It looks like it might be a tortilla press, but I've never seen a carved one before.

I was afraid that it would be too eazy. Yes it is a tortilla press. I have a cast iron one but wood was more common when I was a kid. Take it away Angela.

With a bit of luck, this might keep you folks guessing for an hour or so...


What is it called?

What does it produce?

Can we have a clue as to the dimensions. It looks like you pour something into it and then it is heated up by putting it on a heat source. I note the DSC pcture was taken by a personal camera, so I assume you own it?

I do own the set. Dimensions are about 8 or 9 inches in diameter. You do pour something into the containers. The pieces are heated up by putting them into a heat source.

It is a silly little set and truth be told, I have never used it. My mother-in-law picked it up at a tag sale in Wisconsin for the glorious price of one dollar. She gave it to me because she thought I might have fun with it. I do intend to use it some day, but I simply have not gotten around to it yet. Maybe when I retire...

Got it but holding out trying to find that particular brand & model. That is a nice one compared to others I've seen so far.

If anyone else has it go for it.

I'm 85% sure but not totally yet. LOL!

I love cooking and kitchen gadgets both are a 50+ year hobby.

Not a jello mold, although I suppose it could serve as one if needed.

I love that this item has gone 24 hours with only one person 85% sure and not yet hazarding a public guess. For a contest that attracts so many accomplished home cooks, I feel like 24 hours is a pretty good run. If nobody guesses correctly tonight, I will give a clue tomorrow.

Goodnight friends.

I guess water, then something sits on top, then in an oven. But it seems to have three separate compartments. Some sort of steamer?
