Cooking pasta for one is a tricky affair. It’s too easy to cook too much. Or too little. Even if you get it right, it’s still lonely as hell. While this I Could Eat A Horse Spaghetti Measuring Tool could still hit or miss the right amount of carbs to fill up the void in your stomach, it does make measuring the amount of pasta to cook a heck of a lot simpler. And maybe just a little more fun.
Made by Stefán Pétur Sólveigarson from Iceland, the cooking tool features four cutouts of different forms on its body. The idea is to fill whichever cutout you want with uncooked spaghetti strands to measure the portion of pasta you will use.
The I Could Eat A Horse cutouts consist of a child’s body, a man’s body, a woman’s body and a horse. Yep, a horse. If you’re so hungry you can eat a horse, just cram as much spaghetti into that donkey and that’s how much you’re supposed to consume.
While any good spaghetti measuring tool can probably get you just as good a result, this thing definitely looks like a heck of a lot of fun. Well, maybe not so much fun if you’re always using the horse. According to the creator, that’s actually his idea of a family-sized portion. Dude, you will need to lose some weight.
