Sorry about that.




The cast iron kitchen tool has the following functions:

Lid lifter for wood/coal stove.
Damper hook.
Bail lifter for pots with metal bail-type handles, or bail-handled griddles.
Oven rack puller.
Bottle opener. Jug cap lifter.
Pry lever for opening lard cans. (The type with external lid lip that is 1 inch deep.
Wire cinch twister. Heavy wire is looped around a container lid, the two free ends are run through the round holes and the tool is twisted until the wire has been cinched tight. Usually used on a crock to secure a waxed canvas top.
Meat pounder/tenderizer - the exterior ridges on one side.
This is a test of the Emergency Moron System. Had there been a real moron in the room, there would've been a small mushroom cloud in the place where the idiot had been standing.

Thank you!

This is going to be an easy one. Should be answered in minutes, or even seconds.

What is it? The name tells its purpose.

Man, you must have seen one of these in your parents or grandparents home. It is not for spreading something open, on the contrary....

It is/was indeed a very well known kitchen tool. Found in every kitchen, before you could buy what it produces, in today's well known shape or form. It was not that many years ago since it was found in every kitchen.

Clue: "Cone"

Yes Sugar Nipper, or Sugar Cutter.

It's all yours.

Edit: I really thought it would be easier than that, but maybe most here are too young to ever have seen a sugar cone, and sugar cutters/nippers.

It's for weighing and GRADING eggs.

The quality of an egg is determined by the grade of the egg and is not related to size. All eggs are classified according to the U.S. Standards for interior and exterior quality factors. This determines the grade of the egg as AA, A, or B.
