Cast iron roasting rack, c 1750. Geared mechanisms mounted above a kitchen fireplace. A loop of rope connected the wooden pulley wheel at the rear of the jack with a similar wheel at the end of a spit on the hearth. An iron weight attached to the rope coiled around the central drum of the jack was cranked to a high position. The descending weight drove the jack's rotation and that of the spit, thus turning the meat in front of the cooking fire. Ensured meat evenly cooked.

Made from cast iron, this roasting jack would have only been afforded by the wealthiest of households in its day. This was leading-edge cooking technology in the mid Century.

This primitive, blacksmith forged sadiron is also called a ‘slave iron’ or  'tattle-tale bell' iron due to the small metal pea or ball that rattles inside the hammered and rolled hollow handle when the iron moves.  The story goes that as long as the mistress of the house could hear the rattle on ironing day, she knew the servants were working.
