Spaghetti Tester – Episode 2: Al Dente Rising


Episode 1 back on December 27, 2007 featured a multipurpose tool which measured your portion before testing its firmness.

Now comes a tool dedicated to answering just one question: how al dente is your spaghetti?

Bonus: It was designed by Tobias Huys.

From the website:

    Al Dente Spaghetti Tester

    Anyone can cook spaghetti.

    Nonetheless it demands a certain skill.

    Particularly if you wish your spaghetti to be neither chewy nor starchy, but rather to enjoy it the only possible way: al dente.

    The fine line between hard and soft, firm to the bite and a perfect vehicle for the sauce.

    The Al Dente spaghetti tester is a beautiful object which is more reliable than any recommended cooking time on the packet.

    8.5" long.

And here I thought I was smart using a fork all these years instead of a $50 bill. Now I realize I'm just a yahoo.
