Q: I was helping my friend unpack his kitchen and he had this strange gadget. He didn't know what it is for. The metal handle thing rotates. Sent by Julie Editor: As usual with these mystery gadgets, we're not entirely sure this belongs in the kitchen at all (remember this dog grooming tool?). Any ideas?
