No, not even close to what it is. I think the design is throwing people off track.

I'll wait a bit longer for the first clue.

banana storage?


No, it's much much too small to hold a banana. Maybe if you slice a banana, you could find room for one or two thin slices.

Ok keeping with the Jaws theme, is it safe to go into Your Kitchen?

What's this gadget called, and/or, what is its purpose?

Now then, maybe something a bit more difficult I hope. Despite looking to be from the last century, or even older, this tool is still used in some parts of the world. Very much kitchen related.

What is it? What do you use it for?

Bonus for the name.

Being in East LA or little TJ, it is a common item. I'll disqualify myself, but leave that as a hint.

Well, one might call it that, but what kind of mixer? It's for stirring or whisking some particular stuff.
