Tell”
And now for the “Guess what, folks?”
Very few people recognize what this “thing” is used for. Here are some hints:
- It is made of cast aluminum
- It is about 70 years old (it was an “accessory” included with a set of WearEver cast aluminum pots and pans my mother had)
- Of all the tools intended to do what this “thing” does — this is the best design ever (in my opinion).

P.S. An addendum to Dr. B’s Camera Challenge #7: Bridges — I finally found my photograph of the concrete bridge over Pinto Creek that flowed (when there was water in it) on the south side of my home town, Meyronne. The bridge was built in 1929 just before the Depression and the Dirty Thirties blew in. Eventually, farm machinery grew too huge to cross the bridge so it was torn down and replaced by a boring steel bridge over not-so-mighty Pinto Creek.

Thanks Margaret, interesting story about the bridge. No photos of you on it? 😂 We have an ancient stone toll bridge in our village for traffic over the Thames, it needs repair every 5 years! Young folks still walk along the stone edge and jump into the river in the summer.
My guess for your mystery gadget would be a press of some kind, not sure what for …. mashed potato maybe?
Sounds like a lovely bridge. I hope there’s another way across the Thames when it undergoes repairs. As for the mystery gadget, you are close. It is a juice press — cut an orange/lemon/lime in half, lift the handle, put the cut side down on the grate, and squeeze the handle down. The juice flows into the bottom of the juicer. Works like a charm.
What a wonderful press! They don’t make them like that anymore do they? Margaret, your spunk is showing in the tale of that bridge! Great post! Cady
Thanks. I did have a reputation back then.
Great bridge story Margaret! What’s the cutie chicken for — is it a salt cellar?
It is a timer. You can see the minutes marked around the bottom. We discovered it is not entirely accurate but, as I said, it was too cute to toss into the thrift store box.
Ah of course….. my attention was immediately drawn to the eye – which I assumed was a hole, and I looked no further!

Love the knife…..no wonder you use it every day. My curiosity got the best of me for the “guess what”….it must be a juicer? I had to look it up! Hope all is well with you and Roger, these days. A

You got it! And we’re find for the shape we’re in.
Love that bridge story! Girls with spunk are the best. As with everyone else I also thought it was some kind of juicer.
Thanks. I had a reputation as tom girl, one of my Grade 4 classmates even called me “cold-blooded.” I took that as a compliment.
