I have used one of these for over 25 years and it is still going strong. Not sure if my Mom still has hers, but it did it's duty for the time I was around.

LOL Julie, we are taking about soups. like potato or carrot. To make a smoothie, I will use my regular blender and it is about the same age.

You wrap waffle cookies around it to make ice cream cones.

It can also be used in a chinoise (a cone shaped strainer) to push foods through the strainer.

And we have a winner.

It is a Krumkake cone roller.

Thank you for the win! I actually do have something in mind that might stump one or two of you. I will try to remember to take a picture of it tonight when I get home. I just don't have all that many single purpose pieces of equipment in my kitchen. For day to day cooking at least, I find I don't need much more than a knife and a wooden spoon!

My wife made me promise to bury her with her two Cuisinarts. A big one and a mini. One or the other is used several times a week here. Did I mention I need to go on a diet?

Of course, if I go first, I will buried with a Dremel and my trusty EA6B. Oh, and my Swiss Army knife.

I would bequeath my Swiss Army Knife to my son (or Grandson if there is one at that point).

One Christmas I bought my wife the ultimate Cuisinart. The big stainless one with all the options. She never took it out of the box. It's still in the pantry.

@Bill - I am surprised to hear that Ann likes her mini-Cuisinart. I had a mini for a short time and found it to be annoying. Too much washing for simply chopping one onion... I do like my big Cuisinart though. I am on my second one! And as for weight gain, I've put 60 pounds on Eric in the 20 years I've known him. I challenge Ann to top that!!!

@John - Not to a daughter or to a granddaughter?

I'm with you, Janice! I LOVE my standing mixer!!! Very few appliances get to stay out on my kitchen counter top permanently, but that (and my Cuisinart) are there to stay!



Ok cooking friends, I purchased this wicked implement of torture in 1989 and it has served me well over the years.
Sometimes I even travel with it, but never in my carry-on luggage!!!

What is its purpose and how does it work?

Oh and I love your gold pumpkin. I have a few that didn't fully ripen in time so I painted them gold also.

Oh but there's a whole story there. The pitch, tooth, hook, set and kerf all tell a little bit about what it's made for.

Thank you. I wish I could take credit for that, but a family friend brought it to our annual family Halloween party as a hostess gift. She is very clever.

If nobody guesses correctly in a day or two, I will post a close-up picture as a hint.
