Mystery Gadget

Can anyone guess what this is? I found it far back in a drawer before a kitchen renovation a few years ago. The brand name stamped at the top is Wolfmerman's. This hand-me-down came along when I left home in 1990.

Sorry About the Focus - a Tricky Tool to Photograph
Can you make out the plastic hinges to either lower side? It opens up. But first, you put the tines through your English muffin (I wonder what these muffins are called across the pond - Keith, my friend, a little help here? ~grin~).

Photographing food attractively is an art that eludes me
Be sure to slide the bread on far as possible. Then you pull apart the tabbed plastic handles.

Magic!
I learned it's called the Muffin Master (nice alliteration!) and is still available today. The tool definitely makes separating these muffins easier. Just be sure to wash off the blueberry stickiness afterward.

Happy muffin mastering!

    1. I do plan on doing the challenge but have all ready started another musically based one, cheating with the same format. But I'm doing very different music, at least. My favorite OC would be better with kitchen gadgets as his father is a world famous chef. ~grin~ Thank you for stopping by, my dear!

  2. Cool. Not that I'd ever use one, but that must make opening up English muffins so much easier.

    1. Never? Probably because you're too busy to wait for a toaster. ~grin~ You rock. It really is handy.

  3. I guessed it was an egg cutter! This is far more interesting!

    1. I can't believe I commented instead of replying again. Anyway, that was a good guess! We bought a second egg slicer after I broke my first one. Some clever TV food science guy said they could also be used to slice raw mushrooms. Wrong!

  5. Well how neat that is. I have never had one or even knew it was around. Sometimes a lot of those kitchen gadgets work great and sometimes not so much. That looks to work great. Enjoy one of those muffins for me! Thanks for coming to visit me at the Blog....have a great day.

  6. I actually missed this post, but after you mentioned it on my blog I answered on your latest offering! I have never seen or heard of this instrument of torture!

    1. You rock, my friend. I was thinking of it as torture, too. I appreciate your answer that the English muffin is just a 'muffin' in the UK. It makes sense. Cheers!
