Used for squeezing the juices out of a duck carcass in preparing the traditional dish canard au sang, also known as "pressed duck", this rare French silverplate duck press' screw-type appliance was both efficient and easy to use. At one time, no respectable French restaurant would be without one of these grand devices, but today, even new presses are hard to find.

In the 19th century, the Tour d'Argent restaurant in Paris developed a complex dish alternately called canard au sang (literally "duck in its blood"), Canard à la presse, Caneton à la presse, Caneton Tour d'Argent, or in English, pressed duck. The juice which has been pressed from the carcass is thickened and flavored with butter and Cognac, and then combined with the duck breast to finish cooking. These presses could also be used to make the famous duck confit, as well as to make seafood or other stocks,
