Cooking fails are something everyone is privy to - whether it is accidentally putting salt in place of sugar, or spilling too much of an ingredient into a dish. These little accidents are not just limited to beginner cooks, but experts as well. Although there are many known ways to fix these by using some simple kitchen hacks, a Twitter user thought of a unique and innovative way by himself. When he was faced with the problem of adding too much pepper to his poached egg, he used a vacuum cleaner to remove the excess spice. Watch the video here:
The video was shared on Twitter by user with the handle @shange033. The user carefully tried to remove the excess pepper on his poached egg with the help of a miniature vacuum cleaner. The hack was working perfectly well initially, with much of the pepper gone from the dish. However, the excessive pressure exerted by the vacuum cleaner sucked the entire egg into itself!
The hilarious video soon went viral on Twitter, garnering over 7.1 million views and counting. Over 450k users liked the video and almost 150k retweeted it. The cleaning fail also received nearly three thousand comments from users, who couldn't get enough of laughing at it. While some users said that the video left them in splits, others commented about other easier methods that the person could have used to remove the excess pepper from the omelette. Take a look:
