No guesses at all? I can pretty much guarantee that most people have had exposure to, or seen, a device that serves the same purpose as this. People have been searching for a better way to do what this does for a long, long time. This one is pretty ingenious.

It looks like there is some heat involved because it has ventilation, but not too much heat because it is wooden...

There is ventilation, but not because of heat.

The lower metal part on the left is removable.

I would think it is some sort of food dehydrator.

It is none of these things. Something does end up in the bottom part. If you're eating it, you might want to sign up for Survivor.
