As soon as Gary said Easter? Kerching! But it really was a stab in the dark. I feel a bit guilty pinching it off Gary though because I think he may have got it first. Oh well. I'll go searching and get back.

Asparagus grader no

vegetable cutter no

But I am now in a quandary, because someone has given me the correct answer by PM but doesn't want to claim the win. The problem is that the web link supplied by them is exactly the same object that I found, but it is called something different in the place where I found it. And I have already told someone no when it could be correct. All I can do is to 'fess up here I think.

My original source was here original and it was called a pasta measurer.

The other place is here Alternative and it is called a spaghetti measurer.

The word I was looking for was pasta, but given that spaghetti is a form of pasta, in which case William was in fact correct and in all honesty, and with your agreement I have to award the win to William. I am very grateful to my correspondent that gave me the second link, and they know who they are.

You have to remember that in the UK, proper spaghetti comes in tins

Pasta is dry stuff that comes in 1- or 2-pound boxes at the grocery store, in about 2038 different varieties these days. Elbow macaroni, whole wheat elbow macaroni, rotini, whole wheat rotini, tri-color rotini...

You boil some water and dump some pasta in, and in a few minutes you drain it and add cheese.

Interesting variation: I bought some frozen Italian beef (immediately, everyone more than 100 miles from Chicago says "What's that?") and added water to stretch the liquid. There's enough beef for about three meals. After that, I started adding frozen meatballs. Then I started adding pasta to the pot and, after it was cooked, fishing it out with a slotted spoon and adding cheese.

well the sort of pasta you would usually measure with it is spaghetti - or in fact all the long thin ones.
As 'how to use' you select the amount of portions on the side and then you make a bundle that just fits through the hole. It probably takes a few attempts until you know which size accomodates your portion.

Ok, girls and guys - what is the follwoing object used for?



I've no idea what it's officially called, so I'll go by a proper description of what it is used for.
I've not been following the thread closely, so please alert me if the item was already used and I'll try to find something else.
