How to Use

Our spaghetti tester and steam release guarantees your pasta prowess reaches its boiling point, ensuring every meal is a pasta-abilities masterpiece!

  1. As a spaghetti tester, place first the tester on the rim of the pot.
  2. Then, insert an uncooked noodle in the hole of the fishing rod and ensure the noodle's lower half is submerged in the boiling water. There are two holes in the fishing rod to fit two noodles.
  3. After a few minutes, easily check if the spaghetti is ready.
  4. As a steam releaser, place it on the pot's rim to keep the lid lifted. It fits many pot sizes.
  5. Use a dishwasher or handwash to clean.

Cool and quirky kitchen tool

Works well and avoids having to grab spaghetti with tongs to test for doneness. I never time my pasta cooking, only by bite so this works great. Certainly a conversation piece especially before it's in use and sitting on counter. Can give a "phallic" impression!

Puts a smile on my face

Not many things make me happy to cook, but this little fella keeps an eye over my pasta and sure is fun checking his fishing line to see if dinner is ready yet
