We are starting a series of Blog posts about the strange and esoteric tools and gadgets that come to us while we are out searching far and wide for our supply of vintage cookware.

From the Pineapple-eye-cutter, to the cream-dipper these are things that are either unnecessary, obsolete or perhaps just a forgotten favorite that has fallen out of style.
Some of these are just neat gadgets of yesteryear.

What will future denizens of the kitchen think of the garlic press?

Some are just an ingenious way to solve a not so big problem, like how to poach three eggs at the same time.

Look for the posts coming up, and please send us pics of your favorite out-dated tools for the kitchen.
