Cookery fan tries Italian grandmother's spaghetti-opening hack – and is stunned when it actually works

IF you've ever ended up with spaghetti all over the floor when trying to open a new packet, then this hack is for you.

An Italian grandmother recently went viral with her clever trick to easily and quickly open a pack of the long pasta in one sharp move.



In the video, shared on TikTok, Nonna Elda explained: "You never cut the spaghetti with scissors".

She then took the packet, held it firmly around the middle with both hands and smacked the end on the counter top.

The action resulted in the packet almost magically opening, with no spaghetti lost in the process.

The woman filming the video could be heard gasping after Elda demonstrated the trick, with both the chef and the camera lady then struggling to control their laughter.

"You can just give it a good smack and there you go," was written over the clip.

After seeing the video of the hack, another TikTok user, Anna, stitched herself giving it a go.

"I have never wanted something to work so badly," she exclaimed at the beginning, before trying to work herself up to try it.

"I don't know why this is stressing me out – if the grandma can do it, I can do it," she said.
