Household Gadgets From The Past


It’s been several months since I’ve posted a new “Household Gadgets Of The Past” post, in fact this is my third post in a week. This translate to I have been away far too long, and normalcy is welcomed with open arms. I’m not one to air my laundry, just welcoming all good vibes, from awesome people!!

One of the things I enjoy doing is looking for unique household gadgets from yard sales to goodwill stores. I tanked on my recent venture for aged and unique treasures, but my sister Helen didn’t, as she found a mother load of gadgets for me!!

You don’t have to be a wiz in the kitchen, or an expert in antiques or household items past or present. But I am sure there may be one or two of you who will recall seeing an item posted, whether it was in your home, neighbor, or a relative.


If you have a kitchen or household gadget of your own that you would like to share. Just drop me an email with the photo, and description, if you bought it or if it was passed down and I’ll feature it with a link back to your site.


The rules are simple, just answer in the blogs post comment field, the name of what this is, or accurately describe what it does, or purpose.

If no one can guess the item in a week I’ll post a new item and post the answer of what it is.

First person to post the correct answer in the comments section will win one of these books!


It’s all in good fun and remember the rules.
First correct answer in the blog post comment field wins
Just name or give accurate description of what this does….

About Dish With Clarissa

Clarissa Ellis grew up learning to cook with her mom. In a time where traditional home-cooked food was going out of style, Clarissa learned to love and make those simple 'comfort foods' and family favorites. As she grew - and her mom got busier with long work hours, Clarissa supported her mom by taking over most of the cooking duties around the home. By the time Clarissa started high school - she had absorbed her mother's approach to traditional, homestyle Italian dishes; and thanks to So Cal's great weather year round... a love of cooking on the grill. Fast forward 30 years and Clarissa has never stopped cooking. She continued to explore food, learning more from So Cal's amazing cultural variety, trying things out on her family and her friends... and always learning. Never content to merely cook a good meal, Clarissa developed the habit of talking sharing her ideas with family, friends and coworkers. After a lifetime of learning and experimenting, Clarissa's love affair with traditional Italian cooking, and 'comfort foods' has grown into a robust, creative and cross-cultural approach to cooking that still manages to remain 'accessible' to the rest of us. Now Clarissa brings her experience and her approach online through her blog - giving all of us a chance give ourselves, our friends and our family the benefits of a lifetime of passion and joy in cooking simply great meals.
