With these tongs you grab the spaghetti from the bowl and put it on the plates. The jaws are broad and serrated to grip the top layer of spaghetti.
When one grabs too deep, the spaghetti is difficult to grasp or one takes too much at once. The jaws are slightly slanted on the axis so that one can easily enter the bowl and still use the full width of the jaws.
See also the spaghetti or pasta spoon. [MOT]
