For-Ghetti is a specially designed spaghetti fork which supposedly allows for easier twirling of spaghetti. It includes four nubs on the outer tines, designed to keep pasta attached more securely to the fork. Does it work? Let’s find out in today’s review.

I ran across for-Ghetti while perusing Amazon and was intrigued by its unusual design. The utensil’s sole purpose is to facilitate eating spaghetti, which is achieved by the nubs on the outer tines that are designed to grip onto spaghetti. The makers of this product would have us believe that regular forks are problematic because spaghetti easily slides off, although that hasn’t posed much of a problem for consumers for the past few hundred years.
I tested the for-Ghetti alongside a regular fork with some spaghetti to see if there was much of a difference. Although the for-Ghetti may have held a very slight advantage regarding its ability to cling to spaghetti better than a regular fork, I would say this advantage is marginal at best. When I tried eating a plate of spaghetti with a regular fork and the for-Ghetti, I saw virtually no difference in the experience.
Perhaps this would be a good way for children to twirl their spaghetti more easily, or to work as “training wheels” for this activity, but in my opinion the for-Ghetti is too specialized to warrant the cost. It provides little advantage, and only serves a single function.
