Hi, I have been coming across some things that I was wondering "if the same five people" might be able to shed some light for its purpose.
First up is this pot that has a rack inside, but I am wondering for what purpose it this removable divider? I just can't think of anything. I've looked up this pot on eBay and nobody has said what the divider is for, just that it has one.
Also, this rack that I found inside a stovetop pressure cooker that I don't think went with it. It seems like a steaming rack but is very flat. I don't know what it originally went to. I used it today to make a Chinese steamed egg in a dish but it sat on the floor of the 24 cm saute pan and I think either the temp was too high being so close or it needs to sit in a 24 cm pan that is rounded at the bottom so it is elevated a little more. The texture seemed good but it had some small bubbles in it and some egg escaped the foil so it probably got too hot. It didn't sit on the bottom of the pressure cooker. But can anyone tell me what was its original purpose?
Then there's this cutting board of sorts, or I don't know what. Is it used to slice pizza evenly? Seems unused.
The last thing I did find out what it was; there was a strange cast iron mold with corncob impressions to be used to make cornbread, I guess.
I'd appreciate anyone's input, including those outside the cookware folks that happen to see this, if they can enlighten me. Thanks!
By the way, I had cleaned up that aluminum rack, but boiling water has made it look all stained. What do you use to get it off? BKF doesn't seem to work on the aluminum. I noticed that with aluminum trays, when I put it in the oven with water and a ramekin, it can look almost blackened. Maybe try vinegar and water soak?
