I would appreciate any input as to the use of this skillet. The rough part is tilted downward to the area where the actual cooking is, I think so anyway.

It is made in Norway, and I have googled and regoogled to no avail. God blee you..j

It is made by Hackman in hoyang norway on the back. This is about all that I have been able to see with a good magnifying glass. Thanks for the note. God bless you.

I think it is a skillet,where you can continually cook meat with the butter or oil after it has caramelized.
The grippers hold the meat in place to keep it from sliding into center of pan and soaking grease up.
You tilt the pan toward the meat and spoon your oil or grease over it,which then runs back into the well of center.
It keeps it from overcooking!

Most chefs just tilt their skillets down,pushing meat to top of pan.

I'm thinking that's what it is,but I'll help research

That sounds like it could be. If you do find out more please inform me, and again, thanks and God bless you.

Some progress, it is called a wing pan. Frustration upon frustration, I still do not find its actual use.

I even obtained this photo, but no escription. The photo was on e/Bay. and they were out of stock.

Godsgirl, thank you for this information. I had an idea it was for cooking something in this manner, but not certain at all about it.
In the photograph, I see the bacon is probably cooked first allowing the oil to build and then the egs in the drippings, but this too will take somestudy. God bless you. You certainly are His girl.

Well, I found this:

I'm in the U.S. so that may affect my searches for "wing pan"..... mostly keeps trying to give me recipes for chicken wings (also just called "wings")
I kept getting the same, chicken wings, recipes for them and, of all things, wingspan, lots of airplaines. lol

One use for this odd-vall frying pan picture here below.

It seems any skillet would do for this, however I see how the "wing" would help keep all at a good serving temp.

That would probably work quite well.
I usually cook those on a crisping tray.
It's interesting to see how much juice/fat/liquid drips off those little sticks.
