Does it remove corn off the cob? I have no idea what this tool is or even if it is a kitchen tool. My friend has one and wants to know.
Thanks, Susan

I can't see a tool Susan!

I can't either, but I have a feeling it has to do with the firewall I'm going through. Me thinks me missing out!

I will try an attachment

Ahhhh.. I see it now! I don't know what the hell that is Susan. Is the looped metal thing flat or round? It kinda looks flat, but hard to tell.

I don't know. My friend sent me the photo and I thought the great minds here would know what it is.

My mind stinks when it comes to cooking... and I know I have some things stashed away in my kitchen that I have no clue what the heck they are for. Not even sure how I ended up with them. But I would be interested in knowing what it is/used for.

I must admit, you got me on this one!

Bueller...Bueller, anyone?!!!

My friend has one of these things and really would like to know what it is.

It looks like a removable pot handle they made years ago. You could actually remove the handle when you put it in an oven then attach it back when needed. I could be very wrong but that is what it reminds me off.

Is it possible that what is shown is but a *part* of a kitchen tool and the other part that would make its use obvious is no longer present ??

You know, Joe, after you wrote that and I looked at it, I believe you could be right. An older lady on my pet list asked me the question after finding it her kitchen and not remembering what it was for. Thanks, I will let Joan know.

I don't know what it is either, but it has a hole in the handle.
Warren could hang it in his kitchen.
