Are You a Spaghetti Breaker-in-Half’er?


I received samples and compensation as a thank you for my time. All opinions and experiences are my own.

I’m a spaghetti breaker-in-half’er. If I don’t break it in half and try to twirl it, I usually end up twirling until half the pasta on my plate is on my dumb fork, and I can’t even fit the blasted thing in my mouth. Not to mention that I’ve flung at least three splats of red sauce onto my face, neck and clothes in the process.

Oh, and the twirl in the spoon thing? I can’t do that without looking like an idiot.

So, I break my spaghetti.

Actually, I was breaking it, but lookee lookee now at this kitchen shortcut from Mueller’s — Pot-Sized Pasta! Pot-sized thin spaghetti, to be exact.

    Wow what a great trick for removing skin and I always break in half! Happy someone finally has pot sized spaghetti!

    It’s about time someone thought of this. I am definitely a breaker in half-er. In fact, I break it before I even go to cook it because I store it in a shorter container in the pantry.
