Macro Monday again, folks, and here I am with yet another incomprehensible easy puzzle for you!
This time it’s something that lives in my kitchen, and is hardly ever taken out of it. Certainly not everyone has these things, but we have several and they get used quite regularly. Personally, I can’t remember how I managed without them!
They’re usually made of metal, though I have seen them in other materials, and I should tell you that though there’s a warm cast in this picture, the metal here is actually silver in colour. Does that help?
These are quite specialised, I suppose … however, most people do have one or two which do the same job, even if they are a different size or a different shape. And perhaps other people’s will do it in a slightly different way. Quicker, slower, more, or less thoroughly …
Anyway, if you don’t have one yourself, I imagine you’ll have seen them in use, or perhaps on sale somewhere, because they’re not that unusual.
I checked this one with OH, who usually takes a look once I’ve posted and says things like ‘Well, that’s just cruel!’. This time he knew the answer right away, so a good number of you will probably guess this one correctly. I hope so!
If you need it, there’s a second picture here.
As usual, check in tomorrow for the solution, which I will add at the bottom of this post in the form of a picture link, with further explanations in the comments below.
Thanks for playing!
OK – here we are on Tuesday evening, and the answer is here! I’m very happy to see that so many of you guessed this one right! Babs was the first, and was absolutely spot on, guessing not only the item, but the number of them too! Well done, Babs – and well done the rest of you, too!
First (non-existent) prize for most amusing comment goes to Teresa, I think, for ‘a device to electrocute people’. She knows perfectly well I don’t have one of those, so I’m assuming this is just wishful thinking. JD and Granny Grimble also made me laugh, so they take second and third on that one – thanks, ladies!
Come back again next week and see what I have for you. It’s all ready and waiting …
