1. Bottles: Ever bought a plate of french fries only to struggle with getting a sufficient amount of ketchup out of the glass? There’s actually a sweet spot on the bottle, the ‘57’ symbol, that will get that ketchup out much more easily than tapping on the bottom of the bottle.
2. Snack: Getting stuck with a snack without a spoon can be one of the most disappointing feelings. Did you know that you can actually improvise a spoon our of the foil wrapper?
3. Spaghetti: Are you one of those people that just improvise the amount of pasta they put in their pot and end up with too much or too little? Well, worry no more. You’re spaghetti scoop can also function as a measurement tool. The little hold in the middle with big enough to fit enough pasta for one serving.
4. Spoons: If you though that the hole in the handle of your pot was there for decoration, you are wrong. These slots are actually made for the purpose of holding your mixing spoon and prevent making a mess out of drips and spills.
