A friend sent these pics in an email.
Does anybody know what it is.
It was packed away in her late mother-in-laws boxes along with pots and pans (but may not necessarily be a kitchen item).
It appears to be stainless and approximately 8" X 8" and prongs are about 3-1/2" tall.
Prongs aren't sharp enough and spaced appropriately to put whole potatoes on them, but who knows?

Any ideas?
(keep it clean Odie & Dan. LOL)

Cooling stand, manual swiss cheese maker, pot holder maker frame thingy, the two shorter prongs have me stumped, the hole may be to hang it up, measuring cup holder.

Grumpy,

Is it heavy for its size? or light, like Aluminum? if its Aluminum then I'll change my vote to Potato cooker, since it has some stains on it, might have already been used for some nice baked potatoes, since aluminum is used a lot for its heat transfer, would cook em faster.

THAT I CAN ANSWER FOR YOU! I was just recently working a job where we used those. That, grumpy is a prefabbed form of rebar (aluminum in this case) that when you are putting up forming walls you nail those up inside the wall before the pour. you nail it up in that centre hole then you run the horizontal rebar thru it. Once the concrete is poured and hard and the forming is removed you can only see the flat backside of it. reason for it? Its used to reinforce joints for specific things. In my case we reinforced walls to connect, install, and support prefabbed staircases. Not aluminum in that case though.
