Mystery kitchen objects
My daughter found these two metal disks stored in her kitchen cabinet. (See photos.) Do any of you recognize them? I feel like the detective in a mystery -- there's always a line about "something was playing at the edge of my memory but I couldn't quite get it into focus".. Anyone?

as the set included metal cups to fit the holes.(Brilliant, I know) There are two pans that the disc fits into. The other one, I could never figure out. Still have the set after 35 years.
I think idli is a distinct possibility!

As for "not remembering"
Some kitchen gadgets seem to spontaneously generate. If you look in guy's tool box, you'll find little shafts of screw drivers without a handle..which have no purpose and no one remembers purchasing them they seem to shed their handles occasionally before moving to junk drawers and tool boxes. And no one remembers a screw driver in the middle phase of losing it's shaft.
In most kitchens, a drawer or cabinate left alone long enough will spontaneously generate a egg slicer or mushroom slicer; which no one will remember purchasing.
There is a theory that this could be part of the life cycle of migratory socks and coat hangers and such anomalies are simply camouflage to change their appearance and to Puzzle humans and continue with a happy home in a drawer.
There is another theory...that any pantry left alone long enough will generate a can of beets.
I'm not sure if the other thing is related..but could be a steamer insert.
Also,the one on the left looks like something you should always fly with because if you ever ended up on a desert island, it could work really well in setting up a shower head :-}
