Portion control

For those who are looking to control their portion size, this neat silicone tool measures out a healthy 75g portion of dry pasta. You can hang it over the pan for cooking then just lift up to drain, ready for serving. You can also use to cook different vegetables in the same pan and it folds flat when not in use. Silicone Pasta Basket, Ref 14653, £7.99, Lakeland.
