Have you ever wondered why every single spaghetti spoon has a hole in it?

Some people think the hole is to drain additional water off of the spaghetti. That seems like a logical answer but is incorrect. The real reason behind the hole is quite brilliant.


It's to help you measure out servings prior to boiling your noodles.

If you're like me you grab a handful of spaghetti and toss it in the boiling pot - hoping there's enough to feed everyone but not so much that there will be leftovers for a week.

That's where the hole comes in.

Stuff dry noodles in the hole until no more can fit - that bundle equals one serving.

Who knew?!?
