The Ukobach, from Dictionnaire Infernal.

In Jacques Auguste Simon Collin de Plancy's 1818 Dictionnaire Infernal, Ukobach or Urobach is described as a "demon of an inferior order". He is shown with a flaming or red body, large eyes and ears and often a pan full of coals or a hot poker. He is said to be the inventor of fireworks and the art of frying foods. He is charged by Belzebuth to maintain the "oil in the infernal boilers", which is made of the blood of the damned, "forged in the west where the sun sets".
