What is it?

Here's a question for confirmed cooking gadget guys and gals in blogger land: What is it?

If you know the identity of the object in the photograph, please post your answer in a comment. I'll answer the question in a week or so.

I'll give you a clue. While it's connected to a food device today, it has its origin as a non-food object. For extra credit, can you identify the origin of the device?


  1. I'm guessing a blowout for a steam loco... Ed

  2. It does look like a steam dome, doesn't it Ed?

    But, that's not the right answer.

    One more clue: It's has its origin in the era of steam locomotives.

  3. Great Blog! Can't wait to read more!
