We picked this up for $4.00 from an older lady who did not want to keep lifting it into her truck. We tried different things inside of it but you could not fully see it so we decided to use it in our kitchen for utensils.

I like to use crocks too or old bean pots.

peasmom writes: Oooh, that is wonderful! I'm not sure why you would need to press lard unless you were actually making it, but then you would want to smush out all the extra yucky stuff, like the oils. These were actually sort of like a grinder or a press...you could push fruit through it, or lard, or even stuff sausage with it. Aren't you glad you asked? :-)

oldnews writes: My first thought as well, was to wonder why anyone would have a need to press lard?! But it is definitely a wonderful old find, and certainly worth 4 dollars! It's cool! Posted: 5:28 pm on March 26th
