Culinary Curiosity Exhibition

Not sure if this belongs under tools, but thought this was a good place to put the link to this on-line exhibition.

Great exhibition!

Say what you will about kitchen gadgets today, they've certainly been around a very long time!

I got 100%, but that only makes me a good guesser. :-)

Thanks for the great link CWS!

I know where I'll be wasting some of my time.

I actually have a Slice-a Slice Bread Slicer. Culinary Curiosity - The Mel and Janet Mickevic Collection

Never used it and probably never will but it was neat seeing it and the Patent drawings are now copied and printed.

Could have used the Humbug Cutter at Christmas.

The Folding Lunch Box is cool and I liked this line in it's description.

"This lunch box folded into a compact, flat form that could fit into a schoolboy's back pocket—for protection when a poor report card might result in a father's spanking."

I actually tried this with rocks once, but after that my mom switched to a wooden spoon...
