Hoyt's patent was intended to "obtain an implement by which a pot can be lifted, and its boiling contents emptied, without liability of scalding the hands by the rising steam; and the nature of my invention consists in a hook of peculiar shape, in combination with a broad lip formed on a suitable handle, in such manner as to safely grasp the edge of a pot, and allow it to be tilted and emptied of its contents without exposing the hand holding the implement over the top of the vessel..."
