Exclamation Strange kitchen tool

Hello all,

I have found this little tool hidden in a drawer in my grandparents house. My grandparents however also could not remember what it exactly is.
In the picture it is opened: you can close it again (you can see it in the middle).
It seems a tool to put something in and then squeeze it, but it seems a bit strange for a garlic press (the handles are rather short so you can not apply a lot of force).
You do see the "bobbles" in it, so it does seem something to squeeze, but I am not sure exactly for what it was made.
There is also not a lot of information on it: it just says "Prestige I8-8 stainless rostfrei-inox"

Any clues what it might be?

I don't see any picture either.

And, welcome to the forum Biotech.

Ditto here. Just a box with an X placeholder, no picture.

I right-clicked on the little square and was able to open it and copy the image. It does look like some kind of squeezer, and you mentioned it closes - maybe for lemons? Hard to tell without seeing some depth to it. Welcome to DC!

Hi and welcome to Discuss Cooking

It looks sort of like this lemon juicer for a bar.

Yeah, I think that's what it is too GG.

It's amazing how many silly gadgets can accumulate in drawer. Imagine needing a gadget to squeeze a lemon wedge?


Welcome. Thanks to you and Cheryl for the interesting post.

I was wondering if it was for use at the table, when someone might not want to get lemon juice on their fingers.
