description

Iron round or flat rod (approx. 40-100 cm) with a pointed end, bent or not bent, which is used to start the fire in a fireplace, in a stove, a heating boiler or an oven. Usually the poker ends in a hook or a ring with which it can be hung.

For the fireplace or the kettle, there are sets with a poker, an oven-rake, a fire shovel (stoker) and clinker tongs or a pair of fire tongs. [MOT]
