Default Fish Fryer or Double Gate Burner

Any help on this? Think it's a fish fryer. Have seen others say it is a double gate burner. The other handle has a "7" by the rim.

It's a sad iron heater made to fit the old wood stoves (or coal stoves). I made the mistake of buying one when I was new to collecting and I thought I had the "find of a lifetime".

Thanks CJ. That is what I originally thought it might be. Looking around the web led me to more confusion.

It can still be used as a griddle. I don't think it's deep enough to use as a fish fryer - at least not for deep frying.

Pans very much like this intended for cooking were termed either "long pans" or "fish fryers" interchangeably, and sometimes had a spout at one corner to facilitate draining cooking grease. But, no, not frying in the deep frying sense.

FYI. Think this might be one of those with the pour spout in the corner mentioned by Doug.

I was certainly used for cooking. Caked with old cooking material. Works well for fajitas and browning meat and throwing right in the oven.
