Absolutely useless, aren't they? Stick for about 6 hours. What's the point? Can't someone actually make one that works?
i have noticed tho, that some packets don't even have them anymore. something to do with saving money i expect.
Cannot physically be opened without making a massive tear down one side. Even the ones with instructions on which corners to pull etc. THEN the sticky tab thing does precisely fack all.
for catching rice as you pour it from the packet into the pan.
I pour all my dried goods into seal-able glass jars. FUCK THE STICKY TABS.
No one re-seals those.
they do the job, but it seems like when you get those ones you seem to get less in the bad.
setting the world to rights since 2000
this day is finally getting going
gets immediately decanted into a container upon opening because otherwise it ends up all over the place thanks to the packets splitting no matter how carefully you open them.
rice = tub
they're not designed to be ripped open.
then rice/pasta/whatever it is goes everywhere BUT I never learn.
rather than a packet of overpriced jasmine scented rice
As stated above it normally means they rip a bit but it's not an issue after I've poured stuff out of them.
Essentially: Rice, cous cous and pasta packets are designed to open. Lentil packets need scissors.
i'd like to spill rice and broken bits of pasta all over his kitchen floor
Have some elastic bands available for those that dont stick. Take even more care when opening the packet you ham fisted fucks.
I nominate this one.
But even then the small tear in the side can open up into a chasm and it spills everywhere! And the sticky tab sticks to the jar, to the rice!
work pretty well for about 5 days
out of the same material of the inner bag of cornflakes? That always opens perfectly, creating a nice little spout for accurate pouring.
Instead you get this rice-haemhorrage. And that odd double-fold at the top makes using scissors almost as bad.
Actually Sainsbury's cous cous is in such a packet, more or less.
Sell rice in tetra-paks, so you can pour the stuff out like orange juice.
but do try using scissors guys.
what's this thread about again?
There's nothing else they have that i want or need.
I might need a new job.
modern life *IS* rubbish.
where albran can live out his mockney oliver twist fantasies and get bummed for tuppence by a rich old man then get stuffed up a chimney.
since I stopped eating rice and pasta 6 months ago. The bulk of my kitcken frustrations now come when trying to roll back the plastic off cucumbers.
i usually can't manage 6 seconds. occupy tilda.
although if you order coffee from here (and probably quite a few other quality roasters) the packets have those press together seal things, kind of like some cheese packets:
2) This thread is about those sticky resealing tabs which are utterly shit regardless of how you open the fucking packet. You belm.
a good insult.
I guess, like licence and license, offense would be the 'verb' form but I'm not sure you could 'offense someone' given we already have the word 'offend' for that.
Also I am not asking for a solution to the sticky thing. Clearly I already have one. I'm asking why they fucking bother to put such a patently useless item on all these packets.
Haven't actually seen those things on pasta packets, so perhaps you should have said lentils at that point.
