Found this in a box of kitchen tools at my local thrift store. Couldn't resist design or ninety nine cent price but have no idea what its intended use is.

    My vote is for a egg yolk separator.

      It's an egg yolk separator. Ideal for those who don't want to touch the goo.

        Yup - egg separator/whisk. You can still buy them:

        Hmmm.... I say it's a dipper for the fryer.

          The verdict is in, egg yolk separator, now I'll have to find a recipe to use it. Thanks fellow hounds.

            I just noticed that there's a video for separating eggs yolks right next to your post... :)
