Do you use it for lowering into the oil--and then releasing the piece? I assume for fish? Other?

Yes, for fish. The need to be gentle. Could be not just frying, but poaching as well. It seems they are always quite curved.

Anyone ever have fin and haddie? Poached smoked something....haddock? in milk. some of these old mom's makings are never seen again.
