The Real Reason There's A Hole In Spaghetti Spoons


Published at 12:52pm 30th June 2016.

Most of us have got a spaghetti spoon in our kitchen drawers and most of us would not second-guess the purpose of the hole in the middle.

Surely it’s for draining the water? Well, apparently not.

A photo has been shared online and it has revealed the real reason behind the hole, making pasta lovers lives a little easier…

Did you know, that the hole in your spaghetti spoon holds the recommended portion for one serving size of spaghetti.

User PolarChi posted the image alongside the caption: “Did you know, that the hole in your spaghetti spoon holds the recommended portion for one serving size of spaghetti.”

Mind blowing.

Next time we go to throw the wrong amount of pasta into boiling water, we will be sure to give this a try.
