On the short list of things that work after 100 years is my grandmother’s waffle iron

Husband's grandmother's potato masher. Handheld--both the masher and the camera. Improvised staging; window light (overcast day) and reflector.

Absolutely gorgeous. If only it could talk . . . :-)
I admire how you and your husband have preserved this family heirloom.
The wood craftsman in me also appreciates the subtle elegance of function, form, and beauty in this piece.
Many thanks for sharing!

grizzerbear, thanks for your comments, and thanks for providing this topic. We may have other oldies lying around in the kitchen . . .

Love the waffle iron and the potato masher. I understand now why the WWII German hand grenades were called "Potato Mashers". I have a cast iron corn bread skillet from my grandma that's around a century old ... I will post when I get a chance.

Found in a "free box." We thought this thing of uncertain age was a cheese grater, but it looks like the drawing of a nut grinder in The Joy of Cooking. Whatever its name, it does a good job with hard cheese.

Nice shots of a nice find!
If you google/bing the patent number you'll find all sorts of info about it.
Its a kitchen rotary grinder with a patent filed in 1939.
How cool is that?

In the WWPW thread, Benitoite found the patent filing that corresponds to the second number. Its dates are a little later. https://patents.google​.com/patent/US2502867A​/en (external link)

Wikipedia's page about the inventor (external link)

And the company he founded: Moulinex (external link)
