What in the Heck?
Episode 4: A New Heck
This object has a purpose. A single, sole purpose. It is a unitasker ... GASP! In my kitchen? A Unitasker? What's that you say?
This object is aluminum. It's very light, and about the length of a pencil. That's all the clues I can give you. Let's not forget that this is a food site, so you'll know that the above object is not a tent stake.
Just what in the heck is it? First person to answer correctly is therefore deemed the winner and is entitled to the honors thereof. Which happen to be jack.
Hey Y'all .... This one still hasn't been answered. The title of knowledge master is still up for grabs! If I haven't received an answer by Wednesday, I'll let G-dub answer.
Also, I have some exciting news coming about future editions of What in the Heck? Seems Tom may just get his wish.....
DONNA IS THE WINNER! Yes, this is an aluminum potato skewer. You stick it right down the center of a potato which helps to heat it from the inside as you bake it.

I'm disqualifying myself, 'cos I got one right the other day, but I have four of these in stainless. They're all designed as unitaskers, but I wind up pulling them out of the drawer for other jobs that I will not describe 'cos it might give it away.
My mother's version is worse, 'cos it's got four on one foldable piece and can't be used for even the other tasks that I use mine for. Plus hers can only be used standing up.
Boy, don't that just sound real bad.
You're my shining star, G-dub.
That looks suspiciously similar to what I'd call "poultry skewer".
When are these contests going to start involving tangible rewards?
Not a poultry skewer. It is a skewer of sorts, but the question is ... for what and for what purpose? Mediate upon this ... we will.
No, not corn. That'd be kind of weird ... trying to pick up a piping hot metal skewer to eat your piping hot corn. Keep trying.
I think I saw one of these on my last visit to the urologist.
I think it is put into a potato for baking, and the heat from the thing cooks the potato faster.
Perhaps a key to open a large sardine can?
I don't think so, Nickie, it's the size of a pencil, 7.5 inches.
