Anyone found other uses for a fish poacher?

I love my fish poacher, but I find I only use it a few times a year. I'm curious if anyone has thought of innovate ways of using it? I'd love to drag it out more often than I do.
Depending on size,I have several,all old to very old and beautiful,like you I was tired of the one trick pony.
As a water bath,oven for pate and puddings,stove top,hold warm (?) In the oven,bake large,double and triple loaves of bread or giant roles,meat loaf,wild duck and goose.
So many are too pretty to store away.All of mine are 50+ year old copper with some lovely details you just don't often.
I have one just too big,31",uber thick copper,HEAVY with two lids,one copper for cooking and one silver for serving at the fireplace with kindling.
I have been pining for a cast iron one specifically for use as a bread cloche for batard shaped loaves. If yours is heavy gauge anything, it might works for this purpose
