Info / Description: The pasta server is made out of one piece of elastic plastic and has a double purpose. In addition to being a pasta server it is also a handy cooking tool. When cooking spaghetti, it's easy to end up with the wrong amount, we tend to measure by eye and often make mistakes. With the spaghetti server and doser things become simple as it can help you measure out just enough pasta for you and family or friends...

Pull the spaghetti out of the package, to almost half the length.
Place them between the handles as close to the corner as possible and press gently, allowing the pasta to spread across the ridges.

Release you grip a little and pull out the desired number of portions.
Each individual group represents a single person portion. Release the handle and let the rest of spaghetti slide back into the pack.

What makes the Pasta doser different from other of it's kind is that the measuring process is done on the fly, without the need to separate portions by hand. This not only makes portioning easier by removing any guess work, but also saves time and prevents us from cooking too much food, that will inevitably go to waste.
