Not sure what we have done wrong? When I looked there was a 11085 and VW Bobier posted 11086. When I looked last night there was no 11085! Cant remember who posted it, it was a leafy plant and there was a comment about it not being what it looked like. Was it deleted?

If there is some other problem could you let us know?

Nothing wrong on your end.11085 left and should have been reposted. Nuff said.

I've already stumped nearly half the regular guessers in the Mystery Kitchen Tool contest, and it is only a matter of time before I stump the rest.

You posted pics of chains that you use in the kitchen for whatever purpose. That IMO does not make them kitchen tools per se. If they indeed qualify as kitchen tools, then I could post a picture of a normal carpenters hammer, claiming I use it in my kitchen, and ask for what purpose.

I could be wrong, but I thought that thread was meant for real kitchen tools, and not anything that anyone could use in the kitchen. How can anyone guess what someone else using chains for in the kitchen? Or a hammer, or two nails?

I'd say that game has gone over the hill now.

When I first moved into my home some 32 years ago and had no appliances yet, I used my electric drill with a bicycle spoke chucked into it and bent so I could use it as a mixer.......

Exactly, but that didn't make it a regular kitchen tool, and IMO would not make it qualify in the kitchen tool thread. I've used many strange non kitchen related things too, in my kitchen for cooking purposes, but they does not qualify as kitchen tools either, and would not belong in the thread in question.

How on Earth could one expect that anyone could guess what you and I use non kitchen type tools for, in the kitchen?

But guys ....

You need to spend more time in cooking supply shops. I have seen many "common place" items there, labelled for a specific kitchen use, and the price increased accordingly. I will give Angela a chance to prove this was at least sold as a kitchen tool - even if I could use it to improve tire traction on my snow blower.

BTW, I have used kitchen tools in the workshop many times (don't tell my wife!) but that doesn't disqualify them as kitchen tools.

Well, if those chains were actually sold as kitchen tools, which I doubt until I see an actual place where they are sold as kitchen tools, then I agree that they can belong in that thread, otherwise not.

The dog chains were not sold as kitchen tools. I purchased them in the pet aisle of our local supermarket. But I do use them exclusively in my kitchen and they are permanently stored in my kitchen with my pastry baking equipment.

When I posted those pictures I was thinking that something that I use exclusively for cooking is a "cooking tool", and thereby permissible.

If I have violated the rules, I apologize. If the majority feel that picture should not have counted, I will be very careful in the future to stick to more traditional kitchen devices.

Sounds like a kitchen tool to me. Unlike something dragged in from the workshop from time to time.

How the heck could a pet chain be considered a kitchen tool, even it it's used for whatever purpose exclusively in the kitchen.

In that case I could have the thread going for years with example a pin I use exclusively in my kitchen, and always stay in my kitchen drawer, to from time to time clean the metall mesh filter in my dish washer. Nobody would ever be able to guess what I use the pin for, unless I told them. But if that's the way the game is to be played, let's just hope that I do not win the game anymore....

Kitchen tools doesn't exclusively mean tools for cooking, so the field will be open to anything used in the kitchen then.

Come on, this is getting ridicolous.

Sniff times four or five. Life got in the way. Of course I knew the chain thing and the other antiques
@ Sten-Arne, the point is to stump us. Then post hints. I know you say you are old and crumpy, but I am not sure, that is true.
Thank you Carlos, I love this thread, just wish, you would be here more.
