I am a big-time (and big) home baker, but I have no idea what this thing is, let alone what it s called. What is it used for? What is it called in your language?

Perhaps it s a pestle. No mortar, though, so, perhaps not. It looks as if it could be dangerous, should it fall into the wrong hands.

Yes, Spinney, my first thought was a pestle, although the handle seems a little long for that.

Is it a baking equipment or something that is used for making drinks (like "caipirinha", the brazilian drink)? Used for macerate lemons?...
It seems to me like one of the pieces of a cocktail set like the one below... Sadly, I don t know the specific name... Sorry...

If that s what it is, it s called a "muddler", and it is used to "muddle fruit". So, Spinney, it is a pestle, just for a specific use.

It s called "paka" in Polish (at least in my family) and it was used for mixing egg yolks and sugar. Usually made of wood.

If it isn t a muddler, then maybe there isn t an English name for it. Maybe it s part of Slavic culture or something.

It s a "pestle" but most people wouldn t know it except to say "mortar and pestle."  Maybe use this image instead so it has some context of use?

To be more precise , this piece of  equipment is used for   creaming (mixing)  the ingredients  such as  butter,  flour , eggs. I  guess that   pestle is a good suggestion , although it is  used for  grinding , crushing  them , and  additionally,  as it was suggested , pastle is  much  shorter one. I  am  even not sure that  it is  possible to come across  the device in other countries.  In my  language it is called  "club"  (literal translation)  or  the proper name  for it  is , to my amazement,  wooden  sphere for  creaming the dough . Thanks  anyway.

In the US, we use the back of a wooden spoon, which is essentially the same as half of this "club" (clearly named for its shape).
