It is called the Skimmer and it is generally used to skim fat and oil out of what you are cooking - my mom also LOVES to use it to drain out all the yuckies out of oil we fried something with. Well my favorite use for this tool is to get the starch out when boiling potatoes!!!! I just run this thing along the top of the water and voila no starch! Easy Peasy and I love it!!! Keeps the water in the pot and the starch in the tool!
