Is it some sort of hot plate to keep food warm? I'm thinking heat coming up through the holes rather than liquid draining down.

There is another kitchen tool that needs to be used in conjunction with this one, but this is not a part of something larger.

As far as I can tell, the holes are not a useful feature. If made now, it would likely be made out of clear plastic instead of metal.

Does the other side of the metal with the holes resemble a grater?
