What is the oldest item in your kitchen that you still use?

I was making egg salad this morning using an egg slicer that was my mother's. I would estimate it to be between 50-60 years old, and I use it all the time for things like egg salad, potato salad and slicing mushrooms. I once bought a new one that could eggs cut in slices as well as quarters, but it broke quickly, and I went back to my old warhorse. Though I have other bits and pieces from my mother's kitchen, the only other item I really use is an equally old butter dish. It has a glass plate and a lid of embossed aluminium. My husband really doesn't like it, but he has learned to live with it.

Do you have any old family items that you still use?
