Solve two small but frustrating kitchen conundrums with this Pasta Portion-Control and Storage Box Top. With the pasta box top securely attached to the end of a typical one-pound box of dried pasta, you can measure out precise two-ounce servings and keep the unused portion from spilling out of the box.
We've all been there. You open a box of spaghetti to prepare it as part of a meal. First question: how much to make? If you make the whole box, you might be stuck with leftovers. If you make part of the box, you're faced with question number two: how do you keep the box closed so the unused portion doesn't spill out in your cupboard?
Our own group was divided between those who try to somehow wedge the flaps at the end of the box closed and those who reach for a roll of tape. The first method is notoriously unreliable, and the second means ripping off the tape the next time and putting on a new piece if you still don't finish the box.
With the pasta box top, the unused portion stays safe and sound inside the box. And thanks to the portion-control opening, preparing just what you need has never been easier. Just pop the top and pour out as many perfect two-ounce portions as you need. Sure, leftover pasta is yummy, but it's a shame if it goes to waste. And for those of us trying to manage our portion sizes, this is a dream come true.
The portion-control and storage pasta box topper fits securely on the end of most standard one-pound boxes of any "strand-style" pasta: spaghetti, capellini, vermicelli, angel hair, ciriole, fedilini, spaghettini...well, you get the idea. And between uses, just pop it in the dishwasher for easy cleaning.
