Not for cooking, not a steamer.
Electrical and fluid connections.

Hmmmmm. At first glance, I thought it was a coating table, such as they use in the deli at the Mini-Mart down the street. Bins for milk or beaten eggs, and a large center bin for seasoned flour or breadcrumbs. Used to prep chicken or fish for the deep fryer. But that one has no electrical or fluid connections, not even a drain.

Electricity and water are vital to the use of this gadget.

No. Salt is also required. Salty ice would be yuk.

Well, an ice cream maker would need salt, but not a water connection...

Just so you know in future, salty water was used in the process of making ice cream before modern refrigeration. quote from the Guardian.

How was ice-cream made before refrigerators were invented?

THERE IS a good summary in The National Trust Book of Sorbets, Flummeries and Fools by Colin Cooper English (published 1985). Time-consuming and costly, the old-fashioned way was to place the ingredients into a thin drum, which was then sunk into a larger container which held a mixture of ice and salt. Although water freezes at 32F (0C), milk and cream will not freeze until they are down to 20F (-6.7C). The salt melts the ice and produces a brine with a temperature around 17F (-8.3C), and it is this freezing brine which provides the refrigeration.

Interesting. For the gadget in question, it wouldn't work without salt.

So no fresh water exoskeletons?

It's to do with the electricity

Pure water is a very poor conductor of electricity. It takes the minerals and such to conduct.

What an interesting device.

You've completely lost me, then.

For the record, a lot of people still used salt and ice for ice cream after refrigeration. My father bought a maker and we used it once in the 1970s. We made peach. I don't remember if it was any good, but it was a lot of cranking.

Hmmm, and all steel device with electricity and current carrying salty water. As a retired electrical lineman that sounds dangerous. (^8

We made some just last weekend with our White Mountain maker. Rock salt & ice and electric no cranking anymore. They have been around for ever.

Some time ago you said it wasn't "fishy."

I would like to remind you of the term "shell fish."

Now that we are talking about fresh and salt water exoskeletons.



Similar idea, just a bit more final?

You've been right onto it from the start Gary Carpenter. But this is not about fish in any way, in the same way that, for example, snails are not fish ;)
