I'm gonna go with gravy separator. The fat rises to the top, so what you pour from the bottom is leaner and better for you. :)
It looks like my gravy separator which is plastic but works great. I'd have snatched that up too as my mom was just saying she could use a separator.
It looks like the cylinders I used in Chemistry lab, way back in the day
Whatever it is, it is super cool! I would have snatched it up too!!
It can be whatever you want it to be!! LOL! The gravy seperator sounds right, but it looks chemistryish.
Maybe I watch too much Breaking Bad, but I'm going with Kristy's chemistry equipment idea. If the Feds come knocking at your door in the night, just tell them you're making gravy and not collecting chemistry equipment. LOL
