What are some items that you may not run across in a kitchen anymore?

The home kitchen is a place that you can find quite a few different items.  Over the years, there have been many items that have fallen out of favor for one reason or another.  It could be that a better version of an item that came out previously or it could be that a manufacturer introduced a completely new method to cook, chill or store an item.

What are some items that you may not run across in a kitchen anymore?

Butter Churns—this is a device that takes cream and turns it into butter.  There are several different types that you will find on the market—the first has a plunger inside that goes up and down while another is a hand crank that is attached to paddles on the inside.  I have also seen a barrel type that is on a stand that turns a good amount of cream.

Crockery Pots—this item is for storage and it comes in a wide variety of sizes that could easily be stored on a table or shelf to one that holds several gallons.  You can find them usually with a number on them on how much they can hold.  This item was slowly phased out with metal and eventually plastic replacing them.

Cream Separators—this device does what the name says—it separates the cream from the milk.  This device was seen quite a bit on a farm in the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s.  Milk is now separated in industrial dairies.
