Q: What is this kitchen item? I found it in my mother’s kitchen after she passed. I thought of eggs Benedict or sausage and biscuits, but searching for them gave me no results.

Editor: Hmmm, I can’t say that I’ve ever seen anything like that before. Although my best guess is that it looks like a tool for poaching eggs. My grandparents had an egg poacher, which was certainly different from your tool, but it reminds me of what they had.

Kitchn readers, do you have any idea what Frederick’s mystery kitchen tool might be?
