Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

מַשְׂרֵת a frying pan, 2 Samuel 13:9 Ch. מַסְרֵת, מַסְרֵיתָא, מַסְרִיתָא id. The origin is uncertain, and it is even doubtful whether the ת be radical or servile. It seems to me rather to be servile, so that the root would be שָׂרָה i.q. شَرِىَ to shine, to sparkle; whence שִׁרְיוֹן and מַשְׂרֵת a brass frying pan, so called from its being polished. That the root סָרַת had the notion of parching is a mere gratuitous assertion.
