No, not that either.

I tried to find a pic from a different angle but I couldn't find one that wouldn't give the answer away.

It isn't though...

Another hint: You have to lay something on the tool to make it useful

Could it be that you lay your hand on it to make it sharpen a knife that you put in the side ?

Not an anti-griddle, is it? I would expect that to be flat.

No, it isn't. There are 2 parts on the tool. One part you can take off of the other part and place back on the other part when turned around and then you can use the tool properly.

I was really really struggling there until that last clue had me thinking outside the box. That was a really good one and foxed all of us right up until the end.

Oh dear, bugger, that means I now have to go and find something, I'll rummage down the back of the sofa and see what I can find ..... see ya.

Not in that sense, a mixture of some sort possibly.

Before we go too far, let's make sure dough in the Queen's English matches what dough in American English means.

It isn't just for bread.

It is definitely a cookie press, but on the other side of the pond I think cookies are called biscuits, so maybe Chris would call that tool a "biscuit press".

Looks like something to do with Christmas, angels snowmen stars... Something to churn out (edible) decorations for a Christmas tree?
