I suppose one could email the photos to the general contact for the company and see if they respond.

Though I guess that takes the fun out of the enterprise!

But a very good idea if we ever want to know what they are!

I agree.

 

Fun is Fun

 

but Ive noted the Lunch Ladies should have taken more pics.

 

the Ovals Stacked  etc.

 

not that they would do something like that

 

on purpose 

This particular lunch lady thought she had done a much better job on the pictures!

I think its a multi-purpose grater.      Cheese, tomato coulis, bread crumbs, what have you.    it may be one of those "jack of all trades, master of none" gadgets.

 

ETA, on our way home from the country, we pass a kitten rescue facility with fabulous thrift shop.     So several times a month, we cull such oddments from both town and weekend accumulations.     Good cause and occasional relief in cupboard space.    But we seem to "leave one, buy one" from their always fascinating stock.

Found this in a drawer - can't recall what I bought it for - would like to figure out what it is before I put in the charity box.

I have an old one that I have used for grating Jaggery since the 1970s.  And oddly enough, I have used it a lot for grating the very hard Mexican chocolate!

Seems to be very dangerous to use to grate any hard food.

 

Not trying to be gross, but ----- is it a  Food file or foot file?

I suspect that the one I took pictures I would remove a lot more foot than callus
