Obviously(?) the part of the mystery object is not a drain hole for liquids, unless the object is nearly new. Otherwise, there would be traces of the liquid around the plug/screw head. There are, however, traces of wear on the edges of the slot, indicating that the screw has been tightened at least once. Rounding of the edges around the outside of the screw indicates probably plastic construction. Not quite clear whether this is some kind of seldom-used adjustment or just a flat-head screw for mounting a case onto an object, but most probably the latter.

Need more clues. Probably smaller than a bread box, and i am guessing that the mystery object is small and light enough to be held in one hand. i am also guessing that it, or could be, handheld in use. Need confirmation for the (implied) questions in my description so far.

Will not fit in a bread box, as far as I know that screw has never been removed. The screw is not meant for mounting or adjustment. The object is mostly made of metal. Most adults could pick it up with one hand but would never be hand held for use. It is at least 10 years old and does get occasional use.

Appearance is of some importance, light enough to be held in one hand but never used handheld and won't fit into a bread box. Mostly of metal. Is it a table/floor lamp? Is it - or can it be - part of a home entertainment system? Does it use electricity? Is the mystery object put more or less permanently in place or can it be put away when not in use and pulled out of storage when needed?

Does not make light, you could watch it as it works but I bet no one would call it entertainment. It does use electricity and most likely will be put away when not in use.
Does not get hot enough to cook anything!

Sounds kinda like a coffee maker. You would probably use one of those a lot more than occasionally if you saw fit to get one, but it isn't entirely an impossibility. I am going with something like a vaporizer for humidifying the surrrounding air to help relieve breathing problems such as congestion or sinusitis.

I have at least 6 ways to make coffee but this isn't one of them. It also does not make vapor or steam.......
