Here is the quiz:

Gizmo quiz [146.82.73.177]

It isn't a gadget, but I think it will make a good quiz anyway. Give me the name of this stuff.

It looks like a hi-tech gas burner.

Is there flame or heat involved?

Those look like threads around the outer edge. Does something cover this up when its in use?

Oil is usually a component of it, they aren't threads, just part of a container. In most applications it would be contained.

I don't believe it would fall under being a nano-polymer.

There is a small component, but I don't think it is small as nano.

After a good few vodkas, a damn fine curry and a couple of glasses of wine (hic - it's half past midnight here in London town ;-))

Does it relate to cookery?
