Isn't it a spaghetti spoon or something like that?

Or is it a slotted spoon, seen HERE but made of metal and not wood?

the hole makes liquids swirl more when you stir. It helps sauces to become smoother and emulsify better. If your making risotto, polenta or oatmeal it makes it creamer.

It also cuts way down on the calories if you eat soup with it.

Are y'all sure that this thang isn't somehow related to that donut-shaped soap mentioned over yonder in the other thread?

I always thought that hole was used to put in the correct amount of spaghetti noodles into a pot for one person. It's worked for me anyways.
