Primo pasta pal.

Coax your pasta out of its boiling water at that perfectly al-dente moment with this brass colander ladle. The shallow-angled handle (with a hooked end for hanging) makes scooping and skimming a cinch, and the perforated, roomy basket will have your pasta out in just a couple scoops. Not one to be pigeon-holed, this ladle is also useful for retrieving blanched veggies before an ice bath or rescuing a bouquet garni from a finished soup.
