I guess anyone who has ever cooked spaghetti knows how hard it can be in the beginning to know exactly how much to put in the pot. Usually you put too much or too little. You will find that it’s hard at first to hit it spot on, which is not only really annoying but also a waste of food. Of course, since you are not equally as hungry every day, you will need to calibrate your measuring method with the amount you think you can eat each time. Let me tell you, most people get it wrong more than right. So is there really no other way to measure spaghetti that makes at least a little more sense than just grabbing a handful and putting it in the pot?
As always, we won’t leave you hanging. There is actually one way in particular that will allow you to measure your spaghetti like a boss. Have a look at this new and absolutely geeky I Could Eat A Horse spaghetti measuring tool. Now you will definitely have an easier way to choose the right amount of spaghetti to cook instead of guessing and wasting. This truly interesting concept comes from Icelandic designer Stefán Pétur Sólveigarson.
You’ll be happy to know that if you ever feel like you could eat a horse, that amount is available on the stick as well. This nifty little thing is available at the Reykjavík Corner Store and sells for just €12.90. Now if only someone could come up with a correct rice measuring tool as well, my days in the kitchen would be way more inspiring. Why waste food when you could save food and spend that money on something so much more fun and necessary instead of just throwing it away?
