The hole in the pasta spoon myth
The hole in our spaghetti spoon is the perfect pasta serving we were in desperate need of! You probably have heard or read this statement somewhere, as it went viral after a couple of users “discovered” that the hole in this spaghetti spoon can be used to measure how much dry pasta a person will need per serving. True or another viral false news?
Sorry to burst your bubble, but this statement is not true, at least not in all spaghetti spoon cases. In fact, the person who made this “discovery” just got lucky with his spoon. Every brand uses a different-size hole, which makes it impossible for each spaghetti spoon to hold the same portion of spaghetti. In fact, and as it was known before that wrong trick went viral, the hole‘s function is mainly to drain water.
