“Old Kitchen Kettle” from Ambrose #1 CDN275A by Ambrose Leslie Saroney.

Every cook that I know loves kitchen gadgets. I certainly do (see my post of 9/19/2013, ‘Got Gadgets?‘)

So now, for your amusement and delight, I feature some photos of ‘vintage’ kitchen gadgets. If you can figure out what they are, you’re a better cook than I am (or a lot older!) Just for fun, send me your answers (I already know them, but I had some help from ‘300 Years of Kitchen Collectibles’ by Linda Campbell Franklin. The following photos are from her book:

Final question: has anyone ever heard of an ‘Egg Detector’? Thanks to Linda Campbell Franklin, I now know what it is! Hint: it’s not like a truffle detector (aka pig).
