When we saw a picture going viral implying we've been draining our beloved spaghetti wrong all along, we couldn't believe it.

Twitter user @Daibellaaa was one of many people to share an easier way to drain pasta, which involves putting the strainer in the pot, then tipping it over to let the water spill out. This way, the pasta stays in the same container the whole time - and your spaghetti stays far away from your potentially dirty sink basin.

Genius, no? Well, not so fast. Betty Gold, senior product analyst in the Kitchen Appliances & Technology Lab at the Good Housekeeping Institute, isn't impressed. "I would make the argument that this isn't that innovative of an idea, considering how many saucepans come with lids that do that straining for you, so you don't need a colander at all - isn't that smarter?" 

She also points out that the chances of having a colander that nests perfectly inside your saucepan are fairly low. "If it's the tiniest bit too small, you risk pouring your pasta down the drain or into the basin of your sink," she says. Plus, if you like to rinse your noodles before eating them, this trick will actually complicate matters even more.

Team news: Celtic vs Hibernian

  Team news: Celtic vs Hibernian Celtic return to domestic action against newly promoted side Hibernian after a convincing win over Anderlecht in the Champions League. Former Hoops manager Neil Lennon is now in charge at the Edinburgh side, who made their long awaited return to the top flight after a three-year absence. They have started the season with a mixed bag of results in the league, winning three, drawing three and losing once at home to Hamilton – while Celtic won 2-0 at Ibrox last time out in the league. Brendan Rodgers’ side remain unbeaten domestically, and are two points clear of Aberdeen in second and seven clear of the Easter Road side in fourth. Hibernian haven’t beaten Celtic since January 2009 at Celtic Park – which is the venue for Saturday’s game which will kick-off at 3pm. Celtic Scott Brown went off with a tight hamstring just before the 70 minute mark on Wednesday and won’t feature against his former club or for Scotland over the international break. Stuart Armstrong was an unused substitute in midweek after straining his calf and is also out of Saturday’s game and Scotland’s two World Cup qualifiers. Anthony Ralston has a slight tear in his meniscus but can still train with the knee injury and will be monitored over the international break. Erik Sviatchenko and Eboue Kouassi are both close to returning to action from a knee and ankle injury respectively and are training with the first-team.

So while this trick isn't going to hurt your pasta, per se, it's not for everyone - or every dish. But if you're still convinced you need an in-pot strainer, Gold recommends the Bialetti Pasta Pot with Strainer Lid.
