There’s much to love in this handy little tool from the UK’s critically acclaimed Joseph Joseph. But when you get right down to it, for us, it’s not just the waste not-want not means to measuring out pasta for 1 to 4 servings. Or even its compact size. The way it opens and closes with just a slide and glide of the tab.
