Trivia question

What kitchen technology found in many modern American kitchens may be traced to old weapon technology?

I'm not asking about radar & microwave. I mean centuries old.

The answer better be firearms-related or you'll have to warn yourself and close your own thread ...

Well,casting balls uses a little iron pot and a ladle,but I keep lead out of my cooking.
I thought about a coffee grinder,nah. Funnel for cleaning?Nah.

How about a corkscrew?Trying to pull a ball? Not saying your average corkscrew will work well as a worm..but

It's not the appliance but the military innovation the appliance uses.

Unfair, I have never had a need for a mixer; nor have I ever used one.

Using hot soapy water in a metal pot, plus...boiling water from a pan, in order to clean black powder rifle bores in the kitchen.

Using left over bear grease from the cooking, so as to lube bullets.
