    Any clue what this is??

    My Mom who is in her 80's has been cleaning out stuff in the kitchen. She found this and can not remember what it is. Anyone know?? We have asked so many people and tried to find it on the web no luck. I figured I would ask you gals. Name:  a.jpg

    Maybe for frosting on a cake - to make waves ? Does that make sense ?

    Looks like something that would be given away at a Tupperware party.. that has some obscure use... like a pumkin seeder.

    I used to have one of those and I wondered the same thing. I even sold Tupperware. And I don't know what it is. I hope you find out.

    Does she have a George Foreman grill? I think something like that comes with the grills for scraping them off.

    Is it "hard" or soft and bendable?
    Could you possible open a jar or bottle cap with it?
    It looks like a bottle top would fit in the hole while your fingers fit in the curves to snap or pull the cap.

    Just a thought.

    Could it be something to clean the grooves of a grill-like surface??

    With the hole in it, it may be for pasta?
    Got fabric?

    I believe it's an artificial foot, for an injured duck.

    I don't know what it is . . . but other than a duck foot, it looks like it'd be good for draining liquid, from a can of veggies.

    Some kind of food mover........chop veggies on a board, use it to shove and scoop up and in to the pan? Just guessing.

    I think you hold onto it with the hole and use it to crimp pie crusts.
    If no one ever experimented we'd all still be making 4 patches.
