Just when we thought we had our basic kitchen utensils all figured out, along comes this information on the real reason for the hole in the humble pasta spoon.
It seemed everyone thought the hole was for drainage purposes only, but when Australian Facebook page My Smoko Break revealed its true purpose as a way of measuring one serve of spaghetti, minds were blown across the internet. The post has been shared more than 47,000 times and attracted more than 23,000 comments in a week and leaves us here at The Retiree wondering what other mystery functions are lying undiscovered in our crowded cutlery draw.
Did you know about this? What other kitchen hacks have you only just discovered?
