Okay, this might be a little off the wall. i got to talking about stuff with my mom, and she told me that she bought me some ramekins, and she was telling me that the clerk didn't know they were called ramekins. So I got to thinking, where does the name come from, like what I mean is why are the called ramekins instead of like sauce dishes ??, just curious.

Doug.........The two most common things in the universe are hydrogen and stupidity !The two most common things in the universe are hydrogen and stupidity !post #6 of 137/24/03 at 6:54amThread StarterGood point Doug, although I've never heard the term monkey dish before please enlighten me., I guess it's sort of like the term sauterne, what's that all about ??. and also at work when somebody says steam kettle, they're refering to the huge soup pot hooked up to the steam source, but at home a steam kettle is what you boil to make a cup of tea.post #7 of 137/24/03 at 7:10ampost #8 of 137/24/03 at 8:26ampost #9 of 137/24/03 at 9:02ampost #10 of 138/1/03 at 6:49pmpost #11 of 133/15/13 at 12:06pm
Origin of the name "Buffalo Chopper:"
Further evidence, from the National Provisioner, Sep. 26 1908 (click image for full context):
"A Buffalo chopper is also known as a food cutter. It is a commercial machine used to chop meat, vegetables, bread etc. It gets its name because the first food cutters made in the US were made by the [John E.] Smith Company in Buffalo. These machines had both the Smith name and Buffalo, NY cast into the support pieces for the machine. Buffalo was larger and more prominent lettering, hence the name "Buffalo CHopper." Just like 'Buffalo Wings,' no buffalo—just the location where they became famous.
"The origin of the name of the Buffalo Chopper food processing machine is in doubt. While some people claim its name is derived from its shape, others claim that the first machines were used in Buffalo, New York. Still, other people say that the Buffalo Chopper got its name because it was used originally to process tougher meats, and buffalo certainly falls into that category. While the origin cannot be authenticated, the use of the Buffalo Chopper is widespread today."post #12 of 133/15/13 at 7:41pmpost #13 of 133/15/13 at 7:47pm
So I did a little research:
Numerous legends have developed around the salamander over the centuries, many related to fire. This connection likely originates from the tendency of many salamanders to dwell inside rotting logs. When placed into a fire, the salamander would attempt to escape from the log, lending to the belief that salamanders were created from flames — a belief that gave the creature its name.
