What is it?

Good afternoon all,

I recently entered an online competition, apparently, because I had a call advising I'd won a pack of Joseph Joseph kitchenware.

I was apprehensive because I didn't recall entering, but I was assured it wasn't a marketing ploy, and a few days later, a courier delivered a box of kitchenware, knives, chopping boards, colander, and a device that I have never seen previously.

Can anybody tell me what it is? I've searched the JJ site, but don't see it there. It's adjustable, from 1 - 4, and the centre hole increases with the number. It's about 8 cm diameter.

Any guesses/advice would be appreciated.

Incidentally, the value of the 'prize' from the JJ site, is about $240.00, worth having, and very stylish.

My guess, without a picture, is that it's a measuring device for pasta servings.

Yup, it's for measuring spaghetti - the wider the opening, the more servings. There is a device just like that for sale on Amazon, and eBay. The image on eBay even shows it with the spaghetti noodles in it:

That was for a box of kitchen items, not just the one thing. See the original post.

You're welcome, Ross. BTW, welcome to DC, too. I hope you will stick around here to chat about food now that we've helped you solve this puzzle.

I'll be doing that, and my first search will be for the PERFECT Blueberry Muffin recipe.

I do have a very yummy blueberry muffin recipe, "Aunt Maude's 5-Star Blueberry Muffins". It's one that I've made for decades. If you're interested, I can post it later tonight or sometime tomorrow.

Thanks for the offer CG. Please post.

Sorry I haven't been back earlier. I haven't been able to sign in. Computers $@#^%&

Just searched online CG, and it's there, so unless your version is different, no need to post. Thanks either way.

Ross, I think the online recipe is different than the one I have. I'll compare late tonight to see if it's a big difference. In the meantime, if you could post a link to the one you found it would make it easier for me.

And I completely understand the computer thing. My "blue" vocabulary has grown since I started using them.

Ross Martin, I made this recipe not so long ago and took
it down to our Community Center to share at our Coffee Bar

https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/68...berry-muffins/

They really where "to die for", that's exactly the remarks I
got from my neighbors, I'm not kidding you!

AND Blueberries are pretty inexpensive right now
