Guy Shows 'Correct' Way To Strain Pasta Claiming We've Been Doing It All Wrong

Guy Shows 'Correct' Way To Strain Pasta Claiming We've Been Doing It All Wrong

A TikTok user has shared what he claims to be the 'correct' way to strain pasta:

We've all been there. You've ended up making too much pasta and tried to juggle your tools. A heavy carb-filled pan in one hand and a sieve in the other.

Pouring the pasta into the strainer sometimes means that boiling water can be known to spill out - scolding your arms. It's not pleasant.

This TikTok user, who wants to be referred to as Ensee, might have the solution to this problem - simply popping the sieve/colander inside the pan and pouring all the water through.

Ensee, a musician from Newark, New Jersey, told LADbible: "I found this method when I was about to strain the pasta and had the sieve in hand but got a phone call.

TikToker Shows That We've Been Peeling Carrots Wrong All This Time

"I put the sieve on top of the pan without thinking about it and realised it fit the shape perfectly. Usually doing it the old way can strain your wrist if the pot is heavy so when I did it like that for the first time it put a lot less strain on my wrist and it just made draining pasta feel a bit more practical."

Some people were amazed, with one commenting: "TikTok has taught me more than school ever has."

Another added: "I'm so gonna be doing this now lol, why have I never thought about this before[?]," and a third wrote: "Wow how do I not know this. I've found out from TikTok I've been doing loads of things wrong."

Some weren't so quick to take on the new hack for pasta draining. One said: "No, you are actually supposed to pour it in the strainer but you do you." Sassy.

Another commented: "It's actually meant to be poured out because you're meant to rinse the pasta after boiling." Not sure this is entirely true, but each to their own.
