    What is this Second Kitchen Item Found in my Kitchen Drawer Used For?

    When mopping up an egg which broke in my kitchen drawer, this was one of the mystifying utensils I found.

    Any idea what you would use it for?  I think it's something to do with pastry, but not sure

    I hope this is a kind of grater for cutting round hollow pieces of vegetables, particularly onions and potatoes. The white round edge is put on the item and pressure is put from the other edge by pressing and turning the handle circularly. This will produce round rings of onions and potatoes with wide hole in the centre.

      I don't think so - it's plastic and not very sharp

    This is just a guess, but you mentioning pastries sounds right. It could be a roller for crimping the crust whether along the edge of a pie pan or sealing the edges of little individual tarts, etc. It would make a fancy edge and the place where it sticks out further would cut off the excess overhang.

      I think you could be right

    I think it is a ravioli cutter-- seals the pasta pockets and trims a zig-zag edge. (The metal end for opening your beer while making ravioli.)

      Probably not, as I don't make ravioli, but on the other hand, I can see that it would work in the same way as it would on any other pastry. Oh, a thought has just struck me - "pasta" must be Italian for "pastry".  Beer bottle opener sounds good

    I believe it is for sealing a pie shell.

    I think it's a tool for play dough. smile  I googled both pastry wheel cutter and pasta wheel cutter and similar pictures to yours came up.  So I am going to guess it is a "pastry wheel."  I saw pictures with it used to cut homemade lasagna and ravioli noodle (as Rochelle suggested) along with cutting fancy pie crusts such as strips of crust for a lattice design on top of a pie (as Shelia suggested).  However, I did not find a picture with the triangular metal part on the handle as your has. The most similar one I found had a circular shape used for hanging.  Perhaps it is just used to hang the tool?
