    Would you understand it if I said 'cooking spade'?

    Not a teacher.

    'Can you bring me cookware which looks like a small spade?'
    Could you imagine what it is?

    If you don't know the name you can describe what it does.

    Re: What do we call for this?

    Jasonree123456, the question you need is "What do we call this?" (remove the word "for" from your question). Alternatively, you can say "What is the word for this?" or "What is the name of this thing/item?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
