and .bOttOTIIQWQIlS Of the inner container are provided :with a: plurality 10f perforations -7 to permit the;- free icirculation .of fluid trom the outer receptacle to the inner one. Means is provided-atom holding the. inner. receptacle in an.elevated'position -comprising a pair of diametrically opposite upwardly lc onverging guidesatormed by projections on the innenface of the; wallel, each guide embodying a pair of inclined arc-ua-teniembers 8iforme d into a seat 9 at the meeting point or apex thereof andna guard 10 ontheiinner face of wall 1 'overlyinguthe seat 9, as is clearly sh'ownein Fig 2 and-3'.

Continued rotationz of the inner container will cause the pins to ride upon the guide members 8 until the same reach the apices thereof, while the guards 1O prevent accidental disengagement or removal of the inner receptacle from the outer receptacle when the former is sup ported in an elevated position. The inner container may be readily removed from the outer receptacle by disposing the pins 11 laterally of the guards 10 or otherwise.

The utensil is adapted for various-uses, such as cooking or washing clothes, particularly where it is desired to space the contents of the inner receptacle from the walls of the outer container, the perforations of the inner receptacle providing for free circulation of fluid. When the device is used as a cooking utensil, the inner container may be raised to its elevated position and permit water contained therein to drain through the perforations, while, when used to wash clothing, the same operation will cause excess water to be drained off.

While there is herein shown and described the preferred embodiment of the present invention, it is nevertheless to be understood that various changes may be made therein without departing from the spirit and scope thereof.

I claim:

1. In a vessel of the type described, an inner and an outer container, the inner container having a plurality of perforations over the side and bottom walls thereof, upwardly converging diametrically opposite guides on the inner wall of said outer container, and laterally projecting pins carried by said inner container and adapted to ride upon said guides during the elevation of said inner container, the apices of said guides having depressions therein for supporting said pins to maintain said inner container in an elevated position.

2. In a vessel of the type described, an inner and an outer container, the inner container having a. plurality of perforations over the side and bottom walls thereof, upwardly converging diametrically opposite guide rails on the inner wallof said outer container, laterally projecting pins carried by said inner container and adapted to ride upon said guide rails during the elevation ing said depressions, to prevent removal of P said inner container from said outer container.

3. In a cooking utensil of the type described, an inner and an outer container, cooperating devices on the adjacent faces of said containers adapted to cause-the ele: vation of said inner container when said inner container is rotated in either direction, said cooperating-devices including guides on the inner wall of said outer container, and pins laterally projecting from said inner container.

4. In a cooking utensil of the type de scribed, an inner and an outer container, cooperating devices on the adjacent faces of said containers adapted to cause the elevation of said inner container when said inner container is rotated, said cooperating devices including upwardly converging guides on the inner face of said outer container, and pins on said inner container, each one of said guides having a seat at its upper point to receive said pins, to hold said inner container in an elevated position.

5. In a vessel of the type described, an

inner and outer container, means for holding said inner container in a position where its bottom is slightly above the bottom of said outer container, diametrically opposite upwardly converging guide rails on the inner wall of said outer container, pins on said inner container cooperating with said guide rails when said inner container is elevated from said position to a higher position by imparting a rotary motion to said inner container, and means for holding said inner container in said higher position.

6. In a vessel of the type described, an inner and an outer container, diametrically opposite upwardly converging guides on the inner wall of said outer container, and means on said inner container cooperating with said guides to cause upward motion of said inner container when a rotary motion is imparted thereto.

7. In a vessel. of the type described, an inner and an outer container, means for holding said inner containerv in a first posi tion where its bottom is above the bottom of said outer container, means for holding said inner container in a second position substantially above said first position, and means for freelyguiding said inner container from one of said positions to the other by imparting a rotary motion thereto in. either direction.

8. In a cooking-utensil of the type described, an inner and an outer container,

diametrically opposite upwardly converging guides on the Wall of one of said containers, and pins projecting from the other one of said containers adapted to ride on said guides.

9. In av cooking utensil of the type described, an inner and an outer container,

guides on the Wall of one of said containers, and means on the other one of said containers cooperating With said guides to cause elevation of said inner container When a rotary motion is imparted thereto in either direction.
