One Italian granny's tip for opening spaghetti has gone viral.

It was shared on TikTok and people can't believe it really works.

Sometimes what seems like the simplest ideas turn out to be the best.

Step away from the scissors and try this out for your next dinner.

The TikTok creator is Elda, also known as Nonna Elda Cooks.

Watch her trick below:

Fans have been trying it out.

She holds the packet of spaghetti to the camera, tightens the wrapper so it's stretched taut at the top, and whacks the packet on the kitchen counter.

The force opens the packet, leaving the spaghetti intact.

"If this works and I never knew about it, and I'm Italian, I'm going to be very devastated," said one viewer.

One person commented on the video: "I didn't know that was a thing that could be done. So cool!"

"This changed my life!!!!" raved another.

"I AM ASTONISHED" said a third.

"Omg guess I been doing that wrong" confessed one.

Would you give it a go?

TikTok has plenty of hacks.
