I have this old plastic pasta scoop whose only purpose is to scoop and stir spaghetti. Beyond that, it is a big mess and not worth the hassle.
OrBlue’s pasta scoop is multi-purpose, and as I like to think outside the box, has uses beyond spaghetti, spiral pasta, or linguini.
It also makes a great scoop for vegetables, salads, and more.
The strainer basket on the bottom is a nice feature, as it drains water from pasta (or vegetables), without anything getting stuck within the grooves.
The handle is sturdy and quite comfortable – made from a nice soft material. The handle and fork are made from stainless steel and seem to be great quality.
The ease of cleaning the forks of this scoop is 100x easier than our old plastic scoop – pasta goo wipes off without a struggle. On a side note, it seems to be resistant to water marks, so it actually looks clean once dried.
Once your scoop is clean and ready to be put away, it can be placed in a drawer or hung up via its handy hook hole!
I have many OrBlue kitchen products, and they never cease to please our family – sleek in design and quality, you just cannot go wrong.
*** I received this product at a reduced cost for my fair and fabulous review ***
Anyone who eats a lot of pasta will appreciate this product. A pasta server is very useful to have for all sorts of types of pasta, and this one from Orblue has a lot going for it. Compared to cheaper plastic types I've used in the past, this lightweight stainless steel version is great.
Obviously, this pasta server is very easy to use and doesn't need much explaining. If you've ever used one before, you'll understand how to use it right away. However this product is made of a strong and very light steel, meaning it won't bend or warp under intense head, and it won't ever rust. It's very easy to clean as well, which I always appreciate.
The handle on this pasta strainer is longer than my last one, which I was a bit unsure of at first, as it takes up more space in the kitchen drawers. However I saw the benefits of this when I was making a very big serving of pasta in a very deep pot, and this was able to reach all the way down easily. The handle is easy to grip, and it also has a hook at the end which means it can be hung up once it's clean, a feature I'm always happy to see!
All in all, this past strainer gets the job done and has some extra features that put it above the rest. It's well worth the cost and a good idea for anybody who likes to make pasta on a regular basis.
