Dear Kitchen, I bought this cute little birdie on eBay; it was listed as a garlic press, but I'm certain that isn't what it supposed to be. Its real purpose evades me. Does anyone know what this little birdie is for? - Ana up close and in action here. It keeps your fingers clean, and it also keeps that citrus juice from getting into any cuts you might have on your hands. It's definitely a one-use sort of tool, but it's so cute I want one now too!
