Help identifying a cooking tool?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I'll apologize upfront - I have very limited detail, but I'm hoping it might be just enough for someone to identify a cooking tool I have in mind for someone as a Christmas gift.

 

OK, here we go …   so, I saw it on some TV show, I don't remember the show or the channel, only that it was a female presenter.  The tool is something that is used over a stove top - a metal rack or grate of some sort with a long handle.  It had a name that I couldn't pronounce, French or Italian?   I can't even remember what she was cooking on it.    I'd never seen or heard of it before here in the US either out or on TV. At the time when I looked for it online I did find it, but I recall there weren't many sources for it.

 

This is a little ridiculous and a long shot I know, I only remember when I saw it I said to myself, "Oh.. you should remember that come Christmas!"     Lesson learned.    

 

Thanks for your time,

KLB

I have one but mine is cast iron , its a cast iron grill , with a handle made to be heated on the stove top used for grilling , mine can be used for anything just not fish.

I got one of those, too

 

however

"used over a stove top"

 

all the "schufft" dripping out onto the burners?

not likely to happen in my indoor kitchen.....

 

spatter shield, anyone?

stove top smoker mayhaps?, had one many moons ago that had a basket like thing for fish, chicken wings etc.

 

When you do finally find it, and I know you will, please let "us" know.

 

 

Good luck,

It actually doesnt splatter.... because you use it for grilling ( so you dont drown it in oil ) , its practical for people who dont have the advantage of outdoor grilling , lets say if you live in an apartment perhaps.....

 

Of course though , you can also cover it <_< because it comes with a cover so no it doesnt splatter on the stove. 

This is just my tool , some may splatter mine does not :P

pretty much anything I've grilled may or may not have spattered.

 

however comma virtually everything I've grilled "drips"

 

grilling is not a candidate for indoor "stove top" activity.

 

putting a spatter shield under a grill basket is,,,, well,,, useless.

 

there is another device with a handle and odd ball looking grate. 

typically called a spatter shield.

KLB, how original to give a UCO (Unidentified Cooking Object) as a Christmas present! Surprise it will be.

 

Just for fun;

1. A "diffuseur de chaleur", mainly used under tajines on gas burners, but also under any other stoneware cooking pots,  to spread the heat over a larger surface so the pot doesn't burst?  Comes in many flavors, don't know the English word. "Heat diffuser" or so would be appropriate.

 

 

2. Antique cast-iron waffle iron originating from my country. Quite tricky to find one, my grandma used one of these 50+ years ago on her coal stove, after removing a few of the rings that closed the stove. Such good memories.
