We are getting new carpets and I was cleaning out my closet to get ready and found this in the back of the shelf. Can any of you tell me what it is?
I did a Google image search. Came up with zip. Must be a rare and valuable artifact from your past.
Congratulations! You are the proud owner of an Ichendorf “Cilindro Double-Walled Oil Drizzler”…
Something used in Breaking Bad ?
You nailed it and Google failed.
Thank you. I didn’t have a clue about what it is.
No worries – I googled for “double walled glass pourer” and got lucky.
It looks like a naked thermos.
I can’t think of any practical reason why an oil drizzler would need to be a vacuum flask, so I assume it’s just meant to look cool.
Correct… just overpriced kitchen accessories.
You could fill it with hot syrup and then the double wall would be needed so you didn’t burn your hands!
I don’t actually like my syrup to be hot, but one restaurant we go to did it this way and it was always a touch warm to pick up
I had thought it more scientific than gourmet, It is apparently for adding oil or oil and vinegar to your salad. I have made a bit of glass on the glass lathe but while I did a lot of double wall and more I never thought of doing that. My Sake warmer that I made on the lathe was the most complex though I do not know what happened to it.
Not good for EVO storage, light and air are enemies of Olive Oil. Great for presentation, but not long term storage. Soy sauce might do well long term. Needs a cap though. YMMV…
It’s on the shelf behind davidgal2’s double walled oil drizzler!
Definitely not a vacuum flask - tis decorative only. The world would be a sad place if every item was strictly utilitarian.
Looked up that link and it seems like it has zero usage.
Like the 3D print of a ball inside a box.
Just did it to show his skills?
Fill the inner one with colored water and use it as a conversation piece.
In Edo Japan it was illegal to make things that way until it became normal sensibility. I always considered Bauhaus a huge step backwards over that issue.
Could be a nifty flower vase with the spout removed. . .
The truth is out there…
When she was a teen, and wanted to see if she could do wood-working like our Grandpa did, my sister hand-carved a ball in a frame - so that it rattles around but can’t get out. It’s totally useless, and so frickin’ cool. My folks still have it in their curio cabinet…4 decades later
I’d be tempted to drill a couple tiny holes so you could fill the outer one with a coloured liquid too - then switch out matching/contrasting/complimentary inner colours as the mood hits!
