For years we thought the hole in our spaghetti spoon was for letting water drain away. And oh how wrong we were.
A culinary wizard has enlightened us all on Imgur by posting a picture demonstrating what the hole is actually for.
And amazingly it's for measuring out one portion of dry spaghetti. Who knew?
To double check that measuring spaghetti is actually what the hole is for, we did some digging and discovered that it's definitely legit - as demonstrated by this Amazon product description.
Good times, now go forth and make perfect amounts of spaghetti.
