Totally not historical - I need a spaghetti jar

Postby Shadowcat » Mon Mar 26, 2007 4:13 pm

I like long spaghetti, and have been trying to find a tall spaghetti jar to keep it in. Any ideas? The jar needs to be at least 50cm/20" tall. I can find loads of short ones, but I like long spaghetti. I have tried Lakeland, John Lewis, The Good Cookshop, and Heal's.

Chemistry lab equipment,for collecting gases over water.
Basically it's a glass cylinder that looks exactly like a spaghetti jar!

Aah, right. I avoided science like mad at school, and it's in the dark ages anyway. My daughter-in-law-elect teaches science - I'll see what she can find - thanks for the suggestion.

Looks wonderful, but none within easy reach of London, without a car, and I don't drive. I'll see if I can find the one in Colchester if I get to the Oyster Faire.

Thanks anyway - will keep my eyes open if we are going anywhere near one.

Have you tried tinternet - someone must do maile order long spaghetti jars.

As for long spaghetti, the best I ever found was in a shop in Peterfield donkeys years ago - the packet was the length of the long stuff you get but each strand of spaghetti was U shaped so it was twice the length of the packet - you only needed about four bits fo a platefull!!

Yep, Google'd and Yahoo'd! The longest I can get is half the length I want! Going to raid John Lewis next time I am in town - and all the decent cooks shops in Shaftesbury avenue. Was just trying to save myself the effort of walking the streets, if you see what I mean!!

Could you put a cork stopper on one of those tall flower vases you sometimes see?


Because there would have to be three of them.
